The outside needs paint but actually has a pool and jacuzzi and clean rooms with mini-fridge for your own food. Only 1 block from Metro Red line Hollywood/Western subway stop which is one stop before Hollywood & Vine and 2 stops from Hollywood & Highland and 3 stops from Universal Studios. Ralph's grocery & mini mall just 1/2 block away... More

This was the last place we stayed at on my wife, son's and my USA Road Trip 2015. The motel is very conveniently located in relation to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese theater, Universal Studios Theme Park and to several Thai restaurants which are just around the corner. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is just two bus stops away... More

The motel is a 2 minute walk from Hollywood/Western (red line on the Metro). As many have said before from the outside this motel does not look up to much but once inside it is a different story. Check in was quick - gave over my name and passport which was photocopied, paid the balance (we had booked through Booking.com)... More

Stayed here for three days in May. Rooms were well kept. Subway one block away, right next to a grocery and about ten Thai restaurants. Obviously, if you're budget allows you may look elsewhere for more amenities but all in all Coral Sands is totally fine. Best part is a ten minute walk to Griffith Park. Did it every morning....

Due to the good rating we decided to book the Coral Sands Motel for our day of arrival. From outside it made a not really maintained impression and could take some beautification work. But the room itself was ok, although quite small. No breakfast but a supermarket next door. Next time we would take a hotel closer to the main... More

First off its a place to lay your head, no more, those people looking for a resort style hotel in the middle of Los Angeles are plain just doing it wrong. That being said there are some issues with this hotel that can make your stay a little uncomfortable. Firstly and most importantly: the shower!! Broken thermostat is my guess... More

Stayed here for 4 nights the place was old old, bed uncomfortable, bathroom tiny, shower was hot one minute, very hot the next and then cold etc. I could expect this quality if we had paid backpacker rates but considering we didn't very disappointed. Location was a 20 minute walk to main part of Hollywood so even the location wasn't... More

After reading the reviews on here I felt this motel would be perfect for our trip to Los Angeles. We were only in town for three nights but we had a pretty packed schedule. Dodgers Game, The Getty, The Farmers Market and Grove, Beverly Hills, Griffith Observatory were all on the list. Needless to say we were not in room... More

(^^To quote the INXS song title). We stayed here for 4 nights in May. The motel was recommended by a work colleague. I knew what to expect so wasn't surprised. Once again (just like all the other hotels on this vacation) we were greeted at check in by a non smiling young man who wouldn't make eye contact, not a... More

The Coral Sands Motel is a more then a decent accommodation. The location is a good starting point to visit the Griffith Observatory, Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood, Paramount studios and close to the 101highway. The room we had was nice and clean and you get free parking.

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.
