Staff unhelpful, lipstick on a pig

The location is a block from skid row, it's la. Property has recently changed the hotel cecil name to be comoletely the stay, so I was given a room on the 13th floor with a real key, as opposed to a room on the lower floors that had key cards. Those are better in my opinion. Room wasn't cleaned to well, while checking the bed and sheets for bugs, saw hairs on mattress. No ice machines anywhere and after callin front desk, I was advised to come down and I could get some, but turns out you have to wait in line! So if people are checking in, you've got another long wait! So ask for ice at check in!

Cold shoulder

This place was unbelievable!!! It was like sleeping at dorm. The staff was rude, the room was cold and when asked if they could adjust the temp I was told that they don't adjust the temp they offered me an extra blanket. Homeless people tried several time to enter the building but thanks to the ninja turtle COPs the were kept out. The problem with the security is they also kepty son out. I thought the shared bathroom Would be ok, i thought wrong.... I had a Horrible STAY ON MAIN!!!

Stay on Main

The rooms have no heaters, there is no carpeting in the hallway so all doors and walking echos while you are sleeping, the bathrooms are shared and the floor where the shower was flooding, the parking is not included in the price of the hotel, $15 dollars additional, the window was broken and letting cold air in.

Ok

It's a hostel. The hall bathrooms and toilets are as clean as you'd expect. Not glamorous but good for a couple nights. Good location right downtown LA. Safe area.
