Good stay.

Me and my boyfriend went out to a near by club so it was convenient to stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly. Overall we booked the hotel to party not for luxury.

You Get What You Pay For

We stayed one night. Look, you get what you pay for. If you expect more...then pay more. The room was clean, the shower felt good after a long day of driving & at the beach. It was nothing fancy but for the price, it was good. Suggestions for your stay: Bring your own towels (their's are very scratchy & small), don't plan on swimming in the pool (it wasn't cleaned or even open), don't plan on getting any of the continental breakfast unless you wake at the crack of dawn (even then it's donuts, coffee & juice only). Need a place to shower & rest your head for cheap price. This is your spot!

It will do in a pinch

This hotel is ok, nothing special about it. The sheets are old and yellow but were clean, the beds were comfortable, the towels were thin and small and very few were provided - 2 for a room with two beds. I sprayed the bedspreads wet with lysol and let them dry and wiped everything down with clorox wipes - that helped the old smell. The continental breakfast was pretty good - donuts, cereal, juice and coffee - but the coffee cups were like 2ounce cups - that was ridiculous.

Kinda funky but close to downtown

The rooms are in desperate need of a facelift. The room smelled misty and dank. Not a great neighborhood. The hotel staff were relatively friendly and helpful. You get what you pay for!

Good for what it is

Honestly, I got what I paid for. It wasn't noisy, but it is in a roughish neighborhood. No security latch on the door. Wouldn't take a family here, but it was fine for just me. The fridge in the room was nice to have.

Excellent Cheap Hotel

We stayed at this hotel on vacation over the Memorial Day Weekend. It is an excellent hotel for the price and its conveniently located between Hollywood and downtown. It is clean and the service is very friendly. For the price, you probably won't be able to get anything better in LA. The only downside is that their wi-fi did not reach our room even though they advertised internet service; therefore, we had to use the i-phone for internet. Other than that, it is a great hotel.
