We decided to stay at the shelter hotel because it was a reasonably priced hotel based on the fact my wife and I were not planning on staying in the hotel for too much time. Upon arrival, we found a parking space in the garage (limited spaces - 12-15 parking spaces available). We made our way to the lobby via... More

I'm very sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I am surprised to hear that there was a cleanliness issue with the room considering we frequently have the carpets washed and regularly add fresh paint to the rooms and restrooms. Also, we have a very good pest control company that proactively checks for issues like bugs in rooms. Had... More

This is one of the best places we've stayed in LA so far. Very modern, clean, minimalist and quiet. The bed and the pillows were super comfortable. Three blocks away from Starbucks, McDonalds and Metro station (purple line) in a pretty safe area. They do need to improve their Wi-Fi signal, cause I could connect at all but we will... More

Incredible location and comfortable room! Great restaurants and bars within walking distance. Hop on the metro and you can be in Downtown LA in 15 minutes or Hollywood in 25. Highly recommended for the mobile, modern traveler. The concierge also spoke Spanish (big plus)

We decided on the shelter hotel as a cost-effective option based on its proximity to friends in the area, as well as its general location within the city in terms of the various places we wanted to go in the short amount of time we had in LA. The hotel is in a refabbed building necessarily designed to accommodate the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. Clearly, we dropped the ball on so many levels. What is most concerning is that you were treated poorly by our staff. WE pride ourselves on trying to give excellent service and if we did not provide that then we failed. I would like to have the opportunity to speak... More

I needed a place for three nights. After giving up on finding an affordable hotel anywhere near downtown LA, I chose this place as a reasonable compromise. The Shelter was a welcome find at two walkable blocks from the Wilshire/Normandy subway station. I especially appreciated the free underground garage, which was locked at 11:00 p.m., and kept me from having... More

Very pleased with the location of this hotel, close to two train lines which makes it easy to get around. Hotel grounds and rooms are very clean and well furnished. The staff have been fantastic and very helpful offering us printed maps and directions. The neighbour hood itself is a very nice place even at night to walk around. I... More

Shelter is located in LA, 457 S. Mariposa near Korea town. It is small, old but has been updated. Clean, quiet and reasonably safe. Parking limited but free. Wifi free but signal weak at times. Bed comfortable, bath spacious. Room nice size. Here are my criticisms: 1. No iron or ironing board in room. 2. Lighting in room too bright... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. Regarding a couple of the criticisms you provided, we do have hair dryers in all of the rooms. They were located in the Shelter bag below the vanity. We also provide irons and ironing boards to all guests upon request. If the front desk agent did not inform you of... More

We didn't want to spend too much on a hotel while in LA as we were planning on doing a lot of exploring. Some of the lower priced hotels we found looked awful & then we stumbled upon this little gem. The photos on the website looked lovely & very fitting to a young couple & so we decided to... More

Ok, so it's not 5 star...but, it's comfortable, conveniently located with lots of free parking. The room we had was great, with a large comfy bed, recently decorated bathroom, tv etc. no frills, but made for a good decent night sleep. You have to hire a car in LA, and while the local area isn't much to see, the hotel... More

Newly renovated but I think the money ran out during the renovation. The rooms have been freshly painted, new furniture but not finished well. No fridge in rooms. Phone in rooms but you can't use it to make calls?? Lots of residents living in hotel so it can be very noisy. No safes in rooms which as overseas visitor would... More
