The whole collection of buildings needs a serious rehab. At 2am a deafening electric motor revved up and continued for what seemed like an hour. Breakfast is no more than coffee and stale pastries. But it IS in West Hollywood near everything. For the money I'd prefer to stay at the Ramada.

So I've been here many times before back when this hotel was the San Vicente Inn. I was sad to hear this hotel had changed from clothing optional to not. But in the end my stay was better than ever. No more worrying about drug dealers running around as there were none. It was nice and peaceful out. I got... More

We only stayed at this hotel for four nights, but we quickly learned to love some parts about it and got disturbed by some: + Location, location, location. Could not be better if you like West Hollywood! + Atmosphere - cozy little resort with a nice pool, lounge area and suitable back ground music + Large rooms, or should I... More

I traveled to LA from San Diego and needed an economical place to sleep. The SVB was extremely affordable and I stayed in a bungalow with a king size bed and private bathroom. The room was clean but it did need some work to make it seem less careworn. The attendance were friendly and accommodating. Parking was a premium and... More

Very good value for the price. The location in West Hollywood is very good. The staff was efficient and help, if not over-friendly. The room was refurbished, but clean. Not the Ritz-Carlton except for the pricing which is at an affordable level that more than covers any shortcomings. I would recommend this if money is a prime consideration or for... More

My partner and I found this hidden gem online and are so incredibly happy we chose to spend 4 nights here. The west hollywood location was absolutely perfect. Central for all sorts of tourist adventures. Lots of great restaurants, bars and shopping in both directions. The staff were incredibly friendly and truly do an amazing job of making the place...

My husband and I were greeted by a very businesslike, brusk young woman. We were given an ugly room that didn't have any clothing storage. The "closet" had one hanger, and there were no drawers or a bureau. The towel rack is not near the sink. The toilet stall had no wastebasket. The lighting was poor in general. I guess... More

In the Heart of WeHo this courtyard surrounded by charming bungalow cottages is so pretty you will never know the busy town is right outside. SV Bungalows helped me during a move back to LA and the transition was smooth even during a busy Labor Day Weekend, me with two dogs and the summer heat. I was safe, comfortable and... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
