Staff is excellent. Room was new and tidy. There was a broken ironing board in the room that we called to have replaced when we checked in, and they sent up another right away. Excellent location, and valet parking is a nice touch, even though the garage is nice and clean. My only complaint is the amount of items in the room they charge you for if you touch them. Special towels, and a sprawling mini bar that takes up almost all the counter space in the bedroom, and a crowded mini fridge I had a hard time fitting a taco into. $4 for a can of pop, $9 for the snacks, and $30 for the towels if I remember correctly. Mini bar idea ok, but maybe less of it in the room, as it took up so much valuable space. I would stay again, but maybe request the extras be removed from the room before check-in.
Channel Road Inn was a great place to stay away from the hubbub of LA. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the bed and pillows extremely comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, and wine and cheese were really appreciated. Channel Road Inn has a peaceful ambience, yet so close to great shopping and the beach.
Me & my wife stayed here for a week.
We found the motel with no problems at all, just get the free airport bus to the LAX tranportation hub & catch the Big Blue Bus No3 from stop 12 ($1 fare each) & just under an hour later get off at the corners of Pico & Lincoln Blvd's & you'll see the big white/blue motel sign.
Check-in was no problem at all & the room was great, bed was good, tv had a lot of choice, bathroom/shower was really clean.
Only downfall to room was the lack of air-con & the ceiling fan was good provided you had the window open.
The window did have an insect cover, so should you need to open window, the little nasties could not get in.
Wi-fi is ok, the closer your room is to the main office the better the signal, as our room was at the back of the complex, we had to use the courtyard outdoor table & chairs area to use the wi-fi.
Beach is 20 mins walk from motel, simply exit the motel & turn left, walk to Pico & turn left & follow Pico all the way to beach, or catch Big Blue Bus No. 3 ($1 fare, 5-10 mins)
If you want to goto Hollywood, you can walk (about 20 mins) left out of hotel & simply follow Lincoln Blvd to Santa Monica Blvd & catch bus 704, or catch bus No.3 to beach & catch bus 704 from beach & then get off at Vermont/Sunset to use subway to Hollywood & Highland, then you can see chinese theatre at the main exit.
I suggest you buy a metro week pass ($25) which enables you to use metro buses & subway.
All-in-all our stay in LA was fantastic.
Great hotel and rooms are very nice and the bed was perfect, nice morning breakfast, (hot and cold). I would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. I travel around the world quite often and this was an unexpected surprise for the type of hotel you would think you were getting a basic room and No it was completely opposite, nice and elegant and big.
