Clean and basic but more than adequate for a short stay and I would use again There are few places to stay I this part of Whittier but this is the one I would recommend. Not many places to eat close by but short rise will take you to most outlets

This is more of a motel. It doesn't have any frills, but does have recently renovated rooms that are clean, quite and the bed was comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and we were happy with our choice of this motel. It was a good value. The only issue we had was that the tub and sink were slow to drain.... More

This place is a bit intimidating when you initially drive up. Looks clean but looks a bit dated on the outside. That doesn't matter though when you walk through the door. The room was remodeled and looked great!!! There is not many choices when looking for a place in Whittier, but this is the BEST!. They were very nice, accommodating... More

The place is shabby and dated. There are no frills. Handles were falling off of the sink vanity, and the refrigerator was leaking all over the carpet. The apparent residents of the hotel appeared to be done on their luck. Although the place is centrally located, we should have turned around and left when the desk person spoke to us... More

We stayed 5 nights and was happy with our decision to stay here. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I liked the shower; it was nice and large with a great shower head and water pressure. The sink area though is small but still big enough to accommodate all our toiletries. There were no towel bars... More

I visited what was once my home town (Whittier). The Friendly Hills Inn provided the basics with clean rooms, great prices and friendly service. It's located near Uptown Whittier. The Mexican restaurant next door is also a great place to eat.

Got bad vibes from front desk guy immediately. A friend I had'nt seen in years came to visit only to be chased away, he was told no visitors allowed unless he wanted to pay $70. More like a prison than a hotel.

Me and my family stayed in this inn. Its cheap and somehow neat. What made me decide to never ever come back is the manager/front desk. He is VERY RUDE. Raises voice to costumers. No costumer service at all. He even told us that our room is dirty while we only stay there to sleep. We asked for our comforter... More

This is a perfectly-ok inexpensive hotel, in my opinion. I did not think it was anything special, but the staff were all very courteous and pleasant, the accomodations were adequate, and overall it was a good value for the low price. The pool is tiny and uninviting - but that was no big deal for us.
