Great spot for a quick business trip. Was able to get in and out easily. The parking was easy to find and use, secure too with a guard posted. I enjoyed the room and the decor. Everything was comfortable and easy. 100% Would visit again!

Found this place based on reviews. Reviews did not disappoint! Really cool spot near the gates of Chinatown. Very near downtown LA, and just off the highway. Lovely rooms! We had a large spot in the corner of the hotel that actually featured a small balcony. 20 minutes after checking in, the front desk called to ask if everything was... More

I have stayed in this hotel at least 7 times over the past five years on work trips. It is convenient and clean. If you are looking for a fancy or highly modern hotel -- this one is not for you. But if you just want a decent place to stay in order to have fast access to downtown LA... More

The room we had was very nice and the hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. I just had coffee in the morning but it looked like a pretty decent breakfast for being included. Felt safe because a room key is needed to reach top floors where the rooms were.

We arrived in LA at the San Pedro Pier, wanted to go to Universal Studios, and take in whatever else we had time for in 1 day and a bit. The hotel was located almost enroute from the Pier to U.

Centrally located in L.A., close to Silverlake, Pasadena and Hollywood areas. Easy to get to the Cathedral and L.A. Live/Staples Center. The n/b entrance to the 110 freeway is about a 3 minute drive from the hotel. Have stayed at this property in the past and would stay again!

It was a very clean place. Rooms comfortable, good food esp since I am a meat eater- parking @ $10.00 a night should have been told when ordering room. A charge for assistance with directions.is a bit much. It is such a small amt. is not the issue,it is that this charge is placed on your bill w/o telling us.

Dear Janice. Thank you for the compliments regarding our property. As for the charges you stated, it had me concerned so I researched your room folio. I do see 2 very small charges on there.

This establishment offers very good value for a downtown city location, and it is very convenient to access to the all freeways. In addition, it is also walking distance to nearby Japan town and Mexican town. The hotel courtyard gives you a feeling that you are in an Asian bazaar.

I've said it before. The Ice machine was terribly loud, and the front desk didn't care. No sleep = bad visit. I asked them for help, and they suggested moving my room...3-4 hours before I needed to get up. I finally took the initiative to figure out what the noise was...it was an incredibly loud Ice Machine. I disconnnected it,... More

Best Western Dragon Gate Inn is located near Chinatown and near the Amtrak station. Good value for the price. Clean, secure, friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast includes made-to-order eggs, good sausages, waffles and the usual cereal/pastries/yogurt type items. Yang Chow Chinese restaurant, directly behind hotel, is excellent!
