We stayed at Angelfish for a week in January with our two young kids. Angelfish is located on a quiet street that doesn't get a lot of car or street traffic, and it is literally steps from the wonderful Hollywood Broadwalk and beach.
Every morning my daughter and I walked over to the beach to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic, as we drank tea and milk in one of the many cafes lining the Broadwalk. Then we would walk to one of several beach-side playgrounds for some more early morning fun. All within a 2 minute walk of our room!
It is a small motel-like property, which means you won't get daily room service or other amenities of a large hotel. But the owner, Karin, was always around, extremely friendly, and very very responsive to our needs (and with young kids, we had a few). She could not have been more hospitable to us. Thank you!
There is a wonderful garden courtyard where we ate breakfast in the morning and watched the turtles and fish in the pond.
I feel like Angelfish offers a really great value for being a charming, clean, comfortable, homy place so close to the beach, with free parking and internet access. Before coming to Hollywood we thought not having a pool would be a downside, but you are literally just steps from warm ocean water (and the outdoor pools we saw at some of the other small area hotels weren't exactly attractive).....
We hope to stay here again in the future!
