I was looking for a low-budget motel near LA convention center to stay for a week to attend a conference there, and this was the lowest price motel I found nearby. When I first arrived my first impression was that the furniture looks old but the room and bathroom were clean with the basic stuff that I needed. It was fair enough for the price I am paying. From the first day of my stay, I realized I have made the right choice by choosing this place. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful. At first the owner was so patient guiding me how to get to any location. On next day, when I was leaving to the conference the owner told me that he can drop me at the conference! I never expected this generosity! When I asked the owner's wife about a nearby discounted store, she said that there is one nearby but there is another one better that is a bit far. She said she and her husband can drive me to there! Not only they did so but also they bought me a wonderful dinner on the way back. During my stay there, I felt I am home, and the owner, his wife and the rest of the staff made me feel home and whenever I need any help they were there for me.
Let me talk about the room itself. The room was satisfactory for me. I had comfortable bed and the bathroom was clean. At first some of the furniture looked a bit old but on the third day of my stay they replaced the old study tables and chairs with new ones. There was free internet which was important for me. The complementary breakfast was also good: loaf, cereal, jam, better, milk, coffee, tea, and fruit drink. There was no safety deposit box in the room, but I could safely leave my money in an envelope with the hotel staff at the reception as the owner advised me to not carry lots of money around.
The motel location was great. I had to walk for about 5 minutes to get the metro station from which I needed about 15-20 minutes to get to Hollywood and Universal City! Macy's was only few minutes walk from the hotel and there were many restaurants and shops nearby. The motel is on the main road so I felt safe walking at night though it was quiet at night at the block of my motel so I tried to be back before 9 pm as I was by myself in LA.
In general I was very satisfied with my stay and the friendly staff made me feel home! I will definitely get back to stay there again if I have to get back to LA! I would love to say big thanks for the owner and his wife for their incredible generosity and hospitality!
