Done use the pull out couch! Ouch!

While I gave many high marks in many areas, the pullout couch was terrible! Every metal spring in it could be felt through the 3 inch poorly made matress. The ONLY thing that staff could do was bring an air mattress. I was deeply disappointed but the person sleeping in the bed in our party was willing to deal with it, although not happy with the bed/air mattress. I couldn't belive they didn't have another room with a real bed in it unless I wanted to pay $100 more! Really? They just have pullout couches. Also, the bedding for the pullout couch: the matress cover was quite used and should have been replaced. I would use the hotel again but only for 1 or 2 people. Breakfast was a good variety and the staff all around was very pleasant. They just need better rooms to be proud of to offer the public.

Nice hotel minutes away from LAX. Worth the drive.

Pros: The studios are well equipped and the breakfast was better than the average hotel of its size.
Cons: Hotel driveway was a bit tight to get in and out. Pool is a bit small.
Location: Very close to beautiful Manhattan Beach. Many restaurants, gas stations, and shops.
I would strongly recommend staying in this hotel if you want to stay close to the airport but still close to a nice beach. It's not a big hotel but it has plenty of parking. The studios don't seem to have king beds, which was a bit of a let down. They have queen beds and sofa beds. The kitchen had a nice size and was fully equipped with a full size fridge, sink, stove, and dish washer! The only complaint I would have would be the pool which is kind of small and had way too many kids playing around. That was the only part that wasn't relaxing.

it could have been worse

Bed wasn't comfortable. Room didn't seem very clean at all. There were a couple things that made me wonder if it had even been cleaned for us

Perfect for family...

Relaxed family setting, more like an apt., nice equipped modern kitchen. Very clean. Nice assortment of breakfast buffet food. Just a few blocks from the beach/pier.

Good quality for the money.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
We needed a good place to stay for 2 nights for a friend's birthday party in Manhattan Beach. Room was more than adequate. Kitchen facilities. Comfortable bed. Large bathroom and shower area. It is basically a suite set-up and although we did not use the kitchen facilities, they would be great for those who want to take advantage of that feature. Location is great. $25.00 cab ride from LAX. Close to the beach and a shopping center about a 10 minute walk away.

Low Cost, New Room, Great Location, Attentive Staff

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
At first we were leery to stay in anything less than a four star hotel. However, the Easter holiday brought everyone on the planet to the area at one time. It proved to be a gift for us. The hotel is in the midst of renovations and we received a brand new room which was clean, clean! Also the hotel is minutes from Manhattan Beach (not walkable) but less than a 5 minute drive. Also the staff were kind and attentive. Myrna at the front desk saved us from near starvation and provided us with the number to the most delicious pizza place ever!Marguerita in housekeeping cleaned our already clean room to perfection. Bottom line: don't knock this hotel 'til you've tried it. It exceeded all of our expectaions and didn't break the bank.
