I would like to say this is my home away from home but it's more like coming home to visit family because I can show up at anytime day or night without a reservation and know that my "room" is always here for me and it just keeps getting better with the familiar perfume of the garden as I sit...

Very nice staff! Great location! It's impossible to find a better hotel in this price range and this close to the main Hollywood attractions! Very quiet street which offers outlay to most freeways in LA! The hotel is clean and has all the amenities you need for a great vacation stay..

Good location within walking distance to the Chinese theater, Madame Tussauds, the famous Hollywood Star Walk of Fame and other attractions. Plenty of restaurants and bars were nearby. The room itself was good if you are out all day and need a place to sleep. Perhaps a bit more cleaning would've made it a perfect experience.

My son and I went to stay in the room Janis Joplin died in. It's room 105. Perfect location to visit Hollywood and relax later listening to Janis.. The room was huge but could have used a good cleaning. Make sure you sign your name in closet and leave Janis a message.

We stayed here for 5 nights and never had any problems. All we required were the beds and somewhere to shower. We didn't use the kitchen but is was a tad basic. The whole place could do with updating but its probably not at the top of their "To do list". At night we very rarely heard any noise from... More

This hotel has a very convenient location close to the Hollywood and Highland center and the Kodak theater. It is a busy area however, so try to avoid the rooms facing the street as they are very noisy and the traffic never stops. The room seemed very old and in a bad need for an update. As everything is so... More

We stayed here during the 1st week of August in room 108 and had a pleasent check in. Our room was very dated but was large and comfortable. We were given fresh towels every day. The fridge and microwave was handy as there is a CVS pharmacy/supermarket down the street. I didn't like the pool area as it was very... More

It is located a couple blocks away from the walk of fame, restaurants, TCL Chinese Theater. We stayed at room 101 which is next to the public restroom, the smell was not pleasant. The other room we had was 105, apparently this is the room where Janis Joplin died in 1970, there are some hand-writing notes and drawings in the... More

Let’s start with the PROS: Location of the hotel is great. It is within walking distance to all the touristy areas in Hollywood Blvd. The famous Chinese theater is about three blocks away. There are many restaurants and shopping areas nearby. Parking and continental breakfast are included. Front desk staff was very friendly... Well that about summarizes it. Now with... More
