The price might make you book your stay, but beware of the smell ! The old gas-heathers in the rooms would make every european fire-fighter scream EVACUATE !!! Apartments with kitchen are roomy, yet depressive, even after remodeling. I LOVE the garden inside and the pool !

You can't beat the location. Easy walk down Orange St and you're on Hollywood Blvd. The rooms are a decent size, we had a 1 bedroom, but the hotel is in desperate need of an upgrade. The carpet in the closet and bedroom was extremely dirty and the room had a musty smell. This is the second time at a... More

From first appearances when approaching the hotel you get the feeling you've got a great little deal on a hidden gem of a hotel ... nice and close to the star walk and all the action, bright and airy foyer with quite a modern and chic feel about it and a lush looking gardened pool area... This is going to... More

We stayed for a Saturday night and were really excited to get such a great location. It is so close to Hollywood and Vine. We have stayed in qute a few Hotels around this area and to be fair - this place is pretty typical. The foyer is open and clean. Gives the impression of a higher level. The rooms... More

Beware! The Highland Hotel is slightly off the beaten path & not worth the effort. The staff was less than helpful, there's no elevators or ramps for luggage & the rooms are pretty awful. The paint is scratched, the baseboard trim is ripped, there's mold in the bathroom. The overall odor in the room is musty. The carpets seems worn... More

Great location for walking to Walk of Fame and seemed very safe. If you are not there for the nostalgia of old Hollywood, you better make sure you get an updated room. Ours was not updated but we loved the fact that Jim Morrison had stayed in this same room in 1967, and most of the room, including the shower,... More

My 2 daughters and I stayed here for 5 nights. We had room with 2 queen beds. It was a big room. It could hold 2 king beds. Bathroom very small and had a pedestal sink, which made it worse because you had no room to even put your toothbrush. The location is perfect for Hollywood Blvd. which we walked... More

My friends and I just finished a week long business trip and the last night was for us. Wow what a really neat place with the feeling a Hollywood star would walk out of a room at any moment. Room was clean, property was well cared for. I have stayed in the area before and all I can say is... More

I selected this hotel based on location; it was nearly next door to the Magic Castle where we planned on dining to celebrate our daughters recent graduation. It is ideal in that and that alone. It went downhill quickly after that. Upon check in, the clerk was too busy to look up for a good 3-4 mins. He was not... More

I arrived early from NYC and had booked here due to my conference Hotel being full. The location could not be better too - close to all the attractions, Runyon Canyon and so forth. The front desk agent was pleasant and they graciously took my luggage so I could go have lunch and wander about whilst waiting to check in.... More
