The girl who checked us in told us their credit card machine was not working, but there was no credit card machine to be seen in the office at all. Upon reading other reviews I don’t think they even accept credit cards – something that would be handy to know, as a person who only uses credit and carries very little cash.
Location – Great Location. Very close to Melrose shopping and a short walk to The Grove.
They have a free shuttle that picks up at LAX at set times, only problem is the van does not have much luggage space at all so if there are a few people it can be quite cramped. Other shuttles are very reasonably priced.
Room – Our room was clean, and reasonably maintained. We booked a private room, our room was large with a balcony and as well as our double bed also had a set of bunks in the room as well. Or door to the balcony did not lock, there was a piece of wood to place in the track of the door to stop it from being opened, and the screen kept falling off.
Breakfast – Very cheap and reasonably quality breakfast is sold in the kitchen every morning Some food is free others are 2$. Avoid the hash browns, they are very soggy, I believe they are just heated up in the microwave.
Luggage room is not very secure, it locks, but they don’t check if the bags you are taking are actually yours, you just put the bags in a room with a lot of other people’s bags and hope no one takes your bag when they take theirs.
The lift does not work, so you will have to carry your luggage upstairs.
We would definitely stay here again.
