This hotel was a great find, Great location (right in the heart of hollywood/hollywood and highland) and staff very friendly. All points of interest very accessible from the info given at front desk, and transporatation only steps away. The room was a generous size, with plenty of room to move. Room included a king bed, fridge and a sofa bed...free internet access...a little slow, but free....breakfast was simple,...overall a great stay and i would consider choosing this hotel again.

We checked the reviews before staying here and the common message was that the staff were amazing - and they were!

Really friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the local area. The guys helped us plan the next legs of our journey, giving us loads of their own ideas.

The location is great and the hotel has a cozy, safe feel about it.

Yea, rooms are a bit basic and have maybe seen their best, but in terms of value for money - out of this world.

The included breakfast is also a nice personal touch.

We loved it and would defo stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and would definitely recommend it. We looked at a number of 4/5 star hotels but they were at least double the price of this one.

I would rate it as a decent 3 three star hotel.

Reception: Friendly and very informative
Room: Spotless but a little dated. There was a kitchette in the room if you require one.
Location: Perfect to see hollywood and surrounding sites. We took one of the bus tours which departed 5 minutes walk away from the hotel.

Secure Parking was free which was a plus as parking in other hotels that we looked at was approx 30 dollars per day.

Breakfast was a bonus also and there was always a good selection of bread/coffee/cereals.

There was free internet access in the room and there is also an internet PC beside the reception desk.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel. From a value for money perspective it was excellent.

We viewed all of the sights around Hollywood and LA and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. There is a back entrance from the end of Orchid Ave that leads to the mall area, so it is a quick walk to Hollywood Blvd. Yes, the hotel is a little outdated and doesn't have an elevator, but the rooms are very clean and the staff is always there to help. We had a little street noise from Franklin Dr, but we slept through it easily. The free wifi only reaches to the lobby and patio area, so don't expect it in your room. The staff knows the area, metro routes, and anything else you need really well and are always willing to please. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay there again if I were to ever again.

Can't complain at all about this hotel. Large room, cheap price, friendly service, free internet in room and lobby, free (but basic) breakfast, free parking, and close to a lot of sights and the Metro. Has a small fridge in the room as well which we always find handy.

Seems to be an American thing, but it would be great to have some basic cereals for the breakfast rather than bagels & sweet things.

Would stay there again and recommend it to family and friends.

We stay here off and on when coming up from Orange County to see a play at the Pantages or several other smaller theaters close by. Often we will come up by train and then Metro it to this hotel, a very easy trip. We do not get the suites with kitchens but even the "smaller" rooms have eating areas with a small refrigerator.

This hotel is clean, cute and cheap. It is also friendly. Free continental breakfast, free internet, free parking. free exercise/steam room on top of a great room at a great price- what's not to love ?

It is very close to the Hollywood/Highland Metro station where you can easil;y get to: downtown, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Pasadena, Universal Studios, Union Station, The Music Center, as well as many other places of interest. We always make sure we have dinner at Musso and Franks when staying here.

This hotel is easily accessible from the airport metro if you don't have a car. Close to Hollywood Highland shopping centre, the walk of fame, Kodak Theatre, El Capitan theatre. Universal Studios is only one metro stop away.
The reception staff are so helpful. When you stay at this hotel you are able to book a dinner at the Magic Castle which is about a 5 min walk away. Request a ground floor room (I don't think there are lifts?). The vending machine has water at such a cheap price - 75c!!
There is complimentary breakfast in the lobby (7 or 8am til 10am)- we took it back to our room to eat (there is no seating area). There were bagels, cream cheese, chocolate and blueberry muffins, croissants, oj, other juices and tea and coffee. Tea and coffee was also available all day. The room itself was nice, with a little sitting area (table and chairs, fridge).
