As expected, met needs for a work trip

Most of the reviews I saw for this hotel were about right. The low rate and free parking were key for me. The room was clean and comfortable, which are the most important things, but showing its age a bit if you look closely. Some reviews mentioned noise, and although my room was along one of the outdoor corridors, I had no problems with noise. I had a 3rd floor room (top) and was kind of glad I did, as I could hear the floor squeak sometimes when I was walking. Speaking of walking, it's just a bit beyond walking distance to attractions and activities - both in terms of distance and whether or not you'd want to walk through certain blocks. Bottom line - if used as an affordable home base for activities in L.A., and you plan to drive, the Ramada is a satisfactory choice.

Business convention

Even though the room decor was older and somewhat musty, it had everything I need plus a large, jetted soaker tub and separate (small) living area. The pool area was very nice and the restaurant would deliver your room service order there! The 2 courtyards were nice to relax in (evenings) with my business associates from the convention. The one near the restaurant was open to it below, so you could hear music, too and there was dancing Friday & Saturday night there. I heard the buffet breakfast was very good, too. There were other decent places to eat around the hotel and a 7-11 a half block away. A bonus to us was the Towncar available to drive us to the LACC nearby for only a little more than a taxi.

We reserved this room for a concert at the staples center. Great place, friendly staff, close to the venue. Great room for the value. Would stay here again and recommend it.

Gem in hiding

We had no idea of where to stay while dropping our daughter off at college. This hotel proved to be a wonderful choice! There was underground parking where we were greeted with a very friendly attendant to answer all our questions. At check in we were so welcomed! Such fantastic service! Our room was wonderful. Everything worked well and it couldn't have been any cleaner. This appears to be an older hotel but once inside, our room was so new and updated. The area and location also appears to be shady, however my husband and I walked to a nearby McDonalds and there was no trouble. We are thrilled to have found a hotel for the future when we visit USC and are looking forward to returning. We highly recommend this hotel. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Good, no frills, fairly easy access to all the LA area

It's not the "spa experience" kind of hotel, but that's fine. I don't need a pedicure where I sleep. The beds were wonderful (I covet those sheets!), the location central, the parking free. The breakfast buffet wasn't worth it, but across the street was a McD's which was fine for breakfast. There were good restaurants within walking distance. I enjoyed opening the windows and listening to the world while feeling the breeze. The wi-fi kept requiring us to log in again, and was slow, much to my son's annoyance.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The gift shop at the LA County Coroner's is great if you have a morbid sense of humor. My son (almost 14) and I actually enjoyed that almost as much as Disneyland!

Not what I wanted

I had hoped for a room like that in the photos. What I wanted was a place where two of us could work a little bit. In the photos there are two tables (a table and a desk). That is probably true in rooms without the massive tub/shower. We ended up with a room that was 1/3 bathroom. There was a massive jetted tub and shower. It was a bit awkward using the shower as there was no curtain, just the open room. I wasn't sure from the website if there was breakfast included. Answer = No. There is an onsite restaurant though where you could buy breakfast. I also needed secure parking. My vehicle was 6' 6" and that is exactly the clearance for the normal parking garage. They have an unlocked, but reasonably secure, parking lot across the street that worked just fine.

There is a Salvadorean bakery two blocks away that has an interesting selection of rolls and sweets.

Anemic A/C, Horrible wi-fi
