Booked a last minute stay here because the price point and free parking (which was the best part about the hotel). Room was not what I anticipated. Hardly any amenities. Apparently I got one of the last rooms that has not been renovated. Very bare bones. But bed was comfortable

Manager and staff were great. They were very helpful in local recommendations and information. Room was big, clean and comfortable. Free parking was HUGE, actually any parking in LA is huge. Loved the loungy laid back vibe.

It's a re-painted Days Inn. There is underground parking with a weird no-valet, just leave your keys at the front desk with a sticky note on them system. The neighborhood is kinda rough (well, pretty rough) with a lot of decent eateries within walking distance. Overall not a bad value, but the booking site I found it on advertised at... More

We stayed one night at the Shelter hotel on Dec. 30, 2015. I was attracted to the location near the subway and the free indoor parking. My daughter wanted to "do" Hollywood and the location meant we could leave the car and ride the subway up to Hollywood Blvd. Also this place is quite inexpensive and has easy access to... More

Stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprised by quality of accommodations, I doubt you'll find places much nicer than this in more-or-less downtown LA (Koreatown specifically) for the price. My room was clean, quite spacious, not lavishly but intriguingly and stylishly furnished/decorated, very comfortable king bed. Wasn't sure about the immediate nabe but it turned out to be relatively... More

Stayed for one night in December. This place looks like an older apartment was remodel to be a hotel. It is clean, has free parking, and mobile concierge service. There is only one or two staff around so sometimes you have to wait to check in and out. The wifi is free and has decent speed.

Clean room, clean bathroom, comfortable bed. Appreciated having gated parking. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Wished they had reward policy for loyal customers that keep going back to them....

Room was big and bed was comfortable. Bathroom is clean. Staff members are super nice. There is free parking below although they close slightly before 10pm but you can always call them to open it. Area seems to be safe and it is in the koreantown (thumbs up)!
