“Could have been worse”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

After a week of chaos and ramped up stress levels, I decided to take a day off from work and unwind. My boyfriend and I decided to do a little getaway on a whim, and we booked this room the very day we planned to stay there. The price was great and it was close by Los Angeles where we planned to spend the rest of the next day. From the pictures, it looked like a decent place and it was close by the beaches..
Check in was at 3 and my boyfriend and I pulled in closer to 4, and after running some errands- we wanted to relax a little bit before heading out to the city again. My boyfriend and I checked in and opened the door to our first-floor smoking room. It was positioned on a weird, tucked away corner of the hotel and someone was really bumping their music. The room itself was as clean as it could present itself.. There were bars on the windows and we had an astonishing view of the parking lot. The windows looked like they hadn't been wiped down in decades, the curtains were dusty, the screen protecting the window had been ripped and tampered with and the closet looked like it never even belonged there..
After trying to ignore the music for about 30 minutes, we called up to the front desk and complained, asking if we could be switched rooms. The front desk attendant said they would take care of it, deeming a different room unnecessary. Another half hour later, we were so annoyed by the bumping music we just packed up our stuff and were ready to walk out, when we heard someone knocking on the next room's door. Hoping that it would've solved the problem, we waited another 10 minutes.. Still bumping. My boyfriend and I went to the front desk, informed the gentleman what happened, and he immediately switched us to another room.
This changed room was probably the saving grace of my entire getaway trip. It was QUIET, there was a table and chairs, the lay out of the room wasn't so awkward, and we had a beautiful, spacious balcony. Thanks to losers who had their music obnoxiously loud, we went from a motel stinker room in to a decent, clean, spacious room. I'm guessing we ended up in one of the more expensive rooms- but it's so much more worth it to spend the few extra dollars than to be caught in a bad, stinking room with bars on the windows.
I would never swim in the pool that they had, it's a tiny rinky-dink pool that's enclosed between buildings.. Literally on the other side of the wall of the front office and nestled next to the first building of rooms. Talk about awkward positioning?
In the morning, there is a free breakfast served: bagels, cereal, omelettes, bacon, toast, juice. I do know that they offer shuttle rides, but I'm not too knowledgeable in that aspect. They have room service, which is always a plus, and I remember their room service being reasonably priced. Not too sure how the quality of the room service was, but I probably wouldn't have risked it anyway..
The city in which this hotel is located... We went down the street to scope out the area and made a U-turn back in about 3 blocks. 4 different dollar stores within the span, you do not want to be walking down that street at night, and if you stay here- venture out a little bit further if you want to explore. Go towards the beach or just drive to LA.
Overall, the experience was manageable and affordable.. In the morning

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the first floor, consider non-smoking rooms.

The Baymont is a very nice hotel with clean, spacious, comfortable, well appointed rooms. After having stayed here a year ago my husband and I decided to stay here overnight before continuing on with our flight to Panama. The Baymont has an airport shuttle, so all was good, right?

We landed at LAX and went to the hotel shuttle area to await the shuttle. After 20 or 25 minutes we finally decided to call the hotel (at $3/min). We were informed that the shuttle stopped at 9:30 and that you have to call for it to come. Unfortunately the website doesn't specify that the shuttle is on demand rather than on a regular schedule. We hailed a cab and paid the $27 fare to the hotel.

At least we thought we would be able to take the shuttle in the morning thought I. But of course it doesn't begin until 7 am and we need to be at LAX by 7 so we paid another $24 for cab fare.

In the end we would have been far better off staying at one of the larger hotels with regular shuttle service closer to LAX.

Aside from my shuttle complaint we did have a nice stay. There are not a lot of restaurants in the area of the hotel, so it would be advisable to have a car if staying here.

I will never choose to stay in this hotel again. I heard a drug deal going on in the hallway, I didn't want to even sleep in the bed or step on the floor without shoes on. This place is just awful. I smelt nothing but pee when I walked into the room like someone had peed all over the place. I definitely would get a refund if I could.
