I fly into LAX and did a search of hotels near LAX. Their ambitious right up said 4 miles. .. anyway I booked it. Turns out it is an hour away from LAX. I fly out of the same airport early. I called Priceline to cancel reservation that I just made 10 minutes earlier. Priceline called the hotel and told... More

I would not recommend this motel for anyone. The pictures don't do any justice for the quality of our stay. PROS: - conveniently located a 5 minute drive to the Los Angeles Memorial Center - Free available parking - Comfortable clean bed and sheets CONS: -WiFi barely works and doesn't stay connected. I just ended up not using it all... More

Not gonna lie here. This place was clean and comfortable but the area was really ghetto. I was very scared of staying here for the night. Did not know the area was like this because we are not from LA. There were warning signs everywhere like, no prostitution, no selling drugs etc. People working there was very nice. And the... More

Pros: Everything was remodeled and friendly staff. This motel was much better than we expected. Me and my brother made a spontaneous trip to LA and had to find a motel for cheap. We were expecting a crummy room and bad customer service but it was the opposite. Cons: Far from the city and beaches. About 30min drive to Manhattan... More

To be honestly I wouldn't give any rank to this motel at all. If you don't want to get lots of red and ugly bites of bedbugs DON'T go to this motel. We had many bites on all of our body and they are still red and visible after 10days. We have told this at the office but they didn't... More

The factor that makes this motel so unsatisfactory is that its in a dangerous location. I was scared to walk around at night and had to be cautious at any time of the day. The bathtub leaked some kind of brown fluid. The TV only had a few channels which were mostly static-y. The room appeared clean. There was free... More

I would never stay there again. If I was a single I would never stay here. Staff is nice, but warning signs and cameras are all over the building.The room was clean and the bed was ok. The TV was fuzzy the whole time we were there.There is free internet and free parking which was good. Neighborhood is scary! No... More

The room was extremely clean and smelled nice. They need to upgrade their television and add a few carpets to make it more homey. Overall I enjoyed my one night stay here and would stay here again if I come back to Los Angeles.
