“Excellent choice!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 via mobile

We loved this motel and it could not have been better located! We didn't have a car and so used the underground quite a lot. The Hollywood and Western station was only a 2 minute walk away so we could access lots of areas very quickly.  Only 2 stops way from the walk of fame and all the touristy stuff that goes with it. About 3 stops to Universal Studios. 

There is also a supermarket right next door so you can fill your room fridge up with water / milk / fruit. You can also borrow plates / bowls and cutlery from the hotel so you could easily eat breakfast in your room every morning. We usually just went to Starbucks which was next door to pick up a coffee / fruit cup etc to start the day.

The room itself was spotless as was the bathroom - top marks for cleanliness!  Free wireless internet was fast and always online.  The bed was really comfortable and the pool / spa area was clean and quiet.   The laundry room was excellent and only $2 to wash and $2 to dry, you could also use the computer and a microwave in that room.

There are a couple if really good places to eat nearby! The Dixie Hollywood which was just round the corner on Hollywood Blvd do a great brunch and on our last night we found a great Thai place just across the road from the Dixie which was super cheap (around $7 a meal) and very tasty!

This is an excellent choice for those who don't want to break the bank, have comfort and cleanliness high on their agenda and want to be in a great location.  I certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Fantastic location very close to the metro station, starbucks, grocery store etc. The hotel itself is lovely and secure, beautiful pool, jacuzzi and garden. The room was great- clean & cool with a large fridge.

Just to echo what others have said, don't be put off by the kerb appeal. Once inside it's great. It's got everything you need for a stay in LA. It could do with a bit of TLC here and there but look past that and for the price it's a bargain!

Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and close to all of the attractions in central LA. We had a room right at the back of the hotel which was very quiet.

I stayed at the Coral Sands Motel between 31 May 2013 - 5 June 2013. The motel was great value for money as it was clean, comfortable, in a central location and had all the necessary amenities we needed. The room was quite large and the bathroom was a good size as well. The motel is across from a train station which was really good as it meant we were easily able to go visit a few places in Hollywood by train as well as being able to rent a car. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

I would definitely consider staying here again although I probably would not recommend this place to older family or friends as they would probably prefer a proper hotel. However, if you are looking for a clean place to stay on a budget this would definitely be a good choice.

We were a family of 3 adults and 3 year old child. On arrival a bit scary, but that's because it's safe & secure. The inner courtyard is a delightful oasis, with heated jacuzzi & pool, lots of flowers and vines, and lovely sitting areas. Tea lights for evening sitting. Very peaceful and quiet. Small rooms and bathrooms, but good beds, pillows, fridge, coffee machine etc. bathroom spotless and lots of hot water. Stayed 3 nights and slept very well every night. Has separate room with washer & dryer, free computer/ wifi, and microwave so we made our own breakfast every morning. On arrival we found our TV wouldn't change channels and it was replaced within 5 minutes. I accidently left my iPad in the garden in the morning and was returned to me in the afternoon when I returned. I hadn't even missed it. So, I only have good things to say about this motel, with very nice hosts who are aware that little extras and a nice ambience make a big difference in the noisy bustle that is Hollywood.

The Motel is definitely old and is a little scary looking upon first sight, and if you're bothered by small things such as screens on the windows not fitting properly, smallish rooms and baths, then this is not the place for you. However everything was clean, the pool, the rooms were made up properly etc. The staff was polite and friendly. It doesn't have breakfast but there is a large grocery chain around the corner and numerous lunch and dinner places within a block or two. The room has a mini-fridge, hair dryer, and wi-fi and there is a common room with a computer, microwave, ice machine, and laundry facilities. We stayed there 6 nights and would stay again.
