Absolutely forgettable place, where you might land if wanting to be close to LAX. Expenseive for what you get. Poor, unhelpful service, depressing rooms. We had a reservation problem, which they didn't help us solve. We won't go back.

I booked a last minute reservation with the Wave Hotel based on great reviews and of course great last minute rate only to find the agents very unprofessional. I was driving in from Vegas and just calling to let them know that my mother, daughter and I would be in late only to be told "well I'm not sure how... More

This was by far the filthiest hotel I have stayed in, and i have been in quite a few. Mold, mold, mold in the bathroom everywhere. Hair folded in my bath towel most likely from the housekeeper. Broken, outdated appliances and furnishings. The leaking pipes in the underground parking left water stains on my car. Housekeeping didn't show and when... More

Pros - Friendly staff - Comfortable clean bed - Continental breakfast Cons - Dated and broken TV in room - Peeling wallpaper - Bathroom in need of paint/maintenance - Noisy A/C unit Bottom line. Inexpensive place to stay. Not even close to a "nice" place.

Close to the beach without a car then this is not for you. The walk is about 1 1/2 miles to the pier and it's up hill and down dale.. If in a car then you have the worry of the traffic warden who is very active. The hotel is fine. There are many domestic repairs which need attention but... More
