Reviewed November 6, 2012

We got a king room here for 3 nights and found it perfect place to explore LA from. We hired a car and the parking was handy and cheap. Rooms are decent enough and the burger joint next door is open late and really handy. Perfect for an exploring couple or a group going to concert/event. Lookl elsewhere if you want to spend lots of time in your room as the place is dated and pool nothing special

I love this place. It's not fancy and it's lacking in some amenities, but for location and price and the touch of nostalgia, it's worth it. We stay here every time we travel to LA. Swingers, the 24hr retro cafe/diner is just downstairs. Farmer's Market and the Grove are in walking distance. 3rd Street is also a healthy stroll away where you can find a wide variety of restaurants and cafes. Joan's on Third and Little Next Door are recommended. King's Road Cafe is also just down Beverly.

Centrally located, the BLM is somewhat equidistant to most LA locations: downtown, Venice, Santa Monica, Pasadena. Yes, you have to drive to these locations. It's Los Angeles.

As for the Hotel, I guess there are certain things to which I've grown accustomed. Earplugs are often needed as the neighbors and diner can be noisy in the morning. We always stay on the 3rd floor toward the back. Avoid street side or you'll get lots of road noise. Shower needs a bit of love to get hot water, but it's there. Wifi and TV are available as are a fridge and micro, but I always bop down to Swingers and pick up coffee (get the red eye if you like it strong) and bagel.

Room Tip: stay on the upper level, away from the road. It's quiter. But bring earplugs just in case of e...

Basically I choose this hotel because it was very close to where I was visiting. Would I go there again, yes. There are some comments I need to make. First parking is not free like it stated somewhere else, but it was only $5.00 per day which wasn't bad. The property is dated but clean and I had no problem with the bed, it was just right. Bathroom fixtures could use updating and the built in drawers were funky. The service was friendly, prompt and courteous. Price worked for me. There are lots of places to eat nearby with Swingers, a funky SoCal dinner attached. The food was good if not different.

I liked the hotel a lot. It's convenient , friendly and not terribly expensive . I'll stay there again . My friends needed to go up to San francisco so Manuel ( the receptionist ) helped them book bus tickets . That was nice.
Another plus is Swingers , a little restaurant right out front , is such a wonderful place . I had my French toast there every morning .

Stayed here for three nights and had no complaints. Great location, very near to the Farmers Market. Room was clean, pool good size, and easy parking (costs an additional $7 a day). Good price for LA and we felt we were staying somewhere with real character. LOVED Swingers Diner next door - see separate review.

Location is great for short trips to LA when one wants to sightsee as is very central and walking distance to farmers market and grove. Property and rooms are kept very clean but building itself needs updating. Rooms and bathrooms are just plain old and rundown a bit. For price and location they should invest some money and update the hotel but suppose wouldnt be priced the same. Pool was nice and lucky they had some open parking as our roofbox wouldnt fit the underground.
