“Great for on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We booked this hotel after ready reviews on Trip Advisor (for a budget) and we thought it was great!
Reading some other reviews people have commented on it being a bit 'shady' & I won't disagree.. But you certainly don't feel unsafe there!

The staff were extremely friendly & helpful, we had a swim in the pool which was really nice. The room was 'acceptable' it was a little smelly & we could not figure out how to put the air con on.. But that's what you get with budget accommodation!

The location is pretty good, we rented a car (highly recommended if you have the guts to drive on the LA roads!!) so it was easy to get around for us.

All in all, we'd return to the hotel!

Could not wait to get out of this hotel! Staff are friendly, that's the only good thing I can say about this hotel. Felt very vulnerable and afraid during our stay, it seems not only are there hotel guests staying here, but some very dodgy residents! Not the cleanest hotel I've ever been to,quite grubby. There were a few restaurants within walking distance, but my advice is, don't walk anywhere near this hotel. Scary!!!

Need a rental car as it is about 20 minuets from Venice Beach, area is a bit rough but the hotel/motel is surrouned by a wall, small pool but it is a pool. Worth paying for the upgrade, I had a very large room, King bed and it was old but very clean. Friendly staff, parking included.

We stayed at the Sea Rock Inn for one night during a long trip in the US. We basically found what we expected, a decent place to spend one night. Beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom needed a good makeup (the bathtub was obviously quite old) and the room's light system needed stronger bulbs. The price was adequate to the room. Free coffee at any time. I'm not an expert of LA so I cannot really say much about the location, I just can say that from there was easy to reach both the highway and the city centre.

The rooms were actually pretty nice and I have no complaints with the beds.

The only thing that needed work was the bathroom. It needed a good cleaning and even after running the shower for 20 minutes no hot water ever came.

This rating is based on the price. For the price it is a decent option.

After a panic attack of almost having to sleep on the streets for the night with my two other friends, we finally made it to the Sea Rock Inn.

We booked it last minute for Anime Expo 2013, and it was all of ours first AX, and relatively first time in LA (or more so, outside of LA) We were pleasantly surprised at the availability and price of the room. It wasn't too far from the metro silver line bus stop either, which was just a three or four blocks away from the hotel it self. The staff was beyond helpful, a total bro.

After having trouble finding the place due to the others phones being dead, I called the place and the guy on the phone was very helpful. He told us which stop to get off, where to go, and such. He always offered for us to call back in we needed help, and we did just that multiple times. We turned the corner to the road where it was on and to our surprise the front desk guy was standing outside waiting for us so we wouldn't get lost.

The room itself wasnt too bad either. Nice light, nice bathroom, big beds. Came with a fridge as well. The beds were a bit stiff, but it didn't matter to us. Anything was great to sleep on. They were clean as well.

Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a nice cheap stay for a bit.

The room was clean and it was quite comfortable. These are the important things to stay here and book again after two weeks around west Usa. The site is really close to the international airport so it was easy to reach it early in the morning. The value delivered is what we can expect for that price.

Room Tip: Inside 102 it was almost impossible to use the internet wifi connections, the antennas are close to...
