My partner and I stayed at Comfort Inn Cockatoo last week, and were very pleased with the stay. After a 13 hour flight from Australia the hotel kindly accommodated our luggage while we went to Disneyland for the day before checking in, and provided a solid, consistent (if rattly!) shuttle service to and from LAX. The shuttle driver we had, Oscar, gave some great tips about LA itself and he represented the hotel very well.
The king bed we had was excellent and very, very comfortable. The breakfast had good variety, ranging from waffles to hard boiled eggs, yoghurt, cereal, toast, etc. There are some take out restaurants nearby as well. WiFi generally was very solid, though prone to some slowness at peak times. The bathroom was solid, and the single person whirlpool jet bath was heaven after a very long flight and a day at Disneyland! The pool was very clean and well maintained. There was a PC in the lobby to print out documentation if needed, as well as cold filtered water (a good thing for those that don't like the taste of chemicals in their water!). Laundry facilities were more than adequate.
Be aware that there is no room safe to store your valuables, and perhaps this could be looked at in future.
Overall, a great first experience with a Comfort Inn in the US, and we will certainly be back again if we want to stay near LAX. For those unfamiliar with LA, it's about 20+ mins drive to downtown.
Tip: When we took an Uber vehicle to Dodgers Stadium (just a little past downtown) in peak hour it cost us nearly $40 (cheaper than a taxi) and about 75 mins... The return trip was about 25 mins.
