This was the absolute WORST motel we have ever stayed in! Booked three nights in this place and did not realize that it seems to have a very serious problem with bed bugs, until a day or two later. We are now back home in Australia and may have brought the problem with our luggage, or at the very least... More

While on holiday we had to find somewhere to stay fairly last minute as our plans suddenly changed. We needed somewhere cheap and central with wifi (kids!!) and free parking. This place offered both so we went for it. It's a cheap motel in not the most desirable location but for our needs it was perfect. The rooms are spacious... More

I was gonna write a long review but the picture of the bathroom is all you need. Putrid bathrooms. Room infested with flies. The owner didn't want to give us a refund, but we mentioned calling the health department and he immediately refunded $35 of the $70 paid. Do yourself a favor and keep searching. I am writing this literally... More

Actually located in quite good location in south LA, if you have a car. Quiet motel but not so clean. Room wasn't made everyday and they should change sheets. For price I paid I expected at least room was cleaner.

In the middle of south LA getto. If you are a tourist, you should treat it as a attraction. Clean but noisy. Good free parking. I liked it but do not expect to much. Close to downtown and airport. Car is a must.

Clean and comfortable. TV and Air Conditioning was working perfectly. No luxuries but I didn't expect it. Very good for a motel. Neighbourhood a little dirty and smelly. And I was the only white guy in the area :) But I felt save for the whole stay. The police station is close.

I fly into LAX and did a search of hotels near LAX. Their ambitious right up said 4 miles. .. anyway I booked it. Turns out it is an hour away from LAX. I fly out of the same airport early. I called Priceline to cancel reservation that I just made 10 minutes earlier. Priceline called the hotel and told... More

I would not recommend this motel for anyone. The pictures don't do any justice for the quality of our stay. PROS: - conveniently located a 5 minute drive to the Los Angeles Memorial Center - Free available parking - Comfortable clean bed and sheets CONS: -WiFi barely works and doesn't stay connected. I just ended up not using it all... More

Not gonna lie here. This place was clean and comfortable but the area was really ghetto. I was very scared of staying here for the night. Did not know the area was like this because we are not from LA. There were warning signs everywhere like, no prostitution, no selling drugs etc. People working there was very nice. And the... More

Pros: Everything was remodeled and friendly staff. This motel was much better than we expected. Me and my brother made a spontaneous trip to LA and had to find a motel for cheap. We were expecting a crummy room and bad customer service but it was the opposite. Cons: Far from the city and beaches. About 30min drive to Manhattan... More
