I spent 6 weeks in California and in that period of time I used a variety of hotels and motels. The room was spacious, clean and the facilities were great for the cost. The one thing that stood out was the positive attitude of the staff, their customer service was more like that of a much higher rated hotel. I...

I stayed in a one bedroom hotel room overnight. The area isn't the greatest, the view was honestly ugly but the room itself was very clean. Only downside was that the lighting was so dim and none of the lights in the room were bright expect for the one in the toilet room. Personally I think the price is way...

I booked this hotel for only one night because I needed to visit the Chinese consulate nearby early the next morning. I was sorely disappointed with the service at this hotel, I would give it nearly the lowest rating for service that I have encountered. Upon arrival I was met with an older Indian gentleman that was neither personable nor...

After a long flight from Tonga via Fiji to LA we arrived at this excuse for a hotel/motel and from the moment we got there the guy on reception was the one of the rudest people I've ever laid eyes on. We told him we had a booking to which he replied, "I tried your card and it was declined...

The whole hotel smells cigarettes. Even in a smoking free room. I had to switch rooms because of a too much cigarette smell in one of them. Sleep is good and quiet. Good shower. Breakfast is not really breakfast: bad coffee and WAFFLES WITH HONEY. Yes, that's it: Waffles and honey, forever and only. Ok for one day, but after...

We stayed here one night as a stop over. It was close enough to see the city sights of Hollywood but wasn't particularly the nicest area to stay. The room was all we needed, bed, shower and big tv and the waffles for breakfast were a nice surprise!! Oh and theres a really nice pool and plenty of parking!

The lack of amenities, nonexistent 'breakfast' supplied as well as the cigarette burns in the linen weren't the worst of our experience. All of these things can be forgiven, it was the staff that were the problem. So rude and treated us like a problem they had to deal with from the beginning. Refused to help in regards to any...

The hotel is fairly clean. That's the only positive thing I find. Breakfast is poor (only cereal, pancakes and a terrible coffee), two days the milk was off and there was no coffee in the coffee machine... it gave us only water! We tried to wash some clothes and the laundry room wasn't working. The heater in the room is...

The hotel is the typical american style, however the room is spacious and clean as well as the bathroom. Lacks some amenities such as tea/coffee facilities in the room. A couple of extra towels would have come in handy too. Breakfast is included in the price: cereals and waffles with coffee and juice. The staff at reception was friendly and...
