We stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel and loved it! The service and amenities is what made our stay fantastic. The negative of our stay was when another guest came and yelled at our kids for being loud in the swimming pool at 8pm. If you hate the sound of children having a fun time then a hotel with a...

Great location, great staff and who can resist a popsicle hotline??? The best customer service you can imagine plus close to all the things you want to see in Hollywood. We are planning a trip back now and won't ever stay anywhere else when in the Hollywood area!

Magic alright!  They did my washing for me and handed out free chocolate! Plus it's a fantastic location close to bus tours, trains and the Hollywood attractions. Rooms are spacious and the pool was pleasant. Staff are helpful. The breakfast was enjoyable and Aussies will be pleased to know they had vegemite and decent coffee. Lots of fun, we'd love... More

Stayed here for our stop over and thought it was good for location and to have a place to leave your bags and checkout LA. Only criticsm would be the loud kids playing in the pool at 11pm which surrounds the hotel rooms

We knew nothing about this Hotel and now I read previous reviews I could agree more with all the reviewers that have rated it excellent. The location is great as a base for LA. You can visit all the major attractions of Hollywood by walking and we visited a lot of other attractions by making a short walk to the... More

Hello Ross T. Thank you so much for writing!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the hotel so much. It's true that we might be a 3-star facility, but that's no reason we can't give a higher level of service! It's more fun that way. We hope to see you again soon! Sincerely Darren Ross More

We stayed here once back in 2011, and visited again in June. The staff was just as friendly as the first time around, and if anything, the service was even better. Is it a fancy hotel? No, but it has everything you need, is conveniently located to all of the area hot spots and landmarks and in clean. Our room... More

Hello Celtic33, Thank you so much for writing a review! Thank you very much returning!!! We love when that happens., I'm glad you kids loved using the Popsicle Hotline!

We stayed here in the middle of Jan 2016 as a family of 5 with 3 children (3, 6, 8). We arrived mid morning following a very early flight from Canada and asked if it was possible to check in early. The staff were very friendly and said they would do their best to have our room ready as soon... More
