La Quinta Inn & Suites LAX
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
After dropping Robyn off at the Shopping Outlet mall we headed to Disneyland. It has changed a lot in the thirty years since I was there last, they now have an additional park and multi storey car parking.
Back in the day we just drove to the on grade car park out front of the gates and walked on in, now you need trams etc to get to the gates. …
Again we dropped off Robyn at the Shops and Mood Fabrics as we made our way to the Hollywood hills destination Universal Studios.
Once we were there it was straight on to the Studio Tour which brought back memories of my last visit although Jaws was being refurbished which was a disappointment but the King Kong 3D section more than made up for …
We left San Diego late as we went shopping for some bits and pieces before heading to LA with a bit of a stop off to try and source some wonder goop that Robyn had found but alas they had non left in stock, we turned up at the hotel and got settled in before heading out again for dinner and a bit more shopping.
Tomorrow its Disneyland.
Howdy y'all. I guess I should put in my first entry for the trip! The flight to LA took about 14 hours, jetlag set in pretty quick. I spent the first day finding my hollywod hostel (the Banana Bungalow) then heading down to Venice beach to pick up the laat of my gear. LA is really hot compared to Melbourne, and the people seem uninterested and fake. It feels as if the California sun has bleached their perspnalities. Mexican for dinner (great ...
Day 2 at Disneyland saw us at the new park. Disneyland California Adventure is another awesome place. It is modelled on the newer Disney productions such as "Cars Land" and Bug's "Bug's Land". We saw a wonderful Musical "Aladdin" which was just like a show that you would pay for at QPac. We couldn't stay too late as Rick had to drive through peak hour traffic to get home. We all did our jobs well and we arrived home safely although quite ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites LAX Los Angeles
Not bad, but not great either.
Got this hotel from Priceline for $42/night (2 1/2* LAX)--not one of my best Priceline deals. Room was smallish but OK--lobby is old, ugly, and feels slightly seedy. Ask for a room facing the back--it's nice & quiet. Free local phone calls for 20 minutes only. Coin-op laundry facilities. Numerous fast food options within walking distance. If you have time be sure to take the free shuttle that goes to Manhattan Beach pier and take a walk on the beach (also stops at a very nice shopping center too)--the guy in the lobby will give you details. Overall, not a memorable place to stay, but nothing horrible either.
Comfy and worth every Penny!
The hotel was perfect for the price and the bed was incrediable. We only needed the room for one night because we were traveling to our resort the next day. I have to say that the bed here was ten times better then the one at the resort. I payed 57 dollars and the hotel provided free shuttle service from the airport and to. If you were staying at this hotel you could go across the ways to the Westin hotel and catch a free shuttle to Manhattan Beach. The beach and the surrounding sites were beautiful.
We had breakfast in the moring at the hotel it was alright but if you want more for your money go to Dennys down the block.
It was comfy!!!
It was a very comfortable and quiet room, close to the airport. The free bus service to and fro the beaches was wonderful, and the staff was very friendly, allowing me to leave my luggage with them after I checked out, while waiting for my plane to leave six hours later.
The negative, if any, is the $7 parking per day; the extremely limited tv channels, and the exercise room was a joke. Other than that, for the price, it was definitely a nice stay, and believe me, I am very picky.
If its price and convenience you are looking for, this is it...
A very basic 'inn'. The room is small, clean, tidy and not very noisy (just some TV noises from next door).
The hotel has an elevator to all floors, the restaurant has no business all-day, that's why I didn't try but has a MacDonald just next door.
This hotel is careful to give you the absolute minimum to keep itself rated in the 'business' category. For example, shampoo, but no conditioner; coffee but no decaf; an exercise room with 1 cardio machine (small treadmill). Like most LAX area hotels, it is heavily used and it shows in places. The lobby is clean but unattractive, the restaurant is a basic coffee shop, some carpeting is worn. the 7 dollar parking rate for guests is reasonable for the area. However, the two different rooms I stayed in on two recent occasions were clean with firm beds and no obvious maintenance issues. If you can get a good price (under $70) and just want a place to sleep on a layover or the like, this hotel can save you some time and money.
Yuck, Yuck, Yuck!!!
I am only glad that I had to stay in this place for 6 hours. We arrived at 9:00 PM and had a flight first thing in the morning so we ran out of there at 3:00AM. The bathroom had not been cleaned. There were recent and disgusting stains on the toilet and hair all over the shower. Stains were on the carpet. I can't even say how disgusted I was to sleep in this place. It doesn't matter what deal I got it was NOT WORTH IT!!!! Shop around....I wish I had!!!
Know what you're not getting
We were expecting certain ammenities to be included with the room, but were not. Including, parking which was $7.00 per day, for hotel guests, and complimentary continental breakfast. I've seen better exercise equipment in garages. Needless to say, nothing but the basics. Not even local calls!!! (without large deposit) Shop around, you could do better!
Will not stay here again.
I did Priceline for this hotel and felt I got a Priceline room. I was on the second floor fronting Century Blvd. (the main thoroughfare to LAX). Can we talk about the noise? When I arrived at 5pm, the room was still not done. I called maid service and the head maid was actually the one who came to finish the room. Strange not to have some very basic amenities. No clock/radio, no tv remote (instead it was a nintendo-like controller that was wired to the tv and only changed channels, didn't even have power on/off or volume controls), and no video checkout. They charged for the hotel safe. It was only $1 a day, but I've never been to a hotel where they actually charged for this service. There was no sign on the safe - I didn't find out about the charge until I was checking out (there is a small sign to the left of the front desk). Parking was $7 a day, cheaper than other airport hotels. Even though I got a good deal on Priceline, with so many other 4 star hotels on that same street, I would spend a little more to get a much better hotel.
Loved the services
the hotel staff was very on time and pleasant, the hotel itself was exactly what you see in the virtual tour, need a little more work on the exercise room, the location was not bad also, i stayed on the second floor which was very good, the room services was also very good to us, i booked over the internet and got exactly what i wanted, there limited noises at night.
Okay - the basics
Decent. What was expected for $66.00/night. All your basics are there.
Nothing that will make you say "wow." One of the pillow covers was dirty. No amenities whatsoever. They don't even have a mini refrigerator. The parking was $7.00 for hotel guest. It's by the airport so there is no entertainment around. If you are going to pay that price, I recommend living at the Best Western in Norwalk, CA (a little bit west of LAX - 8 minute drive). Free parking & free breakfast (bagels, bread, danish, cereal, cofee, tea, oj, milk, . . .) There is a microwave so you can heat over your take out or other items. There is an empty refrigerator for you to store your items. The furniture and the design of the room is better than Quality Hotel.
