"Very beautiful hotel popular area"
I did not like the fact that my room did not have a restroom inside the room we had to walk out in the hallway to use the restroom. There is no parking available for guest staying at hotel they send you next door where you can be charge $15-$20 for the night.

Not bad for a quick stay in the city. Opted for a private room and private bath. The room was a little tiny and the floor was dirty. Otherwise your typical motel room stay.

"Noisy and uncomfortable"
Took the risk and stayed for 1 night. It's very old and in need of general improvements. There was a long line and wait at reception checking in. They ask for a $50 deposit for damages that do not return checking out, but several days later. Worse they lost my paperwork and could not good my receipt. The room was bare but OK for 1 night. The bed was hard. My neighbors were very noisy, yelling and moving stuff around in their room and hallways all night. Not recommendable!

"Good Hotel"
For the price posted. It was pretty good. The hotel was in the center of DTLA. I didn't expect fancy hotel for a price, but this one actually gives justice to those who wants value for money stay and you get free continental breakfast for the price. The guy in the front desk (i forgot his name) is so helpful and very cool. I checked in early and he checked and see if the room is available (good thing it was) and he immediately take care of everything. Rooms is clean and enough to move around. For this type of hotel, i would give thumbs up.

"Lost Weekend"
The lobby is super swank. You think you're in for something special, and you are...just not what you think. After waiting in line for 30 mins to check in, we were almost charged again for the room, the clerk was not interested in my input, though I knew a lot more than she did about my booking. She was curt and unpleasant. The halls are clinical, it feels like an institution. There are no wastebaskets in the shared bathrooms. The bed was flat and somewhat unforgiving, and the city outside is loud all night. Don't stay here if you're not cool with serious urban grit. All that said, I did enjoy my stay here. I felt like I was in the film Lost Weekend, trying to kick my alcoholism and failing horribly, living in a weekly rental room with a shared toilet, and hiding booze by hanging it out the window on a string. Good times. :)

"if your looking to stay for few hrs its ok.."
I have never stay in a hotel like that but for the cheapest price and been an emergency for me think it's ok.. I didn't like the smell if cockroach spray on my room, I had to get out of the room and open the window cause the smell was bad the shower and bathrooms were outside which was very uncomfortable. For who ever wants to be in a hotel for couple of hrs its fine but not more than that..

Room was nothing like the picture and was a very minimalist hotel for the price. But staff was extremely friendly, in particular a wonderful man named jonah. My girlfriend and i has never been to downtown la for vacation, and Jonah was nice enough to take the extra time to not only tell us the better and worse places to go, but also how to get to all of them either by train bus or subway, and wrote it all down on a hotel provided map. The hotel overall was decent for a quick stay in la, but the staff and Jonah in particular made the trip wonderful

"Very much a hostel environment"
It is a hostel in a tall older building in DTLA so room expectations should be filtered through that knowledge. That being said this is now the second time we have stayed here and will do so again. We always get a room with a private bath (my days of hostel living behind me) and that makes all the difference. Rooms are tiny and Spartan but provide the necessities. The only real issue we had was water pressure in the shower, as there was none, but this could again be due to being on the top floor of an older building. We made due. Otherwise there's nothing else about this place that didn't meet my expectations for its rating.

"Queen with shared bathroom"
It was a toss up between this and Airbnb for a one night stay in LA, and I'm still not sure I made the right choice. I paid $68.00 for a noisy, smelly room, but at least I had privacy. My room faced inward towards another wing (The building is shaped like an "E"), and the traffic, siren and mechanical noise from what I assume was a generator was quite loud. I suspect a room facing the street would actually be quieter. Don't forget to pack earplugs. The slamming of room and bathroom doors was also annoying, and the room and halls smelled of bug spray. In the end, the creepy history of the former Hotel Cecil was the deciding factor, but I would not stay here again unless I was just in town for a Skid Row bender and guaranteed to pass out every night.

"Hostel quality for a hotel price"
Cool lobby in a historic building, but that's about where it ends. The rooms are small and falling apart. They seemed clean, but it's hard to tell how clean it really was with all the peeling paint, rust, and stains everywhere. There is no A/C (which in LA heat is terrible), and the bed was very hard and thin. Check in took over 30mins because there was 10 people in line and only one person checking us in and doing a thousand other things, and another woman who just stood at the front desk and told people she couldn't help them, they'd have to wait in line. Wifi was very slow, and the continental breakfast offered only coffee, cornflakes and waffles, if you wanted to wait in line for them, and it didn't start until 7:30. The shared bathrooms were clean, but the guy that cleaned them did it at around 8 am, right when people are trying to shower. Maybe it would have been better to wait until noon? I know a lot of people are on vacation, but I was late to my conference one day because I had to wait for the shower. They seemed to offer a lot in the way of tours and stuff, which I could unfortunately not take advantage of. They presented themselves as a hotel/hostel, but it seemed more like hostel quality for a hotel price. It might have been fun to stay at with a bunch of friends, because it was a cool building and you could laugh about everything falling apart, but paying $100 a night for substandard everything by yourself made it an unpleasant experience.

"Disgusting"
The rooms advertised are NOT what they give you. The shower oddly isn't enclosed so when you do shower, it soaks everything and there's a drain in the floor 2 feet from the toilet. No air conditioning! No free parking ($20 a night) The front desk couldn't find our reservation because we booked with Expedia so it took 45 minutes just to get to our room. Just an awful experience.

The hotel room matched the image, it was nice and quant, but the hotel is overpriced for the facilities offered. Granted there are activities in the lobby (breakfast, movie theater, ping pong), but that doesn't compensate for the lack of air conditioning (at least in my room), television channels, the lack of speed from the wifi, no refrigerator for the rooms (they have a community refrigerator; I placed my breakfast for the morning in refrigerator, with my name on it, and someone took it upon themselves to eat it) the bathrooms are shared (which I didn't mind, but the quality of the showers/toilets were moderate for the price) with no air circulation (so if someone pooped there was a lingering smell), and no sinks in the toilets to wash your hands afterwards (cleanliness). I would not stay there again unless the rate for the rooms decreased.

Very small simple rooms, the cheaper rooms have a shared bath room in the hall so I always pay a tad more fr a private bathroom. Only reason. We stay is because is super close the exchangela and cheap! If you're looking for something fancy don't stay here, literally just a room and a bed pretty much.

Some might consider the immediate neighborhood a lil' rough but I'm in this part of downtown a lot and as long as you don't look like a lone baby gazelle you'll be fine. Plus the surrounding area is massively fun, unique and worth the visit.

"Maybe "NOT" Stay on Main"
1) During check-in staff did not welcome me and was not friendly nor professional. 2) Same staff person gave me an old room on a very high floor when there were many empty modern finished rooms on the lower floors. I was not offered a chioce. 3) Staff made me feel discriminated against which put a "bad" taste in my mouth about the Stay On Main! If inquiry about getting into the kitchen had not come up I would not have known about the better finished rooms which was revealed by another staff member.

"The Cecil is my go-to DTLA hotel"
I've been staying at this hotel for years; since it was the Cecil. It's got a glorious lobby and functional, simple, bathroom-down-the-hall rooms. This hotel often gets an undeserved bad rap. It's lower priced, so what do you expect, anyway? It's a pleasant, safe, clean, simple place to stay. Usually (but not always) a good price. It's got dorm rooms AND regular rooms. I ask for a room with a street view, but the no-view rooms would be quieter. I'm not a fan of their day-glow orange remodel, but this time I got a nice old-fashioned room on the 8th floor, which I prefer. The neighborhood is changing fast. Yes, you are downtown in a big city, so it's a bit sketchy and you're near skid row. But I always feel safe walking around, and there are a zillion interesting things to see and do nearby: the cool old buildings of downtown, good places to eat, Olvera Street, Little Tokyo, the Edison Bar, museums, Grand Central Market, etc etc (may I recommend the Sultan for falafels and the 5-Cent Diner just up the street). Come by train and get off in beautiful Union Station! SUGGESTION TO HOTEL: Please be more environmental. It's 2015! Have a recycling bin! And don't whisk away clean towels and barely-used soaps! Also, add some hooks and coathangers and towel bars, please!

"Be warned"
First and foremost, this is not a hotel, it's a hostel. They do have rooms with private showers and toilets but they are about $10 more a night. No AC, there is a ceiling fan and a table top fan to cool you off. There is a radiator for heat. I had a private room with shower and toilet and it's a basic room, tv on wall, a shelf under the tv and a nite stand. There is nowhere to unpack, and there are no creature comforts. Fred cont bfast is ok, but for $40 a night what do expect.

So on a hot day it gets a little warm in the rooms. But they do have ceiling fans. It's right in DTLA was built in 1927 and is a real piece of art. Free coffee and breakfast haven't tried it yet.

"DTLA/ stay on main"
We had a queen size room with private bathroom. It was a smaller room, as opposed to a big chain hotel, but I suggest to get one with a private / unshared bathroom or you will feel like it's college dormitory living. It is in the heart of DTLA, so know your surroundings. There is armed guards / doormen in every building, so it's not like it's unsafe, just always be aware of your surroundings. *Perfect location to walk anywhere in DTLA and hit up any boutique or resturant . *Use uber, because cabs will drain the pockets or walk to Pershing train station to ride the train to Hollywood. **Over all a good place to lay your head if you won't be inside all the time. Also, make sure to take advantage of the free breakfast in the morning.

"Stay away, spend your money elsewhere"
We arrived and when you first walk in it looks very appealing. After some walking around we found the bar area which was completely empty. Not even any taps, decor, kitchen, nothing but empty tables. We also saw the café which was closed the whole time. It seemed like it was made for show. The rooms were small, shower did not work, hardly any space for your luggage. The next door tennants were blasting music all night, yelling, and it smelled of weed. Some rooms did not even have a private bath/shower. Neighborhood was scary to say the least. Would not recommend this place to anyone, especially if you have kids of any age.
