A place to crash

If you plan on doing lots of sightseeing on a budget, then this hotel provides a convenient location between the downtown and the Hollywood/Beverly Hills/ and Santa Monica area. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. No coffeemaker in the room. Overall, quiet place.

Cheap central place to stay

Good location, close to public transit/metro. Good size room and washroom. Poor breakfast, but cannot complain as paid very cheap for this hotel.

Convenient, cheap stay

Nothing special about this hotel, but nothing bad to say either...certainly not a five star, boutique, but for those of you who don't spend much time in your hotel room during vacations, it's perfect...centrally located and parking is definitely an extra perk! The staff is super friendly, as well.

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!

You get what you pay for

Good location for where we were going, but paper thin walls and noisy complex. Across the street from a school so you hear the school bells on weekdays.

BAD, BAD, BAD HOTEL!

Walls dirty with some dark liquid, spider net all over the place. Pictures and door frames were so full of dust that it was falling on the bed and carpet. People running and talking loud until late at night. After I showed the hotel manager how dirty the room was, he told me: - For the price you are paying what did you expect? DISASTER!

The two day trip

Attended a wedding. Hotel was like staying at a Days Inn which was good. Rent car was good except seemed to lack power climbing mountains in Calabasas. Because of my GPS equipment my trip went smoothly. I would not have had a good time without it. The folks at the inn and the car rental were all courteous and efficient in helping me with my stay.
