I would definitely agree with other reviews that this is a no-frills hotel, but very good value for money and if you want to stay close to Hollywood Boulevard is in an ideal location. The rooms are very spacious and clean and for those who have booked a longer stay than us (only two nights), then the provision of a fridge in the room would be very welcome. A free breakfast is provided in the lobby, which you help yourself to, and although basic, for the price you pay it is absolutely fine and it was very pleasant sitting outside the hotel in the morning. Additional perks of this hotel is the free parking and free wifi - other reviews have said that parking was slightly overcrowded but this certainly posed no problems for us, and the staff were very obliging about moving cars around at a moments notice. One slight downside was that the hotel takes $200 from your credit card straight away, and although it is credited on departure I had to request a receipt and the exchange rate meant that I lost money on the transaction. I fully understand the need to take credit card details in case of unpaid services, breakages, incidental costs but crediting this amount straight away seemed unreasonable, and this was the only hotel out of six during our stay in California to do this. Would we stay again, probably not, but this has nothing to do with the hotel itself, rather that Hollywood Boulevard is in need of a face lift .. too many souvenir shops for our liking!

This is a no-frills, friendly, well-located, family oriented hotel. It is located in Hollywod and is literally a hop, skip and jump from the Chinese Theatre. I have stayed there twice now and apart from it being clean and comfortable the two things that impressed me this time round were: 1) we arrived very early (ie 10am) and it was no problem (nor no fee) for them to give us our room early and 2) they have the same staff/management as they had last time and I recall from last time how truly nice and friendly they were - they didn't disappoint this time either.

Breakfast is included, tea and coffee are free all day and the rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave which gives patrons options for cheap/in-room meals.

Love it and will be back again!

This hotel is great, being just a minutes walk to the heart of Hollywood yet still being in a quiet street, staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean and breakfast was provided each morning. A bonus was free WiFi and a public computer in the lobby for those that didn't have a laptop which I noticed the larger hotel's charge for. All in all this is great value and a good place to stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights while in the Hollywood Area. Great Location. Very spacious. We had 2 bedrooms, kitchen area, 2 closet spaces, makup / desk area .. I was surprised how big it was. Everything was clean. Lobby was sparkling clean. Free Coffee, Water w/ Lemon & in the morning there is a variety of breakfast foods to choose from (all free). Ok .. so no bacon & eggs ... but the muffin & danish were very yummy. Toast & Juice. Plenty to choose from & more than enough to get you started. We didn't eat again till dinner. Our room was quiet. No pool, but we were too busy anyway. The Con this motel has is the parking .... crazy scary / tight ... but ... if you are not comfortable, they will park your car and pull it our for you if you ask. Hollywood & Highland is crazy fun at night. During the day don't miss Beverly Hills & Rodeo Drive - Beautiful. Santa Monica Pier & Venice Beach (not at night). I would definately stay here again. From here we moved on to Aneheim and I missed the size of the room, makup area and free breakfast.

This hotel was amazing! In short; if you are looking for a great budget hotel in the heart of hollywood, go no further than this!

Please read on for a more detailed review :-)

I found it after looking at numerous reviews. Most of them were good so we took a gamble. It paid off!

As a budget hotel, this is amazing. It is really nicely decorated on the inside and our room was tastfully decked out in an old school hollywood theme. So much room!
Bed- so comfy!
It had a fridge, table, chairs in a wee kitchenette corner, a dressing room with one of those mirrors with lights round it (loved it!), a big wardrobe, iron, bath and shower. Cold and warm water were in plenty a supply (trust me, LA in August- you'll need cold showers!!!)

The breakfast was very good, especially as a traveler as we were not used to the American breakfast of Muffins or Croissants. The cereal, milk, toast and spreads were much appreciated! You collect your food then take it back up to your room.

The air con was great- better to keep the windows shut as the rooms facing the road can be a wee bit noisy.

The location? If you want to stay in hollywood you can't get better! It's right there in the middle of things, yet because it's situated one block behind the main drag, you don't get the noise, bustle, or homeless people like you do on the Boulevard.

It has free parking. The lot is small and often full, but the staff are very accommodating and will shift cars around to make yours fit (and even park it for you if your husband is too scared to attempt parking the expensive rental car in a tiny spot...)

Speaking of the staff, we found them all great. Well presented, helpful and friendly. Cleaning service was great too.

The ONLY downside of this hotel is the location. Like I said, if you WANT to be in Hollywood, this is definitely the place to be. However I found Hollywood quite different than I imagined and would not want to go see it again.

However would still stay here again using it as a base to see other parts of the city.

Thankyou so much HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY HOTEL for a great stay- you'd get 6 stars if I could give them!

My friends and I just returned home a 2-week trip through California, with the majority of our time spent at the Hollywood Celebrity Hotel. As students in our early 20s we were not looking for the best looking hotel but for a hotel that was close to most of the attractions we had in mind with a price that was not expensive. The Hollywood Celebrity was all that plus more. It was extremely cheap for the area, It is located right behind the Hollywood and Highland and just steps away from the walk of fame, many theaters, museums, and night life. But most importantly the Hollywood Celebrity had the best staff and service I have had at any hotel I have been to. We were usually up pretty early in the mornings and out the door to go sight seeing pretty fast. So the continental breakfast provided was all we needed. Because we left pretty early in the mornings we did not really get to know the daytime staff although they were always happy to answer our questions and greet with the biggest smiles on their faces. The best service came from Syed at the front desk. The night before we arrived at the hotel we called letting him know that we would be checking in late. When we arrived the next day he knew exactly who we were and had everything ready for us. We quickly came to realize that we needed a car to get around LA and with out any hesitation Syed had called a company for us and in 25 minutes we had a car. Every time we had a question about where something was or how to get somewhere, Syed would always let us know. He was always sure to ask when he saw us come walking through the doors at the end of the day about how our day went, and to suggest new things to do. The Hollywood Celebrity Hotel was a great hotel for us, the price, location, and most importantly the staff were amazing. I would defiantly stay here again.
