Hotel's Favourite
We've stayed here before and returned because of the location and clean, nice hotel. We were able to walk to the Cathedral and Angel Flight (about 1 mile). Sadly, many Chinatown businesses are shut down. The hotel's local shops area all boarded up. I hope people will stay here and help honor and revive economy in this area.

Room was on small side of Best Western rooms I have stayed. Repair problem. The smoke detector was lying on the ground. Front desk gave me 30 minutes of extra check out time when I asked for 1 hour. This was so as not to inconvenience the cleaning ladies. There was an over $18 parking fee added on to my room rate (am a Platinum Rewards cutomer.) First time this was done in my decades long relationship with Best Western. This was not calculated in the online web materials.

Response from Rick Johnson, Guest Services / Front Office at Best Western Plus Dragon Gate Inn
Responded 7 Jul 2022
Hello Kdeetz: Sorry you thought our rooms were small. They are actually bigger than most rooms in Downtown Los Angeles. Just like all major cities, parking is a premium. All properties charge for parking. We don't have a late check out for the maids. We have a late check out because we are sold out all the time and need the time to clean the rooms to get them ready for the next customer. Please always tell the front desk at check in that you will need a later check out so they can arrange the rooms accordingly. Regards, Best Western Plus Dragon Gate Inn

We stayed in the ADA room and there was plenty of space to move around. Although there is free parking, no one displayed a handicap placard, so I was forced to park in the aisle way. Also there doesn't seem to be 1:1 parking space for all the guests. I was disappointed at all the people smoking in front of their rooms, which made our room smell like smoke. The room was clean and comfortable. We would like to come back after the cafe and gym are finished with their remodel. It would be nice if the hotel made the smoking section outside of the hotel rather than the atrium. I am sure it would make a cleaner environment for all.

I stayed here recently and was quite surprised. The staff was kind and accommodating, room was spacious, and the complimentary breakfast was pretty good. Definitely a prime location, being a walk away from all the food Chinatown has to offer. I would stay here again the next time I’m visiting LA!

I had a fantastic stay at the Dragon Gate Inn. The staff was very accommodating, breakfast was delicious, and room was spotless. Easy in and out of the garage. I'll be staying here again on my next visit.

Liars, combative, makes promises and does not deliver. Working on a film and a cast member was staying at the hotel. He secured the reservation on his own and I (in the production office) called to change the card info on file so I would be charged. I called several times as the front desk person was busy “with customers” and asked me to call back later. I was finally able to make the change over the phone on a Friday night days before the cast member was to check in. I asked if I needed to come in and was told no. Fast forward to Monday where I’m told the cast member was given a hard time because of the card change. I needed to call and speak with the manager. I called at 3:45 and was told the manager is the only person who could help me and she wasn’t going to be in until tomorrow... this saga is too long to write but to sum it up I WILL NEVER, EVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL OR BOOK IT FOR ANYONE!

Dear JasminH9: Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey and your feedback is appreciated. With regard to any credit card payment, the physical card and cardholder must be present at check-in. In lieu of the physical card and cardholder’s presence, we require a completed Credit Card Authorization form executed by the cardholder, along with a copy of the government-issued identification. Any front desk team member can provide the form to a requesting party and finalize the payment process once the completed authorization form is received. Due to the prevalence of credit card fraud, we are required to adhere to this procedure. Sincerely, Best Western Plus Dragon Gate Inn

Convenient and clean hotel and good parking but did not care for paying $15 per night for parking. The parking attendant was superb. The front desk clerks were also very helpful. The rooms were very clean the bed was a little hard.

I stayed here for a conference. We booked late and everything was sold out. The hotel was clean and the location worked well. We had to drive/Uber to the convention center but overall it never took too long. Free breakfast in the morning.
