We were very happy with the value we received and the service and cleanliness of this hotel. Definitely a good place to stay around LAX but not too close so you can hear the noise. The room was large and although the decor wasn't spectacular the room was comfy and clean. Well done!

We stayed at this hotel twice as a stopover for an international trip. The accommodations are acceptable, and the location is quiet. The big negative is the airport shuttle. We had to wait a long time to be picked up at the airport. The second time, our wait was 1 1/2 hours. We called the hotel multiple times and still... More

We chose this hotel as a transition stop from Taiwan to Kansas because its price was more acceptable compared with most hotels closer to LAX which provided free airport shuttle. When we arrived at LAX we were not sure if we needed to call the hotel for shuttle, but after a short wait we saw one coming, so we showed... More
