VERY basic

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 22, 2007

Back in August 2005 i was in Los Angeles for the first time and as i didnt have lots of money to spend i settled on this place for 3 nights before moving to a hotel in Anaheim for 3 nights. From first impression of the lobby the only way to describe it is to say the whole place has a "Faded 1980's....almost dusty look to it"

Whilst the girl who checked me in was very pleasant and checked me in straight away as i'd just flown direct from Australia and was very tired! The room was a bit of a let down. First of all it wasn't much bigger then a closet and from memory was on the 2nd floor. The bed had ink stains all over it (At least i hope it was ink) but i was too tired to go down and argue and the sheets underneath the bedspread looked clean so i settled. The Tv was ancient and didnt even have a remote! I think i only had about 12 channels. The bathroom was small but had your usual shower and shampoo bottles. My room had a fantastic view of a brick wall.

Later that morning i needed to get some headache tablets and walked out of the hotel only to find i was deep in the heart of the ghetto. The whole location felt really unsafe (And i'm a white male) and i did notice that a lot of the restaurants in the area including McDonalds closed at 5pm!!! Never a good sign! I ended up having to order in (Hotel can provide delivery places) except for one night when the Epicentre Restaurant was open (It's only open at selected times) Metro Station was located across the road and down to the right a bit. I was able to get to Hollywood etc through that. The hotel plug Ventura Tours for most day trips but they did forget to pick me up on one of the tours despite my confirmation no! I'd recommend people stay in Anaheim you can still do all the same tours from there and the Disney Area felt a LOT Safer

I wouldnt return to this hotel.
