Best motel — Sea Sprite
An affordable mainstay in rapidly changing Hermosa Beach, the Sea Sprite has an unbeatable location, sitting steps from the sand and the attractions on Pier Plaza. “Clean, comfortable and family-friendly,” is how employee Kristen Greenwald describes the Sea Sprite. There’s a variety of rooms to meet travellers’ needs, from economy units to the motel’s two-bedroom cottage.
