short staying in LA

just one night experience. Place is pretty good and well located. they've got a big parking but don't have an elevator so you have to carry your baggage up by the stairs by yourself. The hotel is very cheap but offer you all the things you need. I recommend it for short staying.

An okay hotel

The hotel is at good location. It has large enough room. The cons are the bad smell especially in the lobby and stairs. The quilts are not very clean. The waiter in the lobby needs to be more friendly. Improvement in the management would be very helpful to boost its quality.

Basic reasonable accommodations

The front desk staff was friendly. The hotel was attractive from the street with a safe parking lot on site. Although the location was definitely not upscale, there were interesting shops and good restaurants within two miles. The street was very busy and the noise level was high. The elevator was out of order and there was a steep staircase with carpeting that needed to be vacuumed. However, the room was clean. The hair-dryer and electric outlet in bathroom was inoperable & there was no ice machine available. We did enjoy a refrigerator & small coffee pot in our room . It was convenient to downtown and our basic needs were met.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you want authentic , delicious Mexican food, a great margarita, and excellent service, try Antonio's. It's been there for 56 years and located within two miles on Melrose.

OK

Interesting pictures on the wall. Old outdated rooms that were clean. Elevator didn't work. Free internet worked well. No phone in the room which is OK. Good value for the money but nothing special.

Odd but inexpensive

The street noise in my room, which faced Melrose, was ridiculous. If I hadn't been exhausted, I'd have never slept. That said, for a cheap hotel, it wasn't a bad value. Just try to book a room on the opposite side, perhaps.

Bad for picky poeple

It's old and basic, but still a good room. The bathroom is small, there is no elevator, outlets are sparse, but it's great for the price and location.

good value

I booked the hotel cause the location and the free parking and internet. Room is clean, but I don't like the hard wood floor very much. And my room is near the street so it's bit noisy in the morning. Nothing else to complain. overall very good.
