The rooms were noisy, people talking outside could be heard, they have eliminated parking and breakfast which made up for. The poor quality of the rooms

Property was normal clean and convinient. What i dislike.. of all 3 nights and days my son was unable to use the pool and no one staying tried to get in the pool but. Was freezing cold at all times. The hotel receptionis said that it was heated accordingly to reg temperature. THIS POOL IS NEVER HEATED!!!!! SO IS DECEIVING HAVING A POOL BUT THE GUESTS CAN NEVER USE IT.. seens weneeded a pool. I regret staying paying the price at this place. When i could have pay the same on agood hotel with heated pool. Plus my son is special needs and was very frustrated that he couldnt use the pool. 2nd dislike the hotel charges 10.00 parking per night but they dont tell you until you check in. VERY DECEIVING

I liked how close this property was to too a lot of venues and places that I need to go to. Such as the convention center and the shrine auditorium.

Location was great easy access to everything in LA

Convenient to Convention Center & USC. Many food choices nearby. Public transportation readily available. Nondescript small entrance makes it very difficult to enter & exit parking lot.

It was convenient location for us to take a train.

Hot coffee & very basic continental breakfast daily. But lots of overnight activity. Very loud. Many people coming in & out of units at all hours of the night. Pool gate was broken the entire time we stayed (25 nights). One of our rooms flooded in the middle of the night from the sink, which wasn’t running - the water was coming UP from the drain. Area is definitely inner city LA with transients on the street all around the property. However, location is convenient to lots of food options & parking is provided and *surprisingly* had no issues with break-ins or anything. Wouldn’t stay there again, but I suppose it wasn’t awful.

This was a completely fine place to stay. Convenient location. Basic stuff. Can't complain.

prostitution sting operation in room next door. no notice.

the guy in the front desk is super nice and helpful.

Like it a lot it was clean the location is very good

Good location but run down, terribly slow wifi. Fingy rooms not sound proofed

Cheap and close to downtown...............................................................

Good motel ....near restaurants and LA Memorial Coliseum

Room was big and bedding was comfortable. Furniture and decor are very outdated. The TV was an old tube TV with no hd or HDMI at all. A lot of restaurants were right outside and was a mile walk from convention center on same street.

Quick and easy check in and check out. Clean and comfy room.

Location to USC was great, within walking distance. Biggest complaint - they said we had WiFi and it never worked. Very frustrating!
