Basic hotel but we could walk to Boulevard. Restaurant under construction but in theory could get refreshments/breakfast at nearby cafe. Unfortunately opening hours were a bit erratic (they were open for a late beer and snack when we arrived) but not open for breakfast earl y enough on Sunday! But found we could walk to local coffee/bagel/doughnut place. Reception helpful... More

I stayed here last week and was pleasantly surprised! We booked the hotel through hotwire so we weren't sure what we were getting. I was pleased with the free parking. I fell in love with the lobby. It was old Hollywood style, very quaint. If you like posh and modern, this is not the place for you. But if you... More

I slept in the queen size bedroom, the room was quite small and the smell was not very nice, you can tell this hotel has seen better days. But the staff was very friendly and the lobby is impressive, in general the hotel is ok but no more than that. The room is not too pricy considered the area.

I booked this hotel for two nights. Claimed to be a 3 1/2 star hotel, wouldn't give it more then 2. This first thing you notice is the smell. The entire hotel stank of mildew. The rooms were very small with windows that had no screen. The air conditioner barely worked and it was very hot in the room. The... More

Very nice hotel. We were a little worried at first by the old look of the hallway, but when we walked inside the room it was very nice. Loved the view from our room, we could see the Hollywood sign. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi was limited on the 3rd floor, but signal was strong by room door. The... More

Stayed for three nights as first part of our honeymoon, checked in rather late due to a late flight but had absolutely no problems, front desk staff were extremely helpful in giving us some information on where to grab some early breakfast the next day. Rooms fairly basic but clean and comfortable so no complaints there, we walked into the... More

After reading other reviews I worried slightly about staying here and yes it is old fashioned, rooms are basic but your staying on Melrose Avenue. 2 blocks away from Paramount Pictures and seconds from the main roads to get to all the touristy places! Putting thing into perspective for the money you are paying you can't expect a 5 star... More

Got to the hotel around 11:50pm and was told "since you didn't arrive by 7pm we gave your room away, and we don't have anything available". Was told we had to find a place for... More
