Positive Reviews

Convenient roadside location

Reviewers were upbeat about this budget hotel's location just off California State Route 107 and about ten minutes' drive from freeways. It was a short drive from Pacific Ocean beaches like Redondo and Hermosa and there were plenty of dining options just a short walk away. Motorists appreciated the straightforward access to downtown LA, airports, area attractions, theme parks and shopping malls.

Clean, comfortable and affordable rooms

The rooms were reportedly well-equipped with coffee-makers, fridges and microwaves. Guests largely said the accommodation was straightforward but more than sufficiently clean, spacious and comfortable for a shorter stay. Budget-conscious visitors welcomed perks such as the free parking and complimentary breakfast. Thanks to its usually inexpensive rates, this hotel was often described as offering fair value for money.

Customer service praised

Reviewers frequently spoke highly about the customer service, often describing personnel as pleasant, helpful and professional.

Negative Reviews

Maintenance and cleanliness could be better

Although many guests were satisfied with the cleanliness standards at this hotel, some critics noted issues like insufficiently cleaned bathrooms and mold in certain rooms. Maintenance issues also attracted criticism from some quarters. Issues reported included dated decor, weak water pressure, broken fixtures and fittings and occasional interruptions to the hot water supply.

Annoying smells and noises reported

For some light sleepers, noisy air-conditioning proved to be a nuisance at times. Elsewhere, some critics said they could detect lingering smoke smells in certain parts of the property despite its smoke-free policy.

Mixed feelings over free Wi-Fi

The free Wi-Fi access divided opinion among reviewers. Some said it was reliable and sufficiently fast; others said they encountered slow speeds or a patchy signal.
