I stayed here during a 2 day stop over in LA. Wouldn't say I had a bad stay, but for the price I was paying I was expecting better. The rooms were very nice and clean and the bed extremely comfortable, but many appliances not working. Wifi wouldn't work so I called the front desk and they made ME call the internet help line myself and when checked out staff tried to charge me for the call. The temperature control on shower did not work so I couldn't shower as the water was nothing but scalding hot. TV did not work, the cable would work for a minute, then either switch off or mute itself. I gave up on bothering with it given I was only there for 2 days.
Room size is decent, not huge, but was more than enough room for a solo traveller. View wasn't very nice, just of a 'Smog Check' sign, some light poles and the road.
Don't stay here if you don't like noise, as this place is on a really busy road and there is constant traffic noise day and night. They supplied tea bags but nothing to boil water with, which seemed kind of pointless. Rooms did have a microwave which I used to heat up water in cups. Rooms also have a bar fridge which came in handy. There is a supermarket across the road which was great for dinner on the first night.
Complimentary breakfast each morning was very nice, they had a broad selection of foods. Would have liked to have seen some more healthier options, but not a major issue.
Location wise, it isn't close to anything. Unless you are familiar with the bus service in the area, you have to taxi everywhere which can be quite expensive. However, I would stay here again if it wasn't as expensive or if I had a room that didn't have as many faults. Otherwise, I would look elsewhere.
