Mold in the showers, construction also going on with power tools in neighboring rooms. hotel did not advise this was happening during booking. it really sucks. Found my outside door to my patio open one day also. be sure to look at the curtains for boogers too. i found a bunch that were dried on.

This would have been wonderful stay except that a major renovation was underway, and construction was taking place in the room next to ours. This meant hammering and drilling all day in that room AND on the shared wall! It was so loud that it was impossible to work, converse, or have a phone call, much less relax or nap.... More

On the plus side the room was clean and spacious. The beds were super comfortable, enough towels and a good steam iron with board. The TV had a good selection of channels. The bathroom was small and dated, but clean and functional (except one early morning where there was no hot water, they fixed it the same day, but unfortunately... More

My rating is mainly for the issue I had when checking in and apparent miscommunication between front desk and parking attendant. I get to the hotel about 2:45 parked my car in hotel parking lot and was planning to wait the 15 minutes til check in time as stated online. A man comes up to my car telling me I... More

Stayed here 2 nights and it was perfect. The hotel is located in the heart of Chinatown, and is easily walkable from Union Station. The surrounding neighborhood looks a little scruffy at first but it is quiet and feels perfectly safe. Check-in was a breeze; the lady working at the front desk acknowledged our room request and also gave us... More

Downtown LA is pretty creepy, especially at night. Surprisingly, not a lot is open in Chinatown at night. Plenty of homeless panhandlers. The hotel was OK. The bed was extremely comfortable. The tv was new and there was a fridge. However, the bathroom was old and small. The breakfast was OK< but the lady serving was so friendly and anxious... More

Needed a place for one night close to USC Health Sciences/Norris ($15 cab ride). Older hotel, but felt safe tucked inside mini mall type building. Have to use room key to operate elevators. Was quiet and clean. New furnishings and fixtures. Plumbing older, but plenty of hot water. Great location near downtown, but you're not paying downtown hotel price and... More

The Front Desk personnel were very professional and helpful. They made the check-in process very smooth. I needed to stay downtown because I had a doctor's appointment at nearby USC Spine Center. Because of the notorious downtown traffic during rush hour I needed to stay downtown. This Chinatown Best Western hotel fit the bill. It was convenient (4.5 miles from... More

This hotel is in bustling Chinatown but is very quiet and comfortable. Parking is underneath, safe and very accessible. The value is good without fanfare and fancy furnishings but good solid amenities and service that made our stay memorable.

My two elementary age daughters and I stayed here as we enjoyed a non-Disney vacation highlighted by the Pasadena Rose Parade.
