Grammys Weekend

It was not very nice, the lobby is a tease and the rooms are small! If you're only using it for one night to sleep and change really quick then it's okay. Not for a vacation!

Great Spot

Everything was exactly enough for what we needed. Keep in mind you get what you pay for so don't expect a spacious 5 star hotel but they definetly make best of what is available. Great location near everything you could think of and the staff tended to all of our needs in a very timely manner. Would love to come back.

easy acess

The room was a little tiny but it was clean and cute. We hated that it didn't have a bathroom in our room so it was very inconvenience to take shower and use the toilet.

Located in Downtown LA, Right-Off Skid Row

I selected Stay On Main Hotel for its location in Downtown. However, I discovered that this hotel is right next to Skid Row. The number HOMELESS living right out on the street in Los Angeles is tragic! This hotel, unfortunately, brought me in constant contact with dangerous street people.

I'd return again :)

Hotel is nice nothing like the photos, but its still nice. Took about 40 mins to check in to hotel only one employee was working no bueno. My room was on the 8th floor small and cute, the bathroom was the tiniest especially with the shower squeezed in there but still manageable. Very thin walls literally heard everything from both sides what people were talking about. Didn't like it especially when sleeping. Check out was a lil sad thought it was at 2 but turned out it was noon basically got forced to check out or pay an extra day, i just left luckily they will hold your luggage for free if you still have places to check out. Hotel was still at great location loved waking up early and walking around the area beautiful places with great people and great things to buy. I would still return to this hotel definitely worth the price.

Had to open my mind

I had to wait to write this review. Initially I was shocked. If you travel & you like world experiences you should stay here once for nostalgias sake. the hotel is historic. If you are hoity toity & you like 4 star hotel. Don't eve think about it. I hated it the first day & loved it the second day when I viewed it with an open mind. It was different. I am a world traveler & I have stayed in caves & huts all around the world. I loved it because it was different & I love experiences. I just wasn't expecting it & that was the shocker. I wont stay again only because this is home. I like experiences like this when I visit Europe. I shared a bathroom in Italy & that was acceptable. Why cant I have that same tolerance in my own country? I found the homeless people around the corner depressing.

It was ok, but wouldn't do it again.

It was ok, looks like college dorm rooms. Shared shower and toilets. Our room had a private shower with toilet. Very small. Crowded, tiles are outdated and chipping. The room had wooden flooring, they were dirty. Sheets looked clean. Bed was comfy. Very noisy, police sirens all night. No ac unit. Hostel type hotel. Just stayed one night, would not stay longer. Ok for sleep. Good thing was free breakfast from 7:30-10 am. Cereal, oatmeal, waffles, juice, water, coffee. Nothing fancy. None of the pictures online looked like the place itself, it was very old, rundown out dated. Crowded downtown, people were trying to sell us drugs. DISSAPOINTING. Definitely wouldn't take kids there.

Place to stay before interview

I had a interview at USC so I decided to save my money and stay at a cheaper hotel. Stay on Main hotel is located at a good location and staffs are nice, they also included a free breakfast. However, the down sides are that I was waken few times a night due to the noise from the street and you have to share the bathroom. You get what you pay for.

WORST PLACE!!

So we booked this place like a month before hand we got there tired after our flight in the hope of getting some rest when we got there to our big surprise they told us that our room wast ready so we were like ok we are going to wait a few minutes but we ended up waiting 3 hours for our room to be ready . This Hotel was the worse place i had ever been to the service was bad they are rude and the room was ugly and it stink like a dirty diaper and it didn't have a shower, a toilet nor a closet to put our clothes and luggage and i was really small with one chair. the carpet was humid wet and in a really bad condition. This is the wort place!! with bad service!!

Business trip

First impression was quite nice:lovely interior,friendly staff.I had a standart room with a queen bad and I liked it,except few things:1) the wi fi is terribly slow(!!!)-even slower than my metroPCS mobile internet 2) television quality is quite poor.Other thing I want to mention is some kind of antisanitary at showers and WC(people leave garbage,that nobody take away until next morning).Saying about good things,I can notice the bed(it was quite cool,nice to sleep),there is a complimentary breakfast every morning from 7:30 to 10,where you can have nice waffels)My overwiew aprpraisal will be 3 from 5
