We stayed here during our daughter's cheer comepetions that were being held at the Los Angeles convention center. We wanted to spend some money in LA/Hollywood therfeore we chose a less expenseive hotel. We're so glad with our choice. For around $100 a night we got a room with 2 Queen size beds, a mini fridge, a microwave and a mini coffee pot. The room was CLEAN and that to me is the most important. The front desk staff was courteous and quick with checking us in. Also, he gave us some extra coffee and towels when I requested. The walls are thin but we weren't bothered by streetnoise or anything. One of the nights there was a guy banging on someones door and screaming and yelling - - h kept us up but I was too scared to call the front desk about it. :/ The mattresses are firm, my husband wasn't comofrtable in mattress but I was. This hotel is located in Korea Town in Downtown LA....there are lots of food options, plus don't forget, there's a fridge and a nooker. We walked to 7-11 a few times, it's literally a 45 second walk, theres an El Pollo Loco, a McDonalds and a few taco shops within a block or two. Also, there's a GREAT place to get some mexican food a couple blocks away called Rodeo Grill. This had some GREAT food....go there if you can. Theres also a B of A within walking distance which was great to me. Parking in their lot is free...another bonus. We could walk to the convention center as it's about a mile away but we had to be there at 6:45 AM, and that's a little too early for me to be walking. all in all, good experience, I would stay there again.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my fiancé for 3 nights. We chose this hotel because of it's central location and cheap price tag. Neither of us are fussy when it comes to our hotel generally, and we felt like this was an alright place for the price. However, if you're fussy, the Ritz is up the street about 10 blocks. hahaha
We arrived to check in to this Rodeway Inn on a Wednesday evening around 4 pm. We were the only ones there, and the clerk was friendly and got us checked in fairly quickly. There was a small mix up with my credit card because we had payed through a third party site (Expedia), where the room was already paid in full. Luckily, we figured out the issue before he tried charging me twice, so it wasn't a big deal at all.
We were given a room on the second floor, which met our needs. The room was equipped with a mini-fridge and a microwave, amongst other things. My only real gripe about the room itself was that I felt the bathroom could have used an upgrade. Although everything in our room was clean, it was far from new. My only other complaint was that we were given a room right near the entrance to the stairs, which had a creaky door, so every time someone walked through it, it squeeked for about 30 seconds straight! Fine during the day, but when you're trying to sleep, it will get to you.
The continental breakfast here is rather small, and only served from 7 am - 9 am. Your choices here are limited to 2 kinds of cereal (Cheerios or Frosted Flakes), a few bananas (if you're early enough to get one), a few pieces of bread (and a toaster of course), and bad pre-packaged danishes. Of course there is coffee and juices available also. I've seen better, although I'm not really one to complain about free food. It was decent & clean, but we were hungry an hour later.
Also, the TV in our room could have used an upgrade. I wasn't expecting a big screen HDTV or anything, but no matter how much we tried adjusting the color, it just seemed way off. There was no contrast setting in the menu, so we were stuck watching it the way it was. Not the worst thing in the world, but maybe it is time for some upgrades Rodeway!
Also, neighborhood wise, this place was OK. A little more on the ghetto end since you are on the outskirts of downtown, but it wasn't so bad that we felt unsafe or anything. There is a 7-11 up the street about a block where you can stop for anything small you may need.
Overall, we had a good experience here, and I would choose this hotel again if it met my needs location wise.

Not very good at all. I don't know where these average to good reviews are coming from, but my experience here was terrible. The rooms were pretty dirty; I found pubic hair on the sheets and blankets, found fleas under the covers, there's a pretty nasty stain on the ground next to the bed as well, and...the decor pretty much sucks. Don't be fooled by the nice pictures on this website as the camera was low-resolution anyway. The people who manage this place try and make the rooms like nice by adding new, modern furniture, but it comes off more tacky, if anything. Not to mention, this place was expensive. I left this hotel after one night because how disgusting this place was. Avoid if you can.

I was in a jam and booked this hotel last minute for an event I was working in Los Angeles. The room was small for two people (granted there were two girls with huge luggage cases). The rooms aren't glamourous but for what we paid they were clean and comfortable enough. They provided a free breakfast. It was very simple but appreciated. Parking is a little tight if you have a big car. Our massive truck fit in ok though. We had a bunch of gear in there for work the next day and we left it in the back of the truck over night and didn't have any problems. I went for a run the next morning and didn't feel unsafe or anything. I met a lot of nice people along the way. The internet was great. This was worth more than the rate we paid so I was happily surprised. I would definitley stay here again.

No fuckin stars for this place if i could! We paid 130 for a 1 bedroom. The room was nice, they are all non-smoking rooms and you cant smoke in the balcony. Upon checking out they said we had smoked and wanted to charge us 100 extra! We werent smoking, when we asked them to take us to the room. Jakir, bearded man at the front would not take us in. When i asked for a manager he said he was out. I asked for his number and he refused. I went to speak with the maid and they took us in, no smoke smell. She called him and told him no smoke when i went to go talk to him he told me she never called him. I brought her dowm and she told him to his face. He would not change his mind because he said that when he came in it smelled. There was people smoking up and down the balcony and we had the ac running. He did however say that he did smell the smoke on the balcony and that he called the manager, OF COURSE WE WERENT IN THERE! And that he would decide if we would get charged. I have to call back monday to dispute the entire thing and hopefully hes more understading. Jakir was ride and condascending. I really dont recommend this place. They rooms were nice but the managment was terrible. There was also several other people disputing the total cost of their rooms becuase they were billed extra.

Rodeway Inn. Very nice place and Big Parking lot. Not bad price though.. Clean rooms with ref and microwave. Though I wanted this to check in two nights before my wedding, Ramada Hotel hs a better package for us. In terms of budget, this hotel is a bit expensive to a middle class customers like me. There were no discounts offered. It is a big plus if they are offering it now. I suggest you ask first and maybe you can get a great deal. :) Goodluck!

I surprising liked it! Nice new bed! Wi-Fi that worked great! Very rare. Parking is a challenge though, I drive a tour bus. I wouldn't recommend this place if your driver has to stay with you. Lots of different food choices close by. A fridge, coffee maker in the room. Slept like a baby! You could walk to staples center. About 10 minutes in good shoes though, lots of city buses if your lazy. Try the Rodeo Mexican grill a block east! Cheap and taste, even mixed drinks :)

Rodeway inn, cutest little place!!
Twice before I've stayed at other Rodeway Inn's and let me tell you, they were all like half a star, but this one was definitely above my expectations!
Jazmyn checked me in, I don't know if she may be the owner of this place, but it kinda seemed like it, anyway, she was super nice and professional. I had booked two rooms with two beds in each and the rooms were so nice! They had working A/Cs, mini fridges, microwaves, coffee pots, hair dryer, very nice furniture, comfy beds and pillows, this place was just great! And it's completely obvious this place just went under renovations because the walls had nice fresh paint jobs, the decor was very up to date, and there are flat screen tv's.The area is a bit sketchy but their parking is gated so that let me sleep comfortably. Walking distance there are a few fast food places, a 7-11 and even Staples Center/LA Live. The pool was so cold, no heater :( and no jaccuzzi either, but it's ok, LA has a lot of cool things to see rather than sit in a cold pool. My group and I didn't try their breakfast since we woke up too late, but one nice thing we got to enjoy was looking over a marathon that was happening on the main road! I would definitely stay here again :)

This is a lower-end motel within about a fifteen minute walk down Olympic ( a large and mostly well-lit street ) of LA Live and the Staples Center. Parking for guests is free. As a budget choice near LA Live, it's pretty decent.
We stayed for one night while attending an event at LA Live. The walk up and down Olympic during daylight hours is no problem at all; even at night ( we left around 8pm and came back about midnight ), it's not bad compared to the rest of downtown LA.
Our room was clean, the A/C, though loud, worked just fine, there's a fridge and a microwave. The hotel has a small pool and serves a reasonable free breakfast ... pastries, fruits, coffee, milk and juice.
The front desk was reasonably friendly and accommodating; they had no trouble letting us check in a bit early when we called ahead to ask.
Overall, especially given the price, it's a good deal for the location.

The majority of the 'name-brand' hotels were either WAY overpriced or had no vacancies. Oh well, I was up for an adventure. I was indeed VERY pleased with this "jewel" of a find! My haircut probably gave away the possibility of being in the Military; was asked to show my military ID and was promptly given a healthy discount! Room rate went from $115.00 down to $85.00! ME LIKEY!
Over all the parking was not a problem (although a bit tight for larger cars, it seemed).
Property well lit and completely gated all around. Checked into the room (207) on the second floor, right above the pool. Entire area was pristine.
Opened the door not knowing what to expect...boy was I pleasantly surprised! Everything one needed; Microwave, ref, ironing board, iron, the room was clean and NO hint of cigarette smoke whatsoever.
I'm a sucker when it comes to saving money...to a point. This place is a short 5 minutes away from the Staples Center, the convention center, and within a 20-30 minute drive (depending on traffic) from most of the theme parks.
For me, and with my Military discount, I will surely be a 'repeat customer' with no hesitation!

We had an opportunity to book this hotel last minute before coming to LA. The price was right for one night.
At the day time there is construction takes place right next door, so the noise is insane, seriously. The parking a bit tight for the cars bigger than regular sedan, be aware of that.
The room was ok. The wi-fi worked, toilet and faucet worked. Tv is kind of outdated and remote worked occasionally. We have missed the breakfast because overslept, but I'm sure it was served for the guests right on time.
Property gated, located close to some restaurants and fast food places, close to Downtown, Staples center and not so far from the USC. I've got feeling that the renovation is desperately needed, and probably will bring the owners more stars in reviews. This place get's strong 2 stars, and one more as the credit for the future improvement.
I would not chose this hotel if the other more famous hotel chains would not keep insanely high rates.

If I could give this place -5 stars I would with a great big smile on my face. To begin this place looks NOTHING like what's advertised, it's completely dirty and was never cleaned during my parents 3 day stay over the Christmas holiday, sparks went flying from the light switch when they turned on the light, there's barely any parking, and to end the manager is as useless as they come. I tried multiple times, multiple ways to get in contact with him to arrange some type of compensation for everything that went wrong and to this day (two & a half weeks later) NO RESPONSE!!! If you are a person who works hard for your money and believes you should not only receive what is advertised to you but also receive what you paid for THEN do NOT stay here. I am so embarrassed that I booked and had to pay for my parents to stay here. The only way I, anyone of my family members or friends would go into any of those rooms is if one of them were the way to Heaven. Please don't put anymore money in the owners pockets, it'll CLOSE DOWN quicker.

There appears to be a disproportionate amount of parking spaces compared to hotel rooms, to say it sucks would be generous. If you arrive late, bring some walking shoes, a map, and pepper spray. We circled around 5 city blocks for 45 minutes with no openings, and while circling around for parking I had to see a crazy, naked from the waist down transient hanging out in front of the McDonald's down the block. Finally, the staff let us park in a red zone. The next morning, all red zones were full and there was barely enough room to drive out. Now, this next part probably doesn't happen all the time, so I won't hold it against the hotel, but the hot water heater blew up during our stay and we were without hot water for a day. When we asked for a partial refund or some some sort of compensation for the lack of parking and hot water, the staff refused.

This Inn was disappointing. The room had the basics but the carpet was very old and the room smelled. The sheets and towels were not the cleanest either.
The room was noisy, you can hear your neighbors easily. I was woken up in the middle of the night all 3 nights I stayed here by people either arriving or leaving the parking lot.
I wish I would have booked the other hotel I was looking at online. I would avoid this place if you like accommodations that are clean and quite. The neighborhood is not great although it is close to the LA Convention Center (but it's unsafe to walk there at night).

ok so.. this place isn't as close to LA Live as I'd like it to be, but it's cheap... and while 8 LA blocks is kinda far.. it's not bad. parking on site in an enclosed space is nice, but the neighborhood surrounding it is kinda sketchy. the staff were kinda friendly I guess, though I had no real problem with them.
I wouldn't stay out too late if I were you in this area unless you're straight up 'hood rat and can deal with them hoodlums, but again, that's me.
the room was quaint but updated and clean. bathroom was kinda weird, all tile, no shower door just one big shower with a toilet inside it and a curtain between the two units. no tub.
i wouldn't necessarily come here again for any other reason than other hotels in the area being booked already.

Unsafe. Dirty. Avoid if you're smart. This hotel does not have enough parking, as advertised. My family had to park blocks away after driving around and around a neighborhood ridden with prostitutes and drug addicts - not things I wanted my child to see on a family vacation. When we finally did find a parking space, we found human excrement on the curb next to the car. I would suggest that hotel staff park THEIR cars on the street and get rid of their reserved spaces. The front desk clerk was rude about the whole thing (you can find more about him in another bad review on this site). I will never stay here again. I would be afraid to.

My trip to Los Angeles to watch Michigan State in the Rose Bowl didn't get off to a great start (numerous flight delays) and trying to get to the Rodeway Inn from Union Station around 11 p.m. (was supposed to land at 8:30) was a nightmare at the time, but I can laugh about it now.
I tell the cab driver "I'm going to Rodeway Inn on Olympic." He knew where it was right away. When he drops me off, I'm thinking how I don't see signs for any sort of hotel. All I see is that I've been dropped off in front of a strip club ... late at night ... without many people around.
You have no idea how glad I was that I didn't get out of the cab, but instead made the driver wait for me while I called my friend to ask where the heck the hotel was. Finally, I figured out he dropped me off at BROADWAY and Olympic and blamed ME for the mistake when I'm positive I said "Rodeway Inn" because the name wasn't common like Marriott or whatever. Ugh, LA cab drivers.
I was never so happy to go to a budget motel. I give it four stars, but by no means is it a four-star hotel. But for what it is, it was a great three-night stay.
I was mostly impressed with the breakfast platter, and that's probably why I gave it the extra star. There's mini bagels/muffins, fresh fruit, waffles (both mini and full-sized), two choices of cereal, the usual coffee/tea/OJ and even a small fridge stocked with assorted Activia yogurt. Breakfast is served 7-9 a.m., but the staff was especially kind to let us have breakfast at 6 a.m. one of the days.
The downfall has to be the parking spaces. There just doesn't seem to be enough. Thankfully, we didn't have a car.
We stayed in a suite, which had a main area and another room, comfortably fitting the four of us. The other room had a foldout couch, which before booking, we were told would sleep two. It really doesn't, so we asked for a cot and wasn't charged. There's also a mini fridge, microwave and a coffee maker.
The layout of the room is kind of odd. And the television in the second room didn't work like the one in the main room. In fact, when you flipped channels, it controlled both televisions!
WiFi is also available, but at one point, I couldn't get online because too many people were signed on.
Overall, if you're not particularly picky and really only in the room to get ready and sleep, it's a decent choice that's moderately close to LA Live. It doesn't seem to be in the best part of town, but my friend and I felt safe going out at night. We took the bus heading out, but made sure to use Uber on the way back. I wouldn't venture too far off the main road if you're alone.

Research the location. If you want close to LA Live and are laid back you will be ok. We walked the 8 blocks or so but it isn't a walk I'd call inviting or one to plan solo. It is a bit dicey on the locale but for the 5 hours of sleep and the free parking while we toured LA it worked for us. Definitely look for the discounts for the hotel and be aware it is noisy. It didn't bother us much as it was NYE and we expected noise but for a light sleeper bring ear plugs.
Breakfast was nice and the staff were nice. If you want a space arrive early bc they go quick!

Perfect Hotel for what we needed... a place to sleep for the night! We stayed for the LA Jr. National Volleyball Qualifier at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The hotel is very close to the Convention Center. The price beat everywhere else, plus Free Parking, WiFi and Breakfast. Breakfast consisted of waffles, bagels, toast, oatmeal, cereal, fruits, yogurt, juice and coffee. We had a King Size bed plus a pull out couch (that only sleeps one). Roll away beds are also available. The room also had a small fridge that was cold, a microwave, a coffee pot and hair blow dryer. The On-demand TV Channels and movie channels were also a plus. Pool is very small, but clean. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. I have to say that I am very picky when it comes to where I stay! I must have searched every hotel in the LA Convention Center area for hours, reading reviews and looking at pictures before deciding on The Roadway Inn. I am very pleased with our decision. Especially when we wanted until the last minute to book our reservation and weren't allowed to cancel. I would definitely stay there again.

I do not recommend this hotel for the price. We stayed V-day eve. We had scheduled a late check out the next day. They put us in a room right next to the breakfast area. They booked a large party in the hotel as well. Beginning at 6:30 am, there were loud noises and loud talking right outside our room. We called the front desk, but it was useless.
The other problem was the carpet had been cleaned, I guess, and the carpet was still wet. When we took our shoes off, our socks got wet. When we came back later that evening, it had a moldy smell. I like Choice Hotels and the picture looked nice, but the room is useless if you can't sleep in it.

Older hotel/motel that has been renovated. On the cheap side but located in downtown la/korea town. Which means convenient for shops but not a great neighborhood. The staff is very friendly (why i gave 4 stars instead of 3) and there is complementary continental breakfast from 7-9am.
The rooms you can tell have been redone though there are still places paint is chipping. You hear a lot of road noise and the ac/heater is not the best.
Room service menu is really just delivery by outside restaurants but there are a ton and from different parts of downtown la.
The beds are ok. Not great not terrible. For a cheap place to stay that is centrally located this place is pretty good!
