My son & I were on a college visit and highland gardens was one of the recommended hotels from the school. The hotel is dated and older but it was clean, & roomy. There was a full kitchen & the balcony ran the entire length of the bedroom & kitchen. It overlooked a garden area with beautiful trees & greenery.... More

This hotel as so much promise, the rooms are so large and if you are lucky you get a newly remodelled room. HOWEVER... The internet is shocking throughout the hotel, a lot of the rooms are old so have noisy appliances (I had to move rooms) the older rooms smell and the fresh towels I had in my bathroom were... More

The location is good, not far from the main attractions. Good restaurant closeby. The decor is rather 1980's and our room was not that clean (bathroom had mold). Hotelstaf was correct but not really welcoming. Price is rather expensive for the quality.

The staff were great, offering lots of advice on where to go, where to eat etc. Room 111, which had a kitchen too. The shower head is only good if you're shorter than 4' 11". The taps aren't great either. The bed nearest the window squeaks so loudly it wakes everyone up. The road is a bit noisy and several... More

The hotel is within walking distance of Hollywood walk of fame and primary attractions around this area. Pricewise, it is acceptable for the area. There is a swimming pool. Rooms are spacious. Breakfast room is small and fits about 6-10 and it is very basic cold breakfast. But I guess this is what it is and serves the purpose for... More

I have stayed at the Highland Gardens Hotel on numerous occasions, and have always received an excellent reception from the owner, Marie, and Front Desk Receptionist, Jamie Vega. The hotel has been renovated and both my daughter and I were very pleasantly surprised and happy with our room. It was clean and comfortable and there were loads of closet space.... More

There is not much good, but let's start with the little there is. The lobby looks good. Location is excellent for visiting Hollywood. I'm sure that is all that keeps this place open. Oh and the pool area is pleasant. There is a minimal free breakfast. That's it. Now the bad. The rooms are old, with a half heated attempt... More

After a 12 hour trip arriving at 10pm I do not expect the service and poor condition this hotel has to offer. Garage is dingy and crawls out into patio area on old staircase. Peeling paint in passage and doors tells a story of low maintenance. Biggish room, kitchenette and dressing room. Few power points an the one open in... More
