Travelodge Hotel LAX Los Angeles Intl
Ranked #105 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We spent the night at the hotel en route from the Philippines to Chicago and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is old but is amazingly well maintained. We stayed in a wing about as far from the desk as you can get and the decor felt like it was right out of the 80s but as I stated earlier it was OK because it was well maintained which actually gave it a chic feel. There was one thing that was a little disturbing and that was that I pulled the curtains all the way back and noticed that the sliding windows were unlatched and slightly opened. You had to pull the curtains completely aside to notice this. What was disturbing about this is that it was an outside room and someone could easily cut the screen and enter the room while we were away. I locked the windows and am giving them the benefit of the doubt that this was an oversight but I recommend you check the windows of your room anyway. Overall, however, it was a pleasant stay. The room was quiet and clean, the bed was comfortable and we had an enjoyable evening. We would stay there again.

Thank you for submitting your recent review. Your comment regarding the unlocked window is appreciated and has been reported to housekeeping. The room attendants will open the windows when cleaning; however, securing them when finished is important.
"...Well maintained that gave it a chic feeling" is exactly what we strive to do. We are a vintage property with an architectural style of the fifties. That said our goal is to assure that the "modern" conveniences are included--new mattress, 32 inch flat screen televisions, 17 oz. towels, in-room coffee, hair dryer, updated bed linens, iron and ironing board -- plus clean, clean, clean.

Like many flying out of LAX to the east coast, a hotel close enough to make a 6 am flight without having to get up at 3 am to drive into the airport is a huge quality of life issue. We have been flying in and out of LAX twice a month for a year now, and having a quiet place to lay our heads before a 4 am wake up is worth a whole heck of a lot.

To find one with gardens, really great beds, and a good price is even better. All of our rooms have been clean - it is an older hotel, but it is clean and it is quiet and the shuttle runs regularly.

We haven't had a single complaint with the hotel, rooms or the service. Great value.

Room Tip: There are rooms in the center courtyard, past the pool, which are really quiet. Feels like you are...

Guests who return to the hotel and recommend it to other travelers are our best source of advertisement...BUT more important is the positive comments confirm to staff that they are achieving their goal of satisfying the travel needs of our guests. The hotel is unique--of the 54 employees 43 belong to 5 families. The average length of employment tenure is 13.5 years. The hotel represents more to them than just a place of work -- they find great pleasure in providing quality affordable accommodations to our guests -- we may be a 2 star property on some rating sheets; however, we strive to fulfill a 4 star level of service and complimentary amenities. A 24 hr. Denny's Restaurant that adjoins the hotel provides for the food needs of late and early arriving guests.

Stayed at the Travelodge because of a missed flight connection. The hotel is very close to the airport and even though I arrived at LAX at 3am - the shuttle showed up in less than 20 minutes.
The staff was very friendly and got me a nice big room.
But don't expect anything fancy...everything is very basic but clean. The hotel has a lush garden with a pretty pool in the center.
If you have the extra time, take the line 6 bus to Curver City Westfield Mall. The bus leaves right in front of the hotel and brings you in 30 minutes to some great shopping for $1.
Overall, the Travelodge is a convenient place with good value for a short stay.

Thank you for submitting your review. The metro service is inexpensive with a bus stop within a minute walk of the hotel. Car rental agencies are either within walking distance or the hotel shuttle will transport you there. We recommend that if you are arriving in Los Angeles by plane and are staying overnight with us, call for the hotel shuttle as the rental car agencies are all located outside of the terminal area. You can check in the hotel; dispatch your luggage to your room and then go to the rental agency without having the hassle of carrying your luggage on and off shuttles to your rental car. Based on the reservation site we are either a 2, 2.5, or 3 star property and we strive to fulfill 5 star guest services at an affordable price.

Stayed here for 3 nights, the price was superb. This hotel was probably built in the 60's. Everything looks tired including the TV and the heater. The heater was probably nearing the end of its life as it's not heating up the room properly. Breakfast is good. Pool is great, we did took a plunge. The pool is outside our room and it is not heated. The landscaping is awesome. There's a free shuttle to airport. Denny's is a few steps away (their shrimp was so small, quite unbecoming for an American dishes) and there's a Taco Bell a few blocks away. The parking is behind the hotel and it's free. Car rental is like 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Overall, it's more that what we bargain for. Will stay here again if we visit Lax another time.

The staff and management appreciate that even though your description of the hotel was "tired" you identfied the hotel as a "Great Accommodation near LAX" and you would stay with us again. What is in a definition...the hotel is of a different generation for which the staff and management take special pride in being able to sustain her history. All the televisions are 3 months old 32 inch flat screen. Room heating -- Southern California's mild climate helps balance the challenges of traffic for those of us who live here. Consequently, with a constant temperature between 78 and 70, the need for cooling and heating is minimal. The unusual event of a cold or hot day may result in a guest finding the heating or cooling to be insufficient. The pool is heated to 70 degrees during the day.

Great location of you need a short stay lay over to get a few hours sleep. I think they specialize in short stays and do it very well. The hotel is no architectural master piece, probably built in the 60's but its very clean, well priced and run like a well oiled machine

Thank you for submitting a review of your recent stay. Our convenient location to Los Angeles International Airport has defined the services we provide guests. The two storey hotel is in a tropical setting that hopefully provides for our guests an opportunity to easy the stresses of air travel. We are a step back in time to the architecture of the fifties...so for the time you are with us you may experience a nostalgic moment of Hollywood history.
We appreciate your comment that we operate "like a well oiled machine"...personable and friendly staff--clean rooms--and making sure your transport between the airport and the hotel is courteous and punctual.

We would like to put 'superb for the price' in the scores - this hotel has loads of character, is quirky and prettily landscaped. The room was a good size, maybe decoration a bit tired and monocoloured (brown!) but perfectly clean, with an excellent bathroom. We had a room with interconnecting door which had a slight, very slight, gap, enough to hear the people next door but from about 10pm until we left the next morning they were silent - but that would have been a problem with inconsiderate neighbours. There is a complimentary airport shuttle bus but you have to ring for it, and complimentary 'continental' breakfast, but we went to Denny's next door for our first US breakfast this trip. Overall - we would certainly go back, maybe ask for a room without a connecting door. The hotel is close to the airport and is on a main road - but the road is well-disguised by the landscaping. The pool is a good length, we didn't have time to try it but would have liked to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't have an interconnecting door

On behalf of the staff and management, thank you for submitting your review. The hotel team appreciated your comment -- "...loads of character, is quirky and prettily landscaped."
Thank you for commenting on the noise coming from the interconnecting door. The issue has been reported to maintenance.
Carpet is being changed in guest rooms to a blue or green so hopefully the monotone brown will give way to a little more pizazz.

The Travelodge is very close to LAX and as a result the rooms are noisy with aircraft passing overhead all day and night.
That however is the only negative thing about the hotel.
The staff are friendly and efficient and there is a well stocked shop. The rooms are large and comfortable with views over the pool.
Parking is free and convenient if a little limited.
Denny’s restaurant is next door and open 24/7. Again staff and food there are excellent. There is also a Sizzlers within a mile of the hotel.
Well placed for car rental and a regular bus service and metro link.
I would stay there again.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms may be quieter.

The staff and management appreciate your having taken time to submit your review. For a person who wants to be close to the airport, we strive to provide an affordable and unique option for them. With pride we say that while we may be rated by 3rd party sites as 2 stars, we exceed the complimentary services provided by many 3 and 4 star hotels on the boulevard. We appreciate our guests for having chosen to stay with us and strive to show it by providing them with the best in service. Noise--being within 3 minutes of the airport can result in air traffic noise. However, we have double paned glass; roof insulation, and sound proofing around guest room doors so noise is minimized.
