On a west coast college tour and this hotel had comfortable beds and walking distance to USC. (2 blocks) We saved parking costs by leaving the car in the hotel parking lot. I'm a princess when it comes to beds and even brought along a mattress pad. Didn't need it here. Good price but a little rough around the edges....

Front desk staff very friendly. Maintenance was very helpful. Housekeeping was so so had a issue with our room was taken care of satisfactory. Felt like I was mislead by housekeeping supervisor/manager. But general manager stood behind her word. I would stay here again.

There are several Eateries within Walking Distance to choose from, and only a block away from the Expo Shrine which was our primary spot and where our show was. Prices are considered decent for this college town location. Should I need to return, I would stay again.

This is the second time I've stayed at this location, as it's the least-expensive option for when you need to be near USC. Some of the rooms have been renovated (e.g. with flat screen TVs). Since I just wanted to be as far from the street noise as possible, I ended up in a room that hadn't been remodeled, which...

If I could rate this a 0 I would. The hotel staff did not apologize or hello, rooms had ground in dirt. I guess for California and the LA area this is what you get for the rate we paid! You'd think we were there for free. I'm from India my husband is a Caucasian. Hotel staff at desk constantly...

This is a gem of a motel. The housekeeping staff went above and beyond for us and this propertty is a great value. Centrally located, clean, great donuts, pet friendly and safe. We were there recovering from a bad accident and the staff was very accommodating, kind & professional. If you need to be near USC or downtown Los Angeles,...

I made a reservation for my 18 year old for an USC event. Instead of giving him the standard room as reserved, they gave him a suite and then charged him $50 extra. I called them and they insisted that my son asked for that specific type of room, which was not true. We have never had problems like this...

It would have been perfect if the heating system was was working properly because it was cold that weekend. Also the price was just as much as Holiday INN and they are not a Holiday INN Hotel. Then that weekend, we lost hot water for 2 hours early in the afternoon.

I picked this place because of the price and location - I needed to be near USC. Was $98+tax here with free parking, v. $249+tax+$25 parking at the Radisson, and I decided I could economize for one night. Was it a good choice? I had seen people here say that it was a good price for the location, but some...
