I can see why a place like this would get bad reviews. It is a motel style facility just off the highway, but it is far enough away that it isn't overly loud. A lot of shady characters that are in this area though. Three stars because it is exactly that, AVERAGE. When I travel, especially if I'm by myself, I don't particularly care what the hotel is like because I don't spent most of my time there. It didn't smell like anything offensive, it looks like they tried to keep it clean but a few things were broken in the room. But it does look like they try to upkeep it. No issues with bed bugs or otherwise. There isn't any free WiFi though, so bring along an air card if you are so attached to internet. Otherwise, it is on the low end of prices for hotels, ESPECIALLY for the LA area. If you want to be pampered in 5-star luxury, you can find hotels for $700 a night. If you want a hotel that's just convenient, cheapest in the area and is decent, this is a good place.
