If you have a budget of around $120 a night and want to have the best possible stay in central los angeles you will not find a better place than the Shelter hotel! Great beds, great management. A perfect stay

The place was spotless. I was concerned from previous reviews that it may be dirty... but I already booked it so I hoped for the Best. I got it. It was modern and cute as well as spacious. It was close to downtown and every place was like 6 bucks to Uber it. Number one best thing was the free... More

I recently came to visit to my nephew who lives in Koreatown, and was fortunate enough to stumble upon the Shelter Hotel. I was thrilled to find this beautifully placed and appointed boutique, that is a real bargain with free parking, free wi-fi, and friendly attentive staff. Despite being located in the middle of a bustling, vital neighborhood, my room... More

There was a cockroach in my bathroom! Whenever I returned to my room at night, a guest across the way had a dog that would kept on barking (inside the room). Very annoying. When I was leaving, my car was blocked. The hotel attendant didnt do anything about it. He told me to call the tow truck myself...and point to... More

Wow. It is very disappointing to hear that you had such a bad experience. Missing a flight under any circumstances is horrible. I'm not quite sure why the attendant would not call the towing company, considering they arrive within minutes. Regarding the dog, we are a pet friendly hotel so barking does happen from time to time. I am not... More

Hotel is situated in a good location. Rooms are ok and free parking is a plus. The real asset of this property is the staff. Jason was very accommodating and went above and beyond to make our stay more comfortable. The guy that works the night/graveyard shift was great too (didn't get his name) He was very helpful. It is... More

We've been coming to the Shelter for five years and like it more each time. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and quiet. It's also nice to have adequate off-street parking. Over the years, Shelter has added some cozy common areas and a pool. Best of all is the location: in a largely residential area... More

Stayed here for one night, was pretty good. I think they've done the outside of the building pretty well, the location was good too, just a few minutes from 6th street. It's seems to be a converted apartment block which I think is why you can hear noise from other rooms and the street as well as the slightly quirky... More

My boyfriend and I went on a last minute trip and were able to check in early. The staff was all really helpful and we even got a better deal than online. The rooms are nice and spacious. Small improvements here and there needed, like with any hotel, but still an excellent stay. The king size bed was extremely comfortable.... More
