I really wanted to make the best out of this hotel and like it, but all in all it wasn't that great.

It is very old and outdated. The improvements that were made was done as cheaply as possible. The mattress was cheap and flimsy. Very similar to what you would find at one of those furniture rental places. The room anemities were near zero. No extra pillows, no inroom telephone, and no central air unit. There is a window unit ac and in room dorm style fridge. Cable TV is ok.
Carpet is dated outdoor turf style. Walls were painted over sheet rock where you could see the tape showing through. I have numerous bites from insects. I suspect bed bugs.

There is no elevator, and you have to nego 4 sets of stairs to get to the 2nd floor. Front staff were nice and do the best with what they have. Parking was good. The hotel location is at the edge of Thai town. It is kinda poor and run down. Attractions are roughly 5 miles away so you will need a car or taxi. The cafe downstairs and next door is good.

I would stick with a chain hotel next time. Santa Monica is clean and beautiful. Will probably stay there.

Room Tip: Do not get a hollywood sign view! Room are too loud!

I saw this hotel in a forum and decided to stay here. Good free parking out the back and the location was great, so close to everything. The price was fantastic, about $112AU at the time. The room and bathroom was clean, I would definately recommend this place for a budget traveller

It is true there are bed bugs at this hotel! My boyfriend and i were woken up by bed bugs at 4 in the morning!! We checked everywhere and squished 7 bed bugs! They moved us to a better room but when we came home my boyfriend discovered a bed bug hiding on our lugguge. If your going to stay at this hotel be warned that you might bring these bugs h and be bitten throughout the night. Request NOT to stay in room 318 there are lots of bed bugs harboring there :(

The hotel is old, regular and cheap. The location is good, and have a parking lot.
Negative points: to much noise from the street and the air conditioner is not so good.

I recommend if you want to save money, and don't care for a simple room.

this hotel is awsome. not only is this hotel an affordable price, but the staff here is incredible. yes we did have to walk up and down the stairs but the guy at the front desk was more than happy to help with our luggage and with extra towels, etc. the fridge in the room, ceiling fan and a/c, free wifi, and free parking was also very convenient. you really cant beat the location of this hotel. right down the street from almost everywhere you need to go. it also has a great view of the hollywood sign. also right next to the hotel is a wonderful little cafe, also very friendly employees. all in all this hotel is great. and i will most definetly stay here everytime i come back to hollywood.
