I was very apprehensive about staying in LA, when I first pulled up to this motel, I was seriously nervous, wondering what the heck I got myself into. I came in at night straight from the freeway.
When I expressed my doubts to the clerk at check in, she assured me it was a safe neighborhood, she said we could easily walk around the corner to Fresh and Easy Market, and in the morning easily walk over to USC for our tour. I was traveling alone with my daughter, so of course I was concerned!
The clerk was right, very safe neighborhood , lots of students walking and riding their bikes, we had no problems, in fact we were very comfortable out walking at night.
The room was clean and comfortable as other reviews have stated, nothing special, the air conditioner was noisy, but provided a great white noise to sleep to.
It's not the Marriott but it was close to USC, it was comfortable , clean and quiet.
We did not eat the continental breakfast, lots of yucky looking doughnuts and sweet rolls, not my thing, but other people seemed to enjoy it!
If you are visiting USC and need a reasonably priced motel, you have found it!
