This hotel generally has great rates and is a perfectly acceptable place to stay. Just don't let the tripadvisor reviews make you believe it's a GREAT place to stay! The hotel is standard-issue Comfort Inn. Being newer, the rooms are in good shape and quite comfortable. Breakfast isn't particularly good but is, of course, free. Only hot foods are scrambled eggs (processed, of course) and a waffle machine.
The staff is friendly and they gave us a small welcome bag upon arrival (including, of all things, a razor!). The biggest weakness of the hotel is that the neighborhood is no great shakes. That said, they've developed a small "hotel row" (even closing off the street behind the hotel), so you're pretty isolated from any potential problems. It also means the location is completely without charm.
With a car, it feels perfectly safe, as there is a locked garage 100 feet from the hotel. I'm not sure I'd be keen to use public transport to get there. Good highway access to all of LA from the hotel (well, good access if you don't hit the bad LA traffic).
I'd recommend the hotel for folks looking for a cheap but safe place to crash for a night near the LAX airport, and perhaps for folks looking to save money on a longer LA stay. You won't particularly like the location, but it's perfectly acceptable, and you'll save money over other choices in better neighborhoods.
