SpringHill Suites Manhattan Beach - Hawthorne
Travel Blogs from Hawthorne
... stage. I guess that was for Mariachis that play there from time to time. The atmosphere here is very laid back, nothing fancy at all. This is a place that you can come in wearing some shorts, t-shirt and just hangout and watch the games on the TV's. This place is probably best in the morning for breakfast because thats when the Micheladas go best, as a morning drink. Its also a good hangover drink in case any of you are ever ...
... wasn’t too much better than the M&M store in Vegas. The only touristy thing we hadn’t yet done was see the Hollywood sign. Sam had found the best place to view it from was the observatory, so we headed that way. Halfway up the mountain, the traffic was awful and we realized we needed to abort and get out of the congestion. I had been talking to Shawn Lacy, my good friend from college, and she told me that we were minutes away from ...
... modern. Got shuttle to cockatoo comfort inn with massive room, huge bathroom overlooking a very inviting pool. Again lovely and clean. We have made excellent choices yet again. Hot here, with cloudless blue sky. Longest day today, so eat your hearts out!!!!!! Observations in USA: every person has iPhone or galaxy transplanted into their hand and are continually ...
After a four hour delay in Texas we arrived at LA airport and took the most expensive taxi ride ever to our hostel. The hostel was on Hollywood boulavard and was converted from one of those typical hotels you see aspiring actors live in. We were on the walk of fame and only a stroll from the centre of Hollywood. We got ...
... Saffron Rosewater ice cream.
All that, and a drive past some of the famous and infamous LA attractions, from the Whisky a go go to the Viper Room. The tour guide was wonderful and there were only three other people on the tour, all of whom were from Australia. So we had a great time, it was much much more enjoyable than yesterday's tour.
And we (so far) have had a record day in LA - nobody asked us ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Manhattan Beach - Hawthorne
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.
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.
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.
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.
