Great location, great staff

The location was great, the staff was very helpful, and the breakfast was good, and I had a wonderful room the first two nights that I stayed there. I had to add a third night, and was moved to another room on the third floor. It was like night and day. The room was old and in need of repair. The A/C did not work and the noise on the street outside was deafening. I am not sure if the hotel is in the process of renovating rooms, but I would recommend that you ask for a renovated room when booking. All in all, this was an excellent hotel. The staff was very helpful and the overall experience was a good one. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

It was nice

The carpets in the rooms and hallways are in bad shape. And TV recepion was bad. The location was good. Also you have to pay for parking.

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!

Find a hotel that doesn't charge an arm to park your car at night!

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.
