It's basic but cheap and clean. We stayed here for two nights after a long flight from London. The guys at the front desk were friendly and the room had a decent bed, nice bathroom and large TV. It's not going to set the world on fire but for he money I can definitely recommend this place.

I booked this hotel for it's location and PRICE. This hotel is located right off the 101 Fwy and Sunset Blvd. Though it is located East of the 101 fwy is it the perfect location because you get taste of both worlds. If the Hollywood glitz & glam and the whole tourism experience is what you're seeking you will save staying at this location versus paying $160+ than other hotels. You can travel East and head into Silverlake. If visiting the area with no car the subway is 1 block away that can take you to Universal Studios and other locations or you can simply catch the # 2 bus that can take you into Santa Monica Beach.

Plenty of parking where you can see your car from your room. Two story hotel that has a restaurant on site, FREE WI-FI, spacious rooms, and a refrigerator. The rooms I assume were remolded because it has the modern feeling to it. Beds are comfy and so are the pillows. AC & Heater can be loud but it does the job. My room has a desk and chair for any work to be done. I did fear for my safety and can literally walk next door to buy drinks etc.

Overall does the job and would stay at this location again.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the first floor to have easy access to room and car.

If you're looking for a comfortable motel that isn't to expensive but is still close to the hustle and bustle of Hollywood than this is a very good choice.
There is a small reception area with very friendly and helpfull staff.
The rooms are clean, not very big. A decent size bed with a good hard matras, the pillows are on the small size and there are no extra ones in the room available. There is a fridge available but no coffee making facilities. Breakfast is not included in the price, there is a restaurant on the property but it was closed when we stayed here and it didn't look like it would reopen any time soon. A down side is that the lighting in the room is very bright white "hospital like" lights.
Airconditioning is available and you can also open the windows. A parking lot is available on site, and is free.
There is a 7-eleven next door and the motel is in a decent area, only about 5 minutes from Hollywood Boulevard.
A very good choice when looking for a cheaper solution in LA and still close to all the action!

Our room was on the upper level kind of above the reception. The room was clean and well presented. Even though we were close to the entrance and Sunset Blvd there was no problems with noise from the street BUT my only complaint would be that the air conditioner in our room is really loud. Staff seemed friendly enough and I would stay again

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and the cafe was better than it first looked. Beds were cmfortable and shower great. However, a woman knocked on a door telling us to be quite at 7am, so it would appear the walls are thin as we were not talking loudly! But we never woke up and considering we had jet lag had a good nights sleep here!
