"I was pleased with the price, but it seemed like an undesirable neighborhood. Not a secure motel for a woman traveling alone. Good-sized, fairly clean room with a refrigerator. The AC was dusty. The bedsheets and the towels were discolored and rough. The parking lot wasn't secure. I wouldn't stay again.2015-03-25"
"Located in an office park area; no restaurants or stores within walking distance. The room was nice, and the hotel was well-maintained. The AC didn't work adequately cool the room; we were on the sunny side of the building and had to keep the curtains closed during the day. The staff was unable to fix the AC; they did offer us a room change. We had to pay for parking.2019-04-12"
"Located in older, downtown area not far from LAX; not the best area, but I felt safe enough - lots of restaurants and grocery stores nearby - good place for the price - I had pets with me, so I was put in a 1st-floor room near the lobby; didn't enjoy hearing people scream at the front desk clerk at 3 AM almost every night - room was fairly clean, but the carpet was so filthy it turned my socks and cats' paws black - had a kitchen with dishes, cookware, and utensils - the window faced a wall - housekeeper made the bed and replaced the towels, but never vacuumed or changed the bedding during my 14-night stay - staff was friendly and always greeted me - had an exercise room - laundry machines always seemed to be in use - small snack shop operated on the honor system - appreciated the free, gated parking.2012-10-01"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
