This property is newly remodeled and because of that, it's new, clean and very well decorated. The outside of the property is freshly painted in Holiday Inn colors and almost looks out of place considering the neighborhood and other buildings around it. It is in a very dirty part of town, let's just say that, with many people on the streets, walking, selling, hanging out, talking . . . we were concerned about the safety of our vehicle, but everything was fine. I wish there was a secured lot with a gate or something, but that's not the case here. Parking is free which is nice!
The room is clean and everything worked fine. We all got a good night's sleep, which was our goal, once the sirens stopped at about 11 PM. We were at Dodger Stadium (which is a 10 min drive) until 9:30 PM, but heard 3 or 4 sirens go by in that hour and a half that we were in our room before going to sleep. Do not expect to swim here, the pool is VERY SMALL -- we thought it was the hot tub!! No more than 5 people will fit comfortably and don't even think about doing any playing or swimming, it's just enough to wet your feet.
Breakfast was fine, no major complaints. Aside from hard, cold hard-boiled eggs, but perhaps that's me being picky. There were eggs, sausage patties, yogurt, fresh bananas and oranges, and several toast, muffin and bagel offerings. Typical Holiday Inn type of breakfast.
It's the nicest option in the area -- if you need / want to stay in the area. Just know, you won't be walking to and from dinner, the store, etc.
