“35 minute wait for shuttle bus. Not on.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

We wanted a hotel near LAX. Well this hotel is close, but we waited 35 minutes for their shuttle to appear, as the shuttles for the other hotels regularly cleared the waiting passengers. The hotel is not on the free airport hotel phone line, though the other LAX Travelodge is, but we rang twice and the hotel knew we were waiting.
We paid 99 dollars for a room which was dated and shabby, and which looked out at a blank wall. There is no lift to the second floor. The breakfast was OK but there was a crush of customers and finding an empty table was difficult. The gardens are pretty, but hardly extensive.

Regrettably any wait for a hotel shuttle is a negative experience after a long and tiring flight. We apologize for the delay in service.
A study of reviews reveals when the initial introduction to our hotel is negative, then every instance that supports the original encounter is listed. Continental breakfast... no mention of quality of items and availability but only the crush of guests; guest room...not the update room features but a subjective description using the work "shabby"; gardens ... "but hardly extensive" rather than the beautiful landscaping...water features, lighting, and variety of tropical plants that many reviews praise. The websites includes the instructions regarding accessing the hotel shuttle--need to call the hotel with the phone number provided. We are a small hotel and are allocated ONLY two shuttle by the LAX Airport so we cannot circle the terminals like the hotels with 300 to 1250 guests rooms that enables them to operate a large shuttle fleet.. The flight of stairs without an elevator...there is staff available to assist with carrying luggage without the expectation of a tip.

Very convenient for airport. However that meant planes could be heard throughout the night!
Shuttle bus a bonus. Breakfast more than enough. Room a little dated and a VERY strong smell of disinfectant as we walked in. However, in spite of this (because of this!) It was immaculately clean & once we made a coffee the smell of the coffee filled the room. Most staff very pleasant.

Thank you for submitting a review and the 4 star rating you gave the hotel. Cleanliness is a top priority for the hotel and we do apologize if we may go a little overboard but choose to error on the side of being germ free.
Yes, when you are within 3 to 5 minutes of the terminals for the 2nd busiest airport in the United States, there is air tariff noise. The hotel does provide ear plugs. Due to flight patterns even staying several miles away does not eliminate the noise of airplanes landing or taking off.

Arrived in LAX- 6 hours late, was very nice to have the Hotel Shuttle to take us to the Hotel, without having to find out how to get to the Hotel. The Room was amazing- better than I expected and the Breakfast was basic but still enough to keep me going. You can hear in the distance planes taking off and landing, but after a while you get use to the sound.

Overall a pleasant night before travelling around, Los Angeles.

Recommend for anyone arriving from the airport or going to the airport.

Thank you for submitting a review of your stay with us...and welcome to Southern California. The LAX Airport has been defined as the hub of the wheel for tourist sites. You can reach the beaches in a couple of minutes and all major tourist attractions are within 30 to 45 minutes of the airport hotel complex. Tours leave three times a day from the hotel lobby. Then there is the Ocean Express that provides the 20 minute transit to the picturesque beach community of Manhattan Beach.

Convenient location with complimentary shuttle to LAX - drivers very friendly and helpful as were all staff we came across from front desk to cleaners to breakfast staff. Rooms very nice inside and ours were clean. Breakfast was a continental style but waffle machines available to use which the kids loved. Husband's sleep was disturbed by cars in car park behind, road noise and people trundling suitcases through at all hours BUT this an airport hotel so to be expected - they do give out free ear plugs at reception but I had brought my own. All in all excellent value.

Opportunities to provide value...the staff and management are constantly assessing what additional services can be provided our guests while maintaining moderately priced room rates. A recent addition is the computer center in the lobby that is available to guests at no charge...there is a time limitation. Another new feature is the animal topiaries that have been designed and fashioned by our own grounds staff. Guest rooms maintenance is a top priority and keeps our 4 man crew updating guest rooms every day.
Thank you for submitting a review and we appreciate the 4 star rating you gave us.

What! What a gem is the travelodge LAX! Free wifi - free shuttle to and from the airport. Free continental breakfast. Late checkout. Those small little touches made our stay here unforgettable.

The customer service was fantastic. Everyone was really helpful and accommodating.

Rooms are good, for a quick stop over in between departures I would recommend staying here!

It's noisy, being next to the highway and airport and with a continual hum of the air conditioner, but for the money it's well worth it. That's enough of the negatives, now for the positives. There is a free shuttle to and from the airport, we were told to ring after we had picked up our bags and we were ready to go. We did that, we received clear instruction where to wait and within about 2 minutes our shuttle was there. The driver was great, he loaded our heavy bags and told us about things in the area we may need or want to do. After 5 minutes we had arrived, the hotel itself is old and not very appealing from the street, but after checking in we were pleased with our room. We only wanted somewhere to stay for the day, our flight arrived in LA at 9.30am and our next flight to New York was not until 11.30pm, so with a 14 hour layover we didn't want to just sit at the airport. This place is perfect, there is a Dennys restaurant right next door where we had lunch and then we went back to our room for a shower and nap. The bathroom is small but efficient, the room itself was quite large and the bed was a king size and exceptionally comfortable with great pillows. The room was decorated quite nicely with a desk and writing paper and pen, lounge and flat screen TV and curtains that made the room quite dark to sleep during the day. All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Travelodge. There is no lift, we were on the first floor and needed to take our bags up the stairs, which was fine for us, I'd request ground floor if this was s problem.

Thank you for submitting a review of your stay with us. I concur that the view of the hotel from the street is not very inviting. The fifties architectural style initially may create a moment of uncertainty as to what lies within. Yes, a pleasant surprise awaits with the tropical gardens setting;; water features; flora and fauna. We are pleased that you found the quest rooms to be restful with an appealing décor. Denny's Restaurant/Lounge that adjoins the hotel is a plus -- now you can bring a beer or wine from the lounge to your room.

The hotel service from the shuttle to the breakfast to the room and everything included, was great. Delivered as promised, no hood-winking. The vicinity to public transport is a big plus to this location overall. Easily accessible to bus stops, rental car lots, restaurants like McDonalds and Del Taco and Carls Jnr are within walking distance and Denny's Diner is located right beside which also offers superb dishes at reasonable prices.If you looking for super cheap, go to McDonalds and consume their dollar menu, cant get anything cheaper than that.
Room condition was OK considering the hotel is quite old itself. The bed was quite comfortable and the pillows as required. The linen is done everyday and room cleaning service is done everyday as well so there is always a fresh supply of towels and bed linen. The bathroom and washroom facilities albeit quite small but are clean and neat and maintained daily by the cleaning crew. TV's are located in the rooms with free to air channels to choose from or pay to view movie and other channels selections is also quite good source to pass time if you are up to it.
Wifi service is another huge advantage- free and the speeds are quite good as well.
Breakfast is served free daily in the mornings till 9am. Nothing spectacular but the stuff is enough and very suitably filling with fresh bread, cereals, pancakes, fruits, juices and hot chocolate amongst other things which are nothing less than welcoming in the chilly morning in L.A.
Absolutely loved our stay made even more pleasant by the very helpful and polite staff at the front desk and those who we saw around. One thing which I found lacking was the lack of activities that could be gotten off the front desk. The only tour available was from the Ocean Express to the Manhattan Beach - that itself was a remarkable trip to the beach and nearby shopping centers and plaza. Apart from that, you are all on your own making your around L.A.So if they look into organizing some more of those kinds of tours, pretty sure the location will be a greater hit. They did offer to call up to hook us up to Starline but they all require at least 24 hours notice which is not possible if you are on a short stay.
Shuttles are on time maybe plus or minus a few minutes for pickup as they have to drive from the hotel to the airport but if you are on time at the reception they usually depart religiously on their scheduled trips to the airport for dropping off.

Room Tip: Rooms away from pool area are secluded and hence quieter and more peaceful. Just check the A/C units...

Thank you for your review. I have shared it with the front desk staff as there are excursions available from Starline and V.I.P. Tours that pick-up daily. Tickets can be purchased in the morning for tours that day. Yes, the Ocean Express to Manhattan Beach and two malls is excellent--especially as Manhattan Beach is not on the tourist map and is a wonderful unspoiled coastal community.
Many guests comment on the comfort of the pillow top mattress and array of pillows. Bathrooms may be dated but the lighting, mirror, hair dryer, counter, and flooring are all updated--shower is larger and the current upgrade is adding a light to the interior of the them. We appreciate your comments regarding the daily cleaning.
Public transport is very close by and easy to access. There are restaurant choices in the area and the hotel will shuttle you to many of them.
Wi-Fi is a plus and generally with good speed..
