    « Modern hotel with good amenities »

    While in a somewhat seedy neighborhood, location was convenient to us. The hotel is a new construction, therefore clean and well organized. Soundproofing between adjacent rooms and hallway isn't great, however. Rooms are nice and large and good-looking, like you would find in much more expensive hotels. Some details however show where money was saved: the bathtub lining is some sort of imitation tile made of plastic. Beds were a bit too hard for me, but my wife liked them. Breakfast was quite good in a large, bright room on the second floor. We spent only one night so I can't comment on the quality of housekeeping. Our room was very clean. Suggestions for improvements: - the lighting in the room is very "cold". Choosing warner lights would improve the feeling in the room - it's very irritating to have to use the room key to operate the elevators

    « Friendly staff, horrible housekeeping service. »

    the staff were very friendly and efficient, they worked together to make my check-in process fast and easy. The room was dirty, the bed covers were stained and there were crums on the furniture and remote.

    « Excellent hotel. »

    Don't let the "looks scary" reviews well scary you. Do your research. Check crime maps if you're that concerned before booking. This place was nothing but excellent! We stayed for 4 nights & 3 of those nights we came in late around 11pm-midnight & never saw any of these "Seedy" characters others have mentioned in their reviews. Never even saw them when we drove anywhere near the area, we saw more in Hollywood than here. Safety was a big issue being we were two young women traveling together, but like I said, we never felt unsafe while we were here. Hotel access after a certain time requires a room keycard to open the doors, and you can't use the elevator except to the lobby floor without a room keycard as well. The hotel is great! Clean, modern. Staff is excellent & lovely, very friendly.. They even offered a room upgrade free of charge which was really nice of them. Standard complimentary hot breakfast with eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, muffins/bagels/toast/etc, waffles. Comfy bed & pillows which was so nice & I'm even missing now that I'm home, haha. The location of the hotel to places is actually really good too. Most places we went were only 30-45 mins away, Disney, Downtown La, Studio City. Santa Monica was a little bit more but that was mostly traffic. There's also a bunch of stores nearby just down Rosecrans Ave in Manhattan Beach like Target, Walmart and grocery stores like Whole Foods & Trader Joe's. CVS, Starbucks.

    « Dont' Book Here - This place is scary! »

    This hotel is located in a seedy and extremely off putting neighborhood, surrounded by "massage parlors" and other similar businesses. When we pulled into the parking lot, there were two obvious prostitutes and a gay couple kissing and undressing each other. My girl friend looked at me and said she would not stay in such a place. We walked into the lobby and explained the situation to the person at the desk, who said he did not have authority to process a cancellation but would have the manager call us. No call was ever received despite our making two calls and leaving messages for the manager. The hotel has charged us a cancellation charge, which we will dispute with our credit card company. Don't make the same mistake and book a room with this hotel. You will be sorry

    « Excellent hotel for the price »

    We stayed one night. The room was big, clean and comfortable. The bed was firm and the pillows soft. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had more than the typical continental breakfast. The parking lot was well lit and there was plenty of parking on a Friday night.

    « Great hotel for the price! »

    Stayed here during our first trip to LA. For the price, this place offers great value. Modern rooms, decent breakfast and great service. Our first room had an odor in the washroom and upon letting the front desk know, they promptly changed us to a newer room. Such service is always appreciated. The neighborhood isn't very exciting, but we knew that before selecting this hotel. It is however, the best hotel in this neighborhood of Gardena. Santa Monica is 25mins drive from here. And free parking helps!

    « Very surprised! »

    I stayed here for 3 nights and I can honestly say, this hotel really surprised me! I'm guessing it's newly built and that could be told by how clean it was! The rooms were so spacious, with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was a very decent size with all the necessities. The colour scheme of the room was very good setting a very nice scene. The corridors to the room were very wide and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I don't use room service when travelling but always have a look at the menu, and I must say, this was one of the most reasonably priced menus I have ever seen. There is a fridge and microwave oven in the room with complimentary coffee and a coffee maker. But no complimentary water. There is free breakfast which has all the basics with some fresh pastries and bagels. There's is also an option to cook your own fresh waffle. There is also a gym with the basic equipment. The car park at the hotel is free which was good. If I had to pick a negative, there would only be one and that would be the location. It's a little way away from all the Los Angeles attractions. We hired a car so it wasn't too bad, but if you don't have a car and want to do the attractions it can be quite hard and costly. Apart from that there were no problems at all, I would 100% recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

    Even though this hotel is not in an upscale surrounding, we were very happy with the hotel itself and felt it was the. Eat one we stayed in on our 8 day vacation. Modern secure features - very comfortable room and satisfying breakfast. Staff was personable and helpful.

    « Gardena »

    Overall experience was great, the appearance when i first drove down the street was sketchy but once you get in to the lobby it was really nice. The staff was very helpful and te room was excellent. Location was sketchy because of the area outside but I didn't have any problems with anyone. I drove to a restaurant for dinner which was easy and there are plenty of places to choose from. I will stay there again any time.

    « Very nice place South of LA »

    Nice quiet place (except for some guests during the third night). Reasonable priced and not too far from LAX. Rooms, and bathroom as wel,l are spacious, clean and up to date. Breakfast is good, basically hotel standard fare but well done. They should put towels into the gym though. Beds are great, finally a place with some decent firm mattresses.

    My stay in Gardena Best Western for the last four months on business has been oiustanding. When you are away frrom your family the people at this hotel relize this and make your stay so comfortable it just helps because you are already away from the people you love.

    « Great New Hotel in Gardena »

    This was my first time staying at the Best Western in Gardena, I loved it. It's a new hotel so it has all the modern conveniences, the breakfast is excellent I'm used to just cold cereal and waffles, here you can actually make breakfast sandwiches, I am a tea drinker and they had various flavors, also you can grab a cup of tea anytime during the day in the lobby. The showers are the best and the beds are comfortable, I could go on and on about this location. I usually stay at Staybridge in Torrance but they have lost a client, from now on I will book at this hotel.

    « Nice hotel in industrial area - reasonable prive »

    Can't fault the hotel. It's new and everything works. The breakfast is ok and the staff helpful. My only complaint is it's not in a great area if you are thinking of walking anywhere. There is s strip club next door and a adult movie show just around the corner. If you have a car there is good parking and security is high. A good option and much cheaper that hotels around the airport

    « Nice new hotel! »

    The location seems to be close enough to the airport to get there in about 15 minutes (we drove it at 5a so maybe anticipate traffic), but it does seem to be off the beaten path a bit. The parking was nice. There is a garage with what seems like small spaces, be be cautious if you are in a large vehicle. There is also secure outdoor parking. We didn't use the gym or the pool, but both looked nice. It is a new hotel, but oddly enough, the bathroom door was starting to rust a bit around edges. The beds were a bit firm, but I account that to being new. Breakfast was great but it gets busy quick, so try to hit it at 7a when it first opens. Customer service was great at check-in. Check out was the overnight guy, who seemed a little out of his element. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this place for families.

    « Excellent place to stay. »

    My husband and I visited the LA area in October 2016 and stayed 2 nights at this hotel. While driving to it from airport we noticed the neighborhood seemed shady and hoped it got better. Well this hotel is a crown jewel in the middle of what seems to be a somewhat questionable neighborhood. You wouldn't want to take a stroll or walk to a store at night and maybe even the day. But once you're inside hotel the security is excellent and the room is one of the best I've stayed. Nice big tv. Very nice comfortable bed. The bathroom is very very nice. They spared no expense on the furnishings. Very comfortable. And a breakfast was offered in the morning. The breakfast offered everything you could possibly desire. Certainly the best breakfast included in the motel price I've ever had. It was amazing how great this motel was. Other than the surroundings I would stay here every time I came to the LA area.

    « clean,comfortable »

    Location is near by downtown about 25 mins without traffic jam, but free parking was very convenience. The decoration of room is modern and feel comfortable, also have a beautiful view for sunrise. Bed was cozy for me , not to hard not to soft. But the shower was unmovable kind a little trouble for me. Breakfast is simply also got a little change everyday.

    « Good »

    Stayed 13 nights September/October this year. Arrived late and quick check in. Room as described and shown in photos. Bed comfortable and everything we needed in room - fridge, m/wave, coffee machine etc. Breakfast included - good choice and nice. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel in good location for sightseeing etc - area does not look good but we had no problems, it was near to everything and we had a rental car. Safe and free parking on site. A couple of problems we had were dealt with quickly and no fuss. Very good customer service. Chose this hotel because of price and the very good standard of accommodation which was provided. Would have paid twice as much for basic hotel in a more 'desirable' area. However after seeing the 'desirable' areas i.e. Venice beach etc was glad we chose Gardena. Would stay again and highly recommend.

    « Very Nice Hotel! »

    I went selected this hotel because I had business in the area. At arrival, I was surprised to see that the hotel's appearance was exactly as it was in the professional pictures. Lobby and surrounding areas were nicely appointed, neat and clean. The staff at check-in was very friendly and accommodating, and the check-in process was easy. After taking the elevator to the second floor, I exited the elevator and once again, I was surprised to find a very clean hallway and a very clean room awaiting me. My stay the hotel was very nice in most areas however, the one complaint that I have is that the same care that was shown at check-in and in the room preparation should be given to the breakfast. In my opinion, the breakfast was lacking... as a matter of fact, on the second day of my stay, after viewing the breakfast items, I skipped breakfast.. I would highly recommend this hotel to business travelers as well as families that want a nice, yet affordable hotel stay in the Gardena area.

    Hotel was great. Used them now on several occasions. Always received the best customer service, especially from Jessica and Steven. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Parking felt very secure. The neighborhood isn't Beverly Hills, so it'd you want that look else where...but I felt completely safe and comfortable at the hotel.

    « Best Best Western in and around the LA area »

    Does not get any newer than this hotel. I work at a Best Western hotel in the West Side of Los Angeles and I wish my hotel had all the things this place has. I first stayed here for my girlfriends B-day back in august and met the GM. Very knowledgeable, attentive, and involved in the business. We enjoyed our one night stay before leaving for Sea World so much that we have made a return visit and plan to visit it often when we need a place to relax. We always get the Jacuzzi suite, room is spacious, quiet, and everything you need such as Mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, microwave, hair dryer, iron, etc. The bathroom is very spacious and love the sliding glass doors rather than shower curtains. What I like is the No need to hang do not disturb signs or housekeeping signs outside your door, it all done with a simple touch of a button. Well this is one of the things I had at the hotel where I work at. I can not comment on the breakfast because I have not had time to try it but I am sure it is outstanding. The staff is really friendly and although the hotel has been open for under a year I noticed they have built a good relationship with frequent guests. If you are looking for a hotel close to LAX I know there is a lot of options but this hotel although a bit further than others is well worth it. I will recommend to travelers and direct guests over when the hotel I work at is full. See you guys soon and keep up the great work.

    « Very nice and clean hotel »

    I recently stayed there for a couple of weeks. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms looked recently renovated and the furniture was in very good shape. There was also a guest laundry facility which was very practical and allowed me to get my clothes cleaned at a very reasonable price. My only recommendation to the hotel would be to modify the breakfast hours. 7 AM start time is a bit late for people who wants to get going in the morning to beat the traffic to LA. Regardless, I was very pleased with the service I have received during my stay.

    « Gardena Inn Nice and Convenient Location »

    This hotel seems new and is nice and clean. The staff has been super friendly each time. Breakfast fare is standard continental. Neighborhood surrounding area does not have much to walk to but the Vietnamese restaurant across the street is decent and convenience store next door has everything you need to get through the night.. Drive thru Starbucks nearby. Garage parking is very nice, well lit and secure but limited spaces.

    « Great Hotel! »

    Where else can you get a huge, clean room in LA at a reasonable price that includes free breakfast, parking and WiFi. This is really a gem of a hotel. I stayed for 8 nights and it was an amazing stay. The staff at this hotel are really kind and helpful. If the manager is reading this, they seriously need to give Jonathan a promotion. He is an exceptional employee who made us feel at home. We looked forward to passing by the desk late at night and early in the morning to see him. One thing that could be improved is to make breakfast start at 6 or 6:30, rather than 7. The location a tad further away from LA than ideal, but it is such a great hotel that we didn't mind the extra 10-15 mins or so of driving each day to get to it. Keep up the great work!

    « Best Western with Tasty Breakfast »

    HelloTripAdvisor friends! I love to visit my extended family and friends who live in Compton (rip EAZY-E), El Segundo, CA - LAX areas. I was very glad when l booked this hotel! In short-it's worth the money and looks just like the photos the hotel posted. We had the King suite; huge bed, lots of pillows, comfy, big screen tv, black out curtains, mini couch (living room area), cool wall pictures, good ac, fridge, microwave, radio, view. Nice bright bathroom; lots of towels, hairdryer, toiletries. Floor l believe is laminate material which can be slippery so use the floor towels. (Was fine) Rooms have good security as does elevator/hotel overall. Family and couple oriented, which is great. No funny smells either-very clean! Professional, friendly, knowledgeable staff that made check in/out great. They tell you about the amenities (breakfast buffet, gym, laundry avail.) Real helpful! Cleaning staff very nice too, pleasant atmosphere. Coffee/tea available in the lobby for guests and a small area by the check in to buy chips, drinks, small snacks. Also an ATM. Uber from LAX was $18- USD took about 25 minutes. The parking lot can only be accessed from one entrance; no issues on space though. It's beside a small gentleman's club (looks like a hole in the wall) but no problems that l noticed. Also nearby is 7/11 store, couple fast food restaurants, bus-transit within 10minutes walking distance. Uber to the Ralphs grocery, shopping malls was approx. $8- USD. Definitely will stay again; it was nice to finally find a great place to relax! We will be back!

    This hotel was centrally located from a lot of locations that we were visiting this past week. It was 20-30 minutes on average from Disneyland, universal studios, LAX and the beaches. The staff were helpful when we asked where some good restaurants were and always made sure we were comfortable during our stay. The hotel was updated and clean and the brunch style breakfast was delicious. Couldn't say enough about this hotel.

The only knock on this place is the location. It's not the greatest neighborhood, however, the hotel is very safe with security cameras everywhere. This hotel is only six months old and Best Western spent a lot of money on this place. It is amazing!!

    This hotel is not in the best neighborhood, however, if you are looking for an affordable, clean place to stay, this is it. I was blown away at how upscale, nice and clean EVERYTHING was!! The hotel, at the time of this review, is only six months old so it even has the 'new hotel smell'. The staff is very helpful and very nice. The internet is secure and fast. The rooms are amazing! I just kept thinking why they made this hotel so awesome and put it in this neighborhood. I really hope it stays this way and the customers don't trash this place. It is truly a hidden gem!! I was on business so I didn't care about the neighborhood and the hotel had a million security cameras and excellent security. This hotel was very surprising, in deed!

    « Attractive, reasonably priced hotel for the area »

    Prices in downtown LA are often very high for nice hotels. This one is a beautiful modern hotel with great decor and classy rooms at a price my manager doesn't complain about. The area is probably seedy as there are safety precautions everywhere, as in an elevator operated with the room key, stairwells that don't connect to the hallways and exit externally only, and a parking garage with a closed entrance on the street side. But the hotel itself feels very safe. This is my second stay here and I will stay here again.

    « Moderate and quiet Place to stay »

    Nice hotel. Staff very helpful and extremely polite. I used one of the apps to book hotel about 15 mins to check in time. Average price $110. You will need keys to get navigate elevator,open room and gain access in to hotel. So great security if you ask me. 24hr Gym, breakfast provided . Location is perfect about 15mins from Beverly hills, Hollywood boulevard. Average sized swimming pool. Rooms are huge and well equipped with Fridge,Laundry service etc. Good price for the Hollywood touring experience I had. Will definitely come here again.

    A modern hotel with its own parking. A very nice clean room. Breakfastbuffet is simple but ok. Staff is very friendly. The pool has not much privacy because of parking. We liked also the businesscorner with use of the computer/printer and the coffee/tea facility. The atm in the lobby we find also very handy (this is not a common thing at the Netherlands).

In addition, the parking structure is locked at 9pm and everyone must use their hotel card to enter, use the elevator, etc. so I felt very safe. I'd definitely stay here again.

    « Brand New Hotel, Great Manager and Excellent Staff. »

    My family and I came to stay for only 2 night! at first we didn't know how it was inside, when we went up to our room, we were surprised by the cleanness, freshness, everything new, the bed, the curtain, the blanket, the towels, the furniture, the big screen TV,, a huge room, and so on... We've been in so many other hotels in the past, including a few other Best Western Plus. But this one, is a 100% better than anyone we've been before. The Breakfast is included and is a buffet, excellent breakfast! The building is secured. You need your room key to take the elevator, to enter your room, or to enter inside the Gym. And outside each rooms, there is a bell button with light, and Inside the room, there is a different switch with lights that indicates if you need room service or not, and instead of hanging a do not disturb sign, they have electronic light, that does it for you. They have computer area, free internet, copy machine, and fax... In the lobby, there are 3,4, screen TV that you can sit and watch while drinking a coffee... They have, 24 hr. hot coffee and Tea. basically, They have everything you need. We definitely coming back to this hotel! I will definitely send my family and friends to this hotel. I also recommend to anyone who is out there doubting... to first go and see it for yourself, I guarantee, you'l be satisfied like us. The Manager and the whole staff are very nice. Well, after our first night... we end up extending it for 5 more nights.

    We stayed 2 nights for pleasure and the accommodation was excellent with a free breakfast. The kitchen staff were very nice and we never ran out of food. The parking area is very safe. We get the news paper at the lobby counter in the morning. The internet was fast and without issues. The gym was very clean and had everything we need to exercise 24 hours a day. The only drawback is that the stairs are only for emergencies, I used it to go down a floor but had to go all the way out as we cannot reenter a floor down for safety reason.

    After a long day of driving from Las Vegas, it was nice to check into this Best Western. I think that all Best Westerns have tried to improve on their hotels, and this one did a fantastic job! The hotel was clean, the room was spacious, and comfortable. We spent 3 nights here, and it was hands down the best hotel we stayed at during our long 10 day trip. The only complaint was the size of the breakfast room. While the room was large, they had very few tables for guest. We spent one day perched on shelving on the side of the room. The next day was on a couch. They definitely need to add seating! The area that the hotel was in looked a bit sketchy, but it was quiet. I would stay here again. It was nice to have a central location to the beach and LA area, and so close to the airport.

    « Stay in Gardena »

    I actually work in Gardena and practically 3 min walk from my job to the hotel. Which is why I picked this location. The hotel is pretty amazing. My son loved the pool and wants to come back just because. The room was pretty spacious and very nice. We were fumigating our home which is why we needed a hotel. But who knows, might just come hang out for the heck of it. Will recommend to the coworkers as well. They usually need hotel stay when we do our Christmas party.

    « You won't be disappointed »

    The hotel is in a little place called Gardenia which is close to all major highways. It is surrounded by a mix of industrial, retail, and residential areas, which really doesn't matter very much, because you're out and about all the time. We had the privilege of staying there for 14 days. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and the rooms are nice. Outdoor pool is small and lacks shade, however; very good value for your money. You won't be disappointed!!

    I loved this hotel and I will be sure to stay here next trip to Cali! The hotel has Excellent customer service. Ray was amazing and helped expedite our check in. I loved the size of the room. We had plenty of space with 2 king size beds for our week stay. Rooms came with a microwave, refrigerator, safe, flat screen TV, and a large bathroom. Breakfast was also provided, they had many options for you to chose from (hot and cold).

    Top notch facility with a modern LOFT or Courtyard feel. Staff are hyper helpful and diligent. Location is central to the South Bay, convenient to Stubhub Center and LAX. Neighborhood is in transition but property security is excellent. Breakfast service is above average.

    « New and Ultra Modern but sketchy neighborhood »

    I didn't expect much from a Best Western, but this branch blew me away. It was clean and ultra modern. Included amongst the amenities are a laundry room, fitness center and a parking garage ( limited space ). They have outdoor parking as well but the spaces are on the small side, more on the compact car size. Lobby was clean and business center is located in this area with complimentary coffee/tea. They also have a pool, it's on the tiny side but being in this location I doubt you'll spend your time just wandering around the grounds. Check in: Front desk rep was friendly and quick. Also if you arrive in the evening, the only way to get in and out of the entrances is via room keycard. If you are checking in late don't worry front desk is 24 hours. Your room keycard gives you access to the building and elevators. You eill need it throughout the building. I think this a logical security feature as the neighborhood at this location appears to be kinda sketchy. Room: Super spacious and did not expect it to be. 2 king..yes king size beds plus a sofa bed with ample space left over. Big flat screen atleast 42 in. samsung. Restroom is also spacious and modern. Rainfall shower head but not rainfall setup. Room includes small coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, in-room safe and desk. View from room overlooks street. There is also free breakfast which today included bacon, eggs, pastries, toast, both hot and cold beverages, waffle (maker), etc etc. The 2nd floor is where you gain access to most of the amenities (fitness room, breakfast room, laundry facility/ did not see vending). Check out rep was equally kind and professional. Overall, this Best Western (plus) exceeded my expectations. The location is kinda close to the airport and downtown ( better if you take the streets rather hwy to avoid heavy traffic). All the staff here were very friendly. This Best Western is of hotel caliber. Even better than some other 3 to 4 star competitors. Also just be aware that since its new you can still smell the fumes from the "new'ness" of the place.

    « The smell made me sick and terrible location »

    The hotel is new and well done, but the toxic fumes of the furniture made me so sick I could barely get out of bed in the morning. I felt so sick. As soon as I was 10 minutes out of the hotel, I felt better. I later tried speaking to the manager, but they never retuned my phone calls. I also complained to my credit card company, but the manager disputed my complaint and refused to give me a refund. The location is scary. It's very dark and most buildings nearby are boarded up. There's a Burger King across the street that is fenced in - like a cage! It looks like San Quentin prison. My teenage daughter and I had to drive at least 20minutes just to find a "decent" place to eat. It was actually very scary driving around at night. I feel bad giving such a terrible review because I hope that this hotel helps turn the neighborhood around. However, I think that people should be aware of the location. I hope that the smell has subsided.

    « Bad neighborhood. We did not stay. »

    May not be not fair to rate a hotel by the neighborhood. We had made reservations to stay in our way to Los Angeles and when we arrived we did not feel comfortable with the neighborhood and we left, we picked another hotel. We did not see the rooms, only the lobby and it looked nice, new.

    « Best Western is the place to stay »

    Hotel and staff are wonderful. We checked in late and wanted to get something to eat that was close and fast. Ramon and Jlujano were wonderful, they gave us the name of several places and gave directions. The hotel lobby and rooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable. They have a hot breakfast that was very surprising with the variety and quality. Would stay there again.

    « Great stay, will be back! »

    I loved the hotel. The price was right and the area is pretty good. Check in was nice and easy. The staff was great. All of them were nice and friendly. The first night we were on the second floor and asked to be moved to a higher floor because of the noise of the people going into the breakfast room. I was quickly switched to another room. The lobby is very nice, spacious and modern. The room we stood in king suite, was awesome. Very clean, roomy and nicely decorated. Its a new hotel, you can smell the new. House keeping was on point. Very happy with how clean the room was. Good job ladies! Overall, my stay was great. I was there 9 days. I only have 1 suggestion for the property, which is to get more tables/chairs for the breakfast room. It was always packed. I must say, people can be very unconsiderate. They know very well theres not enough space, they eat and eat and eat and stay forever, while people wait or eat standing. I saw this every day i was there. Why cant people eat and just leave so others can eat sitting down? It was very bothersome. The last day we ended up just taking our food to our room, it was just a mess of people. Breakfast was fine. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, sausage. Waffles makers, cereal and an awesome coffee machine. You can serve yourself hot milk, cafe con leche and a great expresso. Great machine!!! There was also pastries, bread and hot chocolate machine. They also have oatmeal and a real yogurt dispencer. Loved the yogurt, took a cup to go every morning. The ladies that keep up the breakfast room, work really hard to keep it clean. Again people can be so inconsidarate. Clean up after yourself. They did a great job keeping up the space. The greeted us with a big smile and conversated with us every day. Parking is ok. The later you get to the hotel, the less space you will find, but we were able to park with no problem. I had a fantastic time here and i will be back when in LA. Oh, it also has a small outdoor pool, didnt use it, but it was clean.

    Love this hotel. Big, quiet room and very good bed for good sleep. The bathroom with shower was better for a hotelroom than a bathtub. Everything was fresh and clean. Hot breakfast, nice to start the day with. One of the best thing is the machine to fill up water bottle -both in fitness and breakfastroom. After a two week roadtrip, and big amount of water bottles, this was much appreciated. Good security to prevent outsider from going up to guests rooms. In room safe with rather good size. Polite,friendly, helpful staff.

    « Small Details Matter »

    My family and i booked this hotel for 4th of July weekend because we knew it had just opened up earlier this year. Got there and first impression was bad because the neighborhood was super ugly and with all due respect it was ghetto! The hotel was nice. We went to the pool and we were all very surprised at how small the pool was; i believe seeing a sign that said that no more than 18-20 (can't remember exact number) people could get in (that's how small it is). Then pool chairs had cushions that were stained, and they were on the floor too. I thought that maybe they would fix this issue later on but i was wrong. In total we stayed two nights; and i checked even the day we left and cushions were still in the same spot on the floor. The umbrella in the pool is also broken. The rooms were nice, large and clean. However the curtains were falling off the rack, and it seems like they had been that way since we walked in our room. Walking down the hallways we noticed that the carpet was a bit dirty (needed a simple vacuum); didn't happen. Even the day we left, the floor had the same small trash particles on the floor. It was amazing how the housekeepers didn't see this. The breakfast was decent; however again the breakfast room is way to small for the number of rooms they have. I remember seeing people taking their breakfasts to their rooms because there were no available chairs for them and their families to sit at. Overall this hotel was nice only because everything in still in decent condition since it just opened up not too long ago. The employees are nice, they just have to put more attention to the small details. I personally would not stay again just because the neighborhood didn't make me feel like i was in a vacation. But if you don't care about small details then you're good here.

    We needed a hotel for two nights, and everything by the airport was so expensive, so we tried this place. It was totally worth a few extra minutes of driving to stay at the Best Western.

    « Great Looking Rooms »

    It's a bit of a rough looking area but don't let that fool you. The rooms are great and have a lot of room in them. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There was a menu in the room that you can order food to be delivered form all kinds of cuisine from Mexican to Asian. You need a key to access the elevator and a key to access the building after 9pm which makes you feel secure. If your in the are this is THE PLACE to stay.

    « Overall good »

    We stopped here on our family Roadtrip and booked based on price & proximity to some of the activities in the city. Let me start by saying the Hotel is not in a good part of town. Once we checked in the property we felt a little better. For being a new property the hallways and rooms were not as clean as you would expect. The hallway floors never looked like they were mopped. Everything looked like it just needed a good cleaning. The rooms were nice and spacious but if they are not kept up with I can see them being run down fast. The breakfast was good and the staff was helpful.

    « One of the best hotels I have stayed at! »

    This has to be one of the best hotels that I have stayed at. Right when we checked in, Raymond and Vick were very welcoming and helpful. They got my aunt a room that accommodated her ADA needs and they were kind enough to put us in a room right next to her. When we asked for good places to eat, or directions on how to go places, all of the front desk employees are happy and eager to help. Also, as you come home from a long day out, the front desk welcomes you back and asked how our day was. Overall, the staff is very friendly, go above and beyond to help you, and they make your stay a memorable one.

    « Nice hotel to stay just outside Los Angeles! »

    The hotel was 4 months old when we stayed there, so everything was still brand new. Nice staff that we talked to, very friendly and helpful. There's a complimentary "on demand" coffee machine in the lobby, along with a couple of computers for guests to use. They have a small pool just outside the lobby. Guests will have to walk through the lobby for it, and I noticed a bit of a problem. Some guests who may not care, they'd just walk through with wet feet and creating what could be a slippery floor. Fortunately the front desk staff noticed this and cleaned the floor minutes later. Hopefully they'd have some kind of mat for guests to dry their feet before exiting the pool area by now. The room we had was nice and quiet. Very comfortable king sized bed, spacious room, and a shower enclosure in the bathroom instead of bathtub. I did not take advantage of the breakfast that they offered because I thought that it's being served rather late in the day. I have an early entry from Universal Studios, and if I want to take advantage of that, I'd have to be at the park before 8am. If I had breakfast before we leave the hotel, we wouldn't have made it for the park opening. I've mentioned it to the front desk staff when we left that they should have the breakfast at an earlier time. I'd stay there again for sure! Hopefully I'll get to enjoy their breakfast next time.

    « Very helpful and accomodating staff! »

    I stayed here on two different occasions in May while my husband and I were in California to adopt a baby boy. Staying in a hotel with a newborn isn't ideal, but the staff here was so helpful and friendly, and the hotel was extremely clean (which was really my number one concern for having a newborn there). We also had a bit of an up-in-the-air situation with the adoption and had to basically reserve our room night by night, but the manager Vick was so great in keeping a room available for us even though we were never sure if we would be needing it or not. I would say the only complaint I would have is that the hotel isn't really in the greatest area - the surrounding establishments are a bit sketchy -- liquor store, strip club...taco bell, haha ;) and so you pretty much want to stay put once you get checked in. No taking a walk in the neighborhood. But, it is fairly close to LAX (15 minutes if no traffic) which is nice. Oh, and the breakfast area could be a bit larger - we came down a few times and had to stand around until someone got up so that we could sit. All in all, great place. Would definitely stay there again and would certainly recommend it to others!

    The room was excellent...couch and chair (rare find).....wonderful bed. Great facilities. We were on our way home via LA after a 46 day trip. This hotel was a welcome rest stop. Room service menu was excellent and varied and simple to use. The bed was the best we'd slept in and the breakfast was seriously the best "included" hotel breakfast we had eaten in the USA over the course of 46 days and nights. Will definitely stay again en route to wherever we are going in the future. Staff was so helpful and friendly and the free coffee and computer use in the foyer a bonus.

    I found this Hotel after staying a night near LAX and was tired of paying for parking and WIFI with the higher costs near LAX. The free breakfast was excellent although a little congested on the weekend. The rooms were clean and new. Excellent decor in rooms and great functionality of space in bathrooms to place travel supplies. The neighborhood is typical of the valley if not from the area, as I would not walk to any of the businesses in the area, but we drove.

    We arrived late and tired but the staff (lead by Jonathon) was excellent. Very helpful and patient with some problems we had which weren't the hotel or staff's fault (it was because we were tired). Area not so great but you feel safe because gates are closed, elevators work only with your room card, etc. Two things to remember: you can't get the elevator to go to a floor that your room isn't on and the a/c units only work with the wall thermostat (not the panel on the a/c unit). They told us when checking in but we were too tired to remember.

    I'd been in this hotel for 5 days. I was really impressed by it's quality. I've been 5 times in the US before, i think it was one of the best hotel i'd been there. All the building and furnishings are new and stylish. Their sense of management is new and modern also. There's a microwave in the room. There's a free car parking area. The breakfast is very good compared to the American breakfast culture; you can crimp, you can find eggs and omelets, coffee etc. at the breakfast. Additionaly the location of the hotel is very strategic and centralized for Los Angeles. It takes 15 min to go to Long Beach or LAX by car. I really want to stay here again if I go to LA. I will consider BW especially BW PLUS hotels also for my next travel.

    « An unexpected reprieve - »

    "Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives." After a difficult trip, we stopped in to find a newly finished hotel, a helpful, friendly front desk and a well stocked breakfast bar in the morning. I thought I saw a laundry room on the second floor near a gym, and the door locks appear to take lessons learned from information security into account. (Ports on the underside can't be accessed easily, new type of secondary locking mechanism.) Finally, thank god for the guy working the desk the night we stopped in, we thought we had lost a bag and he went out of his way to investigate. How do you know I'm not a shill? 8chan, spacex, rfs 2016. That's how.

There was also no shortage of service and helpfulness by a very polite staff.

    Wasn't sure which location to stay in Southern California. Came with 2 friends on a last minute vacation, planned on going to every attraction in south California. Never heard of Gardena and didn't want to stay directly in the expensive city. But still wanted a comfortable stay. Took a chance with this location, and didn't regret it one bit. Beautiful hotel, great rate, and great hospitality. When I first pulled up I was kind of worried because of the surrounding area. But once inside I was relieved. Attendants definitely went above and beyond this trip.

    « Our best hotel experience ever. »

    We stayed here for 11 days. The hotel was chosen after thorough research. The hotel was completed renovated three months before we arrived. The choice fell on the Best Western according to the following criteria: Most value, free parking (always free space), free WiFi (worked great), breakfast included, new hotel, service minded staff. 4 of us agreed that this was the best hotel experience we've had ever. Huge room with huge and functional bathroom. 2 King Size beds that were gigantic. All slept very well. Cleaning of the rooms is daily and at a level at 5 star hotel. Staff were without exception extremely friendly and service-minded. There was constantly feeling that they were committed and genuinely interested in making sure we were having a good time. Breakfast selection was qualitatively very good. Very good coffee, juice, yogurt, toast, eggs and bacon and waffel with syrup and cream for dessert can be mentioned. The hotel has good qualities across the board, color schemes makes you relax. Always good to get back to the Best Western after a rich adventure day. Particularly noted that staff is so attentive and interested in us having a good time. In LA car is a must, also GPS. Best Western Plus Gardena is close to everything. We went at sports events, on the beach (the bathroom and rented elbikes) concerts, musicals, museums and numerous other attractions. Everything is at a suitable distance from the hotel. We would recommend this hotel highly and would love to come back.

    As the title reads the hotel is great, opened only 3 months ago. Rooms are huge, all new furniture and fittings, plenty of towels and bathroom products (no shower cap, so bring your own). The hotel is located about 15 mins from LAX but with traffic took us over 40 minutes. We had a car rented so we didn't need to walk around the area and I wouldn't recommend walking the area day or night. Security at hotel is very good they lock the doors at 9pm every night and you need your card to access all doors and the elevator. Breakfast is included and there is a large breakfast room on the 2nd floor. Selection was ok and the ladies were a little slow at restocking the items and we ate breakfast at 8am both day. The staff were very helpful especially Peter and Jessica. If you want to have a good nights sleep get a room at the back of the hotel as the front of the hotel faces a main road.

He does a fantastic job running this beautiful hotel! The rooms are spotless and the layout is spacious and has everything you could possibly need. I will definitely be back because the size of the rooms and the service makes this hotel a tremendous value! Thanks again Vic for making me feel like a valued Best Western customer!

    This hotel is by far the cleanest and friendliest hotel I've ever been to. when I arrived I was immediately welcomed by Johnathan who made sure to make me feel comfortable and if i was at home.he did all he could do to make sure I was satisfied , he even called my room to check on how I was or if I needed anything. Jessica was super helpful, the attitude and vibe she gives let's you know that she legitimately cares about her guests. She is very beautiful too very awesome young woman. If u are visiting the western Los Angeles area/south bay,I highly recommend this place. This is the only place I will stay at now . thanks best western.!

    « Clean, Convienient Value priced LA area hotel »

    I usually stay at Hyatt or Hilton properties but was pleasantly surprised by this 2 month old brand new from the ground up Best Western Plus. Service was excellent. Nice varied free breakfast. Free parking. Free wifi. Rooms are spacious and clean with nice comfy beds and spacious appointed bathrooms. Good security. Gardena is not the most picturesque part of LA but its an hour or less to most of what LA has to offer. Very pleased.

    Area is a little rough but this Best Western was great. The staff obviously takes great pride in this property and their work. Everything was clean and new. Breakfast was adequate and seemed to be replenished as soon as something was out. Would definately stay again if in the area.

    This hotel is located near the airport. There are a few restaurants and business nearby. I love free parking. My grandson was disappointed with the small pool....but we went to the beach 2 days anyway. The beds were confront-able, the rooms are large and it was quiet. Breakfast was good especially the waffles. Good choices on breakfast. Staff was very accommodating. Location was great.. I will stay again.

    The hotel appeared to be just built. Very clean and modern looking. The staff were very helpful and professional. The room was spacious and clean with some up to date ammenities. Bathrooms were large and fairly clean. Only thing is we found a roach walking around the bathroom in the morning. We wasn?t able to experience the morning breakfast, but were offered snacks from a little snack bar. The surrounding area around the hotel seemed questionable. It didn?t seem to be in the best neighborhood.

    Nearly new hotel. Excellent, friendly service. Free upgrade was very nice and not expected. Stayed 2 nights to send granddaughter on a trip from LAX and spent the next day at the Getty Center. Granddaughter arrived safely and Getty was great.

    « Modern,clean and friendly »

    Hotel is almost brand new. Room was very spacious with good fittings and comfortable bed. We stayed 7nights and it was a great base for our sightseeing as we had a rental car. Good under cover free parking but if you get home late there is plenty of alternative parking just outside the entrance doors, The hotel was full and we were getting home after concerts /dinners and always car spaces. Area is working class,quiet at night and appeared safe. 711 and some fast food close by. No decent restaurants close so a car is a must. Very well priced for what you get. Breakfast was adequate although the room was overrun with school groups some days, but you could take food to your room. staff were very friendly throughout and always were offering to help with anything. Thanks to Peter and all. Printer and computer and coffee in lobby.Excellent free wifi.

    « What a Great Find! »

    We traveled from Orlando with our two little girls and we all absolutely loved this place! The location was convenient not far from any of our destinations. They have covered parking and it is free. We stayed for 2 nights. They have a good hot breakfast variety and it was a little different the two mornings we were there. The front desk assistant was helpful and when I called the concierge for a few items they brought them right up. It is about two months old, spacious rooms, book it!

    « This place has the WOW factor and TOP service to back it. Great Value for the money! »

    This location is near the beaches which is a straight drive to the ocean. Located near the freeways and tucked into an area that has a lot of great local shopping that is cost effective. Best Western Plus has rooms that are state of the art and the TV and all the amenities are all brand new and this place has a GM manager Vic Patel who is on his game to make sure clients get a positive experience. The staff is well trained and on the ball. They are concerned about making sure the customer is satisfied.

    Hotel is new and a very good value. Nice room. Breakfast was OK, but the hot food wasn't ready at 7:00AM when the breakfast was due to start. Parking was convenient, outside the reception area entry door.

    « Clean, Nicely Decorated Hotel, Welcoming Staff »

    We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The staff was very welcoming. The hotel is brand new with all modern amenities. We were 5 of us staying in a suite. The sofa bed was comfortable. Bathrooms were very clean, breakfast was good with some hot items included. Definitely worth the money that we spent. Best part was the service that we got after we checked out. As we were driving out of LA, we realized we had left a very valuable item in the room by mistake. When we called the hotel, the manager was very supportive, he arranged to look for the item and kept it ready for us at the reception. When we walked back into the hotel, everyone was treating us very nicely even though we had already checked out of the hotel.

    The hotel was clean and nicely decorated. Everything was brand new. The staff was very supportive. Breakfast was ok too - not extraordinary, but there were some freshly made items served hot. It was within 15 min drive from LA downtown.

    « New but with Issues »

    I would like to start off by saying that this hotel is beautiful and brand new. It has only been open for 3 weeks and the property is beautiful. Totally modern looking property which is a thumbs up for me. The surrounding area now that's what make this hotel not very curb appealing. The neighborhood looks run down they could have chosen a better location. The rooms also don't seem too insulated very well because I could hear every noise from people walking around upstairs to people just walking on the same floor to cars and trucks passing by all night. The hotel was very loud and made it very hard to sleep. Even though the room is new it was very dirty and not well maintained. The restroom had pubic hairs and the bed sheets where dirty. You would expect that from an older hotel but not from a new property. I used the exercise room and also had breakfast. Exercise room is phenomenal and very well maintained. They have an amazing setup that and for someone like me that uses the equipment it was a thumbs up. Breakfast area was very clean and the selection was good. The only issue this day was the power in the hotel went out that's when all my bad and negative vibes where recalled. I was not able to use the elevator or the ice machine and I need ice for my ice chest as we were going out for a hike. I had to stop and buy ice which was an inconvenience for me. I did have a person in the hotel help me out with my bags when he saw my family and me struggling. Overall I had a bad experience here and I don't know if I will be back to this hotel. I loved that it's new but they still have many issues that need to be worked out. I didn't even want to pay for the stay.

    « An Excellent Hotel With Great Service »

    This hotel is in a not too well known town of Gardena, far from the city center. We were pleasantly surprised that it was just opened in February 1, 2016, a brand new hotel. So, the rooms smelled new and clean, were very spacious with a loveseat and lounge chair. The bed was comfortable and clean. There were a microwave and small refrigerator. Internet and parking are free. Breakfast was good. Most of all, the staff seemed excited about their new hotel and were very helpful and friendly. Especially Vic. We had a fantastic stay!

    If you have a rental car and need to overnight near LAX, this is an excellent great property. I stayed two weeks after opening and the staff are really trying hard to promote business. There is secure parking under the hotel as well as a large lot outside. Big spacious brightly lit lobby welcomed us when we entered. Enjoyed my overnight

    Booked the king suite for a night out with my girlfriend to celebrate Valentine's day. As soon as we walked into the place it had the feeling of a high end hotel, everything brand new and shiny. The room was very spacious, had a fridge and a microwave that definitely came in handy when we ordered food from grubhub. Large bathrooms with great lighting which was important for my girlfiend when she was doing her makeup. Towels were very thick and soft. Carpet also super soft. Bed was very comfortable with some of the softest pillows I've ever used. You really have to see this place for yourself because it's hard to Write about everything, all I know is that I was 100% happy with my stay, no complaints whatsoever. Staff was awesome too, both guys that I encountered at the front desk where very nice. Will definitely come back again.

    « Beautiful rooms, safe location, awesome staff »

    Our family stayed at Best Western Plus three nights. Breakfast was wonderful with a wide variety to choose from. The staff, especially Peter and Raymond, were always welcoming and fun. They were quick to give us printed directions and "local" tips for places to visit. I also appreciated the easy access to the covered, gated parking. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks BWP Gardena! Ps. I read the first comment about "opening night bust" and after 4 days open, I feel many of the kinks you mentioned were ironed out. Our breakfast included more hot items like oatmeal, potatoes, eggs, ham and sausage. The elevators and vending machines worked fine. They even had workers inside finishing last minute details. As for the neighborhood, as my first time in California, I felt this area was like many others around. I always felt safe there.
