The hotel has a new name. It is not a Comfort Suites. Very Basic, furniture is been painted to look like an update has been done. Rooms are small. Beds not very comfortable. Staff was friendly, the room was just not what I expected.

Seriously.. the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. Booked this hotel through a 3rd party website for an extended weekend. After arriving to LA and finally finding the hotel, the first thing we noticed was that this was NOT a Comfort Inn. Website, pictures on the internet.. everything says Comfort Inn.. but CURRENTLY (October 17th,2015) it is... More

My husband and I decided to stay here after we arrived a day earlier than expected. The hotel we had booked the next night was full, so we picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced. Big mistake. The service wasn't terrible or anything; the hotel is rundown and dingy. The hallway to our room was dark and scary, like... More

We travelled from South Africa and had a poor exchange rate to deal with. This hotel provided the basics that we needed at an affordable price. There are no fancy trims and the breakfast is very simple, something which we didn't partake of. Despite the hotel being located close to Hollywood Boulevard and the fun action spots you are not...

The person in front counter was rude, he never did eye contact when you talk him. The hotel is not so great, kind of old. But again, the worst thing, and that will never return here is because the horrible service. The breakfast time is to short from 6 to 9, so you have to wake up early if you... More

Good inside, very clean and comfortable. Very expensive but so was everything else in the area. Area a little sketchy. If you have to stay in the area or your budget is limited this is a good option. Breakfast was good

Although we had a slow start with check in (desk clerk was extremely slow and actually made us wait while he took a call and booked a room over the phone while he was in the middle of checking us in!), once we received our keys, things took a turn for the better. We stayed in room 222 which has... More

This location is a big priviledge for a traveller. TIP:instead of spending money to taxis for/ from LAX airport which costs at least 75$ οne way, use the LAXflyAway shuttle paying only 8$ one way.It has several convinient stops along the L.A. Cal+18664359525 or google LAXFlyAway for details.

I've always had a great experience when staying at Comfort Inn Properties...but this is a disappointment. ..seems understaffed and worn out...room was musty, rugs are embarrassing, lobby is a disgrace. ..should be closed down for renovation. ...

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.
