I looked high and low for a less expensive hotel that was not a Hotel 6, or the like. Royal Pagoda, in LA's Chinatown, really fit the bill. It is well located, near downtown. It is clean and quiet. Wonderful, helpful staff. They gave us a very early check-in, so that my parents could rest a bit before getting ready... More

Avoid this disgusting and extremely unprofessionally run motel. I booked this place for my husband and I because, at first glance, I saw a few good reviews on Trip Advisor and it was close to the stadium. I now sincerely wish I'd been a bit more thorough before I booked the room. The person at the front desk was extremely... More

Booked 3 rooms for 2 nights for my wife and kids. Showed up at front desk and was ignored for 30 min. Maids and maintenance man yelled for manager to come down. He was in a heated discussion with some other customer at there room. Something was going on drugs or prostitution. When confronted by me and another woman waiting... More

I was terribly disappointed by customer service, I forgot 3 items in the shower (expensive products) and I came back the day after to take them, but he said that the maids had certainly laid the products .. and then I complain by emails and the answers was really really non appropriate.

Had this place only been about $79 a night, I wouldn't complain, but for the price (about $140 a night) it was a rip off. We were placed on the second floor, and there's no elevator. Not only did we have suitcases, we had camera equipment. Luckily for us, a nice young man in the lobby (another guest, not staff)... More

Sorry you had a terrible stay. Many of your problems could have been solved if you just let us know before you check out. There are many things we could have helped you with such as: give you a different room. You could have requested a bottom floor on your reservation. These things can be accommodated in advance.

We recently came to Los Angeles to take care of some business on short notice, this time in the company of our two dogs.

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

Hello Amanda: First of all thank you for staying with us. I do apologize for the manager for being short. Its just that our parking is at a premium so we really need to have everyone park perfectly or someone will have to walk pretty far to park their car.

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.
