“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Very nice place, u feel that ur in the middle of the nature. They need to work a bit more on cleaning. But in general it's a great value. I recommend this motel for those who don't wanna pay much and enjoy a great stay at the same time

We have stayed here 3 times in the last month whilst flying in and out of Los Angeles International. Airport hotels can quickly take on that well used appearance, with decor and communal areas becoming shabby very quickly. This hotel however avoids these problems, with rooms that are clean and well decorated and communal areas that are planted with a vast array of plants and trees all of which create an oasis of colour in an otherwise concrete jungle.There is a swimming pool for the use of guests and all the rooms are on either the ground or first floor.Whilst there is not a lift,management will help customers with their luggage into the first floor rooms providing each item is 50lbs or less, a nice touch! There is on site parking for guests of the hotel and for the adjacent Denny's diner and although the number of parking spaces is limited, on the two occasions I arrived with a car I was able to park without difficulty.
The free shuttle from the airport is very good, I used it only once, I had to phone a 1-800 number (free) from an airport phone and wait on the median under the overhead hotel shuttle sign. The shuttle arrived in about 10 minutes and in a further 10 minutes we were in the hotel car park.
The rooms are a good size, all with private bath & W.C and the complimentary WI-FI was good and reasonably fast and I was able to connect my note book with the minimum of problems. A complimentary breakfast is provided and although this is rather cramped the hotel offers a reasonable variety. All the staff I encountered including the cleaning staff were all very pleasant and helpful. As a result I would certainly consider using this hotel again if I was flying into or out of LAX, it represents value for money considering that it is situated just a few minutes from the airport.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are easier if you have heavy luggage

Guests who keep returning to lodge with us is the best compliment we can receive. Besides having the unique character of our fifties architectural style hotel, we have the benefit of a staff whose average employment tenure is 13.5 years. The carrying of luggage to the second level can be frustrating; however, there always is staff available to assist you.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of your stays with us.

Yes, it is as advertised, a property built in the '50s but well maintained and very servicable.
Pros: Our non smoking room was large with a very large comfortable bed. The bathroom was large enough, (about 8x10 ft est.) with a shower (no tub). The room has a fridge and "1 cup" coffee maker supplied with 2 packets of coffee, creamer etc. The room was spotlessly clean. The is free wifi, a flat panel TV, desk, night stands, alarm clock, wake up call service, ear plugs, free continental breakfast and a free Airport Shuttle. There is also a small convenience store open till 10:00 pm off the lobby.There is a large swimming pool. This property is filled with leafy plants and flowers, to include a large plant in our room adding a very nice touch (and a sense that someone cares about making the surroundings as pleasant as possible). There is a Denny's co-located with this property. The staff (Kimberly) was cheerful, pleasant and helpful.
Cons: This property, like the nearby (walking distance) Hilton high rise hotel, is located close to the airport; this means it's not the nicest of neighborhoods, noisy with both aircraft and traffic. The property is fenced with a high wrought iron security fence with in which are the room doors facing the street and parking area. Judging by what you can see from the hotel, this is probably not an area in which to take even a short late night walk to any nearby convenience store. The rooms have large patio doors facing the pool and inner courtyard but cannot be locked from the outside so you are forced lock the patio door from the inside and go out the streetside door and around part of the building to get to the lobby or nearby restaurant. I could hear people outside at night, and people in the next room and guests walking around on the floor above. Even if you are not a "light sleeper" you may want to take advantage of the ear plugs offered in the lobby.
In summary: If you plan a short stay, or like us, an overnight between flights, this is a good choice, close to the airport (meaning no long ride to the terminal), it's clean, well maintained with a good staff and is offered at a price point that targets value rather than luxury.

Thank you for having selected the Travelodge Hotel at LAX for your lodging needs. The hotel is 3 minutes from the airport terminals of the now 2nd busiest airport in the United States. Flights are departing or arriving ever 42 seconds. The goal of staff and management is to provide a moderately priced relaxed garden hotel setting that minizes the stress of travel.
Although the hotel is fenced, it was done to provide a secure setting in which our guests can relax. Security is an important responsibility that the owners of the hotel have addressed. We are not unlike gated communities designed to insure a tranquil and safe environment. Actually the City of Los Angeles is very aware of the importance of the economic value of the airport and place safety as a top priority. The area has the lowest crime rate in the entire city. Nevertheless, wheverever you travel being alert to any situation that seems suspicious is advised.

The day rate the hotel offers for individuals who arrive into LAX on an early flight then have to wait several hours for a departing one, is a very popular alternative for the traveler than sitting at the airport for 8 to 12 hours. The day rate provides a guest room with all the same amenities as received by our overnight guests.
Thank you for submitting a very positive review of the value of our day rate (from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.) option. Note--if you arrive prior to 9 a.m. and a room is availanlr from the previous night you will be checked-in immediately. The check out time can be extended on request to 9 p.m.

Location
Located about 5 minutes away from the International Terminal at LAX. Next door is a Gas/Petrol Station & Denny's, a cheap American chain diner. The hotel offers a 24 hour transfer service to airport every 30minutes on the hour. To get to hotel, you just have to call them and wait at pick up spot.
Room
Room was spacious and offered a large comfy king size bed- slept well. There is a large flat screen TV with full cable channels as well as movies on demand. The room has a desk with large ergonomic office chair and telephone on top (accompanied by many room service menus of local fast food places), a large wide arm chair, another desk and chair with mirror- for make up accompanied by a hot water machine and some coffee & tea. There was much cabinet and drawer space for clothes which had a iron & ironing board but no safe. Lighting was traditional lamps and overhead, not modern. Plugs were little limited to two under the slightly noisy old style air conditioning unit. There was also quite a large fridge.
The bathroom had a bath/shower combo and plenty of towels with a large sink - amenities included shampoo individual bottle & body and facial soaps.
Decor has some effort of a sort of California motel holiday feel to it, just bright blue colours but dated and conservative. Not modern but simple. However room was clean.
Facilities
The hotel offers WIFI for free in which works intermittently, but fast when does. There is a pool and gardens to walk around with palm tree- quite original. They do offer breakfast but did not stay overnight, for dinner Denny's next door is the closest place which is ok for burgers and high fat diner food. There is also a small shop located by reception for snacks and souvenirs type things.
Staff
Check-in and check out was smooth and staff seem friendly and helpful enough.
Overall only stayed here for day rest transit between flights which was excellent value at under sixty five dollars up and till 8pm. There is no reason to stay here unless you want to be on the door step of LAX. However it is a clean, comfortable and liked the decor of the walking around the well kept gardens and pool- an old skool California motel. Would stay again if between close flights.

Thank you for your thorough description our unique vintage hotel--"motor inn". We strive to preserve the fifties architectural design while continually upgrading the room amenities and complimentary guest services...all for a moderate rate. The manicured landscaping of flowers and fauna with the large, heated pool, and restaurant adjoining the hotel does provide a tranquil oasis to rest between flights

The day rate program chosen by this guest is popular for travelers who have long delays between flights. Also, if you over night and then have a late departing flight, the hotel provides an reduced rate called the "extended" stay.

We were due to fly out from LAX back to Australia, but there was a cancelled flight.
Luckily for us we had a friend also on the same flight, and she recommended Travel Lodge at LAX. We rang them at 11:00pm and they had one room left.
They sent the shuttle to the Airport to pick us up, and we got checked in straight away.
Room was clean, very tidy, and the shower was great.

We also found out that this hotel offers Half Day Stays, which is brilliant for us for future visits.
Our flights back to Aus are always late in the evening. Just how great would it be to stay half a day to shower, rest, check emails, and freshen up before a late flight back home. Bonus is the shuttle service to the Airport.

Thank you Travel Lodge....we will return.

Thank you for submitting a review of your recent stay. The half day rate is very popular with many travelers either arriving from or leave to New Zealand and Australia...the connecting flights always seem to result in a 10 to 12 hour layover. For a nominal rate the hotel provides a 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. day rate service (an hour extension to 9 p.m.is available on request)...which includes all the complimentary amenities. No reservation is needed. Many early arriving guests elect to take a half day tour of Los Angeles which leaves from the hotel or the Ocean Express to Manhattan Beach. The 24 hr. Denny's Restaurant/Lounge that adjoins the hotel provides for convenient food service. The hotel does provide shuttle service to other area restaurants.
