“MICE = worst hotel experience I've had”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

I picked this hotel because the reviews were pretty good, it was a good price, and it was right next to the airport for the one night I needed it. Unfortunately, mice decided that they wanted to join in on my stay and that is something that I absolutely cannot handle.
After discovering the two mice in the bathroom, I went to complain to the front desk to try to get another room and was told that he didn't want to deal with the mice right now and he would try to get me a new room in a bit. I decided not to stay in a hotel that wouldn't address a mice issue, but when I tried to check out after all of that, I ended up having to argue with the manager for an hour about getting a refund for the night and eventually gave up and decided to call the corporate office.
Absolutely the worst hotel and customer service experience I have ever had.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

I chose TL-El Segundo for the price and location (I DID NOT want to stay in Inglewood). The continental breakfast included waffles, tasty. The rooms are a little on the OLD side but confortable. Got the munchies? There is a convenience store just south of the hotel. An Airport shuttle is provide free of charge if you utilize their "set" schedule, a fee for shuttle request. We did not utilize the shuttle, however, a friend did a month later. I would stay here again if my flights require a layover. Oh, you can access the internet and printout boarding passes from the lobby, for a fee.

Room Tip: A Frig abd Microwave are in the rooms. Buy Munchies at the convenience store to the south

Stayed at this hotel with my wife for 1 night while waiting for my flight the next day. Staff was very friendly, room was nice and clean, food available easily nearby etc. On the overall, an excellent overnight stay and would recommend it to anyone. Left really early (at 5 am) the next day to catch our flight and there was free shuttle service provided!! Read some bad reviews on this hotel here, but we are very happy to say that we experienced none of those bad aspects.

I stayed here for 1 night in between flights. Pros: close to airport, updated rooms with cozy bed and nice tv (although the bathroom looked like it was remodeled by a 12 year old), free breakfast. Cons: NOISY - my room was the last one on the first floor by the back door. I was wakened by the staff having there morning chat prior to working, then every 15 min by them and others going in/out the back door. The back door slams rather than closing quietly. A room upstairs may have been better. The breakfast had not one healthy item. I'm sure my blood sugar went through the roof; service was lack luster. I'd stay again if I had to, but I'd request a room on the second floor.

If you only need a bed in a safe neighborhood close to LAX or South Bay beaches, this will do it.

I was stranded overnight at LAX and needed a last minute affordable room, and booked this through Hotwire at a huge discount. It was 5 minutes from the airport in an area that felt quite safe, grocery and pharmacy right down the street, very friendly staff and welcoming motel. Parking was $5, but wifi was free and worked well as did the HD TV. I did find a few bugs on my nightstand but the management's concern and responsiveness the next morning was appropriate. Breakfast selection was very limited, but room had fridge and microwave. Although the room was extremely small, it was very comfortable for an overnight stay. I would definitely return here, and especially if I needed a shuttle to the airport, which seemed to be running regularly.
