Very surprised at all the bad reviews. Was just there last weekend. Stayed 2 nights while visiting LA. I'll admit I was a little worried because of so many bad reviews about the area and whatnot, but really, the area is decent. Parts of the area look a little sketchy, but no reason to be concerned because it's a pretty... More

The rooms here were actually pretty big. I used the 3 queen bed room and it was clean, spacious, and didn't smell. Make sure to book early the price changed 2 times as we were booking it. The parking is limited as well so get there early to park.

Stayed here in April for 5 nights, booked this place due to location, paid about 50$ per night. This included breakfast which consisted of cereal and waffles. The wifi was crap, needed a different code every day to access the wifi so it was very annoying, also it didn't work most of the time. It was great that the parking... More

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
