3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location no heater pool but nice lobby Great customer service close to university

Took the family for college visits to USC and UCLA. Hotel was in an industrial area but didn't feel that way inside. Pretty quiet, although close to highway

Staff was congenial. Found old room keys in the room from previous guest, 1 pack of coffee. Air conditioner a little loud. Room prices a bit high for what you get. I would think pricing to be at $119 for this type of room

Every time my boyfriend is in town from San Diego, we always stay here and we always have the same great experience. Clean rooms and close to where we need to go. Will continue to use this spot until one of us moves. :)

This is 1 of the 2 worst hotel experiences I've had in 20 years. Fluorescent bathroom light that flickered on/off, toilet that trouble flushing, small room, slow internet connection, paper thin walls, but I can even tolerate all that if I can sleep. But not here. We were kept awake until 3 in the AM because partiers in the courtyard outside my window were whooping it up (drinking, yelling, cussing) into the wee hours. I called the front desk FIVE times to no avail. One time, she even told me, they have no place else to go since the pool closes at 10. This does not make it okay for them to disrupt the other paying customers!! How about they go to a bar??? This was not a little bit of noise, this was AWFUL. I could understand their conversations, and hear their cuss words, and the hotel staff was completely unhelpful. The best I got from them that night was I'll ask them to quiet down. This was a terrible way to start our vacation, as we woke up tired and grumpy and had to get an early start. I spoke with a supervisor in the morning, only to be told that he was sorry about my experience, and maybe next time he could give me a reduced rate (there will be no next time) and offered me a free breakfast (a very restricted option). 20 years ago, we had a similar experience with a group of uncontrollable partiers at another hotel chain, and the staff comped our room and apologized. Not Courtyard. I will not be staying with them again. Ever.

The stay was nice and comfortable. The staff gave us a room that was completely trashed when we first arrived. When I went to notify them it took a while for someone to even come to the desk and when they did she did not really apologize for their mistake. I was given a new room that was clean and enjoyed the rest of my stay. The only thing I wish could have changed was that there was no complimentary breakfast for the money I spent.

we found this hotel for a one night stay and came back for another night they were very nice .. would recommened not staying on the first floor you can hear doors slam.

Very professional staff and excellent service! I've already booked another reservation at this hotel for my trip next month because I was so impressed!

Needed a hotel last minute. Wasn't bad, wasn't good. The room was clean, though. Staff was below average (to include desk and barista).

I didn't like the fact that find the elevators seems to be a little adventure but it's a decent find. Paul Mitchell products for the bathroom.

Great hotel overall. A little far from downtown LA but close to the fun things to do by Hermosa Beach area.

Everything was good. Room was clean and comfortable. Location was very nice because it was pretty close to many fun places. Also neighborhood was safe.

Room was comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly. Close to 405 freeway which was convenient.

the whole expirience was great the kids loved the stay aswell as my wife. it was very clean staff was friendly but one of them couldnt hurt for her to smile a little more or at least once. the only thing that would have made it excelent would have been a continental breakfast. they dont offer free continental breakfast, when cheaper hotels atleast offer some orange juice and a danish.

I am going to start with my only complaint. Please use softer toilet paper, or travellers should bring their own. This place was great. I needed a great nights rest before a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament at CSU Dominguez-Hills. I also needed a fitness facility to stretch and lightly exercise. This place did all the things I needed. In addition, the staff was very helpful and the breakfast bar/cafe was reasonably priced. I will book this place again next year, without looking anywhere else. Great Job!

Hotel was just as described. I wanted a local but clean hotel that was comfortable and the Courtyard Marriott delivered as promised. The room was clean and had all the amenities I wanted (pool, fitness center, bistro). The price was reasonable and I definitely enjoyed my stay.

My family got this hotel deal and we've been very happy about. it was the first time we visited L.A.. Courtyard by Marriott is the perfect hotel for anybody is looking for comfort, pleasant atmosphere and nice stuff. We were very delighted by our time spending at Courtyard. Best price and perfect comfort. I recommend to everybody.

Very friendly staff and service! Great value! Great location!

Great staff and a great location. Easy freeway access to the 405. Other Marriots have better mattresses. Rooms are a little outdated but overall a good value for the money.

We picked this place because it was half way between LAX and the cruise terminal in Long Beach and right off the 405 Freeway. Felt like an industrial part of LA and not good for walking anywhere to eat. We arrived late and resorted to their snack area for dinner. Gathered a few items like a pre-made sandwich and chips and Snackables and a beverage. We checked out at the front dest after waiting for the manager who had just lost her cool with the couple in front of us. We questioned our total as it was $6.00 more than it should have been. We had her go over the price of the items and when she came to the sandwich she said it was $8.95. The sign said 3.00. She argued with us that they are $8.95 and we brought her the sign which listed all the items in the snack area and it was clearly $3.00. She grabbed it away and scratched out the price with a marker and changed it. Never a "Sorry" or "Our fault" or "If that is what the printed sign says, I am happy to honor it".... Then we got up to the room and it was 90+ degrees. My husband tried to adjust the digital thermostat and could not get it to even show a readout. He went back to the front desk and when he explained it to her she argued he had evidently not pushed the right buttons. He would not back down until she promised to send up a maintenance person. I was now after 11:00 pm and we are sitting in a sweltering room waiting for fix it or change rooms and eat our $8.95 cellophane half pre made sandwich for dinner. The maintenance man came up and HE was very nice. "Oh dear, your air conditioning is broken"! We finally got a new room after another trip down to the front desk....
