“not a new Studio 6”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Only parts of the room are updated unlike other new Studio 6 's in the chain.
Area seems a bit dodgey and borders the infamous area of Compton, but that does not mean you should not stay as the parking lot seems well back from any problems and was clean overall.
I would recommend staying here if your in the area only, its not that bad really.

We stayed in this motel in June 2013, after a 6days trip to Vegas and the hotel is weel located (not far from Venice Beach, and all the great things to do in LA.
We tried another Motel 6 before the Vegas trip and this one was better ! The price is low and the quality is here so we couldn't ask for more. We did not expect anything big but the housekeeeping did a great job as well as the receptionist (he recommended a great restaurant !). Theparking was safe ...
For all the people criticizing this hotel you should probably go in Beverly Hills and pay 1000$ per night before saying this hotel is not nice!

Room Tip: Do not hesitate and try it !

Stood here for labor day weekend..pictures that you see on their website are not what the rooms look like! Or the room overall.. The sheets of the bed were ripped, had blood stains, and were burned from what looked like cigarette marks..the bed totally failed! The carpet is beyond dirty, it has stains everywhere! To top it off they had a sofa in the room and it has got to be the most disgusting thing I've seen in my life! This sofa was sooooo dirty, that you couldn't even see what the real color of the sofa was..the t.v is from the 90's, along with the t.v stand! Overall i will never stay in this location again!! Ive stayed at motel 6 by disneyland and that location is super clean and everything in the room is good! I say you pay few bucks more and stay somewhere better!

This is not a area that I would like to visit often, but like one of the reviews the value was great. The staff was very nice, free internet. The room was clean, there was a table and two chairs so we had nice dinner. While the area is not one that I liked for the price of the room and the how very nice it was we will are considering for monthly date nights.

I booked this trip online, found the cheapest rate, I wanted to stay only 5 nights to do some business.
I am familiar with the area of the hotel but didn't check the address til I arrived to LAX.
the hotel is located in not so great area especially fave to or walking, restaurants and shopping, you have to have transportation, the you can access all kinds of good shopping, food, entertainment.
when I went to my room I was pleasantly surprised with new remodeled rooms with new carpet and cool bathroom, free internet access and free parking
good for business traveler or adults traveling with a car.
I will stay their again
