Reading the reviews I was expecting this hotel to be the worst ever...but it wasn't bad at all. The location wasn't too far from the beach (Manhattan) and about 30 minutes from Hollywood. We got a free upgrade to the deluxe suite because the regular room we booked wasn't available. It was nice, pretty big, we had a comfy bed,...

Visited on a business trip & vacation in one. I had my parents (I'm 27, they're retired) along for the ride to make a vacation out of the trip after the business functions were over. We stayed in one decent and two very nice hotels in the LA metro area. This one didn't come anywhere close to decent, much less...

Can't rate the room because we didn't get a chance to see it. Front desk clerk gave our reservations away to other people because "they stay two nights, you only stay one. Sorry." Unbelivable. Fortunately we were able to get a room at Horizon Inn instead. They were friendly and the room was clean. Give them your money instead of...

The man at the front desk was very rude. He acted like we were a bother when asking to see the room before reserved it. We asked this because we were traveling with our young son. We just wanted to make sure that the rooms were clean and safe. He refused to show us a room.

I stayed in the worst room I've ever seen over the July 4th weekend. The price lured me in as it was extremely affordable. The online photos and description made me think it might be ok. I was sooooo terribly wrong. The parking stucture and elevator were scary but I had already reserved online so I kept going hoping things...

My husband and I stayed at this motel for the 2013 Memorial day weekend. This motel is for the type of people who just wants a place to shower and sleep and that's what my husband and I did. We only used the motel to sleep because we had a lot of activity during the day. As for the motel...

Very nice family oriented staff. There is no microwave in the rooms and no coffee pot in the room which was a let down, there is one microwave in the lobby for everyone to share. Room had a smell and some writing on the wall but if your just passing through you could deal with it. Older motel, breakfast was...
