Torrance, California
Reviewed 22 February 2016

The Hotel has been upgraded since our last visit in October 2015. New furniture, lamps with i-phone chargers ports and new mattress. Our room still had two old chairs that are low and uncomfortable. The check in and breakfast area were completely renovated. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We have stayed at this hotel many nights.

Reviewed 19 February 2016

Unfortunately, I can't recommend anything about this property except the front desk staff. Lousy area, lamps in room missing bulbs. Slow internet. The "clean" remote had gunk on it. Breakfast was underwhelming and at this price it's a "one & done".....won't do it again.

Good value and extremely helpful front desk. We were there for a dog show 3 blocks away, so the location was perfect. We don't believe in fresh sheets every day, a waste of water. The maids were happy to let us turn in dirty towels for clean ones and left us alone. We value our privacy.

Nice amenities, clean, newer and comfortable! We also found Best Western to be very quiet for a weekend even with full occupancy! Spacious room with beautiful large bathroom. Staff at front desk and breakfast room were very helpful and friendly! Good variety at breakfast, including breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, waffles, fruit, bagels, yogurt, hot oatmeal, etc. We especially LOVE...

We loved the room so much we stayed an extra night. We received an upgraded room with a huge bathroom/sink area. The king-sized bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The breakfast had burritos instead of the usual eggs. Great value for your money!

Wanted a hotel for a quick overnighter on the way up the coast, and this Best Western fit the bill to a "T." Lobby area is welcoming and immaculate with well-kept furniture. Check in was quick and painless, desk clerk friendly and helpful. Ability to park right in front of your room made load-in a snap. Room was large, clean...

The location was ideal for us as it was meant to be a one night stopover enroute from Monterey to LA. We chose a family room to accommodate all of us and the bags. Free wifi was very useful and breakfast the next morning was simple yet filling. Burritos ran out very quickly which was a shame. Check-in and check-out...

This property is very well run and maintained. My room was huge for the price and very comfortable. I thought the price was higher for the town, but on arrival found many more hotels than I expected, so this is a more popular destination that I expected. Breakfast was the normal menu, but this morning the oatmeal cooker turned itself...

I was pleasantly surprised at just how nice and comfortable this hotel is. I'm a Best Western rewards member, so I have stayed in many of these hotels. I have come to expect a good stay, and this establishment did not disappoint. In fact, it far exceeded my expectations. The lobby was lovely, decorated beautifully for Christmas. The front desk...
