The motel is 20 min from LAX and closed to Beverly Boulevard. The receptionist is not kind. The rooms are not clean and i stayed there 6 nights and no change of sheets. The breakfast is poor, some donuts, milk coffe and oranje juice. The structure is from the 80s so it's not new. The price-quality is ok. But for the same amount of money in the States you can find higher quality motels. There is a small swimming pool but it's directly on the parking. So no fun. It's not the best place to relax and to stay comfortable.

So Ive been travelling all over the world and i'm pretty laid back....i also dont normally write reviews as i dont mind a bit of dirt or if something is not perfect but we checked in to this motel and i always ask for a room upstars as there are less insects...anyway i was sat on the bed when a huge cocroach ran out from under the bed....i was a bit grossed out but decided to try catch it..... until i pulled the cover back off the bed and found loads of little lice looking things crawling all over the sheets....I have stayed in some awful places in vietnam and never seen anything this bad, so i went down and said at the desk that i was willing to stay there if they could move me to another room which they refused to do and they also refused to give me a refund so we had to leave and pay for another room in another motel! DO not go here

Room Tip: go somewhere else

Me and my husband stayed here one night as we were going out in Hollywood, live in the burbs and wanted to relax and have a few drinks. I booked this before seeing all the awful reviews, but it was fine. Whilst I appreciate that other travellers may have had a worse experience than us, I felt I had to provide some balance and respond to some of the criticisms. For $61 incl tax, I think it was fine. Yes the decor is dated (70s/80s), but you can't expect stylish at this price at this location. Our room was clean, bed comfortable with clean sheets, towels, shampoo and soap. We arrived around 7.30pm on a friday and had no problem getting a parking space outside our room. Staff on reception were polite and were happy to direct us to an ATM and call us a taxi. Lots of useful tourist info in the lobby. We came back to the hotel around 2am and didn't have any problems with safety but surely you should be careful almost anywhere in LA at night? We didn't have the included breakfast. Not atmospheric, romantic or a treat, but fine as a place to crash. We will probably use it again.

We had stayed in November. We called the next month to ask if they had rooms available but did not make a reservation. They charged our credit card for the night! Our bank had to dispute the unauthorized stay. If you stay there, pay cash or you can regret it later.

I stayed there with a good friend of mine for 3 nights. Very old and outdated. However, our room (133) was clean. One queen bed had a noticeable dip in it. Pillows were terrible. No TV remote. Fridge did not close properly due to the freezer not being defrosted. Small amount of parking (you may have to park on the driveway if there's none left). In a "sketchy" area of town. We got in after dark and were a little bit worried for our safety but it seemed ok during the day. Continental breakfast was a joke (OJ=Tang, coffee and donuts). Free Wifi though.
