It was for a motel, a pleasant experience. The owner is very pleasant. The rooms are clean, spacious and toiletries well stocked. Location is ok. Must drive for services. Quite kind of place. When in LA ON BUSINESS, I would return.

We stayed for one night only. The room seemed clean enough, although the room smelled a lot like smoke. The location looks a little sketchy, but we didn't have any trouble. Free on site parking was great and not too many motels have that option in LA. Decent price too. I'd stay again if I'm around that area.

We had a very good time in El Rancho. The staff was very very helpful and friendly. The room was huge and more than enough for five people. Everything looked like newly refurbished. Beds were comfortable and the room had everything we could possibly need on a student budget. The only problem was the parking space, there is not enough...

We arrive our first night to the place, the staff was very nice and room was very good, the location is a bit far from the down town but if you with car it's not a problem at all. Very recommended place will definitely stay there again in my visit to LA

Wanted a budget one night place to stay near LA's downtown entertainment area (Staples center, Microsoft Theater, etc.). El Rancho Motel came up as one of the less expensive options without a majority of terrible reviews. Here's my high and low-lights: Pros Comfortable bed and pillows Microwave and fridge in room Free WiFi Nice shower (good water pressure and plenty...

My husband booked this place for two nights while we were in LA. The area is a shocker and to be honest, I nearly walked out as soon as we got there. The guy who takes your money sits behind a curtain and peeks out at you which is a bit disconcerting. The room itself was large and did have...

New motel, have everything you need and is clean and comfortable. Not in the best or most convenient of locations though. Takes a long time to get anywhere north of downtown. Area isn't the best, wouldn't particularly feel safe walking around late at night but for a couple of days stop it worked for us.

It was a very clean motel with spacious rooms. No breakfast or vending machines but loved the cleanliness and location.If you don't want to drive to downtown, there is a metro bus stop just a few steps away and you'll get to the downtown in no time.

Hubby and I stayed here for 4 nights and we were satisfied. The rooms are furnished like small studios but it works. The only cons were the bad lighting (for makeup application) at the sink, nonexistence of closet space or luggage racks for your clothes and limited parking when they're fully booked. Overall, centrally located near great restaurants, ex. Waba...

Ok so the neighbourhood doesn't look nice or safe but we didn't have any problems the whole 6 days there. The people are pretty friendly. The hotel doesn't look much from the outside. But they are doing it up. We have a newly done room and it's gorgeous. A big bed, huge shower. Nice big TV with so many channels....
