This hotel (if you want to call it that) is the absolute worst! Everything they show is a lie... Says it's downtown LA, there are sites nearby, clean, etc... Well it is located in the middle of a flea market, there are literally hobos lined up in tents on the street, and it is freaking disgusting! There is a gate... More

We did not make it to our reservation because we had car trouble. I called and pleaded to not be charged for the room for the day but they wouldn't allow it. All they said was: "You can't cancel!". I asked if we could move our reservation to the following week. He said "No!". They didn't even apologize for the... More

If your a Mexican wanna be gangster, then fine, stay here. Because these idiots here, pimps and prostitutes got like 4-5 rooms with ppl coming in and out all night, this place is not a hotel for decent ppl. Sirens around the neighborhood all night. Definitely overpriced for the location and clientele they have here. F this place. Bad decisions!!!

This hotel is disgustingly dirty. No sheet on bed. Only blanket and bedspread. Dirt on floor. Black hand prints on walls and doors. Toilet filthy and hair everywhere.clerk a counter just says when you have a concern. That's the way management wants it. We were bitten by bed bugs or fleas not sure which! Just horrible hotel. It's a total... More

They charged us for an extra room, and refuse to cancel the extra charge. And judging from prior reviews, they have done this before. We are currently filing a suit against them in court. Be careful, these are shady people. We reserved and paid for our room on Priceline a week before, and when we got there we wanted to... More

We stayed here the last week and i have to say it is the worst place i have ever stayed at. The neighbourhood in which its located is very poor and uncomfortable, with homeless people lining the exit of the hotel waiting for people to leave then hassling them for something, It is only our third night here and it...

This has to be the worst hotel in LA especially the family that owns this place. As you can see from all the bad reviews they all sound true to me. I had the worst customer service getting yelled at by just asking a question. Very rude to their customers they treat you like dirt. Rooms are dirty and the... More

It's not easy to find an affordable hotel in the downtown area that's safe and not disgusting. The room was a little dirty, but overall comfortable enough for a 2 night stay. The parking is free and available, so that's a plus as well.

The hotel was what I expected for the price: clean enough, and the bed was comfortable. I'm not hard to please, and yet the staff of this place is rude, not accommodating at all, and possibly insane. There was a problem with my payment, and every time I called to speak to the owner, he yelled at me, interrupted me... More

I can see that this place has been unfairly reviewed by some people. I think it depends on what you are looking for when you rate this place. Me, I travel to LA on business, I am looking for a good price, close to the fashion district, and the most important, somewhere clean. This hotel was clean, not updated with... More
