I came to stay here for about 21 days, and I had a great experience. It was neat, cozy, tidy, quiet. It was great I had a kitchenette -- with dishes, pots, pans, and the whole shabang to be able to store food and put together a little something to eat whenever I wanted. There were extra blankets, sheets, pillows, lots of towels and an extra futon bed for accommodation.
It also felt very safe because the hotel was gated and self locking whenever the door opened/closed which made me feel secure being in a place I wasn't familiar with. Especially since I stayed here throughout the duration of my entire surgery, and knew I was safe while I was recovering. The hotel is also located walking distance to the metro station/bus stops and there are places to eat nearby.
Don, the manager was awesome -- more than helpful. He'd been very accommodating throughout my entire stay since the first day I came and had some issues, and was only a phone call away when I needed him for anything. When I did call him for anything, he came as soon as he could to help out, which was comforting given that I was traveling alone for the first time and knew whatever I needed at the hotel would be taken care of! So if you're reading this Don, thanks a bunch, you're the best! xo :)
If I do come back to LA, I'll be staying here again.
