Hotels/motels near LAX

Hi all,

Next month I have an evening flight into LAX and a noon flight out the next day. I need to find somewhere to stay for the night. All the reviews I read for motels in the LAX area seem to indicate they are all in a bad area of town. Any suggest for a decent and reasonably priced (read fairly cheap) place to stay??

thanks, Jay

Try the Holiday Inn Express on Washington Blvd in Venice. It's close, and you can walk to a great restaurant for dinner, while feeling the ocean air.

El Segundo and Manhattan Beach aren't bad parts around LAX. Manhattan Beach just a few miles south of LAX is upscale. You might want to look at the El Segundo motels/hotels and they provide free shuttles to and from LAX. Hacienda is one that's less than $100/night and provides free shuttle. Belamar in Manhattan Beach is a little more but provides free shuttle.

we stayed at the ramada plaza hotel lax el segundo. it is close to lax but we were not disturbed by airplane noise. there is a complimentary shuttle bus for airport/hotel. no breakfast was included in the price. we had a large, clean room.

like you, we had read so many bad reports of hotels around lax and were expecting the worst. we were happy with our choice.

we booked on www.sidestep.com

good luck

There are plenty of hotels near LAX. If you plan on walking aroung the town late at night, it could be dangerous, but these LAX hotels are fine and safe. There is a Marriott and Hilton very close by with shuttle service.

When at LAX we always stay at the Doubletree. It is in El Segundo in the industrial part of town. There is a shuttle to LAX, you get yummy warm cookies upon check-in, and comfy beds. We usually pay about $99/night but that is for park'n fly so maybe you could get a cheaper rate. It is a nice place. Good luck to you.
