Coral Sands Motel
Ranked #58 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Could be I'm just a sucker for the sweet little garden-courtyard, but that was enough to make me feel we'd found a little oasis in the busy city. Definitely an international-traveler vibe, nothing fancy, but relatively quiet and safe and certainly affordable. Pleasant staff. Between Thai Town and Little Armenia, there's plenty of good eats for the adventurous. Not so much if you're looking for American fare beyond Starbucks (which is practically next door). Slightly removed from the hubbub of Hollywood Blvd., but easy to walk to the sights--then escape from the crowd.

Great guy on the reception desk very friendly and helpful. Two minute walk to the metro and 2 stops away from Hollywood/Highlander where the Chinese theatre is and all the Hollywood glitter.
Get on the hop on/off bus and do the tour and see everything. Hotel room clean, bathroom small but ok. Swimming pool clean but a bit cold in March, Jacuzzi brilliant. Ralphs supermarket next door. Could not have picked a better motel for my 3 nights in LA. Motel survived the 4.4 earthquake ok while I was there.

Room Tip: Two levels obviously the ground floor rooms are easier but can get noise from the room above.

we had a great time here. you pay for what you get. it is clean and the location is great.

its right near a train station and only one stop away from the walk of fame etc. we loved staying here.

rihgt next door is a grocery shop so if you need anything you can just grab it. staff were great and helpful.

The Coral Sands Motel was in a great location of west Hollywood, close to shops and Hollywood icons. Would recommend this hotel fir a short stay. Had a great atmosphere and was relatively quite! The staff were very friendly and helpful.

I had the painters at my home in west la and had to stay 2 days out .so i found this for 100 bucks on the web and was more than disappointed.forget about the pics.this place is a complete dump in hollywood's worst neighbourhood. If you like seeing beggars and bums the whole day that yell if you have change and are afraid at night to leave this hotel this is the place for you. The only positive thing about this is i appreciate so much more where i live and that i do not have to come back ever to hobowood,sorry hollywood. Back to the hotel. Completely dated,decrepit place at too much money. Not even cable tv ,a 19 inch or 22 tv set with 8 channels ,blurry as the morning smog. Khaki and mustard wall colors (yukk)' noisy low life tourists ,smoking and yelling at night...noisy rooms,soundproofing unknown.no breakfast.icemaker not working and plastic glasses in a 100 us room. Disgusting rip off.no flair,no neatness just terrible.. Bathroom was clean but amplastic shower head for 100 us is an insult. Sheets were stained....yukk. Housekeeping bothers you at 8 in the morning.what a treat. Feels like a hostel. Disgusting....
In las vegas i have seen 10xx better places for 30 us per night.this place needs a complete renovation,or better make a parking lot out of it.
The only good feature was well working wifi and the metro station western and vine at the corner. All the rest a huge,big mistake...do not take this hotel unless you want to spoil your holidas totally or your standards are zero.....

This was my first ever experience in states. The motel is nice and clean. Very friendly staff and fairly cheap. The room was spacious, non smoking, with AC. no problems at all. Good location. Nothing more to say.

I never would have guessed there could be such a nice motel in LA, especially considering their rates. It was perfect for our 3-night stay. Our room was lovely, clean and quiet with a wonderful shower and good sized refrigerator. The bed was a little hard, but I prefer it that way. Every employee at the front desk was friendly and knowledgeable about the property and neighborhood. If we return to Los Angeles, we will definitely stay at Coral Sands!
