This is an average motel style property in Hollywood. Non pretentious and good for a cheaper stay in LA / Hollywood Area. Reception man was very grumpy here, didnt seem to enjoy his job at all and the reception area was basic with bars on the desk and dirty looking. Rooms were clean, didn't smell bad though were very basic... More

We pride ourselves in having friendly and helpful staff at the front desk so I was a little surprised you thought the person on duty at the time was not so. Perhaps he had an off day for which I apologize. Your comment about there being bars at the front desk is entirely false. There is a window, which is... More

First of all, the front desk was very helpful and understanding. We arrived after pulling an all nighter, and only had two hours until our shuttle arrived for disney.

This hotel was the last stop on our 5 week long vacation and we had stayed in many other hotels. This was the second to worst. The room is clean, but very outdated, pretty sure the bed spread was from the 60's. The chairs in the room maybe from the 70's. It definitely needs an upgrade. The bathroom looked like... More

We picked this hotel because of it's close proximity to the Hollywood bowl. It's located just of the 101 so really easy to get to. The rooms and bathrooms are ok and so is the service.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
