This was my first time here so I can't say what it used to be like but now it's a perfectly good, basic motel within easy walking distance of downtown (including Chinatown, little Tokyo, the Fashion District etc) There are also bus stops outside.
My room had been recently refurbished and everything was clean and good quality. There's a coffee machine and fridge and there's a microwave in the breakfast room which you can use.
Breakfast is cereal, toast, waffles and fresh fruit and it's adequate to get you started.
The area around the hotel isn't beautiful but it's not at all dangerous (and apparently Echo Park is one of the up and coming parts of Los Angeles)
Next to the motel is a bar/restaurant called The Park's Finest which serves a good range of beers and barbecue type meats - the portions are huge!
Across the road there's a bakery which is pretty good (I had a very nice banana muffin for just $1). There's also a greengrocer next to this if you want some fresh fruit.
