This is such a typical old school American motel. There rooms were nice and had such comfy beds. The location is good where you can arrange for an uber to take you anywhere were it wouldn't take too long. Would stay again when in Los Angeles. Very central

At first when we arrived I was dubious but the staff at the check in and cleaners were efficient and helpful, I had to ask about several things and they were all helpful and I felt safe here and it was a good base. Shame the restaurant next door was being renovated

Free parking, clean rooms and located near all the medical facilities/hospitals on Sunset. Priced for the average person, with numerous restaurants and bars within walking distance. We had two adults and two children in the room that had two full size beds.

This place is close to all tourist attractions and has free parking. The rooms are very clean. Check in/ check out was quick. Free wifi but not secured with a password. It was open!

When I started reading your quite detailed review, I thought it was going to be a positive one but, after the first couple of sentences, you had nothing good to say about the room or the area. Fortunately, not many people share your views, indeed we get a great many reviews that have only good things to say about us.... More

This was a late booking as had to change plans due to family reasons, had actually planned to be in San Diego instead. The hotel itself looks just like one you would see in the movies with the parking lot surrounded by a two story accommodation block. On checking in I was informed the onsite bar/food place was closed for... More

I am sorry that you found very little to like about the hotel, the area and Hollywood in general. We are very fortunate that the vast majority of people who stay with us do not share your views, indeed, we have many guests who not only extend their stay but come and stay with us again. Peter R.

Helpful staff, good location, some really good restaurants towards the Korean Japannese area. The hotel doesn't offer breakfast, but has a good restaurant attached to the hotel where they offer a discount for guests. No pool, but good car parking. Quite close to downtown Hollywood. Hotel rooms and facilities are clean and good.

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.
