Wonderful experience! I honestly couldnt believe some of the reviews i read about Seasprite. My husband, myself, and our two little girls stayed for a week. The room was clean, near the pool, and had a gorgeous view of the ocean! The staff working the desk were very polite, one gentleman was particularly helpful and even helped to carry our...

When a cockroach ran across the table, we asked to be moved to another building. Instead, the clerk reached under the counter and gave us a can of Raid.

I’ve been going to the Seasprite for 2 weekends every summer since 1998—24 visits and counting! I live in San Francisco, so this is my warm, sunny beach getaway. The Seasprite is a quaint, old-school, no-frills style motel. What you are paying for is the location and you aren’t paying very much comparatively speaking. You are right on the Strand,...

The motel is what it is..... A cheaper beach front property. The only real complaint I have is the parking. The parking wasn't designed oversize vehicles and arrangements weren't well thought out. It took 15 minutes to get out of our parking space b/c we were blocked in by SUVs. Again this is what it is..... right on the beach...

Too bad. Superb location for a active beachy-boozey long weekend. Hotel has a retro feel, way casual, feels like Jimmy Buffett and his buds would be happy here. Not a luxury property by any means but who cares!? The problem?? The front desk staff doesn't seem to give a rats a**. Brief story: I checked out, leaving behind my toiletry...

The location of this motel can't be beat. The motel has a retro feel to it, but to me I appreciate this. Sure you could stay at a much more modern motel, but the fact that it's not is just the reason that I appreciate this place. The rooms are clean and the furniture is a bit dated, but this...

I let my coworker talk me into staying here for two nights. $135 a night. I shouldn't have. I admit It is in a great location right on the beach and, yes, the local nightlife and food is great. But I felt like I was staying in the hotel from "revenge of the nerds; nerds in paradise". I am laughing...

This was our 2nd stay at the Sea Sprite, and we loved it! We have a 4 & 6 year old. and this hotel is now a place we plan on coming each year. It's not fancy, but it's clean, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is great and you are 7 steps from the beach, literally. Once we parked...

OK...I had a bad experience at the Hampton Inn in Hermosa Beach...management is clueless and wouldn't negotiate $10 off their first asking price rate...I guess they would rather sit on an empty room in this economy. Oh well, I travel there quite a bit and now they're off my list...permanently. I headed to the waterfront and found The Sea Sprite...
