We stayed there over the Christmas holidays when we were in LA for the Rose Bowl. The hotel was easy to find, inexpensive, and clean quiet and safe. Exactly what I was looking for. Staff was efficient and pleasant. Facilities worked as expected. The rooms we stayed in had kitchenettes. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised given some of the negative reviews. The neighborhood is fine - not a "gang 'hood" as someone said. It's just a working class neighborhood. We didn't notice any road noise at all, like one review claimed.
Easy access to I-405 and route 170. Close to grocery stores, Walgreens and other places to eat. Right across the street from an interesting little Russian food market.
