“a little gem!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

What a great motel, with friendly, helpful staff. As we didn't have a laptop the staff were more than happy to google information for us. A lovely gift bag of 'goodies' on arrival.A 'corner store' for extra supplies was just few doors away. A wee walk to downtown, Staples Centre, but doable. Was safe to walk home after 10pm. Buses handy. Bit of noise from the unit above us, but ok. We arrived earlier than check-in but were able to leave our bags safely.

Clean rooms. Free wifi and very convenient parking just outside the rooms. Friendly service on arrival. No hazzle and easy access to LA. A little noise from traffic, ventilation and surroundings. But if you are looking for that good motel feeling, this is it.

We stayed over Christmas 2012. Firstly, the location - it is located in downtown LA. We had no issues with safety and felt catching public transport from/to the area to be decent. As LA is so big and hard to get around, anywhere you stay is going to be difficult if you don't have a car. We managed to work out the bus system and found that bus 16 took us either to the downtown metro stations or towards north Hollywood. The stop is located just across the road from the motel. On arrival to LA it was a bit of a trek using public transport, I suggest you save the hassle and just get a cab for $60. Also, get the weekly "tap" card for public transport. It can be used on buses or trains.
Motel room- on arrival we were given a bag containing some food items & water. This was really thoughtful. The check in process was quick and smooth and the girl who served us was helpful and nice. Room was adequate for what we wanted. Great for travellers on a budget who don't plan to spend much time in their room. Lots of tv channels, good heating, wifi & friendly service,
Would recommend.

Room Tip: Top floor if you don't mind carrying your bag up the stairs.

I stayed here for 4 nights in mid December 2012. I would have to say, that the reviews and the ratings live up to expectations. Considering the low price per night for this place, the room was quite spacious, even with a small walk in for your luggage, and the bathrooms were a decent size. The bed was very comfortable and had probably the best pillows I've ever slept on.

There is parking on the motel property, although if the hotel is at full capacity you may struggle to find a spot and may have to take the disabled spot.

Wifi worked well most of the time but I felt it was a bit slow at 'peak' times when there may have been a lot of users.

The only thing I might have a whinge about is that the shower was very dark at night, hard to explain, but basically the light from the bathroom doesn't really get in because of the way the shower is set up. It was ok in the morning though.

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a place to stay that is inexpensive but provides all the basic necessities without feeling cheap, tacky, or dirty.
