Great place to stay! Good deals easy to get everywhere you want to go. Good diner with friendly staff even got a discount off the owner. Happy to stay here again if we are in Hollywood for another holiday

The room was clean and looked as thought it had recently been redecorated, but the furniture was a little shabby. Good location for the freeway and the walk of fame, but no good restaurants within walking distance.

Fortunately, your opinion is in the minority as almost all of the reviews we receive are extremely positive. Nevertheless, I value all opinions and take the comments into consideration.... More

We stayed here for 1 night in late March, and we would definitely stay again. Excellent location only a 5 minute walk from the metro rail link. The hotel itself was extremely clean, with spacious rooms and comfy beds. The bathroom was small but clean, with a good shower. The TV had cable with a wide selection of channels. The... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Dunes Inn. The room was lovely, clean and spacious. It was great to have free Wi-Fi. The only downside I found was the location. It's not in a great neighbourhood and I didn't feel safe walking from here to any of the major sites in Hollywood. It's close to many fast food outlets but... More

1st I didn't want to stay because we booked within 2 weeks of being here and the price was high and out of our price range, but we splurged and the friendly staff, awesome maids, free internet, free parking and a comfy small room with a fridge, hot water, and TV(wasn't used, too busy), and clean rooms and beds.

Make sure you know which way to go when leaving the hotel as we ended up downtown in rather dangerous area. Haha. Otherwise the hotel is about 20 mins walk from the walk of fame. Its a great cheap hotel.

Recently stayed at this hotel; great location and neat and tidy accommodation. If I had one request it would be for a shelf to be in the bathroom because whilst showering there is nowhere to put your clean clothing (except on the toilet which is not really appropriate.) We also ate a couple of times and the service was fantastic.... More

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.
