    • Older travelers

      Price is reasonable.

      The room cleaning service is not regular.

    • Single

      Secure, clean, good tv programs and comfortable.

      No bars of soap and no coffee maker in my room.

    • Single

      the room was clean and had a fridge and microwave. computer in the lobby was convenient.

      tv only had 6 channels. the owner was not polite or pleasant and had an attitude like he didn't want to answer any questions- poor customer service attitude.

    • Single

      Room was spacious, the bed comfortable and plenty of hot water.

      Well you get what you pay for...in this case a shabby budget hotel, my room cleaned once in a week, a sink hole full off years' worth of hair, crumbling paintwork outside, some dubious permanent residents who just stand outside smoking and glaring at you, 24hr porn free of charge (joking aside I'm glad I didnt travel with kids), a car park full of cars fit for the scrap heap, staff who barely spoke English - but seemed friendly enough - a very old tv and noisy fridge. Yes, this is a budget hotel and I didnt expect much, but to be honest I think for the money they could run a tighter ship and keep the place generally looking smarter. I'm no shrinking voilet but at times my spider sense told me one or two of the other residents would probably steal the shirt off your back given chance. Avoid - pay an extra $10 a night to stay in the many far more attractive motels within a short distance away.

    • Family with children

      The light had been left the light on for us as we came quite late.

      At night the check in area was closed and the person checking us in was behind a plastic shield. Made me wonder about how safe it was. Turned out to be fine.

    • Family with children

      Not really anything to like.

      Beds not made-had to make myself had to get clean towels myself-going back twice to the office advertised wifi did not work, no working smoke alams, had to move the refrigerator so I could plug it in.

    • Single

      This is a low cost hotel. Others a few doors down are at least twice as much. You get what you pay for, and if you don’t want to pay a lot and can tolerate Spartan surroundings this hotel is good for you. You get hard wired internet. The soap comes in packets, and there is plenty of hot water. (I’ve been to places where you would get nothing or little of those) I looked for bugs, and found none.

      The bathroom had obscure glass, but no curtain. There was a mcrowave in a comon area, but none i my room.

    • Couple

      Affordable and quite clean for the price arond la, nice clean bathroom

      Employees would not give us the room we've seen on booking claiming they did not have any available so we had to make a booking online to get the room we wanted right in front of the front desk from the phone. Once done, the room miracluously was available for the right price.

    • Older travelers

      The price was excellent. The room was clean, comfortable, roomy and well maintained.

      Not enough toilet paper in room. Had to go to main desk to request more.

    • Couple

      friedly staff, simple, cheap, just what you need for one or two night stay

    • Couple

      For a cheap motel it was good. From the hotel you can drive for 10 min and you are at Angeles forest

      The bed was awful ( too soft ) tv didn't work properly Shower wasn't so good

    • Older travelers

      The room was very clean and in very nice condition. I have stayed at other "budget" hotels and was a bit concerned with what I would find. I was pleasantly surprised.

    • Couple

      I was extremely shocked and amazed at how roomy and clean the room was. I thought it was extremely clean and up to date with the plugs and all around look of the room. It was very comfy and cozy in the room and there was no loud outside noises or anyone bothering us during our stay. I highly recommend it especially to people who are on a tight budget and need some where to stay in the city close to shopping areas and public transportation. i plan to stay there again and I plan to recommend to friends....

    • Single

      half way between huntington museum and LA county arboretum free web access in reception

      stairway to 2nd floor unit in disrepair, also the second floor landing in disreapair

    • Group of friends

      they rent by the hour -- do not change towels, make bed, emply waste basket daily we had to go to office daily to get fresh towels would definity not list this motel as one to stay at.
