“Great location”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We stayed here for three nights and found it to be in a great location. It is only a 5 min walk from hollywood blvd and attractions an we felt reasonably safe walking home, as it is quite busy. Napolean at the counter was very helpful and accommodating. A few of the younger staff were a bit more vague. The rooms were comfortable, although there was no laundry.

We had to leave very early to get to Vegas and asked the young girl at the desk if we could have breakfast organised for around 6, instead of 6.30, She told us this wouldn't be an issue, but when we checked out at 6.10 the next morning and went to the breakfast area, this was an issue. The staff talked to each other in another language and when we asked whether we could grab a few piece of bread to take, she told us that there was none. This was hard to believe given breakfast was open in 20 minutes. We instead, had a bowl of cereal that was already out, however when we asked for milk this was also an issue. Yes, breakfast technically wasn't open until 6.30 but given we had spoken to two staff members prior and it is only a continental breakfast where a loaf of bread and a toaster needed to be brought out from the store room which was 3 meters away, it didn't seem to be too much to ask for. We ended up leaving as it was clear we were not welcome. I went and got a glass of water 5 minutes later to take with me and as expected, the staff member was bringing out a loaf of bread from the store room. Sometimes, little things can be very helpful and make a stay much more enjoyable. Staff make a place, and some of the staff here could be a bit more friendly.

Location is good, but I will not walk at night. The room was clean but very tiny and the the lighting is pretty bad. I was expecting that there will be laundry facility but there was none. This hotel is pretty basic and we got for what we paid. The front desk staff was very helpful.

Son and I spent a week in L.A. this past July and while there we stayed at the Days Inn on Sunset. It was a wonderful stay. Not only was the staff extremely friendly and helpful but we were close to everything. we were able to walk to Hollywood Blvd and for most other places take a short cab ride or catch the Metro. Our main reason for going was to see Queen + Adam Lambert in concert and was thrilled to learn we were only about 15 miles out from the venue.

We had a suite with a queen bed which was perfect for us. We had plenty of room to move around and was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Our rooms were kept clean and well stocked everyday.

Breakfast was small just bagels, danishes, cereal along with juice, coffee and tea bit it was enough to keep us happy till lunch.

Overall our stay was a great one and when i go back this is my place of choice. Can't think of a better place to stay for such a great price.

Room Tip: Personally for me all the rooms are good ones however if you want a balcony to si on then ask for on...

The hotel is conveniently located close to Chase ATM, IHOP, gas station, in and out burger and 10 min walk to Hollywood walk of fame. The nearest metro station is Hollywood/highland and it's about 10 min walk from the hotel. The hotel has basic breakfast/ no eggs. The pool was small but nice. The service at the front desk should be improved as I thought the lady working there didn't like what she was doing. Overall rooms were okay, so I'd stay there again if needed.

For the price and location, this place was a home run. Being able to walk to all the Hollywood attractions made it worth its weight in gold. The room was clean, however, could use some upgrading. They are also on the small side, so keep that in mind if you have a family of more than 3. The underground parking garage for $10 per day was very convenienent. There is an inground pool which was ok.

This property is only fair in my opinion. Rooms were clean but in need of repair - baseboards coming off wall, for example. Breakfast was standard continental fare, I suggest going somewhere else for breakfast (like Mel's Diner a few blocks away - schlocky fun and pretty good food). You're splurging going to Hollywood, spend a few bucks extra for a nice meal.

Speaking of location - this is what this property has going for it. It's literally two blocks from the Hollywood Walk of Fame (and all the stars in the sidewalk). Two blocks from Grauman's Chinese Theater. Three blocks from Dolby Theatre. Walk everywhere in Hollywood.

Pretty reasonable rates, much cheaper than the boutique hotels in the area - and if you're a tourist, you shouldn't be spending time in your room anyway! Get out there and check Hollywood out! Take the Ultimate Hollywood Tour. It's fun.

Great location, great rooms, staff very helpful and friendly and a great price.

Only problem I had was the use of paper plates and cups provided every morning for the breakfast- this is totally environmentally unfriendly and so wasteful.

I did see that they try to be environmentally friendly with the bedding , but hopefully they could re think for the future about not using paper plates.
