I stayed here after a Expedia muck up, yes that's right Expedia make mistakes, who knew. We asked for something to the same standard as the Sheraton we stayed in the night before.....not quite the same standard at all but confortable. You get what you pay for with this place, but it's close to Hollywood and inexpensive. The staff are... More

First thing I have to say is that we actually didn't stay here or even see the hotel room, so I cannot give my opinion on that. We booked 3 nights through hotwire and when we arrived at the hotel it turned out they had reserved 3 rooms with a king bed each (for 9 guests) which was absolutely nonesense.... More

We were looking for clean, basic, budget accommodation that was reasonably close to the Walk of Fame. We were disappointed with this hotel. The staff wasn't friendly; the decor is dated and ridiculously tacky. This we can deal with but the worst part was that there was a massive wet patch in the carpet that would not go away. There...

we stayed here for a few nights in September 2013. I can definitely say we got what we paid for. The rooms were quite dingy and dark but huge and the beds were very comfy. The pool was closed for our entire visit which was quite annoying as the temperature was around 35C every day and we wanted to cool... More

Location is pretty good, surrounded by a lot of restourants and if you like to walk its like 30 minutes to Hollywood starts. Behind hotel is good free parking , wifi works well , and rooms are spacy and... More

First time on a motel and it was better than I thought. Clean bathroom! The staff were superfriendly!! I recommend this motel if u wanna stay for a few days, it was cheap. We had the Humphrey Bogart room! The only thing that were disturbing was the plastic in the bed.. But comfy👍

This is a motel for the budget traveler. It's got a safe environment, a clean pool, large rooms and fairly new bathrooms. I paid about $85 after taxes for a room with 2 queen beds. There was a mural of Lucielle Ball on the wall, so it had a neat kitsch factor. There was a mini fridge and cups. The... More

So after reading reviews on this place I knew it wasn't going to be the best but I did not expect a dark and dingy room that stank of pee!!! I could have got over the dreadful decor but the smell was overwhelming! I didn't sleep in the sheets and I put a chair under the door as I didn't... More

We were very happy with this place, it was very clean and the rooms were massive. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The guy at the front counter was so helpful, he even let us leave out surfboard in storage. Breakfast was basic but free, also free wifi. The neighbour was safe to walk around and shops were close...

I have just returned from a trip to LA having stayed in this motel for 9 nights. I was a bit anxious having seen a number of other reviews, but one arrived it was better than expected. Don't get me wrong, this is by no means hotel standard but it looks to be one of the better motels in the... More
