This place looks like it has not been updated since it was built. They charge way too much for what you get. Take the name Sea View with a grain of salt, our view in our room was a back alley. However, the sheets and towels were clean and it is really the only affordable option in Manhattan Beach. It's...

It is old n very outdated, the furniture is old n smelly at $300 a night my husband n I were expecting at least a nice view. We booked for the large deck view n I have to say that...

My wife and I were in town for business and had no idea of the area or anything Manhattan beach. James and his crew's customer service was amazing. Every time we saw them, everyone of them asks, how are you, can we get you anything, etc. We had one of the apartments and it was perfect. extremely clean and the...

My flight got in a little early and I was able to check in a bit early. which was nice. Very friendly hotel receptionist. I went cheap and selected a room with no view since I wasn't going to be there very long. The views did look great from the rooms with a view though. Big bathroom, good working air...

Love this place! The guys that run it are very friendly and helpful. We had a room with a nice big deck and a full kitchen (dishwasher too). Living area in front of the glass sliding door going out on to the deck. Sit out there in the morning, have coffee, view the ocean and town. There is a market...

BEAUTIFUL sunset ocean view!!! Great location!! Close to the airport, the beach is a mere 3 blocks downhill, and excellent parking which is hard to find in the area. The view from our room was spectacular! We stayed on the top floor above the lobby; we could see from Malibu to Redondo Beach! You could even make out the surfer...

I adore this hotel - I stay every time I visit California. The rooms are very simply decorated and nostalgic (lots of 90s pastel hues all over), and while it's not the most luxurious or high-tech (the internet was a bit shoddy at times), it's pristinely clean, totally charming and run by lovely and hilarious staff. It's also located perfectly...

Our room was pretty small, as was the bathroom, but the patio, view and the location totally made up for it. This is a true beach town hotel, the staff are super friendly, and the location was perfect. We had a car, but never even moved it out of the FREE parking, since it was so nice to walk to...

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The staff were extra friendly. There are many very good restaurants near the hotel. Our room had a clear view of the ocean. Only a few blocks from the beach, it is easy yo walk to the beach. The walk back is a little challenging as it is uphill. Highly recommend...
