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.

Avoid if possible

If you are going to stay here, do not expect much. The room felt like absolute trash and it was an uncomfortable stay. You have to pay for parking. It is located in the downtown area. The room was hardwood, there was no air conditioning and the bathroom was disgusting. Holes in the wall, dirty toilet, dirty shower, smelled bad. I didn't even want to lay down in the bed, but I had no choice. If you can avoid this place, I would say that is a smart choice.

Great location. Budget friendly

Had a private bathroom and queen bed. The bed wasnt very comfortable and the bathroom was very simple- yet clean. Valet parking was obviously extra- 15$. A decent option considering it was a last minute booking and compared to 250$+ options close by. Would stay again if had to.

The room was clean, comfortable, and efficient. Several electric outlets did not work. Great free breakfast, and ambiance in mezzanine! I would recommend this hotel. Great location and good price!

Inexpensive Place to Stay

This was all in all a pretty good experience. Even smaller than I imagined but all I really needed was a place to sleep. The room was clean except for leftover wood floor cleaner that didn't get wiped up. Breakfast was good and very basic. Waffles, coffee, juice, and cereal. Would definitely recommend it to friends.

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.
