Our group had just completed our 5 nights stay at Magic Castle Hotel and the staff were great! Besides the free snacks that are mentioned by previous reviewers, the staff went beyond their call of duty to prepare hot coffe and hot water when we requested for hot chocolate. There is a farmers market up the hill on Thursday evenings...

We were greeted on arrival with friendly smiles and sparkling lemonade - and despite arriving hours early they put in a massive effort and ensured our room was ready way ahead of schedule. This kind of incredible service is a hallmark of this hotel - all the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was nice, the free...

We stayed at magic castle for 3 nights. We were warmly met with a glass if refreshing cloudy lemonade and assistance with our bags. The guys & gals on reception had info printed out before we had asked the question. We loved it here. The location was a 6 min stroll from Main attractions. The hop on hop off bus...

We have recently returned from our second stay at the Magic Castle Hotel. This time my mother, daughter and myself stayed for 6 nights and last May 2012 my husband, son, daughter and myself stayed for 5 nights. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome, nothing is too much trouble. We had a one bedroom suite...

My friend and I do all the planning for a once a year couples trip. We use the internet to choose and book our accomondations, air, and all other planned activities. Choosing a hotel on the internet is a daunting task, but his year choosing the Magic Castle Inn and Suites was the best decision we could have made. After...

We stayed there for the last leg of our America trip. We had just came out of Vegas where we had no form of customer service or any help when we had some issues. The staff are amazing! Quite possibly the best myself and my partner have ever seen in a hotel. On our last day we were allowed to...

We sadly just left this hotel, while travelling around the USA, and this has been the best place we have ever stayed!!! The staff were the friendliest and most helpful people we have come across!!! The rooms were clean and the complimentary breakfast and optional snacks 24/7 was a real bonus. We can't say enough good things about this place!!!...

I have to confess that I am somewhat puzzled as to why the Magic Castle Hotel has received such an exceptional rating from Trip Advisor contributors. Hopefully my situation was an aberration as the place did not come close to meeting my expectations. I urge you to exercise caution when booking your room and when checking into the facility. The...

How is it that this hotel is ranked on tripadvisor.com as the best hotel in Los Angeles? It's definitely the work of a marketing team because this hotel doesn't even come close to being the best in L.A. I was born and raised in the city, and can tell you that without a doubt it doesn't even come close. At...

Hi Evan E. I’m not sure if you actually stayed at our hotel, or are giving your opinion based on having grown up in Los Angeles. I’m always concerned when someone reviews a hotel on TripAdvisor and says things like, “This is definitely the work of a marketing team,” which directly accuses us of fabricating reviews on TripAdvisor. That is...
