After 5 straight years of staying at the Sea Sprite, only to find absolutely NO upgrades have been made in an already very run down hotel, the customer service we experienced was outrageous. We had about 4 rooms this time and on a Saturday night at 8:30 were yelled at by the Manager (not asked politely but treated like bad...

I was hoping that the condition of this place would have improved since my last stay but it was not to be. We were given a small room that appeared to be a previous garage or storage shed. It was very hot and did not have a table, chair or fan. When we asked for a fan at the front...

We were so happy with our 3 night stay here! Several years ago, we tried to stay here, and the crowds were not family friendly, and we ended up leaving. This time, it was very quiet. We had 5 in our party, so the 2 queen beds and 2 trundles made all the difference for a good nights sleep! The...

The Sea Sprite is located within walking distance of anything that you want to do in Hermosa Beach. It isn't beautiful, but if you are looking for a party weekend, this is the place. It is right on the beach and it walking distance from The Comedy and Magic Club, the Strand, restaurants, bars and shopping. We show up on...

If you're looking for luxury this is not your place but the location is absolutely the best. It is clean, and comfortable and right on the beach. I was a little surprised how run down the place looked when I got there, but it came highly recommended so I gave it a chance. I was not disappointed. You stay here...

This is an Old School on the beach hotel. Full kitchens available but No pots pans glasses utensils dishes etc. Very old and in need of refurbishment. Stairs to 2nd floor pretty steep. We ha room 28 on the 2nd floor and it had a great view of the beach and ocean. With all the negatives, the location is fabulous...

Stayed 3 nights in room 28 upstairs in north motel building. Good things: on the strand, our room faced the ocean with slider doors in both living and bedroom with a balcony with chairs, roomy, clean, lots of towels, hot water in shower but tiny and floor slippery, full sized fridge, stove and kitchen sink, small microwave and coffee maker,...

Great view onto the beach! Close to restaurants and shops. Also close to the airport if you're looking for somewhere nice to stay that's an easy commute. Reasonably priced and free wifi that actually works. Rent bikes from the surf shop around the corner and cruise up/down to Santa Monica, Venice Beach or Redondo Beach.

Not a fancy place but clean and quiet and best of all right on the beach just a short walk from the Hermosa Beach pier. This is a real special place because of the location. I loved our top floor unit with a killer sunset view.
