Was in town for a concert at the Nokia Theater..The problems started as soon as we checked in..the lady at the front dest had a very bad attitude and was on the defensive for some reason..the bed only had sheets on it, went to shower and there were no face towels..called for some and they said they were out of them..and if I need anything I'd have to come down and get it..the sink was clogged. the toilet barely flushed, the shower knob would turn...It was horrible. Never again!!

I chose this hotel as it is close to USC (where I attend weekend classes). It provides pretty basic accomodations at a reasonable price in downtown LA. It's proximity to Staples Center and other attractions are it's only pluses.

The rooms themselves are reasonably clean. Given the general neighborhood, I would not recommend this hotel for families or people with young children.

I stay at this hotel two weekends a month when classes are in session. Since I arrive late at night and leave early in the morning, I was looking for basic accomodations that this hotel provides.

Pluses:
- Quick check-in
- Very cheap on-site parking ($2)
- Resonably clean (given the price)

Cons:
- Suspect location
- TV almost never clear!! I have stayed in four different rooms and they are all the same!
- The hotel corridors are a bit scary to walk in during the late hours of the night

My dad and I stayed at this Downtown Comfort Inn for 11 days while I looked for an apartment. The location is not the best, but the building is very quant and offers all basics. The room was just right and soon became home. Thank you to the staff. It was a great stay!!

We stayed here for 3 nights and that was hard work we stayed in the room as least as we could make sure our day was packed full of stuff to do.

The service and breakfast the same as any comfort inn was great but the rooms where old and a bit shabby, clean but old looking like my great Nan’s house!! The pool was as big as a bath tub and mega cold. It’s in the heart of Mexican village they are every where and in your face and a bit scary at times. The metro was down the road so we used that to get to universal studios but would get there at like 9am and then get a taxi back from the park at 11 so it was a case of bed and sleep.

The rooms where clean but old. That’s about it really.

Though it looks fine when I see this hotel from outside, I feel a little bad walking the aisle.Then, I and my wife were shocked by detecting a bug on our bed. It was just before we went to bed in the middle of the night. When I inform the front desk, he offered me more luxurious room. However, I realized in the morning that I am bitten in the room. I think all rooms in that hotel are full of bugs so I don't recommend this hotel to anybody

I have stayed in many Comfort Inn hotels and this one has by far been the best. The rooms are spotless and the service is superb. I will recommend this hotel to all visitors.
