we were there for one night in Jan 2013. We had stayed 3 nights in an Ayres property just before and were surprised at how shabby the Wave was for the same money. The remote didn't work for the ancient TV , there were tiles missing out of the floor in the bathroom. Lighting was poor and my kids didn't...

The hotel's decor is outdated in its look however it is in good condition. Rooms were large, clean. You have a small fridge. Near Target, within walking distance to Manhattan beach and other hot spots. Very easy secure parking on-site. My friend stayed at Shade Hotel and paid $300.00. I paid $80.00. As we travel for business and not for...

English persons walking distance from the beach. Cheap compared to other hotels around but the room was dark and the floor was dirty. Despite this, it was fine for road tripping down the coast and only staying one night.

The rooms were were in (we booked 3) were all quite dark and outdated. We drove to the beach as we weren't there long but it would...

The price was pretty good, and the room was nice. The beds were ok, not super soft, but it was clean and comfortable for the most part. The one thing that annoyed me was the fact that there are no blinds on the windows, and my room was near some stairs. We ended up putting one of my long scarves...

We had first to figure out where it is. you couldnt expect a 5 stars hotel at that price. Lady at the reception look like she had enough of her job! it's a bit noisy and if you can figure out how the darn lights switches are working at the first try, i'll send you 2$ :) Ok to sleep...

Terrible hotel!! Leaking ceilings, damp rooms, mouldy, closed pool and jacuzzi due to government health and safety regulations and dirty rooms! Unsafe to stay at this place due to wet ceilings and chance that the roof will cave in!!

This "Hotel" is not great, it is what it is and if all you are looking for is a Room to sleep the night as you pass through then this place is fine for that. They do stink like smoke, but after a 15 hour flight we did not care, we just wanted to sleep before moving on to the...
