Good location. Walking distance to USC, CVS pharmacy and many restaurants. free parking, free wifi. On the web site, they will accept AAA discount when we check in, unfortunately but they don't. Everything was OK.

Very close to university of Southern California and so this place was the best location for me. The staff were very courteous. The room was very clean and the A.C was very effective. I spoke to them before booking and they also offered a special rate for that period and so suggest you talk to them directly to know the... More

I stayed at this location for it's proximity to the Galen Center at USC. I wanted to avoid the parking garages and heavy traffic by staying here. close to the 110 and the 10 interstates. It was close to public transportation including the metro rail. Perfect for getting to exposition park and farther areas of USC. The check in process... More

This hotel was convenient in that it was close by the venue we were going to. I did not enjoy the constant law enforcement helicopter circling throughout the night. Bed was okay. I've stayed at a Motel 6 that was better than this.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent stay. We value and appreciate all of our Guests feedback. Our location is very secure. The reason why there is so much patrolling through out the day and night it's because of all the events. Within this area there is always something going on the police and securities are always around to make... More

This simple cheaply built motel style establishment is well located and reasonably clean. You don't get very much for approx $190 US per night, but such is LA downtown hotels in the summer. . It has a decent pool, which is nice. The aircon in our room sounded like a sick Dash 8 aircraft, so we complained and were eventually... More

The cost is great especially for LA. I wasn't too sure about the neighborhood but had no problems the two times I stayed there. The rooms are outdated but it was clean and well kept. The front desk staff was nice and efficient.

The counter is gracious, willing to help and answer questions. The room is not big but clean. The location is best as it is close to USC and convenient for eating and shopping. Overall I enjoyed the stay.

I was actually impressed by this hotel room. It's really dated, but it was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. I had a queen room next to the pool and it was a very large room with a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was friendly and helpful and they had a decent free continental breakfast and coffee in... More

Stayed here for one night during a visit to USC. Not impressive from the outside, but rooms are spacious enough and very clean. If you're looking for a less expensive alternative to the Radisson down the street, this is the place for you. With this being a motel, you get a bit more street noise in the morning than with...
