The hotel is dirty. Located in a shady part of town. Parking is a challenge

Thanks for taking your time in reviewing our hotel. We appreciate any feedback we can get. We apologize for the difficulties finding parking. We have 3 parking lots. If you ever have trouble finding parking, the front desk staff is more than willing to help. We are located 1 mile east top the airport which is not the the most luxurious part of Los Angeles but we have 24 hour security to ensure the safety of our guests. People feel our hotel is old or dirty because we have a 1950 retro architecture style. The older 1950’s theme is not for everyone and some guest may feel that our hotel is outdated. This is not the case as our hotel and grounds are constantly being renovated and maintained. While some guests see the beauty, charge & unique character of our location, others may feel it simply is old. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we feel that many of our guests come back because they see the beauty in our location. We are not the cookie cutout hotel, we are different, unique & one of a kind.

Lovely old Hollywood style hotel/motel near LAX.

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: Close to the airport, affordable, pet friendly, great fountains and gardens.
Cons: There was an overnight shuttle bus driver who was very rude. Also fix the locks on doors of the pet friendly rooms.
Location: Close to LAX that's what I wanted, I wasn't interested in things to do in the area as I was moving from LA to Mexico.
Some doors a bit loud to get into and need to be slammed to shut, not good in the middle of the night! A/C was freezing making the tile floor freezing too. Otherwise a pleasant stay.

I hope the positives out weigh the negatives and you can return to our hotel.

Thank you very much for your recent stay with us and for taking the time to review our property. We know that Location is one of the main things travelers look at when choosing a hotel. Our location is top notch by being only 1 mile east of LAX and 1/2 mile from all major rental car agencies. 4 of these rental car agencies are within walking distance. We believe our hotel offers an excellent value compared to some of our high rise neighbors. Our complimentary breakfast is leaps and bounds above other properties in the same price range and we cannot be compared to high rise properties where guests pay 3 times the cost. We offer guests the customary items of coffee, juice, tea, cereal, bread, fresh fruit, and we add two hot items, waffles & sausages. On site amenities include a 24 hour Denny’s diner, on-site guest laundry facilities for washing/drying, heated Jr. Olympic size pool, small workout facility & 24 hour computer station. When you compare our property to others and notice the free amenities, you will see that our property is one of the best values In the LAX area.

Why we had to pay for parking?

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: The continental breakfast and pool.
Cons: I might come back if parking could be improved, no dogs. Morning breakfast should be extended to 10:00 every day. And you get Queen size beds not full
Location: There aren't may stores or Walgreens or pharmacy around. You have to walk 3 or 4 miles to go get anything to drink.
I first don't understand why we had to pay for parking when we didn't have a lot, I had to park in the alley with no security. Also I didn't know the hotel allowed dogs in same section where we were staying and me and my daughter were terrified of dogs. If I knew this we would have never stayed at your hotel. The cleaning people never cleaned under the bed or in corners were the lamps were lots of crumbs were there. Why we didn't have a microwave in our room we always had to leave room to warm our food in laundry room? You all had 1/2 showers and no bathtubs why? I like full baths with tub. The continental breakfast was pretty good and the pool was nice and clean. I also was told they had Queen size beds but the beds were full size.

Do in a pinch

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Staff was friendly. Decent continental breakfast. Landscaping was beautiful. Excessive road noise and paper thin walls made it difficult to get a good nights sleep. They charged $10 for parking. No Elevators to get your luggage to the second floor. Fitness center smelled horrible

Thanks for taking your time in reviewing our hotel. We appreciate any comments about our landscaping and gardening. Our expanded continental breakfast offers the typical continental items with the twist of Waffles, Hard-Boiled Eggs & Sausages. Parking cost $11 but it is no where near the price of neighboring hotels. There is not lift but we do have bellmen that are ready to assist you. We hope that when traveling through the LAX area again that you will choose to stay with us.

OLD CHARM

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: nice family pool area. cleaning staff were on the ball
Cons: more organized checkin. the rooms definately need a makeover
Location: busy street, nothing around buy other hotels. cloest cvs or grocery stores at least 30 min walking distance.
an average 60's stye hotel which hosts a nice pool area. on a busy intersection with the roar of consistent plane noise. rooms are dated where the only reason i stayed is for a balcony room that overlooks the pool. otherwise, never would be a likely choice.

Thanks for taking your time in reviewing our hotel. We appreciate any feedback we can get. We take criticism very importantly and will make adjustments as needed. The hotel is near the airport meaning we do get noise from planes and near by construction. We do offer earplugs to help reduce the noise. Our 1950's architecture give guest that retro feel while our rooms provide that modern twist. All rooms come equipped with a refrigerator at no charge, single cup coffee maker, flat screen TV's and much more. The older 1950’s theme is not for everyone and some guest may feel that our hotel is outdated. This is not the case as our hotel and grounds are constantly being renovated and maintained. We are located 1 mile east of the airport and 1/2 mile from all major rental car agencies. 2 shopping malls can be found less than a 30 minute drive or bus ride away. A beautiful California sunset is less than a 15 minute drive away from our property. We hope that you enjoyed your stay despite this downside & will choose to stay with us again.
