    Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Los Angeles LAX/Manhattan Beach

    Great Hotel


    Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Got this place through Priceline ($40, 2 and a half stars). Everything you would expect from a Marriott run property. The staff at the front desk were professional, courteous and efficient. Rooms are typical Residence Inn rooms equiped with a full kitchen and a living room. Complimentary breakfast was a nice touch and location was excellent. As they say in E-bay, AAA+++ ....

    Great Hotel


    We stayed at this hotel in 12/04 for 2 nights as a result of a priceline bid. We had a great room which included a full kitchen, fireplace, and a large bathroom. Free continental breakfast was very good & had a lot of good choices and variety. I had heard that there were some problems previously with people renting the rooms for parties. We did have to sign a noise agreement (no noise after a certain hour), which was fine with us. We never heard any noise while staying there. Would definitely stay here again.

    Great location and recently renovated.


    I loved the location of this hotel. Very close to the beach and shops. I stayed for an entire week, while on business and was happy to get a renovated room. After registering, I was put in a room sandwiched between several partygoers with hip-hop blasting and all the doors opened. I couldn't believe this would be the first choice of the front desk, so I complained and got a room in the "quiet" section, located at the south end of the property. This made a big difference and I enjoyed the rest of my stay. The staff was a bit young and seemed frazzled at times.

    Wonderful home away from home!


    I LOVE this place! Just fab - free parking, the rooms are great, full kitchen, park close to your room and just walk in. The staff is great also, and the grounds lovely. Close to absolutely everythng about 1 mi to the beach. Target is down the street, shopping nearby and Ralph's grocery store is down the street and openh 24 hrs. Just love this property and you can get it on priceline...

    Needs a lot of help!


    We always stay at Marriott hotels and had planned to stay at the Residence Inn for a week while my husband attended a local conference. While the rooms are large and nicely decorated, the one we got was filthy - popcorn and trash under the sofabed, a hole in the bed sheet, packing address labels and duct tape used to fix something on the ceiling, broken closet rod - I could go on. The layout of the doorway was around the back of the buildling and felt a little unsafe. The door and all windows faced a hand car wash where loud heavy metal rock music played by the workers. We found another hotel in the area and checked out after 2 hours.

    Very nice hotel! Good value and rooms are all renovated!


    We stayed at the Residence Inn and had a very good time. All the rooms have been renovated and it is more like a cluster of townhouses than a hotel. Very like it very much. They only provide one free Duraflame log, but you can purchase more at the desk. They do provide free internet access and a good kitchen (though no nonstick pans, so pickup some PAM when grocery shopping!) We really enjoyed it there!

    Great deal for the $$$$$$$$


    We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise at the Residence Inn Manhattan Beach. Got the hotel on priceline 2 1/2 star for Manhattan beach for less than $50 per night. Great hotel. Clean, comfortable and very nice staff at the front desk. Pool and hot tub, basketball court as well as a tennis court are available. The morning breakfast is decent with eggs, sausage and make your own waffles available as well as the usual continental breakfast fare. They have a full kitchen in the suite with all necessary dishware. Coffee maker with supplies and popcorn for the microwave are in each unit. We liked the location next to a target store and only a few miles from the nice Manhattan beach pier. On weekdays they have cocktails in afternoon and some light dinner fare.

    This was our first experience with Residence Inn and we were impressed.

    Completely renovated suites


    We are proud to say that every suite has been completely renovated. The Residence Inn has been beautifully redecorated and upgraded. Included is free high speed internet access and of course the free hot/cold breakfast buffet. Serivce is impeccable, too. Don't stay anywhere else! Close to beaches and close enough to LAX to meet your plane without having to stay next to the airport.

    A big disappointment


    I had a big disappointment when I decided to stay at the Residence Inn at Manhattan Beach. I am a loyal supporter of Residence Inn properties and really love to stay there. Having arrived along with my family from an ultra long haul flight to LAX , I was looking forward to relax at this property thinking it would be the usual Residence Inn quality. The check in staff was very nice but she failed to give me one of the renovated penthouses , in spite of the fact that I am a Gold Elite Marriott Rewards Member. It could be that it might not have been available at that time. Anyway , on entering I got a real shock. It was a penthouse that had seen much better times. The carpet was smelly , dirty and damp. The bed mattresses were totally worn out and sank in the center , and the bed sheets were torn and tattered. Room lighting was depressingly dark and every where I turned I got to see something or the other which further depressed me. In spite of the fact that we were completely exhausted and worn out, I just could not stay another moment there. I requested the front desk staff to check me out and she very kindly did so without charging me anything , something really very nice of her. I cannot recommend anyone to stay there unless they can guarantee one of the newly renovated rooms.

    Home Away From Home


    This property is is a great location, about a five minutes drive south of LAX on busy Sepulveda Blvd. Many restaurants and shops are in the immediate area and the beach is about a mile away.

    This is really a complex of townhomes, clustered in small, individual complexes, sharing a small common area. We enjoyed our penthouse, which consisted of a full kitchen, living room with twin sofa bed, downstairs bedrooom (full) and upsairs loft (queen). Each room had a TV. There were two bathrooms, one upstairs in the loft. Our unit also had a fireplace.

    Our unit had recently been upgraded to the new Residence Inn/Courtyard standard for furnishings and bedding. The carpet had been replaced and all of the furniture was new. The beds now all have real mattresses (as opposed to the 4" foam pads that were used in the past). Even the sofa bed has a mattress with coils in it.

    The kitchen has a microwave, full-sized fridge with ice maker, dishwasher, toaster, 12 cup coffee maker, and electric stove and oven.

    There are a limited amout of cooking and serving pots/pans/utensils and placesettings for four.

    Our unit was located in the rear of the property, which ensured minimal road and traffic noise. Also, the (free) parking seemed to be better in the back, although the spaces are somewhat narrow.

    Breakfast consists of scrambled eggs, waffles, pancakes, fruits and juices, and toast.

    We enjoyed out stay here and would come back again. We liked cooking our own meals and being able to invite friends over to share them with.

    One minor annoyance is that the ammenities such as dishwasher soap and fireplace log are free the first night, but must be purchased otherwise.

Rather than liquid carpet shampoos, go for dry carpet cleansers and try to choose mild cleaning items to evade color loss. In some instances, many people use jack knife to scrape instead of shaver.
