My boyfriend and I stayed here in a double room with private bathroom for 4 nights in August. Main area is impressive when you first enter. Bedrooms are in need of updating but they are clean, as is the bathroom. If you are looking for somewhere that is cheap and just for sleeping this is your place to go! Common... More

Had a below avrage stay here at main to put it mildly. Rooms super tiny and dirty. Mold in shower and bathroom and its just in a really shabby state! Super rude front desk that made fun of other guests as they were checking me in, and breakfast? Not even worth walking up the stairs. If you can afford something... More

There are nicer areas to stay than Downtown L.A where this hotel is located. Although nothing did happen to us, we did not feel very secure in that part of L.A. the hotel room looks nice but there was no climatisation in ours, and due to the high temperature in august we could not sleep well. Shared bathrooms were not... More

Good prices and localization. Small bedrooms, but comfortable place. Friendly receptionists and the hotel has breakfast until 10 AM. A good choice if you don't care sharing a bathroom and paying for valet parking.

I stayed here early July and had booked 5 nights in a private room. I arrived around 11pm and was checked in easily and quickly by a pleasant member of staff. My room was great, freestanding fan and a ceiling fan along with windows. Big tv and ample lighting, (two lamps) I also had my own toilet but the shower... More

Hi, it's nice hotel not far from the center of Downtown. Free bus to the more interesting places, clear rooms, everyday cleaning. I think it's good for the people who need to see the LA. By the way, when you order room breakfast is complimentary!!! Very cheap price for the rooms if you book on the easy to book!

This hotel is great when visiting LA. The area is a little bit shady after midnight, but just walk a few blocks and you're at City Hall or Staples Center where there are a lot of great restaurants and stuff.. The hotel itself is nothing fancy, but you get everything you need. The rooms are rather small, but for this... More

Google this hotel! It says it all! The hotel was called Hotel Cecil. It's been the stay for many serial killers. Some people died. Just recently a canadian student. There's even a You Tube Video. Didn't let anybody make the room! TV worked, bathroom was creepy! Not comfortable at all! BUT you get what you pay for. This is probably... More

The hotel is fine, the room is too small, it does not have air conditioning and the bathroom is too small, the shower and the sink are in the same place, it is very uncomfortable. for the same money you could find a better motel in the hollywood area.
