“Roaches would have higher standards than to infiltrate this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2007

We stayed one night at this "hotel" because we were boarding a cruise the next morning. A) This place is in a seedy part of town. B) The hotels reservation system consists of lost emails and mis-placed phone calls between the owner and staff. C) The decor consists of stickly floors and dust both in the hallways/common areas and the suites. D) The towels are not much thicker then napkins. E) The shower is part of the main room area, not a seperate room to itself, it's a closet with a curtain. F) The toilet CLOSET is so small that even a anorexic midget would have to back in and rotate 45 degrees to close the door. I honestly think roaches would have higher standards than to infiltrate this place. If you need a place to pass out, this might be it. If you care at all about staying in something even remotely close to clean.... this isn't going to be your cup of tea.

Park with view area walking distance good for bicycling, skateboarding, meditating, sunning, skating. The Ext, is 1800's simple, the lobby looks 1800 and simple, (Friday, Sat, Sunday) Continental Breakfast, but remember the prices are fantastic so you have money for breakfast at Trumps. The history is vast, this hotel was establish predating the oil rush in los angeles and water surrounded this very hotel, so that when you enter it's different to find that you would be standing years ago in water, they have photos to prove it...
