I booked here for 3 rooms as I was hosting several people in LA and this place had good reviews/wasn't too expensive. I did not have high expectations, just your average motel experience. While I suppose it was better then what it could have been (didn't see any roaches lmao) our towels were dirty/stained in two of the rooms, carpets were stained, and they tried to tell one of our guests they didn't have the room until I came down and showed proof of our confirmation number. Some guy went to sit in the parking lot to play YG's "Go Loko" off an entire boombox at 11pm until at least 2am, not positive when that ended cause I fell asleep and there was no parking the 2nd or 3rd night we were there even though each room is given one spot. Overall the place is doable if you're used to ratchet s*** and you just need to crash but I'm pretty easy going and the whole experience was disappointing and lightweight frustrating. I will say though that because we were all adults it gave us one hell of a weekend and a lot of laughs at how ridiculous and weird our stay was. We watched two men run out of their room in they underwear laughing. I'm not one to leave negative reviews ever but dam what a weekend lol all I'm saying, proceed with caution.
