From expedia: http://www.expedia.ca/Los-Angeles-Ho...mation#reviews

Someone from Vancouver posted a comment on Feb. 13th saying that the elevators in the hotel were not working!

Quote:
as everyone suggested in the previous posts, the hotel room is awful, the smallest bed room i have ever seem. the private bathroom is small too, you have to put your jaw into the sink when you sit right front on the toilet. the elevator in the hotel had been down for couple of hours in one day.the "free" breakfast need you pay some tips too.
On the other hand, the location are not as bad as been told, yes, there are many African-american homeless-like guys hugging around the area, but it is still safe enough to walk around at night to take transportation or go buy some supplies.

A Lam test is a test for TB

a Elisa kit is any test that uses a color changing chemical reaction to identify certain properties.. drugs, certain diseases, water tests, quality control in the food industry and the like

Like the quick test cops use to identify drugs on the spot is a Elisa kit

But you're correct there is an Elisa kit to test for TB.. that's pretty good

BTW skid row is a couple miles away

wait so you guys are saying by some coincidence that the test kit and the test for determining TB are identical to her name?

Can this get any worse than it already is?

I pray for her family.

After seeing all these coincidences, if I was family, I would have believed there was a conspiracy from Hollywood. Real life movie and shit.

TB test?
Sketchy hotel?
Google Maps picture?

WTF is next?

Also.. her death is pretty much the real life story of the movie "Dark Water".

This story probably one of the creepiest stories ever.

Seems like a piece of shit hotel going by that reviws.

Here are some tidbits from a few reviews on http://www.expedia.ca/Los-Angeles-Ho...mation#reviews

all before the incident

"There is a lot of homeless people asking money, and for those like me that were saving money using just buses and subways, it's kind of scary and not that safe getting there after the nightfall. There is no parties around there, and places to eat close very early."

"The hotel disadvantages are as follow: the rooms are dark with odd smell, there is only sink inside the rooms, shower rooms and toilets are in the corridors and shared with other guests, continental breakfast was only cereals and the water provided for tea in the flasks was cold every day. (Nowhere near continental breakfast,).Plenty of homeless around however not trouble to anybody, not a suitable hotel for families and young kids."

"Almost got robbed walking out of the hotel by a Mexican gang member
Depolorable aesthetics.
They hiked the vending machine prices basically in front of me because I was buying alot from it. Sink in room had mildew and grime present. My room reminded me that "Hell" does exist, With how sweltering it was"

"The area surrounding the hotel was very scarry to say the least. For exemple, there was a homeless person sleeping outside the front door.
As for the cleanliness - it was horrible - for example, had to kill a very large cockrotch in our room that had terrified my son.

This was by far the worst hotel I had ever stayed in. Please NEVER recommmend this to others. I have stayed numerous times with Expedia hotels and always have been satisfied with the accomodations -not this time"

"Pathetic..
The rooms are not at all neat. The walls were like can fall apart anytime. feel like you are in a haunted building.

Was scared to walk in the corridors.
Dont get proper hot water in the mornings.
The bed creeks.. There is no ACs, which I didnt knew until I checked-in.
They say the bathroom is shared for 4 rooms, but its for entire floor.
Not many options will be available for you to upgrade even if you want to, by paying extra money.
They dont serve any good breakfast.
The receptionist doesn't provide any good basic information.
They have these 4 sets of deadbolts to the door, that itself shows that even they are not sure of their customers safety.
We were continuously hearing to the loud police sirens all night long, can hardly sleep."
Dont recommends if you are looking fora pleasant stay. Not worth the price.


loled at these 3
"The elevators from hell. I believe they went all the way down to hell; that's why they took so long."


"What a piece of shit"


"5 minutes after leaving the hotel I noticed that I left my wallet back there. I didn't bother retrieving it"

I was just being nice posting these, A lot of people going into a lot of detail on how much of a piece of shit is it in there just too long to post in here, go see for yourself on the link
