Ramada Los Angeles/Downtown West

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We have stayed at this hotel over 5 times. We love it because of the location. Very close to Staples Center/LA convention center (bus ride away). The main reason for staying here is the free parking. Many other hotels in downtown LA charge for parking and glad that this one doesn't. Throughout our stays the rooms are a bit lacking aside from the 1 double queen room we stayed in once which was very nice compared to the many other times we stayed in a single King room. This is our go to place for when we attend conventions or concerts.

I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel. It's good for the buck. What is troublesome is the location. Lots of homeless and beggars in the area. Lots of mentally disturbed people at fast food joints. Police gets called to remove someone pretty much daily. It was OK to walk the streets during the day. Not so much returning back to the hotel from the nearby Metro station.

There are LESSER hotels/motels across street/next door/nearby. THIS is the best and safest, cleanest place to stay in this area, in my opinion (and I booked here based upon similar statements in other reviews). There were loud people at Anime Expo staying here, management would address ANY concerns you may have. Our room was very quiet, very safe, there is a main elevator, so the front desk staff see anyone coming/going. Main parking garage is well lit, underbuilding and STAFFED. SAFE feeling - back opens to alleyway, but there's also an employee residence near back, so, it's still very safe feeling, and very well lit. Breakfast was a nice touch - Bagels, toast, eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, hot and cold cereal, coffee, teas, juices (more than continental). Buffet style. (There's more that I am forgetting here). There was a nice selection for it being included, and the restaurant staff did a GREAT JOB of keeping everything clean and well stocked. THANKS.

TV IN THE ROOM WAS NOT WORKING, WHEN CALLED TO THE FRONT DESK, THEY SAID IN 10 MIN SOME ONE WILL COME BUT NO ONE CAME TO FIX IT. WE CAME BACK LATE AND STILL THE TV WAS NOT WORKING. WE CALLED THE FRONT DESK AND THE GUY TOLD US THEY CAN CHANGE THE ROOM, WE WERE SO TIRED THAT DAY AND DIDN'T WANT TO CHNGE THE ROOM. NEXT MORNING WHEN TOLD THE MANAGER, THE MANAGER WAS RUDE , STARTED MAKING ARGUMENT AND DENIED THAT THERE WAS ANY CALL RECIEVED IN THE MORNING. NOT HAPPY.

The main receptionist who booked us in gave me one breakfast pass even though we should have received three. The next morning I went to tell her that I only had one pass and she begin to get defensive and argumentative about it. She accused us of losing our breakfast passes and told us its an extra charge if we lose it again. What ever happened to great customer service? Nearly more han half of he staff have the same attitude as their manager. Broken AC on our floor that they never came back to fix. 90 degrees was not comfortable at all and not worth the price of the hotel. $800 for three days just to get treated like children. Never again Ramada.

Friendly staff, clean room, sketchy neighborhood, typical continental breakfast.

I have stayed here many times and it is always perfect! The staff are extremely helpful and nice.

Overall great. Only things, we're vending machines out of order and no free breakfast, but that wasn't a deal breaker. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Very clean.

I was originally in a handicap accessible room. The closet was just a bar in the bathroom and if I had hung my clothes up they would have been on the floor. I asked if I could switch rooms which they did for me. I got out of the shower and found a dead bug abiut 2 inches in size. I would not stay here again

It was clean and comfortable, was close to downtown , shopping center and good restaurants. The main thing for us was safety and these places was safe.

All dirty room and the air conditioner doesn't work too

Stay was ok, although they had plumbing issues. However, the situation was fixed. Free breakfast was extended. A discount was extended for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, many homeless in the area

Room was very damp/humid. 8$ breakfast buffet is lower quality than free continental breakfasts offered by budget motels.

I needed somewhere to stay last minute and found this Ramada Inn in Koreatown, a short distance from my office. It was the perfect answer and quite a surprise. Outside its very unassuming and almost missed it when driving down W. Olympic Blvd. But once inside it is as nice a hotel and the staff very accommodating as the couple ahead me were from Europe and spoke some English. But the woman working the front desk was very pleasant, took time to explain things as far as charges, hotel accommodations, and even where to put the placard on the dash of their car for overnight parking. The room as smaller that your traditional Ramada Inn but I had a wonderful corner room that was as quiet as can be. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to visit LA.

I stayed 3nights. Every day fresh towels in the room and clean. In the early morning from upstairs somebody was walking sounds wake up me.

Everything was good. Yes would recommend it to other friends.

My room at the Ramada was very nice - not large but comfortable with great bed, however the lighting in the room was sparce - only one overhead light and one on each night stand. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub but no shower curtain, so the bathroom floor became the drain if I took a shower. The major problem were the accessories the cups and 'glasses' for the coffee maker and room were thin plastic - having a drink after a days work was like being in college with a beer keg. The same was true with the soap, conditioner, etc. Small bottles with little more than shampoo for one wash, small packets of soap and conditioner. Not what you would put out for an out of town guest. Breakfast is offered at the front desk from 7:30 - 10:00 but each morning I went to breakfast there were always a number of things missing - bacon, eggs, etc., yet they still wanted full price for a cup of coffee and a bagel and this is/was the only eatery in the hotel - the balance were Korean, Chinese or Mexican up and down the street. The front desk folks were nice and pleasant as were the hotel staff, but management was apparently unconcerned that signs for ice or almost anything else were misplaced or advertised things that were not there. It is also apparent that some folks who require the aid of the city or state are also assigned this Ramada as a place to 'stay' which made returning each day an adventure. This is not a place to stay if you wish a pleasant visit to LA.

Great for in an out business in town, nice and clean room, few but just ok amenities

good hotel, but the area the hotel is in is scary

Everyone

I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel. It's good for the buck. What is troublesome is the location. Lots of homeless and beggars in the area. Lots of mentally disturbed people at fast food joints. Police gets called to remove someone pretty much daily. It was OK to walk the streets during the day. Not so much returning back to the hotel from the nearby Metro station.

convenient location, problems addressed by manager

Everyone

There are LESSER hotels/motels across street/next door/nearby. THIS is the best and safest, cleanest place to stay in this area, in my opinion (and I booked here based upon similar statements in other reviews). There were loud people at Anime Expo staying here, management would address ANY concerns you may have. Our room was very quiet, very safe, there is a main elevator, so the front desk staff see anyone coming/going. Main parking garage is well lit, underbuilding and STAFFED. SAFE feeling - back opens to alleyway, but there's also an employee residence near back, so, it's still very safe feeling, and very well lit. Breakfast was a nice touch - Bagels, toast, eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, hot and cold cereal, coffee, teas, juices (more than continental). Buffet style. (There's more that I am forgetting here).
