the photos of the amenities are misleading, they're not part of the hotel, it's a simple, no frills accommodation I would rate as 2 stars as the price reflects

Good parking setup underground and at a reasonable price. Also nice that you need a key to get the elevator to go up to your room.

I like this hotel. Second stay there. Location is perfect for us to where we need to be. Staff is always polite and helpful. Rooms are clean, good shower with hot water for the whole thing, beds are okay and they do have a grab and go breakfast. There is underground parking but they do charge for it ($15 a day). You can enter the hotel right from parking so you don't have to go outside.. Only thing you need to consider is that it is very close to the hospital so you do get sirens sometimes during the night.

This is a kind of boutique style hotel located in a busy area. Parking was convenient, and the hotel was only minutes away from the beach by car. The room was clean, showers worked great, and the window coverings were quite pretty. When going down to the lobby in the morning a gentleman greeted us with coffees and handed us a paper bag with some breakfast items in it which was unexpected (muffin, granola bar, yogurt). Only minor complaint was quite a bit of noise outside starting before 7 am (not the fault of the hotel). LA wakes up early apparently!
