Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Los Angeles International Airport
Nice, Clean, and Comfortable
I stayed one night 9/13/04. The check in was quick and efficient. The staff were warm and welcoming. The room on the 9th floor was basic, but comfortable and clean. The street noise is considerable. The room had a sliding glass door opening to face busy Century Blvd, but with the sliding glass door closed, the traffic noise wasn't too bad. Fairly firm comfortable bed. Food in the lounge was very good and the staff was very friendly and cheerful. The pool is not heated, so it's a chilly swim! Parking was $9.00 in either a parking garage or parking lot. Good rate of $57.00 from the Holiday Inn website. Overall, a nice, basic hotel with friendly staff. I'd stay again.
Liked the Room, Hated the Intrusions
Great value for the price (Howire $50), pleasant front desk and room service staff, and a free airport shuttle. The best part was being able to drop off our rental car a couple of streets away(saving the $10 overnight hotel parking). However, someone knocked on our door at midnight, and our phone rang at 1:35 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Each time no one was at the other end. The hotel said the intrusions must have come from another hotel guest. To avoid the sleepless night we had, I recommend asking for a room that wasn't rented out the night before your stay.
Not So Bad
I stayed at this hotel in April for an eight-day stay. The hotel was close to the airport, but not much else. Room was not the worst I've seen, but could've been better. Don't even bother with the room service or buffet in the hotel's restaurant. There are several places nearby to grab a quick bite. Neighborhood isn't the most friendly I've been in. The pool was the highlight of my trip... was kind of in a funny location, but no biggie. Staff seemed pleasant. I will probably stay here again in the future, good value if you are in the area... and don't mind street noise.
Room is ok, but tiny
We got 2 rooms in very different locations. The staff said they can't find two closed no smoking rooms even in the same floor. Really? The room is kind of old but clean. It is just big enougth for a king size bed. And the window is not so tight so that you can heard the noise on the street. Park fee is $10. It is pretty close to airport and Car rental companies. So, it is ok to live there for catching early flight, but may not good for just living.
Decent, no frills hotel
We stayed in there in March 03. The front desk was nice and helpful.
The room was clean and comfortable, but just a standard room. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it appeared to be nice. We had drinks and appetizers in the bar area, the drinks and service were good. The downsides are: to go to the exercise room you have to go outside the hotel and enter through another door, this seems awkward and weird.
Also our room was on the backside of the hotel and someone in the residential area was having a party playing loud music all night long.
Oh and the parking is $8 a day. The location is great for the airport only, but other than that there's really nothing in the area at all.
This is just your basic Holiday Inn, no frills.
The title sums it up. 2 or 3 out of 5.
It's handy to the airport and other things if you have transport and, like the rest of LA, not handy to anywhere if you don't. The area itself is pretty dubious. The rooms are clean and tidy and everything worked, although they are showing a fair amount of wear. Road noise is surprisingly high and, at times, invasive.
The staff were variable - some were good, some were bad, most were fine so long as you were very exact about what you wanted.
I'd stay there again if there was nothing better on offer for the price (and arrange better transport next time!) and needed to be in the same area, but otherwise I'd try the Quality Inn next door first - it is quieter, newer and lower priced. That or one of the other half dozen hotels littering that stretch of road.
Very bad stay
We had a terrible experience with this hotel when we travelled there in Dec'03. We wanted a non smoking room and was given a smoking room. The staff didn't give us a different room, instead the room was sprayed which didn't have any effect. The door to the attached bathroom didn't lock properly. Even the amenities like alarm clock in the room were missing. The staff was not at all friendly. The parking was also hard to find with the hotel, even their shuttles to the airport didn't have a place to park. Parking was costly as well (10$)
It was really a terrible experience. We would definitely not recommend it.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in early Dec 2003. We rang the hotel from the airport and they offered us a king bed room at an Internet rate. The staff were cheerful and very helpful. My biggest thanks go to the staff at the conicerge desk who gave us good directions and discount vouchers to the attractions.
The rooms could be brightened up, but all in all we were very pleased with the hotel.
We have stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is great. The staffs are great. However, parking of $8 is a bit expensive. They could also be better if they can improve their lighting. The corridors and rooms should install better lighting. Other than that, it was a great and clean hotel.
Good value, friendly staff. We stayed here in 2/03 and paid under $60 for a king bed with a sleeper sofa. Rooms clean and updated but could use better lighting. Some airport noise, awkward location of pool. Would recommend.

After a massive 12 hour flight with little sleep we finally landed in LA. We had to catch busses from where our plane landed cause it didn't have a parking spot. After getting through customs and keeping are pineapple lumps we made it outside where we were confronted with scorching heat which made me sweat. It wasn't long before we got to our hotel …
I was really excited about today. We had booked VIP tickets to Universal Studios! I totally recommend everyone do it, if you're headed that way. Basically the pass gives you: a continental breakfast, jump to the front of the line pass (for rides), an all you can eat buffet and a private back lot tour. We arrived a bit early as our tour started at 11:45am. We were taken to check in, and then headed upstairs for a continental breakfast. There was pastries ...
... catch the bus! Had a nice lunch at an open air cafe and a walk along the high beach front before heading back to my hotel to prepare for my (hopeful) departure! While pushing the hotel baggage cart which I borrowed to move my 2 very heavy bags to reception I saw 2 of the smallest hummingbirds! They were the size of a butterfly and were either courting or fighting - not sure which. Shame I didn't have my camera at hand! Caught the ...
... or our poorer NZ cousins (haha, I'm joking, honest, I love you guys...wait, is there even anyone from NZ reading this? Never mind!) Hilarity, hijinks, and lots of cheap alcohol ensue, and by the end of the night I can't remember much, but I'm pretty sure that everyone had a great night! I think! The next day I decided to take it a little easier. After getting up rather late I headed off to a nearby DFO called "The Castle" (sadly not in the shape of an actual castle!) for ...
