Perfect for a downtown get away

I had a conference in Korea town and this hotel was a perfect choice. It was relaxing and quite and the beds were so comfortable. The hallways were a little dingy but the rooms were clean and new and the neighbored was clean and safe.

Ehhh

Arrived to property and after checking in, no wifi! Front desk agent says router broken on 4th floor so I ask for a room on another floor, they provide it after a while. Decided to go check out the pool while waiting, filthy, it doesn't get cleaned and it isn't heated.

Thrashed!!!

I had to change rooms 3 times. The first room had a shower valve and water temperature control system that was beyond broken. The room I was given did not have a closet or drawers for clothing. The phone had a flashing light but no instructions on how to access. I found that it contained voice mail messages dating back 1 year. The second room had poor water pressure, a toilet that was so loosely attached to the floor that it rocked the first time I sat down on it, and I thought it was going to fall over. This room had an armoire, probably from an Ikea style/quality manufacturer, with broken doors and a broken drawer. At the coffee station in the lobby, they put out stale donuts with their coffee. Seriously?? Youth hostels are run better. This is not even worthy of a vintage 1950's 1960's Hojo motor hotel, never mind a hip, boutique hotel. I would never stay here again, period.

It was great hotel in LA

Shelter hotel was comfortable and very clean and it is close to Korea Town. So it is easy to move in Korea Town and the metro station is located near of the hotel. If you want to stay reliable hotel, it is good!

Fine in a pinch

Lackluster at best. It's an old apartment complex masquerading as a high quality hotel. I did not enjoy the hammering at 9:00A, nor did I enjoy being charged a deposit without at least being told (customary to do so, but left a bad taste in my mouth not to be told).

Simple, but friendly

The hotel itself seems like it is most likely a converted apartment building. The entrance is small and nondescript and only contains an elevator off the garage. The lobby itself is on the first floor and sparsely furnished. The staff is friendly and eager to meet guests needs. The rooms are decent size and recently updated, but the bathroom was still slightly grimy. The bed was large and comfy. The neighborhood is residential and it would have been nice to at least have local info in the room to help find restraints, stores, and bars nearby. Overall, the hotel was a decent place to stay for a night, but not the classiest place.

Decent room

The room was huge with modern decor. Bathroom was pretty. Problem is there's a crack on the top of our door, walls are thin and missing iron/iron board.

Not that clean

I saw a huge cockroach at the parking lot too and also under the carpet. There's a lot of tiny little bugs. The bed is comfy though
