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

Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Room was good sized and clean. Noise was minimal. The included breakfast was small but sufficient. The staff was helpful and friendly. Some negatives worth noting: The neighborhood has several homeless people, beds were on the firm side and the light from the very well lit parking lot easily sneaks past the curtains. All... More

Location is awesone, I live about 60 miles north of LA, so when I want to go out to a club in LA, I try to find a hotel close to hollywood to avoid the drive home. This place is ok, its not fancy, but its clean and the staff is very nice. One thing to remember, they charge 3%... More

Stayed there for 7 nights 14/8 to 21/8/14. good sized rooms for two people. wifi was fast enough and good reception in the rooms. Room had a balcony and overlooked noisy Alvarado st..(BRING YOUR EARPLUGS). To stay at this hotel you really need a car. There is a coin operated laundry as well as a microwave in a cabinet at...

We made a group reservation and all our guests were satisfied with the service. Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Free breakfast was a plus. Also, the hotel is close to Downtown L.A. and Hollywood area. The pool was clean and all the staff were really helpful.

Hotel was ok - what do you expect really from a motel in this area. Had a bed to sleep, wasn't the cleanest room though. What was really annoying though that I had misplaced my bill and it took them over 2 months to send it to me? Actually I still haven't received it and am still waiting.

PLEASE STAY AWAY. POOR furniture. PORN channel. Haunted room. BURN blanket and carpets. Unknown garbage pickers are inside the corridor. Yellow water, if you press orange juice vending machine. Lots of surprises. Please stay away from this WORST hotel. Find elsewhere.

It took almost one hour to check in. It was after 2PM,way after people checked out. Room was clean,but very minimum. No safe deposit box in the room. Feel like I have to take all the valuable with me when I leave my room. 2nd night around midnight,someone try to break in from the terrace sliding door. My husband went... More
