Our Hotel Reviews

Leisure Traveler - Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.

“The location is good, a few blocks off Hermosa Beach and close to the Redondo Beach Pier. Service was very friendly.” (December 2010) [source]

Family with Teenagers - Newton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

“It is a very nice hotel for the price in a great location. It's a fairly easy and pleasant walk down to Redondo Beach and the many restaurants and activities along the ocean. The nearly complete renovations are quite well done. I've seen many older hotels that have had poor renovations (like plastic/fiberglass bathtub and shower inserts) but not here. Parking was great. No complaints about the breakfast either, there was something for everyone's tastes. My only complaint is that the pool is described as "indoor" and it is only partially indoor. One entire side wall of the pool area is made of open screen cement block (like they used to have all over the front of Caesar's Palace) . The problem was that chilly ocean wind was whipping into the room when we visited making it quite cold and unpleasant there even though the pool temperature was itself fairly warm. Basically, when that wind is blowing, you freeze when you get out. Inasmuch as the indoor pool was my primary criterion for selecting this hotel, I felt a bit deceived when I arrived, but since everything else about the hotel and its location was so much better than expected, it did not bother me too much and I did not register any complaints. I just wished I had known beforehand, as I would have reserved elsewhere. But if the indoor pool is not an important issue for you, you can't go wrong staying here. It's a great value. As a side note, having a CVS on the next block was really convenient and dinner at the nearby and very popular Cheesecake Factory down by the beach was surprisingly very enjoyable.” (September 2010) [source]

“Great Choice!” Leisure Traveler With Friends - Texas, U.S.A.

“This hotel was a great choice for us. It is good value, clean and new looking and in a good location. The staff were very polite and helpful, the rooms are spacious with micro and fridge and parking is free (unlike some places round here that I've seen reviewed). They also provide a free, hot buffet breakfast.

It is only about 7 miles from LAX (about $30 by taxi). Hermosa Beach is gorgeous and you can walk to it in about 10 mins but it's all uphill coming back which may be a problem for some. Car hire is pretty reasonable though and well worth it to see more of the area. 

I can't say anything bad about this hotel and I'd be happy to stay there again.

“HIX HB is a gem!” Leisure Traveler, Friends Getaway- Northern California, U.S.A.

“We have stayed at the HIX HB before, and it never disappoints. The hotel is undergoing some renovation, but we barely noticed the construction. The new breakfast area is roomy and comfortable with a huge TV. The HIX breakfast is hearty, and the area is kept clean and neat. Rooms are large, clean, and nicely decorated. We have always stayed on the wing that is not right next to the PCH, overlooking either the parking lot or the Redondo Beach sign. These rooms are quiet and peaceful. It's about a 10-minute walk downhill to the beach through a pleasant, safe neighborhood. Many great restaurants are within walking distance. Hotel staff is courteous and competent. We really enjoy staying at the HIX HB.” (August 2010) [source]

“Just what we needed, just what we expected.” Leisure Couple - Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A.

“Holiday Inn is usually pretty consistent in their hotels, and this one is no exception. The hotel is currently being remodeled, but we didn't notice any noise. The rooms are fine, clean with just the usual wear in spots. Breakfast was convenient and it was easy to jump onto the Pacific Coast Highway and head to wherever we wanted to spend that day. Parking was free and there is a CVS right next door just in case you, ehem, forgot to bring beach towels. The management was friendly and let us stay a little longer in the pool area after hours.

They are technically within walking distance of the beach, but it's mostly the harbor. You'll have to go a bit north to get to the point where you'd want to swim, but you can walk around the pier area (we had great churros at this tiny stand at the Redondo Beach pier).”

“Nice place to stay.”

“Convenient location, fun pool and jacuzzi, clean rooms, comfortable bed with great pillows and comforter. I would stay here again. Pros: very clean and the bedding was really comfy. pool, jacuzzi, and showers in same area. Cons: no view 1/2 mile from ocean” (January 2008) [source]

Business Traveler - Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.

“I've been coming here for two years now and it's become my go to place when in LA. The location is fantastic being close to LAX for work and the beach for play. The rooms have recently been upgraded which gives the place a more luxury feel. The breakfast bar is nothing special but it's free which keeps the CFO happy. Finally try and get a top floor room with the balcony. You can just see the sea which makes it feel more like a vacation than yet another work stay.” (March 2010) [source]

Comment: “We would like to thank the young man who helped us when we arrived. He was very nice, helpful and friendly. We really appreciate this since my husband is in a wheel chair and he was very accommodating. Thank you. He deserves a commendation. Hotel: Good job! Thank you for taking such good care of your guests. Please forward the positive comment to your staff. No need for a response. Case Closed.” (May 2010)

Leisure Couple - Streamwood, Illinois, U.S.A.

I had never been to Southern California before last summer. My wife and I didn't know where to stay, what areas were good, etc. One of our co workers recommended Redondo/Hermosa.  So I called hotels in the area and came across the Holiday Inn Express. The guy on the phone, RIcardo, was very helpful and basically sold the place to me, we wound up booking after I got off the phone. 

It's a short drive from the airport, right down the PCH. We got off the plane, headed to the In N Out Burger on Inglewood Ave, then checked in to the hotel. It's a nice hotel, they have an exercise room, a business center and an indoor pool. Parking is free, which is hard to find in the LAX area and it's in a nice neighborhood, about a mile walk to the beach.  The HOT breakfast buffet was very good and the staff was friendly and accommodating, especially Ricardo. 

The room was nice, comfortable beds, clean and quiet which is all I ask for in a hotel stay. We didn't really have much of a view, but whatever..it's still a nice hotel to go to if you're in the LAX area.”
