Just spent a week at The Stillwell and was very pleased with everything: price, location, staff, diner. Know going in that there are no frillls. We had excellent service, very clean rooms and John Cafe attached was great for breakfast! Free Wi Fi in the rooms which was great. Pickup at hotel for alot of LA attractions.

Stayed at this hotel in July 2014 for 2 nights. We were severely eaten by bed bugs in different rooms. Staff is rude and disrespectfully offering no help or sympathy. One agent was so rude to tell us he doesn’t care because the hotel passed inspection. A/C and refrigerator do not work. Most disgusting hotel.

The prices at this rundown hotel are far too much for the lousy air-conditioning and limited cable. You're lucky if you get a nice room with one bed let alone two. They are very strict on how many people per room, and you must wear wrist-bands to even go up the elevator after 6 O'clock. The time may vary but... More

The hotel is from 19th century. old switches.The air conditioner doesnt works. when i informed it to the lobby. the answer was " you will get good breeze if you open the window" I dont want anyone to tell me that." If you wanna stay closer to down town and you will spend very little time in hotel and you... More

I lived in this hotel for three months in 1967. $3.00 a night. Nice bar downstairs and a coffee shop. No telephone in room, but who needed it. I worked three blocks away, and I really missed living there after moving out and getting an apartment.

We lucked into a top-floor corner room. Lots of light from the windows on two sides of the room, which you could open and feel the breeze from outside. Cool view, being right in the city. Had a home bedroom feel with the two beds not facing the same direction like most places do, and a big wooden desk. Came... More

We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but it was spacious and I slept well. Our room had a decent size bathroom with a great shower (water pressure and fast hot water) but a small closet. The other same size room in our party had a tiny bathroom and bigger closet.

We spent the night here to visit the Staples Center for a Clippers. Though small and old, this hotel was very clean, beds comfortable and the staff pleasant & helpful. This place was by far the cheapest at $87. Two small double beds pretty much filled the room. There was a small chest of drawers, an apartment size refrigerator and... More

I came to this hotel with my family last night for my America's Got Talent audition, and the light wasn't even working in the bathroom. The pictures online are very deceiving. The room was very small and the beds aren't even comfortable and incredibly small. My bestfriend, who is only 90 pounds and my little sister who is 80 pounds... More

I was attending the L.A. Fit Expo and needed a moderate to low price hotel as I was on a budget as well as needing a decent rest stop for the duration of my stay at the LA Convention Center. I'd say this meets that. Upon entry after a 6.25 hrs of flight time, I got there 1:00 p.m. which... More
