Default LAX crashpads

Not too many out there close to the airport. Any ideas?

I've heard great things about crashpad kingdom in El Segundo. They have a website too.

Lots close to the airport. Type LAX crash pads into your browser and a number of websites will come up. Start searching and you'll find hot beds in apts to individual rooms in houses.

There's also Blocked Inn LAX. It's a nice pad, but it's in a terrible neighborhood.

I would stay away from Altitude pads in the best western on Hawthorne. Bad area, shuttle took on avg 45 min each way, no common area to drop your stuff when you get in at an odd hour, and you are never guaranteed a bed. Their contract is littered with little gotchas that were pretty infuriating. They lead you to believe that everyone always gets a bed and their system works great but only one of their plans guarantees a bed with 24 hrs notice. Guys are constantly fighting to reserve a bed every night and they wont find out until after 6 pm if they were successful. If you don't get a bed you are stuck paying $100 bucks out the door for a motel 6. They kept charging me for two extra months after my base transfer and they were contacting their "finance department" when the whole company is three people in Atlanta.

I heard the blocked in had transportation issues but you could take the bus outside the terminal to the rail depot and then uber/cab it for a few bucks. It has a common area and places to sit and relax while people are sleeping.

As I mentioned, there are quite a few good places in the area. Behind the former Hacienda on Sepulvada, it looks like the airline ghetto sometimes, with all the crew members pulling roll aboards (the apts/houses are fine, just funny how many crew members stay back there!).
I pay $250 a month, we do hot sheet; but, I've never had to reserve a bed and rarely see more than two other crew members in mine.

Assuming they are still in business the Redondo Beach Pilots Club is a good one. It's a little farther away, but is in a great neighborhood, close to beach and bus. I set it up 20 years or so ago.
