Worst Place ever!

My friend and I stayed for 2 nights. First time in LA and we wanted to go cheap. BAD idea! It was so loud, I didnt get any sleep, I had a hug roach crawl on my arm at night. It smelled like fried chicken the first night and the second night like chinese food! How ever the bed was comfortable and the employees were nice. I will never recommend this hotel/hostel. LA is okay, I probably will not go back. Driving everywhere sucked. The trip was fun because I was with the right person.

Stay at main gives just a bit more then u pay for

The stay on main is a decent hotel. There are shared bathrooms and showers which is pretty weird. There is no parking and the breakfast is ok at best. However, the staff is friendly, there is a theatre and ping pong table, etc.

OVERNIGHT STAY

First of all they didn't have free parking and its IMPOSSIBLE to find parking in this area. Your forced to pay for the parking. Then once you check in the charged to a additional $50 at the counter before you get a room key. I was told once I checked out the fee will be returned to my card. This place is more like a college DORM!

Suprisingly Pleasant

When making the reservation I didn't know what to expect. For the price we paid, the hotel was an excellent value, considering its location right in downtown Los Angeles. The staff was really nice and helpful. As for the room, small and cozy with all the amenities we needed (towels, toiletries, wifi).

Very bad hospitality

I had the worst experience at this hotel. I even checked out a day earlier becuase of the bad experience and the bad customer service. Once you walk into the hotel it looks all nice, but the moment you head to the room it smells disgusting, shared bathrooms are gross, the size of the room is way too small and ugly. I do not recommend this hotel for anybody not even for a single day.

Tiki quest

A shared bathroom/shower (in hallway) type of room, with minimal furnishings. But adequate for our needs (not in LA to hang in the room). Shared separate showers and bathrooms were kept clean, as was the room. Hotel provided a surprisingly nice complementary breakfast (typical cold stuff with hot fresh waffles). Great downtown location that was excellent for doing the monthly Thursday Art Walk and for getting on freeways.
