This hotel was the last stop on our 5 week long vacation and we had stayed in many other hotels. This was the second to worst. The room is clean, but very outdated, pretty sure the bed spread was from the 60's. The chairs in the room maybe from the 70's. It definitely needs an upgrade. The bathroom looked like... More

We picked this hotel because of it's close proximity to the Hollywood bowl. It's located just of the 101 so really easy to get to. The rooms and bathrooms are ok and so is the service. Everything is just a bit better than average but you won't get the wow effect like you do in some of the more luxurious... More

Thank you for your kind review of our hotel. We get very many reviews, mostly favorable, and quite a few comment on the cost. Some say it is a bit high but the vast majority say the prices are reasonable, considering our prime location.I suppose it depends on the individual's idea of what is expensive and what is not.

Stayed here for one night in early Septebmer 2016. Room was clean and in reasonable shape. I liked that the hotel enclosed the parking lot. I felt a bit safer with that arrangement. No breakfast here and the restaurant attached to the hotel was closed. We walked down to McDonalds for breakfast. This place is at least a mile from... More

I payed 140 a night for a 3 star hotel on hotwire but only got this. I could spend the same amount of money a lot better than this. And the restaurant is not even open.

Stayed 4 nights with my husband Room was comfortable but not very spacious. Front desk was friendly . Close to Hollywood 15 minute walk to Walk of Fame. It is in an area that is very "downtown " old area of Hollywood Wouldn't advise to walk around the area late at night..quiet a few homeless people around the area.

Very nice front desk person behind protective glass. Room w/ double beds was $220-dark & depressing. Left and went to The Grafton which was fabulous boutique hotel on Sunset for $279. The Dunes is a drive up motel and should be far cheaper.

Stayed here 2 nights. Rooms were clean and nice enough. Great location. Not even a 5 minute drive to Universal Studios and plenty of restaurants to try around the Inn. Close enough to Hollywood Blvd, we caught the train to the Chinese Theatre to have a wonder around. Train Station is about 2 minute walk from the Inn

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.
