Not disabled friendly , no elevator steep stairway you have to haul luggage up and down . Don't expect much from the breakfast , decent for free . Staff friendly when they can be found . Room clean but musty smell which goes away . Convenient location close to city center .
The room was fine, however a bit stuffy, but fine once we were able to open the window and get the fan going. The pool was like a extra large hot tub - just a place to cool off. The lobby was fine and the small dining area and the continental breakfast hit the spot!
We stayed here for 2 nights a everything was great. Our room was clean and fresh, we were towards the back and had no noise during the night. The complimentary Breakfast was ok, it is not a feast but it was fresh and served in a clean ,tidy area. The location was good for us as it was central to Hollywood siteseeing, Universal Studios and Venice beach.
I was very skeptical booking this hotel considering all the terrible reviews online. I was in LA for two days and for some reason all the hotel rates were sky high so I decided to give it a try. Check in progress was ok (I used to be in hospitality management for 10 years so I have much higher standards from most people in regards to service). The room I was given looked newly renovated. Everything was new, including the carpet. Cleanliness- excellent. I didn't find a hair or a spot. Honestly, $130/n in LA (Culver City) is a steal. I would definitely recommend the property.
There were baby roaches in the bathroom. When I was a sleeping a HUGE spider crawled over me and I woke up in a panic and killed it. Lots of bugs. Also, the wifi in this place SUCKS! It disconnects about every 15 minutes, and the clerk at the front just refreshed the page on my computer for 20 minutes till it finally started working. Very bad if you depend on wifi. The walls were also paper thin and it was very very noisy to try and sleep.
This hotel runs a scam by manager Romeo to steal your money we had just checked in at 430 pm to get out of heat and watch baseball game before going out to dinner we had 2 friends join us and manager threatened to call police because he doesn't allow more than 2 people in the room for even a few minutes they kicked us out and kept the money in a scam to re- rent same room that night of course we can fight it on credit card but this is work motel you will ever go to we had not even unpacked before they went crazy on us at 430 pm
our room was dirty, the shower was dirty, the carpet hadnt been vacummed. There were only two small towels in the room, we called down for more, and he said i would have to come down and get them. ashtrays outside the door. smoke wafted in all night. woken up at 7 am by people scraping/cleaning the roof- Directly above us. The motel was roped off from our room to the room next to us, so they were only working above our room. it was a motel, not a hotel, and no suites. wifi didnt work. they couldnt tell me why
Got a cheap deal on booking.com. The room was clean and pleasant. A little dated and the soundproofing wasn't great. We had no towels but once mentioned to the front desk this was sorted straight away. He also mentioned if we needed anything further to phone him and he would bring it over. All in all I would definitely stay here again. Good location. Comfy bed and free parking.
There is absolutely nothing fancy about this place - it's old and fairly run down and it's certainly not in the most glamourous part of town. However it's clean, close to freeways and the airport, and although there's really nothing within walking distance (hardly unusual in LA), there's plenty within a 10-30 minute drive. If your objective in LA is to get out and sight see and you don't need to stay anywhere fancy but it has to be clean and safe, this will do. Oh and parking is free. It is on a busy road so I'd ask for a room closer to the back of the complex.
Easy to find, immediately off the 405 and only 15 mins away from the airport. Basic accommodation, firm bed (yay), crisp sheets (very well made and clean), updated bathroom, CLEAN REMOTE CONTROL! oddly quiet (ecxept for a/c unit-the norm on/off cycle) since it's off the hwy. Very friendly staff & safe neighborhood. Improvements: bathroom could have been a bit cleaner (floor) and the toilet seat was peeling (upside is we know they clean that well! ), continental breakfast is sparse (cereal, cold items, small array of croissants and mini muffins). Overall I highly recommend this motel and would stay here anytime I'm passing thru!
