“Looked sketchy, but was just fine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2008

While en route to Northern California, we spent a night in this motel. My wife was leery with its location judging by its proximity to East LA and her worries intensified as the freeway exit was covered with graffiti, and the hotel was right next to a casino with several single men with tattoos walking around. I had to admit that seeing a security guard in the lobby of a Comfort Inn was a bit unusual, but fortunately things got better from there.

The clerk was friendly and quickly got us checked in to a quiet room, not facing the street. Although the casino was busy and the parking lot appeared full, there was plenty of parking behind the motel and close to the stairs (don't know if there's an elevator).

Room was quiet, clean and everything worked. Had microwave and fridge, two TVs and well-functioning heater/AC. Bed was okay. Furniture pretty new and the carpet didn't seem gross.

Lots of water pressure and no lack of hot water. We made sure not to leave anything visible inside the car for the night, and there were no problems the next morning. Didn't have breakfast at the hotel but at McDonalds close by. This place works fine if you don't plan to spend your vacation in the hotel room, but just need a comfortable place to sleep and recharge.

The Comfort Inn in Bells Gardens is a former Ramada Limited. The Ramada exterior sign was still up, but covered by a Comfort banner. While the room was furnished nicely, the traffic noise outside was horrible. Even with the air conditioner and bathroom fan and ear plugs, the noise was deafening. Make sure you get a room away from the main road or you will not get any sleep. The breakfast the next morning was very limited and basically thrown out (what you would expect from an Econo Lodge). I will not be staying at this location again.

I love tis hotel! The rooms are great and the management and the service is excellent! The people are nice and friendly. Most important;y, I have not had a problem in the rooms. Although it mightbe a concern for some people that this hotel is near a casino, from my experience I can tell you I have not had a problem from any "gamblers". Matter of fact, I always saw families around in the morning at breakfast. One of the front desk person actually told me they are making an effort to keep the gamblers out and they are not associated wth the casino at all which I found impressive.

Overall, I would always stay here and its a great hotel period.
