Stayed here 2 nights and it was perfect. The hotel is located in the heart of Chinatown, and is easily walkable from Union Station. The surrounding neighborhood looks a little scruffy at first but it is quiet and feels perfectly safe. Check-in was a breeze; the lady working at the front desk acknowledged our room request and also gave us...

Downtown LA is pretty creepy, especially at night. Surprisingly, not a lot is open in Chinatown at night. Plenty of homeless panhandlers. The hotel was OK. The bed was extremely comfortable. The tv was new and there was a fridge. However, the bathroom was old and small. The breakfast was OK< but the lady serving was so friendly and anxious...

Needed a place for one night close to USC Health Sciences/Norris ($15 cab ride). Older hotel, but felt safe tucked inside mini mall type building. Have to use room key to operate elevators. Was quiet and clean. New furnishings and fixtures. Plumbing older, but plenty of hot water. Great location near downtown, but you're not paying downtown hotel price and...

The Front Desk personnel were very professional and helpful. They made the check-in process very smooth. I needed to stay downtown because I had a doctor's appointment at nearby USC Spine Center. Because of the notorious downtown traffic during rush hour I needed to stay downtown. This Chinatown Best Western hotel fit the bill. It was convenient (4.5 miles from...

This hotel is in bustling Chinatown but is very quiet and comfortable. Parking is underneath, safe and very accessible. The value is good without fanfare and fancy furnishings but good solid amenities and service that made our stay memorable.

My two elementary age daughters and I stayed here as we enjoyed a non-Disney vacation highlighted by the Pasadena Rose Parade.

It's close to the Dodger's stadium plus you're in the heart of Chinatown if you want to shop. The place is descent enough. It's just the aircon was too loud at night. Their free breakfast was great. The valet guy was so nice and your car is well secured. To park at the Best Western was only $10.00 per day.

First, let me qualify the one-star rating. The hotel is getting this poor rating because of one factor, which is, to me, an indicator of other potential problems. That factor is their decision to ignore a $20 Best Western incentive gift card. The card's instructions were to present it at the time of check-in and $20 would be deducted from...

Older property in the midst of china town. The entrance was a little difficult to find in an alley way, reminiscent of the orient. Service was good and the place was clean. Bathroom was very small. Breakfast was good, with the exception of the syrup which was strange tasting.

Hello William: Thank you for staying with us. Sorry for the small driveway. There just isn't much land in a downtown area to have such comforts. I will check into the syrup to make sure there isn't anything wrong with it. Regards and safe travels, Best Western Plus Dragon Gate Inn

floors were filthy, had to wash our feet before going to bed. Not much around the hotel, in a run down part of china town. The ad says the city is minutes from the hotel, but I don't know if that is walking distiance, more like driving.
