Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by devonship1 Overpriced
Horrible location in a city where people drive like maniacs. No access to a delivery menu in the room. I made a mistake when picking this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sundog Good location, Excellent staff
I have stayed at this property before and have always had a good experience. I like the location by the 405 and have easy access to the Hollywood area, kind of a film geek, and a straight shot west to the beach and PCH for coastal driving. My business relations are in the area, so that is a bonus and why I initially stayed there, but I use it as a base for leisure, too.
I have worked with both Sharon and Jaime at the front desk, and they in particular, but all of the staff, have been very helpful in directing me to good non-chain restaurants and showing me how to get around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mark7227 Great hotel in an area of subpar accomodations
Friendly helpful staff. Clean and up to date room. Great breakfast area like an outdoor market with good quality. Nice large desk in the room with a very nice desk chair.Very clean room and bathroom. Just nothing to complain about here. Plenty of places to eat in walking distance....just ask at the desk. I'd stay here again on business any time. Very comfortable and with the request for a quiet room...a very quiet room.
Excellent for what it is!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sofialovesHolidayInns Only one thing I did not like
I love Holiday Inns. My family always stays in these hotels on EVERY Vacation. I love the breakfast. The rooms are always comfortable.
The only thing I did not like about this hotel, the Lobby!
I love to sit in the lobby at night and read... Most Holiday inns have great grant lobbies. This Hotel did not, only a couch for waiting but not really a comfortable lobby. The Breakfast patio was nice, but being outside it was chilly at night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by -Roadhog- Arriving by Car is a Bit Tricky
To get this hotel by car, you will need to enter the parking garage, but it's tricky. You get there by taking the 405 South freeway ramp from Santa Monica Blvd. But you will need to stay to the very far right and very quickly turn right into the parking garage. There is a lot of traffic and a lot of impatient drivers in this area. So it can be tricky. But once you are there, it's a great and convenient location if you need to be in this area of L.A.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cordoba Great Customer Service
The night guy 'Arthur' was very helpful and kind. I arrived late after driving for some hours. There were 2 check-ins in line and I was the third. Arthur was quick, accurate and very pleasant. By the time he completed my check in, there was another gentleman in line behind me. From the time I checked-in, entered my room and went to bed was approximately 6-7 minutes... after a long day, that's a good thing!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mom and Teenager Great Srevice....Strange Location and buildings
My daughter and I stayed one night. The front staff is super friendly and helpful. The Hotel itself is different than others I have stayed in, it was a bit intimidating the way you enter through the garage. I never felt unsafe just not that inviting, Website doesn't show the actual entry. It wouldn't stop me from staying there again now that I know what to expect but it was a bit nerve racking pulling in and not seeing the usual lobby and open entry way. The room was clean and shower was nice. Breakfast was good as I don't do eggs but the cinnamon rolls were nice and hot. There was construction outside which made it a bit confusing but that will pass. It is a long 3-4 miles to the beach but really close to Beverly Hills... Overall it was a good night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love LA Easy access hotel
The West LA Holiday Inn Express is the easiest to reach, either on surface streets, or via freeway. Sitting right at the junction of Santa Monica and the 405, it is surprisingly quiet, and very convenient for all west Los Angeles locations. No fuss, clean, functional.

We enjoyed staying with Holiday Inn Express, would be nice to get more of a discount for being retired military as we do in TX. The buildings were very different but comfortable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GPred Loud and poor location
I usually stay at Holiday Inn Express for business. When I arrived I was very disappointed at the location and quality of the hotel. The staff was courteous and attentive, but the building and location was not what I usually expected from Holiday Inn. The room was very loud due to freeway

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Philip T Good experience
Based on other reviews, we requested a room away from the highway which proved to be correct. Hotel was nice. Breakfast was the highlight. Hot foods including omelets, pancakes, waffles, sausage, etc....including chobani yogurt. Paid $200 incld tax which seems like alot, but I guess it's relative to being in LA.

Holiday Inn Express West Los Angeles was perfect location for my first trip to Los Angeles. I brought my mother, sister, and two daughters to tour UCLA, USC and see the highlight sights of Los Angeles. Every thing we did was no more than twenty minutes driving time including traffic. This hotel is clean, comfortable, quiet, and offers a variety of items in their free breakfast. If downtown Los Angeles was hot, this hotel is located close to Santa Monica Beach

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NorthernCalifornian good service
Overall good service.
Two things. The hotel could do more on floor cleaning. They could shampoo on bathroom floor and carpet after every guests stay.
The switch knob on air conditioner unit probably needs a repair.
Everything else is good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by E3expo Great location, good breakfast, convenient for gas and food too
The location is great, it locates at the cross of I-405 and Santa monica blvd, The parking entry and exit are convenient for you to go out or come back. where ever you want to go, los angeles downtown or Santa monica beach, it's convenient.
Breakfast was good. and further more, there are many small restaurants around this hotel where you can get there by walking since it's at Santa monica blvd which is the main street in this district. I personally recommend the Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen. You can solve your lunch or dinner with 10 bulks. just cross the street.
And, Safe, of course, this place is very safe. it's great for foreigners.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alaskamarc Comfortable bed and great service
This is the best property in the Sawtelle neighborhood for a balance of price, service, safety, and accommodations. We visit our son and daughter who share an apartment in the area, and this is our preferred loding.
The parking is under the hotel and is very well-lit, well-marked, and easy to access.
I like: The comfortable beds, the WiFi access and speed, the staff and service, and the breakfast buffet.
I wish: There was a swimming pool, better exercise facilities, and updated decor.

This is not an elegant hotel but a homey one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raul37 I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn for the service and value!
Upon arrival. Arturo made every effort to see that I was welcome and receiving the best service. Real personable guy and helpful when I needed to scan some documents. My computer was not working and I could not scan from windows, he scanned everything I needed. He was a life saver!

I had a very important appointment at the VA. I was frustrated, aggravated, upset, mad because the taxi service I contacted was running really really late. The Night Auditor who had just got off work offered me a ride. WOW! That was sooooo nice of him.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AZ402 Rooms need fresh air
While choosing the hotel based on the property being a Holiday Inn Express, and knowing that the brand offers a very consistent product selection.... we chose the property based on the close proximity to the LAX airport. The hotel is easy to find, and easy to get in and out of and is right off of the 405 making the trip to the airport quick and easy. The property was what I have come to expect from the Holiday Inn Express brand... pretty good facility, friendly staff, a decent breakfast... the only reason for the lower rating is the fact that the room was very musty smelling. I know this happens sometimes in CA based on the fact that the rooms are mostly air-conditioned, but other hotels have done a much better job at making sure the rooms get aired out and do not have that musty smell. We left the window open for most of the night and it was much better in the morning before checking out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conicity 5 DAY STAY
My wife and I visited the Santa Monica area recently for both business and pleasure. We stayed at the West Los Angeles Holiday Inn Express for 5 days. The stay was enjoyable, the staff was very accommodating, the room was clean and well maintained. The breakfast bar had a nice variety over the full 5 days. Parking was easy and safe. I would certainly stay there again as well as recommending the hotel to anyone visiting the area. Well done..
