Great hotel would stay again.
Convenience. The wedding we attended was held in the gardens of the hotel. Lovely garden, great service. No robes in the room. View of the parking lot not particularly inspiring. Noise from the highway annoying. Food not great. Restaurant VERY noisy, food below average. If you are without a car, you are kind of stuck. Swimming pool very crowded, good job we had no intention using it.
Flew in early, check in scheduled for 3pm, but staff found me a room as early as 10am. Got to recoup from jet lag right away. Noisy cleaning staff woke me up with talking in the hallway and then vacuuming. But in their defense it was already 10am.
the pool...kind of No in room movie rental- was before-not now They charge $20 for you to park your own car outside with no valet or security in a motel environment ...seems a little ridiculous. They didn't used to-now they do Took us 20 minutes for room service to pick up multiple calls...apparently it's one guy and a cook? Overall just not as relaxing as it used to be...and the "small print" and hidden fees like parking your own car for $20 is just ridiculous...I would have spent that and then some in room service and movie rentals if they were only available We used to love this hotel...now we don't. Don't waste your time.
Location was good, ideal for an inexpensive place Fixtures were old but serviceable
The location was great! It was neat, clean, and overall a great deal. The bath towels were very small which made for toweling off after a shower interesting.
Great location in the Valley (close to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Beverly Hills, shopping, great restaurants etc.) that tourists don't often realize. Good value for money, helpful staff, clean rooms. Also very close to public transportation, which in LA is much better than many people expect. Would definitely stay in this hotel again and will recommend it to friends.
The staff here very helpful, room clean, large and a very comfortable bed. No night noise, slept very well. Breakfast was good. No complaints... Good Hotel.
Clean little retro motel in a hip neighborhood. We were only there for a day but there were enough shops and restaurants to entertain us within walking distance while we waited for friends to pick us up and continue on our vacation. Tiny room for two beds but it was fine for a short stay and everything was updated. Staff was helpful allowing us a pretty late checkout for a small fee... Good parking the tiny room size was a bit tight but as we occasionally enjoy experiencing these 'original' properties it was a non- issue... Towels could have been of better quality
Room was clean, direct tv with all the channels, close to places to eat. Outside area wasn't the best, next to a motel 6, breakfast area too small.
