Pulled pork that was slow cooked, seasoned hamburger, ham, rice, beans, waffles, cereal, potatoes and eggs and more. Free pool table. Cook and waiter so nice plea sent atmosphere. So glad we... More

This hotel was good and close to all amenities the only thing that lets it down is the breakfast which is served two doors up at the Taco Bell. It says the Taco Bell opens at 7.30 am but the guy (who is quite rude) who runs it opens when HE feels like it and half of the time when... More

There is both good news and bad news to share about this motel. The good news is that the staff is friendly and helpful with a good sense of humor. The location is also good if you want to be close to the "action" of Hollywood. There is a small pool that provides a little oasis for kids and those... More

This motel is just off Hollywood Blvd so location is great. There is a metro station 5 mins walk away if you are not driving. The rooms are very clean and basic, TV, cable, WiFi, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Nice little pool. Breakfast is included in price and is served a couple of doors down in a taco restaurant....

My husband and I stayed at the downtowner for a few nights and found it pretty good for what you pay for! The staff were super friendly and accommodating. The motel was clean and in an amazing location. The breakfast was awesome (and free) where you could have eggs, hashbrowns, beans, toast, cereal AND make your own waffles with their... More

Location is relatively good, a walking distance from the nearest Red Metro line and 2 stops from Chinese Theatre. The place really looks like it was transformed into a motel. Rooms are old and smelly. shower is outdated and the big old TV completes the 80's look and feel. Our room was facing the sun, so the room was hot... More

Upon arrival we were so nicely greeted! We were given so much amazing information. What to and what not to do around the area. We were taken to our room and once we tried the shower, the water wouldn't come out. We mentioned this to the office at around 9.30pm and in 15 minutes they had been in and put... More

I was out in LA for a long week end looking at colleges. It was dirty and noisy all night. We left after one night. We would not have stayed the first night given a choice. We arrived late in the day and were unable to make other arrangements. I never met the "lovely couple" referred to by one reviewer.... More

What's most important to me when selecting a hotel is cleanliness, affordability, and location. Our room and bathroom were clean. The price was right. And, the location wasn't bad although I would have preferred something closer to West Hollywood because that turned out to be my favorite spot in LA. There aren't as many lodging choices in West Hollywood, and... More
