They have free bike rentals which made my stay so much better

Amenities were great........ towels, chairs, umbrellas and bikes !! Fantastic!

The property was clean and large enough for our family. We had the 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment and the rooms were a good size. The view of the water was pretty but not as close as I thought it would be. The location was just a walk down a steep hill to the beach. Staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. The only bad thing I can say is the WiFi is extremely slow and sometimes not working at all so be prepared for that. They have a pool but we didn’t use it since we were by the beach. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Convenient, very good location, close to restaurants , clean

Service was excellent, we were able to check in early. Free bikes were OK. They are cruisers w/o gears so hills were tough. Room was very nice, we were at the end of our trip so didn't go down to the beach, but it was visible, about 2 blocks away. We did go for drinks and dinner within a few blocks. It's about 2 miles from the pier and "downtown" area with tons of shops and bar/restaurants.

Awesome Hotel! Clean rooms, close to everything, amazing staff. Oscar was great and super helpful! We checked two bicycles and rode them down the beach, free towels, boogie board rentals, chairs and umbrellas. We will definitely come back, 5 stars all around, thank you!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice quiet room. Will stay again.

Loved the Sea View! Complimentary bikes, free parking, walks to local restaurants, shops and the strand. Staff is professional and friendly, very clean. Thank you!

Our room at the top floor of the northwest unit had a sea view, although not a beach view, so you saw the ocean but not the waves. The two queen beds were very comfortable, the linens and towels were high quality. The room was a good size. The check-in and check-out were easy and the hotel offers free use of bikes and beach equipment (we didn't use those). It was great to have a coffeemaker provided with real coffee rather than the packaged pods. Nice refrigerator and microwave. The location is great for access to local restaurants within 1 to 4 blocks. You could choose from four breakfast spots, pizza, sandwiches, Mexican, beach cuisine, and sports bars, all local rather than chain restaurants. The beach is down a significant hill, but once you take the hike you can enjoy walking or biking on the Strand for miles, wading, surfing, etc. Biggest drawback: The shower has no soap dish at all. You have to put your soap, shower gel, shampoo, etc. on the floor of the shower. That's a slipping hazard as well as inconvenient. The bathroom itself was quite small without much space to lay out your grooming articles. The shower enclosure goes to the ceiling, I believe, so you can't even bring your own hanging shower trolley to use. This is why I gave room comfort a 3 score. That said, I would likely choose this hotel again as I loved the rest of the features and the location.

This was a business/pleasure trip. Very enjoyable.

This is a small cluster of older buildings and is a short walk to a quiet beach. We stayed in the "beach house" which is a 1 BR apartment. It is nestled between buildings with no view. Very clean and quaint. Good eats nearby (breakfast at the Local Yolk is wonderful). Adequate free parking, it is nice that you can get free beach towels/ chairs/ umbrellas/volleyball/ from the desk for the day. Beware that the office is closed at night so you have to check in before they close. We were here in October and it was quiet, beach was not at all crowded. Lovely time. We were here for our college daughter's Parents Weekend at USC. Decided to stay well away from campus and downtown LA. Easy to get to. Will come again.

Noisy, tv not working, small room, not a sigle place to hang a towel etc

It was exactly what it was billed to be. It's a beach hotel clean and close to everything you need in Manhattan Beach. Hotel staff was great.
