We arrived on a weekday, early in the afternoon. The front desk staff were cordial and helpful. We were two adults and two children under 4. When we arrived, our room was not ready. A senior staff member offered to let us wait in the pool area under some shade. The room was clean. The furniture is relatively old but in good condition. There were ants in the "kitchen area" - where the sink, fridge, and microwave were, but the management is taking care of it--the fumigator was there during our stay. At night, the neighbourhood is generally quiet.
The continental breakfast begins at 6:30 a.m., which is great for those of us who are early birds.
We were able to get to the Convention Centre by bus - the Dash for only 25 cents per person. The Dash and other bus services are available within a block from the Inn.
There are lots of eating places in the vicinity - McDonalds, Subway, Mexican food, etc.
If we visited LA again and needed to be close to Downtown, I would definitely stay at this Inn. I recommend it for any traveller who wants to be close to Downtown.
