Reviewed yesterday NEW

Worn looking building all areas, needs proper care, paint and maintenance, Disgusting looking pool and empty jacuzzi - take those off the list of amenities since unusable! Noisy refrigerator, desk drawer installed upside down and coffee maker rusty and unassembled! Construction workmanship needs more training as the light switch in the bathroom did not fully cover the wall cut out....

Stayed at The Wave for a couple of nights, arrived early but the staff were happy to check us into our room. Rooms are serviced daily and clean, continental breakfast was included. The hotel is undergoing renovations so the rooms are very spacious and modern. Found the hotel to be only a 15 minute stroll from Manhattan Pier, and close...

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...
