“Nice location and value!”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Wonderful all the way around, location, value, staff and rooms are great. I did ask for a room away from the pool and away from the streetlights. Parking is complementary. The continental breakfast is expanded with hot and cold selections. We were very pleased with our stay.
They have a washer and dryer which are available 24 hours a day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pool and the streetlights. Others have suggested this in their reviews...

My family and I stayed at the Best Western Plus in march 2012. We were given a double room set up with 2 double beds in it instead of the King suite we had reserved. When II called down to ask why we were given the double room, Brad, the employee at the front desk, explained that unexpectedly the guests in our reserved room did not leave but were definitely leaving in the morning. He was very helpful and made arrangements for our belongings to get moved the next day while we were out enjoying the area. He also was extremely helpful throughout the rest of our stay. In the end, we were not charged for the first night's stay since it was not in the room we had reserved. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The newly renovated hotel as a big hit with us all. The breakfast was a great way to get a start to our day without spending extra money or taking the time to go to a restaurant. There were make-your-own Belgium waffles, juices, cereal, yogurt, muffins, pastries, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, fruit, etc...

Room Tip: request a room that is not facing the street for a quieter sleep.

We enjoyed our stay here as the room was clean, comfortable and spacious. It was within walking distance of Venice Beach and the boats at Marina Del Rey. There were several restaurants to choose from also within walking distance, and the refrigerator in the room made it convenient to keep leftovers (the portions at some of the restaurants were huge!).
The price was reasonable and comparable to other hotels in the area. The staff was friendly and helpful and I would recommend this to any one who wanted value from a mid-range hotel. Thank you for making our stay pleasant.

Room Tip: The queen suite with a pull-out was a good option for us (two adults and two kids).

Great place to stay for area. Not too close to close to crazy Venice Beach, but walkable. Friendly staff, very helpful. Clean and comfortable.
Only down-side I could see was pool was tiny.

Room Tip: Away from main road.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus. This is a nice hotel and it represents a good value for the area. The property has been recently remodeled in a very modern style. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub also. Parking and breakfast was free. I was very pleased with our stay.

Rooms are clean, hotel staff very helpful and in safe area for walking although 15 minute walk from Venice Beach, but the breakfast room is tiny and always a queue so if you stay here eat breakfast out or take two lots one day keep in your fridge for the next day to save queueing.

This Best Western has large rooms, Free parking, which in LA is no small matter, and a generous, Free, hot breakfast. The location is very convenient to LAX, Venice Beach and Santa Monica. We were visiting our daughter who lives in nearby Mar Vista. The first night we were given a room overlooking Washington Blvd. and could not sleep well because of street noise. The hotel transfered us to an quiet upgraded room suite in the back at no extra cost. The staff is in tune with guests requirements and works hard to meet every need. There is Free wi-fi at the hotel and they have two computers for guest use to check e-mail, etc. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to LA.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms that face Washington Blvd.
