I've been staying at this motel two nights a week, for over a year now, so I know it inside out.
Let's start with the less-than-ideal.
This place is not new, but efforts are being made to re-model the rooms.
Depending on the room, the internet can be good or unusable, but again, they will put up a new Wi-Fi in the coming weeks.
Parking is very tight, but I park my car somewhere else so I don't care.
The good part.
It's CHEAP. The CHEAPEST. You cannot beat the price for location. The next cheapest motel would be Best Western at over $160 / night. Almost double.
You're 10 min from the Santa Monica beaches, you are next to UCLA, 3 min to 405, 10 min to 10. It's just the perfect location.
It's also clean. Clean sheets, towels, bathroom. You have your TV, fridge and all the basics you would need.
The staff is excellent. Both Julia and Attila are friendly, honest, responsive and they will make sure you have everything you need. There's also a strong European flavor about them, which I personally enjoy a lot.
So now you know. Manage your expectations, don't expect hotel-like quality (because you're not paying for it), and you'll find great value in this place.
