    Being a student, I am always trying to find the best deal.  I found this hotel on hostelworld.com and decided to book it after reading the good reviews.  I had a three day test to take in Beverly Hills, so this was the closest affordable place I found.  It was about $90/night (compared to the hotels in Beverly Hills that were $200-300/night) and took about 10 minutes for me to drive to the hotel.  When I first checked in, the manager (owner?) was very friendly.  Instead of a card, I was given a key to the room.  The first room I went into had a broken deadlock, so I asked him for a different room, which he gladly did.  The manager is really into security, so you have to get a different code every morning to connect to the free wi-fi.  

    The room has absolutely no frills and is just a place for you to rest your head at the end of the day.  There was never an issue with parking, and I felt safe in the area.  I would wake up every morning at 7, and he was always awake handing me a bottle of orange juice as soon as I walked into the office.  There were also packaged muffins and danishes for me to munch on every morning.  If you do choose to stay here, please don't expect a 5 star experience.  It is what it is - a place to go to sleep and get peace and quiet.  It's located near K-town, so there are plenty of good places to eat within 5 minute driving distance.

    A nice, well-appointed motel.  The staff is friendly and they offer free beverages in the lobby.  Complimentary continental breakfast that is quite nice.  The rooms, although dated, are immaculate.  The entire room is spotless.  It is on a busy street, but you cannot hear anything once you close the door.  The parking is free and abundant.

    We were looking for an affordable place to stay not to far from west Hollywood and Friendship Motor Inn came across our way via booking. The location is real good, staff was very friendly and our room was very clean. Check-out not very early and you can get a breakfast (simple but very efficient). Definitely a good spot for those seeking budget value accommodation!

    Nice and cozy place. The rooms were laid out nicely and you get what you pay for really. The customer service was extremely nice and super helpful! The guy at the front desk always made sure we were doing okay and got everything that we needed. We slept good throughout the night. There was even complimentary breakfast in the morning! Nothing special, just muffins and cereal and little things but it was still nice. I was a little bit nervous because of the area it was in, but I ended up being completely mind-blown at how much I enjoyed staying here. I would definitely come back here if I was ever in the area, super good service and place for a reasonable price!

    The staff is very friendly and make you feel welcome and like at home. the room is a bit tiny but it has enough space for two people and the bath, too. the wifi is a little slow though, but there's free parking

    Bottom Line:  What is a place as nice as this doing in the middle of Crenshaw??  Finding it was a pleasant little surprise for sure

            My wife and I stayed here the other night and we really enjoyed it.  The rooms are clean and well appointed and for $90 a night - it's perfect.  Pulling into the driveway you would never know you were in the middle of Los Angeles.
              We needed a room that would accommodate our crib so the gentleman behind the counter - who I can only imagine was the owner or manager of the facility - came out and showed us a room he suggested which was perfect and we booked it.  He was very friendly, helpful, and funny.
        We really liked this place - why cant more places be like this?

    thanks guys!

    I first came to stay here in February 2014, and I couldn't have been more impressed! The facilities are somewhat basic, I mostly lived out of my suitcase but this is a place more suited for short-term stays, and I was there for two weeks!
    That being said, I couldn't have been more comfortable for my entire stay, the room is generously sized, flawlessly clean and equipped with a cable stocked TV and big window to allow natural light to illuminate the room during the day.
    Even if the facilities were low in standards (which they most definitely are not!) I'd still rate The Friendship Motor inn 5 stars purely for the staff! They could not have been more accommodating, the owner is clearly very proud of his business and it couldn't be more justified, I couldn't have felt more welcome, he's always happy to help you in anyway he can, there's no kettle or hot drink services in the room, you have to go down to reception for those facilities and I honestly preferred it that way, I'd always be greeted with a warm welcome and left with tons of breakfast goodies and having had a good conversation!
    I frequently return to LA and always try to return to the Friendship Motor inn, however it is always booked! But I totally understand why! It's now February 2015, and I'm sat here on my comfy bed at the friendship motor inn, it's been exactly a year since I was last here and it's like I had never left! I booked my room 6months in advance, I was that adamant that I was going to be spending my time here.
    I couldn't praise this establishment any higher, it's modest in appearance but it punches way above it's weight.
    Money well spent and time well spent.
    This should be your first option for staying in LA.
