Just off the plane, good first night stay before moving on our travels. Clean, comfortable & spacious room, comfortable beds made for a good nights sleep. We used the hot tub before heading to bed, lovely & hot, the perfect thing before bed - the pool was icy cold. Breakfast was a little odd, you got given a menu &...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 November 2016

We stayed in this hotel for almost a week during our move to LA. This hotel can be easily accessed from freeway and is located in a safe neighborhood with a well-lit parking lot. The rooms are spacious, very clean and at the moment, they're doing some renovations and are replacing the carpets so it will be even better. They...

I don't think I have ever given a hotel poor rating but I felt this one is well deserved. We arrived quite late at night for an early morning flight from LAX. The hotel is not too far from LAX and offers a free hourly shuttle, which is probably the only great feature of this property! The rooms are extremely...

Close to shopping and food within driving distance. Affordable and clean just expect the WOW factor, noticed some clutter do to renovation but not bad, pool decks had numerous bird droppings. The free breakfast was good however you were limited to 4 plate combos, I did read later that you could upgrade for an additional $4.30. Overall it was a...

Best hotel I've stayed at in lax area in this price range. Friendly and helpful staff. I'm happy to be there. Not hoping the night hurries up to be over. I rest well because it is quiet and clean and decor is relaxing and inviting. My new home away from home!

Location was good, 15 minutes from LAX. Very friendly and helpful staff. The on-site restaurant was very good and provides an excellent included breakfast. Facilities are tired and the property could use some investment by the owner. The sink in our room leaked from the u joint and the in room safe had no power. The carpet are long overdue...

I chose this Best Western because I like its location and shuttle service to LAX airport. There's a Jack in the Box, Panda Express, a bakery and supermarket all within walking distance surrounding this hotel. We ate at Panda Express and thought we would reheat the left overs for lunch the next day when we realized there was no microwave!!...

The staff was friendly and helpful. It would have been more comfortable sleeping on a concrete pad, breakfast was less than appetizing (green eggs and ham brought to real life) and the green pool and hot tub ensured we stayed far away from the pool area.

Receptionist, who was on the computer, just ignored us when we approached. When we asked about check-in, he just coldly told us that check-in isn't till 2PM (not looking up from his computer at all) No hi, hello or any eye contact. The shuttle driver kinda looked guilty at the side but didnt say anything either, but I asked him...

Worst best western anywhere - Unpleasant staff, crappy breakfast, poor security - side door open all night, parking full with their vans, noisy. I could go on but be assured I won't be back and I'd recommend no one else go there either. Lots of choices in the area.
