Shelter Hotel July 2012

The hotel is still going through renovations. The room was clean with a new bed and TV. But there were no towel bars/hooks in the obviously new bathroom. There was no iron and board or blow dryer. Those things were provided when asked for. The room looks barren because there is no artwork and it overlooked an empty courtyard. It also had no clock. The description says it has a pool - it does - but it was all dug up and far from being usable. There are no ice machines or vending - when we inquired about ice, they said they had forgotten to buy any. There was ice the nex t day. I asked to have 4 towels - the next day there were 3 (and they are very thin), after that only 2 and I gave up. The lobby is also unfinished and takes you aback when you first come in and the desk clerk was asleep. There is nothing in the room/lobby that gives you any information regarding the hotel or the surrounding area. This has the potential to be a nice place but it has a long way to go.

Random getaway in Ktown

Pros: Shelter Hotel is close to public transit (Metro rail and buses), which was important for our trip. The building was quiet, as was the neighborhood, and the room was spacious and clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We loved the hardwood floors in the room! Cons: Our room did not have towel racks or a hair dryer. This hotel does not have an ice machine. Wifi was pretty weak in our room, possibly because we were in a corner of the building. After a certain hour at night, the gate is closed and door is locked; you have to call a number from a phone (so you better have your cell on you!) to be let in. Parking is free, but limited so you have to leave your keys if you double park in their garage. Just a helpful note: Entering is a little confusing. The check-in desk is on the first floor, while the entrance is on the ground floor below. You have to take the stairs or elevator up, but that fact is not indicated anywhere by the entrance. The building looks like an old apartment building that has been converted and renovated into a hotel. It could still use a lot of work and more amenities, but it's clean.

Happily surprised

I needed a hotel for one night near West Hollywood without breaking the bank. The Shelter Hotel had a great rate with free parking. I was a little suspicious wh I entered the lobby. It obviously was a converted apartment building and the furnishings there left a bit to be desired. But the room was great. Updated with a very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. It was quiet and was perfect for my trip.

Affordable, clean hotel

This was my first trip to Los Angeles. The hotel was really nice, everything was pretty new. The room was clean and well furnished with a big flat screen on the wall. The man at check in was super friendly and helpful, and even helped us choose a spot for dinner. This place isn't in the best location, but it's way worth the money. Nicest hotel within a 2 mile radius.

Good thought, poor execusion

The hotel appeared to mid - remodel. There were several parties staying in the hotel from our group. The amentities in the rooms ranged from no closet or clothes rack to a closet bar and shelf, no hangers for towels in the bath room to a vanity and multiple hangers. There were no ice makers available for guests and the linens seemed to be in short or rationed supply. The rooms were in general clean and neat condition. The staff were very pleasant with the exception of the night clerk. Most were engaging and talkative whereas he was aloof and bothered to serve. I would consider staying again, but only outside of remodel phase and with basic hotel amenities added.

Quiet, Clean Room and Free Parking

This hotel was the quietest I have ever been in and our room was next to the elevator. Plain and simply furnished hotel, no extra's like hair dryer or ironing board. The hotel guest computer was fast and I was able to print material as well as boarding passes. The staff was very helpful.
