“A Pleasant Return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Back in the 90's we used to stay here when we'd come from Las Vegas for a long LA weekend. After a while, it started to feel less comfortable. Mostly because the property was going through some changes and needed some updating. When we were planning our trip this last February (2014), we checked the reviews mostly out of curiosity. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were many great reviews so we decided to give it a try. Initially we wanted an inner room but they were not available so we took an outer room - and we were fine with that. And the prices are great!

The Property: When we arrived, we were surprised to see how nice everything looked! The landscaping is well kept. The pool area was clean and inviting. The lobby was updated and uncluttered. The carpets looked very new and the walls were clean. The breakfast area was very comfortable. In the past, it has gone through many failed restaurants. I'm glad BW decided to make it their complimentary breakfast area. It was very basic but nice. The servers were very outgoing and pleasant.

Checking In: We arrived a little early in hopes that one of the inner rooms might have come available. It hadn’t and Rico told us our (outer) room would be ready in about an hour. We came back to find that while we were gone an inner room became available and Rico switched us to it. What a great guy!

The Floor and Room: We were on the 3rd floor facing the inner parking area (east). Elevator was clean and odor-free and inside stairway is carpeted and clean. The room was decorated very modern. A sliding glass door opened out to a small balcony. It was great to sleep with just the screen door. It appeared to be very safe. The king-size bed was very comfortable. The room included a couch, desk, chair, flat-panel TV and fridge. Bathroom is normal size. Vending machines were at the end of the hallway. The north door of our floor led out to the outer rooms and the outer stairways.

We will stay here again. The service was super and the property clean and tidy. Very easy access to and from the property. Main entrance can only be accessed by westbound traffic but there is a signal at the shopping/residential complex to the west of BW and you can drive through their parking lot to get to and from the motel no matter what direction you're coming or going.

I do not travel much but when I do, I look for the best rate, what they have to offer, I look at the surrounding area, and I look at the ratings just like you are doing now. I even got on Google to check out the area by satellite and street pictures. Even with all of this, there is still a certain amount of caution or uncertainty when I commit to stay. To start off, I will say we were Very Pleased with our stay. When we arrived we were warmly greeted. They gave suggestions where to go eat and what to see. The ocean is about 3/4 mile away (make sure you have quarters for parking- could not find free parking). The rooms were clean and it was recently remodeled. The whole facility was clean, landscaped, and pleasant. There was an issue with the cable, but the management already knew about it and actually had a cable tech working on it. during our stay. Food for breakfast was fresh and they rotated the hot meats each day. Their eating area was kept clean and food was always stocked. The pool was small but it was kept clean. Parking could be an issue but we were able to park close to our room. They did have a small gym area with all the equipment needed for a good workout, but I did not have the time to utilize them. To comment on areas that could be improved. For one, I would say the internet. For many hotels that I checked out I found internet access cost. At this Best Western, it was free which (a plus for them). I found that I had difficulties with it at times. I do not know if that is part of the issues with the TV or the amount of people on at the time. Still, we were able to use it. When we used the hot tub, the water was not HOT like we would expect (I suspect it was set to area standards). Also the water seemed to be cloudy. I do not know if this was because of chemicals of usage. Finally, they have tables set up in the lobby which looks funky. Apparently at times they experience a high demand for breakfast and utilize their lobby for breakfast. I understand the need/ usage of space, but just looks out of place. If you are in the LA area looking for place to stay that has a lot of amenities for a reasonable price, I would recommend this place. I will also state the Manager here was EXCELLENT! If you EVER had a question, concern, issue, he does he best to take care of you. Great stay.

Nice hotel. Great breakfast. Rooms are pleasant. 10 min walk to the beach. Easy access to everything else. Wonderful place to stay that feels like a vacation. Being in LA, you'll still end up fighting traffic to get anywhere (something you can't avoid) -- but this place isn't too far out of the way, is close to the beach, is a nice, safe, quiet beach community with plenty of amenities. And the hotel is very reasonably priced. I looked at the other hotels I was considering in RB and after seeing the rest in person, I believe I made the right choice in this one.

This hotel has a good location and spacious rooms but needs lots of updates. If it was updated would definitely consider staying again since the bed wss comfy and the staff were friendly and efficient and the assitant general manager was able to offer good suggestions of what to do.

The breakfast was average, the lobby was average, but overall what one can expect for the average Best Western.

Spotless Hotel with spacious rooms. Great deal, good value, easy location for the beach, shops, eateries etc. Right on top of the buses for Long beach, Santa Monica, Venice beach etc. The pier is lovely with some beautiful views. We walked along to Harmosa beach taking in the sight along the way. Wifi and printing a bonus.
The staff are very helpful and pleasant. Lovely time.

Room Tip: The main building is a great place to stay.

I have stayed at this property a number of times over the years, and it never fails to satisfy. The location, amenities and overall appearance of the hotel is always above normal and shows a committed ownership and management staff that "cares" about its clients who are treated more like family then just customers.
