“Bland, Noisy and Inconvenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I was put up on a recent trip to LA in an area and hotel I would've never picked. Regardless, there was nothing especially bad about this Best Western; it was just far from a palace. Comprised of several two story buildings, with rooms like an apartment building, you must walk outside whatever building you're in to reach the lobby. The rooms themselves are generic and bland with foreboding paintings of a sail boat shrouded in doomy clouds. The rooms are dark, the views nonexistent. It is virtually right on Rte. 405, the major north-south highway making it very noisy. There is no effective workspace with a small kitchen-style table that is too high and chairs that are too low. The free breakfast is usual low end continental fare. Skip that and go to Norms, an 8 minute walk around the corner and one of the best and cheapest breakfasts in LA. , On the plus side, the beds were comfortable, the staff, excepting one night-staff person, were very nice and the free internet worked well. They also have free valet parking.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room in back. Much quieter

I chose this hotel because it was close to my daughter and lots of attractions. We started each morning with a good breakfast with lot of variety. The hotel was close to freeways, but easy access to attractions and restaurants; such as the Getty Center, the art museums, and the Farmer's Market. I needed an extension cord, which was readily provided by the front desk staff. If I return to LA again, I'll very likely use this same hotel.

Well it is hard to choose the worst thing about his hotel…
1) Bugs on the bathroom floor
2) Screaming children running up and down the hallway early on a Sunday morning (for ~60 minutes)
3) Toilet that doesn't flush
4) Crappy breakfast
5) Hallway that smells like vomit (or maybe a corpse)
6) Returning to our room to find the window and door had been opened while we were not there…CREEPY
7) Paper-thin walls

The price was the only positive, and it was not worth it.

CHOOSE ANOTHER HOTEL.

We were surprised to find how convenient this was to all the places and things we wanted to do. Located on/near major arteries, we could traverse much territory without the horrid interstate traffic. Staff were pleasant and very helpful navigating the area.

We came to visit family in the area so this was absolutely perfect for our purposes they live right around the corner .Check in went off without a hitch our room was fine nice and clean and comfortable not overly large but there was a table and 2 chairs a microwave and bar frig... the bathroom was a bit spartan but there was lots of hot water for the shower so what it lacked in pizzaz factor it made up with comfort. In the morning when going for our complimentary breakfast we discovered a school was there the room was swarming with kids every table was taken or discarded food was left where a child had been. We did the best we could staff was very apologetic but hey kids go on trips they need to stay somewhere! We found a table moved the discarded food aside and proceeded to get our food the teachers clued in they were suppose to share this space and began to clean up the mess and reign the students in. The staff replenished the food stations and we had a breakfast of sorts.the next day the school had checked out so it was just regular people in the hunt for breakfast a much easier chore . Front desk staff were friendly and everything about our stay was just fine definitely will stay here again and recommend it to my extended family. We didn't use the outdoor pool just too cool so really cannot comment .

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the street noise so we overlooked the parking lot and it was quieter.

The staff at this inn were very helpful and courteous-checking in and checking out went well. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast had a decent variety to choose from. We worried about parking when we located the hotel (as we did not see much in the way of parking areas), but discovered they had free valet parking.

Our visit was centered around the BCS National Championship in Pasadena but wanted to experience Los Angeles and the surrounding area. This hotel was the perfect spot. We were close to the airport, Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Hollywood, Beverly Hills......and the tour bus will pick you up at the front door. City bus service is only a short walk away. I can't brag on the taxis as they were very rude, but that's not the hotels fault. The beds a VERY comfortable, rooms are clean, quiet and roomy. Bathroom is a bit small but wouldn't deter my stay again. But I cannot say enough about Fred, the manager!! He made our stay the best ever!! Wonderful, helpful and makes you feel like family.
