Hidden entrance brings you to such a nice place. My room was clean,spacious nicely furnished and very comfortable. View was of courtyard which had been set up for an event. I was concerned about noise but had no problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They also have a nice bar/restaurant on the second floor. They serve a great...

A family member's art show drew us to Manhattan Beach which in turn drew us to the Belamar. I have stayed many times in LAX hotels. Nothing bad, just "the usual". The Belamar, just a few miles from LAX, might as well be on another planet. Recently re-done to show off its mid-century modern bones, the hotel and its staff...

This place was really nice and the staff are friendly. Very convenient to the airport and to downtown Manhattan Beach.

Other then that it was...

Stayed here for only a night, but was overall pleased with it. Pretty basic rooms, the bar/restaurant was nice, and its in a residential area. The wi-fi sucked though in my room, I had to sit in the lobby to use the internet. Not really a big deal though. I'd stay there again.

Stayed here on recent business trip due to proximity LAX. Hotel is right on Sepulveda, but still somewhat secluded in a residential area. Within walking distance of several restaurants (Tin Roof Bistro). There is a trail to Manhattan Beach. The hotel has bike rentals. Service was excellent throughout the stay. $10 valet parking.

While working in the Torrance area I needed a place to stay close to my client and not terribly expensive of fancy. An added bonus of the location is a wonderfully soft surface walking/running path from the hotel to Manhattan Beach. This unassuming hotel has wonderful beds, nice rooms, fast wifi and decent in room coffee. I did not eat...

Unique hotel on the border of a residential and commercial area. Valet parking only but $10 so reasonable. About 15 minutes from the airport – but give yourself 30 due to traffic. 5 minute drive to the beach and all the great restaurants and shops on the Strand. Hotel is older but with some nice renovations. Some odd smells though....
