OK if you're solo

I ordered a King for myself via this website for an extra $10 but once I got in to my room, it was a full. I was in a hurry so I didn't say anything at first but once I did, they were nasty about it. Their air conditioning really didn't work very well either which was disappointing as a sweat all night long even though I had it down to 62.

Great place to stay

Great hotel. Very clean, nice room. The bed was a little different. It only had the box frame and one mattress, so it was low in the ground. Bed was a little noisy when bouncing on it. Some paint was chipping off in the shower. Other tha. That it was great, used wifi with no problem. I would definitely stay there again. Cool modern look. Not to much noise considering it's next to the airport.

Short business trip

Chose Custom Hotel because of its proximity to the airport, but I also liked it because it is not an airport hotel (i.e., stuck at the airport). Plenty of stuff to do in surrounding area. Rooms were suprisingly quiet given its proximity to airport. Coffee in room is lame (but has anyone found in-room coffee that is not lame?). Cool bar above pool area, though young bartender served me a Manhatten "neat" when I clearly said "up". Also, for the price, the pour was on the skimpy side. Would definitely stay here again.

One night stay

The room reminded us of a very comfortable dorm room! It was very clean and perfect for 1 night! No room service but there's a restaurant that delivers 24 hours which is pretty reasonably priced! Grocery store next door. 2 miles from LAX with nice complimentary airport shuttle. Overall a great stay

Good Value

Good value. Good location if want to be near LAX, venice, marina del mar and 25 mins from Hollywood. Hotel is made over. Everything is fine with this place, it's renovated and modern, not plush and overly comfortable, but acceptable. Walking distance to pretty good restaurants and small shopping center coffee bean etc adjacent to hotel. I walked to KC Crepes in the am at 9 and the lobby breakfast was bumping euro techno beats pretty loud which was slightly comedic. Lots of Euros checking in when I was. Front desk friendly and professional. Parking is on street. There's a garage next door but decided to valet as another reviewer said it was $20, but it was actually $27. Still a good rate nonetheless. Bed was more comfortable than I thought. I had a decent view on 6th floor. Decor in room is I don't know Euro Mod I guess. Not plush but not bad. I would recommend for the value and easy access. Would stay again but probably stay somewhere else with my family., unless it was a short stay.

Housekeeping disappointing

Pro: The location was good. It's closed to LAX. They have a free shuttle service. The guy at the front desk who took care of my check-in was very nice and very friendly. Next day I saw him picking up the trash and lining up the cushion of the sofa neatly at the lobby. He was the only person doing that during my stay. Con: The housekeeping was disappointing. They left the used socks from a previous guest at the corner of the floor. They didn't change a bed cover even though it had a stain. The spring of the mattress was weak.

Good Airport Hotel

Chic modern hotel with a great pool and deck bar. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Location is great if you need to be near LAX but it's not that close to anything else unless you will be travelling by car. Overall a nice place to stay during layovers.
