“Nice motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I stayed 4 nights at coral sands. It might not look very nice from the street, but it's more than ok on the inside. The guys at the reception were very nice and helpful, they even showed us to our room. They also have a room with a pc, microwave, washer/dryer and detergent is for free! The room itself is a bit outdated, but there was a fridge, flat screen tv and, what was even more important, a safe. The location is completely ok as well, there is subway station just on the corner, grocery store next door as well as starbuck's. It took us 25 min to walk to chinese theatre, which is fine with me. The only thing they could have improved is the amount of tv channels. They didn't have a lot of them. Other than that i would stay here again and i find it perfect for budget travelers. Don't really understand bad reviews here, cause on my way through CA i have seen worse motels which cost much more!!! If you expect it to be Beverly Willshire, then you are definitely wrong, but you are not paying 400 $ a night as well!!! I also felt myself safe at the motel, since everyone has to go through the reception. If you book in advance, ask for the room on the 1st floor, then you won't hear your upstairs neighbours :-)

From the lobby to our room dirty and disgusting appearance. The bed had very very outdated and worn linens that did not look clean. When I pulled back the sheets I found a heavily stained mattress. The stained looked like old blood or human excrement. The room furniture was very old worn scratched and dusty. I posted pictures on Yelp so you can see for yourself! Never stay here unless you want to feel like your in a nightmare from hell.

I was pleasantly surprised! For the price, this is a great motel just a couple of miles from the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as really close to the 101. We used this as a base to visit Universal Studios and other Hollywood attractions and it worked out just perfect. There is a Starbucks just next doors and a CVS a couple of blocks away. The front desk was very helpful and walked us to our room. While the motel doesn’t look so appealing from outside, the room itself was very clean and comfortable. Room service obviously did a good job each day. For the price, this is a great deal.

Located next to a Ralphs and very good Thai restaurants. The staff, Pablo and Brian, were very helpfull and had the best attitude, rare in this part of the world. Close to the 101 and 5 mins from Universal Studios.

Really happy with this hotel. Cheap and great location. Stayed there for 4 nights. Only 100m from the train station into downtown or north hollywood. Next door to a massive supermartet, hotel had a decent fridge which was handy. Friendly staff at front. Not far walk from hollywood blvd's bars and clubs.

My only gripe was they would turn on a courtyard sound system at like 8 or 9am with radio, the speakers where close to our room (front)which was annoying. And alot of little contruction jobs going on after 9. Other than that this place is awesome def stay again.

This place has always been clean and cheap and in a great location. It has been reinvented of late and discovered by foreign travelers. It's a basic place to stay in a great location for sightseeing and a very short walk to the Metro stop - so you can go anywhere in the city from here. The pool was clean and there is a laundry room. The staff is polite and helpful.

The hotel is old and doesnt look the best, but inside the room itself is clean, and had all the necessities that we needed. Fridge, tv, heater, air conditioner, etc. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Inside the room had wallpaper tearing away from the walls, minor flaws, but had a pleasant time there. They have a laundry room, laundry soap and dryer sheets were also available at no cost, Laundry was $2.00 a load to wash or dry, and computer usage with free internet, and some printing abilities. Very close to the Metro, (subway) and bus stop also. Star bucks coffee was about 3 buildings away, and a Ross? or Ralphs food store/convenience store similar to wal mart was just next door, across the road was another store similar to a shopper's, it has photo stuff, household stuff, alcohol, snacks etc. There were no restaurants or fitness center, although it did have a pool and hot tub out side. We never took our bathing suits, but the hot tub did look like it was calling our name, ...on the chilly rainy day that we had time.
