This is a modest hotel with a very outdated and off-putting lobby. The parking is extremely cramped and difficult to negotiate on the side and front of the hotel. If you park in the front in the double spaces, you need to leave your keys. The parking spaces on the side are challenging, even for a small car (maybe the Smart car is an exception, but we did not see one.) The room on the third floor in the back was fine, quiet, included a microwave and small fridge, and safe as well as Internet access (Ask for the Internet access UN/PW when you check in.) It would appear that some rooms in the front are larger and have balconies. However, balconies facing the street would seem to have little value to us.
Breakfast is some coffee, roll or bagel or English Muffin, banana, and some cereals. The breakfast room is too small. Take the tray from the coffee machine in the room and use it to bring your breakfast back to your room. There is a Denny's right next door if you prefer a better breakfast. There are many restaurants in the area.
The hotel is within easy walking distance to UCLA campus, the Hammer Museum, Westwood shops and restaurants, Trader Joes, Ralphs, etc. It is also within 15 minutes (non rush hour) to the Getty Museum and, in the other direction, to the LACMA.
Really, the small lobby, breakfast room, and tiny parking spots are the worst parts of this hotel. Otherwise, the location and overall rooms are fine.
