Ramada Los Angeles/Downtown West

Recent guest reviews

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

The hotel is nice the Korea town, so there are a lot of Korea restaurant near the hotel. Room is nice and price is good

We attended an event at the Nokia Theater and needed a place to crash. This hotel had just what we needed and was a short cab drive to LA Live. This is my got to hotel when staying in this area.

I stayed there and the room I was assigned a room that the air condition did not work. They sent up a repair guy who told me to just wait and it would cool off and it never did. I had to be assigned a different room, pack and unpack all of my business wardrobe and to top it off, the website did not indicate that the Hotel was going to lose power at 12 PM the following day. Just a terrible experience and I will never stay there again.

Rooms are not that big to accommodate a family for longer stay.

I knew this was an older hotel, expected some quirkiness, but this was disturbing and uncomfortable. In L. A. overnight for an early appointment the next day. Got to our room about 3:30 pm, the room temperature was 58 degrees. It was 85 outside, but did not expect the arctic blast when we opened the door. Quickly adjusted the thermometer to 88 degrees to warm up the room. Even opened the one window that had a screen on it, then left the room for 4-5 hours. When we returned, it was still cold at 61 degrees. Went to Lobby desk to complain. Was informed that the heater does not work, advised to open the window and turn off the a/c unit completely. The room warmed up to maybe 68 degrees by 6:00 a.m. To top it off, there was no hot water in the shower, lukewarm at the sink. Other complaints: thin walls, heard our neighbors conversations, minimal parking and a very small, smelly elevator.

This hotel is in a very convienient area just minutes from the staples center. The room was nice accept we had a leak in the middle of the floor from the air conditioning and you could not control the air temperature , but at least we had air. I would consider staying here again if I had too

a hidden gem in koreatown

Everyone

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.
