“Basic hotel in good location close to strip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

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!

The staff is wonderful especially Travis. The rooms are great, no elevators. You never know who you may see at night. Charlie the ghost stays in the washing room area, and turns the washing machines on with no money, so, talk nice when washing clothes. The washing machines are free after 4 pm. James Dean stayed in room 102 and Marilyn Monroe stayed in room 306. It is close to Hollywood blvd and Sunset, you could walk everywhere, just great

Room Tip: choose James Dean room 102, or Marilyn Monroe room 306. No elevators on floors, rooms have microwa...

The room was dim, decor in nead of renovation, the air com smelled funny and parking is $15 a night. BUt, it had a good fridge, micro, free wifi and the location was good.
There are a few places to eat within a block also a very good value laundry and beer shops within 4 min walk.

Not the best hotel you will ever stay in (by a long way) but its cheep handy and breakfast is included and its ok

3 blocks to the metro 10min walk to the chinese theater one block from hollywood blv easy to get to from freeway.

We had booked and got confirmed a room with an extra bed. When we arrived there was no body at front desk. they had a phone number to call to get help. We could not get the extra bed because they were all already in use. I ask for my money back and they refuse to return it. They offer to give a second bed on the next day but I just did not want to stay in this place. Rooms are super small, and smell really bad on entrance and in the room I was disgusted by this place. This is not a hotel Is more like a motel in the getto side of Hollywood.. at the end they did not return my money and I had to find a new hotel...

I wanted to stay in the same room MM stayed in back in the day. This hotel is exactly 1 block north of Hollywood Blvd. It is an excellent location! Across the street is a convenience store and a pizza place for a quick bite. The room was not decorated but it was clean, and the bed was amazing! I have never slept so good in a hotel. It can get a bit noisy from the club on the corner called Josephs. Which seems to be going 24/7 because on Sunday morning girls were all showing up in their "going out" clothes. In any event turn the AC on and you won't hear a thing. The breakfast is just very simple in a very small area so be prepared to grab and go. The rooms have fridge and microwave. Ask for extra towels for sure. I felt safe and secure in this section of Hollywood and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Location is good. a 5 min walk to Hollywood Blvd, and close to highways if you have a car.
The hotel is located at the eastern part of the Hollywood Blvd, which is not a very safe area at night. But we never felt unsafe, especially that we had our own car and did not walk at night.

The room was very clean. The staff were very helpful. I asked for a hairdryer and a luggage scale, and they were more than helpful in providing them. In general the hotel was good value/money.

Parking is not for free, but this is LA anyway! At least the price was reasonable.
Breakfast is horrible. We ended up skipping it. The hotel does not have an elevator, and I saw other comments asking people to prefer 1st floor rooms. I was given a 1st floor room, and did not like it at all. It felt like sleeping on the street, especially that the windows blinds did not provide much privacy. If you are fit, can carry your bags on the stairs, and you plan to stay for more than one night, choose an upper level room.

Room Tip: Stay at a higher floor if you can carry your bags on the stairs

Excellent location just few yards from Hollywood boulevard. Hotel is nice, clean and quiet and has reasonable sized rooms with comfy beds and plenty of pillows. Bathroom is OK too.They also have a couple of pcs on the lobby which are free to use for 30 min. which comes pretty handy to look for maps on the area etc...although rooms have free Wifi too. And best of it: really cheap prices (considering the excellent location). I was told there was a free breakfast but I missed it.
Also there is a well known 24/7 convenience shop on the corner for late shopping.
I have been here twice and I have no complains at all.
