A big plus about this hotel is the free parking. It seems like most hotels in the LA/Orange County area charge for parking, but here, it's included. The room was decent and I got one with a microwave, and a fridge. Free internet is included and it worked pretty well. The staff were super friendly. I had a problem with the flat screen TV, as it froze and none of the controls worked. When I informed the front desk, they sent someone up fairly quickly. He sorted it out by unplugging the TV and plugging it back in again. This hard boot seemed to unfreeze it. It happened 2 more times during my 3 day stay, but I was able to fix it myself the second and third times. I ate 2 breakfasts and one dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food was okay and resonably priced. The waitresses were very pleasent and friendly. The hotel is easy to get to. From the I 405 Freeway, get off at Atlantic Avenue and head south. It's a little way south of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). I see other reviewers commenting on the bad neighborhood. I agree, but if you're driving, it's not a problem. There were some dodgy looking characters hanging around in front of the hotel a couple of nights, but I just drove into the underground car park and took the elevator to my floor. No need to come into contact with these characters, unless you want to. My room was clean and, overall, I was satisfied.
