An agreeable and affordable stopover at LAX

Arriving at Los Angeles International can be hugely intimidating for any first-timer.

Even more so if you need to stay overnight in one of the myriad airport hotels.



Emerging from the arrivals hall at whichever of the many terminals you land at there will be literally dozens of shuttle buses - all heading for different hotels and motels.

The shuttle for the Best Western Plus Suites arrived within five minutes of my calling the hotel - and the three kilometre drive was quick and efficient.

The Best Western Plus is an older-style property but at $170 a night including taxes it does the job and doesn't bust the budget too much.

I arrived at 11am and check-in was not until 2pm but the check-in staff kindly arranged an early check-in and gave me the free wifi code so I could work while they prepared the room.

The room was large and comfortable, the staff amiable, and a welcome gift of some chocolates was a nice touch.



The room had free water, a coffee machine, fridge, microwave and air con - along with a window that opened to let in fresh air.

There was a business centre with computers and printers adjacent to the lobby, and vending machines on each level. There is even an outdoor pool and tub.

The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast but there are dozen fast-food eateries nearby, including Pollo Loco, WoBa Grill and Little Caesars pizza.

All-in-all most satisfactory - without spending a fortune.
