Where not to stay in LA

TripAdvisor (my personal favorite site for getting the low down on accomodations) has put together a list of the ten dirtiest hotels in the United States, and our own Pacific Sands Motel in Santa Monica has made the cut. Here’s a selection of what folks are saying about the Pacific Sands:

bed-bug.jpgWe put our dogs in cleaner kennels then this. . . . It should be burnt to the ground.

When checking into the room, found “the maid” and someone else in the bed, and embarrased, quickly turned around and went back to the office.

The room was dirty, the carpet was sticky, the bed smelled like urine, the light was gloomy. I felt like I was in a bad horror movie.

A transfer to Guantanamo Bay would have been preferable to a stay in this hell hole.

If youre given a choice between staying here or sleeping in the park with the homeless people,,,,,,,,,,,,,,take the park.

The inside of my toilet bowl is 10 times cleaner than this dump.

The bottom of the drawers were filled – to the point of covering up the entire bottom of the drawer – with cockroaches.


So now you know where to put up the in-laws next time they come to town.
