For a 2-star motel, this place exceeded my expectations. The location was very convenient - it was right off the highway and still 20-min to 30-min from downtown LA & the nearby attractions. The owners/management was also very friendly and helpful.
The room was tired-looking, but the beds were comfortable and most importantly, clean! The free breakfast was much better than the continental breakfast you would find at a typical Super 8 (besides the standard toasts/juice/coffee/bananas, it also included Danish pastries, yoghurt and fresh waffles!). However, the breakfast room was too small with 4 tables, so be warned if there's a wait!
Wifi was free but you'd need to get a printed code with username & password from the reception and only 1 machine could be connected to the internet, which was annoying as they should just use the password-protected Wifi so that more people could login at the same time.
There was also a coined-operated laundry room ($2 for wash) which was great. And of course, free parking. You could hear the road noise (seems like lots of emergency sirens during our stay!) and you could hear the train passing by as well at night. So, pack a pair of ear plugs for sure.
For the price of $45/night for 2 persons in a room, this might be the best hidden deal in the LA area (super value)!!
