Worst hotel I've ever stayed in beds are hard as a rock, didn't sleep well at all, shower head water flow was awful, bathroom very small & dingy, iron mark burn on the carpet in our room, no staff to bring towels to our room had to go get them ourselves, the swimming pool is the size of a postage...

Booked last minute online and pricing is pretty expensive around $97 a night. They have narrow parking spaces and a tiny swimming pool. I get to the front desk to check in and the guy that works there says the room that he was giving us was a "good one" and that I would "really like it". I thought we'll...

Stayed in a 3-bed room which was ok for the money we spent. The Motel is really simple with budget breakfast. The Parkinglot was full almost every day. Worth the money and an extra plus for the pool if the weather is hot..

Nice, clean, spacious room. King sized bed was comfortable. Fairly central location to all tourist attractions. Staff we're friendly and courteous. Great view of the city from our room. Would definitely stay there again!

Reception staff is very helpful, the family room (2 king beds) although big isn't great. No view - probably for any rooms. The hotel does not have a restaurant but has in-room dining - food provided by few restaurants with whom they have a tie-up. Breakfast is name-sake. It is within short walking distance from a 24 hr subway and...

Breakfast was horrible. We had to go to IHOP. Beds were uncomfortable. No storage space in room. No room service. I called room service for extra blankets. My wife and I had to pick them up at the front desk. I saw three Police helicopters flying nearby the hotel. This hotel is located in a very seedy area of Los...

Booked on very short notice. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, new windows, new paint, new big screen TV, new mattresses. Free WIFI and fridge in the room. The furniture was old, needs upgrading. Breakfast is simple but filling (milk, cereal, waffles, coffee, juice). Good value for the money.
