Coral Sands is in great location, with easy parking and plenty of it. Room was not large but for 2adult and 2kids out most of day was fine. Friendly staff. Clean and good amenities with daily service. Would recommend. Cheap and cheerful . Nice setting with pool but too cold for us to use. Laundry and microwave and supermarket next... More

We loved our stay here. Easy walk to Griffith Observatory, and Thai Town and many cool bars and restaurants. Comfortable beds, hot tub and pool. Best value and very tranquil. The staff are really nice too!

I enjoyed our stay here. Staff were friendly. Free wifi was ok. I was quite impressed with the room the motel may look old on the outside but it looks really nice inside. A minute walk to subway and supermarket. Not far from the start of the walking park to hollywood sign. Its great having washing machine and dryer coin... More

If you are a budget traveler and want a convenient location then this place is for you. It's 1-2 minutes walk from the subway station (Hollywood/Western station), and 2 stops away from the Walk of Fame and 3 stops away from Universal Studios. There is a Ralphs super market nearby where you get groceries if needed. Starbucks is also near... More

We stayed for two weeks at the Coral Sands whilst on a 5 month world tour! We love Los Angeles and have been countless times! We loved the Coral Sands and believe me we have stayed in many different standards of accommodation as we have travelled extensively not only on this trip! Don't agree with some of the reviews here... More

To be honest I don't know whether to recommend this motel or not. Check-In was very friendly, but reminded us of the 1980s with lots of paperwork to be filled in. The motel has obviously seen better days, however free parking, free wifi and its location within Hollywood seems to attract many price sensitive tourists like ourselves. With just under... More

Finally reached this hotel after an exhausting 12 hour flight and 2 hour drive to find that I had accidentally made our online booking for February instead of March! The man on reception didn't care in the slightest and just made us pay full price all over again. I thought this was pretty mean and was a terrible start to... More

Rooms are tiny, with way too much furniture than necessary. However, rooms and bathrooms were clean if a little dated. Security was around the parking areas at night. Pretty good location close to shops and public transport. Easy to get to from the freeway if driving, but we didn't notice any traffic noise even with a room facing straight onto... More

Easy access to the subway and buses and a quick walk to the walk of fame - though being hollywood it is not the most comfortable walk. Staff were very friendly and helped me book a shuttle to LAX and printed my boarding passes for me. Could use some updating, sqeaky doors and well used rooms. The center garden could... More

Stayed there last week and had a nice stay. The staff is friendly and kind, and they are at the front desk 24 hours which made me feel safer, since the hotel is not exactly in the best area of LA. The area is horrible, but late at night you may want to walk with another person. They have free... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
