Bad attitude

The female check in clerk was not cooperative. She wanted to charge more money for an extra person in the room despite being told there were only two. She then called the room at 1am to say there were 3 people in the room. She was angry and rude.

Fine If All You Need to do is Sleep

Pros: Free breakfast, clean
Cons: Nothing close, very rough area
This place is not ritzy or glam by any means, but it is sufficient if you are just looking for a place in LA to sleep at night. If you are coming from another state and picturing "Hollywood" this is not the place to stay. You'll need to spend the extra dough and stay somewhere like the W or The London. Remember, you're being cheap by staying here...don't expect much and you'll be fine. The postives: *The hotel has its own parking lot which is crucial for safety, as well as convienence. Having to park on the street would be very hard. *The room was clean...worn down but clean and the bed was comfy. *They have a free breakfast in the morning. *It looked a lot nicer than some of the motels in the area. The negatives: *The area is not safe to walk around (you're less than a mile from McArthur Park, for goodness sakes, that should tell you something.) The streets around it are filled with low lifes and homeless people. *The room was small, but fine for two people who aren't going to be in it much. *The girl at the front desk gave us incorrect info that essentially would have made us miss our event. The street outside the hotel was going to be closed due to a bike marathon. The girl told us that we would need to be out of the hotel's parking lot by 10am if we wanted to be able to leave the parking lot (it was going to be roped off at 10). We went to leave at 9:15 and the parking lot was already roped off-- we were stuck and would not be able to exit the lot! The girl at the desk in the morning didn't even care, she just told us "Well, they must have done it early, I don't know what to tell you" We had to break the police tape and sneak out in order to leave the parking lot!

Disappointing

The "business center" is in fact a table in one corner with a computer that has no internet connection or even microsoft office? One can't even open a word document! I was given the key for a wrong room. In the middle of the night someone was trying to open my door. You can't access the reception area from the rooms side after 10 pm. They close the door. The "pool" is like a big tub next to the parking area. The only way to eat dinner is to order from outside. They have Dominos Pizza ad printed on their door keys. You think they would have some sort of arrangement with Dominos but no. You have to give the address in detail. There is no electric socket to plug in your charger. Unsafe location. The streets around the hotel are not lit at night. And I have seen several vans with groups of people who look like gangesters partying in the street, kissing, drinking, etc. The personnel: nice, but helpless. The problems with this hotel are bigger than any single person's capability. Other gests: frequently drunk, some look suspicious for men bringing in prostitutes, some argued with receptionist refusing to pay a refundable $* for incidentals.

Never again!

Closest place to eat was Burger King or Subway did not feel safe walking on sidewalks. Front desk was NO help when I asked about close-by dining locations and TV did not work. Rooms tiny. Air conditioning was very, very noisy due to bad fan motor. Room smelled moldy and of cigarette smoke (non-smoking room). Slept with lights on to keep roaches from moving around. Window would not close properly, so that I could adequately lock window. In evening, an employee hanging out in back parking lot had his van backed up to my exterior window with stereo blasting. Reported to front desk, and nothing was done. This continued over an hour. I finally got attention of the employee in parking lot and he did MOVE the fan a few windows down, but music still continued until way after dark. Front desk did not give wake up call - the evening clerk had forgot to make note I wanted wake-up. The breakfast area was adequate; standard dry cereal, bagels, bread, orange juice and lemonade (??? for breakfast), coffee (very good), and fresh waffles. I will say, the breakfast attendant was outstanding. Very, very noisy hotel; sirens going off constantly due to emergency traffic - understand there was a violent crime had taken place that evening shortly after dark. attendant, most hotel staff had very poor English skills.

Good hotel for younger people

The room was very clean: Good continental breakfast: Pool was noce: Parking was NOT\nGood at all. The spaces are tight and hard to get out when hotel is full. There was a bus that took up a good portion of the lot for two nights. Front desk people were okay. When I booked in advance this hotel was labled as Downtown LA. It is not far from LAX but neighborhood is not very good for a family with small children. We had No saftey issues but there was a few incidents across the street the first night. I am from Philly so I am use to big city atmosphere but if you have small children I would not suggest this area. Overall a great value, clean rooms and I will stay here the next time I vist LA.\n

Wouldn't stay there again!

this place was horrible, when we got there from universal studios there was no parking...the front desk staff took a long time on the phone before checking us in. maybe they were short staffed? unfortunately I asked by girlfriend and her family to book a room there with my family and after we all got checked in, they saw a huge flying bug in their room, I was so embarressed...they checked out, but we had to stay because all the other hotels in downtown were booked. I am still telling this story a year later.

Ghetto

I came to run the marathon. When I asked for extra blankets and pillows, they said they needed to wash them first and it took an hour and a half. BAD LOCATION! Remote control was duck taped together!

Not recommend

Staff was not friendly, talked over the phone for a long time when we checked in. No double-bed room for us even we reserved it, had to stay in a signle-bed room.

Almost ruined my time

We got to our first room and there was a HUGE roach! So they put us in a room downstairs and we thought that would be better. Then we killed 4 more in the other room. It was disgusting. They weren't your average roaches...they were HUGE
