Stayed for 2nights recently (April 10th and 11th 2009) in a room on the lower floor- this was the 1st bad thing. You have to walk down the dark scary parking lot to get to your room. We only went to eat fast food on the first night (5min walk from the hotel), but it was very scary to be out after dark in the area.
Walls are very thin, you can hear everything from outside and above floors, from kids yelling to people walking, showering, everything! All night and early morning= terrible sleep!
Not a very safe area as there were cops at the hotel on the first night; when we asked the receptionist about this, she said "it’s like that all the time". Felt like something from the movies.
Shuttle service is NOT 24hour as stated, and they are not very organized with picking you up because the bus is not marked and they pick you up based on your description of what you look like! There are SO many people at LAX so that's kind of hard to do! When they told us there was no shuttle on the 2nd day we had to pay $17 for a cab ride to the airport which we could have walked to in about 30mins! The cab driver told us that this was a flat rate which was standard for all cabs going to the airport!
The internet is NOT FREE!!! FALSE ADVERTISING!!! They charge you 35c per minute which isn’t bad, but the minimum charged is $3USD- so we only used it for emergency planning when the fake shuttle service lacked service!
Reception is not very helpful and they are rude, specifically the man who works the night shift, he has no emotion and never smiles and looks like he was raised from the dead (with glasses).
My sister's socks were stolen which was odd, because they cleaned the room while we were out in Anaheim on the first day. Normally regular hotels don’t clean until you’re checked out and they definitely don’t clean when you are not there! I was concerned of leaving cash, cell phone, and passport in the room on the 2nd day, so I took them with me. When we told them about the missing socks they didn’t care and said they couldn’t do anything. She never got them back. Socks aren’t a big deal, and we actually thought it was kind of silly, but imagine if something more valuable went missing!
Overall, not a good experience, do not stay here! $10 more and you can get something MUCH BETTER!
