“Not bad for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2005

I arrived at the hotel expecting the worst, but was surprised to see a clean lobby with couches & tv. The hotel staff was very friendly, immediately giving me maps of the area.

Room was very big with a desk area - bathroom & room clean. It could use some new carpeting & furniture as the room had a slight "old" odor to it.

The best part is there's a Denny's right across the street & a Metro subway station a few doors down.

All in all it's great for the money & not too far away from the tourist area. I would stay here again if I was on a budget, but if money is not an issue I'd rather stay at the bigger hotels where you're in walking distance to lots of stores.

A Decent place. Clean for the most part. I didnt think the location was that bad. It was easy to find off the freeway.

All I can really say is the hotel had that"junky" feel to it. A little noisy, and it had a few rough edges, but altogether a decent place to stay.

I stayed at this hotel for a week while attending a conference - for the money I really can't complain and indeed liked the place. While the bath tub was a bit small for me, the staff were friendly and the lobby was very nice, as were the rooms (if a bit basic and lacking wireless internet access).

The hotel is slap bang next to a subway station (great for tourists, $3 to Universal Studios - beats the cab fare) and 5 minutes walk away from some shops. Top stuff.

We stayed here overnight after arriving on an evening flight and continuing on early the next morning. We had no illusions about grandeur or neighborhood. This hotel was just fine for our purposes. The price was right, and the free parking was a nice perk. Yes, the room was quite dated, but it was mostly clean. The old light switches should be replaced; they have years worth of grime imbedded in them. The continental breakfast was the usual fare, with an unusual addition of real doughnuts (not the supermarket kind). The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Under the same circumstances we would consider staying here again.

Location wasnt great. Even our taxi driver suggested we move elsewhere as the neighbourhood was rough. Hotel was very basic. On the plus side there was free parking, free breakfast and very helpful staff. (Peter - you are the sweetest!). If I was to stay in LA again I would get a hotel near the beach - or Bevery Hills if I could afford it!

Booked this through Expedia.

Comments on this hotel are mainly right - the rooms need redecorated, carpets renewed etc. Rooms are a good size.

It is in an excellent position to see Hollywood and LA. Has free covered parking.

Breakfast was good but don't leave it too late otherwise all the pastries will be gone.

Staff ok but not overly helpful.

Wouldn't stay here again, would try and find something a bit more cleaner and more modern.

The place was not bad for the money. They had free covered parking. The room I had was on the third floor with a vaulted ceiling and a separate couch area. It was clean and the staff was pleasant. The room could of used some minor repairs, like pealing wallpaper in the bathroom and a bent lampshade. But it was good location and served it purpose.
