Had a great stay here, I left for a few days and came back, the rooms were cleaner than my suite in Vegas, rooms were cleaned everyday and the facilities are great especially the mini cinema and the freshly made waffles in the complimentary breakfast. Best of all was the staff, for a first timer to LA the staff couldn't be more helpful, knowing the best ways to get to anywhere you asked, drawing maps and giving tips and recommendations. Nothing is too much trouble for them at any time day or night and they are always so positive and upbeat even the cleaning staff and security are so friendly. Will be staying again for sure

You get what you pay for, right? And for what we paid, it's really not that bad. The guys at the front desk are friendly, and even though the building is old and doesn't have AC, the room comes with a fan to stay cool. We didn't feel safe at first but we got used to the simplicity of the room, which had its own toilet but shared shower. The bed is comfortable and clean enough to sleep on. The lobby is pretty lively as they're always playing music and lots of other young people stay at this hotel. For breakfast, it's always waffles lol Downsides to staying here: the location isn't that safe, the streets of downtown smell like piss, the wifi is slow, and sometimes the key cards stop working.

Pretty groovy. I called, they came within an hour, installed much needed locks for 5 doors in our office, and were gone in a flash. Easy credit card payment done at MY desk. And no, I don't have that equipment. Stay on Main Hotel and convenience, I don't know what more you can ask for from a business, but I'm about to call them back to put in a deadbolt.

This place smells. You get what you pay for I guess. The two double bed room we got had twin size beds. It says it could fit 4. Lies. And bathrooms are shared between everyone. Co-Ed bathroom. Above the bathroom, there is a opening where someone could easily climbed over to the other stall/shower. My sisters and I kept a watch for each other while one use the restroom and shower. Stayed out first night and checked out for the rest of our one week booked vacation. Plus, the walls are super thin and the doors are just not safe. It is right downtown, very convenient to walking around but there were random people just hanging out in the lobby. A huge group of people hung out by the check in counter and just talked to the employee. Took him 15 mins to finally realize we were waiting to check in. Bad service. We had to always show our ID just to get up to our floor. We thought we'd stay here because the photos looked decent. But the rooms are so small. Don't waste money on this unless you're looking for a quick nap.

Well I was here last week July. 31 2015 and to tell you the true I didn't know Elisa Lam body was found in the tank of water. Until I was searching for feed back on this Hotel that when I read Richard Ramirez lived on the top floor and slaughter his victims. Then Jack Unterweger also stay and murder three prostitus. I was in shock and also they change their name when it used to be call Cecil Hotel and now is call Stay on Main. Well where the hotel is located is a bad neighborhood but the bed where a joke they are like a toddlers bed the room was clean I spend $207 for one night and I got a room with two beds do to the fact they where going to charge me the same for one bed and not have a private restroom and with the two beds I was going to have my private restroom. For the price I pay I should gone to a better hotel they had fan not a cooler ac also the breakfast was a joke homeade waffles and cereal coffee and orange juice. Don't get me wrong the lobby is really nice just the rooms are small I bruise myself since the beds are small and close together now I m just waiting on my refund $50 since they charge me that in case I leave damages on the room. Seven days already pass let see what happens.
