First time out west

The place was nice, if a bit lacking in amenities. The bed was comfy, the room was clean, and the whole place was generally quiet, even though I was right next to the pool. There was a mini fridge and a large TV, but the TV only got about 5 channels and the best were still a little fuzzy. The location is not in a touristy area, so if you didn't drive or rent a car, you will be ordering delivery or taking the bus to eat out. The WiFi password is only good for a day, so if you're staying a while, you will be need to keep that in mind. The staff was very friendly though, so it wasn't a hassle. While it is definitely not a resort, if you're looking for a clean, comfy place to stay in L.A. on the cheap it fits the bill. The bus/subway rides to both Sunset and Hollywood were pretty easy to navigate with Google maps, and didn't take very long either.

Convenient Location

This is our second time coming here. The neighborhood isn't too bad. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Breakfast included cereal, juice/coffee, and waffles. Parking was tight, but at least I felt safe leaving it there. We'll be using this place again in the future.

Convenient to downtown LA

Quiet, clean, some dowdiness, just blocks away from downtown; BUT, the TV is very dated and does not receive many channels or have an accurate clock which management would not correct in five days! Bring your own alarm clock or remain sleepless.

Never again

Terrible place to stay. No one in the office when we got there. People hanging out outside. Parking was cramped. Room is beat up. Bed was extremely uncomfortable. Pretty scary neighborhood. Never going back!

avoid!

I booked this in a hurry and misread the property’s name (thinking the first word was 'Holiday'), which is a far cry from the reality of this property. It is not in a good part of town, there are vagrants and questionable random folks loitering outside rooms at all times of day, there is not enough parking, the building is very run-down, the beds are VERY HARD and uncomfortable, only 1 thin blanket is provided, the heater did not work, the wi-fi is very slow and unstable, the walls are paper-thin, the manager attempted to double-charge me (didn’t seem to understand I'd prepaid on the site..), the phone in the room did not work… and it was generally overpriced for slum that was provided.

A place to sleep

I called and let them know I wouldn't be there till around 1 am and they held my room. The hotel was packed and the parking lot was full. There was no noise and the personnel at the front desk was pleasant.
