This hotel smells bad. Balcony is inaccessible because it is screwed and glued shut. Free breakfast was soda and bread...literally. also the airport shuttle service cost 80$ Roundtrip from LAX and you have to reserve shuttle 24 hours prior which is impossible if you didn't book hotel 24 hours prior. A total nightmare and total false advertising.

arrived at the motel at midnight and after checking in we were told we'd been upgraded to a suite (as we were celebrating 2 mile stone birthdays with a USA multi city trip) we lugged our cases through the rear of the property and down a corridor that smelled dreadful only to find guests still in the room. After apologising... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! I am fully aware that it is a budget hotel and I didn't expect much, but that doesn't mean the service and cleanliness need to be non existent! Room was dirty when we arrived and when I complained I received such bad customer service! I was even hung up on.... More

The property is well kept up with lots of pretty flowers. Nice clean room, 42" TV, fridge, microwave, furniture with plenty of drawer space - I don't know why, but I really like this place and would stay there again. However - no vending or ice machines (go to nearby stores), no tissues in the room, no breakfast room -... More

The hotel's biggest advantage is the location. Located conveniently on Hollywood blvd, just a few steps from Metro station and 1.7 mile walk from Chinese theater. Free parking and WiFi. Front desk staff was very friendly, housekeeping service every day. Old building and rooms but clean.

This was only about 1/2 mile from Chinese Theater, but on a very busy street with lots of road noise. Free parking in back of building and breakfast next door at a restaurant buffet style. We thought it was superb! Owner and staff very nice. Great price. Bad neighborhood, but had no problems. Had hair in bed and on pillow.... More

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.
