“Plug-in internet.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The property of the hotel is a bit confusing. You definitely need a map to find your room, especially if it is in the back 40. I could hear people walking outside and those that booked in late, like me, had a hard time being quiet. There was no wifi in the room, only a plug-in internet connection. Not so good for my MacBook Air and iPad and iPhone. The room was pleasant, but there was a bright light outside my window that took some time to get used to. You definitely have to be early to catch the shuttle to the airport too. As far as value for your money - you get what you pay for. Would I stay here again? Not sure.

Room Tip: Inexpensive for a quick "sleep-over" before your flight.

Regrettably there was a misunderstanding with the guest regarding Wi-Fi access. The hotel has free Wi-Fi--accessed by a password. There is also a plug-in receptacle that can be used for conference calling. There can be up to 135 guests in the hotel using the internet. The system was just updated to improve access speed.
Early shuttle...the airport shuttle departs on the hour and half hour 24 hrs. a day..between 6 and 10 a.m., there are two shuttles...same in the evening. The hotel requests that you are in the shuttle loading area 10 minutes prior to departure.
What you receive in return for your room rate is a clean and attractive accommodation as described by this reviewer...AND....free Wi-Fi; complimentary shuttle service; free continental breakfast (fruit and Danish available if you check-out before 6 a.m.) and free parking.

Good hotel, great location for airport we had a car with Alamo and they gave us transport back to the hotel after we dropped off the car, don't be tempted to walk back in the dark, lovely pool, staff ok, breakfast room small but food OK, Bar OK, but limited choice of food unless you like fast food. I'm a light sllper & slept very well better than expected.

Thank you for submitting your review. The hotel does provide complimentary pick-up and drop-off service for the car rental sites. We recommend that our guests who may be renting a car first come to the hotel from the airport. They can be checked into their room; deposit their luggage and then have a shuttle driver take them to the car rental agency.
The hotel also provides shuttle service to area restaurants. Whatever food variety you prefer, there is a "neighborhood" restaurant that provides it. If you want a more gourmet meal in a exlusive setting, then the hotel drivers will take you to area hotels with their in house restaurants. Denny's 24 hr. Restaurant adjoins the hotel and is very popular with our guests.

We had two rooms for an overnight. The shuttle came early and since we were not waiting for it (we got there 5 mins later at the time we said we would be there) it left and didnt bother to make another round or call and let us know. 1 hour later with two kids in the median at LAX it showed up with no apology. When we checked in and my husband asked for a luggage cart or something, the person merely pointed to where it was and continued hanging out. The room was not well marked with signs to find and there were no elevators to the second floor. No one helped or even offered even though there were at least ten employees that we passed. The room was gross and run down and the heater was incredibly noisy and did not work well. We had no desire to stay there so we inquired about where to eat.. The parking lot was torn up and there was not an easy access to the Denny's next door. We eventually decided to take the trolley to a beach area. While waiting for the trolley, some family members called to tell us that there were open rooms for a better price at the nicer hotels down the road. I called to see if they would allow us to leave and go to another hotel and they told me no that I could pay the day rate (for the whole hour we had been checked in). I told her how awful the conditions were and she said "well you didnt say that when you checked in" (how would I have known and where were we going to go???). I wrote a complaint to the corporate office and still have not heard a word in over two weeks since I did. I notice that the responses on here are full of excuses and nasty responses to those who don't like the hotel, so I don't expect any sort of kind response to this posting. Save yourself the headache - the others in the area are priced almost the same if you call and ask.

In previous reviews where a guest has been disappointed about some aspect of their stay, we, the hotel staff, attempt to find solutions to an issue -- noisy A/C unit or room disinfectant odor. Then there are the negative reviews that result from a guest not having a specific request granted.
I was involved with the guest who submitted this review. The young couple did miss the shuttle which resulted in a 40 minutes airport wait...definitely not a pleasant experince. If you read other reviews, the shuttle service receives very positive comments. Over 34 trips a day with 200 guests transported in and out of the airport. Considerating the construction being done at the airport that disrupts daily the traffic flow, it is surprising that more guests do not experience long waits.
The family arrived...two children under 5. They had reserved the family room which is identified as being on the second floor...website and lobby sign state no elevator,. Yes, guests are referred to luggage carts just outside the door of the lobby. Ten staff on grounds -- remember we are a small hotel...there may be one or two grounds staff and the occasional housekeeper. Assistance is available yet probably with young parents who did not ask for assistance there did not appear to be a need.
After the guests were in the room for an hour, they came to the lobby and purchased bus tickets that would take them to Manhattan Beach. Approximately one hour later an outside call was received and a person who identified themselves with the name of the guest in the family room. They wanted to check out and transfer to another hotel. When an inquiry was made about thier luggage in the room, they said they would return later to get it. The "caller" was told they would be charged a day rate -- room would have to be serviced. The "caller" became very angry and used derogatory words--lobby is on video and voice recording taped. The "caller" hung up.,
Next day...an elderly lady came to the front desk and said that her room key had expired. When the key was checked, it was for the family room...no additional adult was registered in the room. As the conversation developed, the voice of the guest was recognized as that of the person who called the previous day...not the young couple who had occupied the room.
The family room recently was renovated...it includes a refrigerator and microwave. The room is popular with returning guests and stays constantly reserved.
The guests (or mysterious edlerly woman) was displeased because there would have been a day rate charge for the room if they were to check out on their return from the bus outing.
It is unfortunate when the review option is used as the vehicle to make negative comments that are solely the result of the hotel not being able to respond exactlly to a guest's request. The guest was given an option and chose not to accept it.

First let me say that you really GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!! This hotel was very inexpensive, however for my first stay at a Travelodge, this hotel was very disappointing to my family and I. The shower was enclosed and made me feel claustrophobic, the floor had so little padding that it felt as if I would fall through the floor at any given time, the room had a very unpleasant smell, the Heater/AC unit was extremely loud and rattled throughout the night, the sheets had an unpleasant smell and were very thin. Complimentary coffee maker was placed in the room but there were no water bottles in order to make the coffee!!! I did not expect a 5-star hotel, but at least it shouldn't have smelled or had a heater that barely worked in the middle of winter!!!! I will NEVER stay at another Travelodge and am very disappointed with these accommodations.

A guest's whose stay with us is less than satisfactory is always a disappointment to management and staff. AC units -- our normally 60 to 75 degree year around weather took an unusually hit from Mother Nature. With the temperature dipping into the high thrties and low forties, the heat pump AC units did encounter some issues. The hotel is currenlty engaged in a program in which the units are being upgraded.
Showers -- other guest reviews will comment on liking the large showers with good water pressure despite the Calfornia low flow water restrictions.
Sheets...towels all are equal to 3 and 4 star property requirements. The hotel uses the same linen service that the major Centurey Blvd., hotels utilize.
Bottle water--yes, the 3, 4, and 5 star properties provide bottle water in your room that you will need to purchase. I would say 99.9% of our guest use the tap water as they would in their home to make coffee.
Interesting...if you do not like a person in a famliy, then do you decide not to speak to any other family member.

Stayed overnight to catch my flight back to Australia next day. Perfect location. Great shuttle service to the airport. Free WiFi. Clean and professional staff. Catch the tour bus to Manhattan beach for a look around.

Thank you for your review. The staff and mangement always appreciate learning that we were able to fulfill a guest's lodging needs. The Travelodge appeals to travelers who prefer a two storey "Inn" to the high rise hotels that join us on Century Blvd., hotel row. The open corridors with walkways set in wonderfully landscaped gardens are a popular feature with our guests. Affordable price--clean, good mattress, flat screen TV with many channel selections, ample continental breakfast, free parking and Wi-Fi...AND an accommodating and informative staff.
Yes, the Ocean Express to Manhattan Beach is availalbe for travelers who want to do a little sightseeing.

I always chose the LAX Travelodge when in the area. This was a return visit, and as always...exactly what I expected. Friendly, efficient and good, at the most reasonable price in the entire area. Yes- it is an older property...but, you can park on the grounds ( FREE ! ), and the rooms are fine - not glamourous, but completely fine,....and you can get food ( of sorts) at the Denny's next door...in the middle of the night, if you want ! The plants all around the property remind me that there is still nature , despite the concrete city pervasive all around LAX ! The breakfast is adequate ( though I got there exactly 1 minute until 9 a.m. ( it is from 6-9 am ) and was told that it was over :-( Oh, well......I still had good shuttle service and proximity to airport is excellent. All in all, the best bargain.

Embarrassing and frustrating to have you denied admission to the breakfast room 1 minute prior to 9 a.m. The value of reviews is for management to learn where a staff person is compromising our overall good service with their inappropriate conduct.
We appreciate your returning to stay with us and for sharing with other potential guests your positive observations of the hotel. Yes, we do provide a very tiny space for nature to thrive within an area that is a conglomerate of high rise buildings and limited green space.

The hotal is located directly at a highly frequented street.
Sleeping impossible since the doors have a very bad sound insulation.
We stayed in December. The heating didnt work (only air condition
with heating option, that didnt work and was very noisy).

A guest who departs the hotel and is very disappointed in their stay is a regret experienced by staff and management. Sound proofing...we have implemented the sound proofing standards provided by the airport. There will be the occasional guest that will still heard outside noise. If you choose to stay within 3 minutes of the airport, there will be traffic and airport noise regardless of the hotel accommodations you select. If you need quiet and choose not to carry ear plugs, then you will need to locate a lodging facility 5 to 10 miles from the airport.
AC unt -- maintenance staff is available 24/7 to assist guests in setting their AC temperature...including regulation of the AC vents. The AC units are heat pump which means they are operated by a motor.
