Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #240 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 21 June 2012

The customer service agents at the check-in desk are sweet and friendly.
The room basically feels more like a studio apartment. It's clean, but not fancy.
When it came time for sleeping, as we were on the 7th street side, we had to close all the windows to block out traffic sounds. (Also, there were 4 gunshots fired right across the street side our room the first night at 3:30am. We called 911 to come take a look.) Closed windows were ok because there was an A/C unit in the wall.

Bottom line, it's cheap, it's clean, it's basic.
I wouldn't recommend trying to get home to this place late at night. It gets shady in this neighborhood. Not that I felt threatened, but I know it's not really safe.

P.S. Forget about the continental breakfast. It's pretty much just cereal. :) And the pool was closed while we were there. It's your basic outdoor pool.

Checked in Monday Night, checked out the following morning. Room just made our skin crawl. Although it was fairly quiet, the area was just too sketchy to make me feel at ease. The walls were extremely filthy. Bathroom door was stained with who knows what..poop, boogers, blood, dirt? On one side of the wall closest to the 2nd bed that seperated the bathroom, there what seemed to be a dried up bloody loogie. The bathroom sink always clogged up for no apparent reason. This place is beyond low budget and they should be charging less.
After driving from San Francisco and checking into this place, you want to kick of those shoes and releax. BUT!! The carpet felt so dirty and disgusting I made sure we all wore our shoes no matter what, and also made sure our 1 year old didn't crawl on the floor.

The front desk person was very helpful. He usually works the 12 am to 8:00 a.m. but that night was doing double shift because the other person was sick. He let us choose the room. Unfortunately, my daughter hurt her ankle with the bed frame and she was bleeding and in a lot of pain. We had to get the front person to try to cover the door frame so that did not happen again. The following day they shaved down the bed frame to make sure that does not happen again and was told they were going to make sure other rooms did not have same problem with bed frame.

One piece of advise, the bathroom sink is very small and does not have a counter where you can put toothbrushes, toothpaste and mouthwash. You barely have room to put that, so it is a little uncomfortable when you have more than one person sharing the same bathroom. In our case there were 3 of us. We managed but I wanted you to know.

The breakfast in the morning was average. The bagels are small, they have cereals and milk as well. The orange drink is Sunny Delight and I really do not like it, but that is just my personal opinion.

Free speed internet did not work properly inside the room.

After reading some reviews on this hotel I had to check this place for myself. As soon as we got there the clerk was friendly,the hotel has plenty of parking spaces, the room was clean,especially the bathroom. The area was great for its price,it was quiet throughout the nights we were there. Best value and my family and I enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: Reservation through their own website.

I got there around 4 PM, there was some kind of construction going on at the other end of the motel. If they are improving the place, it was a good sign. May not be good for people that want to sleep during the daytime though.

Checkin was simple enough, the rooms are a decent size. Very Green with the hardwood floors and energy saving lights. the flatscreen was nice, although the cable selection could have been better.
