Second stay and always amazing experience. I love staying at Sahara Hotel. It's close to all the activities in Hollywood, Free parking & coffee, friendly staff, clean rooms and the price is right. Sahara is always my first choice when staying in Hollywood.

Amazing location to explore Hollywood and the Los Angeles. Free parking, coffee & good services. Room was clean and neat. It had a microwave, fridge and air conditioning. The bed was made and received fresh towels every day. Will stay again if they offer good price again.

The location is fab! Couldn't recommend a better location. Easy taxi ride to downtown or Beverly Hills, 10 minute walk to the walk of fame and the main Hollywood strip! The room was fine, for the price it was good. Clean, comfy, cosy but big enough and had everything we needed! The pool was unfortunately closed when we stayed which...

This was one of the more reasonably priced motels in the area and it is close to lots of attractions and restaurants. The problem was the property itself. The staff was not friendly at all. We had problems with the remote for the tv and it took three tries to fix it. Several things in our room need to be...

Our stay could have been much better. Even though our expectations weren't high, we were overall disappointed because my sister and I were bitten by bed bugs on our last night. Also, the cleaning lady entered the room to change the pillow cases while I was taking a nap in the afternoon and made a lot of noise. We enjoyed...

Room clean, breakfast was help yourself to a muffin or make your own waffle, really basic but central for universal studios and Hollywood walk of Fame, staff really grumpy and not very helpful. I would recommend for easy access to local attractions.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
