I have had numerous travels to USA and have always preferred Best western for their standard practices and room offerings. The experience this time was quite different. The pick up was nice and smooth from airport, though they refused to drop us to a nearby mall about 3 miles away. Usually any best western would do that. The breakfast was... More

Best Westerns usually have pretty nice rooms, a heated pool for my kids, and a great buffet-style continental breakfast in the mornings. This one DOES NOT! It says it had a heated pool but it was freezing. It says it offers a continental breakfast but you have to order one of 4 meal options that include the smallest portions of... More

For anybody seeking a cheap decent place near LAX this place is ok. It is clean and the bed was ok...but it is very noisy! The walls/floors/ceilings must be very thin as I could hear all my neighbors talking and watching TV. The plumbing is especially noisy with every neighbor's shower sounding like Niagara Falls. If your priority is saving... More

While checking in, I was asked, " Will you pay cash?" Not asking to show my driver's license made me uneasy especially the location was the L A airport. Upon entering the room, the entrance smelled like cat litter mixed with air spray. Bathroom items appeared like they were from dollar store. Bed linens were old and thin. Food tasted... More

I don't have anything bad to say about the price, the location (convenient to LAX), or the people who work here. However, I feel I need to warn potential travelers that when I woke up in the morning, I discovered three bedbugs on the sheets. One of them I trapped in a cup, and showed to the manager. He was...

Decent clean room. Staff fairly friendly. Easily accessible from the freeway. Complimentary breakfast was passable. Two choices only: Chinese or Western. For Western, omelette or waffle. Reasonably priced.

The room itself was okey, even if the cleaning lady had a tendency to throw away stuff that we didn't put in the trash can. The breakfast was more or less a joke here. We've been staying at Best Westerns in other places in the US and the breakfast have been so much better than at this place. We first... More

The room was very clean and bed was really comfy. Best of all it was spacious too. Front desk guy was very helpful. Only complain was the breakfast is limited and not free flow. It comes in set meal. Choose from Western (sausage/toast) or Asian (porridge - which taste pretty good). It would have been better if providing free flow... More
