“Loud and scary”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

The only hotel on our four week trip we didn't feel safe staying at. When we arrived, we got two keys for a room but both didn't work (we tried them about a dozen times in different ways). The clerk told us they work for the staff but at least gave us a different room -- which turned out to be very loud because of its old / thin windows. When my girlfriend went to get from things from our car downstairs (during daytime), some guy on the third floor shouted obscene things at her and she had to rush back into our room. When I went out, he was still standing there, watching... Later, we wanted to get some sleep before our flight on the next day but weren't able to do so because of the thin windows. At 4 am or so, somebody knocked on our door, mumbling something and we were close to calling the police. We then left at 5:30 am or so, as soon as it wasn't dark anymore. Do NOT stay here!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. I am sorry that you had trouble with your room keys, and I want to also apologize for the thin windows. We are constantly trying to improve the facility for our customers. I also want to apologize for the situation with regards to your girlfriend, as we take pride in our customer's safety. In the event you do travel to this area again I would be more than glad to take care of your accommodation needs here or at another Best Western that fits your needs.

We never expect much from an overnight / airport hotel. This one was just about right.
The check-in clerk upgraded us when he saw we had 3 kids (no roll away was available) so we got the 2 Q + sofa bed room. That was a really nice and we didn't even have to ask. Shows an employee going above and beyond for guest comfort. Plus Plus.
The room was clean and comfortable. We never got to the pool because of the later arrival, so can't comment.
Important: the airport shuttle was promt and friendly. About a 10 minute drive. There were hotels that were closer, but we always select BW as we are rewards members and they always have a breakfast. this breakfast was average in terms of selection (we've see much better) but everything was very fresh.
The location is a bit in the busy part of Inglewood on a busy corner, but it got quiet enough at night.
We would stay agian.

Stayed here overnight and for one day before flight back to NZ. Free prompt shuttle between airport and hotel. Friendly, happy staff who were willing to do whatever they could to make our stay a good one. Good price for studio style room, comfortable beds, immaculate, flat screen tv, microwave, fridge and tea/coffee making faciliites. Complimentary breakfast of cereals, waffles, assortment of pastries, toast and toppings.

We had a late flight out so staff were happy to keep our bags while we took an all day tour, then much later in the day were happy to deliver us to the airport.

The hotel is a little out of the way if you don't have a vehicle, so there's not much to see in the immediate vicinity. However, just loved Don Amigos, the Mexican restaurant across the road, and the service station and the dairy have snacks available if you're just in the room as a stopover. Management very helpful and knowledgeable about their city so I have no doubt that if we stayed longer this "isolation" would not be a problem. Other reviewers have suggested the hotel is noisy, and my travelling companion said the same, however I didn't find this a problem. Would stay again.

I stayed one night at this hotel as a result of the Tripadvisor rating and was not disappointed. In fact, it was better than I expected. The rate ($65 for a senior) was attractive. The room (206), while facing the main street, was not noisy, was unexpectedly large, very clean, and quite comfortable. Definitely merits the high rating.

.The rate is good, the hotel is clean, the room was large and had all the usual amenities - fridge, microwave, hairdryer, coffee making facilities etc BUT the real problem with this hotel is the bus transfer service which runs only approximately once per hour - this is a long time when you've just got off a transatlantic flight! The hotel is also about 4 miles from the airport in a less than great neighbourhood. Cars seemed to use the road outside as their own personal race track! The return bus transfer to the airport in the morning was also only once per hour starting at 5.00am.

We were only staying at the hotel for one night, which is probably all you would want but if you are getting off a long flight you would be better to stay at a nearer hotel with a much more frequent bus service - we lost count of how many buses we saw go past for Renaissance, Marriot, Westin etc.

Don’t go to this hotel ever. The staff at the hotel are nice but the people that stay here are scary. The location is scary. It smells weird…. The building is old and feels dirty…. You can hear everything that is going on in the other rooms… The rooms are OK but the atmosphere at the hotel was so terrible that everything felt really uncomfortable. I wouldn’t even pay $50 / night to stay at this place. If stuck in LAX please find a different hotel, even if it costs a little more, its worth it!!

We were pleasantly surprised..room was clean, breakfast good and staff friendly and helpful.
Only downside is the location which is seedy and with poor dining facilities in the area. However the hotel shuttle is available free of charge to transport guests to/from local restaurants.Directly opposite the hotel, at the gas station, is a small convenience store selling basic foodstuffs and ready made food (not recommended) and there is a large coin laundry next to the hotel as well as a self use washing machine on the premises.
