This is a basic motel. It's old but has had some updated furniture and rugs over the years. There is a pool that is fine. The rooms are quite large with a separate area for the tub/shower and potty wtih a door and they a sink outside so two people can use the facilities at a time. The air conditioner is old and noisy but works fine. Free internet connections. The towels are thin and the soap is basic hotel. There is good parking and they don't charge for it which is unusual in LA. They have a basic free breakfast but I would skip it. There is a Denny's type diner next door which will give you a 10% discount if you show them your room key. It's food quality is on a par for Denny's It's fine for breakfast but I would skip it otherwise.
Location is the reason you stay here. It's about a 10 min walk to the USC campus and maybe 25 min to the Coliseum for football games. So you don't have to worry about finding a place to park and all the hassle that goes with it.
The rooms out by the Figueroa do have some road noise. The rooms in the back are usually quieter unless some of the students in the apartment house behind the motel are having a party after a game, like they were last week.
I give it 3 stars due to its location. Otherwise, it's a 2 or 1.5.
