The rooms were very nice, modern and clean. The only con was there was an odor in the bathroom from the fan whenever you turned it on. The beds were comfortable. The location was great. If I remember, In-n-Out burger was really close. A great value.

This motel is decent for the area... Your five to ten minutes from walmart or walgreens and 6 for fast food. Train line is 5 min walk and goes to long beach or downtown la via metroline. It looks better on the inside than the outside. The room was modern and great, wifi was decent and bed was comfy. Friendly... More

Pros: - Rooms were surprisingly very clean. Everything seemed newly renovated, so the decor was very modern. - Wifi access was consistent and moderately fast for hotel wifi - Conveniently located by the freeways. Cons: - Front-desk staff weren't outwardly friendly as you would hope they should be. Since I didn't run into problems, I didn't have to deal with... More

Rooms are excellent for the price, very clean and modern. The outside is very clean and the landscape area is manicured. Also really like the floors, not carpet to me makes the room much cleaner. I do agree with a previous review, the staff when you check in were a bit cold and they don't communicate too well, but I... More

Don't stay here looks great in the pictures. Far from that. Staff is creepy, asked for extra towels & told us I guess. Sheets stained, no cover on pillow cases, hair on sheets, bathroom smelled like the sewer. They watch you like hounds, check out time 11 they shut off water 10 minutes before. One of the worst places I... More

The room itself was ok. Very clean but the walls were very thin. We had to go to sleep with the tv on in order to avoid the conversation in the next room. Check in was kinda cold. Don't expect any smiles or "enjoy your stay". That morning I went to check out the vending machine and the lady who... More
