The owners of gardena manage this place themselves. They were super nice and friendly me and my friends always chatted with them every time we went to the lobby. The staff was really helpful and the housekeepers would clean the room on a daily basis. The best part was there was free wifi and parking. I also loved how there... More

Hubby and I needed to get away, but didn't want to drive too far. Found this on TA & called to ask if we could stop by & look at a room. The front desk said "sure" anytime & we were right down the street. She was so sweet & the gentleman who showed us to a room was very... More

Stayed here two nights in September 2016 and found it easy, clean and convenient. I don't know LA area very well so needing to find a reasonable hotel in the area was stressful. This place got good reviews online and was true in person to the photos and the descriptions. It's clean and rather newly refurbished. New bathroom fixtures, fridge... More

I booked this hotel for 8/18-8/19, 2016. I paid more than $150 for one night. This is not a cheap price. But the quality of this hotel is like $30 cheap hotel! Basically, there is no service in this hotel. There was no front desk attendant during the day, and the office was locked all the time! When I was... More

I really wanted to like this place. It is obvious that the owners put a lot of thought and money into updating the rooms. The decor is modern, with the bathroom being the nicest. We chose this place because it was close to both the beach and LAX. Getting to the airport was a breeze (abt. 20 min) and getting... More

The room was very nice, the courtyard was very pretty, however, there was some dirt or something on the bathroom door. Whatever is used to wash the cover of the bed made me itch, but not when I was in the sheets. I do not like that no one is on the premises after a certain time of the day.... More

Not sure why this Hotel is getting 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor and Yelp. The good: The hotel and room were clean for the most part. The back of the bathroom door was pretty dirty. The rooms have been updated to a newer contemporary style. The bad: A/C kept breaking on us. We spoke to management about it and they tried... More
