Is it in a walkable distance to a subway station?

Thank you for your help.

No, no where close to a subway station.

The hotel is for business people, gamblers and shoppers at the Citadel.

Yep. Change your hotel. The hotel is located in southeast L.A. county. It is pointless to stay here except for the reasons scott provides.

The short answer is: "No, it's not near a subway station" but it helps to know if you are visiting L.A. for work or pleasure and, if the latter, what sites you plan to visit. While the hotel isn't within walking distance to a subway station (most hotels in L.A. are not since our subway system is tiny), there are other transit options nearby, i.e. bus lines and the above-ground train lines.

For example, the hotel is 1.5 miles from the City of Commerce Metrolink (train) station. The hotel might offer a free shuttle to the station; if not, there's a free local shuttle service called the "Orange Route" that will pick you up from the southwest corner of the Citadel Drive and Telgraph Road (a 2-minute walk from the hotel) and take you to the station (after one other stop) at no charge; a taxi would be about $8. Trains from Commerce into downtown L.A.'s Union Station take about 20 minutes and cost $5.50. Our downtown area has a number of attractions but keep in mind that downtown is at the eastern edge of our city; there is much to explore beyond downtown.

If, for example, you're headed for Disneyland, there are trains from Union Station that will get you close (about a 35 minute ride) followed by a short taxi or bus ride.

Just to add to the other answers, it depends on your own itinerary, of course, but for most tourists, that hotel is not well located, especially if you won't be driving and it sounds like you won't. Its not close to any of the main tourist attractions and you'd be spending hours on public transit getting places (taxi fares from there would be very expensive to most tourist attractions as well). If you can share with us your hotel budget per night, and give us an idea of your itinerary, we can most likely suggest some better located hotels.

This hotel is located in one of the less attractive areas of Los Angeles County--an area dominated by warehouses and industrial property-- and there is little to do anywhere for miles around (other than gamble at the onsite casino and shop at the factory outlets). Very poor location for tourism, and awful without a car. Just my opinion.

Sorry, I think the casino is in a nearby property, and that this hotel is at the outlet mall. Still, I wouldn't reccomend.

Thank you for your help.

Traveling with mother-senior. 3 nights. Budget around $90-130 per night. Less even better.

Easy access to the public transportation is a must (better subway).

Will Stillwell Hotel do?

The Stillwell is a 1.5-star hotel, ranked 191 out of 297 hotels ranked by Trip Advisor. It's not in a neighborhood that I would call 'walkable' (especially at night). Why do you want to stay near the red line in downtown L.A.? Our city is extremely spread out and the red line covers just a tiny portion of it. In addition, our downtown area is not in a central location -- it's at the eastern end of our city.

I would recommend looking in central Hollywood. Consider the Orchid Suites or Hollywood Celebrity hotels -- within easy walking distance of a number of attractions as well as the red line, multiple bus stops and the Starline (bus) Tours depot.

Also in Hollywood, consider; the Trylon Hotel on Franklin Av.

If you want to be outside of Hollywood, the Beverly Laurel Motor Hotel is in Beverly Grove (central L.A.)

The Travelodge Hollywood-Vermont/Sunset is a place to look at. It is close to the Vermont-Sunset subway station.

There is no subway station near the Beverly Laurel.
