Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I made a reservation for my 18 year old for an USC event. Instead of giving him the standard room as reserved, they gave him a suite and then charged him $50 extra. I called them and they insisted that my son asked for that specific type of room, which was not true. We have never had problems like this...

It would have been perfect if the heating system was was working properly because it was cold that weekend. Also the price was just as much as Holiday INN and they are not a Holiday INN Hotel. Then that weekend, we lost hot water for 2 hours early in the afternoon.

Was $98+tax here with free parking, v. $249+tax+$25 parking at the Radisson, and I decided I could economize for one night. Was it a good choice? I had seen people here say that it was a good price for the location, but some...

Our room had not been totally serviced, needed soap, bathtub had not been cleaned. This was our second bad experience in recent months. The first time we were assigned a room that had not been serviced at all, I thought someone was already assigned that room because when I opened the door the television was on and the bed was...

No problem with parking, plenty of space, area was very clean. Very courteous receptionist, easy and fast check in. Room was very clean. TV worked perfect. Cold night and heater warmed enough the room. Comfortable bed, very happy stay. I will come back.

This was the worst place I have ever stayed. No Internet; no ESPN (they have the cheap version of Dish TV); clientele were very shaky; drug deals happening in the parking lot; ants in the bathroom. When I reported these things, the desk clerk just looked at me and said: we have never had these problems. REALLY?! It was clean...that's...

This is a utilitarian motel, clean and safe but definitely not going to win any points for style. I rated it Very Good because it was a good value for the cost and it was walking distance to USC, where I was going for research.

Pretty high price for an average motel with terrible wifi (devices complain about untrusted SPN certificate source and when connected connection is too slow to even browse facebook). The room was clean and there was enough space, however service wasn't great when I tried to check in and there was some trouble with my credit card, didn't allow me to...
