after a week at the Luxor in Las Vegas my wife and I were not expecting anything in the way of luxury from the Downtowner but we were pleasantly surprised by the charm of the place and found it just what we wanted for a couple of nights. The room 12A was upstairs at the back overlooking the pool and... More

We stayed here in April 2006 - 2 adults & 2 children. It was the worst hotel / Inn that I have ever stayed in and would not recommend it to anyone. There were bedbugs in the bed , blood stains on the sheets. I was bitten a few times and broke out in hives for my entire stay in... More

Last Visit:September 2006. The hotel is not clean. We were bitten by bed bugs in Room 6 on Sep 1st 2006. We killed about two dozen bugs which left blood marks everywhere on the bed sheets. The hotel managers blamed that the bugs were brought in by the guests who stayed in the room earlier. I don't believe him at... More

Whilst I agree with some of the previous postings about the noise, dodgy surroundings and stale rooms, the big plus this motel has going for it is the great customer service. A great warm welcome in a city that can sometimes be a touch cold, intimidating and too cool for school (see The Vibe Motel). No great bars nearby but... More

OK I am going to try and point out both positive and negative aspects of this motel (it is not a hotel, this is drive up in your car to room motel kind of place). Which was my first problem with the surrounding area; I arrived from downtown via the subway and this was my first visit to Hollywood. Well... More

The pictures that show the exterior and interior of the Hollywood Downtower were VERY MISLEADING. Our room had NO SHOWERHEAD, a huge black stain on the carpet, multiple broken lamps with disgusting stained lamp shades and dirty laundry left behind by previous guests. The other tenants were inconsiderate of others, making extreme amounts of noise at 3,4,5AM!!! At one point,... More

If saving money is your priority, this is a great option. Nice staff, free breakfast, HBO on the tube, Metro station and buses just outside. Some folks will find the neighborhood a bit dicey, and if you are sensitive to noise, get a room away from the street (or if you like to watch cars drive by, get a room... More

The hotel is quite old, but they seem to have done some basic renovations to the rooms and courtyard: new Bathroom tile and fixtures, new carpet. The furniture is still very 1960s. The staff seems to be an Indian family--I found the staff to be quite helpful. The location is OK for a budget hotel, but you can find better... 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.
