          I see that many people have complained about air conditioning. This is very important to us. What did the hotel do to address the problem? Is it only a problem in certain areas? Also, someone said something about portable wifi. What are the details on that? Thank you!

          There is a small grocery store in Hermosa Beach and that's an easy walk for most people.
