We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room, although obviously quite old was well kept up, neat and clean. The obvious reason to stay here is to enjoy the Magic Castle next door, but we would return to use as a base for Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Strip wanderings, also. Since...

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was an amazing stay that I would recommend to anyone visiting LA. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The free snacks from reception as well as a number of movies you could borrow added a nice touch. They even ordered us food when we returned from a night out slightly worse...

What a way to end our 3 and a half week holiday in the USA! We stayed 6 nights here and could not have stayed in a better hotel.

This gem of a property is just a stones throw from all of the action of Hollywood, the Kodak Theatre and the Walk of Stars. Above it is the amazing restaurant, Yamashiro- a must do!

What a great hotel...The physical structure is a little dated, but the location and the staff cannot be beat. If you are coming to Hollywood this is the place to stay.

My friend & I stayed in this lodge (cant name it Hotel) for 2 nights. We are globetrotters and usually when tripadviser says that 3 star hotel taking #1 position it means that the Hotel is very very good or at least not below average in some aspects.What a surprise to discover a shabby unpleasantly looking "room"...

We stayed at this hotel from May 28-May 30th. The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. They went out and bought a selection of cheeses for our breakfast .
