The lady at the front desk was very rude. She did not find my reservation and kept us waiting for one hour!. When she finally found it she did not apologize. She gave us a room that was in the worst condition. Beds without covers and garbage all over the place. Then she gave us another room and again didnt... More

You get what you pay for, and we sure did. Honestly, pay an extra $50 and stay at a real hotel, not this motel. Pictures speak for themselves. Also - breakfast includes a waffle maker, two kinds of cereal, toast, tea, and four juices to choose from.

Conveniently located with easy access to bus and train services. Friendly staff is always ready to assist. Small breakfast area with good food and fresh waffles. Room was neat and clean with sufficient supply of toiletries, microwave, coffee making and ironing facility. Overall a good place to stay to explore LA. WiFi was not stable.

We were here for one night due to Lakers match. It's very comfy if you search for something next to downtown and not expensive! Poor breakfast and small dining room but nice waffles machine! Bus stop just right out of the hotel bringing to downtown each 5 minutes!

The hotel has a new name. It is not a Comfort Suites. Very Basic, furniture is been painted to look like an update has been done. Rooms are small. Beds not very comfortable. Staff was friendly, the room was just not what I expected.

Seriously.. the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. Booked this hotel through a 3rd party website for an extended weekend. After arriving to LA and finally finding the hotel, the first thing we noticed was that this was NOT a Comfort Inn. Website, pictures on the internet.. everything says Comfort Inn.. but CURRENTLY (October 17th,2015) it is... More

My husband and I decided to stay here after we arrived a day earlier than expected. The hotel we had booked the next night was full, so we picked this hotel because it was reasonably priced. Big mistake. The service wasn't terrible or anything; the hotel is rundown and dingy. The hallway to our room was dark and scary, like... 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.
