Nice, but somewhat spartan

This is a nice, apartment like hotel in a residential neighborhood (Koreatown) near Wilshire Blvd. It's close to Hollywood. The room was large, modern, and contemporary, but with minimal furnishings: just a desk chair, night table, desk, and a bed. No bureau or chest of drawers, no sofa, no mirror (except above sink in bathroom). No bar of soap furnished (although they did provide other toiletries). Free garage parking is a big plus, as is free internet (DSL) in the room. Breakfast consisted of coffee and one muffin. However, the common areas were unattractive (dirty, cheap, old carpet, etc), and the garage floor badly needed to be washed (hosed) down.

Good place to rest

We went for a weekend getaway and decided on this place because of location and price...it wasn't bad but there is a lack of storage for clothes...we had to ask for more hangers, which the staff did get us more...there was no fridge or microwave so that didn't help....n on the day we were leaving they started working on the pool at 8am which we heard every hammering sound from our room...so we didn't get to sleep in...overall if you're just looking for a place to sleep its not bad, but if u need more then a bed and bathroom, you should go some where else....hopefully when they finish remodeling they'll add amenities to the room or at least the main lobby....

Decent for the room price!

Overall, the hotel is clean and ordinary. Nothing fancy. But, decent for its price. The room is simple with nice. Good for pure business travelers. The location is convenient. However, there is no refrigerator. It would be nice to have one. The internet access was not very stable. Otherwise, the overall experience was acceptable.

Happily surprised

I needed a hotel for one night near West Hollywood without breaking the bank. The Shelter Hotel had a great rate with free parking. I was a little suspicious wh I entered the lobby. It obviously was a converted apartment building and the furnishings there left a bit to be desired. But the room was great. Updated with a very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. It was quiet and was perfect for my trip.

Random getaway in Ktown

Pros: Shelter Hotel is close to public transit (Metro rail and buses), which was important for our trip. The building was quiet, as was the neighborhood, and the room was spacious and clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We loved the hardwood floors in the room! Cons: Our room did not have towel racks or a hair dryer. This hotel does not have an ice machine. Wifi was pretty weak in our room, possibly because we were in a corner of the building. After a certain hour at night, the gate is closed and door is locked; you have to call a number from a phone (so you better have your cell on you!) to be let in. Parking is free, but limited so you have to leave your keys if you double park in their garage. Just a helpful note: Entering is a little confusing. The check-in desk is on the first floor, while the entrance is on the ground floor below. You have to take the stairs or elevator up, but that fact is not indicated anywhere by the entrance. The building looks like an old apartment building that has been converted and renovated into a hotel. It could still use a lot of work and more amenities, but it's clean.

Needs Improvement

The rooms were very bland. The phones were outdated and not close to the bed. The tv boxes for cable are behind the tv for some bizarre reason which makes it very hard to click to change the channels. The showers dont have good preassure. It needs a lil fridge in the room which are super spacious and super empty. The lobby NEEDS updating ASAP. Very hard to get food delivered there. The staff were very helpful, the rooms were spotless, and the AC worked perfectly. For the amount of time I was in the room it was good but if it was a longer trip- non work related I wouldnt recomend it. Not the best area in the middle of a ressidential area. Too far for my liking to the Downtown area.
