“The only place I got bug bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

in general this place is ok as the price is quite reasonable based on the location. however this is the first time I travelled to LA and I immediately got bug bite in this motel. the bed sheet wasn't very clean and the closet feels smelly as well. unforturenately we left all clothes we bought in outlet in the closet and we found bugs when we tried on them back home. we spent whole weekend and try all we can to kill the bugs.

we wrote the Intercontinental group to raise this issue but the hotel insist their rooms are very clean after a "bug inspection" by outside company.

anyway, just a friendly remind to those who are going to stay in this place, be careful!

Dear Eric Yijia L,

We certainly appreciate you taking the time to bring this matter to our attention. Guest comfort and safety are of the utmost concern to us and our hotels are committed to making every possible effort to provide a secure environment. The hotel took your comments seriously and immediately contacted their pest control company to come and inspect the room. The results of the inspection showed no evidence of any insects.

Once again, I really appreciate you sharing your comments.

Sincerely,

Jaime W

This is a newly remodeled hotel, which makes it look brand new on the inside. The furniture is modern and comfortable. Located a few blocks west of Downtown Los Angeles, and about a 5 minute drive to LA Live (Stables Center). On the other hand, the location is not so great, but if you don't mind taking a cab or driving this is a decent hotel.

We stayed 1 night in this hotel and it was clean and the bed was comfortable. We arrived early morning and couldn't check in yet. The front desk staff left us go ahead and park the car so we spent the day in the fashion district. The ladies at the front desk were extremely accomodating and very friendly! The hotel was an excellent place to stay. The part of town it is in is not the best, but I would stay here again because it was a great place to shower and sleep. The breakfast was good and hot with a lot of different food options.
Great price, free parking, clean, comfortable, complimentary breakfast, A+ in my opinion.

We were in town for Opening Day at Dodger stadium and, since the tickets were on the pricier side, we did not want to break the bank on a hotel, too. The low rates, paired with free parking and complimentary breakfast in the morning made this Holiday Inn Express a great value.

The rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. We felt very safe on the hotel grounds and in the parking area. We felt comfortable enough to walk through the surrounding neighborhood during the daytime--Langer's Deli (a must!) and MacArthur Park are very close--but I would not recommend doing the same after dark.

If you need to get a passport quick, or other business at the Federal building, this hotel is a good fit. Good breakfast.

Rooms were clean, everything worked, inside the hotel I was safe and comfortable, but I would not venture outside after dark. Staff very friendly, will stay here again when I'm the area for business.

The Holiday Inn Express is about your only choice in that part of town. We were attending a late afternoon memorial service at a nearby church and didn't want to drive far. This hotel was remodeled and modernized a couple of years ago. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. The bathrooms are a bit small and lacking in counter space, but they have done well with what they had to work with. There is free Wi-Fi and also free use of computers and a printer in their business center. We had asked for early check-in when we made the reservation. They wouldn't make any guarantees, but they had a room ready for us when we arrived. They offer a free hot breakfast, even including sausage and eggs, but there is no restaurant at the hotel and there are none nearby. Being in an ethnic neighborhood, there are many choices for tacos and enchiladas, and there's a Jack In The Box across the street. The hotel has secure off-street parking. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay there.
