Went there on my honeymoon. It was in a good, walking distance from the beach. Not a walk for the faint of heart however. We did need to take a couple of breaks, walking back up the hill from the beach in the heat that we were not used to. The room was quite spacious. Yes, it's an older establishment...

We stayed with our family of 4 for 3 nights in a familyroom. The room was exactly what we needed, very spacious with 2 queensized beds in a separate room adjacent to the masterbedroom, where there was a kingbed. Also 2 separate bathrooms. Plenty of towels which were refreshed every day. It got chilly at night so extra blankets would...

This is not a modern location. If you are picky, this location is not for you. If you need an economical room along Sepulveda for a night and you can overlook some things, go ahead. The pros: price of a room was well under $100, ground level free parking with elevator to the upper floor, continental breakfast, 5 minute drive...

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...

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 Broken, outdated appliances and furnishings.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...

I booked this hotel through Expedia for a stay on 6/25/16. The cost of the hotel was $163.90. I was unable to stay at the hotel and gave the room to my brother-in-law who happened to be in town.
