“great position, very dirty”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We spent only two nights here but we found this hotel very old and above all very dirty but on the other side we have to admit that it's very central, right on Sunset Boulevard. so, to sum up: if u search a cheap place in the center this motel is ok otherwise move a bit far from the city center.

The location is excellent, however I can't say anything else positive about this hotel. We stayed for two nights, just because of the price (but if it was up to me, we would have paid more and stayed somewhere else). There were blood stains on the sheets, the place was generally really dirty and in the morning we were freezing because there was no insulation around the air conditioning unit! When we finally checked out, we left our luggage behind the check in desk for an hour. When we got back, my friend asked if she could use the bathroom, the man behind the desk said no! Very hospitable indeed.

Thinking of saving some money for our last 2 nights, i booked this place, without checking the reviews. More fool me! We arrived and our hearts sank, when we checked into the room, we were depressed. Truly awful. I don't need to re-iterate the other comments. Everything about it is dirt-cheap. It could have ruined the end of our holiday, but we decied to do the one night, sod the expense and go to Santa Monica(Days Inn) which, comparatively speaking, was luxury. The only plus, was the location to Grauman's etc.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

The location of this motel is awesome, it's a few steps from the Hollywood Blvd. Yet the area is pretty shady and in the evening and at night you can mostly hear police car sirens. I wouldn't go for a stroll after 9 pm. It also felt kinda unsafe that the whole place was open and you could just walk into the corridor straight from the street. I wasn't expecting anything more than a very basic room, so I was ok. No bedbugs for me, luckily. The bed was alright, the shower was alright. When you need to crash for a night in a centrally located place in Hollywood, it's fine. Otherwise you'd need to pay a lot more in this place. Don't expect too much and you'll be fine.

The beds are uncomfortable, the tv struggle consists in inserting a pencil in a hole to switch chanels or volume, the furnitures are broken, small rooms, the a/c blows hot air and is very noisy, waaay overpriced for what it is!!!

We had gone to Universal Studios for the day and were looking for a cheap place to stay afterwards...wrong place!! The room smelled like a cigar lounge, the sheets had stains which looked like a combination of mold and blood, and the we had to share the room with a few creepy crawler friends. We ended up leaving after an hour of itchiness and being afraid for our lives! This is a motel I would expect to encounter Norman Bates in (knife and all!). If you are looking to experience Hollywood I would suggest bringing a cardboard box and camping out on the street, you will definitely be better off - not to mention safer!!!

We stayed this hotel because it was all the sightseeing in Hollywood within a walking distance, traffic is horrible.
It was one of the worst hotel I have ever been and it was also quite expensive (70USD/room/night). The amenities were in very bad condition, very dirty room, small room and bathroom. We were in room no. 101, which was looking on the Sunset Blvd, it was very noisy whole night.
