I mistakenly overbooked the rooms. The receptionist, Tito offered the refund without fee. He also recommended the StartSight tour which we enjoyed every much. My two full-size bedroom room has enough space for microwave and refrigerator. If you plan to spend most time outdoor activities then this hotel could be a great affordable choice to rest at night.

The main complaint I had about this property was the hard mattress. It wasn't like you could feel the springs or anything. But it was just very hard and it hurt my back. I had to ask for 2 extra blankets which I ended up sleeping on top of just to provide some cushioning to the mattress. I asked if... More

A good value option, well-located to explore the strip. Very friendly and helpful staff, a good but very basic breakfast included in the rate and free parking. Decent sized room, clean and quiet. Would return again.

We stay at this motel whenever we visit our son. Our room (117) is large, clean and very quiet. The staff has been very friendly and helpful. The bed is very comfortable. The pool is clean and inviting. The location is great and the free off street parking is a real plus. A great value for the money.

If your looking for a cheap hotel situated within walking distance of Hollywood walk of fame then it's perfect. The accommodation is basic but acceptable. The pool is very small. The staff are not very helpful, one member who was in my room spilled water in my suitcase and wet all my clothes and when I complained they were not... More

This is definitely budget accommodation and is fine considering the price if you plan to only use the hotel for sleep at the end of a long day sightseeing. The hotel is centrally located and only a short walk to the Hollywood strip. There's cheap food close by like Ihop, in&out ect & there's also a hop-on hop-off bus stop... More

Saharan Motor Hotel, L.A. is one of the worst hotel I have ever been. It's noisy, surrounded by homeless, the toilet didn't work. We made many calls to fix it. Finally when they came, they couldn't fix it. They promised another room, but they didn't deliver it. We choose this specific hotel because it is close to a place we... More

Cons : -zero isolation between the rooms -if you like to sleep in the dark dont count on that there -bathroom is bad (shower debit, ventilation) -room smells funny -the people working there (those behind the desk especially) are totally,I repeat, totally unfriendly! Pros : location 10min walk from hollywood blvd, free parking, night guardian is really a nice guy

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
