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

The hotel also offers shutle service to the airport. at the hotel... More

Clean and quiet. Staff nice and friendly from desk to cleaning staff. Did not try the free breakfast available or the restaurant but it's all there if you want/need it. Two minor problems. Two-speed hair dryer only operated at low speed so took twice as long to try my hair as usual. During showers, if a person in, probably, the... More

I've stayed here quite a few times over the past few years and it is better now than ever. I'm surprised to see so many mediocre reviews. Somebody has put a lot of money into remodeling pretty much everything here. The parking lot, the landscaping, the lighting have all been redone. The pool is nice, great parking, two elevators, two... More

Anything at or close to LAX was too expensive, at least at the time we enquired. So the Best Western at Lawndale filled the bill. A neat, clean property with a restaurant in-house gave us what we wanted. Off-street parking, clean comfortable room at a reasonable price. Pool and spa. Easy to find and a convenient run to LAX, 20... More

The decor is a little dated but so easy to overlook considering the price is so very reasonable, the very high level of service and the full, restaurant served hot breakfast. Remarkably good internet service -- roughly 10mbps up and down on the in room ethernet -- and excellent shuttle service people who went above and beyond!
