El Patio Inn
Ranked #259 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed October 3, 2007

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to sleep a few minutes away from Universal Studios and the Hollywood walk of fame - then this is the place for you. Though be warned, it is nothing more than what I described. The management speaks little to no english. The decor is rather tacky, and their idea of, "premium cable" is the local abc, nbc, and cbs affiliates. Oh and forget about the internet -- they wanted to charge me $10 for a single use of their WiFi !!! Needless to say, I told them where they could stick their ten bucks! I hate ending a review on a negative note. To their credit, the restrooms are a good size, VERY clean, and you cannot beat the location. Like I said, if your looking for an inexpensive place to sleep, shower, and shave, the El Patio Inn is the place for you.

in response to the customer's review, this is a 16 unit motel that that has a certain ambience of the past as it was built in the early 1950's and owners have remodeled it to it's best condition possible and added various amenities for todays needs and it is economical on the scale and that it is in an expensive area of LA. jeverything is in good condition and functional and it certainly is not a five star hotel!
