We needed a safe place to stay for one night on our way back from Arizona in order to deliver a rental car at LAX the next day. This motel served that purpose very well. It has free parking and is not far from the Long Beach coastline of Belmont Pier where we also spent some time in the ocean. Our room was big and quiet, despite the motel's location just beside a roundabout with heavy traffic. The people at the front desk did their best to make our stay enjoyable. The pool area was closed when we arrived, but it opened later in the day. The drive on highway 405 from nearby the motel to LAX went well, despite the hard-driving traffic that characterizes L.A. freeways.
