Good points: the inn is in a fantastic location, and the greenery and outdoor furniture are nice, and the staff is friendly. But the new ownership has a lot more work to do to make this a classy place to stay.

Here are a few of the problems:

1. The rooms are barely adequate. Mine smelled musty and mildewy. There was a small hole in the wall, almost nothing in the way of decor and no alarm clock or telephone. The bed was comfy, but be careful if you sit on the edge of the mattress because you may fall off.

2. The bathroom in my room was sad and poorly maintained. The shower was a challenge to operate, the towels were thin and skimpy (although you can ask for extras at the desk), and there was more of that musty smell, possibly because of poor ventilation.

There was no place to store bathroom stuff because the sink was tiny.

3. The pool is uniquely designed and warm-ish at night, although it could use some pool toys to float on. (There's none that I could see.) It closes at midnight for some reason, although they didn't kick people out at that time.

I read somewhere that the pool is natural, possibly full of salt water. It didn't seem like it, but there wasn't a smell of chlorine either, making me wonder how they clean it.

4. Jacuzzi: I heard there used to be one, and maybe there still is. If so, it's not working.

5. The steam room is a disaster: It smells heavily of mildew, and made me think I'd go home with some lovely fungal condition.

6. It was a bit of a bathhouse on one weekend night, with various escapades going on in various rooms. And the smell of pot was prevalent. If you're not bothered by these things, you shouldn't have a problem. Nobody was out of line.

7. The place is indeed clothing-optional. But like most such places, you're not likely to see much nudity outside of sun-bathers during the day. It's more of a nighttime thing.

8. Women: Yes, they're around. That's very unusual for a clothing-optional gay place.

Room Tip: Supposedly there are remodeled rooms. Make sure to ask for one.

We had enjoyed staying here a couple of times about 10 years ago, so we were a little disappointed to read some of the reviews before we went, but we took the chance and were very glad we did. The location, of course, is ideal, and the setting of bungalows around the pool is a retreat from the city, as well as a good way to meet other guests. The staff were very knowledgeable about the area and eager to help. One of us uses a wheelchair and they were exceptionally accommodating to make sure things went smoothly for us in terms of accessibility. We will certainly stay here again--and again.

Stayed at the resort and was very disappointed, i took pictures to show the state of the place.. They gave me a room with view of the pool.. I dont mind if the room is not a 5 stars but I expect a room to be clean... Not the case.

I send pictures to the managment and express my disappointement and 3 months later, I have heard back from them, so that is a sign that they dont care.

My recommandation is to stay away, it is unfortunate as the location is great.

Room Tip: bad experience!

Dear YvonLo
Thank you for your review and appreciate your comments. Since your last stay in May 2013, the property was acquired by new ownership. I cannot comment on previous management however we have spent time and money to ensure the rooms and property are cleaned and maintained. We do hope you will consider returning to see the changes we have made. Please feel free to reach out to the manager Jacinto at any time.
Regards,

Let me firstly say I love the way this place is laid out, the rooms are huge which in West Hollywood is rare thing and location is second to none. The staff were fine. However that's where anything really positive stops.

The furniture in the room is old worn out and cheap, considering the price you pay to stay here a quick trip to Ikea to replace everything in the room would be an easy option. The beds weren't all that comfortable.

The place was only sort of clean.

The bathrooms had rust in them as the sink was on a cheap metal frame. The towels were old and small.

It's not gay exclusive which is a shame as that would make it so much better, well if they sorted out the rooms and cleaned the place up a bit.

Parking is tight there with up to 3 cars parked nose to tail in their carpark, they do have another building across the road with much easier parking, the sort where you don't have to ask the staff to move other peoples cars so you can get yours out.

For how much you pay to stay here and find somewhere else the Ramada down the road is a much better option.

Rooms are cosy and well equipped.
Service is good. Pool is heated but they dont let you swim after midnight.
Peaceful and green garden and patio. Just of main street in west hollywood.
Internet doesnt reach all the rooms and its not free. They also charge for parking.
