Nothing Special

Stayed here because it was close to a friend's house. Really nothing special about this place. Have to give credit for being quiet. Should I need to stay in this part of town I would probably stay again.

Good Value

Good value. Good location if want to be near LAX, venice, marina del mar and 25 mins from Hollywood. Hotel is made over. Everything is fine with this place, it's renovated and modern, not plush and overly comfortable, but acceptable. Walking distance to pretty good restaurants and small shopping center coffee bean etc adjacent to hotel. I walked to KC Crepes in the am at 9 and the lobby breakfast was bumping euro techno beats pretty loud which was slightly comedic. Lots of Euros checking in when I was. Front desk friendly and professional. Parking is on street. There's a garage next door but decided to valet as another reviewer said it was $20, but it was actually $27. Still a good rate nonetheless. Bed was more comfortable than I thought. I had a decent view on 6th floor. Decor in room is I don't know Euro Mod I guess. Not plush but not bad. I would recommend for the value and easy access. Would stay again but probably stay somewhere else with my family., unless it was a short stay.

Very nice stay

No major issues at this hotel. In a relatively good location. Far enough outside of the city so it's not too bad in price but you can still get into the city to do everything. Things like breakfast and parking were all extra but I think that's what you're going to find everywhere in this city. Good stay!

Housekeeping disappointing

Pro: The location was good. It's closed to LAX. They have a free shuttle service. The guy at the front desk who took care of my check-in was very nice and very friendly. Next day I saw him picking up the trash and lining up the cushion of the sofa neatly at the lobby. He was the only person doing that during my stay. Con: The housekeeping was disappointing. They left the used socks from a previous guest at the corner of the floor. They didn't change a bed cover even though it had a stain. The spring of the mattress was weak.
