Wave Hotel
Ranked #9 of 9 Hotels in Manhattan Beach
Reviewed 25 January 2016

My husband and I had to go to CA to see a dying uncle, we go to the hotel at about midnight we couldn't watch tv because you had to be a rocket scientist to turn it on. The bathroom was in serious need of repair. There was at least an 1 1/2" space under the outside door. The fan in the bathroom was very loud. The second night we heard a shower running and thought it was a neighbors until we went in the bathroom a few minutes later and the bathroom was soaked, something happened not sure what. The next morning we got up and were unable to use the shower. When we called the front desk they came and couldn't fix it we asked for another room to shower they didn't have anything available. After about 45 minutes they finally gave us another room to shower in because the shower needs replacing. We will never use this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: No refrigerators in the rooms

I enjoyed my stay,because the staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable as well as the hotel is in close proximity to some great entertainment places, shopping centers, restaurants, and the beach.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the rooms by the hot tub..

Run down hotel. I would give 2.5 stars. Convenient for free parking, location, free internet and free breakfast. Bed was really uncomfortable, some lamps we're not working. My room was extremely noisy. Definitively a one night stop. Not terrible but below average.WiFi works but you have to find the right router that works better for your room.

Poor quality rooms, very old and worn out furniture and fixtures. Bathroom tiles are discolored- have stains all over. Bathroom wasn't even clean when we arrived- had to request to change room. TV doesn't work- it's just there for display. free breakfast is okay- usual continental fair.

We stayed at this hotel on a stop over in LA to Australia. We do this trip often however this was the first time at this hotel and we will never stay there again. The hotel is a budget hotel, and in that way it is fine. It has a 24/7 office, clean areas and a very basic room. Wifi works throughout the hotel which is great and the free shuttle worked great. The location is great if you want to stay on a budget in Manhattan beach as it is a 20 minute walk to the beach areas, and to a large shopping mall, as well as close to the airport.

The reason we will never stay again is that on arrival we requested the rate for a half day the following day, as we had a late flight. The receptionist informed us that would not be an issue and we could have until 5 PM for 60 USD. When I went to book this the next day, the new receptionist upped the rate to 70 USD and made the checkout at 4 pm and would not budge on that time. Eventually he agreed to 60 USD, however the 4 PM time stayed. We and our family are now changing hotels for the return trip; if the staff had been reasonable, this would have been a hotel we and our friends use often on transits.
