Everything about our stay was amazing EXCEPT that I was really looking forward to using the pool, and it was shut down. This wasn't really the staff's fault as a guest had an "accident" in the pool, and I didn't get a chance to use it. Overall, I had a great experience and I recommend this hotel to anyone!
I was there for almost two weeks. The hotel a nice European vibe to it. I found the staff very nice and accommodating. On the down side, my room was rather dark. Not much light through the only window which looked out into the enclosed section of the hotel. The Internet connection was very slow. That sucks if you're using the hotel as a work base. The parking in the back is problematic. Because you pay for parking ($15,00 a day), if the hotel is full up you may not be able to get a spot (it's not assigned) if you're come in late at night from a party at Jennifer Aniston's. The walls are little thin but it would be worse. My room smelled a little like Belgium, but again, it could have been worse. All in all I would return...if they could just app up their WiFi!
Los Angeles can be brutal. Traffic sucks, and all the places you want to visit are 15 miles apart. But none of that matters if you stay here. It is a simple, quiet oasis. If you want action, don't stay here. If you want a clean room, free parking, and a hot cup of coffee and a Danish in the morning then I suggest you reserve a room.
The property is a small, older hotel. It was easy to access from Santa Monica Blvd. Check-in went smoothly and the room was comfortable and clean. We got directions to great restaurant within walking distance. Although we were on the street side, there was no problem with noise. We didn't eat breakfast but the coffee was appreciated. The staff accommodated a late check-out. We would stay again.
In Australia I wouldn't necessarily choose to stay in a best western, but I stayed in 3 best Western plus while on this trip & this one was the best, the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, beds were comfy, the continental breakfast was great, public transport close by... Overall I was really happy with my stay here
This hotel is OK. Close to points of interest. The building is old but in good condition and the staff is very attentive. We've been in many Holiday Inn Express hotels before and this one should improve some things in order to keep the name, in my opinion.
