Just returned from a two week vacation in Los Angeles spending 10 nights at this wonderful establishment. The staff were great, be it at reception or the ladies cleaning the room. Our belongings and Car were perfectly secure. When travelling to a tourist trap like Los Angeles, all you need is a place to store your luggage, a bed for... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It was very inexpensive and has free parking which is unheard of in L.A. It offers smaller but clean and comfortable rooms. It had free wi-fi however it was very slow. Obviously this is not a five star property so you have to set your expectations accordingly, however, if you are looking... More

There is no lift, so if you are travelling for a long time and have large suitcases- request a ground floor room ahead of time! Wifi did not work for us in our room, unless we were right by the door. On a more positive note- the room was tidy, included a fridge and hotel was in a good location... More

As the hotel only has a ground floor and 1st floor, the planners did not think an elevator was necessary but I fully understand the inconvenience of carrying heavy luggage up even one flight of stairs. We do try and accommodate the guests wishes wherever possible and a ground floor room is preferred, and there is one available, we will... More

Wonderful everything...will definately stay there again. The service was at times slow from the hotel reception staff. The food in the restaurant was delightful. The hot chocolates were one of the best we had in America. Will definitely go again.

Hmmm--the front desk guy was less than friendly and welcoming. He was quite defensive when I asked for some suggestions for breakfast. He suggested their own diner and when I said, OK, what else? When I did, he was quite put out. So we went there to give it a try--don't bother--as the service was deadly slow, the bacon was... More

This place is clean, convenient, affordable, comfortable and friendly. Quality food and superb service at the adjoining eatery. Met the owners, John and wife Queenie, at breakfast. Very warm and funny.

A blast from the past with the two story, car parked in front of your room set up. It has been updated with new comfy beds, granite sink, new tub, modern tile shower and floors.

But not by me. Arrived early to learn my reservation had been cancelled a week earlier. No record of how or who did it, and they were full house for that night. They placed us at another property 3 miles away which was not as convenient to the event we were attending. Will not trust these people to get it... More

I can only apologize for the inconvenience that this mix up caused you. A reservation can be cancelled a number of different ways but there is usually a paper trail so I can only assume that the cancellation was made over the phone. Human error can also be the reason in that whoever took the phone call cancelled your booking... 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.
