Everything you want in Hollywood is easily reachable from this hotel. Hop onto the close by metro to reach the walk of fame, Universal Studios or you can even simply hike up to Griffith Observatory from here. The motel's rooms are good to sleep the night through, except if the other residents decide to have a late night chat right... More

We were in town for a concert at the Hollywood bowl. It was a $3.00 uber ride to get there and a nice walk back. We always felt comfortable there. Yes it was an older place but it was perfectly fine and clean and comfortable. I'd recommend it and would stay there again.

A cute looking hotel, but it has a bit of a run down feel. It’s decent hotel considering the location - a 20 minute walk to the Chinese Theatre, not sure it’s the best area, but we felt safe walking after dark. Reception was extremely helpful and nice. The room was clean enough and had a (faux) wooden floor instead... More

I'm not saying it's a halfway house or anything, but it's not the most welcoming place. Even the front desk attendant asks questions suspiciously as if youre up to something untoward. The room is in average condition, better than that of the rest of the place and much better than the check-in office which is in rough shape. Best part... More

Already located on Hollywood Blvd so a 20min walk up the street your right on the walk of fame and the busy footpaths at the Chinese theatre.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
