The room was ok, it was clean for us despite the nasty reviews. We arrived very early at 8am and asked if we could shower before checking in (cause we took a night coach from San Francisco). The friendly staff allowed us to use one of the rooms that the guest had left but not yet tidied up (if we don't mind), so they are easy people. Location is great, just right behind Walk of Fame and there is wifi available even though it is not fantastic. Breakfast is average and more than what I expected since we are not paying a high fee for the stay.

Room Tip: There's no elevator if I am not wrong, so request for a room on ground level if you have a heavy luggage.

I had read some bad reviews about this hotel, but decided to stay anyway. The staff was super friendly. The price amazing as it includes parking - that's worth $25 a nite alone. The room was pleasant, everything worked well and was clean. Not like a new Best Western or Holiday Inn - but totally acceptable - especially given the price and location. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: I had room 201 - two full size beds in there... up off the street... was great.

Do NOT waste your money! This hotel is disgusting. The location is great right behind the Loews Hotel but you might as well spend the money and stay there because that is where we ended up. Dirty bed sheets with hair and snot on them (refer to pictures), a melted heater still on the wall, bars pried off the windows, half textured walls, the shower curtain falling off the wall, and one working lock on the door with the chain and the deadbolt look broken. Not to mention the terrible smell of the room.

Thank you for your feedback on our property. We regret to hear that you were disappointed during your recent stay with us. We always try to go above and beyond for our guest and it seems we feel short of this goal. We value you as a guest and hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future as we are under new ownership and will be doing major renovations on all of our rooms.

Great location, very close to all the action in Hollywood. Right around the corner from the Chinese Theater as well as plenty of Hollywood nightlife along Hollywood Ave. Easy access via the Metro and buses. Can also easily get to Universal Studios via the Metro and walk down to Sunset Ave to take the bus to Santa Monica. The hotel is a little old and not too fancy, but it's a perfect location if you're just looking to have a place to stay in the middle of Hollywood . Staff was friendly and came around each day for housekeeping. A small breakfast was served in the morning as well. The price beats much of the other hotels in the area. All in all, good value in terms of price and location.

Great value for having a free parking lot half a block away from the heart of Hollywood! I suppose the pickiest of travelers might complain about it being a bit dated, but for them there are much fancier hotels (with matching pricetags) around the corner. The staff were incredily welcoming, free breakfast, hot showers, did I mention the large room, great wi-fi, convenient location, and AMAZING price! Thanks for a great stay!
