I stayed at this Inn for 2 weeks with my 9yr old son and my mother. The staff are very friendly and very helpful, especially Anna. Since my son has food allergies we requested a refrigerator to be able to keep special items for him. They set one in the room at no extra cost! They also set a table where my son could do his home school work.
We had a spacious double bed room which was very clean. The room ceiling is high and gives you the sensation of an even bigger room. The towels are very small but they change them everyday. In fact I would like to use those small towels at home now because they are more earth friendly. A little change like this, if we all do it, could help save our natural resources and pollute less. The bedspreads and curtains are rather ugly (made of 100% polyester) but this is only a matter of subjective taste and does not affect the overall positive experience.
I do not like donuts that much for breakfast and certainly not everyday for a 15 day stay. I do not drink coffee and the "juice" they have has very little juice in it. But, with a fridge in the room I could have whatever I like. I much prefer if they keep the room prices low, rather than making the prices higher and provide a better breakfast.
The room has an AC which was very handy during the hot days. Outside the rooms there is a very pleasant lanai, where you could seat and have a sense of privacy, because of the magnificent plants they have. In fact this little hotel is very charming due to the vegetation. Without it, it would be like any other motel. It is like staying in a Hacienda in the middle of the city. I am certainly planning to return to LA and I will definitely want to stay there again. I highly recommend it!
