“Can't Beat the Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We've now stayed in Los Feliz Lodge twice: once in the Red Casita and once in Villa 1503. I've also seen the inside of the Green Casita when a friend stayed there. Overall, the location is excellent--walking distance to Sunset Junction and pretty convenient to everywhere in East and Central LA. The decor is fun, modern, and hip, and the keyless gate system, free Wi-Fi, and fairly reliable street parking (just be sure to read the signs about street cleaning!) check all the major boxes. As many other reviewers have said, you feel like you're staying in your own, well-decorated apartment in one of LA's nicest and loveliest areas. I have gone for jogs around the neighborhood on both of my visits and always felt safe and enjoyed checking out the real estate and scenery along the way. And best of all, the price is right--very reasonable for LA.

Contrary to what the pricing suggests, though, I'd recommend you go for one of the casitas. Villa 1503, while HUGE and decorated thoughtfully, just felt a bit more worn-out than the casitas did. It smelled really musty, and the air conditioner struggled (LOUDLY) through dusty vents; the towels were stiff and smelled mildewy; the sugar in the kitchen was caked into a solid chunk in the container; the shower drained very slowly; the fridge had clearly not been cleaned; the informational binder was falling apart; the iron's steam function was broken; and when we moved the bedside table to plug in our chargers, it was pretty grimy and dusty back there. None of these things were deal-breakers by any means, but added up, they were an indication of less attention to detail overall. I kept feeling reminded that I wasn't paying a lot for my accommodations.

I'll definitely stay there again for the location alone, but I will request a casita (the Red Casita was our favorite). A solid 3.5-4 stars.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the casitas: while smaller, they seem to be fresher and more recently updated.

I loved my stay at the Los Feliz Lodge. Perfect location and a perfect room with all the best facilities and amenities.

Above all I was really grateful for the service provided by Jacob and staff.

I can't wait to stay there again and will be recommending it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Stayed in the 'Green Casita' which was lovely for one person travelling or a couple. Great k...

What a great place. All the home comforts you could want.
After a long day driving it's great to arrive here. In an area where you leave the car for a while and go for a walk. So many nice shops and food on your doorstep. Free parking also, with loads of spaces.

We stumbled upon this place in June when a family emergency required us to be close to the hospital . Now we would not stay anywhere else when we visit Los Angeles .This time we stayed in the green casitta. The place is a home away from home, IMMACULATE, fully stocked with appliances and utensils a short walk to Vons supermarket, a beautiful movie theatre , coffee shops etc. We love the outside area that is private. This place is a home away from home in the middle of a residential area. The unit has a bedroom a living room and full kitchen. the bathroom is stocked with soap and shampoo, thick towels. I live a tidy life and this place ticks off all my needs. Immaculate,cozy, private yet close to everything Especially my son and his family.

Room Tip: All units are wonderful we are only two people so we stay in the smallest unit this time. In june w...

While traveling through LA, we wanted to stay in a non-traditional hotel. Having stayed in a "suite" with home-like accommodations, we were looking for something similar. Los Feliz Lodges was just what we were looking for (and then some).

Notables:
Nicely decorated and clean
Close to neighborhood groceries and restaurants
Dish and silverware available (perfect for take-out meals)
Close to Hollywood and Griffith Park
Street-parking (wasn't much of an issue for us)
Owner (Jacob) made himself very available
...He gave me his cell phone number so I could call him or text him as needed
Top-notch customer service
...I texted Jacob about an HDMI cable for the TV, he brought it over within minutes.
...The dining recommendations in the binder were spot-on and extensive (with menus from nearby areas)

This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for a place that makes you feel like you live in LA (and not just a touring).

The owners were super on top of everything and made it easy for reservations and access to the property. We stayed in Villa 1503. The place was very thoughtfully decorated, from the painting on the walls to the eclectic art to the books chosen to display on the bookshelf. They also provided reusable shopping bags and a yoga mat. Reading lights are on both sides of the bed.

There was a good amount of space for two people, although the bathroom is small. As with many of these older properties there are some quirky features which at the same time add a degree of charm.

Minuses include noisy air conditioners and not great parking. One must remember when the street cleaners are coming and on which side of the street.

The location was perfect for visiting our daughter and was close for exploring the Silver Lake area. I recommend Los Feliz Lodge if you don't want luxurious accommodations and want to stay in this area.

Great alternative to a hotel - infact, it was like being at home! Great location, price and facilities.

We got stung by the parking situation and a $100 parking ticket when we forgot about the road cleaning!
