Second time I've been here and it's sill great! It's about a 15 minute drive to hermosa beach, 25 minute drive to Santa Monica, and downtown LA. It's a great price for the location and seems to be some what of a hidden gem because I didn't see a lot of people there. It's also really close to a lot of great asian restaurants and this awesome burger place called pit burger. Look it up. Anyways, if you're looking for something thats cheap, good, and with a great location then this is it
The owners have renovated the rooms to look very very nice. The rooms had a microwave and refrigerator and also flat screen T . We stayed at a 4 star hotel after we stayed there, and wished we hadn't left gardena hotel
The couple were really nice. Anything you wanted to know they would tell you and whatever you needed for your room they took care. The rooms were clean and they looked pretty updated. Had a nice flat screen tv an LG model. I also liked the terrace style away from the busy streets. Plus tables, plants and trees to make it look nice. Also close to beaches and other stuff we wanted to do in LA. Overall I really like this place and would stay here again if Im in LA. The breakfast selection wasn't much. Just some coffee, cereal and cinnamon rolls. But there were good breakfast places around so it wasn't that big of a deal. Their are better areas in LA to stay, but I didn't have any problems while there, plus for the money it was good enough for me.
- Parking, which is free. Dunno about safety though. - Pretty quite AC - Close to Target store A LOT: - Constant shake, felt like earrthquake actually, and it did wake me up. Not sure what causes it. Maybe traffic. - I paid $93 + tax this March, through Kayak and maybe redirected to expedia or something. The room is BAREBONE. An empty space in front of the bed and they put a very small square table and 2 chairs. The TV is placed on the wall. Even Motel 6 provided long drawers to put our stuff. - There is only 1 mirror by the sink. - Provided small thin they called as towels. I had to ask for more. - The toilet was backed up, we had to ask for plunger. - Bed was not really comfortable - Smell of people smoking outside - Water smells and taste weird - Located in a questionable neighborhood. Here's the statistics I found online: Estimated median household income in 2012: $47,259 (it was $38,988 in 2000) Gardena:$47,259 CA:$58,328 Hispanic - 21,905 (36.7%) Asian alone - 16,356 (27.4%) Black alone - 13,910 (23.3%) White alone - 5,277 (8.8%) Two or more races - 1,574 (2.6%) Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone - 388 (0.6%) Other race alone - 248 (0.4%) American Indian alone - 30 (0.05%) WE PICKED THIS HOTEL BASED ON OTHER REVIEWS AND COME TO DISSAPOINTMENT. I DON'T KNOW HOW OTHER REVIEWS WROTE OTHERWISE. BUT WE PROBABLY WON'T COMING BACK. WONDER IF THOSE REVIEWS ARE FAKES, SUCH AS FROM FRIENDS OR RELATIVE. JUST A THOUGHT.
Quiet and Clean Old building structure
Large space in the rooms for a family. Great breakfast and very clean and new hotel. Short drive to everything and free parking Perfect for the money
Clean. Nice breakfast. Spacious rooms
The staff are very nice and the bed was good The breakfast can be better
The rooms were big. We had 2 television which worked out great with kids. We also had a microwave and fridge. I would stay here again The only thing I didn't like was the parking lot was to small. Also my daughter was going to use a hotel towel and it had a bug on it.
CLEAN, new rooms, new sheets, clean bathroom... EVERYTHING IN THIS ROOM WAS NEW-ER!
The room was clean and big! I could relax! The desk clerks were helpful, esp the one that worked the 2p.m. to 2 a.m. shift. The men who came to fix the toilet seat that was broken and one to help me move to a downstairs room was very helpful! No one would ans the phone when I called to confirm the reservation. Also, all the phones were not working__one could not & no one would answer! The desk clerk at 11 a.m. went to my room when I left & took the tip I had left for the room cleaners!
The quietness of the area the loudness of the ppl in the room next to me
I love the cleanliness of the facilities and the friendliness combined with the positive attitude of the staff. not enough pillows and no full length mirror.
