“Excellent for stopover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Excellent location. 10 minutes fron Lax and very comfortable. Proffesional staff! and good breakfast. I will certainly recommend it!! The shuttle is a plus. but it is also near to the beach. Good option if you want to get the best of California in a short period of time and not so expensive. Well located since thera are a lot of restaurants for lunch or dinner around and at th etime do some shopping. I had a great stay!

Staff was very friendly at arrival and check out. Shuttle service driver was very friendly even at midnight.. Shuttle came within 10 mins of calling for it. Bfast was excellent in the morning. Bathroom was very clean. Beds were excellent and the linen fresh. overall this turned out to be a very pleasant place and value for what we paid.

In all my years of traveling I have never been treated so badly by a hotel staff member. This Big guy at the front desk yelled at my husband and I when we requested to have the top safety latch repaired on our door. My husband asked for another room if they could not make the repairs. The big guy said that they were sold out and yelled at us that he would check us out of the hotel. It was only after I called Best Western customer service to complain did he have the door lock repaired.
Bottom line, I would recommend staying at any hotel where the staff feels they have a right to yell at their paying customers and threaten to kick them out on the streets.

Chose this hotel because of price and near rental car return. The hotel, pool and jacuzzi were very clean, staff friendly at check-in. Window opened to let in fresh cool air. We drove to Manhattan Beach (10 minutes away), there were several restaurants there and along the way. Redondo beach is also nearby. Great location for us. We left too early to experience the breakfast

The airport shuttle was a great plus specially coming from a long flight. Once at the hotel we were greeted and was given a very comfortable room which was clean and quiet. Breakfast had a lot of choices including waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage and yoghurt. Shops are close by and there is even a post office a few steps away. I'll recommend this hotel and come back to stay again.

Poor quality Hotel. Look elsewhere if possible. Ants in our room, Trash put in the back of my truck at night. A/C Unit noisy and blows up the curtains instead of in the room, price is right....but you get what you pay for. Bed rock hard and made without fitted sheets so you end up sleeping on the mattress itself ! Yuck.
