Late review as we stayed in April. We got the three queens room and it was huge compared to many other motels we stayed in. Bathroom was large as well. The room was very simple, no closet, just a table, small sofa and some chairs. The area is not the nicest. We walked to get dinner and it wasn't a good idea. On the other hand it's a short drive to Echo park which is quite nice and there are many good food places a short drive away. It's convenient and very simple, parking is limited on site (hard to get a spot if you get in late).
