My husband and I had to go to CA to see a dying uncle, we go to the hotel at about midnight we couldn't watch tv because you had to be a rocket scientist to turn it on. The bathroom was in serious need of repair. There was at least an 1 1/2" space under the outside door. The fan... More

I enjoyed my stay,because the staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were comfortable as well as the hotel is in close proximity to some great entertainment places, shopping centers, restaurants, and the beach.

Run down hotel. I would give 2.5 stars. Convenient for free parking, location, free internet and free breakfast. Bed was really uncomfortable, some lamps we're not working. My room was extremely noisy. Definitively a one night stop. Not terrible but below average.WiFi works but you have to find the right router that works better for your room.

Poor quality rooms, very old and worn out furniture and fixtures. Bathroom tiles are discolored- have stains all over. Bathroom wasn't even clean when we arrived- had to request to change room. TV doesn't work- it's just there for display. free breakfast is okay- usual continental fair.

We stayed at this hotel on a stop over in LA to Australia. We do this trip often however this was the first time at this hotel and we will never stay there again. The hotel is a budget hotel, and in that way it is fine. It has a 24/7 office, clean areas and a very basic room. Wifi... More

Everything was pretty clean and at an economical price. We were looking to stay in LA in between flights..nothing fancy and close to places we could walk to eat at. They have an airport shuttle that runs during normal hours so make sure you find out when the shuttle is running before you fly in, otherwise you will be stuck... More

The staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was average. The room was not very clean in the corners and there was a musty smell to it. The furniture is all nicked and well worn. I probably would not stay here again.

Stayed for one night prior to cruise. The room was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was good and we enjoyed the location. We were able to walk to the Manhattan beach pier from the hotel. It's of places to eat close by and the staff were quite friendly.

Granted, you get what you pay for and this is a good price for the area but it has been a nightmare. No lights over sink, Coffee pot didn't work, Internet not at all reliable. Bath faucet only worked on shower. The worst was when my key didn't work and I went to the front desk to get a new... More

I done a lot of traveling and I have stayed in plenty of hotels... this one is absolutely the worst one!!! I understand that we probably got the room cheap with the package... More
