“Mix of good and not so good”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Convenient Shuttle to and from LAX is the best thing, just like others said. Staff was helpful. Drop off and pick up area is NOT good so if you have a big old SUV to deal with, this might not be the place for you.

The good -- staff, location by airport, shuttle, free breakfast that was pretty good. (Worth about $10 all in.) Price is OK. The rooms are pretty new with decent TV, small bathroom, OK beds

The not so good -- slow elevators, funky parking, sketchy neighborhood at night, HARD pillows, run down hallways and carpet. The tub and shower worked poorly (plumbing loose).

Because this place is a decent value for the area, it is probably going to be full a lot like it was for my stay. This means lots of tourists, football fans, odd-ball conventions, etc.

If you want something more upscale in the area, there is a Holiday Inn very close and a Marriott just a block away on the other side of the blvd.

Room Tip: I was on top floor but on Century, which was loud. Perhaps ask for other side of hotel.

My wife and I have stayed at the La Quinta LAX several times on our way home from visiting California. Service is excellent, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the complimentary breakfast is nice (kind of standard, but nice), and the complimentary shuttle to the airport runs fairly frequently (takes about 10 minutes to get to LAX if traffic is minimal). Overall a good place to stay if you want to overnight it close to the airport.

I think the location is good. You got McDonald next to the hotel, subway across the street, and the gas station or store nearby. Free shuttle bus from LAX, free breakfast and wifi. However, the room next to the street is drawback, you can hear the car or moto passing by very clearly at the midnight. Remerber to ask for the room at he backside IOC the hotel.

We stayed in La Quinta LAX, LA, for 2 nights during early October 2012.
These two nights were our last days in the states before flew back home.
So I wanted to stay at a hotel that:
- does have free shuttle service to airport
- not too far from the airport
- Close enough to the train station to get to downtown / Holliwood etc..
- 3~4 star rating facilities (budget hotel but not too scary)

We bought a deal from web for this hotel which was less than 90/night per room and thought it was a ok deal.
We stayed in a Studio Suite on the 10th floor.

In the end, it was perfect for our purpose, which was just resting our tired bodies after sightseeing all day. I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who are looking for close proximity to airport and basic facility with good service.

Pro:
1. Service was excellent. All of the staff were very helpful with any questions and request.
2. Easy check-in
3. Free shuttle service from/to LAX every 10~15 minutes (of course with small amount of tip to the driver).
4. Free storage service if your flight is late in the evening.
5. Free breakfast.

Cons:
1. Aged facilities (lift, bathroom, and room in general). Not a big deal for us though.
2. No vending machine. Means you have to walk to MacDonalds just next door to the hotel. Not a big deal for us either.
3. Not much choice of eating places around. MacDonalds, Subway and Taco Bell, that is it. (or is that enough!!).

If you are looking for something fancy and new, you may be a little disappointed. Not knowing what I can expect from the hotel, I was too, to be honest. But it was good basic stay with kind staff and good service.
It worked for us!

Very close to LAX with a shuttle that runs every 15 minutes. Takes less than 10 minutes to get to the airport on the shuttle. Good free breakfast. Comfy beds and rooms overall good even though they have older/outdated looking furniture in them. The hotel looks like it was just repainted to make it look better, but the colors are kind of blah... yellows, lime green and taupes. Overall, it's an ok place to stay but best if you just need a place for a quick overnight stay near LAX.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a room on the quiet side facing the Holiday Inn behind it vs. on the main street to LAX...

Average hotel. The dinner meal is not recommended. I am happy that I did not pay full price, but paid partially with reward points and not full cost. The sleep condtions are average at best. The shuttle service to LAX was the best part of the hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights the last one being part of a tour.
Very convenient from the airport with the free shuttle and we had no desire for a big night out in LA so its location didn't matter.
You can book tours from reception which we did for Universal and we also took the cheap shuttle to Manhattan beach which was very easy.
The rooms were very clean and quite spacious with good AC. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate and the bar and restaurant were there if you wanted them though quite basic.
The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in customer service when our first nights booking had not materialised from the tour company.

Only negative was that the lifts were not very reliable and they should really sort that out
