Knights Inn Los Angeles Central/Convention Center Area
Ranked #151 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 10 September 2013

We booked the Knights Inn for one night as a base to explore LA and Hollywood, however we extended our stay, to a total of 4 nights since we enjoyed it so much. Each person on the reception desk was 100% helpful and literally went out of their way to make sure our stay was the best it could be. Room was good, comfortable beds, and good air-con worked well, much needed on a hot LA summers day! We also enjoyed the waffles they provided as part of the included breakfast, great start to each day! :)
They have free car parking, and free wi-fi which works well even for youtube and such.
Short drive to Hollywood, to Santa Monica, to downtown LA, and the surrounding areas.
Across the street is a convenience shop which has all the essentials for snacks and drinks which is really useful as well.
Overall, We would gladly stay here again and also recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable location to stay while in LA.

This hotel is a hidden treasure. Only 1 mile for Dodger stadium the rooms are clean and refurbished. Direct tv with over 300 channels, free breakfast, free secure underground parking and most of all the BBQ restaurant on site The Parks Finest... Wow. I paid less than hundred dollars and had a pleasant two day stay. The staff of the hotel are great and very knowledgable about the local area. Don't miss the Walt Disney Concert hall and the fashion district. Thanks and see you soon.

We arrived here after driving from San Francisco, so it was quite late. Lady at check in was very friendly and helpful, gave us all the info we needed. The room was great, newly decorated and the most comfortable bed we've slept on in a hotel for some time at this price range. Nice big LCD tv on the wall and good wifi coverage

This was a fair distance from Disneyland and your usual LA attractions, but close if you are working in the CBD. There is also a bus stop across the street for those without a vehicle.Breakfast was basic but a nice waffle to go with it and we always filled up on this. Hardly needing any lunch which saved us time and money.

The only down side to this hotel was the fact that parking was a little scarce, one night we arrived late after seeing the fireworks at Disneyland and there were only 2 car parks left 1 was too small for our car and the other we couldn't fit as someone had parked over the line. We asked the man at the counter if we could park up against the brick wall for the night, he said no and didn't offer any alternative and couldn't even tell us the rules about parking on the street. so we had to park on the street which was free overnight and then a 1 hour limit from 8am which was a slight pain as we were hoping for a sleep in. To rub salt in the wound 2 days later we found 2 cars parked against the brick wall.

To sum it up, it was very nice, very clean. Just a minor let down with the parking.

Thank you for you compliments and I hope you enjoyed Disneyland.

Regarding the parking, we do our best to accommodate our guests but sometimes the lot fills up and the staff parks their vehicles against the wall. We monitor the lot at all times so we are able to move staff vehicles to let guests out. We prefer not to let guests park against the wall since we are not able to move the vehicles.

Again, thank you for staying with us and for the kind words!

The room we had was large and the beds were king size and very comfortable, with a desk for do office work with ones computer, and this was very convenient. There was a large flat screened TV, which was well serviced by the staff, if any thing went wrong with it. There was a fridge for keeping thing cold: a large duchess for our clothes and walk in wardrobe. An ironing board and iron. The bathroom was a good size with bath and shower facilities. We took showers, and the water was plentiful and nice and hot, (having room to adjust and more for heat). We could take showers any time of the day. A hair drier was available, but did not use it. We were able to wash small items, and hang them to dry. The room had a balcony with comfortable rocking chairs and table, which was very nice as the weather while we were there was in the mid twenties. We had air conditioning in the room.
The linen was changed every day, with nice white linen. Room service was very good if one needed anything.
All the staff are friendly and they did all they could to make our stay a very pleasant one.
The Inn is situated in a residential area, but a bus service is right outside the door, and taxis etc were readily available.. The Union Station was a short bus ride away.
There were little stores where one good get most of the necessary things, needed while on holiday. There is even a Bakery over the road, where one can get yummy fresh baked bread and all sorts of other caked and lunch snacks and light meals. The service here was very nice and friendly.
We were directed to a Laundry/Dry cleaner for the washing, which was very good. I left the washing and it was all ready the next day. I picked it up, so I don't know whether there was a delivery service. The standard of the laundry was very good.
Over all I would recommend Knights Inn to anyone who does not mind an older style building. For us, we found Knights Inn a very friendly and comfortable place to stay and the service by all the staff, was exceptional!
The other thing I forgot to mention was, we had breakfast provided free each day! Waffles were made fresh each day, with Maple Syrup and they were delicious.
My husband liked the friendly, well light reception area, which looked out onto the road and also the breakfast room, where one could listen to the news while eating and also look out onto the street. There was a patio with flower planters to sit at, when waiting for a taxi or just if one want to enjoy a quiet spell. Knights Inn is a very pleasant place to stay!

Reading the pass reviews, I was a little worried about picking this hotel. However when I arrived I felt welcomed. The staff including the Manager know the meaning to great customer services. The room was nice and remodeled but the bathroom could use a little touch up. There is free parking, which is underneath the hotel. I recommend this hotel to everyone. The price was good and the location is 5 mins driving to the Staples Center.

Room Tip: Bring fresh towels. Some of their towels had stains.

The outside of this property was a little dirty and run down when we first arrived so we were a little worried. We had nothing to worried about though. Our room was very big and had a decent queen size bed which was fantastic. The room was also freashly painted and was bright and colour full. The bathroom was still old but it was not dirty like other reviews have said.

George, the manager, was very accomadating only complaint is we were promised a fridge in the room but we never got one nothing to big. All stuff where very friedly no trouble with gettting directions or help on what to see or do when we were stuck.

The Knights Inn was also located right in front of a bus stop that took us EVERYWHERE we needed to go. The trip to Hollywood was about a 15minute trip which wasnt too bad.

For the price it was a fantastic place to stay, we stayed for 10nights and had not one complaint. The free breakfast they have every morning was simple but did the job each morning. I highly reckomend Knights Inn if your looking for cheap but easy.

The outside is pretty daunting when you turn up, but the rooms are nice & spacious, made a mistake by not realising that it is on the back of a freeway, very noisy if you open the doors. One thing that was worrying us when we arrived was that there were a fair amount of "characters" in this area giving us the stare, not exactly the place you would go & venture out for a pint somewhere. On the upside, the breakfast was quite good & spacious room for all the guests, there was also a nice European girl who made me waffles which was a bonus ;)

Thank you for your honest review. We strive to make the property better and look at the reviews to address any issues we can. We are actually renovating the exterior of the property this week.

Unfortunately having skid row in downtown LA there will always be characters in the general vicinity but this is an issue with most properties in Downtown LA. We do provide gated parking with 24x7 CCTV monitored by our staff and we pride ourselves in providing a safe comfortable environment.

I am glad you enjoyed our newly remodeled rooms and breakfast and hope to see you here again with our renovating frontage and new onsite restaurant.

Thanks Again!
