First of all, obviously this is a budget motel, so calm down people. The room was quite small, but it was clean, trust me I inspected it with a flash light on my phone before checking in. The guy at the front desk was super nice, he let me see the room before checking in, so I went upstairs and went through everything very thoroughly . It was spotless, not a hair, nothing. Yes, it is a little old, carpet isn't perfect, who cares. The bathroom was tiny too, but clean. There was plenty of warm water. We came to LA for the weekend from Santa Barbara and our budget was low and this place was affordable. We were out all day and came back to the hotel to sleep at night, so it was perfect for that. It's not in a good area BUT it's not in a dangerous area, just not pretty that's all. The location was perfect for us, close to downtown and other parts of LA too that we visited. Parking is free, wi-fi is free. There are a lot of nice Mexican restaurants nearby. We had our little puppy with us too, and there is an extra $10 charge per pet/night which is super cheap compared to other places. The staff was nice so overall this was a good stay. If I could afford a 5 star hotel, I would stay there obviously, but right now I can't so this place was just perfect for our lovely weekend in LA. If you have the same kinda attitude as me, you'll like this hotel. If you're a difficult, picky person, stay at the Hyatt.
