Solo female traveler

This was a great value for the money but very basic. Minimal furniture. No irons in the room (but the front desk will bring you one if you request it). While located a bit outside the 'touristy' area, the neighborhood felt very safe to walk around at night and had easy public transportation access.

Love this hotel!

I always stay here when in LA. It is a great location near the subway and buses if you dont have a car. I like the rooms and the people there are nice. I like that it is in a residential neighborhood and not touristy. Lots of food options nearby and centrally located in LA.

A dive

This hotel is nasty. The common rooms and hallways are dirty, dingy and cheap feeling. I used the computer in the lobby to print something and it looked as if someone had been sanding sheetrock in the room, there was so much dust on it. I'm not exaggerating, it was nasty. The place smelled seedy and the hallways were dark, the carpeting dirty and worn and it just felt like a place you could rent by the hour. My room was OK, but there was NOTHING on the walls. There was a crummy desk, a chair, some weird bookcase thing that looked like someone had made it in shop class and an armoire that looked like it was purchased from Ikea three years ago. The bed was ok, but the floor was dirty and i found a bunch of someone else's hair on the bathroom floor. The climate control in the room consisted of a worn-out AC window unit built into the wall. This place was so bad I checked out after one night. The desk staff at the hotel were actually really nice and professional.

Good Price

Looks like the hotel is in the process of upgrading. There weren't any "hotel amenities". But price wise for California was great and right in Korea town, close to restaurants.
