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.

pick a different hotel, the service was horrible. also had some trouble with the bathroom, and not a single employee was around to help. they have marked off areas, yet the guests still go in there. not only that but i sense there was something wrong with the water? when i showered i still felt somewhat sticky and there was an odor coming from the faucet

Over all my stay was questionable. The staff were great, they informed me of where and where not to go ( the black areas and non black). The rooms where nice and affordable. The beds were comfortable and big. The elevators would sometimes not work, at one point I started freaking out but I just took the stairs like any logical human. The food at the hotel was bad to say the least. The Staff directed me to to a small Chinese food restaurant, which was worse than the hotel, Rather soggy. The tap water was pungent, it wasn't the best, I'd bring your own. The weather was pretty awful rainy and dark, so the bad weather could a just made the hotel seem good. Either way, I'd come here for one day or two, never stay more than that.

seriously, never come. the workers are good, but all others are terrible. u probably heard about that chinese girl dead in water tank. and u may also know that the location is just near one of the worst neighbourhood in la. dont be mislead by the lobby.

So lisa lam Sold her soul to the Devil, then it was time to pay the piper... Is not the hotel's fault! I have no complaints, i got the room i needed for a good price and that was that, btw everything was normal, so it was good

Gosh, there is something about the water here that is so delicious and quenching. I wish they sold bottled water.
