this was a perfect hotel for our needs. however without a car we would have been unable to do what we wanted to do in los angeles. the hotel is 15 miles from lax, however you can drive almost straight to the hotel on one road, we found a much easier and less stressful route from the one offered by the car rental or the hotel website. the hotel is quite a distance from downtown LA, but in LA so much is far from everything, the place is huge. there is a metro 5 miles from the hotel and it has free parking, from there for $2.50 you can get to a lot of the touristy places, and if you like to walk, you can see even more. the hotel was small but the rooms were big, either 1 king or 2 queen beds, a fridge, microwave and coffee maker included. free parking. the hotel is in a very Hispanic area, not a problem for us but the locals seemed a little surprised to see us shopping for groceries etc., but they were all very pleasant and friendly, especially when they found out we were Canadians. the hotel is your regular motel, nothing fancy, but the room was right for us, we aren't fussy about fancy carpeting etc. the only downside was the motel is beside a gas station and sometimes it would be noisy at night from filling the tanks from gas tanker trucks. great shopping in the area, all stores close by, and it was nice to get back to bell gardens after a long day in LA, we recommend this hotel, plus the water pressure in the shower is unbelievable!
