I've read some of the reviews on this place and some are accurate some are not.
I definitely recommend it if you're looking to stay in the area. Let me bullet point out what you need to know:
-The neighborhood is not unsafe. I don't know why anyone would think otherwise (I do know why but I'm just polite enough to not say it directly but not polite enough to not hint at it between parentheses).
-The neighborhood is good if you only have one car (that fits in a compact garage spot) but if you have more than one or a large vehicle, expect to be looking for parking when you get back in the evening. The furthest I had to go was about a half-mile away.
-You're about 5-10 minutes from Disneyland or the Convention Center, so that's cool. It's a pretty cheap Lyft to either if you didn't drive or don't want to pay for parking; maybe like $10-ish (parking at the CC was $15, not sure about Disney). There isn't a lot of stuff in walking distance, so I would either expect to Lyft everywhere or sort out some transportation.
-The host did an outstanding job. It was stocked with little snacks, coffee, all kinds of brochures, towels--basically all the necessities. The apartment looked exceptionally clean and well-decorated, almost as if brand new, betraying the older exterior of the building in the most pleasantly surprising fashion. I don't know if the host has prior experience in interior design but she's obviously quite good at it. If I had to nitpick something, I suppose the bathroom could use an update, but it's absolutely fine although I will say the shower head leaked a little--not a deal-breaker by any means. Also, the air conditioner doesn't always reach the bedroom so if you're gonna be hanging out in the day, it could get warm in that room. Luckily, you're going to Southern California so nights are always nice and cool and we experienced no issues with temperature, or anything else for that matter.
-The internet worked well. We had *several* devices connected at one point and experienced no decrease in speed.
-There were two keys and check in/out went quickly and smoothly; the directions we were given were clear and easy to do.
Again, I do highly recommend this place if you're going to be in the area and need a nice, affordable space to stay. I would certainly stay here again without hesitation.
