“Great location!”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

Me and my roommate stayed it this hotel from March 14-16th, 2011 and I was pleasantly surprised by it. I read up on all the hotels in Hollywood to find a cheap place to stay at and found this one. After reading the reviews I was kind of wary about but we went with it anyways and I'm glad we did. We had purchased the Hollywood City Pass and all the locations are less than 10 minute walking distance away which really helped on gas and parking. It was quiet at night but that could depend on the floor you stay on. (We were on the third floor) They offer free Wi-Fi and they have room service that is expensive since you have to order $15 or more and there is a $3 fee but the food was good. The only thing I would say that I didn't like is that you have to pay $10 for parking and there is not a lot of space so once it is full you are out of luck. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others that are going to stay in Hollywood..

the location is the plus, as it is very close on Hollywood Blvd. The rooms are large for an hostel and clean. also internet is free in the lobby (if you can get a seat). It was anyway far the most expensive place we stayed in. The guys at the desk could not care less. Can't fault it really, but I had the same stuff for less. Also, the neighbourhood does not look the best (homeless and weirdos, but that's hollywood for you, I guess), even though we never felt unsafe.

You get what you pay for - this place is one of the cheaper ones down Hollywood Boulevard, so if you're on a budget ok. If you can afford anything better, do so.

The bed is nice and big, but the blankets are thin and I was cold every night. The pillows are too hard. There is no cupboard for clothes, nor anyway to lock valuables away. (Not that I had anything go missing though).

The paint is badly chipped on the main table in the room and much too close to the bed, so you can't get in and out of the chair if you need to use a laptop there for example. I just took the chair away and sat on the bed eventually.

The front desk staff are not that efficient at all, and certainly don't go out of the way to help with anything. It feels like they are doing you a favour more than anything.

Whatever you do, don't book any tours with the front desk! They are clearly getting commission from Starline tours so push their services hard, but Starline leave a lot to be desired! Look on the internet for tours, or get a pamphlet from the reception area and call yourself. The motel will make you pay a deposit too - it takes away your options to change your mind about something.

They don't change currency, so make sure you have enough.

The motel tends to be noisy so ask for a room at the end of the passage where there's less traffic. There is some kind of casual bar type thing at the back of the motel, which gets very noisy to very late at night. You'll need a sleeping pill to sleep through it.

The location is kind of in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard, around 4 long blocks in either direction to any of the action. While I walked back alone around midnight with no issue, some of the places you pass are really seedy and I did feel a little uncomfortable. A cab ride is just over $5 to the Hard Rock Cafe.

There is a small market shop on the corner for water and snacks, but it's really grungy and dodgy.

Would I stay here again? No, but then again, I have no plans to return to Los Angeles thankfully.

This Motel 6 is more hotel style, it was the priciest Motel 6 we have stayed in, but its location just behind the Hollywood Boulevard is brilliant (always ask for a discount, especially if you're staying for a few nights). You have to pay for the parking but it has 24 hour security. The rooms were huge and clean with a fridge and large bathroom. The staff were helpful.

The only negatives about this motel were noisy neighbours being unable to park in the car park two nights in a row as it was full.

Was very disappointed in our stay at motel 6 Hollywood. Staff were not friendly or helpful. While the location was good - only a short walk to Hollywood Blvd, there were alot of homeless people and shady looking people around the front which did not make us feel safe to walk around at night.

This hotel is best suited for younger people and backpackers as the whole feel of the hotel was Glorified Backpackers.

Motel 6 its pricey but you are in the centre of Hollywood. Good things :

Spacious room
good cleaning- friendly Mexican cleaners always smiling despite little English language
elevator was fast/clean don’t have to wait around much
location good, although it is nearer the rougher side of Hollywood boulevard.
newspapers in the lobby daily
TV in the lobby
24 hours security and cameras
Fransisco and the weekday night shift gentleman was friendly and very helpful, he promptly replaced our fridge when it was not working.
Clean towels/linen

Bad things:
rooms need refurbishment. Broken sink/tiles despite high price $80/night
TV old
Windows don’t open much (only 3cm)
rooms get stuffy
bathroom extractor fan not very strong either
room keys don’t always work, trial and error
Very noisy on weekends - dunk students running up and down corridors at 3am
Tea/coffee is disgusting. no fresh milk
there is no ramp outside the motel so its hard to carry up luggage.
pets are allowed, slightly unsure if thy have access to all rooms or just a specific level. would not be nice to know there was a dog sleeping previously in our bed.

I would recommend it for a short stay just to see the attractions if you can tolerate its bad points. For the cost I'm not sure you're exactly getting what you paid for but at least it was very clean.

If you're lloking for fun in Hollywood, this hotel rocks! Short walk distance from all the coolest clubs in Holllywood as well as all major attractions in the area. Great value for your money, some hostels in the area cost just a little less! The building is very old and the refurbishment is a cheap one, but looks clean and functional, and that's all that matters!
Be aware that the block is noisy especially in the weekend ( no longer than 2:00AM when the clubs turn the music off). Be also aware that after the crazy nights, the whole block sleeps deeply till noon, so enjoy the unreal silence and desert Hollywood Bouleverd in the morning.
Hotel has a 10$/day garage for your car but don't drive in late at your arrival in the weekend because it gets full. Anyway, there are a couple of parking lots very close at the same price.
Definitely the easiest/coolest place at a bargain for people looking for fun!
