Though the neighborhood is not one of LA's finest, the hotel is in a great location if you're looking to see all the tourist sites. It's only a three-stop Metro ride to Hollywood/Highlands (Mann's Chinese Theater, etc.), which is excellent.
The room was clean and had all the amenities you need in a hotel - hairdryer, toiletries, etc. I would recommend requesting a second or third-floor room, as there's a nightclub on the ground floor that is a bit loud. However, if you put the fan on at night, you can't hear anything.
The continental breakfast is not bad - nothing to write home about, but you can get a pretty basic meal to start your day. The variety was actually more than I expected.
If you're looking for a hotel on a budget that gives you the freedom to see LA, this is a good bet. Take the normal precautions you would when traveling to any large city and you'll be fine.
