Rug was filthy, just walking from the shower to the bed feet were black. One thin blanket on the bed, sink wouldn’t drain. Hot water in the shower was luke warm, day or night.

Worst Hotel Ever

Pros: Nothing at all. This is truly the worst hotel Ive ever stayed in.
Cons: The entire establishment needs to be rethought, including the management.
Location: It's in a bad neighborhood, surrounded by houses that have bars over windows and locked gates. It does not feel like a safe location.
Flight was delayed by 4 hours and since I didn't call the hotel to tell them I was going to be late they cancelled my reservation. They told me they tried to call and got my voice mail but refused to leave a message. This went down at 2AM! After standing on the corner for 10 mins at 2:15AM calling hotel after hotel the attendant came out an said he had a cancellation so I could now stay. Reluctantly, I agreed since I really had no other option. I entered the room and went to plug in my phone only to find an open condom wrapper behind the night stand. Needless to say I slept fully clothed in the room that stank of smoke. The sheet could have been made from plastic and it might have been more comfortable. The icing on the cake was showing up after they cleaned the room to find the condom wrapper still in the place I found it. Incredible. Ive stayed in $19 hotels on the East Coast that made this $125 a night place look like a campground. Vacationers or business people beware. This is a realtime, legitimate sh#$hole and the people that run it don't care.

It was ok

Pros: The room itself was cute with the hardwood floors
Cons: the parking and breakfast area could be improved greatly
The hotel itself was nice and the staff was nice but the access to the hotel and parking was absolutely horrible. I tried to go down to get breakfast and there was no room whatsoever to even walk down to look so even though breakfast came with the price of the room we could even get to the area to eat.

Close to Universal Studios

So I booked this last minute. I thought it was expensive, but thought "it is tourist season, LA, etc. " We wanted a hotel that wasn't too far from Universal Studios so we could get there early in the morning without the commute. The location was maybe 15 minutes away, which was great. We had 6 people there was a room with 3 queen beds, great. We got there, at tbe exit it was homeless row. Staff who checked us in was nice and professional. The room seemed fine. Looked clean, however, my kids took their socks and shoes off and the bottom of their feet turned black from the carpet. If you're in a bind it will do, but we wouldn't stay here again.
