Manhattan Beach, California
Reviewed 11 December 2016

Lower your expectations and you will not be disappointed. The check in girl is positively delightful and the location is great. The room is a CA1960's apartment minus the green shag rug that had been replaced with indoor/outdoor carpeting. The breakfast pastries are very good and the rooms are spacious.

Truly the check-in, check-out and breakfast interactions with the owners here were beyond welcoming. We had one of the rooms with a gas fireplace, and it was very cozy and much appreciated in late November. Breakfast has quite a large variety of foods - boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal and milk, pastries, bagels, etc. A block from the beach, and a...

The hotel was very nice, clean the bed was nice and towels and sheets white. The breakfast was good, you sit outside to eat so if busy you could wait for a table, but worth the wait. Not many places to get something to eat unless you got into the car.
