I booked our trip on travelocity before I actually read the other reviews. Then when i read them i got scared and tried to change my booking, but realized it was too late and that i would have ended up paying for this room anyway even if i canceled. Since I could not afford that i just prayed for the best and packed my own sheets, towels, and waterproof mattress and pillow covers. Well when i got to the room, i was pleasantly surprised. I mean it was not a 5 star resort or anything like that, but the room was clean, the bathroom was new and clean, and there was also a microwave and refrigerator, and they were clean and looked new. The carpet looked decent, the bathroom floor had nice new tile and was clean as well. I think the sink counter was granite, or a great imitation at least! The beds seemed new and comfortable. The furniture was old and cheap and not in the best condition, but who's there for the furniture? i don't use the dressers even if i'm in a nice hotel. So that didn't really matter to me even though it was not pretty to look at. We didn't want to spend our trip in the room anyway. Location is great! And even though the neighborhood doesnt look great, it's kinda in the cut. The pool looked creepy. In our room there was a shower curtain, but no liner so every time we showered the floor got soaked, but that was fine, because we had our own towels so we used theirs for the floor. (FYI-u might wanna bring towels).
Breakfast... Coffee was coffee... donuts were....... extra moist... almost mushy.. they gave us a whole dozen for 2 adults and 2 children bc we missed breakfast.. it was a nice gesture but the donuts went to waste.. they were bad...if u want donuts Krispy Kreme is on the corner or crenshaw and Martin Luther King blvd.
So.. we followed my daughter up the elevator one day and found ourselves in what i assumed was the "bad" part of the motel... it looked really old and creepy.. there was a smell in the halls. and it was just scary. we noticed that the rooms in that area didn't have the silver doors with the airplane on it like the ones in the area we stayed. So, my advice would be that if u don't need or can't afford all the fancy 5 star stuff , and u just need a place to store ur stuff, sleep, and shower, then as long as u get a room with the silver door and the airplane, , then it is well worth the stay at that price.
I was actually very happy considering what some other reviews said. i thought there were going to be bed bugs, roaches and skin disease waiting for me in a stinky moldy dirty old room that looks like something u see in a 3rd world country in the movies... Thank God i was wrong! (even though there was a wild chihuahua in the parking lot one morning!-he was cute though!)
