Welcome to Ontario, California!
"Ontario California, east of LAX"
If you find LAX a bit busy, and you live east of LA, then try the airport at Ontario, CA. It's not nearly as busy, not hard to get to, and there's a hotel right across the street! It's quiet and has an outdoor pool, too. There's a restaurant in the hotel, and the hotel as a 'social hour' where you get a free drink (1 per room). The front desk will often have apples or cookies for the taking, too. I went there as it was the next town to Rancho Cucamonga, a town where a supplier of mine was located.
