This is an older property, but it's maintained ok. It's main feature is being a block from USC. Parking included - right in front of your room. Lots of nearby college food. Breakfast included with good coffee. Workers helpful. Lots of neat things nearby beyond USC including the Space Shuttle, Science Center and the Rose Garden. Pool.

By far the most reasonably priced lodging in the area, but it comes at a cost: noise and traffic. If you can sleep through the sounds of the city, this is an ideal spot for easy access to USC, California Science Center, etc. The rooms are clean and spacious, staff are helpful, and wifi and parking are free.

This hotel has to survive by location alone. The rooms are dated, at best. The room I stayed in (#129) smelled of mildew and what might be urine (particularly noticable by the wall a/c unit). The carpet next to the bed was wet enough (definitely water) to soak through my socks, which would explain the mildew smell. The hotel has...

I book this motel because it is near to USC campus when I am visiting my daughter. There is a simple continental breakfast (which could use some added protein items) but it does start your day. You can easily walk to campus. Also you can drive downtown or take the train. Overall convenient location.

We stayed one night for a Cheer competition at the Convention Center and overall the experience was ok. The Lady from the front office was nice and the rooms were very clean but I must say, this hotel needs some TLC...I hope they considered some renovations specially the carpet because is all stained in both rooms I got. The location...

Clean Motel room near USC at a good price for L.A. Lots of restaurants and a CVS and FedEx office nearby. Vagrants wandered around even on the second floor but there seemed to be security on the lot. Room was small and old but clean. Good if you are not staying in the room for long. Price was key. Had...

On a west coast college tour and this hotel had comfortable beds and walking distance to USC. (2 blocks) We saved parking costs by leaving the car in the hotel parking lot. I'm a princess when it comes to beds and even brought along a mattress pad. Didn't need it here. Good price but a little rough around the edges....

Front desk staff very friendly. Maintenance was very helpful. Housekeeping was so so had a issue with our room was taken care of satisfactory. Felt like I was mislead by housekeeping supervisor/manager. But general manager stood behind her word. I would stay here again.

There are several Eateries within Walking Distance to choose from, and only a block away from the Expo Shrine which was our primary spot and where our show was. Prices are considered decent for this college town location. Should I need to return, I would stay again.
