Our family of 5 stayed 4 nights here - the kids absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean, although the kitchen was very old and worn (but we didn't cook, so weren't too fussed). We had a family room with 2 double beds in one bedroom (which 3 of us shared) and 2 slept on the fold out couch (not...

We actually stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel, in December 2015, which is owned and operated by the Magic Castle Hotel. We were here for our honeymoon. The Magic Castle Hotel had very friendly staff. There is a continental breakfast by the pool every morning. We were always greeted by the magician Alfonso. He's a great guy. I'd like to...

I can not mention enough how the staff here want to please you. They are so eager to help and the hotel prides themselves with unlimited snacks, chips, drinks, ice cream and even have a popsicle hotline. They will even do the clothes washing for you. Nothing better for a mum than to have your clothes washing done for you....

The Magic Castle Hotel was a very fun experience. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. They helped me print our tickets to Warner Studio Tours. They supplied us with endless candy and snacks and were just always looking to make our stay the best it could be. The rooms are dated, but were very clean. The kitchen was...

Although the staff are very accommodating and friendly, I think that for those hoping to book a visit to the Magic Castle itself through this venue it should be noted that you must ASK STAFF TO BOOK YOUR RESERVATION WAY IN ADVANCE. Ensure the reservation is available for your desired date BEFORE you even book the room! I came here...

Dear AVTaylor, I was very sorry to read your review of our hotel. While I’m sorry that the private club, Magic Castle, was sold out on the night you wanted to attend….we do not “dupe” our guests. This is an inaccurate and unfair accusation. The Magic Castle Club, is a private club and a separate organization from the hotel. By...

In spite of the cheesy name, the Magic Castle is, well, magic. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They even assisted me after checkout, when a mad Russian van driver took off with my phone.....breakfast and free laundry service were a hit with me while my seven year old loved the popsicle hotline, the pool and the soft drink...
