The room smells, the location is not optimal, no restos in the neighborhood, and the hotel overall is very shabby!
The price is too high for the value you get.

The motel is in a rather dodgy part of town with people who look like they're gonna mug you walking around the carpark (WHICH IS OPEN AND REALLY DARK). The reception area was tiny, probably the size of my bathroom, and had a funny smell to it..

At first, we had gotten a room on the lower floor, next to the pool. The room was noisy, dark, small and smelt of chlorine and mildew. We demanded a room change and were given a room towards the back on level 2. This room was in the middle of renovation with paint patches and holes around the room. There were wood panels missing.. The room had a kitchen which was decent, but looked like it was in the mists of renovation too. The bathroom was nice and clean, but the door looked unstable and worn. The air-con vent which was situated right next to the bed had a pannel missing allowing us to look right into the core of the vent. The vent itself had polystyrene glued inside which was blackened (possibly due to the dust) which I personally felt like they were insect eggs rather than sections of the air-con vent!

We felt so unsafe at night (we saw people who looked like suspicious checking in and lingering around the motel area) that one person in my party tried to barricade the door with a chair at night!

We were suppose to stay for 6 nights, but checked out after the first spending less than 12 hours in the hotel room. It was the WORST accommodation of our entire trip and just felt terrible.

There are better quality hotels around which aren't in such shady areas for the same/similar price!

We booked at the downtowner because we were told that it's in walking distance from the walk of fame and the chinese theatre. The only problem is that the neighbourhood is so sketchy that I WOULD NEVER take the 10 minute walk to reach the tourist attractions. The lobby is locked from the inside but the rooms that have all access on the courtyard are separated from the street by a tiny gate that can be opened at anytime by anybody. The breakfast is pretty good (as far as selection goes) but it is prepared in a separate building.
The rooms smell disgusting and the walls are paper-thin. The whole structure of the hotel is made of wood and when someone in the room above yours walks it feels like they are walking right next to you. When we stayed at the hotel we were assigned a room next to a huge group of dancers that were up and partying all night.
The parking is free but we were fearing for our car. There is no gate, no separation from the street. It's just a small parking lot behind a run down motel in a sketchy neighbour hood in the ghettoish part of hollywood.
I won't even start commenting the rooms cause I can't honestly think of anything good. Just trust me, spend those 40 extra dollars and be safe somewhere else.
Also, the beds were not confortable, at all, and I suspect bed bugs. We ran away after 1 night and we were supposed to stay 3.
There was a dead roach in the pool.

Room Tip: I highly doubt there are good rooms.

Budget accommodation but the beds are clean. The decor is a bit tired and the carpets need replacing but its a bed for the night. We stayed at the rear of the building so it wasn't noisy but the A/C was. Breakfast was OK great if you're a veggie no meat ,if you got there later the tables were dirty cause no one seemed to clean they were only there to provide food.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back noisy at the front.
