The front desk staff was very helpful and efficient. The rooms satisfactory, very low water level in toilet and it took ages for the tank to refill. Overall, the inside of the rooms, lobby and decor was beginning to look shabby. The breakfast almost unedible. The lobby needed dusting and vaccuming.

We finished the meeting early and got an direct flight out that day and the hotel refused to cancel our reservation. The hotel staff bounced me to Corporate and the 800-number bounced me back to the hotel. Everyone refused to accommodate the travel plan changes.

Unfortunately, this Best Western did not live up to its "plus" rating. I've stayed at other BW's with plus ratings, and they had beds, decor, lighting and breakfasts. This Best Western's breakfast was mediocre and the quality of the food was poor. Although the restaurant staff was very nice! There was not much attention to detail in the workmanship of... More

I would stay here again! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was just ok, not a lot of options. The beds were very comfortable, and the bedding was super nice! My kids slept like babies!

Just needed a place to crash on a layover at LAX. All the props go to the shuttle drivers - they were both great! The hotel itself is fine - super clean and basic. It's the only hotel that I've never had to show ID or put down a credit card.

Difficult to find a parking space, Food quality was VERY poor. Buy donuts or eat out is my recommendation. This is the only hotel in the world where there was only one small bar of soap for use in sink and shower. There is a difference in running a hotel economically and CHEAP.

Toilet didn't work good, poor wifi the whole time. The manager was very helpful but couldn't fix the bad wifi or replace the faullty toilet. Not a good breakfast, take away breakfast, the egg was bad! The breakfast in the dining room was meager. Not up to Best Western standards of a breakfast.

The area is great. Plenty of shopping and restaurants. Hotel is very safe. I would not stay again, because the rooms are just too noisy. Very thin walls. I could hear all my neighbors tvs and talking, as well as the folks upstairs walking, but sounded like stomping. And worse of all, the sound from pipes is horrible. You could... More
