The television didn't work. Called the lobby, they told me to go out for the evening. It was 1 am I had just gotten back from a festival. Also was told I would get a discount on the room for the television not working. I was charged the full rate.

Needed a place to stay after a late night at the Shrine Auditorium, just around the corner. $139+ is high for a motel room, but our double was clean and quite large. Ask for rooms 233-239 which overlook the pool or you'll get a view of the dreary parking lot. Because USC is next door, there are two dozen budget...

We've stayed here since our daughter went to USC 10 years ago. This location is a 5 minute walk to campus and a 30 minute walk to the Coluseum. The property is really run down: stained carpets, wall paper peeling. Towels are thin. The mattresses are very nice. The prices have really jumped in the last year. We paid $235/night...

The location is great, and the employees I've encountered give good customer service. The rooms have wall air, mediocre cable feeds, and are dated. We will stay again, due to the proximity and hospitable staff, but definitely not for amenities and decor.

Clean, safe, so close to USC--friendly and like a family. Glam it is not, but authentic retro.On fact, it has not changed much since built, by design likely in the 1960's This is by far the best area option.

Checkin was fast and painless. Received a 2nd flr room in the building behind the pool, and it actually faces away from the property. It was strange, as most of the rooms close to the checkin desk (which I had requested on reservation) showed no cars or people. The room was just beat down. Furniture that looks like you would...
