Very Nice Place to stayfrom dmlee90
The staff is very pleasant, especially the dining room supervisor. This hotel provides a daily hot breakfast, which is very good. Also, Mon-Thurs, the hotel provides an early lite dinner, which includes wine. This is not a gourmet meal, but very nice to have after a long day of sight-seeing and just wanting to sit by the pool with a quick bite to eat.
The pool is small and only a max of 5ft deep at one end, but very enjoyable for children.
The only problem we had, was when the housekeeper did not replenish a couple of things that we were running low of or had run out of, i.e. shampoo and tissue. But all we had to do was ask the front desk, and they were able to provide us with what we needed. But overall, every thing was very good. We would definitely stay here again.

Getting old, even with a renovationfrom Snappyinchi
Mattresses are also in need of upgrading--bedspread is not heavy enough to guarantee a sound sleep (assuming you like heavy bedspreads/comforters). Units are also severely lacking in soundproofing--you can hear traffic noise in parking lot. TIP: If you are not in a second level unit you will be sorry!
Free internet access is painfully slow.
Breakfast service is nice. However, dining area could be kept cleaner. Silverware at the buffet is not replaced promptly--sometimes leaving one without a fork.

five star price/quality ratiofrom kencopen
This place is really great, it's a fairly large property that has clusters of townhouse-like structures. We actually checked out two different rooms in different buildings here and both of them were renovated and immaculate. They had pretty much the exact same layout, basically a fairly large room with a little living room area that had a couch and a chair with an ottoman and a fireplace. On the other end is a queen bed. There is a TV situated between the living room and bed with all kinds of services like tons of On-Demand movies. That was cool. A nice sized bathroom with a seperate sink and dressing area. It also has a nice full-sized kitchen with full fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster. There is a desk area right by the kitchen with a free high-speed internet connection. They provide the cables you need to hookup your laptop. Basically the room had everything I like even in the highest end of places.
The location is very convenient, it's on Sepulveda, which is a busy, and very uncharming street, but the access is easy to everyplace. Everything you need is nearby, supermarkets, Target, tons of places to get a quick bite to eat, a zillion coffee shops and of course only minutes to Manhattan, Redondo, and Hermosa beaches. Residence Inn is also dog-friendly, which is one of the reasons we stay here as we travel almost everywhere with our dog.
The staff was pretty friendly. This is a chain, and anyone who expects A-level service from any chain in America is living in a serious fantasy. It always makes me laugh when I read these reviews and people get all offended when they stay at a Motel 6 and get outraged when they weren't treated like Lords and Millionaires. Expect reasonablly friendly service and understand that fairly underpaid workers at these chains are going to have some bad days. The housekeepers did a good job, cleaned up, got us clean towels and the front desk gave us extra pillows when we requested them. I was happy.
My wife and I travel frequently, mainly for pleasure and we always do extensive research before we stay somewhere. When we are just visiting friends we generally like to stay at places in the $100 range, for a romantic weekend we'll go to $250-$300, so we're not hardcore budget travellers. We actually almost let some of the negative reviews on this property disuade us from staying here. Either those people are used to staying at $700 a night rooms or it was before they renovated this property. Thankfully we decided to stay here, and will probably stay here whenever we are just dropping in the LA area.
Great stay, friendly stafffrom kmbmea
We spent one night here in March. The greeting from the front desk staff (I wish I got his name!) was the friendliest I've received at a hotel, period. Big thumbs up. We requested a unit that was as quiet as possible, and we received a top floor unit as far from the street as they could put us. Perfect. The apartment was clean, spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable. If there is room for improvement, it would be the bathroom, which was not as renovated as the rest of the unit, it seems.
There is a Ralph's supermarket just a few blocks north, so making a home-cooked meal is easy. (We had been on the road for several weeks, so it was nice to be able to make our own comfort food.)
The free breakfast buffet the next morning was excellent. Hot breakfast options (eggs, pancakes, etc.) as well as a make-your-own waffle bar. They could perhaps add a second waffle iron, as there was a line, but that's really getting picky.
Free internet access in the room. WebTV access if you don't bring your computer, for a fee.
Big thumbs up. Would happily stay here again.

The Kettle - a real jem Make sure you eat at the kettle whilst in Manhattan Beach - low cost, great atmosphere and excellent food!
Ebizo's Skewers Try Ebizo's Skewers, inside for shabu-shabu or outside for everything else on the menu. Very good California/Japanese.
Yummy Italian Mama D's in Manhattan Beach is great! Small family owned restaurant tends to be full at all times.
