The room was basic but clean - okay so far. No fridge or kettle, but a coffee machine and a working television. The thing that really annoyed me was the extremely noisy rooms ! I've stayed in cheap guesthouses and motels all over the world but never experienced something like this. Sleeping was just not possible! The people in the... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Hawaii. Desk staff was friendly and accommodating. I wanted a room close to the pool where Chevy Chase filmed movie with Christie Brinkley. I want able to get it but we were close. The phone and the toilet in the room did not work, but we waited until the next morning... More

Stayed for one night while visiting Anaheim for a convention event. Close to freeway, a bit of a rough guests, but security was able to handle the noise levels. Staff was friendly and courteous. Good for the price.

The room was horrible! It smelled, the carpet was nasty, and there was hair in the bathroom sink! So disappointed that American Express would even advertise such an hotel! Once you pay for the rooms there is no refund, so either leave or lose your money! I called to speak with an American Express representative and that was a waste... More

The pics do not really look like exactly what this place is, but none the less if you just need a place to crash for a day or two, then this is a OK place. This place was not bad NOR was it good. There is an on site bar so at last call hour, around 2:30 A.M. it got... More

i have stayed at this hotel twice, with a tour group. On both times, i was unhappy with this hotel. I am surprised that people actually want to stay here. I don't USUALLY stay at a hotel like this, but my groups often pick this one, so i have to join them. I felt my group could do better at... More

I stayed at this hotel for one reason only ... because I was writing an article on filming locations from 1980s movies. Norwalk, CA is a town in between Anaheim and Los Angeles and has the distinct honor of being in many well known movies from the 1980s. The nearby arcade/go cart attraction was featured in the movie, The Karate... More

I checked in to find out the man next to me was managing groups of workers living on the premises. People were in and out of his room having conversations right outside my window and one was smoking. I requested a quieter room but there was none so I asked for a refund so I could leave. The manager refused... More

Good decent motel to stay at for the night. The location isn't the best since it is far from most LA attractions but the price was unbeatable. Clean room with bathroom towels, shampoo, etc. Also had a spa/pool area Mostly international guests here for some reason,

My husband and I spent two nights here as part of a tour group. The hotel room was clean, quiet and the beds were comfortable, but the room itself was a bit cramped - there's not much space to open up luggage! The free wifi was very slow. And the in-house restaurant's food options were distinctly limited - our menu... More
