For starters, the hotel entrance is not clearly marked and can only be easily accessed from the westbound lanes of Century Blvd. If you're traveling eastbound, i.e. from the airport, you'll have to pass the hotel, then make a U-turn somwhere to get into the westbound lanes.
Parking in the adjacent garage is $7/day. However, you're required to get your parking ticket stamped every time you plan to leave the garage. Unfortunately, you have to get this stamp from the front desk, which was often understaffed and with long lines. (The stamp is only good for 20 minutes, which means you can't get your ticket stamped in advance.)
The elevators were broken when I checked in, so I had to wait while they repaired them (or else walk up five flights of stairs to get to my room). Other guests, who had been waiting longer than me, had gathered near the elevators waiting to go check-in to their rooms as well. Although they were repaired rather quickly, I found it ironic that all three elevators were down at the same time.
Room service was difficult to reach on the phone, as there was no phone number listed on the room service menu. I had to go through the hotel operator to be connected.
I was in a non-smoking room, but cigarette smoke, apparently from a nearby room, somehow drifted into my room at times.
Food at the restaurant was very mediocre. Not bad, just mediocre.
On the day of checkout, I found my final bill stuck in the door outside of my room (instead of being slid underneath the door, as most other hotels do). I did not appreciate this, as my bill had personal information on it (including my name and partial credit card number) and could have been taken by passers-by.
By the way, be VERY careful if you decide to make a local phone call from your room. Calls are only considered "local" if the phone number is within a three-mile radius. How one is supposed to ascertain the proximity of a dialed number is beyond me, but that is their policy. If the call is not "local", you're charged $2.77, plus a per-minute charge. Totally outrageous!
On the bright side, the hotel has free wireless Internet access. This free service was not advertised, but I discovered it by accident when I turned on my computer in my room. The service was rather spotty at times.
Well, that's my $0.02. Good luck.
OK stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Used the hotel garage facility which we had to pay for ($6 approx) which was not expensive but we had not been told the car parking was extra.
Overall opinion ...OK for the price and it was only so that we didn't have to travel 405 in the morning rush hour!!!
A few notes about the Clarion Hotel LAXfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Here are a few things I noted about the room I stayed in (on the top floor of the hotel), the hotel and its location:
When I arrived at LAX, I discovered that the hotel's free shuttle service telephone number (55231) listed in the baggage claim/courtesy phone area was not working. Airport staff used their mobile phone to call the hotel phone number so that the hotel could send a shuttle bus out to the airport to get me. Advice: Make sure you have the hotel's phone number with you, in case you need to contact the hotel from the airport.
The free shuttle service to the airport runs every 20 minutes.
I arrived way before check-in time and was able to leave my luggage with the hotel reception staff while I went on a day tour of LA with nearby VIP Tours, which was recommended to me by hotel staff.
The linen provided, the furniture and the carpet in the room were clean. The bathroom was relatively clean as well, though some of the facilities were showing signs of wear and tear (e.g. bath tub was old and heavily scratched).
Toiletries (e.g. soaps, shampoo, conditioner) were provided.
All of these were in the room and all worked fine: TV set, hair-dryer, adjustable air-conditioning.
The dining facility at the hotel did not look particularly inviting to me, and there really isn't much by way of restaurants near the hotel. I went to McDonald's down the road for breakfast, and Subway across the road for dinner.
I noticed an internet cafe directly across the road from the hotel, but I did not go in.
I could actually hear the planes coming in to land at nearby LAX at 9/10pm, but it was not so loud that I could not go to sleep.
The hotel reception staff promised to set up an early morning wake-up call for me and it never happened. (Fortunately I had set my own alarm clock.) Advice: Bring your own alarm clock.

Negatives: Too much noise: busy Century blvd. and the Airport combine to make a constant hum, making it a little hard to relax. The front desk is understaffed and overwhelmed at check-in time. Bellhop desk manned by indifferent, slouching types. Parking lot spaces are inbetween large concrete pillars that have been freshly painted to hide the scrapes, I reckon. Safe requires a key you get at front desk (they don't tell you) but when I inquired they had no key- "I'll have them send one right up." (never came) Adjacent McDonalds is a bit of a scumpit (lovely Inglewood begins here).
You can find a good price making this hotel almost worthwhile but I recommend trying to find a deal at the Renaissance or Doubletree El Segundo.
Could do better, could do worsefrom rsolin
Mediocre at bestfrom stortzenheimmer
This was a Quality Inn until recently. The paperwork still says Quality Inn.
Bad part of town. Just as we (finally) figured out how to get into the hotel (in the middle of the building ....) we saw literally 6-8 hookers walking around plying their trade. No mistake here ... it's not a great part of town.
Top Local Tips for Los Angeles
hire a car, it aint that scary i got some taxis on the first day which cost a fortune. after i got my confidence hiring a car was the best thing i did (i could keep my own timetable and stop and start where i wanted). stay alert if you drive on the other side of the road at home and get some good basic advice on how to get somewhere from the front desk. one cab trip cost the same as a 24hr car rental. but go online and youlll save 60% to book the car.

Internet access After three weeks in New Zealnd, Australia and Tahiti with hotel internet connection charges as high as 68 cents per minute, it was fabulous to have free wireless internet at La Qunita.
