We booked for one night only because the price was to good for the L.A. average, so to be sure not to have a bad surprise we wanted to try one night but after our arrival we decided to stay 2 more night. The place is clean and the boss is absolutely a Sunny boy :) Breakfast and WiFi are... More

This quaint and cozy motel is the place to stay if you have business or travel near downtown Los Angeles. This motel is located near Dodger Stadium, Cedar Sinai Hospital, Korea Town, Paramount Pictures and Staple Center. At first my wife was unsure about staying here due to the location; However, once we got into our room, she was extremely... More

This is a little gem of a motel. The people are friendly and the rooms, although a bit dated are immaculate. The continental breakfast is well appointed and there are many choices for warm beverages. We will stay here again. And again. And again.

It's kind of weird to stay motel, because I stayed in so many 4-5 star hotels, there's actually not much difference I can make. My girlfriend and I went to visit LA for the first time, mainly for sightseeing and to celebrate New Years. So I found this (hotel) online judging how it's rated, and it's definitely the truth. It...

We stayed here one night in December. Easy parking outside the rooms. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Very pleasant, helpful owners. Good breakfast was provided in reception (to take back to the room). Also hot drinks available 24 hours in reception. We asked for a quiet room, and we didn't hear any traffic. Free wifi, flat screen TV,... More

The reviews are over graded on this inn. The location is beside Korean town, it is a dead area. It is safe . It is clean and likely just refurnished with poor quality. The facilities are very basic. The bed is comfortable can have a good sleep with clean and new bed sheet and pillow. But it is very noisy... More

Stayed here for one night before doing the Rock N Roll Half Marathon. We got a very good nights sleep, it was very quiet, in a safe neighborhood. Rooms were very clean and the outside was very appealing. Front desk staff were very nice. Great location as it was only a few miles from the Staples Center where our race... More

This is a extremely welcoming hotel in central Los Angeles and a good base for sight seeing. The family run hotel has a manager and staff that are professional and helpful at all times. The rooms have been recently refurbished and updated and are excellent value for money. The breakfast is of a high standard and there is a 24... More

Lovely motel run by some very lovely owners. Clean, spacious, well equipped room with great staff. The manager saw me waiting for a cab and ran out with a selection of cold drinks to sip on as I waited haha. Bed was really comfortable as well which was great after my flight. Thank you!
