    We were not happy with this hotel in any way. We were 3 girls in our 20´s doing a road trip in California, and because of that needed cheap places to stay. We did not read the reviews before we booked, something we really regretted....More

    Our room was pretty small and bare but clean. Front desk people were nice. We were going to a show at Great American Music Hall around the corner, so the location was perfect. We felt safe despite the location.

    Have you had any cyber or VR stalking or identity theft issues since your stay at the civic center inn? If so, please let me know, I smell a camera and audio rat.. I have been cyber stalked, had my phone data taken by malware or Bluetooth jacking no less than 5 times (it is so bad that I do not even own a phone anymore, they have entered my residence, lied to the authorities about me and my neighbors and I have a pretty decent idea it has something to do with Community Gang Stalking; Google it...its all there in big loud words what is happening. And if so, feel free to give your feedback on their blog which is attached to the page. I understand there are already laws in place in a lot of Europe for this very thing, but nothing here in the states except a few states that have existing legislation or are contemplating it..I appreciate your help in this matter as i just spent the last 5 days in jail because of some things they were compelled to fabricate and tell the authorities. This 5 days also included a very brutal beating from the guards in jail. They also had me evicted from my residence by stealing my pin and accounts numbers from my residence and wiring out just enough money so I could not pay my rent ... so that is where the winning on their part should end..Thanks again and any input would be valuable .
