Sketchy area, only 15 minutes from LAX with a shuttle provided. The park and fly includes 7 days parking so if you have an early flight out of LAX this is a real help. The hotel itself is fairly run down, the restaurant is kinda gross (free breakfast provided) but they seem to be trying to clean it up. We... More

We arrived late at the hotel, and were very tired. Once in our room, we noticed the bathroom had NOT been cleaned. Not going into detail, suffice to say, it was dirty. I phoned the front desk, and he was willing to move us, which was nice. However, we were very tired, and just wanted to go to bed. I... More

nice and quiet on the third floor. I love it when my white sox stay clean from the carpet. Really good housekeeping service. The price was right for a stay in SoCal. Very friendly front desk. The pool was kind of cold but clean. Very convenient location for us.

The South Bay hotel is convenietly located to LAX. Our room was good but the breakfast options were poor. There were 4 choices (very small) most with food options that I can not eat. We always stay at a BW Plus because of the wide variety of food offered. This was not even close.

Bad smoke odor in the room. I think the smell is trapped in the carpets as the bed did not smell of smoke. Not enough plugs for technology of today for business traveler. Needs more lighting in parking lot. Breakfast was ok, not very many choices. Staff was nice at check in and check out. Area is average at best

I stayed only one night but based on my experience I wish I had stayed longer. The property is conveniently located near the beaches and the airport, and the premises were clean and well cared for. The staff was welcoming and efficient. Overall, it is a good place to stay in the South Bay/Beach Cities area of Los Angeles.

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice, clean, hotel at such a reasonable price, near the airport. Parking, however, was limited. The pool and hot tub are located in the parking lot and does not open until 10am. We tried to heat up the hot tub, but it never got very warm. We appreciated how quiet the room... More

We made a reservation with this hotel through the parksleepfly.com. We needed to cancel and called the hotel within the cancellation time as instructed. Our first hotel contact did not know anything about this parksleepfly, and told us to contact them direct. The second employee also told us to contact parksleepfly direct. We called parksleepfly who told us to call... More

The room was clean but the breakfast was super odd. You ate in a Chinese restaurant. Wouldn't choose to stay here again. Rooms are dated and the beds were only ok. We checked in late and left early so it was ok for something like that but would not choose this hotel if I wanted a place to stay for... More
