Although I have no proof, I have a sneaky suspicion that some of the 5-star reviews were written by the night attendant behind the bulletproof glass in the lobby.
We chose the location due to its proximity to Hollywood and LAX. I was also impressed with its many glowing reviews. But our experience was less than stellar. My first clue that something was amiss should have been when I called to let them know that we would be late for our check-in time…and there was no answer at the front desk. We arrived, and were told the room I reserved was unavailable, but he would “upgrade” me at no charge. We were given a 2-bedroom efficiency, with a sleeper-sofa and kitchen. Now I’m no hotel snob…all I ask is a clean, quiet room and a reasonable price, but this place was not good. Stained carpet and furniture, cigarette burns on the tables and sinks, mystery smudges on the walls. The only place to eat near-by was a seedy burrito joint a block away. We drove to a mall area about 15 minutes away to get a decent meal. When we got back, I went down to the rental car to get a few last minute items, and on the way back passed several slackers on my floor smoking weed outside their room, and giving me dirty looks. During the night, a group of motorcycle riders were gunning their engines in the parking area, and when police or fire trucks went by with sirens blaring, I thought they were going to come right through the wall. We got up early, and got out of there as fast as we could. I wish we would have paid a few bucks more and stayed at on of the big chain hotels that were just as close to LAX and Hollywood.
