This motel is less than 5 miles from LAX so it would be great if you are arriving late at night. It looks a bit scary from the outside but the room was more than adequate: basic but very very clean. For the money and the location, I doubt you will get better.

This hotel was a great diamond in the rough! Recently it has been renovated and was very spacious. The staff was courteous, parking was safe and monitored. If you're going to do some sight seeing and need a safe place to sleep, this is the spot! To me, the price was very fair and offered a great service.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the area around the Hawthorne Plaza Inn is not particularly nice, and the building's exterior is not exceptional either. However, the price is very affordable, it is just down the street from a police station (so maybe it is safer...?), and the rooms themselves are very comfortable. I only needed a single night before onward...

I booked this hotel for one day. Accordingly i was there for check in and the receptionist, an Indian lady was very rough while talking to me, i did not understand why she did so. After a while she gave me a key for a room but the room was full of cigarette smoke (I reserved non-smoking). She was not...

Landed in this hotel after we had problems with the other hotel that we originally booked. The front desk was very nice and helpful to find us a room. The hotel was not that impressive from the outside. It was affordable and somewhat secured (you need to use your card to enter the building). My room was fine and clean,...

This place looks outdated from the outside but it is much better inside. The bed is super comfortable, powerful a/c to turn your room into North Pole if you like and they have a microwave! They provide you with all the basic commodities and perhaps more. This motel beats any 5 star hotel any day. The bathroom is a bit...

We stayed here for one night. Parking in front of the room is perfect. The room including the bathroom is clean. It is good for one night and nearby the airport and restaurants. At night it is a bit noisy.

The hotel was under renovations, which makes this hotel get better reviews. Can't judge a book by its cover. It looked like a 1 star when you first drive up, but after you enter the room it was very nice for a quick stay. I was in and out for a concert and was only 15 mins from LAX. Great...

Basic lodging at a cheap price 10/15 minutes from LAX. Can't really complain I got what l paid for. Currently undergoing renovations at the reception, so very noisy. Don't recommend a long stay. Plenty of American and Mexican food outlets nearby.

The prices are that of a decent hotel, and frankly it is an almost decent motel with friendly staff. However we got annoyed by the junkies which we did not expect in a decent motel. When we complained the owner refused to do anything, but when we asked to be moved to a higher floor, the staff allotted it without...
