Part youth-hostel, part motel, this 1* Inglewood, CA property (LAX zone on PL, HW) caters to the young and young-at heart by providing a combination of a) minimalist rooms and :) great amenities and service. I have stayed here twice, and I'd rather stay here than the LAX Hilton (I realize that's not saying much). The rack rate is about $55; I have recently stayed here for $39 (PL) and $41 (HW).

Ya gotta love something different! But I think I'll stick to the "Hilton." I do wonder how many rooms they sell on priceline. Pretty risky bidding on a 1-star in a large city.

Another PL stay here. This time everything went wrong. Bedbugs, no hot water, it rained and the roof leaked. Surly desk clerks (apparently they have a very high rate of staff turnover). I wonder if they have any other youth hostels around here....
