Reviewed yesterday NEW

Our stay was very good. The hotel's location was great for us. The staff was very competent and helpful and the accommodations were very clean. Breakfast choices not good; too much high sugar choices.

The property is nice and also in a good location, China Town. My concern was the cost of the room. The advertised cost was about $290. for two nights but I was charged $345. for the stay plus another $19.for the booking company so the total was $364 or about 20% more than advertised.I am sure in the small print...

Needed a place nearby USC's Keck Hospital for wife's surgery. This place was 7 or 8 minutes away. It's also 2 blocks from the West Gate of China Town (which is a super cool place to walk around in). Priced remarkably well given the alternatives. Rooms were clean. Parking was cheaper than other nearby choices like the Omni or Ramada...

Another family member booked this for the three of us in town for a couple of the playoff games.

Very good reception at the desk. Room was clean and neat. We had connecting door with friends. It is in a great location. While ear plugs were provided we did not need them. Breakfast was good with lots of choices.

Gargantuan parking area. Stashed, safe hotel, super friendly staff. Rooms all look well kept or recently renovated. Stand up shower in the bathroom. Single bed room was huge & clean. I didn't feel gross in here one time. If you have kids they'd think this hotel was neat.

This Best Western is a good location. I was over charged for my two night stay. Had to get that straight. Found a live roach in room next morning. Heater/air conditioner unit when on made a ticking noise all night. A lot of outside noise while trying to sleep.
