I am so impressed with Nazneen's professionalism. Nazneen made every effort to make sure I had a clean room at 12:30 PM (arriving early) and modestly stated, "This is my job." Sophie and Natalie was just as courteous and pleasant. Although the rooms are alittle run down the staff makes me come back again and again.

My son goes to usc so we have always tried to stay here,but usually it's booked. I would say it's a little like a Fairfield inn room. All the staff are very friendly and the property was very clean. My husband and son swam in the pool. Continental breakfast was served in the office, so it's best to bring it... More

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the campus. Having booked the hotel last minute the check in process was very smooth and even traveling around at night despite the questionable neighborhood wasn't too worrisome. Considering the two star ranking this hotel is above average and worth giving a shot, especially if you just need a place to... More

I've stayed here many times. Nothing but good things to say! Nazneen was professional, patient, and courteous. And Maria (head of housekeeping?) was equally so. She even remembered me from my last stay. I would compare it favorably with the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Seriously.

The lady who checked us in is named Nazneen and she is a beautiful person. The room is clean and there's a fridge, microwave, continental breakfast and a pool so we're happy. Also, it shares a parking lot with a noodle house and Nazneen was nice enough to tell us that we get a 10% discount as guests - we... More

Stayed for 2 nights to visit the local LA museums. For downtown LA, the price was reasonable. Easy to find, safety was not an issue. Room was large and very clean. No view, unless you count the parking lost behind the motel, but the grounds are landscaped and maintained well. Breakfast was donuts and coffee or juice, nothing special, but... More
