So I made a reservation here because I needed to travel to my grandmother's funeral. I didn't do my usual due diligence and check the reviews but I wish I had! While driving to the hotel I checked the reviews and I was very concerned about what was being said but I'm a pretty easy going person so I thought...

Stayed at the Portola Inn for two nights, March 7 and 8 2017. When we arrived, the clerk at the desk was very friendly and said that he was there and happy to help whenever we needed it. That was the only positive thing about the Portola Inn. When we arrived in our room, there was a strange musky smell....

Overall a terrible experience. Arrived there past midnight due to family emergency. The staff was very unprofessional, the room had a very filthy smell overall a very dirty room. The toiletries seemed to already have been used by previous guests, (although not much of concern by me since I always carry my own when travelling). I wouldn't recommend this place...

I stayed here on a previous visit to LA and had no problems. This time I had problems from the time of arrival. One of my rooms smelled like marijuana, which was a huge problem. Front desk attendant was doing everything he could to help out. Had to end up putting a air purifier and scented deodorizer (that I bought)...

My wife and I, over the Memorial Day holiday, fell into this booking via Hotwire. It was awful, the worst motel I have patronized in over a decade. The staff was attentive enough, as we had to change rooms (more on that later), but overall the place is as fantastically awful as the worst of the reviews on here. As...

The area is sketchy. The hotel appears to have long term residents. The room appeared to be clean but saw a few bugs as we were packing to check out. As your pulling out of hotel don't make a left and drive past the overpass bridge. This area is absolutely not an area to find yourself in. Right, toward Beach...

The Portola is an average hotel centrally located for accessing the tourist must visits of Los Angeles. It is clean and comfortable and good for the price we paid. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

We were there for two days and when we arrived the toilet paper had already been used by the previous guests. The breakfast consisted of bananas and cheap pastries, which was almost okay but it wasn't okay when they just watched us look sadly at the empty banana container and didn't refilll. My room was very dusty so I suggest...
