4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

We chose this hotel based on location and an extremely reasonable nightly rate which was discounted to $68.00 for a four night stay. Due to a family saddness we had to return to LA after just traveled there two weeks early so our budget was important. After reviewing the Trip Advisor reviews we found it to be a clean hotel room, (non-smoking) The room with a queen size bed provided a desk, comfortable reading chair, apartment size refrigerator, an inroom safe, large bathroom. The television did not offer many channels, HBO offered but unable to have adequate visibility, no WiFi, toiletries limited to shampoo and conditioner and small bar soap. A small coffee pot was appreciated. A continental breakfast was offered with cereal, waffle maker, muffins, toast, coffee and orange juice. A plus was the 24 hour staff, we arrived at 1 AM to be greeted by a very kind smiling staff person. Location is seven miles from the airport which is perfect for business travel, quiet, except for the pool guests at the Marriott Residence across the driveway. Close to shopping and restarunts.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet rooms on the third floor. Bring snacks for the refrigerator.

Good location, near a shopping, stores, and supermarket. The room is big, clean, the bed is very comfortable, and the bathroom was ok too. The reception staff gave us full attention with some problems we had with the locker and internet access. It was very easy to get the 405 from the hotel, and our room was not noisy. And it's not far from Redondo Pier. The breakfast was ok, with some apples (sometimes bananas), cookies, cornflakes, muffins, waffles... An american typical. A good and safe place to sleep and recover the energies of busy vacation days in LA!

Stayed in room 310 July 2011 for 10 days. At first we thought they were mozquito bites but the welts continued to appear everyday. Entire family was bitten on exposed areas. Both adjacent rooms were empty and kept open during our stay. I snow suspect they had been fumigated and were being ventilated. They still gave us the room between these empty rooms. We had a terrible experience. I finally found a bug crawling up the mattress and trapped it and brought it to the front desk. Later that day we were given a new room after we stayed in our car all day and spent part of it at a laudramat. not a good way to spend a precious vacation day. Welts and marks are still all over us even after 2 weeks. I am embarrased to wear short sleaves and it has been up to 104 F back in home. It will take a while to get over this experience.

This place is setup like a motel. It's very run down.

Although they are supposed to have free wi-fi, it doesn't work in most rooms. They say you can use it in the lobby, which is TINY and has one loveseat. This is a huge problem if you're travelling on business or need to do any trip planning online.

The staff is unfriendly, unhelpful, and uninterested in customer service. They have a lot of excuses and very few solutions.

The breakfast is in a small room with a limited selection. The belgian waffle maker is good, everything else is a store bought pastry and kinda gross. Also, the coffee was completely cold one day.

Our first priority is to ensure guest satisfaction. Unfortunately, there was a period of time during which our wireless internet system was being reconfigured for better service, which caused temporary intermittent reception in rooms. We are happy to inform you that the wireless system is currently running, new and improved!

Please accept our apologies for the interruption in service --- I hope you will give us the opportunity to serve your accommodation needs again during your next visit to Los Angeles.

Warmest regards,

Taryn Lai | General Manager
