Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Manhattan Beach - Hawthorne
Good value for price, but very small room
I read the reviews on this hotel and thought it was worth a try for a recent two night stay. As previously mentioned, this hotel is not in Manhattan Beach (but a very short drive), has a good free breakfast and is not walking distance to anything except a few corporate buildings. This is basically a good hotel for a single business traveler or for a very small family. I stayed here with my husband and two children (8 & 11) and felt the room was very small. Althougth it is considered a "suite", it is a very small studio that becomes impossible to walk around in once the pull out couch becomes a bed. This small studio setup appears to be the only type of room in this hotel (I asked) and the front desk was not willing to offer any type of discount when I asked if we could get a connecting suite. This room was just too tight for us. I don't think I would stay here again.
Very Accommodating....Great location for LAX
Just got back from a 10 day trip to LA / San Diego and stayed at 3 different hotels and a timeshare. This hotel had the nicest staff. We were traveling with two teenagers and my mom. I must say that the two Springhill Suites we stayed in were both a great for the money we paid. This one was $142 per night and with breakfast for all five of us we felt we really got a deal. The staff was friendly. I ask if there was a washer and dry in the hotel and she put us on the same floor so it would be more convenient for us. They even gave us cookie when we check in to. Ask for extra towel and they brought them right up. Room was clean and roomy. We went to get dinner then came back to use the washer they even gave us the laundry detergent and dryer sheets. Breakfast was great. They call it a continental breakfast but there were eggs, sausage, waffles, French toast, bagel, muffins, etc. I definitely did not expect that. We only stayed on night before leaving for home. This is about 10 minutes from LAX. We would definitely stay their again.
Best bet, great place to stay!
Very happy that we stayed here. Free high speed internet, heated pool, spa, excellent breakfast. The breakfast was way beyond the typical offerings... bagels, english muffins, belgian waffles, yogurt, build your own egg/sausage muffin, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, danish... the list goes on. The rooms were clean and quiet. Staff gave us fresh chocolate chip cookies upon check in. The area is great, minutes from the beach, just off the freeway-but in a nice area. Shopping and dining all around the area. We stayed for four days with our best friends, then my in laws stayed there the following weekend, and invited us back again. Both weekends we found the Springhill Suites to be a wonderful place to stay. When I forgot an item, they shipped it back, free! I would highly reccomend the Springhill Suites, and plan to stay there again next summer.
Nice clean hotel...that's it!
I stayed here one night. On this two week trip, I stayed at the Millenium Biltmore (downtown), Sea View Inn (Manhattan Beach), Miramar Fairmont (Santa Monica), and the Magic Castle (Hollywood)...ok it was quite a mixture...am going to write reviews on each of these also.
Of all the places I have stayed in LA, this was the most vanilla flavored. It is your basic "Holiday Inn/Howard Johnson" hotel...albeit a bit roomier and with better service. Clean, roomy, free internet, breakfast, near the airport, etc...
If you are looking for a nice place to sleep, this is it.
If you are looking for something with a bit of charm, this is not it.
Enjoyed my stay
I was a guest at this hotel for a week in March 2005. The foregoing comments are pretty much spot on. It's a hefty walk to the nearest restaurant, but an easy drive. I had a car and was glad that there is a traffic signal at the cross street leading in to the hotel, or else I would have never been able to get out onto Aviation Boulevard. My work brought me down here and I thought the hotel location was great, as the office is the next building down the street. Did not like the mattress in my room - felt well used but on the other hand, my back never bothered me and I slept well here. I like it cool at night for sleeping and the A/C unit blows right over you in the bed. I learned to live with it. Breakfast buffet was ample. There is free high-speed wired internet in the room. If you need an ethernet cable, it is hanging in a small plastic bag in your closet. The service worked well. Self-service laundry is on the second floor, $1.50 to wash and $1 to dry. I used to like to stay at the Embassy Suites LAX South but this is the place I will stay at next time I am here. I enjoyed my stay.
Nice hotel, bedding needs upgrading
NIce clean hotel, convienent to LAX w/FREE parking! Area is marginal, but who walks in LA anyway? Sheets and blanket are on the thin, rough side and need upgrading. Microwave and frig in room helps w/doggie bags. Would stay again, esp for Marriott points.
Hotel nicer than its location
while the hotel is fine and the rooms what you would expect from a suite hotel, the surrounding area is not great. also, this hotel is in hawthorne and definitely not in manhattan beach. pool is small for a place this size. breakfast bar is well stuffed.
you may consider paying more and stay in the manhattan beach marriott, which has nicer surroundings.
The SpringHill Suites is just a few minute drive from either LAX or Manhattan Beach. There are also several great restaurants that are a little less than a mile away. The hotel staff was so friendly, including housekeeping and maintenance, that I began to wonder if the employees were terminated on the spot if they failed to say hello to a guest. The continental breakfast was the best I have seen, which included making your own waffles, and egg & cheese "McMuffins." Only minor drawbacks: nothing within a 5 minute walk, small pool, average matress. I would definately stay there again.
A very cozy hotel this gem was great to stay at. We had a reservation at another hotel which they had old rooms and we drove by the Marriott Spring Hill Suites Manhattan Beach and decided to take a look. Its a new hotel right in the heart of Manhattan Beach where its so close to great shopping and restaurants. The guest rooms are spectacular and spacious with great pillows and mattresses.
We wanted a good basic place to stay near the Home Depot Center for the World Cup. The place was clean, attractive, and overall good experience. Pluses were the large rooms, internet connection in the room, and the location. Pretty basic were the pool and the workout room.
We didnt try breakfast but lots people were eating there.

Like a dummy I headed into the mountains, believing what a ranger had told me on the phone "Come early, the weekend after the 4th is not too tough to score a campground". Well, I guess I missed the come early part and go there about 1 pm. There was only two spots empty and they were reserved. I decided to take a nice hike with Bard ...

... back up the escalators into the main part of the theme park, and i was determined to go and visit Krustyland which is the whole Simpsons village. You can actually eat in the places that have featured in all the episodes, like Moe;s tavern and visit the Quick E Mart. Next we went to the Shrek 4D cinema which showed a short Shrek movie in 4D where you get water squirted at you, the seat moves, wind blows and lights flash.

... As an afterward to this post, my apologies to those who were impacted by the change in my Travel Blog. It turns out that MapQuest (which I'll now be referring to as "That PoS") decided my first entry for today - about 3,000-odd words - was clearly not good enough to be published under my name, and "lost it" during the sync. Well - more accurately - the sync back to the MapQuest Servers decided that the thing I had created offline was clearly not fit to ...
So finally we arrived in Los angles this morning at 930am. Getting here was a shambles out of our control, to some extent We started our adventure in Brisbane where we were told we could not board our plane to LAX because the Qantas check in lady believed it was her job to deny us boarding the LaX as we could not show proof of exit out of Mexico. We frantically ran around BNE airport to find internet computers to find how to book online our bus from Playa del Carmen to Belize. No such ...
