    Free Wi-Fi; the Staff member were able to help me setting the laptop and solving my network problems; the hotel is centrally located

    I do not like the fact that there is not a 24 hours of lobby service. If you need something during the night, nobody could help you

    It was very cheap and the room was clean. The service was good and the employees were nice.

    The bathrooms and the kittchen was verz dirty and there was no plates or forks. The area is kinda dangerouse at night

    It is very convenient for transportation.

    Location.

    The room and the bath room is too small. One of the lifts was broken so it's very inconvenient. No wireless in the room.

    The newly renovated rooms looks nice but other than that nothing is good.The receptionist was quite helpful

    Shared bathroom, way to small. Stay and Cecil are actually the same building. The wireless internet is crappy.

    Cleanliness of room

    No internet in rooms and the shared room on the 6th floor was advertised as having internet access and it did not. I could not get my work done! The lobby internet was the only option and that closed at 11:30pm. This is a critical missing link for this hotel's success because our generation lives on the internet. Had I known the 6th floor 24/7 shared common room did not have internet I would have booked a different room. Best case, get internet in the rooms! You will have a blockbuster hotel if you do.

    I have been reading other reviews and people are saying that it is a bad area. Well, I have been coming to downtown for over ten years and in the last 5 years they have cleaned up, drastically, Main Street. The street is referred to as Skid Row where all the homeless would sleep on the sidewalks from 2nd to 8th street. But those days are gone and now it is becoming a more hip area with restaurants and art galleries. You will see a few homeless but if you walk at a quick, destined pace you will find nice restaurants and theatres to visit only a few blocks from the Stay hotel. There is so much to do downtown where a 35 cent dash bus can take you. Enjoy!

    Just noticed that they have doubled the price on the rooms...not sure why but $75 for a dorm room!? Are they nuts!???

    Yeah, the area is not the best, you will have to pay for parking and it's far from lax, but the price cannot be beat. The bus from the westside literally drops you off in front of the hotel, the building is funky and the folks are nice. The place is not too comfortable -- which I find funny. You won't want to sit in the seats too long, there's no view out your window and if there was an air conditioning unit or heating unit in the room I never saw it. Instead there's a fan so don't go in the hottest day in the summer or the coldest day in the winter. Otherwise -- not bad, Best for overnight, two nights are fine, three - four nights and you're still okay, but anything beyond you're probably pressing your luck.

    I stayed in a dorm room, which was priced more than the usual dorm room, although I was pleasantly surprised to see that I had all the room to myself. It was like paying for a private room, and against the private room rates I definitely got a bargain.

    The room was cold and there is no thermostat in the room. And the city noise outside can become quite loud.

    The hotel is supercheap if comparing with other hotels in downtown Los Angeles.

    Everything smells like insecticide. The breakfast is superpoor. The staff is totally unhelpful. You have to upstairs with your luggage. The hotel is centric but surrounded by homeless' tents.

    Great rooms and excellent value for money

    There was a Kitchen with only a Mircowave in it. They hotel would have been perfect if they had a fully Kitchen. And it took us nearly 2 hours to get to the beach

    Hotel staff are very helpful and the location is very convenient, close to public transport.

    There is no aircon in my room and when I raised this matter to the receptionist, I was told there is no aircon in all the rooms, only ceiling fan. I think, I overlooked this matter when I did the booking. During winter it won't be a problem but during summer ????

    No hangers in the shared shower room, which also should be cleaned more frequently.
