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

I will stay in this hotel again because the price was right and the employees were very kind. The breakfast was small, but filling and there was no pressure to tip unless you wanted to. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

No one would likely say that this was an updated hotel in a great neighborhood. However, it is close to the airport and the cruise port, they do have a great shuttle to both, the staff is very friendly, they offer long term parking while traveling, and the price is right. This was exactly what we were looking for ...... More

The location is difficult to beat. The shuttle is super convenient and was very fast. Restaurants, supermarkets, gas station, and even Wal Mart all within walking distance. I normally don't write reviews but I felt I had to leave a remark. I travel mostly for work. All the things I needed were there. The WiFi is super fast, was able... More

It's close to the airport and has restaurants and supermarkets, etc., within easy walking distance. These are some of the nicer things about this hotel. Other than that, the hotel is quite old and looks like it needs some updating, for example, installing a couple more accessible -- meaning not hidden behind the bed -- electric outlets would be nice....
