    « Great location, fantastic staff »

    Great location on Sepulveda near the Metro station with access to all of LA. The hotel room was spacious and the breakfast was nice. There is plenty of parking on the street. But the best thing about this hotel is the fantastic staff, especially Fred who helped us out a great deal. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Good central location to Santa Monica, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills. Downside is only free parking is on street. Valet is $20/day. Breakfast is ok. Does have pool and hot tub. Area seems decent, but is older.

    « Location is near all attractions. »

    The hotel has a small hotel feel. I liked the location. It is near all the L.A attractions we were there to see: Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, and Beverly Hills. Breakfast was great and they had complementary coffee all day. The room is spacious with a small balcony and seating area. Downside is you have to pay for parking everyday. Which adds up to the total cost of your stay. So, if you think you're getting a good deal, add parking to that. Our bathroom's vent made an awful noise every time you turned it on. That was annoying. Hotel could use some updates, very old color scheme. Overall, I liked our stay. I would recommend to families passing through or taking in sights.

    Family friendly pleasant environment Very helpful staff, good location for surroundings. I would definitely stay there again if I need to be in that area. I do think this part of the survey is way too long.

    « Decent hotel in good location »

    Hotel isn't bad for the price, but definitely could use an update. It blows my mind they spend money on a 24 hour valet, it must be an LA thing I guess. The stay was quite, it is close to lots of restaurants, and the room was clean. Service wasn't the quickest but they were very friendly and helpful. Overall, the hotel needs some serious updating but it decent for the price in LA.

    « Atypical of Best Western »

    Unenthusiastic and unhelpful staff, dark and disappointing rentals. One of those rooms where your heart sinks as soon as you enter the door. Very atypical of a Best Western. Only plus is the location is great, close to westside LA and adjacent to a metro station.

    « One outstanding employee is the redeeming feature »

    Good breakfast, convenient location and an outstanding employee named Fred. Everything else was a disappointment. The room was small, the bed uncomfortable and the bathroom in dire need of modernizing

    « Dissapointing »

    I had a room with a sitting area attached and a balcony on the third floor facing S Sepulveda. First impressions were a musty smell in the room, although it was clean. It appears to have undergone a recent update, but there were some signs of disrepair like chips in the walls and the balcony felt like it would collapse if you walked close to the edge. There is also a severe lack of customer service. There is one man in particular (older, white, male) who is SO apathetic to all concerns; from the vending machine being broken when I tried to get a bottle of water, he essentially told me to drink from the tap in my room. I called again (from my personal cell phone because my room phone wasn't working) when my hall filled with noisy teenagers at 11:30pm running in and out of each other's rooms and yelling and laughing, he told me "they should settle down soon". The hot tub also didn't work, but when I saw the same man was at the desk I didn't even bother. It seems like this hotel is hanging on for dear life. Overall the room was functional and comfortable, and clean. But walls are paper thin and as I mentioned, customer service is non-existent. One perk is that it is very close to the Metro Expo line that will take you right into Santa Monica or DT LA. Neighborhood is crummy, but fine during the day, but I wouldn't walk alone at night.

    « Great »

    This hotel is in a good location. A short drive away from Hollywood and the lovely Santa Monica! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I do think the parking situation is a little OTT and I also think that when checkin in they should let you know that they will be charging the parking to the card you give as insurance. I would return to this hotel though as I was satisfied with my stay.

    « Good location but really noisy »

    I chose this place because I had an appointment close by the next morning and didn't want to pay too much for a hotel room. This BW is good, comfortable and clean with very pleasant staff but the location is incredibly noisy! Thank god for earplugs!

    « recent stay - last minute family funeral »

    The staff is excellent and very friendly/helpful. The hotel is overall quite clean, comfortable and well equipped and conveniently located. A very good value compared to other hotels in the neighborhood. They have a good selection at breakfast. The only 2 negatives were the bathroom light has a noisy fan with it- so if you go to the bathroom at night -to turn on the light- wakes up your partner& the outdoor lock to our building was broken- not fixed in the 2 days I was there- felt unsafe- anyone could walk into the building from the street

    We had a great time at this best western. The service was great and very accommodating. There's free breakfast, fast internet and a pool/jacuzzi :) There is 24hr valet parking, which makes you feel very safe and secure about your car and parking. Enjoy!

    « Review of BW Royal Palace Inn, Los Angeles »

    Overall close to an excellent rating for our stay. Enjoyed proximity to Metro station and Santa Monica, excellent breakfast arrangement and variety in a large comfy dining room. Mostly upgraded decor; our HVAC unit was old however. The bathroom was small and needed extra towel racks and a door hook. Loved having the extra sitting room and TV in the double queen suite along with a patio sitting area for two people. My biggest concern was the lack of disabled access to our room. There was no elevator access from the lobby and I had to climb 6 stairs to the second level where there was an elevator. I think they should just build a ramp from the lobby to the first split level.

    « Cozy stay »

    Hotel is a 4mile drive to Santa Monica Pier. The lobby was surprisingly very nice. Front desk staff and valet were very friendly. Free continental breakfast was a plus. Room itself was well kept, good services all around. Its not the fanciest hotel, but it gets the job done. Would not expect anything more. Great value.

    « Nice hotel »

    It's nice for your average business trip. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. There's free coffee and water by the front desk. The bed is comfortable and there is a business center even though everyone now travels with a personal business center. There's nothing much interesting close by but there is a Denny's, Target and CVS should you need them. It's not fancy, but if you're not looking for fancy, it gets the job done.

    « Clean large rooms »

    This hotel was clean with friendly staff. The location is very close to UCLA Ronald Reagan, our destination. The bed was comfortable. The parking is $12.00 a night, some street parking available. The breakfast was ok, too much starch for my liking.

    « Best Western Royal Palace »

    This hotel is well located as it is very near to a metro station, only 15 minutes from the Santa Monica boardwalk via metro. It is also near UCLA student housing. The hotel was very clean and service pleasant. The breakfast was varied although the orange juice was horrible and the fruit kind of ancient. The bed was comfortable and the room large. Swimming pool is clean but very small. Parking is available for an extra fee and is guarded.

    « Great stay »

    We had a great stay. The manager is awesome and will take care of any little issues right away. The hotel is located near the blue train line that takes you to Santa Monica and downtown, which makes it a great place for sightseeing. We had a fantastic experience overall.

    I stayed at this Best Western hotel for the first time. At the check inn time the staff was very friendly, explained me every thing about the hotel and breakfast. Breakfast, was great( hot and cold) what ever you desire. My parents and had so many questions about the City?. All we wanted to see was right close by. Beverly hills, Rodeo drive for my mom. Beaches, for us. Venice, Santa Monica and Malibu. Everything is easy reach. They lots of recommendations for us to eat and explore. Thank you Best Western, my father says we will come again.

    Very nice, kindness peaple, beautiful and spacious room, very good breakfast with a lot of food. Near the train station to Santa Monica and downtown LA with 1.75 $ and 1$ to bay a tap card, very cheap. We took the train to Santa Monica and after rented a bike at Santa Monica Bike Center we ride a splendid trail along the coast Giuliana and Carlo from Italy

    « Average Hotel- Only good for a quick stop »

    I checked into the property expecting something very different. I guess I was used to the Best Westin Hotel chain; But it was very different. Was very basic and I would suggest that all travelers check the property website before booking it. Thank God there were a couple of restaurants in the vicinity. I would only use this property for a short sleep over.

    Very pleased with our stay and enjoyed the breakfast each morning! They rotated sausage/scrambled eggs and bacon/cheese omelets daily along with other staple breakfast items. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Parking was ok but a tight squeeze for a small suv. We'll definitely stay here again!

    « Great staff, breakfast and location »

    This hotel is in a great location. Close to the Metro Rail which makes it easy to get to the beach, downtown L.A. and Hollywood. The breakfast was one of the best free breakfasts we had had. The staff, especially the front desk staff, was amazing.

    « Very pleasant stay »

    Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The staff will do what they can to make your time enjoyable. We arrived very early after an early flight into Los Angeles and were offered a complimentary breakfast while we waited for the room to be ready which was great after a long flight and generous of the staff. Booked a tour through the hotel; the process was easy and hassle free and it was a great Starline tour recommended by the hotel. Room is spacious, pristine and nicely appointed. One annoyance is the bathroom which has poor yellow lighting and a constant radiator noise while the light is on. 2 minute walk to the metro to Santa Monica or Downtown. To get to Hollywood you must change metros at 7th Street station. Uber/ride share needed for Beverly Hills. Decent location convenience-wise with a big supermarket a 10 minute walk away. Did not get a great impression of the area as there are many homeless individuals nearby and although they keep to themselves, I would not recommend walking around the area alone or at night. Buffet breakfast definitely enough to start the day and quite tasty :) The kindness of the staff was excellent and reassuring. The location was not a plus for me but I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Made a stay that was difficult a better trip »

    Was in LA because our oldest sister was having a major operation that was set only 4 days before arriving. We had 4 sisters staying in the room, having the large room was so nice and we paid for parking which was great they would leave our car out front during the day as we were back and forth and they knew this and had no problem, Walter was the valet and he was wonderful taking luggage and bags back and forth to our room, Frank at the front desk was also wonderful always had ice ready for us when we came in as the ice machine was not working but was not a problem. The hot tub was nice and hot but the bubbles were not working but after a long day at the hospital on your feet it felt good. Beds were comfy even the hide a bed that I slept on was good. Our only issue was the bathroom was small and with 4 ladies getting ready in morning was a little difficult but had a mirror in bedroom overall great hotel and staff would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend to anyone

We would definitely return and thanks to Fred and thomas for all their help

    We were pleasantly surprised to find a reasonably priced hotel in a very expensive area. The exterior is nice, as well as the interior. It's better than most of the hotels of this type. The location is fantastic and very convenient to the freeway, beach and Metro. Be advised that there isn't an elevator, but the stairs are manageable.

    « Nice Hotel in LA »

    First off I have to say that everyone we met from Walter, Celeste and Fred were all very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were a nice size and very clean. We did not have time for breakfast but it appeared that they had a nice assortment for a continental style breakfast. The rooms have WiFi internet, refrigerator, microwave and a coffee maker. The hotel is close to the 405 freeway and a short distance to UCLA. This appears to be an older hotel with some upgrades to make it more modern but the carpet and wallpaper need a makeover and the A/C unit and filter could use some upgrades. They do charge $12 for parking and valet is available.

    « one-night stay »

    The hotel's and parking attendant were considerate and helpful. The hotel has structural short-coming including small bathroom with the sink's edge intruding out making moving around very difficult. As trying to enter the shower, the sharp edge of the sink scratched my back causing bleeding. Getting to the third floor i had to take the steps to the second floor or walk around to the garage to take the elevator to the third floor.

    « Great hotel for a romantic trip in LA »

    We booked this hotel for our 10 years anniversary and the staff made sure everything was perfect. People who work there are nice and very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and the menu was slightly different everyday (bacon & eggs, eggs and breakfast sausage, yogourt, pancakes, croissant, bagel, english muffin, fruits, etc.). It's the perfect location if you have a car (20 minutes from Santa Monica, 30 minutes from Universal Studios). We use the valet parking on the day of our arrival but afterwards, we parked on Sepulveda boulevard (there were always many spots left). We highly recommend this hotel!

    « Great hotel in LA area »

    I shouldn't give the Royal Palace such a high rating---it is an undiscovered jewel in West LA. Comfortable rooms--only downside is parking, but they have great valets and the charge is only $12 per day--and you can go in and out all day.

    « Great hotel »

    Excellent hotel with 2 room suites, comfortable, convenient, at a reasonable price, just off the 405 freeway near Westwood, West Los Angeles and Santa Monica. I would highly recommend this hotel for families, or business travelers needing a little more room. The only draw back is the bathrooms are small. Parking is available at $12/day with valet service.

    « Terrific hotel; great staff »

    I booked this hotel mainly for it's location and the great reviews. The hotel lived up to it's reviews; the staff is particularly good, especially Fred at the Front Desk. The reviews praising him were right on! the room was fine, the bed was comfortable, the cleaning folks did a nice job, and the parking people went above and beyond! The hotel is on a very busy, noisy street, but the room was quiet. It was a wonderful experience!!

    « Great Nights Sleep »

    If you have no other choice but to stay in Los Angeles, this is the place for you! The motel is so quiet, hard to believe, but true. We heard absolutely no noise when we were in our room. The bed was comfortable as well. As a matter of fact, this is the quietest hotel we have ever stayed in. All of the employees were very friendly, and went out of their way to please. Great people. Their parking is terrible. It is underneath the building and is a very tight squeeze. Do not use it if you are in a large car. We were fortunate to find parking on the street at night. There are not many choices for breakfast, pool is small and a lot of bumper to bumper traffic out front. But...... this is still the motel for us, due to the quiet and comfy bed.

    « Surprise Location »

    On the way to security check at the airport I received a call saying my Hotel Reservation in West LA had been cancelled due to renovations and they were moving me to the Best Western. What could I do? I said OK and hoped for the best. We arrived, tired. They had a nice quiet room for us. The bathroom is small, slightly larger than a closet. I don't live in the bathroom so it was mostly amusing that they had such small facilities. There is Valet parking for $12.00 a day. I didn't want the expense so I opted to park on the street. Once or twice it was a little iffy, but it worked out. It was really nice to find that the Metro was just a block away. We took the Metro into downtown LA for $1.75, and if you want, you can take it to the beach! Another nice surprise was that we were in the middle of Japantown. Ramen restaurants abound. Also, try the Indian restaurant around the corner on Pico Blvd. Fred recommended it and it was really good Fred works the desk and he is one of the kindest and friendliest front desk people ever. Thanks Fred! You were great!

    I've been in this hotel just one night after 20 hours flight. I arrived in late night at 2.00 am due to flight complication but Everything gone well: room clean, american breakfast delicious, staff extremely polite. Just parking 12$ is a little bit high.

    The hotel is close to the highway & easy (well not if you count LA traffic) access to metro & other hollywood sights. Our room was in the back which was quiet. Upon arrival they allowed us to check in early & even looked to upgrade our room, staff very friendly & helpful. Included continental breakfast 7-10 which is a nice bonus. One minus is the parking, they do not allow you to park your own car, valet only & they charge you $12. Room was clean and spacious. Would stay here again.

    I've stayed at this hotel for the last three years and it's the same friendly staff each time. (I think that's a good sign that there isn't turnover.)

    Hotel is conveniently located near LAX, Santa Monica, and Hollywood. Very nice staff, clean rooms, impressive free breakfast, and comfortable beds and pillows.

    « Great place from which to explore LA »

    Stayed here while exploring Hollywood and Santa Monica. It's very close to the 405 freeway in a neighborhood-feeling location. Not surrounded by other hotels and the freeway noise wasn't bad. Great, satisfying breakfast and nice tables in the lobby that we saw families using for take out dinners. Faustina, the breakfast lady, was exceptionally nice, keeping everything well stocked and cleaned, and even let us eat after the breakfast had closed for the morning. The parking lot under the hotel has a crazy approach and a large car/truck/SUV would have a lot of trouble getting in and out. Our room was a 2 Queen suite, with a separate TV room and attached balcony overlooking the pool (room 311 or possibly 312). It was lovely and quiet. The only complaint I have is the bathroom sink is right when you walk in and the bathroom itself was cramped. But that's not why I'm in a hotel! It was easy to walk to the train to take you to Santa Monica (15 minute ride instead of 30-60 minute drive) and also to other attractions in Hollywood area.

    « Amazing facility and service! »

    We rented the premium double queen room for our family of 5. Two extremely comfortable queen beds and a separate room (with its own doorway) to a full size sofa bed and television (perfect for my teens)-- there was also a nicely furnished spacious balcony. Breakfasts were delicious. Valet parking and bell service were quick and done with a smile! I had the privilege of working with Fred at check-in. What a gem! He greeted us upon arrival and continually treated us as if we were family during our three day stay. Thank You Fred!

    « better than expected »

    At first glance, i had questions, but this turned out to be fine. It is a small hotel/motel in a residential area. We arrived an hour before checkin time and were mmediately given a room facing the small parking lot. It was quiet, clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, the continental breakfast was excellent. It has definitely exceeded our expectations. Would definitely book again. On the negative side, the nearest store is half a mile away, and there was no easy chair in our room. On the positive side, it is two blocks from the metro train.

    5
    « Clean and courteous »

    Fred is the best! The entire facility is very clean. This was the best hotel i ever stayed at because it was close to the metro station and close to the Whole Foods Market. I like that is was close to the market because it is hard to eat healthy when traveling.

    its a great location. Prices on line were different from what I ended up paying. Overall nice place, friendly staff, but an unwanted charge of 12 each day for "valet" service.

    « New Adventure »

    This was my first visit to this Best Western and I made the reservation about a year ago of an upcoming concert at UCLA. I live on the east side of LA but always stay overnight as I am physically disabled and it makes things much easier for me and my caregiver. Unfortunately the concert was postponed several times so I was in contact with the staff all along the way and they were wonderful in letting me know the specifics of the room, etc for my comfort. Fred even called me the night before to assure me all was in order! Amazing! This BW is on a very busy, noisy street but all was so quiet and peaceful indoors. Parking is very tight due to space on site but a 24 Hour Valet assists with this. The room was great and had a normal, low bed which is great for someone like me who is physically disabled. The toilet seemed an inch or two higher than ADA requirements, but I am short. Missing was a grab bar next to the toilet/sink area which made it hard for me to get up and down as my walker slipped on the floor, but my caregiver was there. Hopefully a grab bar can somehow be installed. Other than that everything was fine and I would recommend this place to others. To make things even easier I ate breakfast in the room but the Breakfast Room is very well organized including a table for those in a wheelchair. Each table had a small planter with succulents on it, so nice and homey! Hot and cold items were on the menu. The staff was exemplary in making sure everything was going well and that makes all the difference in the world! Thank you Fred, Celeste and Herbert!

    The room was immaculate, and nicely furnished. Everyone on staff is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was plentiful, always stocked frequently, and had lots of variety with plenty of choices. There is valet parking, but most times there was on the street parking available. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. Fred, at the front desk, was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and even made reservations for us. The housekeeping staff was wonderful and kind, always asking what they could do for us (Olga was especially great). The property, inside and out, is nicely maintained with beautiful landscaping. I am already planning on staying here again on my next visit to LA in October.

    « Great Room, But? »

    The room was as advertised. It was super clean with all the amenities and everything worked. The huge closet and separate sitting room with a separate television was a surprise. This was really a great room, but the bathroom was just way to small. It was so tiny that it made the tiny bathroom we had in Paris look large. Everything else was very nice.

    « Good value and quality in LA »

    The hotel is located just a half block from the Expo Line light rail, which made it possible for me to stay there without renting a car and to commute to the LA convention center each day. The ride is about 40 minutes, but is not unpleasant. The facilities are those of an average motel, but well-maintained, and the staff was particularly attentive in keeping the breakfast areas clean and well supplied. The fitness facilities are limited.

    We spent 3 nights at the hotel to explore LA area. The hotel was of decent quality- room was great with a separate living area. Breakfast was adequate. Valet 24 hours and although our room was on the main road side we found it very quiet. Location was great. 30 seconds walk from the metro and although I don't remember exactly I would say maybe only 3 stops away from Santa Monica.

    Hotel stay was nice. The staff members were very couteous & helpful. Rooms were clean throughout. What I didn't like was that the elevator doesn't go directly to the lobby floor. A person needs to walk a flight of steps to get to the 2nd floor to get an elevator that goes to the upper floors.

    « So loud »

    We choose this for its proximately to Santa Monica, freeways and parking. We missed the choice was bad, when we were trying to decide between this and another we called to check if there was free parking and we were told there was. They honored this although they charge 12 a day to park. The entire place is tight, it uses very little land so every area is small. Our room was small but had a second area with a door a TV and a pull out sofa, like a little bedroom. The 3 piece bathroom was small with no counter space,  oddly enough the closet was giant. Our room was on the second floor but really a half story above ground with what seemed to be very poor windows. The road noise was so loud all night long. There really was just no good sound proofing at all. Breakfast was free and had enough to start you day but again everything is so tight, the breakfast room is also the lobby and the business center. I thought all the staff were friendly and helpful except at check in. I hate being asked the question"do you remember who you spoke with?". To me, every time I call a business I speak with the business and whom ever is on the phone is speaking on that premise. There are many amenities close by and it is easy to access just off a freeway but there is also people living under the bridge a block up the street.

    The friendliest hotel in West LA. It is not the high end hotel but very clean, valet parking, safe, small and the customer service is the best and personal, from valet to reception.

    Fred, the manager, is wonderful. My son lives locally and we use this hotel repeatedly for family visiting him and an occasional unexpected crisis. I sent my son with another student there in the middle of the night splattered with fake paint from a school film project when their keys were lost. This last time my son's apartment had to be painted due to mold. Fred helped us with a room on short notice twice in the last week. The rate was good. Service clearly the best. It is great to have a hotel that wants to serve the locals as well as all the tourists. Many thanks to Fred and BW. We are committed return customers.

    Stayed one night on a long layover in LA. Around 10 minutes drive from LAX and is located right off the highway so it's easy to find. The staff was helpful and very kind. The breakfast is good with plenty of options, some even quite healthy. Though the room was big, clean and had everything you need, there were a few problems: - No lift- Only 2 floors but still, not fun when you have luggage. - Noise- The A/C was noisy, you can hear the cars from the street, you can easily hear everything from the hall (actually woke up in the middle of the night because people simply entered their room, and I'm usually not a light sleeper) which is not so great when the cleaning service starts early in the morning. - Bed- Comfy, but for an unknown reason it shakes every few minutes. Strange. Also, the room door doesn't block the light from the hallway and is located right next to the bed so it's right in your eyes. - Bathroom- The water pressure is poor and not warm enough. - Parking- not free... But seriously, this hotel is good, it simply has a few faults which is okay for its price.

    « Comfortable, convenient, friendly staff = great choice »

    An overnight stay in Los Angeles was a choice instead of battling morning inbound L.A. traffic the day of my meeting. We arrived before the official check in time, but were greeted warmly, and as our reserved room was unavailable, we were upgraded to a Double Queen Suite, which was much appreciated,after a long day of travel. The room was well appointed, the bed comfy, the shower products were fragrant, and the WiFi was responsive, and free. Cell service was spotty though. The breakfast (included) was adequate - bacon, scrambled eggs, assorted cereals and breads, juices, make-it-yourself pancakes, and a yogurt bar, plus fresh fruit and coffee and assorted teas. The Valet service ($12/night) made arriving and leaving very easy,and is strongly recommended - on street parking is sparse, and not a good idea in L.A. Finally, Fred at the front desk is a gracious host, friendly, respectful, and helpful. We will certainly stay here again next time we are in the area.

    We stayed here for 2 nights on a road trip. The location is great as the hotel is only 5 mins from the train line that ran to both downtown LA and Santa Monica Pier so we parked up the car for the duration of the stay & the day train ticket was only $8. Only 10 minutes from the main street where there are multiple restaurants & shops. Breakfast was the usual fruit, yogurt, waffles so perfect to kick start our day but more sitting is needed for breakfast time. It was a bit chaotic each morning. Our room was fine in size for 2 people as we weren't there to just sit in a room! It was modern, clean & comfortable. My parents however had a fab family size room with a sitting room and balcony where we would all relax at night watching the world go by while planning the next days events. The valet parking guy was a little gem & helped us bring our luggage to the rooms.

    Hotel is located in west LA (so its close to major LA attractions and Santa Monica). You certainly need a car though to travel around LA. I did see a train station or metro (not sure) close by but not sure if I would walk (to/from the hotel) in the night (area seemed a bit odd). Front desk very friendly. Also suggested a tour for 79 dollars (promotion?). Room is dated and very basic yet clean and somewhat attractive. I would say this hotel is more for a 1-2 day max stay. Its reasonably priced for LA standards and they do offer breakfast which we didn't honor due to other plans, so I cannot comment. Valet parking was also a bonus. Overall I was happy with my short stay but not sure if I would go back.

    My wife and I spent one night and chose the hotel because of its proximity to an event we were to attend on Olympic Blvd. that evening. Found it agreeable. Room was large and quiet. It was located in a building separate from the main. Large bathroom in good repair. Room had a microwave and refrigerator. Didn't use the TV. Free Wifi worked well. Exercise room was spare, acceptable. Continental breakfast was included, adequate, most notable for its very welcomed inclusion of low fat and non-fat items. Parking was valet and charged at a rate of $12. We ran into a problem with parking and charges thereof. Notably, management was fair and supportive and our parking charge was refunded. The hotel is in a relatively industrial area. It didn't feel unsafe but it also wasn't in a terribly pleasant environment. That said, it is very conveniently placed for visitations in West Los Angeles. Unless you are amenable to eating in strip mall type restaurants, you'll want to have some form of transportation to reach desirable restaurant establishments. We'd stay there again if convenience was our priority.

    I was looking for a hotel between Santa Monica and Sunset Blvd. This one was the least expensive with good ratings and within the distance I wanted. The suites are small, but given the area the price wasn't that bad for the space we received. The restrooms are also tiny, so if you're claustrophobic this might be an issue. The service was great, the breakfast was good and the beds were really nice. I asked for extra pillows when I booked the room and they were in my room when I checked in. Great service and ok price for the location, which makes up for the size of the rooms. Even with the size of the rooms I'd return to this hotel. Especially with the staff being so nice.

Some people have mentioned that the bathroom was small but we did not feel this was true. The breakfast is a nice feature to start the day and was well stocked. There were times that it got busy but we had no problem finding seating and met some nice people at our table! The swimming pool is small but we did not have time to use it. The valet parking was easy to use, the car was readily available. The location is IDEAL for touring Santa Monica, the Third Promenade, LA, restaurants, and Warner Studios easily by car.

Luckily the metro was a short walk from the hotel and we used this to travel to Santa Monica and LA downtown. Santa Monica being our favourite, lovely beach, pier, restaurants and shopping. We found the staff to be very helpful, the room was clean and a good size with fridge and coffee machine. The breakfast was very good, with plenty of choices hot or cold and I loved the pancake machine.

We found location next to train station very handy for getting into LA central or to the Santa Monica beach. Only downside was the limited places to eat in the area, sometimes after a long day shopping/sightseeing/beach it's nice to get back freshen up before eating. We found we had to stay out till after we had eaten before heading back to hotel for the night.

The rooms are comfortable, the staff are pleasant and the breakfast is, again, better than I anticipated. The room rates are actually quite reasonable for what you get. Details: My colleague and I had an appointment in Santa Monica. Finding a hotel in that area that does not break the bank is challenging. I am a Best Western Diamond member and am generally willing to give places in this group a try. When we got off the highway, I was not all that impressed with the area we encountered when looking for the hotel. It was not awful but was a little dicier than I would have preferred. When we arrived, we found valet parking, which was convenient in a sense given the tight parking availability but still not ideal for me (I generally prefer not to depend on someone to fetch me my vehicle when I need to get away in the morning). The street front appearance of the facility was pretty decent. While not elegant, it appeared well kept. The lobby area was nice enough as the counter faced the relatively large sitting/breakfast area. Again, it was well maintained. While I was not crazy about the surroundings, I will note that there were some good restaurant choices within walking distance. While I would have been careful venturing out after dark, I had no qualms about making the walk in the daylight. We chose an Indian place for dinner that was about a ten-minute walk and were very happy with our meal there. We were checked in by a pleasant and friendly front desk agent who assigned me a room on the second level. The rooms were in a separate building just a few paces to the right of the main building. I made my way to my room and found it to my liking. It was laid out a little bit differently. It was oblong with the bed in front of me as I opened the door. There was a narrow piece that extended to the back of the room beside the bathroom. The view from the room was that of the main road. But the feeling was that of a city apartment looking down on an urban neighborhood scene from a corner window. The room was certainly clean and comfortable. The work area was situated in that narrow piece that extended back from the bedding area. It was well configured for evening activity on my laptop. I should note that the WiFi functioned well during my stay. The bathroom was sufficiently spacious with enough room for maneuvering. The fixtures functioned well and the water temperature warmed reasonably quickly when preparing for a shower. The bed was comfortable and the environs were OK with respect to being quiet. The fact that I was at the top of the stairs was not ideal for noise control but it really was not too bad. I was able to get decent quality sleep. The morning breakfast pleasantly surprised me as there were some hot food items along with the standard fruit, breads, juices and coffee. The quality of the fare was not bad and the seating area was sufficiently spacious. The room rates were decent considering the quality of the accommodations. My room cost was about $170. After taxes and fees, the final one-night bill was about $196.50. While not cheap, it compared favorably to the cost of alternatives in the vicinity. All in all, it was a reasonable deal. In general, my expectations for this property were exceeded as the facility was well kept. In spite of the location in which it was situated, it was relatively convenient. My room was quite agreeable, the staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet got me off to a decent start. The room rates were fair given that it was Los Angeles. I would consider staying here again under similar circumstances.

    « Best Stay in LA »

    I come to LA regularly and love the staff of Best Western Royal Palace Inn and Suites. Celeste and Fred lead the roster of great assistance in helping to meet every need.Always courteous and informative. Unhurried and gracious in every aspect of the services they provide. I will continue to stay at this hotel as long as they are there. Also great breakfast; comfortable rooms; very easy walking to public transport and local restaurants, groceries and shopping.

    « Nice Place to Stay near LA »

    Room was clean and looked same as on the website. Lobby staff nice and friendly. Valet really nice and located in front of hotel. Beds were very comfortable. Small lobby/breakfast area. Yes, it is located on a main road, but didn't seem loud to us.

    « Placed in an ideal central location »

    We have stayed here before, so knew what to expect. The hotel is located central to getting to Hollywood, Santa Monica, Downtown LA and everything else in that region. There is a metro stop just at the top of the road (about a 3 minute walk) which takes you to either Downtown LA or Santa Monica and if required you can get into Hollywood from Downtown LA (different line), so easy access without a car (not that I'd go without a car). The hotel staff are very friendly. We were booked into a room and upon entering was already occupied (computer was showing as empty but the previous occupant had added an additional day, which wasn't showing), no problem - we were booked into a 2 queen bedroom, with seperate lounge and small bathroom, but were ?upgraded to a 1 bedroomed suite with a bigger living area (which included a sleeper sofa) and a very large bathroom, including a whirlpool bath (which was very nice). We were located at the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor, so was very quiet. Only downside was the loud air conditioning unit in the living area, which had to be turned off at night as couldn't sleep on. However, the coolness also did not extend into the bedroom without having the door open. If the door was closed it got unbearably hot, so had to leave it open. The breakfast was fab, it included eggs (boiled and scrambled, bacon and sausages), a pancake maker (scrummy), cereals, pastries (various), bagels, waffles, bread for toasting and yoghurt, all included in the price. Housekeeping came daily and was kept very clean and tidy. Had everything we required for our 5 night stay and would continue to use this hotel when staying in this area. I know this hotel gets a few negative reviews, but I would honestly recommend.

    « Great Staff and Location but facility average »

    Hotel is located in a great location, short drives to Santa Monica, Venice, Hollywood and Beverly Hills. The hotel staff from the valet to the front desk were top notch. The rooms were a good size, clean, and with a separate seating area. However even though the lobby seemed to be renovated the rooms were older and somewhat outdated. They do not have central a/c, only a window unit that blows directly on the person sleeping closest to the window. Please make sure to request a room on the back side, as the main road has heavy traffic and we had to run the fan all night to muffle as much of the noise as possible (in addition to ear plugs!). We were in a middle room and not able to pick up the wifi, which we were told is stronger on either end (staff advised that this was being addressed). The free hot breakfast was delicious and lived up to some of the other reviews on this.

    « Great find »

    This is a really nice hotel just a couple minutes off the 405 and I-10 interchange near Culver City in LA. Two things really stood out for me at this hotel - the staff and the rooms. Can't say enough about the staff - from the guys who man the 24-hour valet service (fast, courteous, and yes they will get your car for you at 3:30 a.m. if you need it) to the front desk (I wish I remembered the guy's name, I know he was pretty new to the hotel but he went out of his way to help me with recommendations and directions to some area restaurants. All of his recommendations turned out to be great places, so even though he was new, he obviously had gotten to know the area pretty well already). The rooms/suites are very large - nice sized bedroom, separate sitting room with refrigerator, microwave and TV, ours even had a balcony overlooking the pool and spa area. The bathrooms are smallish - really kind of like a walk in closet with a toilet at one end and a shower at the other - but it was super clean and everything worked well. Very good Wi-Fi and very good complimentary breakfast. The location is great - just minutes to Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, and real close to freeway interchanges. Even though Sepulveda is a very busy street, we did not notice any road noise in our room at all. Great stay at a great little hotel.

    The hotel is fine with good service and a helpfull staff. Their breakfast is very good with lots of different things to eat. However, the room we stayed in, had a very noisy air condition, which we had to turn off while sleeping. The room then turnes very hot. Otherwise it is good situated and highly recommended.

    « Under trained staff »

    This hotel has great rooms and a good breakfast. They charge for valet parking for each room. The staff is not trained very well and does not apologize for not being trained fully. They also charge your credit card before you let them know that you are ready to check out or that you are changing your payment type.

    « Clean and Tidy »

    I stayed here as it was virtually next door to where I was heading for a business meeting. The room was clean and cozy, if a bit bland and small. The a/c works well, allows you to set a temp, but is an old through-the-wall unit which tends to be noisy. The bedding was new and the bed was comfortable. There was a flat screen tv, refrigerator, and microwave, and a coffee maker (with Wolfgang Puck coffee...nice touch)The bathroom in my King Bed room was enormous (almost as big as the bedroom), although most of it was empty space. This was a missed opportunity as there was ample room for a double vanity, etc. There were plenty of soaps and other convenience items. Breakfast was tasty with plentiful offerings. Valet parking cost $12 (which reviews only a few weeks old had stated was free...it is not any longer). It's not luxurious, but it's an excellent value.

    We arrived after long trip from Norcal at 11am, we got checked in early and started to relax! When making rez I was told parking was free. Nope new deal 12 a day to park and they valet for you and keep your keys (not good when you have to get other stuff from car) we worked around it tho. If you go .5 mi south you will find Vons market nice mellow walk. Don't go at night tho:) Frig and micro was a plus with 3 kids. The suite which was very reasonable had a separate couch bed with door that closes (good for the person that snores :) Breakfast is early and very NICE. The pool is heated but small and the jacuzzi is about 2 inched deep and terribly small. Loved the private pool area. The office staff and the valets are very professional and accommodating... Will def be back!

    « Convenient location »

    Stayed for 2 nights, picked this location as it is a block from the Metro rail. You Can be in downtown Santa Monica, or at the beach in 15 minutes, or anywhere in downtown LA, Hollywood, Universal studios with no traffic or parking hassles. Room was very nice, clean, comfy bed, small fridge. Small pool area was fine for relaxing after running all day. Breakfast was fine, eggs, sausage, fruit yogurt, pancake maker. Staff was all very friendly and helpful. The only negative was there was no local information in the lobby like you would expect. Staff had 1 map of Santa Monica. Also LA Metro info isn't very good either. The rail opened to Santa Monica a month ago, but some of their own maps don't even show it at all. Need to have more brochures available with routes, like in London.

    « Pretty Good for the price in Los Angeles »

    LA is expensive, but this place was pretty good. it was clean and comfortable with friendly staff and valets; walking distance from restaurants; quiet. The room had the old, stale cigarette smoke odor common with older accommodations. The bed was comfortable in spite of old sheets.

    « My reservation disappeared »

    I am a front desk staff member of a different Best Western in southern California. I'm disappointed to say that this hotel shames the franchise in terms of organization and guest service. I called to reserve a room around 4am at the employee rate, which was not advertised through the website. The night worker who claimed to be a 4 year team member at that location advised me not to worry - he would enter the reservation manually in the hotel reservation system. He took down all my information and confirmed that I'd be checking in that evening. Around 6pm the same day, as I was driving to the hotel, I called the front desk to confirm my reservation. The desk clerk told me she could not find it. I reasoned with her and asked to speak with a manager, but she told me there was no way to immediately reach anyone besides herself. When a half decent hotel makes a mistake and it's as shameful as a reservation disappearing, they'll go far out of their way to make it up. This time, I'm afraid the hotel only offered me $20 off the rate (still $60+ more than my original reservation) and without the opportunity to speak to a higher authority, I chose to decline. Without even stepping inside the hotel, Best Western Royal Palace Inn & Suites made a lasting impression on what customer service shouldn't be.

    Stayed here before a few years ago. Still a nice place, central location close to the highway and the beach. I had a large room with two beds, plenty of space and an additional lounge with a second TV, fridge and microwave. Overall pretty quiet and comfortable. The bathroom is very small however, not for claustrofobic people and the breakfast is best taken elsewhere. There is parking (valet) and a swimming pool. Wifi is free and fast. If they upped the breafast, this would be a winner.

    « Pluses and Minuses Here »

    Let me start by saying that I would stay here again, despite my list of minuses at this hotel. It is a good value. And there is much that is good here: - Free valet parking - Friendly staff - Adequate free breakfast offerings (cereal, fruit, yogurt, bagels, scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, etc.) - Very clean - Fridge and microwave in the room. - Free Wi-Fi (although we had to sign in more often than we liked) The not so good: - You need to climb stairs, even if you are on the first floor of rooms (which is half a flight of stairs up from the lobby). For many people including myself, this is not a problem, but some people have trouble with stairs, especially with bags, so I thought I should note this. - The 2-bed suite we stayed in had the smallest bathroom I've every seen in a hotel. Large people would have trouble there, I think. (See photos) - The A/C in the bedroom was the older type that does not let you indicate a temp (just hotter or cooler). It cycled on and off all night long and I found it a little loud. I personally found the pillows and bed slightly uncomfortable but I know that is such a matter of preference that others might be very happy with such. Overall, after looking at hotel prices in the area, I'm happy I found this one and, like I said, I would stay here again.

    We were very pleased with service and comfort at the Best Western Royal Place Inn & Suites in Culver City, California. We stayed 3 nights there in late May 2016. The room, though somewhat small, was clean and the bathroom was clean and spacious. Fred at the front desk was very friendly, had a great personality and was very helpful to us. The only problem of any consequence was parking that we had difficulty moving in and out as the lot was in a basement type location. We will certainly stay there again.

    « Best Staff Of Any Hotel We Have Stayed In »

    We travel frequently and the staff of this hotel is the best of any we have encountered, especially Fred at the front desk.He went out of his way to help us with various matters.We had a suite with two queen beds, a separate living area with a second TV, and a balcony. The beds were very comfortable.Our room was on the back side on the top floor and was very quiet except for early one morning when the people next door were playing the radio or TV extremely loud. Be advised that the living area has no air conditioning. It was cool enough for us but then the temperature was only in the 70's most of our stay. The breakfast was ample with fresh fruit(bananas, apples, and oranges), three cereals, eggs, etc. I was not impressed with the pancake maker. A waffle maker would be better. The hotel location is convenient to Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica and other attractions. The only negative of this hotel was our bathroom, which was extremely tiny and had only a shower.(ample size) When both of us were in there, it was a very tight squeeze and we are normal size people.We had two large closets, which took up space better served by enlarging the bathroom..After the first night Fred offered to move us to a room with a larger bathroom and a tub but we would not have the living area, which we were using daily. We would definitely stay here again in spite of the tiny bathroom.

    Hotel is centrally located but HEY, this is LA and you need to rent a car... 1) For a 3.5 star hotel, I am impressed. All the facilities are clean and work. 2) The men at the Valet service are very polite and all speak English. 3) Fred at the front desk is very professional and is a gem. 4) Room is good value and large 5) You need to add oatmeal to the breakfast and get better looking bananas. Pay attention to the detail. People notice these things. Also please use real bacon and not the frozen strips. Again the detail. Over all, with one exception (noted below) I would recommend you and will return. Exception is the gym: 1) The sauna is a waste of space. Your clientele is older folks and middle level business professionals. They are NOT interested in a sauna. This is very European and unless you can show me that 33% of your guests come from Scandinavia I recommend you rip it out and install 2-3 gym stations in that room. I would do this yesterday.

    « A Pleasant Surprise »

    While I grew up in the West LA area, this hotel was not familiar to me. However, it was a pleasant surprise, particularly its proximity to the new light rail station. The facility itself is a little dated, but makes up for it with a very convenient location and attentive staff. Valet parking is a must and very well run. I would recommend this hotel as a great value to stay at a reasonable price in a very high priced area.

We walked to dinner around the corner, less than a half mile. Santa Monica Pier is also only about 4 miles away. The room was OK, decent size and clean. Your average value room I would say.

Large comfortable room - we had a suite which had a separate sitting room with TV which was really nice. We also had a balcony with chairs and a small table which we utilized. Santa Monica Pier, 3rd St and the beach are very close. My one and only compliant would be the size of the teeny tiny bathroom. Our suite had 3 closets and I feel they should have expanded the bathroom into one of those closets. This wasn't enough of an inconvenience to downgrade my rating though. Staff was also very nice. Mandatory valet parking which was never a problem and very easy also. Typical continental breakfast - cereal, danish, pancakes.

    I was responsible for choosig a hotel to meet up with another family for a tour of UCLA with our high school kids. I choose this property based on the reviews, room description, price and location. After a sleepless night the night before, my heart sank when we arrived at the property. The exterior is not very appealing. However, my spirits lifted with the warm welcome by the valet/bellman and front desk. The room was much better than anticipated. New renovation, nice decor, two queens and a separate room with a king size pull-out and a little deck, small refrigerator and coffee pot. Great for a family, alhough the bathroom was very small. My teens liked the room alot. Deck was nice for sipping a glass of wine or coffee. Breakfast was good and parking and breakfast are included in the price. The pool is very small and not much space around it, but good for kids and a refreshing dip. Easy access to the coast, UCLA and central LA. I would definately recommend this hotel and would return.

    Stayed here as a couple February 27 to March 1st and had a very pleasant experience. The location is great and it was very easy to find. Free vallet parking, with the drivers being incredibly courteous and efficient. We were checked in by a gentleman named Angel and he was thoughtful and listened to our concerns. We received an upgrade to a room with a King bed and bathtub. The room was very spacious with a large bathroom. I hate cramped bathrooms and this room certainly was large enough! The room was very clean and maid service always restocked/cleaned the rooms perfectly. Complimentary breakfast had many options that will satisfy your needs (didn't let me down as a vegetarian). The lady that would keep the breakfast area stocked was so kind as well. Not much road noise at all if you had the windows closed at night. There was some partying going on somewhere the first night we stayed which was loud but I realized the next morning one of the windows was open. No noise the next few nights. Free Wifi! We truly struggled finding a nice hotel in this area that was CLEAN and affordable. Thankfully Best Western saved the day :) Thank you to the staff for fantastic service and the hotel is clearly managed well. Booked through hotwire.

    We recently spent a week at the Best Western Royal Palace Inn and Suites at 2528 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles. Although the hotel is currently under renovation, that did not impact our experience. The front desk employee named Fred was terrific. He was warm and welcoming each day. He provided us with valuable information concerning eateries as well as markets. The suite was two rooms with a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The room was clean and in the main building. Complimentary valet parking was a nice perk. A full buffet breakfast was provided daily with pancakes, fruit, yogurts, juices, breakfast sandwiches, and assorted cereals and pastries. Herbert was one of the valets who always greeted us with a smile. We are looking forward to returning to this property in a few months and seeing Fred and Herbert once again.

    We have been coming to this BW motel for at least 10 years . It has always been a pleasure starting with the welcoming staff, especially Fred at the front desk. As seniors we request a first floor and we've always gotten one. The rooms are always clean and inviting. The breakfasts are very good. Fred is the one we connect with to make reservations as he knows us and makes everything go smoothly. He is efficient, warm and respectful. We come at least twice every year.

    « Fantastic Service »

    Fred at the front desk made our stay a breeze. Very accommodating to our timeline. Came for a one night business trip and needed everything to run smoothly and Fred and the entire staff ensured that. Definitely plan to book again next time I'm back.

    « Best hotel, best hotel manager!!! »

    I have been staying here for over a year now. I travel often to the area. The hotel is nice and the rooms are clean. Staff is very friendly. My favorite part of my visit is dealing with Fred at the front desk (I believe he's the manager). He calls me by name and makes me feel at home every time. I've seen him do the same for other guests. Always goes the extra mile. I will definitely keep coming back!

    « Couldn't be more helpful »

    The room was a good size for us, having the tv room allowed the four of us to put our suitcases out of the way. The bathroom was a little small. If they are renovating I would suggest putting in a pedestal sink, smaller mirror, more hanging space for the towels. I think this would give the tiny bathroom more room. Fred was amazing and couldn't be more helpful. Booked everything for us. Though I was disappointed to find out that on our last tour he was getting a good price for us at the cost of his commission and the tour wasn't that good. I would certainly stay here again. Fred deserves a raise.

    « Great place »

    Very clean & spacious room & bathroom, nice TV with lots of channels super comfortable bed & fluffy pillows!!! At check in we received a bag with bottled water & snacks, valet parking free of charge. Staff very customer oriented. The only bad mark was the "Shower area" very small : (

    « A Good Inn just got even better »

    Love the updates to this BW Inn! We stay here at least twice a year when we visit our family. We always love the staff here. They are friendly, welcoming and helpful. Fred is a great manager! It was always clean and comfortable but now it is even better. They recently redid the lobby and all of the rooms. Breakfast is always very good and the free valet parking in an LA location is excellent!

    « Stay here and use the saved $ to buy a great dinner! »

    Centrally located, with free valet parking. We were in the back and upstairs in the C building, which avoids footsteps overhead and was quiet. Comfortable bed, and room has a microwave, and a completely empty small refrigerator, so one could prepare easy meals here. There's even a serviceable table for eating. Included is a continental breakfast of standard quality. Our room allowed adjustment of the temperature down to 63.5 degrees, much lower than in many fancy hotels, which is pleasant as we enjoy sleeping in a cool environment. Service is sweet. Two downsides are the loud fan in the bathroom that comes on when you flip the bathroom light on (we generally kept the light off), and the tiny shower, which approximates the size of the ones in France. Price is very attractive for Santa Monica. The money we saved would have paid for a great dinner!

    « Outstanding customer service »

    I arrived at a LAX early in the morning and had requested a (non-guaranteed) early check in so i could prepare for an evening meeting. When I got to the hotel at 10 AM the desk clerk recognized my name and had my room ready. Because the hotel parking is limited to the number of rooms, there is a 24 hour parking valet service . The cheery disposition of the valet, who also carried my bags and oriented me to the room was also a day brightener. The room was spacious, quiet, clean comfortable.

    « Nice experience »

    This hotel was very clean, had very polite staff members and was located in a place that was convenient to me in West Los Angeles. The breakfast bar was better than most I've experienced. It was a bit pricier than I usually pay, but it's LA, so I guess that comes with the territory. I would definitely stay there again.

    « Noisey unattractive hotel »

    Good location to our son's home in W LA but the hotel is not well run and the experience was less than satisfactory because of noise levels from hallway and adjacent room. We will not stay in this hotel again even thought it is convenient. There is another Best Western farther west where we've stayed before and find it superior to this location.

    « Good service »

    « Warm & welcoming staff - nice, clean hotel - Free Wi-Fi »

    Check-in was quick and painless, I checked in during evening hours (dark outside). The walk to my room in the building next to the "main" hotel building was not welcomed, but it was okay as very close & since a hotel employee, Valet, was outside, not too concerned about safety. No elevator not fun, but at least only one flight of stairs. Room was nice & clean, comfortable temp and easy to adjust. Bathroom was very clean - all good with towels, toiletries, hair dryer, shower, etc. Good sized bathroom. The room had two folding racks for luggage plus a little ?table? that I put my suitcase on. Beds very comfortable. Great to have fridge & microwave, plus unexpected large area with table & chairs. Complementary breakfast did not have the scrambled eggs & breakfast meats I was expecting, but hot oatmeal & cold hard boiled eggs were okay. They did have hot ready-to-go Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches as well as pancake maker, fruit, juices, etc. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful from housekeeping to the front desk. The free Wi-Fi worked well. I would stay here again.

    « Convenient location. Very comfortable. »

    The hotel has a very good location for our trips to Santa Monica, Muscle and Venice Beaches, in addition to Hollywood, Burbank, downtown LA and Newport Beach. The rooms were clean and comfortable, though the bathrooms are small. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the free valet parking and the included breakfast. Our group was very happy with this hotel.

    « Not a bad hotel. »

    I stayed at this hotel from Friday, October 23 to Monday, November 2. This wasn't a bad hotel. The rooms were clean and immaculate. The staff there was very professional, kind, helpful, and catered to my ever need. And the breakfast was just fantastic! They had hard-boiled eggs, cereals, fresh fruit, breakfast sandwiches, sweet rolls, and orange juice. It saved me money from eating breakfast out. The room also had a huge bathroom. I have never stayed at a hotel with a bathroom like this before. There was plenty of room in the tub and it even had water jets as well. The only issues that I had with the hotel were these. I have difficulty walking due to arthritis in both of my knees. In fact, it was too difficult for me to walk up to Pico Blvd. to catch the Santa Monica bus. (The Culver City bus also goes by the hotel as well, and stops at Pico Blvd.). I ended up taking a cab to and from the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills (where I attended weekend Mass), and coming back from Hollywood. Luckily, my brother from Atlanta came out to L.A., and he rented a car to take us around the area. They are also building a Metro rail line between downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica; but it's not going to open up until next year (2016). The Starline Tours bus also picked me up in front of the hotel on Saturday, October 24 to take me their Santa Monica bus terminal to take the L.A City/Hollywood tour. The other issue is their swimming pool. It is located in the back of the hotel. The water was not only too cold, the shade blocks out the sun. It is also filthy on the bottom and it needs to be cleaned every day. I even found a couple of dead bees in there. I had to take a bath every time that I got out of the pool just to get rid of any of the germs on my body. They also had a jacuzzi and it wasn't that bad. Otherwise, this wasn't a bad hotel. I may consider staying again at a Best Western the next time that I take a trip out of Philadelphia.

    « Small bathroom in suite »

    Supposed to stay 14 nights in suite but only stayed 2. Bathroom was too small. Only maybe 18 inches clearance between door & sink. Likewise between sink & shower and sink & toilet area. Also, sitting room did not have A/C and got too hot to sit there. In addition, they were doing a major renovation in the lobby, which meant removing the ice and vending machines. Listings failed to mention these issues.

    « Nice Stay »

    This Hotel was in a great location, the Staff was great! All folks were friendly and helpful. The furniture in the room was a bit dated but the rooms were clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget and looking for a nice place.

    « comfortable, clean and affordable »

    I'm very satisfied with Best Western Hotels. This one has a very at ease energy to it. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. In addition to bedroom portion, the rooms have a sitting room and porch adding to the space. Plus, free parking. A gem.

    « Pleased »

    Friendly, well-spoken staff were helpful with my arrival, finding the two places I was visiting, and with my departure. Bed was comfortable and the facility and rooms were spotless. Easy access to the Westwood area activities, though on a very busy street.

    « Good L.A. value »

    A good-value hotel near L.A. hotspots such as Beverly Hills, Westwood and Century City. just off the 405 freeway, which also makes it a relatively easy commute to/from the airport. Recently remodeled. The free valet parking is a definite plus.

    « Dated and worn hotel in a dingy area, but great service »

    What is important to you? If it is all about appearances, don't stay here - the place is dingy and worn, there is no elevator, the bathroom in the room is incredibly cramped, the surrounding area is rundown and probably sketchy at night... but if you care about service, kind and friendly staff, proximity to the highway and a reasonable price, by all means, try it. This hotel was a 10 minute walk from our business meeting and so location was critical for us; the bed was comfortable and in the end, it was a good stay.

    « Highly recommend »

    The staff was most helpful. The accommodations were clean and pleasant and well furbished. I would recommend this hotel highly. The breakfast was more than sufficient. The decor was attractive and welcoming and quiet for sleeping.

    « Close to Getty Center; very urban area; free valet parking only »

    My husband and I chose this hotel because it was six miles from the Getty Center art museum, and also close to the Burbank Bob Hope airport. The first impression of the hotel is that it is two stories tall with no parking lot or grounds. There is a sign out front announcing "Complimentary Valet Parking." You have to take this option. There is only room for 3-4 cars to unload in front of the hotel. Those cars need to get out of the way quickly, or nobody else will be able to pull into the hotel. In front of the hotel there is a very small underground parking garage that would hold about eight cars. Maneuvering into the underground lot would be very difficult, so we were glad the employees took care of that. That small lot must be a staging lot, because in the morning, the employees brought our rental car from an off-site location. We were glad we were traveling light and did not have much luggage to take to our room. One of the parking valets/bellmen helped us with our luggage. We were grateful for this, because our room was on the second floor and there was no elevator. The hallway to our room looked a bit narrow and worn. The building is normally locked; you use your room card key to gain access. The hotel seems to consist of a series of two-story buildings spread out along the Sepulveda Blvd. Our room was in the back away from the street. We heard no street noise. The room was comfortable. The bed was very good. The bars of soap were bigger than average. We liked the table/desk with two chairs. There was a mirrored closet where we found two folding luggage racks. I used one and my husband used a short, sturdy table instead. We did not use the TV or coffee maker. There was no upholstered easy chair. The view out the window was of the adjoining building. The WIFI worked fine. We had a single login for all four of our devices. Do not stay at this hotel if you want trees, bushes, pretty landscaping or outdoor seating. We decided to walk to an early dinner at one of the many restaurants on Pico Blvd. The hotel provided a list of nearby restaurants. It took us five minutes to walk to Pico Blvd. We walked past a party supply store, a Dollar Store, a lumberyard/garden store, and then underneath the freeway overpass. We were glad all these businesses were open. Normal-looking families were walking on the street. We did not see any drug-users, drunks or homeless people. We walked to dinner around 6 pm. I would not want to be a single woman taking this walk late at night. The restaurants and businesses on Pico Blvd. seem to be situated right next to each other, up against the side walk. The area is urban, not suburban. I do not have a clear memory, but I think the only parking is along the street. We had a good dinner at Bossa Nova Brazilian restaurant, which is an 8-10 minute walk from the hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast. Breakfast is served in the hotel lobby, which is outfitted with tables and chairs. I had a Jimmy Dean egg and sausage breakfast sandwich. The sandwich was warm and packaged in its original plastic wrapper. It was better than the weird scrambled eggs we normally get at chain hotels. There was also fruit, yogurt, pastry, etc. When we drove from the hotel in the morning, about six blocks away near the freeway we saw a homeless man sleeping on a bench. I might have preferred a prettier less-urban location for our hotel, but we would probably have paid a lot more.

    We came to LA to visit our daughter who graduated from UCLA and now works in the area. This hotel is close to her apartment and very convenient. We were able to spend quality time and have her show us some of the sights that she has come to know. The area if you ignore the traffic has it all in amount of activities that are available.

    « Gotta Love LA »

    My wife and I spent almost 2 weeks at this hotel and I promise you that you really get a feel for a place after that length of time. We had 3 days in New York City then flew to LA for the sun shine. The Hotel is perfect for those of you wanting somewhere to lay your head after a long day in the sun, of surfing on the beach. It is close to LAX, close to the Mall, the Beach is a short drive away as is Rodeo drive, Hollywood sign all the good stuff. The hotel is clean, the staff attentive and helpful, the valet service gents are fantastic and make you feel welcome every day. My wife and I will be booking this exact hotel again in 2017 for a week. I have not one complaint, it was exactly what we needed at the end of a long day in the sun... Well done all the staff at the Best Western Royal Palace

    « Most Welcoming!! »

    We stayed for a week after spending some time in New York. The hotel catered for our needs and the facilities were sufficient. Fred at receiption was very welcoming and always accomodating when it comes to information and assistance. We arrived very early before check in and we were welcomed immediately. The room was a good size and the amenities were comfortable and functional. I was very pleased with the microwave as this helped during those times we brought food back. I have no fault to report -- the hotel requires updating but some renovation is taking place. I will recommend and definitely visit again when I travel to LA.
