This is a noisy hotel. The next building is arms length away and has dogs that bark continually if the owner is not home, I presume, because it can go on for hours and hours and then stops. There is also airplane noise which I expected, but the street noise even in back comes right through.
Main complaint is the internet didn't work AT ALL!!! I don't carry a smart phone so to me having a hotel with internet you can actually use is SO important. The guy at lobby window did let me sit in the side room to use internet which was nice but having it when you need it and in your room is worth paying extra for elsewhere.
I spent a lot of time at McDonalds after that so I could use internet.
The hotel seems to harbor mostly longer term boarders. Marijuana smoke drifted out of the room nearest mine. I never once saw anyone come or go that looked like a regular traveler-yet im sure they have some. I just didn't see one.
I found the bed to be fine for this price range hotel. The room was large. A waste basket in the bathroom or area of sink though would be helpful. The only one is at the entry to the room.
I was concerned the small lot would fill up if I left later for dinner but the lady at the desk said don't worry! She was right. It does have free parking. Some hotels charge! They have a service that stops by for the airport at $10, but I had a car.
There is no elevator. You carry your bags up steps. 42 steps up to my floor....yea I counted them 4 x 8 and then a 10! Some people with health issues or of advanced years could have real trouble here.
Some peoples reviews here said unsafe. I didn't see anyone lurking though that looked like a danger inside the hotel property. The area is heavily Mexican/Salvadoran so you have some good eating options out there too for those willing to go beyond the average American comfort zone. Some of the taco trucks on Inglewood Blvd are highly rated on here and they had quite a crowd. I didn't try them as it was cold, and dark, but next time Im going to the trucks!
I don't know if they put out breakfast or not. Usually they tell you something on checkin as to hours and location. He said nothing, but I later saw a set up when I used the internet there. So maybe they do. However with no internet I was off to McD to eat where I could use internet.
The manager told me they were working on their internet, ETHOSTREAM to get it working right then...but nothing ever changed. Still didn't work the next day either.
