“A memorable stay at the Best Western Inn, Marina Del Ray LA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

During our recent trip to LA, California we were pleasantly surprised with the warm hospitality and courteous service at the Best Western Inn . From the moment we stepped into the hotel till the time we left we were greeted and helped by all the staff, the front desk, the housekeeping staff and the wonderful people who run the breakfast area.We were happy to see how friendly the staff was, smiling , asking us if we needed anything, attending to our needs as soon as we called. We plan to visit again and stay here on our next trip.Thank you to all the hotel staff for a great stay.
By the way the breakfast here is very popular, with lots of options and choices. We are looking forward to the next time. We wish the dining room was a bit bigger, it gets crowded around 8-9am .Still its all worth it .This is our first time at a Best western, but it won't be our last. We will reccomend this place to our family and friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with 2 double beds if there are more than 2 people, or a family with a kid or two. T...

Stayed in this hotle for the first time and liked it very much. Our room was upgraded due to the original room being on the road side of the hotl and noisy. They upgraded us with no charge to a Quenn mini suite which we eneded up liking very much. Staff was friendly and the second floor pool and outdoor area is very charming. The hotle is close to Venice Beach which was convenient.

Great location on a lovely palm-lined boulevard and close to restaurants, the beach, a Walgreen's, bus stops, etc. The room was actually better than I expected (comfy beds!) and I really appreciated the in-room microwave. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and made you feel at home. Free breakfast was also great, though it does get crowded.

The only problems we had were with our key-cards, which kept malfunctioning and wouldn't unlock our room. However staff were always super helpful with fixing this, so I give them credit for that.

Overall we had a great stay at this hotel! Definitely a nice place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. :)

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated
and well maintained. The property is well maintained. Situated near all Marina activities with very good restaurants within one block and cool shopping is a very short walk. The pool is very little and is not for swimming but for dipping to keep cool on hot days. Nice fire pit and lounge area for conversations at night. First floor covered parking, but get there early or you may not get a space.

The nicest hotel staff I've ever encountered! Loved the one bedroom suite, very convenient and clean. Loved the seating area with water and fire features. The kids loved the pool. Very good complimentary breakfast. I loved the computers and printers in lobby. They made it possible to print our boarding passes before going to the airport. Definitely exceeded our expectations! Thank you!

This hotel was a great location- a short walk to the beach and lots of great restaruants. It was great for the price- free parking, free internet, free breakfast- all a plus. Also large rooms with a sitting area/TV along with a seperate bedroom and bathroom. Mini fridge and microwave- which I found on the last night because they were hidden!

The only downside I would say would be that the hotel is a bit dated and small. The air conditioning in my room worked, but not well- I had it turned down pretty low and felt like it was never cool enough! The breakfast are gets really crowded so go early if you want a place to sit and to ensure they aren't out of things (like cereal and yogurt- they were one weekday morning when i went at 830.) Also the pool/tub is TINY so if you are looking to hang out by it, it is small and crowded with kids. Although, there is a nice sitting area just outside of the pool that have nice chaise lounges and places to sit in the sun or shade! The staff was always very friendly and helpful. Overall good stay! Wouldn't have stayed here for a vacation- but for work it was great.
