A Days Inn disguised as a shaby boutique hotel

The outside of the hotel looks pretty good. Entering is a little weird as you have to go thru the parking deck or small door beside the deck and take elevator to 2nd floor looby. The were 2 guys at the front desk that I only dealt with slightly. They seemed very nice. The majority of the time I dealt with a lady who is basically punching a clock...nothing more nothing less. The halls are quite narrow and kind of dark. I didn't really mind this, but if I was a female staying alone that could be different. Also on that note pretty much anyone on the street could get on the elevator in the parking deck and go to any floor they want during the day and early evening. Otherwise the door is locked around 11pm and you have to call a phone number to get in. The room itself was decent but runned down. It badly needed a paint job and most of the furnishing outside of the bed & TV have seen their day. I do want to say that the bed was quite comfortable and the curtains blacked out the room nicely ( I was working nights). The bathroom is another story altogether. The toliet was loose (not bolted down very well) and there was misc "who knows what" all over the walls. A light burned out during my stay and I didn't bother letting the hotel know as I didn't really want to be able to see the bathroom walls any better than I needed too. The pool seemed to only get cleaned on Friday and it was quite cold as it only see's a couple of hours of direct sunlight a day. It was very hot weather wise while I was there to and that didn't seem to affect the pool temp. Prior to the Friday cleaning I only stuck my legs in. In the elevator you can see that the license is for The Days Inn. This is basically an apt complex that has been purchased and made to look like a boutique hotel. Outside looks good...inside different story. I would not stay here again, but it did serve it's purpose as a very very basic place to sleep and hold my belongings.

Great for a Night in LA

Convenient location for downtown and Hollywood. The free parking is a huge plus for this part of town. The room was very clean and quiet. The bathroom was more spacious than I've seen in comparable hotels. The front staff couldn't have been more friendly. The only downside was no refrigerator in the room.

Relocating

The hotel is just as described. The shelter. The hotel was dirty. The room smelled like bleach and was a little box. I had my small kids with me and we didn't even bathe because of condition and nasty room. Seemed as if I was in a shelter for the homeless. Don't recommend hotel to anyone with family.

Helter Shelter

Decent and clean accommodations, no frills. Secure parking provided, which is very nice. Seems like a residential neighborhood, quiet. I stayed here for a night's stay during a conference in Hollywood, and it met my needs.

If you're tourist inc in Hollywood, the public parking at Highland Center is a great deal ($13 all day) and close to everything!

La Quinta at LAX

There were a lot of nice extras with this hotel - a washer and dryer on our floor along with vending machines. The breakfast buffet was great. The rooms were clean. Be aware that the hotel does charge you to park your car in their parking lot and the spaces are close. It could have been tough if we rented more than a compact car.
