Needed one night accommodation that would be close to the airport for an early morning flight. This property had a good rate that included breakfast and free Wi-Fi. The breakfast is light with a choice of American or Chinese breakfast. The Wi-Fi did not work for my MacBook Pro, so I was disappointed about that. I just stayed at 2... More

After reading other reviews I was a little dubious about staying here however when we arrived we found that the area was clean and not at all threatening. The check in procedure was efficient and the room was good. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby many in walking distance, a 15 minute drive will get you to Manhattan... More

I used this Best Western as a "Stay and Fly " base. For the deal you get a night in the hotel and a week of parking for less than parking at the big lots at LAX. The hotel was very nice as was the staff at check in. The room was very comfortable and quiet. There was sufficient park... More

The price was fair, rooms were adequate, free parking and the CONCEPT of a free breakfast was nice. Unfortunately, the people serving breakfast are a little surly and there are greedy little signs EVERYWHERE indicating they expect tips (including signs at each of the tables). I came down for breakfast expecting a simple buffet with cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, etc.... More

Arriving through rows of empty buildings, street littered with trash and a filthy parking lot did not inspire confidence. That said the room was VERY nicve with a great bed and quiet. Good night's sleep. It went down hill again with a "cooked to order" breakfast that offered several choices - oops out of some of those - and was... More

Excellent, highly recommend this hotel. Good restaurants, food good with very reasonable prices within walking distance. Lighted areas, safe walking with others. The overall description of the hotel is spot-on. There is a washer/dryer facility, exercise room. Free breakfast is great. Great staff.

So, here's the deal... for the price, it's probably about the best you'll get in the Lawndale area... here are the pros & cons Pros: - Price: One of the lowest prices I would say, especially given the area. - Free Wifi: Compared to the previous hotel I stayed at in Lomita, I actually got really good speed and consistently...

Booking a Best Western hotel I expected some sort of standard, but I was wrong. It looked fine from the outside/lobby but problems began as soon as we checked into our room.
