the place is somewhat between a hotel and a B&B. First and foremost, it is quite a bargain in this area. My rate was around USD70/double room/night, including a simple self-service continental breakfast with bagel, juice, coffee, fruits.
The receptionist was quite nice and courteous and I saw her giving guests directions with google map print out. The place looked like a cozy joint and there was a little style in its decor. The room was on the small side, but still with usable space. Bathroom was functional with toiletries. Overall, it was a tidy and comfortable place to bunker down.
There were supermarkets and stores across the road for you to stock up, which is a notch up. It was particularly convenient to go to universal studio as it was just 2 metro stops away. Metro station was 5 minutes' walk away. I was not sure whether they offer free parking because I did not see any parking slots within the premises. if you do not want the hassle, you could definitely go around by bus, with some planning. But you may probably need to change at some point if you target santa monica or elsewhere.
