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. Sorry you... More

We recently came to Los Angeles to take care of some business on short notice, this time in the company of our two dogs. Our usual hotel in Chinatown was booked solid but at their suggestion, we tried their other property down the street, The Royal Pagoda. The girl who checked us in was really friendly and helpful, as were... More

Hello Mel C; Thank you for staying at the Royal Pagoda Motel. Glad you brought your dogs to stay with us. Just FYI.. There is a park only 1 block from the property that many people bring their dogs to just walk in the morning. We hope to see you again soon. Regards, Royal Pagoda Motel More

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. Glad you found our location convenient for your needs. Regards,... 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

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.
