If you have to stay near LAX then I would highly recommended this hotel. The decor is very 70s, it's low rise and only 5-10 mins from the airport (depending on traffic). There is a shuttle bus, but remember that you there is a courtesy phone at the airport which you need to ring - the bus then comes for you. I didn't read the details properly and ended up getting a taxi. This is actually a much more environmentally friendly option that the other hotels who send their buses round continually - a terrible waste of fuel.
Rayna, the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful. She gave me a late check out which really made a huge difference to me. One hour less at LAX is an hour of life gained! I had also rang ahead and got an early check in. I was really impressed with this as their check in times (11am) and check out times (12) at very generous anyway.
I ate lunch across the road at an Express Panda Chinese take-away. There is also a 7 Eleven shop in the complex where I bought some Earl Grey teabags:) A kind woman in the hotel breakfast area gave me a cup of milk too. American's have good coffee everywhere, but unfortunately hotels seem to generally supply Lipton's tea, e.g. floor shavings:)
The shower was excellent, good pressure and there was a bath too. The bed was very comfortable. I was even able to open the window and have fresh air in the room (very rare in big hotels).
You do get breakfast too. I'm very into healthy food so some of the options were not for me. The coffee was fine and I made some fresh waffles with a batter they supplied. They had a fresh fruit basket. The convenience of this was great.
I am getting the shuttle bus back to LAX soon. It runs every half hour on the hour from hotel. After check up I'm using the lobby until I have to go to LAX. The wifi there doesn't work well at LAX, terrible shops and facilities (terminal 2 - not sure able other terminals).
