stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be clean + secure and an inexpensive place to stay. the 'decor' needs a bit of TLC - it could look really cool as it has an awesome mid century retro design. the owners were very friendly and helpful and the hotel has a driver service (not free, but handy -...

I travel in a rock band. Our daily hotel routine consists of showing up super late/early, checking out late, 40ft parking accomodation for starters;) This hotel has gone above and beyond to accomodate our situation. Even gave us a sweet balcony room in order to keep an eye on our equipment trailer. Great location and great people. Very rare!

I needed a place to stay for for 2 days and the price was reasonable for a Hollywood motel with parking. After reading mixed reviews, I was a bit hesitant but was pleased with this hotel. The manager was friendly and recommended some tourist sites and restaurants; we took his suggestion to eat at The Palms which served very good... More

This hotel/Inn was comfortable and simple. Free delicious breakfast at the House of Tacos....nice sized swimming pool to enjoy, and clean rooms. We were treated to a suite which we loved!! My son had his own room with a balcony to hang out in at night to watch the nightlife of Hollywood, and our accomodations were clean and comfortable. I... More

Pulled pork that was slow cooked, seasoned hamburger, ham, rice, beans, waffles, cereal, potatoes and eggs and more. Free pool table. Cook and waiter so nice plea sent atmosphere. So glad we... More

This hotel was good and close to all amenities the only thing that lets it down is the breakfast which is served two doors up at the Taco Bell. It says the Taco Bell opens at 7.30 am but the guy (who is quite rude) who runs it opens when HE feels like it and half of the time when... More

There is both good news and bad news to share about this motel. The good news is that the staff is friendly and helpful with a good sense of humor. The location is also good if you want to be close to the "action" of Hollywood. There is a small pool that provides a little oasis for kids and those... More

This motel is just off Hollywood Blvd so location is great. There is a metro station 5 mins walk away if you are not driving. The rooms are very clean and basic, TV, cable, WiFi, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Nice little pool. Breakfast is included in price and is served a couple of doors down in a taco restaurant....
