If you know what to expect before you come to Holloway Motel then you will make your life and your stay much more pleasant. First and foremost, this is a motel. It's not a hotel. The motel is old and definitely needs some repair but if you're going to be staying here hopefully you won't be speding much time in the room. After reading all of the horror stories about the manager and staff here, I wasn't sure what to expect. My check-in was quick and painless and I talked to both the guy at the window as well as the manager. No problems there. The room, as I said, is old. The carpet was worn, the bed was as basic as it gets, the shower door was broken and didn't close BUT the water pressure in the shower was better than many places I've stayed at. The rooms are very small. If you're in the area to go bar hoping and just want a place to crash, this is ideal. If you want a nice relaxing hotel, go somewhere else. One other thing to be aware of is that the walls are paper thin and the motel is located right next to Barney's Beanery (which will provide the many drunk people) and the IHOP that all the drunks go to after the bars close at 2am. Quiet? Notsomuch.
So again, don't expect this to be a nice relaxing hotel. It's a great location that will give you quick access to the West Hollywood bars and clubs but that's about it. As for all the bad reviews about the manager, I'm guessing many of these people created the problems themselves. Be nice and respectful and I'm sure you'll get the same back. I did.
