When I arrived there was absolutely no problem with my reservation, which is nice because I tend to get problems during my arrivals. My room was clean and I thought I could be comfortable there for the next three days. The breakfast the next morning looked really delicious (fresh made waffles) and the employees were very nice. The only thing... More

This is an older hotel that seems to be at a halfway mark in renovation—the walls and ceilings were freshly painted and carpet was in good condition, but the furniture looked like thrift store markdowns (peeling paint, broken knobs). TV sets were ancient, and the remote control was held together with tape. The beds were clean with crisp white sheets... More

Great location, area is not so good, but as long you drive you will be fine, close to main attractions, make sure you book a non-smoking room. Some have very nice balconies facing to the street. International and local guests in house.

It is a nice place to be hosted. The building is not located in the best area, but when you have a car, everything stay easy. The place is acceptable, but the room is not appear to be totally clean. However, the beds were comfortable and warm. The receptionists were rude, not polite. The impression it was that they were... More

2.5 stars would be an adequate rating My lovely, sweet and well intentioned wife whom is my best friend really meant well and I think thought this was the Holiday Inn where we frequent.... We walked in and were immediately overwhelmed by smoker stench and then some. Apparently she got a smoking room somehow.... We called the desk and they... More

I've stayed in some inexpensive hotels that were very well cared for, but this is not one of those hotels. Yes, LA is an expensive place to visit, but I would not stay here again no matter what the price point. The first room they booked us into had obviously not even been cleaned. There were still other people's food... More

I travel a lot for work (4 or 5 star) and also privately (incl hostels) and therefore have usually a good idea of what I can expect for the price I pay and in this case this is really off! First of all, I booked originally at the North and when arriving was told they had a water leak and... More

We had a good, basic stay at competitive price. At first, we were confused (as no doubt intended) that this was a Holiday Inn Express... but after booking, I realized my error and was prepared for the worst. However, the location was good for our purposes and the facilities were adequate for us. We had a reasonable, quiet stay and... More

The location was terrible!!! It was a really dirty, dingy and scary neighborhood, with weird people walking on the streets. The hotel was the same. Dirty carpets smelling really bad, broken shower, weird people around. We've found 2 cockroaches in the room and I keep asking myself how I could stay there. Terrible staff, the guy whom was attending us... More
