We stopped in here while trying to find a reasonably priced hotel/motel in the Hollywood area without going into a dive and so when I walked into the lobby to ask about room price/availability, it seemed ideal as the lobby and front area are very swish and modern. You can see it’s been a 60’s hotel but looked like it had been revamped from the outside with sleek smoked glass balconies added to the frontage. The room was $149 with taxes for a twin queen, so price wise pretty good for Hollywood, but the outside and lobby are a bit misleading as the actual hotel rooms are older and a bit of a let down. Our room was very bare and had a battered old fridge in the corner with a microwave balanced atop it. The beds were clean and comfy but the shower very small and old school (I never bothered trying to get a shower as it was pretty off putting). There was a wall socket hanging off (which I avoided using and did notify the desk about when I checked out) and some peeling/rotting woodwork right outside the window. On the upside, the place is in a good location and you can just walk down a side street to Hollywood Blvd and the staff were nice enough. There is a limited complimentary continental breakfast included (bread, cream cheese, toaster, muffins, juice boxes, tea/coffee) so it’s enough to start you off until you get something real to eat somewhere else. One major downside was that the WiFi in the rooms was an extra and chargeable at $10 for 24 hours (but they do have a couple of PCs in the lobby which they said were free to use, but when I tried it was asking for payment to log onto the connection). I got the feeling that this place has been taken over and they are part way through re-doing the place (but just not reached the rooms yet)! I wouldn’t stay again until the rest of the hotel has been upgraded to match the lobby but then it will probably justify an increase in price, so really not too bad if you need somewhere to crash for a night.
