It's not close to anything in special, but it's close to the subway, which is good in LA. Parking is free, but there's no spots for all the guests. So most ofthe nights I had to park across the street, also free for the guests. Good bathroom, good TV. Clean. Reasonable breakfast. Not the best neighborhood, not many options of... More

Thin walls (it might be attractive to those who you want to know more on their room neighbors) Uncomfortable toilet seat (you will understand what i mean once... More

The front desk staff were very efficient, check in/out was hassle free, advised us of how to use Metro/tap card. Very friendly staff, spacious rooms, 5 min walk to Metro, excellent location!

Very good with clean room and bathroom for a comfortable stay. Great central location in LA. You get a good clean feeling when walking into your room. Bedroom linens, pillows, towels are all nice and neat. Free parking, good internet connection, and a free continental breakfast bar on top floor. Centrally located in a nice, clean, and safe area.

Great view and great populated area to stay in. Excellent front desk who's name Travis I believe, very attentive towards guests. Although I had a rude experience with the manager assistant. Who's name was Malu I think or Mary. But great stay non the-less.

We have stayed at this property a few times. It is close to my daughter's apartment which is the reason we have gone to it more than once. When we first started staying here, it was pretty run down but the price and location was right. Within the last two years, they have remodeled and it now has beautiful rooms.... More

Major plus point is close proximity to the Metro red line and Metro 720 service - so if you're heading to the touristy spots like Hollywood, Rodeo Drive or the beach, the hotel offers very good convenience. Clean rooms and good amenities. Highly recommended for its value.
