in the middle of everything

Staying at Ramada Inn is not that bad. It is near all major LA attractions so it does save a lot of driving time. BUT they do charge for in-hotel parking every single night, which makes the cheap hotel price bump up to a not so cheap price.

Good location, price.

We went to LA to see the Kodak Theatre and Graumanns, which is only a few miles away, but traffic means this is a half hours drive. Once you get there, there is really cheap parking, and a lot to see. The noise was the kids in the next room, which is a random event, but maybe more frequent at a bargain hotel... The parking was nice, a secure lot with an attendant, required in this somewhat diverse neighborhood. Breakfast very nice, good selection and quality.

location is good and price is affordable

went on red bus tour, covers a lot of Hollywood sites, and Hollywood homes and historic hollywood places. If you smoke, it might be a problem. Continental breakfast is great.

Great value

VERY quiet! VERY firm mattress! GREAT value! Pretty clean. Very reasonable daily parking fee. Hairdryer & frig in room with shared balcony. Great water pressure with hot water. VERY close to Children's Hospital & another hospital, so quite convenient if family had patient there. Downsides were EXTREMELY strong smell of disinfectant/bleach in room, lobby, etc. Could not adjust themostat in room as it was considered cold in LA so heat stayed on. Very basic breakfast buffet options & understaffed but was included with room fee. Some peeling wallpaper in areas. Still could NOT beat the price!!!

What a huge misrepresentation!

This place is totally misrepresented! The so-called internet access is slower than dial-up and part of the time was non-existent. The electronic door key didn't work part of the time. The bathroom has absolutely no counter space. And don't forget to factor in the $16.50 per night to park your car in the lot! The hallway carpets should have been replaced a decade ago. Someone is going to catch their toe on the open holes and end up with a lawsuit against this dump. The manager was a total jerk when there were problems. Frankly, I wouldn't stay there again unless it was the only place in all of Los Angeles!

Overall, not bad

There is a lounge in the hotel, but it was never open, even after the front desk told us twice that it would be open. One person told us 6:00 pm and another told us 7:00 pm. If you don't know what accomodations that you have.....find out! Room was clean and close to the theater. Front desk could have been more knowledgable about area resturants and how to get there.

great until the weekend came along

The hotel was fine until about early friday morning our toilet overflowed while we were all sleeping. They came in to clean and didn't even clean it up properly so our carpet in our room was wet for the next 2 days. The bathroom smelt moldy because they have no fans for when you take a shower. They had extra charges on parking!!! 15 dollars a day extra. That adds up! I had purchased a postcard from the little gift shop they have there and brought it up to the front desk to see if they could send it off to my fiance and we still have not received it 2 weeks later. The elevators are very slow, trust me you are better off taking the stairs. Saturday night was our last night there and we were on the 2nd of 3 floors and they had a band playing downstairs in the ballroom and it was soo loud that we were up until what time in the morning trying to get to sleep. It was rediculous. I realize its the weekend but its a hotel not a club. other than that the hotel itself was nice and the breakfast was good.

We had to make things happen

The first room assigned to us was uncleaned. The maid told us this when we started to enter the room. We had to go back to the front desk to get a different room. The second room was neat and clean. When I asked to use the computer which was in the lobby (for customer use) it was out of order. The desk clerk told me to go across the street and pay for computer use. Borderline rude by the tone and by the words.When we asked about tourist activities in the area, even though they were not busy, they just pointed us to the bochure rack and told us to look for what we wanted. We were charged $16.40 per night to park. We both have stayed at Ramada Hotels all over The United States. This is the first time either of us has been disappointed.
