Called from airport and they claimed they did not have a reservation for me. When I persisted, they found it. Then took nearly 40 minutes for van to pick me up. The room I was initially assigned was not made up and I was then given another after a delay. The room and bathroom were OK. Overall the hotel had... 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!

Very bad breakfast. Do not call your brekfast continental delux. You can choose between four different meals. Very small portions of food. You can only choose either coffee, the or juice (it is not juice, maybe you can call it orange water with sugar). The room is not quite, you can here all your neighbors talking in there rooms.

I visited this hotel only for 1 night and I found it pretty much average. It was like a layover at the hotel as I was with a tour. They had nice big rooms and wifi too. They also provided me with free breakfast. The only problem I had with my stay in the hotel was that in the room... More

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to write this hotel. The rate was fair about $112. Per night. When you go in to the lobby it has a restaurant which is a 24 hour Chinese restaurant. You're given a token for breakfast in that restaurant in the morning. So I go upstairs to my room. I find first off... More

Its proximity to the Intl Airport and its price are the only two redeeming factors. Rooms are spacious but they don't smell too good. Breakfast menu is fixed and thus not much to choose from. A one dollar shop just across the road gives good value for money.

They have management issues. The manager at the reception desk was extremely unfriendly. The bathroom cosmetics were inferior quality. On the other hand: The hotel is conveniently located near the LAX Airport & the hotel has a convenient shuttle service. The size of the room was good. The complimentary breakfasts were satisfying, we were served at our table promptly.

The hotel provide quite good service, such as airport pick up / drop off, internet and luggage deposit, with reasonable price. The advantage of this hotel is it is quite close to airport and it provides pick up / drop off service.
