This was a great hotel. The room was big and clean. We got there at 3pm no issues with parking, check in was fast, the woman at the counter was very friendly. We did have an issue with the TV but it was fixed with in 2 minutes of calling the front desk. The free breakfast was great too. If... More

We booked a room (2 queens) for one night. Arrived late evening so the area was very empty and the hotel exterior looked a bit run down from the outside HOWEVER once we were in the lobby, everything was very neat and clean. Check-in was quick and friendly, the gentleman that assisted us was great. The hallways and elevator have... More

When I drove up to the hotel I didn't have high expectations, but once inside it turned out to be quite nice. The room was newly renovated and quite comfortable. The breakfast was better than average hotels/motels of this caliber, though still heavy on packaged foods. Parking was not easy, there is limited space in the main garage. There is... More

Rooms are cool , clean , and really big. The location is also nice , not too far from downtown. The parking is free , and the parking employee is really helpful. The AC is a bit noisy . The price is high but acceptable for LA.

No frills but I have stayed twice now. The free internet works, check in was slow due to 1 staff on desk and 1 person ahead of me arguing with him. I think the staff is poorly trained in guest service. The friendliest person between both stays was the gentleman checking me out on June 14th. The room is clean... More

Decent location but the room, inspire of how clean it looked, there was a funny smell especially in the bathroom. Halls and elevator very old and smelly but overall, staying here allowed us to enjoy our Korean cuisine and it wasn't difficult to find our way to Santa Monica pier area and back.

The location was great to access Hollywood/universal studios but the outer appearance of the hotel was a bit sketchy. The elevator and hallways were clearly dated and the old smell proved it. Luckily the room's appearance was better than the rest of the hotel but also had a funny smell. Breakfast is complimentary but consists of cereal and bread items... More
