“Great motel for a cheap price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Pros:
Everything was remodeled and friendly staff. This motel was much better than we expected. Me and my brother made a spontaneous trip to LA and had to find a motel for cheap. We were expecting a crummy room and bad customer service but it was the opposite.

Cons:
Far from the city and beaches. About 30min drive to Manhattan Beach and LAX Airport. AC was a bit loud. Also in a ghetto area. But the parking lot had cameras and bright lights so it felt safe.

Overall summary:
Great motel for a nice price. We booked four nights same day for $60 a night. Thursday-Monday. Everything remodeled inside; hardwood floors, bathroom, and a brand new lcd tv that still had plastic on it. Me and my brother enjoyed watching FIFA. We were expecting a crummy room and bad customer service but it was the opposite. There was housekeeping, pretty large mini-fridge, and free wifi which was really fast about the same speeds im getting with comcast. Not the best area in town and about a 30min drive to any tourist hotspot but well worth it for a cheap price.

To be honestly I wouldn't give any rank to this motel at all. If you don't want to get lots of red and ugly bites of bedbugs DON'T go to this motel. We had many bites on all of our body and they are still red and visible after 10days. We have told this at the office but they didn't care however we were not the only ones who had such a horrible experience in the past from this place. I totally can't recommend this place to stay.

The factor that makes this motel so unsatisfactory is that its in a dangerous location. I was scared to walk around at night and had to be cautious at any time of the day. The bathtub leaked some kind of brown fluid. The TV only had a few channels which were mostly static-y. The room appeared clean. There was free wifi, which i greatly appreciated. Also, the lady at the check-in station who might have ran the hotel was very nice, polite, and understanding. She reassured me that even thought the neighborhood was questionable, the motel was safe.

I would never stay there again. If I was a single I would never stay here. Staff is nice, but warning signs and cameras are all over the building.The room was clean and the bed was ok. The TV was fuzzy the whole time we were there.There is free internet and free parking which was good. Neighborhood is scary! No latch locks on the doors. Cheap rooms, but not enough reason for me to stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not go to this motel if you are a single lady.

The room was extremely clean and smelled nice. They need to upgrade their television and add a few carpets to make it more homey. Overall I enjoyed my one night stay here and would stay here again if I come back to Los Angeles.
