Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by conwe Have to wait for 62 minutes for the shuttle
It might be an one-off experience due to the US president visit in Los Angeles. However, the unexpected waiting of 62 minutes for a shuttle upon arrival on 5th August is really a shame. I have stayed this hotel before so I knew it should not be the case. But as an airport hotel the most important thing is to have a frequent shuttle bus service. This time HIX LAX Hawthorne failed to deliver. I started to wait in terminal 4 at 22:20 and the shuttle did not come until 23:22 while there were several rounds of other hotels.
Upon arrival the check-in agent was not aware of there was an issue of lacking of shuttle bus and the manner displayed of employee checking my passport was rude and unnecessary. The only good service I had was from breakfast staff. Absolutely wonderful. They should man the front desk.
The miserirable continued after I checked-out and the stay was posted as non-qualifying stay despite it was an Advance Purchase from IHG.
Rubbish experience. Aviod at any cost. This would be my last time to use this hotel when transit in LAX.

My family of 5 travelled from Toronto, Canada to California and stayed over for a night in LA. We were so happy we stayed at Holiday Inn and at this location. Staff were great from the minute we entered into the lobby to the time we left, the staff attending the meal serving area, cleaning the elevator, fixing a loose knob and at the registration desk continued to carry their smiles along with their Good Morning Greeting, they created such a welcome atmosphere and if we ever come back to LA again and/or travel to other places we would definitely stay at this Holiday Inn in LA and/or look for Holiday Inns for our vacation accommodation.
Thank you to all the Holiday Inn Staff at LA Airport Hawthorne!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laner68 Spacious and clean rooms
Our three day stay was good. I liked having parking with a code to get in.
The room was spacious and queen beds were comfortable. There was a sofa sleeper but the mattress was terrible. It needs to be replaced in room 414. I did not sleep well for 3 nights on the sofa bed.. Staff gave me extra blankets to put over the horrible mattress, but did not do much good.
Pillows were also uncomfortable; very lumpy.
Staff was good; breakfast was good.
I would stay again but would check the sofa sleeper before making a committment the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doctorjoolz My favorite LAX hotel
I have stayed at this hotel 6 or 7 times since it opened and it just gets better each time. The staff are great. The property is well maintained - they changed over the furniture in the foyer while I was there this time and the old stuff was not shabby!
I always stay for over 5 days (this time 12) and I think the hotel is well situated for visiting different parts of Los Angeles and environs.
Amenity in the immediate vicinity is sparse, but if you have a vehicle that's not an issue. The hotel is excellent value and very close to LAX.
Good gym, business center and pool.
Usually I come in Winter so the press at breakfast was a surprise - but manageable.
I know some people say that it's in a "bad" area - all I can say is they must lead very sheltered lives!
Thanks you to the staff and owners for creating and maintaining a good hotel.
I'll be back soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vintner2009 Exceptional Customer Service
I do stay here quite a bit, but the staff has always been exceptional. I was late flying in one night and had stay over in another city until the next morning. I finally made it to LAX and was getting my rental care when the front desk called to check up on me since I had not checked in from the previous night. I am in good health and no special person, but they are genuinely concerned for there customers and will go way out of their way to appease you so if you don't stay here and you try another hotel, you are really missing out on something special. There is nothing I would change except maybe for the breakfast. It's decent, but you can't keep eating the samething over and over so I like to change it up with local restaurants. Very clean, always painting and cleaning the carpets, housekeepers going out of their way to provide anything that is not in the room. You name it, they do it to make you feel at home!

This room had queen beds. The property is adjoined by another hotel, by a shared entrance area. The parking area is across the side street in a covered security/gated facility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doboyyy Great Stay even with Late Arrival
My family and I arrived late and check in was a breeze. The room was big and I was able to cool it off fast. Also had gated parking which i liked a lot. Breakfast was good as they kept bringing out what was needed. Lobby gets busy in the morning so if your a early rising person get there early. Staff was nice. If im in the area I will deff stay here again.

I come to LA pretty often for business but this is my first time here. I don't know why I didn't stay here sooner as the location is good, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The bed is very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nickname999 Chose for proximity to LAX
Nice hotel, shuttle from airport difficult. There are numerous shuttle saying Holiday Inn & La Quintas and they neglect to tell you that or that they are regular sized van-be sure to check with driver as it took us 3 tries!
Driver taking us to rental car facility next day very helpful and welcoming.

I have been staying at this hotel three or four times a year for the last three or four years. I picked it because it was close to a customer's plant that I visit. I stay there now because I like the hotel and the staff. Everyone is always nice and the rooms are very comfortable. I like the flat screen TV because I use it as a second monitor for my laptop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pebbles24 Really good!
I usually never give excellent for everything but this hotel is really excellent. We stayed here in the beginning of our holiday and forgot all our jackets. At the end we came back and they had everything and even gave us an upgrade to a beautiful room! We had a great time!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JNChicago Never again stay there
That's it. I had to look for alternative hotel chain that I stay at when out when of town.
Pulled up and no idea how to get into secure parking garage. No one around until someone finally show up to enter code for gate to open. Confused how to get out of the garage. Loud room above me at 12:30 am.
This bad experience was my only one with Holiday Inn but never experienced this at other franchises I stay at.

The staff provided excellent information as to the local restaurants, etc. Though the hotel was full of guests, the room was quiet. With a good nights sleep, I was ready to start my work day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No1MrED Great way to start our trip
We had had a long day. Our second flight of the day was delayed for 8 hours in Atlanta Georgia. After finally getting to Los Angeles and being picked up at the airport by the hotel shuttle, our day got a lot better. Quick, easy check in and finding the room ready for us made the HIE a perfect choice and a great way to start our 28 day cruise to the South Pacific......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Fantastic place but with WIFI issues
Lets start from the end: I highly recommend this hotel.
Everything was great except for one thing; very poor WIFI in the rooms on the first floor and unstable connection in general.
The rooms I stayed at also have an ethernet wire for wired connection; so you will be OK if you have a laptop with RJ45 port, but Macbook Airs don't have this port.
I stayed in a suite on the ground floor for 7 nights.
The first room I received had very bad and unstable internet connection (very low and fluctuating transmission and receiving rates with frequent disconnections).
On the second night the internet to the entire hotel crushed.
In the morning the IT manager saw me wondering with my laptop in the lobby and suggested his help. He was very helpful, courteous, and a true professional - too bad I don't recall his name as he truly deserves a special "thank you".
We did various tests and he asked the manager to move me to another room.
The staff cleaned the other room very fast which was a great help because I had to leave for a meeting.
WIFI in the second room was very poor as well.
I suggested to install a router inside the room; to my surprise the IT manager agreed; this certainly saved my stay in this hotel because it was a business trip; otherwise I would have had to find another hotel.
Hotel Internet connection crashed once more, but that happened in the middle of the night so it it did not effect me much.
Apart from the WIFI and Internet connection issues; everything is great.
Acceptable gym, convenient FREE parking considering its LA, breakfast - every day different sausages and filings in the omelets, excellent service, and great location with shuttle to LAX (although I had a car).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cruisers4life Great staff & service
We arrived late & used the complimentary hotel shuttle. The driver called to make sure we knew he was on his way & would be there shortly. We arrived at the hotel & the staff was very pleasant & made us feel very comfortable after a long day. The room was larger & much nicer than we were expecting. We woke in the morning to a wonderful complimentary hot breakfast & the complimentary shuttle was ready & waiting for us when we needed to return to the airport. The overall accommodations & staff over-exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julie99 Great Stay and friendly service
I would thoroughly recommend Holiday Inn Express we took our Daughter and Grandson and booked two rooms for 4 nights. The rooms were quite large, clean and the beds were very comfortable. A good location from the airport with a free shuttle bus to take you to and from the airport, you must phone from the airport when you want to be picked up, we found a service desk who phoned for us. Breakfast was basic but what do you expect for free, quite adequate to start the day off. The staff was excellent and very friendly and helpful.Free internet and a nice swimming pool to lounge around and relax to get over the shopping. Being from New Zealand we didn't have a car but we caught the bus down to the South Bay Galleria great shopping to be had down there. Apart from the actual shopping center behind is a Target, there is Nordstron Rack great bargains to be had from there and over the road a DSW shoe wholesalers, amazing bargains. You can shop until you drop, so Holiday Inn Express for us was in a great location. We then went onto New York and then came back for another night in LA before we flew home to New Zealand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by upset74 November Stay
I am just learning how to use this site and if I knew back in November I would of made this review. I stay at your hotels often for work and the first and list time I stayed at this one their was a problem that someone else was issued a key to my room. The door was opened and I was startled. I did call the front desk and let them know. When I spoke to a manager I was in a hurry to catch my flight but was told they were sorry it happened and if I was to go back to ask for the GM so she could comp my room. They had already charged me at the time so I asked for an email and it as sent but after time they self delete. So I called the GM and she was not in I spoke to another manager and she said she could not help me she would forward the message to the GM to call me right away. Still no call so I had to call back again and leave another message... I needed to make a reservation so finely when the GM calls me I told her what happened. She was short with me and cut my call off quit fast I could't even make my new reservation. She told me she would send me an email later that day, I was thinking why an email when she should just call me back. guess what she didn't...Next day comes morning passes and still no call or email. I had to call her back AGAIN. I told her listen all I want to do is let you know what happened and reserve a room for 4/21/2013 I said if you can comp it that would be great but if not a discount would be fine, and then she told me well I have to see if what you are telling me is true!!!!!! Right their what is she indicating? As a customer why would say something like that? Then she said sorry it is not in my power to give you a discount or anything else but let me transfer you for your reservation and yes if you like to make a complaint about my customer service you feel free to do so....

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NikkyName Some rooms are in a noisy area of the hotel
This hotel offers a good value in the vicinity of the LAX airport.
We had our room on the first floor, room #102, and unfortunately it was located directly opposite to the laundry facility.
Starting at 4:30 AM, the employees started to go in and out and the door slammed every 10 minutes with a big thud. We could also hear some carts being wheeled around, so sleep was impossible.
We returned a few days later and had a room on the 4th floor, which h was nice, spacious and most importantly , quiet.
As Hilton Honors Members, we should not have been put on the first floor in the first place.
