We stayed here for 4 nights in late September. We were travelling around the west coast and made this hotel our base to explore LA.
Firstly, this hotel is too far out if you want to explore Hollywood and the beaches. It is only around 33 miles to Hollywood but with LA traffic took us around an hour, although parking is not as expensive in Hollywood as you would expect and easy enough to find.
We arrived at the Pepper Tree around 8pm and were greeted by very friendly reception staff. The staff are a credit to this hotel. The hotel is a quaint rustic Spanish style that I loved.
We were given 301 which faced the car park on the back of the hotel. The room was large, kingsize bed, sofa, kitchen, fridge, large wardrobes, desk etc. I would stay that if you are using this hotel on holiday, it's a little too equipped. We didn't use the kitchen at all or the full size fridge. From talking to the staff on reception, the hotel is used a lot for extended stays, people in between houses, people who have moved to LA and don't have a place to live yet, they even have a few rooms occupied by retired people who live there! Condition of room was poor. Curtains had food on them. Kitchen had crumbs down side of cupboards. Pans and pots tired and well worn. Bed sheets very dirty, had yellow stains, had to get clean ones from reception. Large stain on sofa cover. Tv old and not very good. Air con very noisy. Fridge noisy. Large patio windows were thin glass, you could hear everything outside.
It depends on why your visiting this hotel. Extended stays, yes. Holidaying, probably no. It's cheap enough and the area is safe and has lots of shops and restaurants. However, if the rooms are being used on a long term basis, then they are bound to get worn and dirt ingrained in. Maybe it needs more of a deep clean after the room has been occupied for a few months and furniture covers and kitchen utensils need replacing when unable to get clean.
Overall, an ok stay. However, with bits and pieces changed and cleaned and updated, this hotel could be amazing! But then it wouldn't be as cheap!
