After researching extensively because I had no clue about the areas in Los Angeles, I made reservations here and hoped for the best. As we approached the hotel, I was a little concerned as the surroundings were a somewhat sketchy...adult bookstores, check cashing, liquor stores...I was worried a little. But none of that mattered. This place was super clean, every member of the staff was kind and accommodating, and the price could not be beat comparatively with many other places in the LA area. Believe me, I checked.
We stayed in the king suite, room 266 to be exact, and we got a roll out bed. This was enough space for three older teenage boys, my husband, and myself. The air conditioning was super cold and so was the refrigerator. When we asked for extra towels, we got them, no attitude or inconvenience. Our hands were full when we first went to open our door, but the nice maintenance man opened our door for us. There is a cute little pool and hot tub if you desire some relaxation. All the pics I've seen posted seem accurate. The one drawback to our room was the fact that a fire station is across the street and goes on runs every now and then, so bring some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, but don't let that stop you from getting a room.
Parking is a bit tight if you come home later. We squeezed into a few spots and shimmied out of the car. However, it is gated in the back and feels very safe. But I feel we could have parked out front as well with no problems. The property, inside and out, is well kept. My initial feelings of anxiety about the location quickly dissipated as we walked up and down the street several times to the 7-11 and next door to the CVS. Everyone we met was kind.
Concerning the breakfast, which others have commented on, it was fine. Exactly what you would expect...bagels, muffins, two types of cereal, toast, oatmeal, some fruit, juice, coffee/tea. It fed our family each day and saved us a lot of money. LA has expensive food!! Honestly, with the way we ran the air conditioning and the amount of food we ate, I don't know how they can charge such low rates.
Finally, free cookies!! I know that they are probably for the checking in customers but the staff didn't mind if my three scavenging teenage boys popped downstairs for a cookie or two each day. They are not always available, so it kind of turned into a game. How nice of them to let them have them!! Such kind people here.
