An overnight in L A and we needed somewhere close to Union Station. It is unpretentious as you might expect from downtown accommodation. No breakfast, but coffee and tea available at reception. Plenty of restaurants in this part of Chinatown.

Nice hotel, clean and tidy. Great location and friendly staff. The rooms are of the old-fashioned motel size, with gigantic beds and a bathroom you can have a party in. No this is not a Fancy-Schmanzy 7-star Hotel, but for the money, you could do a whole lot worse.

Wanted somewhere economical to stay, planned to spend most days out and about exploring. This was a beyond perfect location for that, 5 minute walk to transit station and one stop away from Union Station. What a fun neighborhood to stay in, we were there for the Chinese New Year's Parade - passed right in front of the hotel! Clean,... More

I looked high and low for a less expensive hotel that was not a Hotel 6, or the like. Royal Pagoda, in LA's Chinatown, really fit the bill. It is well located, near downtown. It is clean and quiet. Wonderful, helpful staff. They gave us a very early check-in, so that my parents could rest a bit before getting ready... More

Avoid this disgusting and extremely unprofessionally run motel. I booked this place for my husband and I because, at first glance, I saw a few good reviews on Trip Advisor and it was close to the stadium. I now sincerely wish I'd been a bit more thorough before I booked the room. The person at the front desk was extremely... More

Had this place only been about $79 a night, I wouldn't complain, but for the price (about $140 a night) it was a rip off. We were placed on the second floor, and there's no elevator. Not only did we have suitcases, we had camera equipment. Luckily for us, a nice young man in the lobby (another guest, not staff)... More
