“Excellent budget hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This was a very nice hotel. It is very convenient for LAX and car rentals and the interstate (I-105). The rooms have tempurpedic beds, refrigerators, and microwaves. The room had excellent lighting--poor lighting is one of my pet peeves regarding hotels. It was clean and large. The staff are friendly and helpful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Stayed here in December for a few days. As I was on a tight budget, decided to give this place a try even though the neighborhood is not idea (of course, I also can't afford Beverly Hills price).

Based on the reviews here, I came in with expectations of a reasonably well managed, clean hotel. Then, I was pleasantly surprised that it exceed all my expectations. Here are the highlights:

Location: reasonable
It's located right at the I-105 exit. Need to make a U-turn after the left turn as it's at the intersection and you can't turn left directly. I never had a problem making that U-turn 100 yard later, even during rush hour. It's about 5-10 min drive from most LAX Car rental places, i.e. very convenient to LAX and other destinations around LA The neighborhood is okay, but you probably do need a car to get around (typical of LA).

Please note that Inglewood is not the best neighborhood in LA but it's just about average LA for visitors/tourists who probably just staying this hotel to sleep. The hotel premises is well separated from the surrounding neighborhood.

Room: Very clean, spacious, and recently remodeled with good quality decoration you usually would expect in a much better hotel. The hotel premises are also very clean well maintained, showing its staff is taking pride in their job.
The windows are of good quality that I didn't hear much of the freeway noise.

Bed: good quality bedding and the bed is very comfortable.

Staff: very friendly and helpful. No problem checking-in/out.

There's no real breakfast but you can get a free muffin and bottle of orange juice. There's free coffee/tea in the front office. I personally would prefer a full breakfast, but it's really very few hotels will provide a good one so I usually ended up going out for breakfast anyway.

It has a pool but I didn't use it. Don't think it has a gym.

Comparing to most budget hotels I stayed in the past a few years, this is probably the best one, or at least one of the best. Will definitely consider staying here again next time I travel to LA.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly.

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. Ray the manager was fantastic, always available and ready to please.
My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights while she attended a training conference in Culver City. This hotel was cleaner and kept up better than some 4 star hotels that we have stayed in and that cost a lot more $/night.
It is also in a very convenient location just off the 105 and 405.
We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity to go back to LA.
Thanks again Ray for all your hard work!

This motel is very nice and extremely easy to get to from LAX and it's right off of Interstate 105. The rooms feel newly updated with flat screens, tiled bathrooms, and super comfy beds. I have never had a better hotel sleep than I had here. Plus, Ray the manager is very accommodating. Stay here for sure!!

Room Tip: Reserve in advance, it was pretty busy on the Friday we stayed.

I first stayed here after my friend and business partner told me it was the best nights sleep he'd had in a hotel. Getting a good nights sleep is the number one reason I tried it out and that's just what I got. The beds in this Inn are fantastic. The management is very hospitable. The rooms are clean. House keeping is thorough. I've spent dozens of nights in the last 6 months here and found every night to be consistent with excellent service. The only thing that could be improved on is the breakfast items.
