Don't Stay here with reading my comments!

Wifi, free computers, Lobby.
Once I told my relatives were I was staying, an immediate response to change hotels was given. A girl was found dead there in 2013 and the area is suspect with transients. Also the Hotel is using two names!! Stay on the Main is the same place which was really confusing at the check in. The rooms are really old and if was very noisy at night due to the street activity of police sirens all night. Plus the building is also rumored to be haunted. Therefore, unless you don't mind any of that stuff, then it's not so bad. I would suggest to stay there in the warmer months. Also there is no free parking and all places near charge over $18.00 to park your car all night.

Good budget option

Good free breakfast, close to public transport, free computers and Internet
Good for the price and good free breakfast. Not the best area but close to public transport. Room fine- basic but clean. We had a private toilet but shared showers. Free computers and Internet in lobby. Wifi did not work in room. Staff wouldn't leave you with any particular positive memories, clearly had no desire to be there. Overall, get what you pay for and fine but it is in the centre of downtown so area is not great.

breakfast was not continental

Have to go to lobby to use wifi. Continental breakfast was waffles, cereal, juice and coffee. And you have to wait in line for it. Area was a bit rough at night.

Horrible. Never going back.

Nothing was good.
Horrible. the staff was rude and denied my stay due to the fact that they couldn't give me my room over a fifty dollar security deposit. I had to stay in my car in DT. LA. the girl at the desk was rude to the max and I will be sure to tell everyone how horrible they are as a company and staff.

Good location for nightlife

Close to supermarket, nightclubs, restaurants, and public transportations
I stayed for four nights during my trip in LA. The hotel is located in historic area, downtown. Many homeless people in the street but never hurt me. Easy to access to transportations, either Pershing Sq. Station or Metro Center Station. Many good restaurants, vibrant nightclubs and bars are surrounded. The room is a little bit too small, and the breakfast is only consist of waffles, cerial, milk, and coffee. Poor wifi speed, almost not available in the higher floor rooms relatively far from the lobby. Despite all the things above, I recommend this hotel's good value for money.

I wasn't too bad

near to public transport
It was OK, just the hotel has no aircond/heater, small room, the setting for the room was ok, no coffee maker or kettle. Just like 1 star hotel at Malaysia.

Not worth the stay

The staff.
I was embarassed when my girlfriend walk in the room. This is the kind of hotel you would expect out of a 1-star hotel in central or south america.
