POSITIVES: Extremely close to LAX, you can pull out of the driveway and literally be at the terminal area in five min or less. Noise is not a problem, nor is traffic in this general area. Rooms were tidy. Towels and bed-sheets were replaced daily. Breakfast was decent (I really don't know why people are whining about it so much) and consisted of self-make waffles, several cereals, milk, orange juice, guava juice, sparkling water, bread/bagels with toaster, and various condiments. I always caught the earlier breakfast hours, and supplies were always plentiful. Common sense should suggest that food choice/availability will wane as breakfast time (nearly 3hrs) comes to a close. Staff was very friendly. Communication in English wasn't a problem. Spanish and Hindi speakers were available as well, for guest convenience.
NEGATIVES: There weren't many, as it ~is~ rather ridiculous to nitpick a budget hotel. My biggest problem was with the surprise $5/night parking fee, which was not mentioned at any booking point, and sprung upon you at the desk. You receive an ID tag for your car, and THEY DO CHECK THE LOT (and in theory they'll tow) so there's no point in trying to get around it. On the other hand, they do now have an expanded parking lot on the other side of the street from the hotel, so I never had a problem finding parking, even when coming in after midnight. Also the bathroom floor wasn't the cleanest (lot of hair) but I asked the custodial staff to pay extra attention to that, and they did, so no biggie there.
All in all, I'd definitely stay here again. I PriceLined this place for nearly 1/3 of the going market-rate, and was happy with what I got for the money.
