This Wingate is a reliable, inexpensive, non-luxury, airport hotel with comfortable rooms, and good service located next to Interstate 405. Free parking, free WiFi, free buffet breakfast and in room refrigerator and microwave provide easy family comfort. Bathrooms are clean with combination bath/shower. An airport shuttle makes airport access convenient.
The fitness facility and the equipment are in excellent condition and open 24/7. It features elliptical trainer, treadmill, bicycle, free weights, and universal type weight equipment. In the lobby is a business facility with two computers and a printer. The parking is above and below ground.
Formerly a Hampton Inn, the property was totally refurbished and became a Wingate property a couple of years ago. The hotel has become very popular and tends to run at an increasingly high capacity, particularly because of TripAdvisor’s favorable reviews.
However, as an airport hotel, it does not have shops or restaurants nearby, nor is the neighborhood attractive for walking. The hotel experiences some airplane noise and road noise from a nearby expressway, which in my experience didn't interfere with sleeping. While the beds are comfortable, they may be soft for someone who needs firm bed support at night.
The hotel is comfortable for airport travelers or family lodging, however, it does not provide diversions for children. Moreover, for travelers using the hotel as a base for visiting LA, a car is important as public transportation is not a good option.
