Palga Grand Hotel puts you within a 10-minute drive of University of Southern California and Los Angeles Convention Center. You'll have free perks like WiFi and self parking. Also, Microsoft Theater and Staples Center are within a short drive.
Pros: Granted what the outside looks like, it's a quaint hotel thats great for small stays. The location is not too bad. You're close to downtown LA and a lot of eateries and shops. The staff spoke little English but were very kind and pleasant. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was small. We had a refrigerator and wifi (which we didn't bother to use due to how little we stayed in the room). It felt like a safer area. Cons: The bathroom. The floor was a bit dirty. Parking is limited. We left car at the hotel to secure parking and took a very long walk to downtown LA. Besides that it was a good stay. Totally recommend it and will stay there again.
Dark. Hot and uncomfortablePros: Private bathroom and a room ACCons: I booked for 2 separate beds and got a single big bed. The room was very dark. Only 1 out 2 lamps worked. Main room light was so dim it didnt make a difference if it was on or off. The bathroom mirror light only had 2 out 5 working. The only working bright light was the shower.
