Positves: 1) Nice Spacious & clean Rooms 2) Staff was very friendly & helpull. 3) Complimentary Snacks & Sodas was a hit :). 4) Vicinity to Hollywood Boulevard. Sugestions: 1) Carpet in room was something we missed. 2) Being a universal breakfast, option of egg or omelette in breakfast would have been better.

Hotel's Favorite
We checked out the other day and already miss this place. The service by all the crew at Magic Castle could not have done anymore to make our stay more enjoyable! You really have to hand it to this crew and management for the lengths they go to make you feel at home even though you are a world away from it. Personaly, and i say this with full respect to all at this place, a big shout out to Alexandria who really engaged with my kids whenever we got the chance to catch up. A++++++ Quick note Australians must love this place as a lot of aussies where stating at this hotel. The breakfast were great annd the kids (ok adults too) lovvvveeeeddd the free snacks, candy, sodas, and ice cream. The dial up popsicle service pool side is very unique and the kids loved it. Location wise......well what could i say. Literally a three minute walk to Hollywood Blvd with all its entertainment and food options. Its unbeatable!. Universal studios is only a quick drive away and the staff will help you find your way with a cab etc. Our room was great and cleaned daily to a fantastic level. People.......do yourselves a favour and stop searching for another hotel. If your looking for a great hotel with all the little extras at a great price this is it! We will be back you can count on that Bye for now Chris Musetta Noah and Luca Debrincat

Response from HotelManager, Owner at Magic Castle Hotel
Responded Oct 3, 2018
Hello Chris and Luca, Thank you so much for this review! We're so happy you loved it so much! Yes...Alexandria is pretty amazing. She's been a part of our team for several years now and is definitely a super star with kids! I'm so glad that your kids (and you:)) enjoyed the free snacks, free soft serve ice cream, free soda machine, and of course.....the popsicle hotline! Our newest service is free coffee delivered to your room!!! Just press "0" and ask for coffee. We'll bring you a fresh pot of brewed coffee, at no charge!!! Come back and try it out. Thank you both! Much appreciated. Sincerely Darren

When I started booking our holiday I booked the Magic Castle, cancelled it and booked the Loews and then ended up back at the Magic Castle and we weren’t disappointed!! The hotel has a retro feel about it that really adds to the charm particularly around the inner court yard/pool area. We had a first floor, one bedroom “suite” with a kitchen, no balcony and fronting onto the main road - room was massive, clean and had everything we needed, we didn’t find the road an issue - I am a light sleeper and can’t say I noticed it!! Many of the fixtures looked original and whilst that adds to that “retro feeling” there are things that I felt needed updating - in the bathroom there was a heating element that looked like it had not been updated since the 1940’s - I had no reason to believe it had not been tested etc but I wasn’t confident in the way it looked so we didn’t use it!! Hotel has parking onsite which is reasonably priced and is really well located for Chinese Theatre/Walk of Fame. Feels like they have tried to think of everything they can to make your stay comfortable - breakfast, snacks, afternoon tea, ice cream, take away menus if you need them, laundry done - the list goes on!!! What is not there already they would try and get for you staff were really accommodating!!! Of the hotels we stayed in during a three week trip this was a favourite - particularly with a teenager who loved having snacks on tap!!

I am a travel agent in Australia and have stayed in many hotels before, i wasn't too sure what to expect at the Magic Castle, however from the time we arrived getting to choose our room with a balcony, all the staff we dealt with, the helpfulness, recommendations, not to mention the Popsicle hotline (even a hit not just for the kids), the free snacks, icecream and soft drinks, also breakfast was a nice bonus, as well as free laundry. Couldn't fault it, cant wait to recommend to all my clients and will return on my next visit. We had a one bedroom and it was huge, big bed, balcony over looking the pool - not to mention location to Universal Studios and Hollywood!!

We loved this hotel from the get-go. They don't try to mimic the big chain hotels they do it better. Perfect location for getting to events as quickly and easily as anyone can in LA. Rooms were clean and spacious but the pool and lovely folks you meet are the main draws. They have robe sizes for every member of the family. Staff go above and beyond to make your stay extraordinary. They will book your reservation in advance at the beautiful Magic Castle for dinner and show. They also gave us a drive to and from the Castle because I was wearing heels. Make sure to ask for a treat and try out the world-famous popsicle hotline. I mean where else in the world has a popsicle hotline. Going again as soon as possible and give two thumbs wayyyyyyy up!
