I was gonna write a long review but the picture of the bathroom is all you need. Putrid bathrooms. Room infested with flies. The owner didn't want to give us a refund, but we mentioned calling the health department and he immediately refunded $35 of the $70 paid. Do yourself a favor and keep searching. I am writing this literally... More

Actually located in quite good location in south LA, if you have a car. Quiet motel but not so clean. Room wasn't made everyday and they should change sheets. For price I paid I expected at least room was cleaner.

In the middle of south LA getto. If you are a tourist, you should treat it as a attraction. Clean but noisy. Good free parking. I liked it but do not expect to much. Close to downtown and airport. Car is a must.

Clean and comfortable. TV and Air Conditioning was working perfectly. No luxuries but I didn't expect it. Very good for a motel. Neighbourhood a little dirty and smelly. And I was the only white guy in the area :) But I felt save for the whole stay. The police station is close.

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
