“horrible, scary, uncomfortable, noisy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2006

This place was AWFUL. The sheets were starched and bleached to within an inch of their lives and the towels were small, threadbare and equally rough. There were no blankets in the room, only a thin cheap, polyester bedspread and sheet. The extra safety lock was missing from the door, so you could not lock the room from the inside such that you were sure that no one would enter. What else? It was light in the room in the middle of the night because of the super bright parking lot and inadequate window coverings. Noisy as hell, all night long. Avoid this place like the plague, we got barely any sleep at all. We had to pretty much block out the fact that we felt unsafe, uncomfortable and try to sleep through the noise. AWFUL. Go somewhere else, pay the extra money. You can't sleep at this place.

Coming from France, we had been there in 1996 and had good memories of the rooms and the small pool (conveniently out of Ventura Bd). So we went back in 2005 and boom, it was "Back to the Past". Same carpeting, same A/C and a dilapidated feeling about the whole experience. So we just stayed 2 nights and decided to switch to the nearby Comfort Inn East on Ventura Bd. If Aku Aku was bad, the Comfort Inn was worst. So out of idea we went back to the Aku Aku and oh surprise they proposed us their brand new rooms for a small increase of price. And really, for 80 USD you can't complain : new furnitures, new A/C, large clean rooms, everything fine. Definitely not palace but a real good deal for L.A.

Next thing to do : renovate the pool and change the deckchairs !
