The front desk clerk was unprofessional and made us extremely uncomfortable. He went on a long tangent about some historical show he was watching, holding our room key hostage while we were trying to check in at night. We tried to politely end the conversation multiple times unsuccessfully. The opening to this tangent was repeatedly telling us about how Saint Nicholas "slapped a h-" and "slapped a b-tch." I couldn't believe he was using that kind of language with us. I curse plenty in my everyday life, but using that type of derogatory language with customers is unacceptable. Then we finally get to the room, and it's not clean. There was gunk on one of the towels, a red substance that looked like perhaps blood?? smeared in the bathroom on the wall and the door handle. We tried to clean it off, and some of it did come off on just a wet towel, so clearly nobody had even tried to clean the most obvious of filth, so the rest of the room was probably even dirtier. The bed only had two small strange square pillows, the room smelled bad like it had been smoked in, and there wasn't a chain lock on the door, so we felt unsafe from the bad vibes during our first interaction checking in. We decided to leave and just go somewhere else. The same clerk guessed (correctly) which room number it was when we told him about the red stuff, and he just looked dismissive and said "that's not blood." So clearly they knew it was there and didn't bother cleaning it. Disgusting.

The area is slightly seedy but the hotel was quiet - 2 night stay. Rug was stained and a repair in teh bathtub was poorly grouted, but otherwise fine. Breakfast was satisfactory ... nothing hot except a waffle that had to be made by staff. Could have had some donuts, bagels, etc. Price was good compared to other places in the area. Hotel is open to potential street people but was oky when I was there.

I stayed here on New Year's Eve. The bed was very comfortable (better than the other 2 hotels I stayed in before and after on the same trip) The free breakfast was really good. Hot waffles with fresh fruit. I stayed at a different motel the following night for $60 more and wished that I was back at the Knights Inn. Cons: sketchy people hanging around in front of the hotel, and in front of the liquor store directly across the street, staff at breakfast seemed to be in a bad mood, breakfast was served in styrofoam and plastic.

A little gem tucked away just outside of downtown. Great value and nice rooms. They even have free parking! The staff was friend and the little breakfast nook was adorable. If you need a place quick and easy to stay at this is great.

We had to find somewhere to stay at short notice after our original accommodation turned out to be terrible. This place was a welcome change, with nice rooms, a good shower and air conditioning and most of all, kind and helpful staff. The breakfast was a bit basic but that's fine -this is a good, decent place staffed by friendly people. The local area was also cool, the people are nice and there is a great bakery across the road.

In town for a Dodgers game, I booked the Knights Inn because of its low price and proximity to the stadium and downtown. The room was clean and comfortable, if not a little shabby and noisy due to the adjacent freeway. Nevertheless, I got a good Knight’s sleep in a soft and comfy bed. All staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The “free” breakfast included fruit, cereal, bread and waffles, and did the job it needed to without much frill. I was not expecting the Ritz and didn’t get it, but overall I was happy, and would stay again if on my own.

Doesn't look great from the road, but good value for money close to DTLA. Excellent front desk staff. Very friendly and helpful. Easy free parking. Large room with two large double beds, seperate area with sofa, desk and chair. Fridge, coffee and drawers. I had a room overlooking the road (not the interstate behind). Couldn't hear the interstate, but there was a little road noise. Room and bathroom all clean and tidy. Very good wifi. Large flat panel TV with Netflix (I used own login). A great location. Old style aircon unit. For the price, very good value for money and a great location. Bakery opposite very good for food and drinks at all hours.
