Hollywood Downtowner Inn
Ranked #145 of 354 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 25 January 2014

We stayed here for 5 days, with our 5 year old son and friends of ours stayed in another room. Our friends room had been recently renovated and included a kitchenette, which all looked great. Despite our room being unrenovated and needing a bit of a revamp the room was clean and the bed very comfortable.(It looks like they are in the process of renovating rooms as they become available). Not that we heard any noise at all. The only complaint would be the heater was noisy and 1 lamp in the room was a bit dodgy which we informed the front desk so I`m sure they have rectified that by now. This would not stop us staying here again. The price and the position was ideal for us. The pool was clean and looked inviting, but too cold in December for us to use.
The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and joked around with the kids. The breakfast next door was good for a free meal, the hot food selection varied a bit day to day, just one of the kitchen staff was very grumpy. Is a great place to bring kids and not worry about them being a bit noisy. They had seating for big groups, (our group being 8 people).
There are restaurants, bottle shop within walking distance from the hotel. The hollywood walk of fame is a short drive away (we drove as we have little kids and they can`t walk that far without whingeing). Apparently a subway is nearby.
This is a great hotel, value for money and we loved the retro, funky look. If you want to just sit in your room and not see the sights, you will need to spend more and go elsewhere.

My daughter and I luckily found this GREAT little place when searching for a different, more affordable hotel in the area of the Hollywood Strip. The owners are GREAT people and welcomed us to their property. I have traveled to many places and stayed in a variety of hotels/motels and I would rank my experience here at the top of the list. I am NOT into all the fancy dancy OVER PRICES rooms that attract most tourists. This will be the ONLY place I stay when visiting Hollywood again. IT is a simple place with good people and a great way to help stretch your vacation dollars. I always felt very comfortable and safe while staying here...

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room that looked out over the pool.

I booked thru Expedia since they offered $25 discount for first time booking with their App, the out the door price for 2 nites was $115. This motel seems to be badly maintained and need a lot of TLC in everything that you can imagine. The Indian lady was OK and not mean to me. The breakfast was served in a restaurant nearby with all the basic stuff, I guess they are clean since LA Health Dept issued them an "A", the coffee was awful, the juice wasn't good. To be fair, I'd recommend this place to the visitors with tight budget, but I wont go back. For this price, they may deserve an "Average" rating.

Room Tip: Expedia offers $25 discount for $100 purchase with their App.

The Downtowner Inn is not a luxurious hotel; but it is a quite ok place to stay and sleep while enjoying everything else the Los Angeles area has to offer. Clean and reasonably comfortable. A good location for easily driving to Hollywood, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Silver Lake (the new in spot), Malibu, Pasadena. The Inn also has sufficient free private parking. Also only a five minutes walk to the Metro, which is an easy way to reach many areas in Los Angeles, if your destination is near one of the Metro Stations and you travel in daytime; otherwise not. Infrequent trains in the evenings, and don't count on finding a taxi near the Metro stations. Breakfast in a taco restaurant next door included in room price.

Stayed for 1 night and it was really nice. The hotel is in a nice location, not far from Walk of Fame and many great restaurants. The room was large, clean,and had a small,separate "kitchen" room with a table, 2 chairs, sink, microwave and small fridge! The bathroom was clean but could use a little paint on the back of the door. The Wi-Fi worked fine, parking was good and the breakfast buffet at House of Tacos was nice - eggs, bacon, potato's, make your own waffles, fresh fruit, toast - basic but nice. The owners are really, really nice. I was told that if I had any trouble parking to come and get them, they will make sure we have off street parking (I was able to park just fine - plenty of space). The hotel is in "Thai Town" so they recommended some good places to eat - we went to one of them and it was delicious! I was very happy with my stay here and will be definitely go back!

Room Tip: Our room was #24, it's upstairs and on the backside of the hotel. It's big and there is a la...

Although I found the owners/staff to be very accommodating & friendly, I was disappointed because the TV didn't work properly, the internet was very difficult to get on even though it was FREE, it was pretty noisy almost all day & night, the place is run down, but clean & honestly I've stayed in much nicer places for half the price!
Having said that it is close to shops & restaurants as well as only 15 minutes walking distance to main Blvd. Parking was also FREE but very tight at times!
