Farmer's Daughter Hotel
Travel Blogs from Los Angeles
there are probably plenty of good reasons for visiting Los Angeles, and we do come there occasionally...but this time it was quite a special occasion: David (one of the five children that we have between us two) was graduating from USC...if you read my blogs, chances are - you've already met David (and his twin brother Geoffrey) in Lisbon...but if …
Okay so I Landed in LA on Friday the 15th Of Sept. No hotel, mostel nor hostel booked I decided it was a good thing to arrange something from the airport and then get a shuttle there as I hadn't a ******* notion where I was or what LA is about. My choice was the Farmers Daughter Motel which was conveniently close by to my Yoga School. Allowing me …
... Julia's sports bag and took off. Really bad end to an otherwise great trip but have to be thankful that they didn't take Jeff's laptop which was also in the boot. We think they were probably interrupted and didn't have time to go through everything. The sneaky *******s had even zipped Jeff’s backpack up again, probably to defer detection, which of course it did. The camera equipment can be replaced with not too much drama. ...

Not wanting to chance my luck I caught an early metro into downtown and after dealing with the young ticket assistant who seemed incredulous that I wouldn't want to spend my every waking hour waiting for a ****** bus, I proceeded to spend an hour mending, with eventual success, a left flip-flop which had died in the process.
Having been mentally prepared for a gruelling (if ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Farmer's Daughter Hotel Los Angeles
I stayed at the Farmer's Daughter for a family wedding in Los Angeles.
I have stayed at the Farmer's Daughter in the past while visiting my relatives and found that they have renovated their hotelin a country theme. The rooms were nicely done and looked great. There's plenty of amenities like a frige, safe, and free guest DSL. The staff made me feel comfortable and were very helpfull. I will definately recommend that anyone check them out if you are going to be in Los Angeles.
Another bum deal
I stayed at the Farmer's Daughter on August 28th with my two kids, aged 3 and 7 years old. The room was ok. The construction noise was bothersome. The stay was a non event, absolutely nothing special or charming about this place.Four days later we received a bill from the hotel charging us for two pillows for 60$. When we contacted them they refused to recognize that they were both accusing me and my two young kids of theft, but they were also acting as the judge and jury and collecting from us.I am fascinated by their gross misjudgement of common decency.Please consider staying anywhere but here, especially if you wish to avoid litigation with the owners at a later date.You will not miss anything and you may save yourself a LOT of headache. These are not nice people.
A 'lil slice of heaven
I just returned for 3 nights to the Farmers Daughter Hotel after being away for a year and a half, and oh WHAT A CHANGE!!! The renovations are almost completed, and this place is going to be AWESOME! They have added a whole list of new features like high speed internet and a charming new design. The staff is also very friendly and curteous. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay at an affordably priced spot in L.A. that is Funky, Piquant, and Comfortable at the same time.
A Nice Surprise...
OK, so I went on a business trip down to LA last week and this place was pretty close to my appointment. I booked it via the internet, but I hadn't heard of the place before...what a find!The rooms were very clean and fresh; the people were nice and polite and its great value for money(a big plus!). Id recommend giving it a try to anyone...Its a great place to stay if you do LA on the cheap but dont want to drop your standards :)
Great Location and I love the new rooms! A very pleasant place to stay.
I had the chance to stay at the Farmer's Daughter recently and their renovation is going to be fantastic. The rooms make you feel right at home. Not only that, but the Farmer's Daughter is located in the best location for shopping, wining and dining! Could not have asked for a better rate and a more accomodating staff! I am definitely going to stay there again on my next trip to LA!
Funky name, but great little hotel
Great place- I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I was expecting a really strange place from the name, but when a friend recommended it, it took the chance and booked it. I guess it has recently been re-done.
The rooms are very interesting. Very comfortable beds! The are is great. I also liked the location a lot. I had some friends in the same neighborhood. It made it easy for them to visit and it was convenient to shopping. I skipped their continental breakfast and walked across the stree the Farmer's Market.and that was a cool place to grab starbucks and read the paper. The price was way cheaper than the other hip hotels I checked out first. It was under a hundered bucks.
Best Deal in LA
I travel to LA frequently and ALWAYS stay here. the location can't be beat. The rooms are a great dealand clean. The owners and staff pleasant.
I vacationed with my wife and 21 year old daughter and 19 year old son in California on July of 2002. I am glad i found this site for a review. On 7/23/03 I checked into the Farmer's Daughter Hotel based on internet info I had seen. When I got there I asked to check out a room. I was shown a room with a queen sized bed and I thought it looked ok. However, when we were assigned a room with 2 beds, the room was nothing like the one I had seen. As a matter fact nobody in our party wanted to stay there when we saw it. We used the phone to call other hotels and left about 30 minutes later once we had secured a reservation elsewhere. When I asked for a cancellation I was told that was not possible. I asked to speak to the owner and they called him on the phone. He also refused to cancel the room charges. Needless to say we were all very upset but left anyway. We did however get charged on our credit card for $88.92. The floors were spotted and dirty and the walls in the room were dingy. I am glad we did not stay there and this review will be my way of getting some solace from the grief that they cost me and my family. I WOULD NEVER EVER VISIT THIS HOTEL AGAIN! THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME A PLACE TO INFORM YOUR READERS! By the way we found a great Best Western and had a great time in L.A. We WILL be back to L.A. Thanks, RRR
Upgraded!! Big Thumbs up!!
Stayed at this , what was a Motel but now it is something all its own, place and let me tell you it has been completetly redone!!!!!
The rooms have major style and comfort, kind of country.. Custom beds, FREE high speed Internet, wireless internet, plus all the usuals you would expect.
The big design plus was the WOOD FLOORS!!! That just put this over the top in terms of design.
Anyway, it was worth every penny.
