Ahh, where do I begin? After checking in, we were surprised as we walked through to our room. We had to find a way to explain to our 14 year old son about medical Marijuana and we believed it isn't supposed to be openly smoked. Thankfully he was turned off by the smell. OK it's a party place. 20 years ago, we would have enjoyed this. Well except for the roaches. The lights we had turned off and I was about to plug in my tablet to get charged. So I turned on the light by the wet bar and saw a roach. I cringed and decided I didn't need my tablet that bad for the plane.
The curtains were not thick enough to keep light out. I was worried our stuff might get stolen when we left for awhile. When we got back around 8 PM we couldn't pull into the parking lot due to glass all over the pavement. Apparently a man had broken a car window and LAPD took care of that but the hotel apparently didn't care enough to clean up the mess. So we found another parking entrance and you have to call to get in. They didn't bother answering the line but after 5 minutes the door opened for the vehicle in front of us and the shuttle behind us, who apparently doesn't know to use headlights in the dark. We backed into our spot and almost hit the shuttle because we couldn't see him. In the morning I did as told and went to the front desk a half hour before we needed the shuttle. They almost left without us. We left stuff in the room because we had to get our stuff together in 10 minutes instead of a half hour.
A very shady atmosphere. In the morning I turned on that light once again and found another roach. I screamed and my husband killed it. I quickly removed my toothbrush and other toiletries, making sure none had crawled into my makeup bag. It took so long for hot water that I didn't bother showering and just washed my face so we could get out of there quickly. Checkout at noon? Seriously? I barely got any sleep. I can handle planes flying over. That is to be expected. I had the creepy crawlies thinking there were more bugs. All the noise all night long of people skateboarding and shouting.
it's unfortunate someone else made our reservation, because I can spend hours researching a hotel and checking reviews. After the first roach I wanted to leave. The prostitutes at the bar..well I can handle that. I am surprised this place is still in business. They don't mention the hookah bar on the website. Maybe that is why they allow all the pot smoking? I could have gotten high just walking through the pool and bar areas.
We had to leave early for a flight, so no breakfast for us. Not sure why that doesn't start till 7 AM anyway.
It's too bad that so many people who travel are being taken advantage of here. Don't stay unless you are desperate!
WIFI try it. Maybe it will work for you but not us.
