I stayed for 2 nights, so I could explore the (San Fernando) Valley. Motel 6/Studio 6 is pet friendly, which was the primary reason I picked to stay with them. The hotel's location and clientele were the worst part of my experience. The parking lot is also tight and unfortunately ripe with running into not-so-savory people and situations. Once in... More

Due to business concerns I needed a place to stay for an extended period in the Los Angeles area, at a price that would be cost effective. All of the name brand hotels in the area I needed to be are super expensive. I wasn't really considering staying at a motel 6, but as I looked around I found something... More

Start off with checking in and the staff are extremely rude. The rooms have exposed wood as the base for the bathroom sink, stains, dents in wall/unpatched/unpainted, baby roaches in the kitchen, you have to stand on a chair in some rooms to adjust the air conditioning, open trash bins in the back make smell and bugs a problem. I... More

We were travelling across California and wanted to stay in LA for a week, We went with this motel due to staying in many studio 6's/motels 6's before, This one was great, a big couple of rooms, big TV, nice kitchenette Everything that we needed The only down fall is the parking, not much space

I opted to stay at this property because they allow dogs and there were some average and good reviews online, and anything else within a reasonable driving distance of quality accommodations is too pricey for my wallet. Staff is friendly and helpful especially housekeeping. The front-desk guy gave me options for rooms which was very nice. Room was as expected... More

From the street, yes, it looks unpleasant but once you find the way in- through the east side of the property, it still looks a bit dodgey in the small back parking area, however entering into the courtyard which is just a nice clean looking pool you should change your mind. I wished I stayed here longer as the pool... More

I have stayed at Studio 6 in other cities, so I chose to stay here instead of the regular Motel 6. It was disappointing. This place looks like an old apartment building that has been turned in to Studio 6. It is not a good area, I was very worried about leaving my car parked behind the building. It did... More

High crime area; not very secure; attentive staff; room had mildew all over it. The sheets were nasty; what made it worse was I woke up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and when I turned on the lights, cockroaches scattered under the dresser and any other dark place they could find. Not very clean.

Positives: Decor, Comfort, Friendly Staff, Clean Negatives: Toilet Seat not secure, Toilet was refilling through-out the night; needs to be adjusted. $15 to Park; not mentioned during reservations.

This was another hotel that my company put me up in and purchased through Hotels.com My opinion of this booking site is that it is a rip-off. Book directly with the hotel and look for discounts like AAA, etc. This hotel was relatively close to my place of work, so that was about all I enjoyed about it. PROS: Proximity... More
