Just reasonable considering the price
Posted Feb 15, 2017
My second time staying here. I returned because i enjoyed the location the first time. Just walk 10mins downhill to trendy Hermosa Beach. Of course, you'll need to walk back up the hill - it's not insignificant.
Now, the hotel: Well, the good news is that the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. In room coffee perculator, fridge, breakfast and wifi. Caveat here - housekeeping neglected to remove the previous guests clothes from a drawer....
Drawbacks - bathrooms are tired, old and in need of refurbishments. They are showing signs of wear and tear. WiFi is sketchy, drops in and out. Breakfast is serviceabe.... only. Served in a small dinky room with an adjoining terrace. The selection is relatively poor and unappetising, but if you close your eyes and smile it does the job. My room smelled of old socks this time. And, for a non-smoking room, someone had definitely been smoking in there before.
For what you pay - anywhere else in the world you would never return BUT it's LA, which is ridiculously expensive for what you get.
My best advice.... Dont go to LA. Go somewhere better. Otherwise, stay here if you dont mind paying US$160 for a 2+ starhotel thats just reasonable. Its actually, crazy as it sounds, comparitively good value! Go figure....
Service is friendly.
