Stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 08 during a road trip of Cali with my husband. I booked the hotel as is very retro and my husband and I are big fans of this style.
When we got there, the room we were assigned to stank of cigarettes, so we asked to change and this was done with minimal fuss. The new room was better, although there definitely was a faint cigarette smell (not my favourite aroma!). The rooms were adequate, although I made sure I kept my shoes on all the time as the carpet actually made my husband's bare foot black. I kid you not.
There is a pool but it seemed to be in permanent shade and I didn't see anyone in it. Looks good in photos though!
There is free parking underground. Not sure why all the other reviewers say it's a nightmare - it was tight, but we had a Chrysler convertible which is definitely not a small car, and we managed fine. My guess is everyone else must be really bad drivers..
The best thing about this place was the Swingers diner next door. Very cool place to have breakfast, with good service, delish granola, lovely fruit salad.
Location was very good - The Grove and the Farmer's Market are nearby which make for a fun evening. There is a FANTASTIC Mexican grill in the Farmer's Market. Think it was called something like Loqueidas. You'll know it as there's always a long queue, but totally worth the wait. There is also a great flea market on Sunday mornings at the local Fairfax high school.
All in all, the place was cheap, service not bad, and great location. It wasn't the cleanest place in the world, but you can't win them all. I would definitely stay here again if it was just for one night. Any more than that and I think I would look elsewhere.
