"Stay on Main Hotel Review"
The staff was incredibly nice and the lobby was great. At first glance, seemed like a great cheap hotel to stay at. However, once we get out of the elevator to the where the rooms are located, creepy pictures on the wall, white lights in the hallways, weird sounds, our door was duct taped up..... No complaints about the actual room but the hallway vibe was creepy especially learning about the dark history behind this hotel the elevator ride is just too creepy. Left the night we checked in - could not handle the paranormal vibe

"I wouldn't come back"
I just wish they would've told me before I booked that there was shared shower/bathrooms so I could've booked somewhere else. They told me as I was checking in and I could upgrade for an additional $23 per night. The room smelled bad and it was constantly stuffy. The second night the vending machines were all out of water. The security guard who didnt speak any english basically told me to go somewhere else (out in the sketchy neighborhood) to buy water. Given this hotels grim past (which I had no idea before booking), I would never go back.

"American Horror Story Hotel???"
This hotel was the American Horror story base hotel idea. The hotel has a past of questionable deaths meaning it maybe haunted. I stay here on Halloween night looking for trouble (or fun). I didnt run into any ghosts only a few creeps on the streets on Halloween night.

This establishment deserves zero stars. Do not stay here. This is not a hotel, it has hostel type accommodations. The neighborhood is beside skid row. Avoid at all cost!

"Nice hotel in down town"
If I go back to L.A I'll definitely stay in the same hotel. Its nice and good place to be.. The only thing that I didn't like it was because there is not parking lot, they should have parking for the guest, because I had to pay everyday for my car to be in a parking space. :(

Some staff very unhelpful, room had no aircon and neither did reception area, which means it was actually cooler outside, which inLA is a feat! Area around hotel very unsafe. Would not stay there again.

"Shower and freshness"
There was no water pressure, especially the cold water and the hot water was too hot. No A/C so had to leave the window open and all I heard was ambulance all night aside from the trash collector truck. I would definitely not stay there again.

"Accommodating in Emergency"
I was due into LA at 9:00pm the day I checked into Stay on Main. Since the hotel's normal check-in deadline is 2:00am, I had plenty of time to make the two-mile trip to the hotel from the train station. However, the train I was on was involved in an accident and we were 5 1/2 hours behind schedule, arriving in LA closer to 3:00am. I had called ahead to inform the manager of my problem, and he explained that my reservation would processed at the usual check-in deadline of 2:00am, but he would hold my room for me until I arrived. Not only was he true to his word, having kept the room available, but the staff was extremely helpful in carrying my baggage upstairs with me and helping me again when I checked out. To top it off, they served a free continental breakfast -- including fresh hot waffles -- from 7:30 to 10:00am on the mezzanine level. The hotel is not only comfortable, convenient and reasonably priced, with excellent service, but it is also quite beautiful inside. The balcony of the mezzanine has gorgeous carved wood railings, the floors throughout are marble with mosaic tile inlays everywhere, and on every hallway there are alcoves with classical moldings and antique looking vases. It is very striking. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an inexpensive, clean and comfortable place to stay for a short visit to LA. The only down-sides were that there was no A/C, and there was a fairly high level of ambient noise from factories near the hotel.

"Dirty around the edges"
This is a hostel, not a hotel. The rooms are not as clean as pictured. The staff was nice enough to work with me in trying to find a room that was truly 'non-smoking', after the third room I gave up on the search and found another hotel to stay at. There is no A/C, and very little sound privacy. They charged me for the first night, even though they couldn't accommodate a non-smoking room, nor had I ever set down my travel gear during the hour of back and forth. So, I basically got charged for an advertised room they didn't have and an hour of my time trying to work with them.

"Tiny & Expensive. Worst bathrooms and showers"
The lobby is nice. Once you get to your floor you start to think if the place was in a horror movie. Very small room and bathroom. The like you have a small walk in shower with a bathroom and sink inside your shower. If you shower, anyone using the toilet after will get their feet wet. No tub or anything to separate the bathroom

"What to expect when expecting nothing"
The room itself was good enough as a place to stay. I was not expecting the bathrooms to be oriented the way that they were, and I was anticipating a better air conditioning. The room itself served its purpose as a place to stay for the night, better for being social with other travelers and seeing the town than spending lots of time in the hotel. The room was clean enough, but I felt it needed fresh paint. The services available were more than enough, providing many little adjustments quickly. Location was amazing, which enforces the ability to explore the town. It is near several major transit lines, some good food, and easy access to great entertainment. Great for passing through or just being in town overnight for a show. But maybe not your weekend getaway.

"It was ok, right in downtown"
Only stayed for two days on Main. The hotel was ok and convenient to walk to the metro station. Plus it was right in downtown. The only downside was the area was kinda sketchy and room had no air conditioner, but was hardly there anyways. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to save money without spending $100 a night for a hotel.

"Never Again"
The room was a lot smaller than expected, the shower wasn't working so we had to bath in cold water like a bird bath. There was no parking for hotel guest so we had to pay an additional 20 bucks for parking. Then there was a $50 deposit that hasn't been credited back to my account, I'm now having to contact my bank to receive that money back on my card. Not happy at all.

Worst hotel ive ever seen!!!! 160 for a room "w/ a bathroom". ITS NOT A HOTEL, Its more of a low class hostel. Community bathrooms and showers. Unsafe area, NO AIR CONDITIONING, beds are brutally hard, someone had urinated in the elevator, it was awful and disgusting. Sleeping in your car is a way better option.

"DO NOT DO IT!!!"
Absolutely worst hotel in my 23yrs of living. Super hot rooms even with the fan running. Can't open the windows unless you want to hear yelling and cars all night. Bathroom was disgusting with no toilet lid and the shower BARLEY worked. The hallways was nasty and when ever someone opened and closed the door you could hair it all day and night. Woke up at 4am and had to cancel the rest of my stay and I'm not even high maintenance but I WOULD NOT recommend this place at all.Breakfast was ok but it was like having breakfast in a sauna!
