You're not staying in luxury with this one. It's clean but the room was a bit old and a little bit shabby but it was bearable. There's a lot of small details throughout the hotel that added to the shabbiness. One of the elevators was out of order and there is this sign that said they reserve the right to... More

The hotel is an convenient location , small stores and a few restaurants neary by. The parking for $4.00 is a great deal for this area. Rooms are spacious and clean. The front desk is friendly. However the internet is too slow and as a business traveller I ended up going to a fed ex nearby at tokyo town to... More

The whole place is pretty shoddy - the elevator is snail's pace slow, furniture and decor outdated. My room was spacious and clean, but missing a curtain which let a freezing draft in all night, forcing me to keep the noisy heater on. Proximity to Union Station and friendly staff were the only pluses. However be careful of the area... More

Needed a hotel close to China Town due to a trip to San Francisco. We stayed one night before the trip and one night after. We got two completely different hotel rooms. Before the trip we were booked into a room at the front of the hotel with a fabulous view and when we returned we got one facing the... More

The main plus is location to the Union bus station. We stayed one night because on the next day we had our bus to San Francisco. So that location was perfect for us. You can smoke in the room. Good choice if you on the budget.

Good hotel in the location of downtown L.A the hotel is very simple and basic. If your looking for fancy or modern maybe this isn't a good choice but if your on a budget or don't care about fancy go with this hotel

This hotel is all about location, value and service. My "average" rating may seem a little unfair. My wife and I arrived on a 14 hour flight to LA early in the morning and the excellent staff at Metro Plaza let us check in at 09:30. This enables us to grab a quick nap and a shower before heading out... More

The hotel is really close to the Union bus and train station so very convenient. The rooms are large and the bathrooms really large. Air con is good. The place is clean and quiet and the workers are organised and helpful. The decor is a bit dated but everything is well maintained and up to scratch. It is very close... More

I have stayed here several times and always find the rooms large, clean, quiet, pleasant and very affordable. The rooms are not new but solid quality. Philippe the Original restaurant is just around the corn er and shouldn't be missed unless you are vegetarian.

Walked to the hotel from the train station; as an older woman, I wouldn't have done that alone late at night, however. We were greeted and made welcome by the desk clerk, who handled our reservation quickly and efficiently. No one available to help with bags (we arrived after 10 PM) although we did see someone doing that during daytime... More
