“Decent place for the price”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

Booked three nights with priceline & was a really good deal- hotel is average- nice staff - location is a little out of the way- but you can't beat the price.

i stayed there for sometime, i would say a good month and one morning i woke up to get some breakfast and a dead ROACH was in the middle of the hallway. I called the front desk three times to get it up and they didnt! We also found one in are bath tub the size of a donut hole. We asked if we could getaway night free but the manger refuse and took 10 dollars off are bill. Also the pool was green for about 2 whole weeks, my husband and i will never stay at this hotel again. I rather stay at a hilton,where i know it will at least be clean and have a good staff!

Stayed here for 2 weeks while on holiday from Scotland in Sept 2010. Great place to explore LA, Newport, San Diego,Hollywood, and other local areas we even drove to Vegas for the day! Fairly near to LAX just along the freeway take turn off when you see the ikea about 15mins or so. Nearest city would be long beach has a nice beach front and marina. Close to Universal studios and all locations in LA to see eHollywood etc. we were a bit unlucky with our rooms had to move twice due to ants then a leak! Rooms where clean and OK aprt from that tho. Staff nice and helpful, Included free breakfast which was good. Booked through expedia flight and hotel was £800 good value. Hotel is in retail park with big Target for all your needs,a Chillis, Dennys, Pizza Hut, Panda Express and other food outlets good choice to eat. Had poolbut didnt use it wasnt heated and didnt look very nice tbh!
But good location for exploring what South California has to offer!!

My wife and I stayed here recently as we were going to see a soccer game at Home Depot Center. We were a little suspect simply because it was so inexpensive but we were pleseantly surprised. The staff was super friendly. The rooms were modest but very clean and since we weren't spending much time in the room we were fine with it. The hotel is really convenient if you are there for an event and we found it comfy and pleseant. Hope this helps someone.

This hotel was horrible, old, smelly and I just didn't feel safe. We ended up staying for one night since it was late but booked at a different hotel nearby first thing in the morning. All I need is a clean comfy room and I need to feel like it's a safe environment. This hotel did not provide that for me.

getting to the hotel didnt take very long; about 15 minutes from LAX. First impressions was it looked quiet good. The rooms were very cleans and the beds were comfy. We had cable in the room which gave a variety of channels so sometimes it felt good to stay in.

Breakfast was a great start to the morning, especially the fresh waffles... the hotel provides the batter and you make the waffles yourself which was quite fun, there was other option such as cereal and toast etc. Hotel staff were very helpful and didn't seem too bothered by anything we asked of them.

The mall across the street was very usful, there are many restaurants and shopping facilities so you didnt have to travel far to get a good meal.

You need to to travel on the trains to get to any of the main tourist attractions (namely hollywood) but this wasnt too much bother as the days were nice. Though it did usually take about a hour each way, which seems like such a long journey on the way back to the hotel.

Downsides - the hotel had a swimming pool but during our stay we were unable to use it due to some works going on with it, which was quite a disappointment.
Also, at one point I keft my phone in the room and come back to find it was not there, on reporting this to reception my phone mysteriously appeared back in my room later that day, which the language being change to spanish... so I do believe it was stolen, but I guess I did get it back.

Its a good hotel but the location could be better for attractions.

The location is pretty good; shopping and freeways nearby. That's absolutely all it has going for it.

Aside from that, the property is a dump. Old and threadbare; and it gets worse. Free Wi-fi? Doesn't work. Potholes in the parking lot you could lose your car in. You can see daylight around our room door. Thought I had see it all, but this is a new low.

Dark, dingy hallways smelled of pot and fried chicken. You can hear EVERY WORD EVERYONE SAYS ALL THE WAY UP AND DOWN THE HALL. ARE YOU GETTING THE HINT? IT'S *NOISY*.

Today is Tuesday; supposed to leave on Friday. Dunno if I can make it or not.

Prepaid through Hotwire, so no refunds or early checkouts. BTW, don't use Hotwire. Ever. They claimed that 80% would recommend this dump. I don't believe that for a New York minute.
