“Cheap motel in an excellent location”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

not been to LA before and as we were doing a road trip we was scrimping slightly when booking accommodation. have to say we found the location to be excellent. we hired a car and the car park is available and free which is a bonus. we were close to the Hollywood sign and Griffith park which we didn't go to. left the car parked up and walked to Hollywood boulevard. you can catch the metro or the bus aswell. hotel is a bit dated needs a lick of paint and tlc but seemed to be clean and definatley comfortable. we stayed 2 nights but would stay again. starbucks is on the next block and a cvs.

If you are looking for a fairly cheap place to stay in LA that is a good location in relation to Hollywood then I would recommend Coral Sands. The beds were huge and the subway is only a minute walk away.

Stayed at the Coral Sands for 2 nights 27-29 May 2013. Check in was quick and convenient. I must say the place does not look amazing or fancy, but the value isn't bad at all. Checked me in a little early which was good. This was my first time in LA and the staff were very helpful giving me tips of where to go and what to do .. they even printed out a map for surrounding area. Free parking is always a plus!

now the Cons:
1 Not so clean at the entrance .. a lot of flys and smelt a bit weird
2 room was a bit outdated .. but for $90 a night I can't complain
3 If it's your first time in LA .. try to stay as close as you can to Hollywood blvrd .. the further u go .. the more ghetto it could get - The hotel was a little far from the vibrant areas in hollywood

Other than that it was a very pleasant experience .. There is a convenience store right next door which was excellent and a starbucks.

I would stay here again if im traveling on my own.

Very good experience with this hotel. Just next to a Ralphs supermarket, a Starbucks and a Jamba Juice. No breakfast is included but having these places to stop by, it is not a problem. The room is spacious. I really liked what the motel looked like, it reminded me of Melrose Place. I didnt have the chance to try out the pool or the jacuzzi as we only stayed 2 nights and always came late from sightseeing. Apparently everything was clean and the staff were pleasent and helpful. Complimentary coffee as usual in the room.

The location is good too, just next to the Thai Town if you want to have some nice Thai food and a short drive up to Warner and Universal studios. Walk of fame is also near by car.

On first arriving at this motel . I thought what a dump.Once past the very grim reception I found the rooms to be very clean and serviceable. The staff couldn't do enough. Lets face it Hollywood isn't great however I felt very secure in this little motel

I was not very impressed when I first arrived. However the man behind the front desk was very friendly and let us check-in at 11am, my jet-lagged boyfriend and I were extremely grateful! When we got to the room I was pleasantly surprised with just how clean and comfortable it was. Amenities include, free wifi, a pool, laundry and guest computer with free internet. The hotel is close to a Starbucks and the subway which was exactly what we needed. Would stay again!

Stay at Coral Sands Motel for 5 nights at the end of August of this year. The staff are very friendly. The rooms were clean. The courtyard is very quaint. Nice place to sit in the afternoon for a drink.This motel is very close to metro which is a great way to get around the LA. I would recommend this motel to anyone who does want to spent a lot on accommodation but want to be a great location.
