Good location. The staff was helpful, courteous and informative about locations. The room was big and clean. The bed was comfy. Nice TV with HDMI hookups. In my room the WIFI had a Weak reception. Shower area was not clean enough. Limited parking spaces.

I really appreciate The Royal Pagoda Motel which is in Chinatown L.A, the man at the reception was kind and helpful when I asked him some questions about the city. I was in a bad mood after my first hotel in L.A which was really bad and when I arrived at this hotel, I was glad to see this man...

We booked this very last minute and it was a good find. Just on the edge of Chinatown but the location is very good and we felt safe. There are lots of restaurants around and taxis are cheap enough to get to downtown LA. Room was lovely and clean and the staff were very friendly. Only downside was the hairdryer...

The location is fun, in the midst of China Town filled with great places to eat. The room was clean, and had all the bare necessities. Although the bathroom could've been cleaned a little better, ie. Bathroom light covered in light dust, overall I did not feel uncomfortable in the place. The rooms are small but if you're just looking...

The motel is in china town, just a few meters down the street you find quite a lot of Chinese restaurants of all kinds. For everything else in LA I recommend a car, traffic is horrible but parking readily available everywhere. The motel offers parking as well, even though( we stayed for 4 nights) in the evening you might have...

Needed a place at the last minute and found this. Great place, fairly cheap for LA. Great location, right in the heart of Chinatown. Rooms were nice, with hardwood floors instead of the usual gross carpet. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was not really updated, but it was fine. Room comes with fridge. There is a microwave for use at the...

Sometimes when I need to stay in LA, I just want someplace clean and located close to downtown. The Royal Pagoda fits the bill perfectly! I've always found the staff to be friendly, as well as the other travelers whom you invariably talk to while checking in or getting coffee or tea at the front desk. The rooms are clean...
