Bye Miami but HELLO LA!
As soon as we checked in we had to go to Warner Bros as we had a tour at 4pm. I knew how I wanted to get there with bus numbers, subway etc, I just needed a point in the right direction. Well that lead to 4 different people giving us four different in directions and I was only going to take my own way anyway. It took us …

I couldn't have scripted what happened today, after the prologue about the potential for a movie. 
The flight from Melbourne ended up adding another city to the list of destinations - we first headed to Sydney, which was not on the itinerary, before finally getting underway across the Pacific. These things are sent to try us: however in the …

... story. He kept recommending we go stay at the hostel in Santa Monica, it sounded very dodgy and we were wondering if he was trying to sell us drugs. Real interesting neighbourhood we were staying in.

Felt amazing to get home, eat some food, shower and then collapse straight into our beds. I had a blister on my ankle from my sandals and all our muscles were cramped from walking at least 15km today. Great night sleep though after we watched a bit of TV.

... out a nice, tidy creation. There was a little story within this ride too. Basically, Side-Show-Bob was hating on Crusty and the Simpsons clan, in a big way. We got thrown about a fair bit, and even took a trip into Maggie's moosh... It was wet, and smelly.

After that, we strolled past the Kwiki-Mart and dived in to this 'Special Effects' sneak preview show. It was awesome. There was this chubby guy presenting, and he showed us how ...

    Bargain hotel with great location


    This past October my husband and I stopped in LA between legs of an Amtrak trip from Chicago to San Diego. We made a reservation at the Days Inn Downtown. This modestly-priced hotel is on the edge of Chinatown, across the street from Union Station. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel offered a "continental breakfast" but we preferred to eat our breakfast at Original Philippe's, just a block away. Olvera Street is a short block away in the opposite direction. There was no coffee maker in the room, but there were three telephones, one of them in the bathroom.

    Great Value


    Stayed at the Days Inn Downtown Los Angeles for one night to see a concert at Dodger Stadium. Clean room, friendly staff, would stay again

    Good comfortable Motel - Good Location


    The Rooms are far above Motel average - spacious, newly equipped and in good condition. They also have a fridge, which isnt normal for a Motel.

    The location is good, just adjacent to the city center.

    There are some problems to get a space in the parking lot; often very busy - but we always managed to get a spot.

    Breakfast is also above average, staff is friendly.

    Would stay there again.

    Location suited our needs


    We stayed at this hotel especially to go to Olvera Street. We booked a hire car which we picked up at Union Station which is right across the road from the hotel. We arrived after a 14 hour flight and where able to book straight in at 10.00am which was appreciated.

    We booked over the internet on the Days Inn site my biggest praise is that they only charged us for 1 nights accommodation and they could have charged us for 2 nights.

    Our room was clean and tidy staff where good. We found a great Thai restaurant just to the rear of the hotel but I wouldnt go walking around this location a night. We managed to get a pizza delivered to the hotel in the evening no problems!

    Location and Price!


    My wife and I stayed at the Days Inn and were quite pleased. The location is strategic. Olvera Street is a short walk away, Phillipes is just down the block, Chinatown and Union Terminal are a short walk away. We didn't have a car, but parking in the hotel garage was $3 a day. Buses are easy to catch right outside the hotel or at Union Station (which has car rental counters too).

    I would never stay here!


    We were told through the days inn reservation center one price and another through the hotel lobby attendent. when I told him, he said it was not his policy to do anything about it and I would have to call the reservation center back. When I talked to them it was confirmed I was correct, yet the lobby attendent refused to listen, even when he talked to the reservation agent. I then proceded to cancel the reservation, however was told I could not, per the lobby attendent did not cancel reservations. I finally got this resolved, however I would not ever stay at this hotel. If you do, make sure the front desk quotes you the same price before you decide to check in.

    Great budget choice


    The room was very clean and the staff friendly. Covenient location to downtown, Chinatown, and best of all, Union Station, thus to all of L.A. Highly recommended for those on a budget.

    Budget Best!


    Spent one night in LA and this was perfect! Right next to an In-and-Out Burger and about 1.5 block walk from Hollywood & Highland for Mann's Theatre and Walk of Fame (we were lucky enough to see a movie premiere!). Traveling with my teenage sisters and felt safe at this hotel. Parking is free!! You are on Sunset Blvd so if you just keep driving past the hotel you see all the cool clubs and celeb spots. Will stay here again.

    Handy location


    okay if you want to catch train at union station....had trouble getting the front desk to understand english...hotel quite comfotrable but pretty old and wouldnt want to wonder to far at night

    Pleasant enough big city hotel


    Comfortable hotel right across from Union Station and the Pueblo, near Chinatown. Philippe's right up the street is a Los Angeles institution and deserves to be. The breakfasts, French Dip sandwiches and atmosphere are fantastic. Hotel has secure parking as the area in general is not great at night. Convenient for downtown and the station.
