“We got what we paid for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Full disclosure: My nickname is The Frugal Guy because I am usually a bargain hunter when it comes to hotel stays. This trip however, the wife did not want to play hotel roulette on the discount websites. She's been working long hours for a long time and wanted to be sure her Southern California vacation delivered what she was looking for. That meant a guaranteed room, facing the ocean, with a King Size bed, high level of cleanliness and breakfast included. We did some research and decided to go for it all with a three day stay at Beach House at Hermosa Beach. With the third day, we got a bit of a discount on the rate across the three nights of our stay. As we checked in mid week, we were also able to secure a room on the third floor, above the hustle and bustle of The Strand. We also opted to pay the premium to face the ocean... guaranteeing three spectacular sunsets and the sound of the ocean rocking us to sleep and the sound of volley ball being played well past sunset and early with the sunrise. The rooms are clean, well equipped with a 47 inch screen LG Flat Screen above the gas fireplace in the living room area and another 20 something inch LG in the bedroom area of this split level over-sized studio apartment unit with two burner stove, mini fridge and fully equipped kitchenette (glasses, dishes, flatware, corkscrew, wine glasses, et al.) One glitch with this arrangement: using the remote to turn of the little TV as we were about to doze off, turned on the larger set at the same time, ultimately requiring the need to get up and aim the remote from a point beyond the bed area.
The bathroom was big, clean and had separate shower and spa tub. The water pressure was typically muted, as all California Hotels use limiters in their showers to conserve water. Finally the towels were big and plush.
ONE COMPLAINT: From the wife, who is lactose intolerant. Breakfast, which was primarily bread, cereal, some fruit and coffee, should have offered either soy milk or yogurt. We wound up buying some of our own at the Ralph's Supermarket across the street.
YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW VALET PARKING is $24 per day for in and out usage. They park the cars in a municipal garage which backs right up to the hotel. The signage says the garage is 24 hours, so there might be a way to simply park there and use the meters, but the wife insisted we go all in on this trip, so I sprang for the valet...which , in one more moment of disclosure... ate at me just a little bit, because I am The Frugal Guy and paying to park my car breaks one of my most basic personal rules.
In short, Beach House At Hermosa Beach was clean, comfortable and the staff was highly competent. If it's in your price range. Do it.

Room Tip: If you are not facing the Ocean, your experience may vary.

We at the Beach House are so appreciative of your review and accolades. We strive to make your experience enjoyable and are very happy to hear you had a wonderful, much needed, vacation. Nothing can beat the view and sound of the ocean when you are trying to relax and unwind. We are glad you enjoyed the entire suite and new High Definition Televisions. We will review your suggestion on the Continental breakfast and see what we can do to accommodate this issue. On parking, we do have a $24/night fee and there is no in/out of the lot, unless you are staying at the hotel. Parking throughout Hermosa Beach is always at a premium and all 2 to 3 hour meters and very few lots. It has always been a City regulated fee which we do our best to accommodate guests with helpful and attentive attendants and service, and unfortunately, there just is no space for free parking in Hermosa Beach. Please don't hesitate to contact me when you are returning to Hermosa Beach and we will try to make it even better on your next visit. Thank you to you and your wife for staying with us. Safe travels, Kevin McCarthy, General Manager

Unfortunately we only spent one night as this very charming hotel! I had just finished the bar exam and was looking for a place to relax not to far from the airport as we were heading to Mexico the next day. Beach House at Hermosa Beach was truly a gem of a find. The location is absolutely perfect, right on the beach and walking distance to numerous places to eat. We asked at check-in for a recommendation for dinner, and the front desk staff were happy to provide us with a couple of suggestions. In fact we went to a new place they recommended, and had a very enjoyable dinner. I loved waking up and being able to see the beach. I am not an early riser, but I was excited to wake-up and take a stroll on the beach and out on the pier before our morning flight. The room itself exeeded my expectations. I loved how the room was separted in way such that there was a bedroom area and a living space and yet the room remained roomy and open. The bathroom was also surprisingly large. Everything was very clean, and although we were not told of the continental breakfast, we figured it out in the morning and found that to be a nice touch. I look forward to returning and spending more time at this lovely place. Definitely a great place to relax and unwind and think it would serve as an excellent place for a romantic getaway as well!

Stayed here 4-5 times a year the past 7 years. Have seen the maintenance of the rooms deteriorate over the past 2 years. Painting, upkeep, etc. the biggest issue tho is the "fitness" room. It has almost nothing, no free weights, just a very broken down and dangerous "weight" machine. Have mentioned this to management ever time we've stayed there. For an expensive, luxury property, higher standards apply.

Thank you very much for your review and recent return visit to the Beach House Hotel. We appreciate you coming back, and wanted to inform you on our weight room and general updates. This past year we did all new flooring, painting and other amenities in the Fitness Center other than our weight machine which is scheduled for a future date. We work on maintenance and upgrades to the hotel at all times, with upgraded carpets, new lamps and other soft goods, as well as just completing new cable services for the new High Definition Televisions in all the guest rooms. We are continuously updating the hotel throughout the year. We’re sorry if you found it to not meet expectations, but please know, we are working on having a new weight machine as we see the need as well. Thanks again for your comments and we look forward to your return visit to sunny southern California. Best Regards, Kevin McCarthy, General Manager

WOW! We must return and spend more time at this pristine and perfectly placed hotel on the Strand at Hermosa Beach. We were literally ON THE STRAND but in this beautifully appointed efficiency with awesome king bed (and queen pullout couch) and so peaceful, quiet and charming! The plantation shutters and quiet spa-like chic decor made this hotel a real gem. Front desk staff cordial but not too helpful, so come prepared with your own dining ideas, and don't forget - they include a continental breakfast (which we were never told about and missed!)

Dear Friends from Wellesley, Mass: Thanks for your review and for your recent stay at the Beach House Hermosa Beach. We too think we have a "little slice of Heaven" right here on The Strand and Hermosa Beach is still a quaint and fun little beach town -- and still close to LAX and metro LA. I am sorry if you were not informed on the daily complimentary Continental Breakfast, and for that we apologize. We have lots of great dining tips and hope you will come back and let us share them with you. We urge all out guests to explore our great neighborhood and apologize if our staff did not meet your need on your visit. Let me know when you will be back, and we will make sure to give you all the information you need. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Beach House Hotel Hermosa Beach -- our slice of heaven.

i did book us a sea view suite, fantastic view (room 313) and very beautiful room. Have as well booked he romanic package and everything worked perfectly.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location on the beach. We did rent bikes on the 2nd day (you get 20% reduction if you rent your bike just around the corner from the hotel) and biked 13 miles up to Venice Beach.
We can`t wait to get back.

Room Tip: book the sea view rooms. it is really such a big difference. if you go there, dont save on the room...

Perfect location right on the beach in walking distance to lots of restaurants! Loved the partial ocean view room. Hotel staff was very helpful and daily breakfast on the patio was great. Will visit again.

We stayed at the Beach House for President's weekend - and it was the perfect getaway. We had an oceanfront room on the ground floor with an excellent view of the strand and the volleyball courts on the beach. We were happy watching the people stroll by, bicyclists, skateboarders and skaters. If you want more privacy - ask for a room on one of the higher floors. The hotel doesn't have an in-house restaurant, but you can order anything on the breakfast or lunch menu from Good Stuff next door (by dialing through your hotel phone) - and they will walk it over on a tray with all the condiments and fixings. You can also charge those meals to your room. All in all it was a wonderful relaxing weekend, great service (including the valet staff), and incredible views. We will be back.

Room Tip: For more privacy from ground floor beach foot traffic - ask for rooms above the ground floor.

Thanks so much for your nice review and your stay with us at the Beach House in Hermosa Beach! We too enjoyed President's Weekend in Hermosa Beach and we had a great group of guests that weekend. It is true, some of the first floor rooms are a little noisier with the dog walkers, joggers, and others on The Strand, but many guests like to be right at the Beach so some prefer first floor. Just let us know next time you visit and we will do our best to accommodate your room request. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Hermosa Beach. We will pass the compliments on to Good Stuff too -- as they do a great job for the room service needs.
Warm regards,
Kevin McCarthy, General Manager
