We stayed here because our daughter lives nearby. We hadn’t planned on spending that much money, but we’re so glad we did - that place is fantastic! Forget about seeing the “sights” of LA - just sit and relax in the comfortable light-filled living room or on your balcony looking out over the Ballona Wetlands. If we come back, we won’t plan nearly so many activities, we’ll just hang out at the inn. What’s so great about it aside from the fact that you’re not looking at a strip mall? It felt like home - at any time during the day, you can just wander into the breakfast room and find a little something to eat or drink: maybe the extra muffins from breakfast, some chocolate chip cookies, some lovely lemonade, and of course always tea or coffee - with nice china cups, not throw-away paper or styrofoam. Then you can just plop down on the sofa and read the books, magazines or newspapers that they provide, work on your iPad, or just relax. If you want to go for a bike ride on the cool beach bike trail, you just go into the garden cottage and take a bike and a helmet; there are plenty of them so you don’t need to worry about not getting one. But of course it differs from home in that you are presented every morning with a tasty homemade breakfast (the hours of which accommodate both early risers and late sleepers) and which offers the basics like toast and cereal along with a yummy hot egg dish, fruit, and homemade muffins or coffee cake. And you have a front desk staff who are incredibly cheerful and helpful and, not being dressed in a uniform, just feel like friends. They really made the experience.

We sometimes avoid bed and breakfasts because the owner is more in our face than we’d like, the breakfast time is inflexible, and/or the breakfast offers no choice. This place provided the intimacy of a B and B without these disadvantages. We’re from the northeast, where prices are pretty steep, and it still seemed pricey, but that won’t stop us from coming back. Aside from seeing our daughter, the inn was the best part of the trip!

P.S. Whoever said the bird life is overrated was correct - at least at this time of year. All I ever saw from our room was an American Kestrel on the same tree every morning, and a few egrets, which aren’t that exciting for a birdwatcher. However, if you drive just five minutes to the corner of Lincoln and Jefferson, you can see some nice things. And meanwhile, who cares?

Room Tip: As everyone says, the rooms away from the street - which are of course more expensive - have the views and no street noise. Also, if you like fresh air, which we do, those are the only ones where you can get it. They're worth it!

Dear LEB
We are so very appreciative of our glowing trip advisor reviews; all of them. But every now and then someone notices all the little things that we do and the reasons we do them.
I could list them all but you really did and we are grateful.
We are also grateful to all the new wonderful people your words/review will send to our Inn.
Thank you for noticing and thank you for telling others.
Warmest regards,
Susan Zolla

I took Frommer's word for it and checked out this inn. I am so glad I did. I had to make a decision quickly after plans changed due to an illness, and couldn't have found a better place for what we wanted: close to the airport, beach town, quiet and pleasant relaxation for a few days prior to a conference in Long Beach. The Inn was all of that plus more. I had lived in the LA area for eight years and this was a sweet find. All of the staff - ALL - were terrific. And when they found out we had to cancel our Hawaiian trip at the last minute and stay in LA, they put a split of champagne in our room! The Inn is very close to LAX, as in 15 minutes. One caveat: from the airport you are driving west. if you do it close to sunset the sun is directly in your eyes. we hit it exactly at that time and made it through. Next time, i will pull over for a few minutes til the sun goes down.
Breakfast is plentiful, fresh and includes fruits, on-site-baked muffins, coffee cakes, etc. A hot egg dish - quiche or omelette - but also hard boiled eggs and all the usual toasts, jams, cereals, etc.
For other meals there are good restaurants right out the door and continuing down the street, with enough variety for any palate. I have to say I read the "terrible" review and was dumfounded. the view of marina del rey beyond the bird sanctuary and wetland is lovely. one can watch sail boats moving in and out of the marina to the ocean all day. So delightful and unusual considering how close you are to LAX. The beach is a short walk and one can borrow bikes from the inn and ride for miles along a bike path from the beach. the rooms were well appointed, good showers, terrific tub with large windowed baths as well. They have a computer and printer available if you need to do any work or if you require printing. I would highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: we had a king on the marina view side. it was very nice, with a little balcony. others on the floor had similar options.

Stayed here one night. A few minutes from the airport because we were coordinating with family to travel to a wedding. The staff and room were awesome. Rode bikes on the beach a few blocks away. Great little gastropub for dinner. Much more homey and enjoyable than an airport hotel.

Room Tip: Front rooms face a busy street, back room face a beautiful marsh.

We stayed here for a few nights and were very impressed with Inn. We arrived on time to have the complimentary drinks and nibble in the afternoon which was lovely. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Our room was beautifully presented with a lovely balcony that overlooked the bird refuge and marina in the distance. It was clean and very comfortable. Our only gripe was the air conditioning vent in the room. Whilst it was on it was fine, but as it stopped and started it made a loud noise which late at night wasn't pleasant and woke us most times. Luckily we didn't need it on every night. Breakfast was set up very nicely with lots of choices. I would recommend that the window next to the food not be left open, as there were a lot of flies coming in and landing on the food.
The Inn had plenty of restaurants in the area, and we ventured out and walked all the way to Venice beach using the bike path.
We had a very pleasant stay in all and would love to come back again!

Room Tip: Our room had a huge intake vent at the door, and it was noisy, so i'd recommend not having that room.

We just returned from a unforgettable experience when we celebrated our son's 40th with family and friends. The Inn was perfect in every way; happy hour with wine and cheese on the deck, delicious complimentary breakfast in the mornings served in the comfortably decorated breakfast room with beautiful table settings, very nice and clean accommodations for sleeping (when we had time), great location to walk to pubs and restaurants and the Beach, and most of all, the friendly staff. We thought of them as part of our family by the end of our stay. So glad we found this Inn at Playa del rey.

Room Tip: We had a suite that looked out to the bird preserve. Nice view and our friends had adjoining room.
