We found this hotel via Bookit.com and since we were on a budget and not expecting to spend the night in L.A. we went ahead and booked it.
The hotel might be in downtown L.A. but its surrounding neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired. Once we went in around 6pm, we did not come back out and ordered food in because we were scared to go out.
The parking is $12 for the night, but at least you can come in and out so that is a plus if you are going to be hanging out in Downtown L.A.
We had children traveling with us, so when our neighbors started to make loud partying noises and smoke what smelled like weed in the room next door we were very upset.
We had to try and drown their noise by turning the T.V. on so that our kids wouldn't wake up and hear the inappropriate conversations going on.
Then, around 2 or 3 am we heard noises again, but this time it was coming from both neighboring rooms, so these people seemed to have just returned from clubbing or something.
Aside from that, which was the worst sleep I gotten in years of traveling and staying a various hotels, what can I say?
Well, the carpet in the room was dirty. The whole room felt dingy and musty. It was very small and the pillows sucked! They were super mushy and didn't hold their shape at all.
The bathroom was outdated and cramped up.
Hotel is in need of a reno and the rooms reflects it.
The only pretty thing is the lobby. We didn't eat breakfast there because of course it was not free.
For families traveling, I would not recommend this hotel.
