    Property condition


    Clean basic room and bathroom.

    The room was clean but very basic. Staff were friendly. Location is not somewhere you'd recommend to walk around for food etc.

    5/5 Excellent

    I am rating this motel with 5 stars. Clean room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom. The young men at the reception were friendly and helpful (thanks guys! ) Cleaning ladies were nice and polite. This is LA where traffic noise and homeless people are 24/7 , but we didn’t have any inconvenience by that. Downtown and Chinatown are near. Several bus stops outside the motel. We had a wonderful time in LA.

    5/5 Excellent

    Very nice motel in a convenient area. A lot of eateries nearby, in walking distance. Many tourist attractions located around 20 minutes away by car.

    Stayed 3 nights in Aug 2018


    The staff were fantastic, super friendly and helpful. We arrived early and they were able to help us with an easily check in and then allowed us to store our bags for the day once we had checked out. The process was simple and easy. The exterior of the motel was 'shabby', but the interior was surprisingly clean, neat and tidy. Our only issue was the shower. The water was pure cold water, we tried everything (even the sink taps) to get hot water for a shower. It was late at night. We were disappointed as we were flying back to Australia the following day so would have really liked to clean our bodies! The beds were also quiet uncomfortable, even though they were large. We were only given one pillow each also, so comfort wise it was not great.

    Pros: Staff were friendly and accommodating, room was clean and neat.

    Cons: Better hot water amenities. For the price, it would be nice for tea/coffee to be provided in the room also.

    Location: The neighbourhood was quiet 'dingy' and for a tourist, scary and off-putting. We took a 10 minute uber to dodger stadium, 20 minute uber to universal
