        No internet in my room, but otherwise excellent!”

        Location; Lobby; Decor

        I was unable to sustain an internet connection in my room. I gave up on the in-room internet after a couple of days. I don't know if the other rooms at Stay on Main are the same way with the internet. One of the staff at the front desk told me that the in-room internet connections were weak due to the building being constructed with brick. The lack of an in-room internet connection was extremely costly and frustrating for me. The lack of an in-room internet connection was terrible for me, but apart from that, I thought the hotel was excellent and I loved staying at Stay on Main. The hotel staff was friendly and great! I loved how the decor of the hotel blended the best of the old and the best of the new. This was most true of the lobby. The lobby retained the old-fashioned charm from the history of the building and blended it nicely with contemporary touches. The lobby had a very nice lounge, which included a fitness area and a theater room. I loved the atmosphere of the hotel, which I found to be a blend between a travelers' hostel and a city center hotel. The hotel had the energy and liveliness of a travelers' hostel while being more upscale than a travelers' hostel. I loved the location in downtown Los Angeles. I was surprised and delighted to find a hotel in downtown Los Angeles that was inexpensive and nice. Thank you, Stay on Main! Thank you, Agoda!

        Location, Amenities, Price

        I enjoyed my stay at Stay on Main Hotel. I was attending a concert in Los Angeles and Stay on Main Hotel was conveniently located to the venue as well as to local restaurants. Upon checking in to the hotel, I enjoyed the high ceiling architecture and was greeted warmly from staff. My room was clean and adequate with flat screen tv and personal sink (opted for shared shower/toilet for best pricing). The hotel has vending machines for cheap food as well as drinks. There are iMacs available as well as free wifi. In the morning a continental breakfast is available. Fitness equipment and game room is also available. If my stay was longer, I would have taken advantage of all the offerings Stay on Main Hotel has to offer.

        My stay at Stay was what I paid for.”

        I liked the breakfast, the cleanliness of the room and the decor as well as staff.

        My time spent at Stay was for only a night with my beau. We decided to book a private room w/ the bathroom for my birthday. We spent the majority of the time out of the hotel exploring and enjoying what Los Angeles has to offer. The bed was clean, the closet was as well, but the ironing board to iron my dress on was broken (annoying) but not a big deal. The room was cozy, just what I liked. I did not like however, the dirty linoleum floor. Be advised to wear flip flops as you move about because lord knows what you will be bringing into bed via your feet if you don't... that was the biggest flaw. Staff is friendly but I recommend that management makes sure their staff is not on the phone taling to friends while a customer is waiting in line. Also, I'm big on breakfast... this hotel/hostel serves waffles, which is dope.... they could use a little more flavor however *HINT HINT*. All in all my time spent here was not bad at all even if it was just for a short amount of time.

        Great location for an affordable hotel”

        Location, Price, Easy acces to public transportation

        To keep it short, the price and location for this hotel was awesome. However having shared bathroom facilities was a bit unpleasant. It wasn't that big of a deal but it's definitely not a plus. The thing that bothered me the most about this place was that the room had no air conditioner. It was summertime here in Los Angeles and the room was extremely hot. Had a difficult time sleeping. My wife complained about the noise due to the windows being open but hey, it's Downtown LA, it's going to be noisy.

        If u are on a budget this hotel is really good with free breakfast and coffee. Clean and sufficient to spend the night. Except city noise. Convenient store down the road. Fashion District and jewellery district nearby. Can't get better at this price downtown. Free wifi as well. Will revisit if I am on a budget. But don't go out at night as there are many homeless people in downtown and outside the hotel streets.

        Excellent value if you don't mind being asked for change a lot”

        This hostel is surprisingly good, considering what I'd expect for the price. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful, the rooms, for a hostel, are actually quite spacious, and the shared bathrooms and showers (they are single unit, so no awkwardness) are kept very clean. The location is within reasonable walking distance (or a cheap Uber/cab ride) to the Staples Centre, Convention Centre, etc. The only real downside to this place is that the location is in an area of town with quite a bit of homelessness, so you'll frequently be asked for change if walking around the area. If you head over to somewhere like Little Tokyo, Google Maps may tell you to first go down a couple of blocks southeast and then head northeast. I recommend doing the opposite, as just a couple of blocks away southeast is a very sketchy area, particularly at night. Staying along the main streets though, I felt pretty safe. In conclusion, if you're someone who gets sketched out really easily, don't stay here, otherwise, it's a superb value for money, particularly considering the location downtown, and is surprisingly high quality inside considering where it is.

        Safe Refuge in a Sketchy Neighborhood”

        Variety of room types; Proximity to Wendell's Bar; Free Breakfast Carbo-load

        Being familiar with LA's historic downtown core since my 1970's childhood, I have seen many changes over the years. The neighborhood is sketchy, for sure, but Stay on Main and other merchants are helping add some brightness to the neighborhood. I love the old clock in the center, the comfy couches in the TV/DVD lounge, and the firm but friendly nature of the staff. Drawbacks are only due to the location itself--that is the human riff-raff that make downtown LA the freakshow that I know and love. This is a must-stay for the adventurous, but a no-go for families looking for a safe environment. I plan to return for sure!

        Good enough”

        After reading so many negative reviews, we didn't expect much. But the hotel was good enough for us. It was mostly clean, and the staff was... well some members of the staff were a bit rude, but some were super helpful and accommodating. The location was very convenient to downtown LA and the subway system, etc, but also very loud, so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. I heard after check-in that the hotel is haunted, and since I was in no way harmed or molested by phantoms or ghosts, the haunted factor just upped the experience points of staying there. After having traveled through China and Thailand and staying in the cheapest hotels possible in this country, Stay on Main is easily on par or a step up from those, provided your standards aren't high. Bottom line: It's good enough.

        Close to Metro train stations and bus stops. Staff is friendly and helpful. Comfortable stay for low price.

        It's a budget hotel/hostel. I had private room with en suite bathroom. Not big, but it was as clean as a building that age can be. Close to Metro train stations and bus stops. The people inside were quiet and friendly, but the noise outside can be too much for some people. It's right on the edge of Skid Row, but I didn't experience anything annoying. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There's a Japanese restaurant next door with a really good lunch deal.

        Our stay was pleasant and convenient. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There were activities inside the hotel that were enjoyable such as the movie theatre and table tennis. The breakfast is a nice selection of different things. Definitely recommend this place for an affordable and easy stay in Downtown.

        Center of everything, close to airport, and convenient.

        It's not good if you're driving and have a car. Hotel rate is $49/night + parking fee for day and night equals to $65-$75/day. but besides that, if you're outgoing and aren't shy it's suitable for meeting new people since it's a social hotel since you'll be interacting with people on a daily basis.

        The hotel is a decent option if you have work in downtown LA or need a budget stay. The staff at the reception are very helpful courteous and smart as well (specifically TIM). The breakfast is just for namesake and the Mexican staff are rude and indifferent. Makes you feel like they are paying for our breakfast.
