Half way between downtown and the beach and close to all the dining in K-town this clean basic motel is a great place to stay to explore LA. We booked 4 nights with Vic and had a quiet upstairs room as promised and there was ample free parking. Good value for Los Angeles.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved it. We found it to be spotless, very safe, big room, and well lit. There is free parking and we got a nice big king bed and first floor room, so I could see the car in front of me. Yet some how, the rooms feel soundproof. There were plenty of clean towels, amazing espresso coffee and fresh nestle juices. The owner is a pleasure and very kind, he is genuinely concerned for you and wants you to enjoy it. I myself am a hotel host for short term rentals so I really do appreciate him and the place he has created for his guests. Thank you, I will definitely recommend to my family and friends who come to LA. Best of luck, Magali Sofia

Me and my partner stayed at the motel for 4 nights and was good. The place is nice, clean and comfortable; there is a big bad where to rest after a long day around LA. From our bedroom we could see the “Hollywood Sign”. A plus is the owner, he is very helpful with planning your day and he can give you some tips to get the best from LA.

We stayed in LA for just 3 nights but we were delighted with our choice of the Friendship Motor Inn and our experience with the manager (unfortunately I did not get his name). My 4 star rating is directly attributed to his great customer service as I believe customer service is fundamental in any hotel, or business experience for that matter. The manager made check in simple and was always happy to give us information on LA, tell us stories, and generally help out. He seemed to work 247, he'd be at breakfast in the morning (breakfast was fairly good, not a great selection but enough to keep you going) and we'd then even see him doing laundry in the late evening! Other than the customer service, the room was nice, we were on the second floor, we didn't drive but there appeared to be plenty of parking. The heater was good and we had a microwave and fridge amongst a comfortable bed and other good amenities including good TV channels. It is situated in an okay part of LA, and the transport to and from the motel via the Metro was good enough (there are some stops nearby). Unfortunately, there aren't many grocery stores in the vicinity, and the nearest fast food chains are about a 10+ minute walk away. Housekeeping was good and overall we enjoyed our stay. The only issue was probably the location, but if you have a car then I don't see anything wrong with this place!

Very clean, even though the hotel is slightly older I felt it was very clean which is more important! So quiet too, couldn't hear any neighbours or anything! Perfect for a light sleeper. Hotel staff were also very friendly
