      Friendly staff

      The room that they gave us for the first night was smelling awfull, we would not have stayed even one night unless they had changed our room the second day. New room was better at least it did not have a odour like the ex one. The following night there happened a big fight between a couple staying next to our room, we could not even sleep and nobody from the management had no attempt to stop that. Lastly there must have been bugs somewhere in the bed because pimples occured all over body and we could not stop scratching ourselves.Definitely I would not recommend this hotel. We had to move to another hotel in Inglewood to get recovered.

      My son and I drove about 6-7 hours for a game at the Rose Bowl. We just needed a place to stay for one night. The motel staff was friendly (they gave us free sodas upon our arrival) and they helped out with directions to the Rose Bowl. The voucher for breakfast at a place (Cindy's Restaurant - I think) across the street was a nice touch. For our needs, the Rose Bowl Motel was fine.

      The breakfast voucher should have had the value listed on it (there was a place for it, but nothing was written in the space). The parking was a little tight, but not much could be done about that given the amount of available space. There was no ice machine. The unit was small, but we were only staying for one night so it suited our needs.

      The owner and staff were very pleasant and friendly, we felt very welcomed Our room was comfy and clean Plenty of parking Really nice location with plenty of places within walking distance to eat Most motels do not offer breakfast, but here we could get a drink and a packaged pastry which is great when you're starving and haven't got showered and dressed yet We liked Cindy's Cafe for breakfast and Original Tommy's for luscious chili burgers! I would definitely stay here again

      The only thing I would say is the carpet could do with a wash. Everything else was spotless

      the parking is just in front of my room like 3 steps at my doorway...

      they said online that they have dvd player but my room doesnt have, the staff said its broken and if i want one i can transfer to other room but i refuse because the other room has no bathtub, shower only.. location is farther from hollywood than I expected. no amenities, its so small of the area and few units...compact... rooms i believe less than five if im not mistaken, but i didnt really count the rooms so maybe more than that or less but very compact compound, to me..

      I was very happy with the room and property. The staff was very pleasant and the property and room were very clean. There was a microwave and small room refrigerator in my room. The price was about $15.00 more than what I've been paying for other discount hotels in the general vicinity but -- I was more pleased with this one in cleanliness and service. A very small continental breakfast was included too -- coffee, pastries, cereal.

      No space to hang clothing and no clock in the room. I never use the closet space in any motel really, so at least in my room, the closet was blocked off and a microwave and room refridgerator fills the space.

      Location was convenient, parking free, had refrigerator and microwave in room.

      Shower leaked unless nozzle pointed away from door. Shower temperature only reached "warm". No closet, just hooks on door.

      terrible smell in the room, bathroom not clean, towels seemed clean but with stains, very poor quality in general (toilet paper and soap were awful) breakfast almost inexistant.

      The staff was polite.

      The room was dirty and not cleaned. The wind blowing out of air- conditioning had smells. I changed to another hotel with similar prices using and the room was much better.

      Although a budget motel, the owners and staff have kept the place in good condition and clean and ensured my partner and I had what we needed and enjoyed our stay.

      The rooms are dated.
