A Nice Place to Visit
We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and were very pleased with the facility. The rooms were a good size, cleaned well, and the dressing area was large. Staff were helpful with directions and any other requests. The small breakfast restaurant was convenient, reasonably priced, and had good service. It is close to the beach and in a nice area, no fears of going for walks in the evenings. It was a long hike to the L.A. area attractions, but after seeing the congested areas further north, I was glad we stayed in Redondo Beach. The only complaints that I have are that the hotel does not have a guest laundry as stated on the Best Western web site, and if you get back late in the evening, you have to park in a creepy underground garage. The garage entry isn't visible from the front, and they don't mention anything about the garage parking unless you ask specifically, so after driving around the lot and not finding a space, you have to go to the lobby and say, " Hey, there's no parking. Where am I supposed to park?", and you will be directed to the garage entrance around the back of the building. Overall, I was pleased with this hotel, and felt that it was a good value. I would stay there again if I visit the Los Angeles area.
Nicest motel in the area
We live nearby, and when relatives visit, or when we need to leave the house during construction work, this is the place to stay. Much better than the Palos Verdes Inn in the same block. The Hilton and Marriott in Torrance are better than this place, but are more expensive and farther away.
The Best Western is in the same block as two excellent restaurants, Chez Melange (in the Palos Verdes Inn) and Frascati, and a pancake house. Walk several blocks toward the ocean, and you will find Hollywood Riviera shopping center, with various shops and two more excellent restaurants, Gina Lee's Bistro and Zazoo (check out Zagats for all these restaurants) as well as Hennessey's pub and Redondo Beach Brewing Co.
Airline flight crews stay at this Best Western, which would seem to be a pretty good endorsement.
Pass on this place if you have other options
I stayed at this hotel on 12/25/04-12/28/04 because it is the closest hotel to my parent's house. I was not at this hotel for location or amenities. All that mattered was that the shower, sink, and toliet worked: and they really didn't work. The toliet ran for an hour after you flushed it, and wouldn't flush again until it stopped. Everytime I took a shower the pipes made this aweful loud sound that pipes sometimes do when there is a problem. I couldn't even finish showering because it was so loud. I would also hear other people's pipes when they were trying to shower (so it wasn't just my room). I mean, I could say it was a big room, or that the hotel was quiet, but that doesn't really matter when the toliet and shower don't work. So my advice is if you have any other option, don't stay here unless you need this SPECIFIC location. Although it is inexpensive, its really not worth it.
Stayed in May 2004 - was very pleased, rooms were nice and clean, staff helpful, very good food. It is in a nice location with nice restaurants, shops and beach nearby. Only problem was we noticed they over charged after we got home but they rectified this very quickly. Would stay there again!
Basic but nice
I sure find these reviews helpful and pretty accurate if you discount the extremes. Thanks all who post.
I have stayed at Redondo countless times and just love the atmosphere. Safe, close to the airport and tons to do.
First time I have stayed at this hotel and found it terrific. Usually stay at the BW Sunrise, and this was much cheaper (no free breakfast tho), approx $70 - 80 per nite. The rooms were large and comfortable, included a fridge and large sink/dressing area. As reported earlier, the room cleaning was weak, never cleaned coffee pot out. But, the room was generally cleaned up nicely, the beds comfy and air conditioner worked fine tho a bit noisy. They have a small restaurant for breakfast that serves a decent breakfast for very reasonable, i.e. bacon & eggs $5. They have pretty good bikes that they rent for 3 hours for $1, and $3 per hour after.
There is lots of restaurants within walking distance, ranging from reasonable to expensive. Don't miss hoofing along the strand you can literally walk for miles right beside the ocean. We rode the rentals all the way to Santa Monica, with just a few blocks on a road, the rest was on a bike path. The strand runs for about 18 miles, might even go to Malibu tho I have never gone that far.
Trader Joes market which is 3 blocks away has great wine selctions for cheap and some interesting food choices.
This hotel was disgusting. we arrived late and very tired and did not notice alot of the problems with this room. However that quickly changed upon waking up and trying to take a bath. The bathrooms were completely disgusting and filthy I did not even want to use it. I had to put shower caps on my feet to stand in the tub to shower. I have pictures documenting the gross filth under their tub mats if anyone cares to see them.
Loved the "inn"
Stay here for my work trips. Love the service and rooms. Clean, spacious, and very affordable. Lots of amenities, including a restaurant and bar
Striving to be the best.
Unique layout, close to the beach, and comfortable. Small but functional comforts on premises such as whirlpool, sauna, heated pool, bar/lounge, and gym outfitted with aerobics machines. Lastly, recommend a visit to the cafe.
Nice Hotel, pleasantly surprised.
Hotel rooms were good size plenty of room for 2 double beds, a rollaway, a couple tables, room to walk around. Bathtub drain was slow draining but not totally clogged. TV has cable, room was clean and had an iron and ironing board, coffee maker, and small refrig. Good location only 2 blocks or so from the beach, and the hotel rented out bicycles for only a few dollars. Hotel also had a hot jacuzzi and a pool. I would stay here again.
Nice place to stay
Stayed here June 18th 2003 for a couple of nights and found the place clean and presentable. The pool is a little small but that was about the only complaint. The rooms was clean well presented and serviced daily. On the whole a plesant place.

... Josephina (Pepina) and Rosa. If you read the census carefully, you’ll see that his father, Charlie Sr., if I can call him that, migrated in 1891 and his mother, Mary, actually Maria Grande, migrated in 1896. But it also shows they had been married 10 years, which means they were married in Italy in 1890. The census also reveals that Mary/Maria had three children, only two of which were then living.

... up - matching name, wife's name, and address from the 1915 New York Census. But the draft registration form also had his birth date on it - 20 May 1873. Eureka! That date led to a birth record for a James Harley, born to Mary Ann Fisher and James Harley in Newark, NJ. The right person? I think so, but it is possible there were two James Harleys born on 20 May 1873 in New Jersey. But until some further evidence proves me ...
