Without a doubt, the best hotel of our 6 week US trip. The hotel is partially owned by Australians from what I understand, and just the fact that they had vegemite at breakfast made us feel at home. Every staff member went out of their way to fulfil any requests we had, even down to accepting an oversized package for... More

Thank you so much for your review. We are not owned by an Australian. The hotel is owned by an American family. I own Service Freak Hospitality, which leases and operates the hotel. I was born right here in Los Angeles:) We do have quite a few Australians staying with us lately, which is why have the Vegemite for those... More

I stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel for a week with three other friends and from the minute we arrived to the minute we left, the experience was perfect. The hotel itself is cute, very clean and welcoming. Nothing super fancy, but just what we needed for a nice stay. Any time we were out of something, we'd call and... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks with my girlfriend and right from the jump we were impressed. Cheap parking, prime location and extremely friendly staff. We were offered to have the staff get our groceries for us by the manager Darren who also provided us with some great beverages. They ordered our dinners sorted out activities and each morning your... More

"This is the nicest poorly maintained hotel I've ever stayed at." - Grandma To be clear: we will be back. The service, amenities, and general feel were great for us. Families with kids, couples, and a touring dance group were all mixed together. I lost track of how many languages I heard the guests speaking. The popcicle hotline works flawlessly.... More

Hi there, Thank you so much for writing about your experience with us. Of course I was very happy to read that you enjoyed some of the fun amenities we're offering. Our new complimentary soft service ice cream seems to be a hit, and yes....the popsicle hot line is fun too. I was very concerned to read about the maintenance... More

My family and I spent 3 days at the Magic Castle Hotel. It is a cool place to stay. The staff is, perhaps, the friendliest staff that I have interacted with - from the front desk, to the maids to the maintenance folks we passed, everyone was very nice. This is a very kids friendly place - popsicles at the... More

From the moment we stepped into this hotel (totally jet-lagged) we were greeted by the beautiful staff at the Magic Castle. Funny, friendly and so helpful, Nick was a pleasure to chat to after an awful 14 hour flight from Australia. The ghastly yellow colour of the hotel only adds to the charm of the place and the lovely gift... More

The reviews are very accurate, this is a great hotel, and yes it does have a "poolside Popsicle hotline" (and it does work! LOL). This hotel has a great location, it is a couple of blocks from Sunset Blvd, and it also has secured parking if you have a rental. I had my two girls (12 and 14) with me,... More
