“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This was the best hotel that we stayed in during our 8-day Los Angeles/Las Vegas/Grand Canyon trip. Though it has been around for a few years, the place is well maintained and worth the price for staying in the LA area. The room are large for a hotel room and very comfortable. The continental breakfast is more than adequate and the staff very pleasant.

stayed here for night nights before the flight home... very comfortable, clean spacious room... very friendly check in staff... they gave me all the information I needed to catch the bus to Santa Monica and Venice Beach which only cost $1... very good value,,,, the Travelodge has a small pool... I didn't go it but the children in the hotel and some adults seemed to enjoy it.....the only thing that let this stay down was the free breakfast... but as Dennys is only outside it was no great hardship to go there....the staff there was also very friendly..... the Travelodge also has to petrol stations right outside which sell basic things if needed who were also very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I had room 111,,, your doors in this room do not open out onto the pool if that's what you want...

We had a late night international flight back to Australia so we took advantage of the day rate option. You can book in at 9am and checkout is 8pm. They also offer a complimentary breakfast but we were not there for that. We arrived at LAX at 9 am and phoned the hotel for the complimentary shuttle service back to the hotel. The courtesy shuttle arrived within 5 minutes. The lady at check in was welcoming and friendly. When we enquired about going to Santa Monica for the day, she referred us to a private driver that was present at the hotel and we were quoted $45 to get to Santa Monica. For an extra fee he returned for us and also drove us to Hollywood and waited for us and returned us to the hotel later in the afternoon. It gave us the freedom of staying how long we wanted to and going where we wanted to go without having to pay expensive organised tour prices. The room itself was clean and the pool was being used by guests and looked inviting. The hotel's location was so convenient to get back to LAX that night, again using the complimentary shuttle which saves money on taxis or other shuttle companies. The drivers are courteous and the shuttles leave every half hour to the airport. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for the convenience of being close to the airport, the reasonable day rate and somewhere to leave your luggage while you sightsee for the day and have somewhere to come back to for a rest and a shower before your flight. Having Denny's next door was an added bonus as it was reasonably priced and the food was good.

Room Tip: Might be a bit noisy if in a room close to the pool area.

Thank you for submitting a review of your recent stay with us. The day rate is a popular option with travelers who have a long layover between flights. For a moderate day room rate you can spend the time relaxing by the pool or taking a city tour either by bus or private car. The convenience of having a room in which to leave your luggage and then freshen up before a long flight is definitely a plus. The Denny's Restaurant which adjoins the hotel is also very convenient for having a meal ...good food and a reasonable price.

We found this to be very good value, close to the airport and regular free shuttles. The reception staff were very friendly and when they saw we were seniors asked if we had heavy luggage and no lift for the two storey site so they put us in a ground floor room next to the pool which is a good size. We found the rooms quiet enough near the airport but a sign said they supply earplugs for light sleepers. A late check out of 2pm fit in really we for our flight the next day. Our booking included a continental breakfast which was far wider than that description. We will certainly use this hotel again on any LA stop-over and found the rating of 3.8 a bit low -- OK it's not the Sheraton or Marriot but for the cost it is probably better value.

Thank you for providing a review of your recent stay with us. The key to success of any business is the friendliness and proficiency of the staff. Anticipating the needs of a guest is crucial to good service.
The continental breakfast room was recently expanded to provide additional seating. The menu was also enhanced with waffles, pancakes, sausage, and yogurt.
A guest computer center in the hotel lobby enables guests to access emails, print documents, and obtain domestic boarding passes at no cost.
The hotel does provide at no additional cost a late checkout of 2 p.m. If an overnight guest has a very late departing flight, they can remain in their room until 8 p.m. for a very modest "extended" rate.

....from Texas to Hawaii and vice versa we stayed a night here. The location is very convenient and the shuttle service is very efficient. Call for shuttle pick up (which arrives quickly) and leaves every 1/2 hour from the hotel to the airport--just go to the lobby for the quick check-out about 10-15 minutes before the departure time.

We stayed on the first floor to the west of the pool the first night on our way to Hawaii. Nice to just step out the back sliding door to a clean smoking area in the courtyard. The A/C drowned out the road noise from the streets nearby (Century & Aviation).

On the return trip, we were on the second floor in the northwest corner of the pool courtyard building. Nice balcony looking out to the LA sunset--and a nice place for a morning smoke (or two!) & coffee before getting on the last plane to get home.

We slept well each night on the reasonably comfortable beds.

The coffee makers are those single cup style with the coffee in a little pad in the disposable tray. Just ask at the front desk for some extras or pop into the very efficient Denny's next door for some better coffee to go. Don't worry, they are used to seeing hotel guests wearing their jammies getting their caffine fixes---at least they are NOW!

This place is nothing overly fancy but I'm not sure you can beat the value for overnite layovers such as we used it for. The Denny's just on the other side of the front desk area added to the functionality as well.

We will definitely use this airport hotel for a rest stop on any other Pacific Island/Asia trip we plan in the future. I probably wouldn't stay here to explore LA/southern California, but for a transitional travel stop this place was perfect--very accomodating for that purpose.

There are many reasons for which guests decide to select a particular hotel. Regardless of the reasons for which a traveler may select the Travelodge at LAX, our staff strives to provide a lodging experience that fulfills their particular needs. Our goal is to give the traveler a hotel option that includes moderately priced room rates; excellent guest services; in-room amenities; and complimentary shuttle service, continental breakfast, newspaper, computer center and Wi-Fi access.
Thank you for submitting a review of your recent stay. The best accolade the staff and management can receive is when a guest returns to stay with us.

I made a reservation online advising them I would be arriving early and they said that rooms were available from 9am if not earlier, since I was planning to leave at 11am I just wanted a quick shower and lie down. I got the shuttle over and was told that no rooms were available until 930/10am and they were only available at 9am if they weren't full the night before even though I had emailed and booked then called and spoke to them to get the shuttle they didn't mention this. I said I would just get the shuttle back but they said that I couldn't get it because I wasn't a guest at the hotel and would have to get a taxi, they finally let me take the shuttle back (after quite a bit of arguing and tears - since i had just been on a 15hr flight and was tired)! They should have told me when I called or in the emails that it wouldn't be ready until later and I wouldn't have wasted my time and money to get another luggage cart!

Since the goal of our staff is to relieve the stress of travel, the situation experienced with this guest is regrettable. Day rate rooms are available for check-in generally prior to 9 a.m. Rarely but can occur there may be a wait of 30 minutes to be registered in a room. Ninety-five percent of our day rate guests are waiting for late departing flights. Consequently, the guest's short stay of 2 hours did not register with the hotel's phone operator. The 30 minute delay in having a room available reduced the time to 1 1/2 hours. The staff person who was on duty at the time of the incident has been counseled that even though an arriving traveler does not have a reservation and the accommodations for whatever reason does not satisfy their lodging needs, we will shuttle them back to the airport at no charge.

Stayed for two nights while exploring LA. We knew that it would be noisy as it practically overlooks the runway - Century Blvd runs parallel to the airport! The room was however clean and comfy with a balcony overlooking the pool. We didn't expect too much from an airport hotel, and it was only meant to be a quick overnight place to sleep. The kids did make use of the pool which was a good size. Although the breakfast was included, it could be drastically improved. It was really hectic as the time was limited that it was available. The breakfast room was small and cramped and the queue for the 'make your own' waffle machine was crazy. Overall a good stopover for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the inside and not overlooking Century Blvd and the runway!

Thank you for submitting your review. The staff and management are always pleased to learn that a guest is surprised by the quality of the hotel in light of the moderate room rates and the 2 to 3 star rating.
The definition of a continental breakfast can be misunderstood. We have a Denny's Restaurant that adjoins the hotel and provides a full breakfast menu...kitchen prepared selections. A continental breakfast is not a full service breakfast--we are not licensed to serve restaurant style food. We have two waffle machines and a pancake maker. As in a full service restaurant and in our continental breakfast "restaurant" you may have to wait a few minutes for one of the machines to be available. Other menu items include sausages, bagels, yogurt, 3 choices of fruit juices, fresh fruit, toast, choice of hot or cold cereal, cream cheese, etc. etc.--a complimentary amenity. The seating area accommodates 55 with outside seating in the garden and pool area. Regrettably the need to "drastically improve" our continently breakfast service is not feasible within the definition of a continental breakfast both for menu items and meeting city food service code requirements.
