“Refurbished motel close to downtown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

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.

Some friends and I booked this hotel for a music festival this past weekend. We were skeptical because of the previous reviews, but we were also on a tight budget. When we entered the room, we were actually shocked at how clean it was! We came to find out that the hotel recently received a new owner who is putting a lot of work into the hotel to make up for the previous owner's treatment of it. All of the workers, especially the owner, were friendly and welcoming! We were definitely happy with our stay.

Katie,

Thank you for the review! We actually get a lot of guests attending music festivals. Hope to have you at the property again one day and it will be even better because we are continuously remodeling.

the hotel isn't a lot to look at but it is right by downtown, just a short walk away from downtown actually. The area that it is in is rather shabby and a bit rundown but the room was nice and clean and the front desk was helpful. the free breakfast wasn't fancy, but it was decent and we did not walk away hungry. The price is decent but the area is really not the best. we didn't go out after it got dark.

So, we were suckered in by Hotwire which booked the room and then we couldnt cancel. Checking in was OK. Parking lot seemed a bit shady, but we didn't get mugged and car was not broken into so thats a bonus. Check in was OK, staff was nice. There was a huge iron burn mark on the floor. Upon inspection of the bedding, there was a huge obvious brownish reddish streaks all over the sheets. We are pretty chill, but that was a bit much for us. If you have a choice in the matter, dont stay here. There is an awesome Mexican bakery across the street which is worth noting.

This property has recently gotten a new owner and management and dirty sheets are unacceptable. I will personally look into the matter and I would like to apologize on behalf of the staff

I booked this hotel through priceline and when I arrived I didn't feel safe. BAD area, there were bars around the building had to be buzzed in. The front desk was rude, the internet was down no air conditioning, smelly and dirty. They couldn't give me the requested beds. I left saying I wasn't staying there. She reassured me I wouldn't be charged, but sure enough I was charged and never seen any of the money. I felt right ripped off! Save your money time and frustration and avoid this dump. It really should be shut down!

Room Tip: Don't stay in any rooms at this place!
