    Do not stay here- Unsanitary Conditions

    If I could give this property zero stars, I would. As soon as you step foot into the hotel you are immediately overcome with an overwhelming scent of mold and trash. Upon check in, an older man said the receptionist was out and he would call her. He went on to explain that the person who cleans the rooms called out sick because the previous night was his birthday and now all of the rooms were not clean. He called the receptionist and she said there was an identical room to the one we booked on the second floor and he would show it to us. They did not check our ID, ask for a credit card or have us sign any paperwork. He handed us our keys and we were on our way. Immediately, I noticed there were no pillow cases on the pillows and one had a baseball size blood stain. We pulled the sheets off the bed and found the mattress was stained in multiple areas and there were bugs within the sheets. The flat sheet on the top of the bed also had an odd stain, probably blood. We decided to go down to the reception and ask for a room change but no one was there. We called the "Emergency number" on the door and no one answered. We decided to leave the hotel that night and have called multiple times to request our refund but the phone number only takes you to a voicemail and no one returns your call.

    Exceeded my expectations!

    We stayed one night to be close to the airport for our early morning flight, less than a 5 min drive to the airport. Our private room/bathroom was very clean and spacious! We never heard a peep from our neighbors. Honestly, I was a little hesitant when booking, but my expectations were blown away! Would definitely stay again! Also being in Little Italy, there's lots of yummy restaurants within 5-10 min walk.

    Turn around, go back and do not book here

    DO NOT BOOK!!! I had my 10 year old with me. Worst experience ever we stayed in that room about 20 minutes and we gathered our belongings and left. It’s is so creepy and eerie and a chiiling feeling. It is not as described on the website it is a dumpy motel. There’s no Customer Service at all whatsoever as if it is abandoned. When I arrive, the hotel lobby was locked nobody could get in there was no Customer Service there was people waiting outside. Try to check if there was a delivery guy outside trying to get in to deliver so it was a small crowd of people outside. It was weird. The guy finally came, and he looked high. I just handed me a key ask me for no information. The hotel lobby when we got smelled like straight up weed. It’s a very uncomfortable, feeling uncomfortable atmosphere. The furniture is dirty old and stained. It looks like it came out of somebody’s grandma’s grandma’s grandma’s garage. Nobody answers the phone. Everything is old and rundown and looks nothing like the pictures. And who knows what they’re doing in there because that feeling is so beyond spooky. You couldn’t pay me to stay there. I took my daughter and left.

    Not worth it

    The location is convenient but the hotel is very neglected. The pictures shown online are completely the opposite to reality. The room was not clean, the blinds were broken, there weren't blankets, there wasn't even soap in the bathroom. Even though we gave an advanced notice about us checking in past 9pm, we struggled to contact the concierge by telephone or text message to enter our room. I have no doubt that the place was gorgeous in its glory days, but nowadays the builing is old, everything crooks, strange people comes in and out and is poorly cleaned. It was a shame to enter our room and see it in this conditions. Even if you are looking for a place to crash at night, it is a risky option.

    Noisy and dirty area.

    Old building, smells bad, and room was dirty. Area is surrounded by homeless and trash. Noisy at night due to traffic from freeway which is across the street. Missing some room ammenities. Not worth it, you get what you pay for. Not recommended.
