We stayed here in February, the property is in need of a face lift. I would have expected more being in Hollywood. The room was dated, and offered subpar accommodations, and the mattress was very uncomfortable. They are doing some kind of renovations and the crew started at around 6:30am. They were very noisy, and even after calling the front... More

I was looking specifically for something near downtown with free parking, free breakfast & a pool. This fit the bill, however... Location was fine; not a great area but no worse than expected and downtowns can usually be dicey anyway. Front desk service left a lot to be desired; would it really hurt you to smile and maybe not smoke... More

As another reviewer stated, this is a basic hotel. I did not spend much time in the hotel, so for me, this was adequate. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff did not appear friendly, but that is on them. It was quite noisy at night, and I thought it was strange that the management did... More

Both Fire exits have locked gates at bottom of stairs! The most expensive "flee bag" I have ever paid for! They do not answer their phone; from room or my cell phone. Hazardous construction debris & scaffolding at only acceptable stairs to 2nd floor. This hotel is a dethtrap! Save yourself & loved ones- stay away!!!

Booked a family room which was three queen beds, we had room 200. As others have mentioned, this is basic as basic can be, but the price is quite attractive if just after a place to sleep. The free breakfast consists of corn flakes, a waffle machine which once cooked are like cardboard with the okay maple syrup. This breakie... More

We booked this hotel through Expedia one week before we planned on going to LA. The price is reasonable and their services are not bad. They provide free breakfast which includes waffles and cereals. Since we didn't drive in LA and we are two young ladies, safety is our biggest concern. We checked the crime rate online before we went... More

We (2 adults) were in room 116. Aside from being wakened at literally midnight to move our car (we had to park in a half-space due to a large SUV taking up our space), we had a major problem w/bedbugs. Wife had a dozen or more bites. Reported it to the Manager on duty whose attitude was only lukewarm to... More

We had 3 adults and 2 children and booked this hotel because it could accommodate us. The room was basic but huge with 3 queen beds and a bathroom with a separate toilet, 2 sinks and tub. There was a fridge and a couch and table (not a dining table) and plenty of room to spread out. Lots of places... More

Pros- Although the neighborhood was a bit sketchy, it's a few blocks to a fun area that reminded me of Tijuana- people selling their wares on the sidewalk, including some food carts. There are also a couple of discount stores for really cheap groceries within walking distance (if you like to walk). Parking at the hotel was not a problem.... More
