Very close to LAX and the freeway so it was a convenient stay for a visit to LA and Santa Monica. Room was very clean and appreciated the mini fridg and microwave. The staff was friendly and the shuttle service to the airport and to my rental car company was super easy. The neighborhood is not one you would want to walk around but the free parking worked well with the rental car. Breakfast, while not inspired, was acceptable. Good value for what I paid for the 4 nights. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Pool located on 2nd floor but I chose the 4th floor for the quiet.

About 1 mile from LAX, this Best Western, like many others in the chain, is well run, clean, pretty comfortable although not fancy in any way. The staff is accommodating and friendly and a shuttle runs, every hour on the hour, to LAX. Not a bad deal. The neighborhood, itself, is not great. Nothing to look at and nothing to encourage anyone to walk around at night. Still, if you need a good place near the airport, Best Western is the place to be.

A good, no frills place for early AM departure. Free parking, easy access to rental car return down the street, and nicely decorated large room with fridge, microwave, small couch with comfortable beds and good TV. We had room facing opposite Century Blvd and had great view of incoming planes which my Son loved. Had a restful night before very early departure, and had no problems here except very slow WiFi. A good value and very near LAX. We did not feel the neighborhood was unsafe as others have said, but we didn't wander around.

Great location for staying near LAX, free shuttle and nice over sized rooms. For a BW plus property I thought they would have fitted sheets but they don't. Other than that this was a great place to stay for an early outgoing flight. No on sight amenities, but a few places to eat and a liquor store across the street. A great place to watch the big jets land at LAX from the pool area on the second floor. I would recommend staying at this location.

Room Tip: A room on the back side facing the neighborhood gives the best view for watching the jets.

I had to book last minute due to my late flight arrival which caused me to miss my international connection. Staff were helpful and friendly, although often there was only 1 receptionist at the front desk which sometimes meant a wait for service. Considering the hotel was booked out during my stay, this was a little inconvenient at times. The room was comfortable and large.

We liked staying here. We got a room on the fourth floor facing the neighborhood. Not the main road. We had a nice view. Very quiet. We called from the airport to get the shuttle since it was one am. We checked in very fast. I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask to stay off the main road.

Was in transit to Boston and required a Hotel for the night. This particular Best Western is very much like the others in the Chain, clean and well run. A free shuttle to LAX is provided although the frequency is not as often as the larger Hotels located around LAX. However a phone call to the Hotel ensured minimum waiting time at LAX. The shuttle actually leaves the Hotel every hour on the hour 24/7.

The Hotel itself, unfortunately, is not in a particularly nice neighborhood. With food delivery to the hotel ending at 9.30pm, its useful to have your meal at LAX rather than risk walking out of the Hotel after night fall. There is a 7-11 directly across the road from the Hotel where essentials can be procured inclusive of meals, if desperate. I don't believe that the location of the Hotel is a true reflection of Inglewood, and I noticed that in addition to the upgrading of the Tom Bradley terminal, there seems to be a concerted effort to improve the suburbs around LAX which they sorely need.

The staff at Reception were extremely helpful and seemed to be experienced. I was checked in within minutes and in my room within 5 minutes of arrival. The lift painted gold is a sight to behold but it works albeit a bit slowly.

The room was large and clean which tends to be a feature of Best Western's so this Hotel does not disappoint. They still maintain some smoking rooms but useful to book in advance as they are limited. I stayed at this Hotel both when arriving into the US and the day before I departed and in both cases the room cleanliness was to a high standard with the Air conditioning a welcome relief from the stifling heat outside. Having said that, the rooms could do with some upgrading as there is a distinct 70's air about them.

A simple breakfast was part of the rate. Don't expect much from the Breakfast although I thought the waffles (self serve) and coffee were quite good. The lobby is a bit small, so there are limited seating for breakfast although I was not too fussed as the turnover at breakfast tended to be quite high leading to tables vacating quite quickly. On my return trip, I had a few hours free and the reception was kind enough to organize a private limousine tour of LA which I enjoyed very much. Cost wise it was a little bit on the high side but I was able to discuss directly with the driver an itinerary that suited both my interest and time limits.

Overall, I would still stay at the Best Western suites again for its proximity to the Airport and friendly Receptionists, which is a welcome relief after an 18 hour flight over from Asia.

Room Tip: Lift is a bit noisy so its better to get a room in one of the wings away from the centrally located...
