Ok only for a night or two

This hotel was fine, especially if you are looking for cheap accommodations downtown. But, the amenities are sparse and room are stiflingly hot without AC. Staff not overly friendly either.

If you need a place to stay downtown...

... this place works okay, but it's really not a very comfortable place to stay. Bathrooms are shared with the hall, uncomfortable, and kind of gross. The room was warm and loud, hokey, and not very comfortable. They first tried to give me a room that was already occupied. Location is okay, and it's certainly cheap, but I'm still not sure it was worth it.

hot small rooms

the room had no air conditioning and it was really small. you have to walk down the hall to use the shower and toilet. they didn't clean our room when we put the door hanger to clean the room, on the door. other than that the location was ok considering it was down town. the valet was good considering there wasn't any free parking or street parking but the valet guys were really nice.

False Advertising

The pictures that they posted online are parts of the hotel that are not even finished and the room pictures are not actual pictures of the rooms your staying in. This place is very hot with no a/c anywhere and there is no parking. The rooms are super small and there are no flat screen TV s as advertised.

wonderful location

My experience here was amazing. The location is within walking distance of the train, the clothing alleys (cheap stuff!!), multiple banks, and pershing square, in the opposite direction it's also close to LA live. I didn't so much care for the shared bathroom, they also don't have air conditioning. But it's a wonderful place with nice staff, great free continental breakfast (waffles!!!), a gym, theatre, computers, and free WiFi.

You get what you pay for

This hotel is exactly as it describes itself and you get what you pay for. We needed to stay in LA on the cheap and Stay on Main allowed me to do so in a pretty decent place. The rooms were small but nice. There's hip resturants staring to pop up in the area. Free wifi is great, as are the other hotel offerings (cable, free breakfast, computers in the lobby). My only gripe was he bathrooms, pretty small and I wasn't comfortable sharing with the floor but I knew that was a part of the deal when I decided to stay here. Overall it's a nice budget place to stay but you get what you're paying for. If your looking for luxury or have kids with you this isn't the place.

An unexpected night in an la hostel

Well 1st of all didn't realize it was hostel style with shared bathrooms.... That was a lil uncomfortable. Would've preferred a dinky dink hotel with my own bathroom than an Amsterdam style situation in downtown la. Plus no smoking.& they will charge if you do.
