My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. It is a very basic hotel and the decor could do with a bit of a upgrade and repaint. We stayed in room 101 which was reportedly the room James Dean stayed in. We were a little worried about noise as it was right at the bottom of the stairwell by the main entrance and breakfast area but we didn't really find it a problem accept for occasional noise from the room above us.
Yes, breakfast is very minimal and there is not enough space for people to eat. In that regard, having a room so close was a bonus as we just ate it in our room.
The location is pretty good. One block away from the walk of fame and close to many attractions. It is also close to the underground and only one or two stops from Universal Studios. Getting to Disney land takes longer, but word of advice- dont bother taking coach to get to Disney. You pay over the odds and have to leave the park quite early. Instead take the tube and a bus (you can get all details from tourist information office by tube station). It only takes a few minutes more journey wise and is a fraction of the price. Also you get mire flexibility to come and go as you please.
In all, for the price we paid this was an ok hotel. The area seemed pretty safe and quiet but you are close to everything Las Vegas is famous for!
