The manager on duty when we checked in was kind of short with us & a bit micro-managing (followed us to the nearly empty parking lot to police my parking). The room was clean and they had coffee and water at the front desk. We had a sporadic guacamole smell come through the a/c, no idea where that came from...?... More

A good location for me to travel around the city, with clean and comfortable rooms. Looking for affordable and well kept rooms is difficult in this part of L. A. I slept well each night and was able to go out in Chinatown or take an uber to many other night spots.

We were taking in a Dodger game and wanted to walk China Town. Everything was real close by. We had brought our 6 month puppy and hoping he would be OK, however, he did not want to be alone. So one of us had to stay behind to "babysit". We were thankful no one complained about his barking, every now... More

Hello Alby: Glad at least you liked the excellent customer service you received from our staff. We checked into the noise you referred to but we were unable to find it. Also for the neon lighting.. Our curtains are "BLACK OUT" curtains. This means that NO light will go through them.. Simply closing the curtains will cut off all light... More

On the Broadway strip of Chinatown, downtown LA- under 100 dollars for an extremely clean room in a well maintained beautifully appointed Chinese hotel. Friendly staff, close to everything- bathroom a little tight but everything you need.

Really pleasant place to stay in the middle of LA. Close to Dodger Stadium but a twenty minute severe uphill walk. Hotel room is standard mid price US fare but clean and good air con. Great welcome at check in with good advice on where to eat. Fully recommended.
