Please research before staying here.. It is nothing like it is on there website, the lobby is great but once you get in that elevator forget about it..to start they wanted 100 dollars as a security deposit!! The place is a dive .. Bedrooms are disgusting like a jail cell.. The noise throughout the floors is a disgrace.. I don't... More

Good location, many nice restaurants and bars within a short walk, the rooms are basic and a bit outdated in decor however they are clean. All in all given what one pays here it's certainly a good option! A word of caution to those with cars, traffic wardens are obviously aware of Main streets faded and randomly placed red curbs....

I was very worried about staying here since I read some bad reviews. I brought my flashlight to look in every nook and cranny of the room. I lifted the sheets, looked at the box spring, under bed, corners of room and was happy to find nothing! Considering the questionable neighborhood & history, all was very nice. There were staff...

I stayed at this hotel because it was cheap and I only needed a place to sleep. I say that I had a terrible time for one reason only. At check in, I received a sheet of paper with the wifi code on it. You could tell that this was a scratch peice of paper. When I flipped it over... More

We were greeted by the friendliness guy we've ever met. The lobby and breakfast area is very nice. Breakfast is fresh waffles or cereal - all options are very high in sugar and are served on very wasteful disposable plastic but this is typical for America. This place is more of a hotel than a youth hostel. It's very nice,... More

WE stayed here for 9 nights during our time in LA and were treated very well. We had to pay a $100 deposit for incidentals but got it back when we checked out and did get it back without a fuss. The staff were friendly but felt at times there could have been an extra person on the desk. We... More

The check-in clerk will charge you a $50 deposit. It will not be credited back to your account. Unless you're saving more than fifty bucks with this economical hotel, stay with a reputable company. Otherwise, the accomodations are fine - it's just sneaky and crooked to advertise a low price, then backstab you with a fee to arrive at the... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
