I have never stayed in a Best Western Plus, so I didn't know what to expect. I have, however, stayed in a Best Western on road trips, so did not expect much. Well...if this hotel is representative of all Best Western Plus hotels, I would be more than happy to stay at another one!
This was an all suite hotel, which was nice. The suite part of the hotel contained a kitchenette with a minifridge (a nice new one that could fit a full sized gallon of milk if needed), a microwave, a sink and some cabinets. As I was staying here for 3 days due to a fumigation of my apartment, this kitchenette was a lifesaver! There was also a nice desk and chair with a port to connect to internet.
Breakfast was included, and had some eggs, hashbrowns, bacon and do it yourself waffles and cereal. It did not change from day to day and there was canned fruit and not fresh fruit. I would say that it is better than your usual roadside motel breakfast, but not as good as an Embassy Suites breakfast. I got tired of it after the first day. Also, the fact that it ended at 9am, made it a bit difficult since I like to sleep in.
Parking is complimentary and plentiful. The location is a nice one, close to the Del Amo mall, gas stations and lots of places to eat at.
Room was clean and bed was comfy. Tons of pillows. Only draw back was that the bathroom did not have a tub, it was a standing shower only. I did like the sink area which was outside of the bathroom.
For tourists, I wouldn't pick this location for the typical LA sightseeing as it is far away from Hollywood. However, if you just want to hit the beach, it is not too far away, about a 5-10 min. drive.
Staff was nice. Check-in was quick and efficient.
I would stay here again if I needed to. The only deductions are: no pool, thin walls, slow elevator.
