I recently spent a week in Southern California and spent my first and last nights at this hotel since it is close to LAX. I enjoyed both stays and will definitely return the next time in LA.
Every employee I encountered was friendly and efficient. Check-in/Check-Out was very easy.
The rooms are large, clean, and nicely furnished. There is plenty of lighting and a high-quality air conditioner. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The rooms have a fridge and a microwave. The Wi-Fi worked fine as did the flat screen TV.
Although I didn't swim in the pool, it looked very nice. The pool area was clean and the water was very clear.
The free breakfast had the usual options and was well-stocked.
The hotel shares a gated parking garage with the hotel next door, so you don't have to worry about finding street parking. It is free to park in the garage.
Finally, I'll discuss the neighborhood because a lot of previous posters have commented on it. This hotel is definitely not in the "ghetto." Yes, it's a working class neighborhood. Yes, it does have a diverse population. I'll admit it doesn't look like Beverly Hills, but I never felt unsafe. I walked down the street to eat dinner and had no problems. If you use common sense (like you should in any large metropolitan area) you will be fine.
Overall, this should definitely be an option for anyone looking for a hotel in the LAX area.
Last note: The hotel was in the process of installing new carpet in the hallways during my first stay. I got to see the old carpet and the new carpet and it made a HUGE difference. The old carpet was definitely showing wear. The new carpet is modern and looks great. Kudos to the management on that decision.
