“Wonderful location”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

This hotel was a pleasure to stay in, great hot complementary breakfast, large room, clean and the best thing was the location close to the Metro and Buses to Santa Monica etc. Quiet and safe location, nice garden area to sit in with a lovely fountain.

Room Tip: Book direct through the Hotel, not via an agent or expedia etc.

Okay, truth be told, when I first arrived I considered finding another hotel. The location is so-so. Not some place you are going to want to walk around. And the exterior looked kind of tired. But it's not far from Los Feliz, which is very nice and near the Vermont Ave. metro stop which is convenient. I took the metro to Hollywood and Highland and it is safe, fast and well-run. Way better than dealing with the crazy traffic and lack of parking in that area.

This place looks more like a motel than a hotel. I thought the hallways were kind of dark. And I arrived an hour early to check-in time and was told to leave and come back. Really? The bathroom has some cracked tiles and rusted metal parts and you wouldn't want to take a bath in the tub.(It's clean, but has that kind of permanent film thing that can happen over time if it is not scrubbed really well.) First time I showered the tub filled to near the top in five minutes. I reported it and the then the next time if only half filled, so I let it go. There is no closet in the room. There is instead a hanging rack bolted to the wall. None of the furniture matches and the the TV stand doubled as a desk for me. I like that there are no carpets but rather wood (or synthetic wood) floors. Felt cleaner to me. The bed was comfortable. There was a little balcony that overlooked a cute courtyard and the room I had was surprisingly quiet. The balcony connects to the room next door so be sure to keep the glass door locked.Other than the original person I dealt with, the desk staff was nice. I never got around to the free breakfast so I can't comment on that. Parking is gated with an attendant at the exit and costs $24 a day.

This was a last minute trip so I didn't have many hotels to choose from in my price range. I've stayed at much nicer L.A. area hotels for the same price or less. I won't come back to this one, but if you can get a room for a good price it is okay. Clean, safe and basic.

My family of 4 stayed 3 nights. Very nice, quaint & comfortable hotel; going to stay there again for the Labor Day weekend, this time with my sister visiting from Texas. Also liked the mini gift shop with super reasonable prices for those forgotten items.

Not having the hotel in one of the busier parts of LA but still having quick and easy access to the main road ways and local transport (metro a 5 min walk as well as several bus services). The room we stayed in was clean, well furnished and (kind of a negative) a shared balcony onto the inner court. The staff were always helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was great too, with made to order eggs, omelets and waffles plus a selection of other items for breakfast. We ate out every night so couldn't comment on the evening meals.

We stayed here 6 years ago and it's even better now as they now have a good pool. The staff are all very accommodating , fixing up our room later in the day when we were not out early, the rooms are great and the breakfast is fantastic. Any kind of omelette made to order, waffles made to order and a great selection of fresh fruit, cereal, cold meat, cheese, sausage, hash browns, toast , jam etc. just about everything you could think of. All good !!

Hotel was located between 1-5 miles to everywhere we wanted to visit. Metro station’s less than one block away. Breakfast was delicious. Offerings including fresh made omelets, waffles, hash browns, sausage links, assorted bread, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, juices, tea and coffee. Be aware that you are only allowed to have one omelet per day. My boyfriend went to get a second omelet and the chef Hugo yelled at him and told him he could only have one per day. Small gym with weight equipment and treadmills. Pool is nice. Has comfortable lounge chairs and umbrellas for shade. My room overlooked the courtyard on third floor and was very quiet.

Surrounding area is not very nice. Saw a roach the first night. My room was not upgraded as I had seen in some of the recent Trip Advisor pictures. Mold in the bathroom and walls were dirty. The tub was gross. Room had a terrible musky smell that gave me a headache. Elevators are extremely slow. Our fire alarm went off at 5am one morning. Woke us up and the neighbors. Room was very small. No closet. Not allot of room to move around.

Location was awesome. Room not so great.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor overlooking courtyard or back parking lot.
