“good for the price - you could do a lot worse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2008

The road the hotel is situated on not too pretty but the motel is fine, the rooms are clean, of a satisfactory size and the staff are helpful and the chambermaid does a excellent job on keeping the rooms clean.

for those without a car, there are a couple of bus services nearby which can take you downtown (and subway to hollywood boulevard)or out to santa monica and beaches and a good selection of restaurants are not too far away.

the area is near echo park which is a very safe area.

the road outside is a bit noisy but there the room does have double glazing.

free coffee, tea OJ and danish up to 10:30. Office has penty of leaflets for organised trips and maps etc.

no frills, but overall a well run motel

I stayed at this Americas Best Value inn for 3 nights. It lies on Sunset Boulevard, which can be a very busy road. The hotel was very noisy due to the noise from the street, I couldn't sleep very well. But besides that the hotel is decent. The rooms are not very large, but they are clean. The bathroom was very clean as well. The television worked fine.

Everyday, two new free bottles of water were put on my desk by the cleaning ladies, which was a nice welcome present for hot LA. However do bring your own shampoo, it is not provided by the hotel as I expected. The cleaners don't speak English, but the people behind the desk do and are very friendly.

There is no internet in this hotel, but they when you ask they will refer you to the nearby Motel 8 hotel, where you can use internet at $1 per 10 minutes, which I found pretty expensive. However if you have a laptop with you, you might want to try and find a wireless network.

In the morning you can take a free breakfast, which consists of not too good coffee and a biscuit. This is nice to overcome the time to go out and find a good breakfast place in the neighbourhood (which I never really found). There is a restaurant next to the hotel, it is maybe even part of the hotel, that wasn't very clear. However, I entered this place once, and never went back, it didn't look very clean.

There is a bus stop nearby the hotel and this was very convenient, bus n2 runs to beverly hills. Hollywood and the walk of fame are only 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. The metro station Hollywood/western is 5 minutes walking from the hotel.

The neighbourhood didn't look very safe at first sight, it is a more poverish part of sunset boulevard. I was travelling alone and I am a 26y woman, but I never had any problems and never felt unsafe, but I never came back to my hotel later than 9pm, so I can't really tell how it would be later in the evening.

I traveled to LA for a business trip in June. I stayed at this Americas Best Value Inn for 4 nights. The room was clean and the staff was courteous. There were no frills - no tub, only a shower; had to get the TV remote from the front desk; there was no High Speed Internet Access.

The parking lot was well lit and I felt safe at this hotel. The management was very helpful - recommending restaurants, driving tours, etc.

I recommend this hotel for a value minded traveler. I would stay there again.
