    « If you want your room left unlocked by housekeeping go here »

    Just got back from a stay at this hotel! It was awful! First off the first pictures show a jacuzzi which was out of order the entire stay. Ok, so no big deal....but we checked in late on a Thurs. I was staying with my mom and daughter. Friday morning I took my daughter down to get breakfast and my mom discovered that the door didn't lock behind me. She messed with it and got it to lock. She informed the front desk and we left for the day at 8 am. We did not return until 11 pm and when we did our door had been left unlocked since the maid service had been there. Obviously we were not happy so my mom went to the front desk and they sent maintenance to fix it. They messed with it but it wasn't fixed all of the way so we basically couldn't use maid service while we were there. They gave us some song and dance about no refund since we had prepaid. The trip was in celebration of my daughter's birthday so I didn't mess with anything at the time. I have since attempted to call the manager and have not been able to talk to him. I'm super upset and don't think anyone should stay there!!!

    « Avoid room 303 - tiny room »

    Service was great and check-in was smooth. I was impressed by the breakfast for a Best Western - eggs, sausage, make your own Belgium waffles, fruit, yogurt, bagels, etc. price was reasonable. There's a mall and Costco nearby, but almost nothing in walking distance. Definitely recommend this place if you're looking for something cheap and clean.

    « A nested quiet stay »

    We reserved at this Best Western since we were still doing the touristy thing in L. A. When I checked it, I qas greeted by Bobbi who was very friendly and helpful. She explained wifi info, breakfast times and pretty much covered everything without me having to ask. I like upon observation of the hotel, that the maids were cleaning the parking garage, surrounding quarters and overall made the difference in maintaining the upkeep of the hotel. When we arrived at our room 118 the room was cozy and inviting. We decided to plop our the beds and turn on the tube to watch shows. The bed and pillows are comfy for my liking. We had a balcony area but I do not think you can open and lodge for a moment. The only downfall was that the indoor hot tub was closed and I was hoping to take advantage of it. The room as quiet and the room temperature was good as well. Next day we rise and like the fact that they switch the hot breakfast menu daily which is nice. Bobbi was overall great as well as the rest of the hotel cleaning crew. Would definitely stay here again if needing to.

    « Visit Family »

    I love this hotel this is my favorite place for to stay when we visit family. They save my favorite room for me anytime we come. They have a little breakfast in the morning. They have coffee and tea and water in the office 24hours. Dan is great i try to talk to him and a few others for making my reservations or checking in. I like being on the 3rd floor. The parking lot is under ground. They only take cars under 6feet. if you are taller you need to park on street.

    « Great breakfast! »

    The hotel was under renovation but headed in the right direction. The floors need to be replaced badly but everything else was nice. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. The internet worked well. Ample parking and easy access to the freeway. The very best part of our stay was the free continental breakfast! It was AMAZING! Not your run of the mill bagels and cereal, although they had that too. Each morning there were 3 hot selections.. they were different each day and DELICIOUS! They also offered cereals, pastries, waffle station, and instant breakfasts to choose from. The ladies that served the breakfast did not stop moving.. they were awesome. The food was amazing and everything was kept well-stocked and remarkably clean. Great job! We would definitely stay here again.

    « Markland BW in Monterey Park »

    Markland BW is an average hotel located in an awkward location with terrible entrance to the front of the hotel. It is so closer to the intersection, it is easy to cause accident. The sign of the hotel is not visible until you get to the intersection and you try to turn into the hotel property.

    « Comfortable Stay »

    The room and bed was nicely kept and comfortable. The eggs at breakfast were "fake" with bits of spam- not good. However the pumpkin spice waffle was excellent. The dining room was nice and plenty of room for guests, even with a large group that were visiting from out of the country.

    « Restful stay »

    I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is doing business in the downtown LA area or anywhere around the LA area. the staff was awesome very professional and courteous and they went above and beyond their duties. if you want to go there just to relax I recommend this place also because they have an indoor Spa and a indoor gym and it's close to grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurants around the area in a mile to 10 miles radius. also the beds are nice and comfortable, clean and affordable. They did this in the bathroom with some of the towels. we thought it was pretty cool the way he did it.

    « Clean, spacious and good breakfast! »

    I loved the hot breakfast. The bathtub was huge and the room is a great size. There were lots of pillows and different firmness on each of them. The hotel staff was very inviting. The hotel is just off the freeway, making it a great location.

    « Friendly Staff, Good Rate »

    Best Western Markland is the only hotel in this area that offers a very reasonable rate with a full complimentary of an average hotel.The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is convenience. It's easy to access to highway and a short distance to a shopping strip.

    « Great stay here! Definitely recommend! »

    This is a great place to stay! We were there for 6 nights and were very happy with our time there. The hotel is very clean (they even mopped the attached parking garage daily!) and we loved the free breakfast they had there each morning from 6-10am. Usually it was scrambled eggs (sometimes with peppers, sometimes plain and once with sausage), a meat option - bacon always was gone by 9am and would then switch to sausage, cheesy potatoes and hard boiled eggs. Of course there was pastries, toast, make your own waffles, cereal, etc. it was really good every day. The women that ran that room were very quick to keep it clean. Front desk staff were easy to talk to if we had a question, efficient at the check in and out processes and overall very helpful. We used the hot tub several times (it was too hot for me and sometimes had a weird smell which was maybe from the heat or chemicals), but again was kept very clean. They have an exercise room, which we didn't use but saw them cleaning many times when we were on our way out. Overall, we were very pleased with the hotel, the staff, cleanliness and value for our money. Spent $600 for 6 nights/7 days.

    « Good Place »

    All employees are treated very kindly. Breakfast is served easy-to-eat. But there is a little bit of distance in the middle of the street, a little bit of facility, and it feels old. It is a good place to receive a quiet and friendly service.

    « EXCELLENT FRONT DESK STAFF & Great Overall Experience »

    The following is a very detailed review of the hotel. We had two rooms at this hotel and enjoyed our visit. Our party requested remodeled rooms and were placed on the third floor. PROS: Love, love, love front desk staff (Jazmine and others ? better than high end employees) Clean and comfortable Nice size rooms Extended size mini refrigerator Nice Breakfast Options Ample Free Parking Vending Machines for Drinks and Snacks Fitness Center open 24 hours Easy to find off the freeway Onsite Restaurant Value of Price for room and amenities is excellent CONS: If you are sensitive to sound, you can hear freeway from most of the rooms You can hear noise from neighboring rooms and hallway Complimentary Breakfast served daily from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. This includes waffle station, 4 ounce yogurt, dry cereal, hot oatmeal and toppings, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea and hot chocolate, juice (apple juice, passion orange guava, cranberry and orange juice), scrambled eggs, sausage (patty and link) seasoned potatoes with cheese, hard boiled eggs, Danish and muffin options, toast, croissants and bagel options and whole fruit. I would definitely return here, as the price of rooms in comparison to others in the Los Angeles area is quite reasonable.

    « Room is big and clean. But the sound insulation is very bad »

    Room is big and clean. The bed is comfortable. Staff who helped us check-in is polite and helpful. However, since the room is situated on lobby floor facing the restaurant, , privacy is not enough and the sound insulation is very bad, can hear people walking outside and upstairs. Very disturbing during sleeping.

    « Not so good anymore. »

    Spent 3 nights at this hotel. Staff very accommodating & friendly, however hotel itself is in need of some TLC. I went to have a bath & discovered a few things completely unacceptable to me. There is a lot of paint chips, tub in serious need of reglazing, walls are paper-thin & u can hear people in next room very clearly. We were put in a room right beside the ice machine which was extremely loud in the morning when people we're getting ice. I'm not sure if it was staff, but it was every morning around the same time. Requested upper floor but ended up on the 2nd floor & awoken every morning by people walking around above us. Overall this trip wasn't the greatest. I don't think I slept much. Not sure will return to this location. Not worth the 120.00 a night we paid.

    « Property a little run down, beds are comfortable, ok for the price! »

    The property was under repair or remodel and kind of messy on the outside. The price is very reasonable. There were ants around the small refrigerator and we did mention it to the clerk upon check out.

    « Clean and Friendly staff »

    Hotel is very clean, older but nice. Staff is always extremely nice and helpful. When I travel to Los Angeles, CA for business I am working downtown and this location is very convenient. Also, the location to the mall and good food makes it a very desirable hotel for me to stay.

    « Perfect Hotel for Business »

    Was everything I needed for a business trip. Loved the living space in the room for working and the powerful WiFi made it easy to get work done. Even made it down to the hot tub for a long soak after my day of work. Not a lot of restaurants close to the hotel, but I used the "Door Dash" app recommended by the font desk and I got a great meal delivered in about 45 minutes.

    « Budget Accommodation, Tired Hotel. »

    For sure, fantastic proximity to downtown Los Angeles. Great parking. Some staff are friendly but majority basically gave the cold shoulder. There was a young lady at the front desk whose name I can't quite remember, but she was Fantastic!!! Great service from her. She only works the morning shift. Literally next door to a petrol station, Walmart is no more than a 6 to 8 minute drive Northbound of the hotel. Not very family oriented and safety is of grave concern as it pertains to kids. Hotel literally siting on a main road. If kids get away from parents, they can run directly on that road towards the front of the hotel. My room I was told would have been an upgraded room because it was recently renovated but if that was renovated, I don't want to see the unrenovated rooms. Found German roaches in my bath room. The hotel was actually in the middle of renovations when we got there. You could see the yellow caution tape blocking off certain areas of the hotel. Quite disappointing for a California hotel. Feels like somewhere a truck driver would stay after being on the road for over 18hrs. The buffet breakfast was ok, I must admit that. Not much of a variety though. Sitting area for breakfast...way too small. My mom and I on the first day had to wait for persons to finish having breakfast for us to dine. And too make it worst, if you are late by a minute for breakfast, you're locked out!!! Yes they literally lock the breakfast area. Not going to return there...sadly and not going to recommend

    « Stay away from this hotel »

    We arrived at 11:30PM and couldn't find parking. There is a pub in front of the hotel and was very loud. The staff at the hotel told me that guests in that pub took most of the parking spots so we had to park at the gas station next door. They will move our car once there is parking spots available. This is very distracting especially we are all very tired. The room was not clean. The sheet in bed is almost black color and quite disgusting. Another annoying thing is that the air conditioner in room is very loud and we didn't get good sleep.

    « Great value for price »

    Had a good overall experience. I was really pleased with the room; it was clean and looked nice. The lobby/elevator was a bit dated but the room was great. The front entrance was blocked off because of construction so you have to enter from the underground parking which wasn't an issue. Great breakfast options and I loved the waffle machine.

    « Not Good »

    I was really disappointed with this hotel, its stuck in the middle of nowhere with freeways all around it, the room we had smelt of damp and the window where the shower is was disgusting and dirty, looked like it hadn't been cleaned for ages, i wish i got a photo of it, we had to ask for another room, it was so noisy on the one night we stayed in the room because of the traffic. The air con was so loud we couldn't sleep and the windows don't open at all, not that we would open the window because it would of been even louder than it was. The scenery was also crap, we saw freeways and a petrol station.

    excellent hotel with a caring professional staff. Rooms were clean, the fitness room is top notch and the Jacuzzi was an added plus, or necessity, after a long day. What a pleasure. Freeway close, minutes to downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena, close to shopping and entertainment.

    « Good- will be excellent once the renovations are done; close to a lot of attractions »

    Good location, but the renovations lessen the esthetic of the facility. Could use a deep clean in the elevator as it had and odor. The Internet was terrible. Maybe, have basic cable but uber fast Wifi for streaming. Most peeps have tablets and smartphones, right? Nowadays, we have multiple subscriptions to steaming services. The hot breakfast was on point. The beds were comfy and the towels were soft and fluffy. The toiletries were awesome as they are eco friendly and cruelty free. If trying for eco-conscious philosophy, it would worth the investment to put dispenser in bathroom instead of the plastic travel size containers, you know? May be worth considering R&D on that point and put up signs to give guests options to opt out of washing bed linens for multiple stays to conserve H2O and energy. Overall, we would stay again.

    « General »

    This hotel is OK, but there were some areas under construction, the rooms after 25 will not have any air conditioning of the hallway, therefore you better stay room number from 1 to 14. Ther is no restaurant nearby this hotel you better looking for Google map for the hotel

    This Best Western is in the middle of nowhere but it is fairly close to the freeway. The place is a bit run down. The rooms are clean but the air conditioning units are incredibly loud. The other people who are staying here are incredibly rude and inconsiderable. The best thing here is the staff. They are amazing!!

    « Good improvements »

    Was pleased to see that the 2nd elevator was finally fixed and back in service having been out of service for at least 2 years that we know of. The redecoration job is also completed and very nice. The only thing still needing improvement is a less firm pillow or two on the beds.

    « Very happy with my stay »

    Cheap and cheerful hotel just off the Pomona freeway. About twenty minutes from downtown and about the same to Dodger stadium. Quiet even though the freeway is close by. Good size rooms and good room service. Plenty of parking underground as well. Very helpful staff. Decent wireless. The breakfast was the only thing that was a little under par. The room was too small for the amount of people and sometimes you had to wait. Other than that I have no complaints. Recommended.

    « Great staff!! »

    I checked into the hotel for two nights and although there was nothing wrong with my room the people in the next room were over the top noisy. After about an hour the noise was getting me down so I went to reception and asked if it were possible to move rooms. Although the hotel was full the lady on the desk still allowed us to move to another room which was perfect. She made what could have been a nightmare stay into an enjoyable stay and I was most grateful for her understanding. The hotel is clean and the parking is easy and safe.

    Not too friendly and the checkout process was the worse I've ever experienced. After waiting for front desk to answer phone thirty minutes before checkout time, of noon. I asked for a later checkout and first she said 1:00 pm than 12:30pm and after 12:30 there would be a $25 charge. Waiting in line to check out desk received a call at 12:15 and was told they already owed the $25 and would owe another night after 1. Inconsistent.

    « Excellent price, nice rooms, secure parking. »

    My group and I stayed here for a week and had absolutely no issues with this location. It's been renovated recently with great results. The bathrooms are modern, clean, and spacious. The rooms are well maintained with soft beds. The complimentary breakfast is vast and well stocked, and overall the property feels very safe and well kept. Parking is underground in an easily accessible garage with elevator and street access to the hotel. We never had issues with being able to hear other guests in the halls or adjacent rooms, and the lobby staff were very courteous throughout the check in/out process. Despite the nearby club, there were never any disturbances and the club area was very well controlled by security to prevent noise or any other issues. I really can't say enough good things about this property and the staff, especially for the rate we paid! The halls still have the slightest musty smell, and the elevators could use an update, but the more important aspects (rooms, staff, breakfast, rates) are all so on-point that these weren't even blips on my radar, I mention them only to be as thorough as possible in letting future guests know what to expect. The location is also close to shopping if you need to pick up last minute necessities, and lots of food options for grabbing something on your way to and from the hotel. We truly had a great experience, and I hope you will too. It was a bastion of rest and relaxation during an otherwise hectic and busy trip to Los Angeles.

    First, I got a great rate thru Costco Travel. Secondly, I was quite happy that the place looked better than the last time I stayed here 2 years ago. I think our room was nicer than expected. The beds were very comfy and so are the pillows. My wife and kids (teens) slept like babies. Third, bathroom as very clean although showing a little bit of wear. Lastly, Jasmine at the front desk was helping me with checkout at 10:30 am. She then asked me if we had breakfast. I responded that we had not. She offered if I would like a to-go breakfast bag. I was so pleasantly surprised at this offer though had to decline as we were going to meet my daughter for brunch already.

    « Value for money »

    Good value for money. Only gripe was the room allocated. I had asked for a quiet room and I think I got the noisiest room I had ever had. Believe the room number was 305 awake all night with the high buzzing noise from an electrical room next door, I actually timed the 5-8 minutes quiet intervals between each pulsating noise throughout the night. Had arrived late and husband slept through most of the night due to sheer exhaustion and bad hearing but I had no such luck. Swapped the room the following morning and staff were very accommodating, this room should not have paying guests. The bedrooms are fine and clean and the breakfast was good, staff very polite. Location ok if you have a car.

    Best Western Markland Hotel saved us a ton of money on our trip to LA! My husband, 14 year old son, and I stayed for a week in March in a double bed room. Free parking, free breakfast, free wifi...in downtown LA those things would be extra. Breakfast was nice with a fair selection of hot and cold items; and being vegan we were happy they had soy and almond milk available. The room was very basic, but very clean. Beds comfortable. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Only downside for us was distance to LA, driving back and forth was not fun, but was doable. My husband used the fitness room, he said it was clean, had towels, and plenty of room to do his exercises. Overall a good stay at a clean hotel for budget minded people.

    « Refused the room reserved »

    I made a reservation for a friend who was traveling and he ran out of money and needed a place to stay for the evening. After the reservation was made he arrived at the hotel only to be refused the room because he did not have a credit card.

    « 6 Thumbs Up »

    I came into town late on November 5th to catch an LA Rams game the next morning; I had a bit of an issue upon check-in, a bit of an oversight on my part but nothing to do with the hotel itself. Ashley was working the desk when we checked in and lessened my anxiety about the oversight. She was super courteous and professional and helped me find a solution to my dilemma. Jasmine(I hope I spelled that right) dealt with our few questions and needs efficiently. The rooms were clean and well kept and breakfast was more than adequate. Upon check-out on November 7th Aleah saw us off with an excellent disposition and great personality. It was a good experience overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Very friendly staff and clean hotel »

    We stayed here for 3 nights during the Santa Anita Breeders Cup Race. The room was basic with 2 queen beds. Nice beds, linen and pillows. Very clean and quiet. Free parking and very nice breakfast. Ashley and all the staff we came in contact with were very customer service friendly. Great place and afordable

    « Great Value and Great Receptionist! »

    Stayed during August for the weekend with my family. I was looking for a nice room in a budget and this hotel was just right, I could not find anything better based on price in Pico Rivera.The receptionist was polite, helpful and very professional she was very understanding and rushed to get a room ready for us since we got in early.

    « My stay at the Mest Western Markland Hotel »

    While visiting the Los Angeles area, we chose to spend a night at this hotel. The hotel is readily accessible from the 60 freeway, with easy off/on access. It is in a quasi-residential area, so parking on the exterior is non-existent. The hotel has an underground parking garage that is tight and requires modest driving skills. The hotel itself was typical of any Best Western. There is an indoor SPA. The rooms are on the interior, which does provide a sense of security. We had a room with 2 double beds. Everything in the room worked. We found the room and the bathroom area to be clean. The hotel provides a continental breakfast, with the standard food fare and juices. Sunday morning was quite busy in the breakfast area, but there were two staff members keeping the various foods and drinks stocked. On the negative side, the hotel advertises a restaurant on site. The front desk personnel gleefully points out that there is a restaurant just steps from the lobby. A menu is even included in the room that mentions the restaurant and bar's hours of operation. Yet, when we went down to get something to eat at 8:30 PM, we found the restaurant locked up tight, although the posted hours of operation showed that it should have been in full operation on a Saturday night. When I inquired at the front desk, I got the shoulder shrug about the restaurant being closed, and was given a map showing fast food establishments in the area, that we could walk to. Fortunately, we had access to a car and was able to find an eating place without much problem. Still, overall, the visit was pleasant. We will definitely stay at the hotel again, if we are back in the area.

    « Good value but needs some work »

    The value is good but the hotel has been under "renovation" for something in excess of 2 years now with no sign of improvement. Only one elevator works which requires extra waiting time. However, the breakfast is better than average.

    « A three night stopover, just right for us »

    You have to understand that this is not a high end hotel, its a budget property with great friendly staff, comfortable, but basic rooms and a location that's handy for those wanting something out of the middle of the city. We turned up after a long flight from the UK, staff were more than willing to provide us with helpful advise, suggestions on where to eat, and other tips which ended up making our trip/holiday. We couldn't fault any of the staff we met, friendly, open and engaging. our room was at the back of the hotel on the top floor; in fact we were right at the far end of the corridor, there was only one other room between us and the fire escape. Our room was clean, odourless, and functional. I have always measured a room on how clean it is, comfy bed and pillows, lack of noise and access to hot water; big tick on all of these fronts from this establishment. Breakfast was a continental affair, although there were eggs, bacon, sausage as well as the normal cereal and toast. There was also a waffle making machine, fresh fruit and yogurt. Staff were constantly refilling dishes, although if you come later in the serving they may not put more stuff our to prevent wastage. this is a simple meal, nothing fancy. I run regularly, one of the staff gave me a good local route to follow which sorted my daily needs. Parking is bellow the hotel with a service elevator to all floors located in the middle. I cant really fault this establishment, its basic but functional. I can see how some people may dislike this place, maybe they have failed to look at other reviews before they book; we would use this place again.

    « Excellent accommodation at very affordable price »

    Our stay in Markland Best Western, before and after our 7 day bus tour, was very comfortable one and we do admire the reception staff who are always ready to help us. Excellent location close to downtown LA.

    « Excellent Hotel with friendly Staff! »

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Markland Hotel when visiting LA for a few days. On arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff on reception desk. She was polite, courteous and explained everything to us that we needed to know. She processed our check in very quickly. We then parked our vehicle in the underground parking, which is complimentary for hotel guests. Each floor of the car park then has an elevator, which services the hotel room floors. On arrival at the room, it was very spacious, clean and well equipped with the usual that you would expect. The bed and pillows were comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. The room was serviced daily. The breakfast is basic and located in a small area just off of the front reception. It could be bigger to cater for the number of hotel guests. Equally, the food on offer was basic, for example two cereals, some pastries, toast, waffle machine (only one so long queues) as well as bacon and egg. They also have a coffee machine and juice machine. If you were in a rush, you can skip breakfast and collect a complimentary 'to go' bag from reception which had fruit, water and a cereal bar. This was a nice addition if you are leaving early. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend!

    « Best service! »

    The hotel is very nice and clean, staff amazing and I had the best firm bed I ever had! The front desk employee couldn't checked me in early but she propose to keep my luggage for me and even use a fridge for my perishable items. The flooring is made out of wood, so it is kind of noisy

    « Convenient location, close to highway »

    This location was close to the highway and was a major convenience for us as we were traveling. We had a shocking experience at breakfast time and had to eat our breakfast standing. There was even people eating in the Lobby area and we saw some taking their breakfast away, maybe to their rooms?

    « Short, but good stay »

    We arrived after a long flight from Germany and were welcomed very friendly! Room and service were good (obviously no 5-Star premium Hotel). Breakfast better than expected. Left after a short night as planned. It's located a bit far out, if you are planning on doing sightseeing/tourist stuff. But has a good connection to the next highway.

    « They will not match the low price »

    I booked the hotel and found many website offered lower price and immediately sent the claim. (They offer price matching) However, they waited and by the time they checked the internet the rate had gone up and they will not match the price. Since you never know when they check the websites and you're not guaranteed. Unless you're super lucky, you will not get the lowest price as they promise. Don't waste your time to file the claim. Very disappointed!

    « Not your typical Best Western experience... »

    We selected this hotel for it's proximity to Universal Studios (1/2 hr), and because over the years Best Western seemed to offer good quality for reasonable cost. This hotel is conveniently located right off the frwy. When we walked into the elevators, we wondered what we were getting into, as the wall panels were old and filthy. Our room smelled of stale cleaning supplies, an open window helped clear that up. Otherwise, all was ok, probably would not spend 2 nights here though, property just seemed a little neglected.

    « Overall Good Experience »

    Excellent room and value for the rate. All other hotels in the area were booked, so this was a last option. Bathroom was not the cleanest due to a toilet issue, but other than this it was safe and clean overall. I would stay there again. It is not the usual Hilton or Marriot we're used to; however, I would definitely do this again.

    « We'll be back »

    The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The front desk people were very friendly. The breakfast room was small we had to take our food back to our room because there was no room to sit and they ran out of waffle batter on the first day so I didn't get one the whole time we were there. The parking garage was convenient, I've stayed at hotels where they run out of parking room so I was glad we were able to use the garage. The location was great for our needs, just about 10+ mins to downtown. Breakfast was until 10 am and check out was noon which suited our laid back personalities, we didn't feel rushed.

    « Kept awake by staff »

    Do not check into room 105. It is opposite employees' office, and they are slamming the door until 11 pm and again from 5 am. Surroundings og hotel pretty dull. Nowhere to go and eat. The rooms are ok.

    « Won't stay here again »

    Very uncomfortable. Strong mold odor that was masked with cleaning supplies. Really tried hard to make the appearance look good and smell good, but you can tell as you check in that it is a very old hotel. Definitely won't recommend if you're looking for comfort.

    « Good price not far from Downtown »

    Chose this hotel for the proximity to Downtown LA, Universal Studios, and Dodger Stadium. Close in miles, but of course there's always freeway traffic. Room was clean, breakfast descent, staff friendly, and it looked like they were remodeling areas. Can't beat this for the price. Only one minor complaint, we were on the 3rd floor facing the street, it was somewhat noisy from traffic, room on the other side of the hotel would likely be more quiet.

    « The staff were friendly and the room was nice. »

    We had to travel to S.C. for a funeral and this hotel was close to where we needed to be. We booked two room and it was very nice. The hotel staff was nice friendly and the breakfast was very good. The whole experience was very good considering it was a three star hotel. I was quite surprise with with experience.

    « Good hotel with a great staff »

    We stayed 3 nights visiting Los Angeles. Although the hotel isn't nearby Los Angeles Downtown, is very quick and easy to get there, so it becomes the hotel a great option to pay cheap. The restaurants and stores near the hotel are very convenience.

    « average hotel »

    The asian/american guy at the reception was very nice and accomodating. The room is nice. Breakfast is decent. The only establishment near this property is a gas station but if you have a car, all the tourist attractions are 15-30 mins away if there are no traffic. wifi is not that reliable.

    « Best value »

    Great value compared to other budget chains. For about $80 a night I was able to get a suite with a jacuzzi, free breakfast every morning that included hot protein, fruit, cereal, breads, juices and coffee. Located right off the freeway it's very close to several shopping and dining options. Walls are a little thin but rooms are clean and spacious. Plenty of underground parking. They were in the process of remodeling so I'm looking forward to seeing the new look.

    « Decent Hotel with good staff »

    we stayed 3 nights visiting family near there and at check in we had to ask front desk to switch one room due to moldy smell, The staff was very accommodating and did so right away. The other room we had had peeling bath tub, scratched and stained toilet (not dirty, but worn out) but the beds were comfortable and room was fine. Internet worked well. One thing that was a bit disapoiting to me is the breakfast. Unpeeled hard boiled eggs and limp greasy thin strips of bacon. NO half and half and the coffee was not good. Plenty of parking and great access which is hard to find in California. Overall, it is a very basic hotel and met our general needs.

    « First time stay at this hotel »

    No swimming pool, no microwave, no ice-machine on 3rd floor, need more variety on the complementary breakfast. The staff was friendly, room was ok, plenty of parking on site. Only major issue was finding a dirty underwear and shirt sitting on the top shelf of the closet in our room when we first checked in. TOTALLY GROSS! They did took care of the problem but now we're self conscience of the issue and worried what other gross items we might find in the future.

    « Comfortable »

    Stayed one night, though arrived extremely late due to a delayed flight. The front desk was confused as to what I was doing there so late, but I said I had a reservation and I was checking in. The room I had was large, renovated, and comfortable. Although there needed to be more outlets unfortunately. Also oddly there was a window by the bathtub where you shower, but it's darkened out. I would be more disturbed if I were a lady, but I didn't quite care. Just a note in case you were driving an SUV, the height of the garage which is primarily underground is rather low. I think it's around 7 or 8 feet. I didn't realize how close I was to the ceiling until I parked, but all good. Just be wary. I would stay here again.

    « The Good and the Bad »

    Hotel is undergoing renovation so some inconvenience is to be expected. One elevator (there are two) has been inoperative for more than a year. However, the staff is more than helpful and the overall value is good. Improvements could include softer pillows and more microwaves for guest use.

    « February 2016 »

    This facility is a good value however it is in need of renovation. Not much in the way of dining options nearby. Close to the 60 freeway. We did not use the exercise facility or swimming pool. It appeared there was some repair work in progress during our stay. We requested and received a late checkout due to our business schedule. Staff was friendly, helpful and courteous.

    « Bad bad bad »

    I have stayed in other best western hotels before and all of them were great. That is why I chose best western markland. But unfortunately it was a bad choice. Totally different from the others. Stinky room. Cold shower. And the worst part was the terrible noise everyday at night and early in the morning. It seemed like someone was walking all the time on the floor above mine. Difficult to sleep. Staff was friendly specially Aaron, but I would never recommend or Return.

    « Comfy in California »

    Stayed at this location for 5 nights leading up to New Years. Liked: beds - comfortable; ample safe under motel parking included; indoor hallway room access; elevators; clean facility; exercise room; helpful staff; in-room ironing, hair dryer, and coffee/tea; hot & cold breakfast available daily - items included juices, coffee/tea, cereals, eggs, meats, waffle maker, pastries, bread, etc.. Questions/Concerns: Our A/C unit was challenging to adjust and a bit noisy. Others we spoke with did not have this problem. We preferred to have them fix it after we left vs having a stranger in our room while away during the day. Summary: Have stayed here before and will likely do so again. Daily pricing is fair/competitive. They charge a premium here over New Years weekend - but so do others. No on-site laundry. No on-site restaurant but many accessible on Garfield and Atlantic Rds and in Monterey Park. 35 mins to Santa Monica, Venice Beach, LAX. About an hour to Long Beach and Redondo Beach. Freeways nearby. Would rate as a 3 out of 5.

    Your hotel should have scramble eggs, my granddaughter was disappointed to find out no scramble eggs, the rooms of the wall are too thin, the baby wake ups from noise in the hallway. The front desk staff was very nice.

    « Renovation in progress 12-02-2015 ! ! ! »

    If you plan to stay at this Best Western, you really ought to call first to find out if renovation is finished. The smell of pain permeates the whole hotel. The hallway rugs are covered with paper to protect from splashed paint.

    « Terrible foul smelling stay during renovation. »

    Stayed here recently on vacation. The first floor lobby and hallway was a mess. There was very active renovation work going on and the hot spa was blocked by a maintenace sign. The smell in the first floor hallway was horrible like rotting fish. There were holes on the wall and plastic on the uneven first floor hallway. Inside our room the pillows had tons of lumps making sleep difficult. The toilet seat was loose and unsecured. I would recommend staying away from this hotel if you have a choice.

    « more like a Worst Western »

    On paper it looks nice. Except that it looks like a run-down, sad place. Elevator and jacuzzi broken. Room and hallways stink. Reasonable breakfast when they first fill up the buffet, then the selection shrinks as guests - as you would expect - eat it. There should be a sign to encourage people to wake up early to see the full selection. Staff is friendly but it's ironic that they tell you five times about no smoking and then you see cigarette butts everywhere and smell it too.People smoked on the balcony below us until 2AM and we got to enjoy it along with the immense highway noise. The most annoying part is the price: I can put up with all these annoyances if it were a Travelodge. I definitely feel I didn't get what I paid for.

    This Hotel is in a very busy area. Location could be better. Breakfast needs improvement. Many people stay at this Hotel it gets very crowded for the breakfast, the dining room is small at there not enough sits for gusts to sit. Many times we did not see any fruts, there were gone benfore we got to the dining room.

    « A good value but needs some attention. Pillows too hard and one elevator was out of order. »

    The pillows on the beds are too bulky and hard. Recommend a choice of pillows when checking in or mixed on the beds. Also one of the two elevators was out of order which was our experience the last time we stayed at this hotel too. Elevator cab could be spruced up.

    This hotel looks a little creepy outside because you can tell the structure is old. However, EVERYTHING about our stay was great. Hotel was clean and staff was nice! I would DEFINITELY return again. We slept amazing in the comfortable beds.

    « Should be called a Motel »

    This place was not only in a weird area, but it felt like a motel. By weird area, I mean the location and the surroundings. Right outside the window I had a view of an empty field with gigantic power lines and then an old abandoned house that looked like it probably housed 50 raccoons. At night we heard rustling out there but couldn't see what it was. I usually stay at Best Westerns or similar because they're typically clean and have friendly staff. This place was an exception. The place felt dirty and cramped and the elevator was very shaky. If felt like the place was under construction or something. Would not recommend.
