Decent 2-star hotel

Good location but some problems. When we arrived after check-in time, the building was locked and there was no doorbell. We had to rely on a resident who happened to be walking his dog to let us in. The hotel was poorly run and we had to park several blocks away as only street parking is available. The place was clean and the staff nice. The wifi only worked the first night (we stayed 2 nights).

I don't understand the bad reviews

Maybe these other reviews were at a bad time, i'm not sure. All I know is the place is renovated, it's clean, it's quiet, and the people are helpful. The area is fine and parking is okay if you understand the concepts of parking in Los Angeles. If you're looking for some Comfort Inn with a parking lot, this isn't it. If you've never been to LA, this place is no different than what you'd expect elsewhere. This is a "green" hotel, and these are studio apartments, and yes there are other tenants there, but there were no issues. They have laundry onsite, and they do charge $5 a day to clean your place if you want. It's more or less you are staying at someone's place. The rooms are renovated with tiles and the showers are redone. Not all rooms have a/c units, as mine didn't, but cmon you're in California, you're not really going to need it, and i'm a bigger guy. There's a fridge, microwave, tv, and gas oven there. There is direct tv, but not much for channels. There is wifi that can usually reach all the rooms, but they had an issue there with the internet for a portion of my stay. The room did have a smell, but the place is old, and if you're overly picky, then maybe it's not the place with you. I did not witness a single bug on my week-long stay. Also, breakfast and coffee were provided every morning. You can't beat the location as Paramount is literally across the street, and you're 3-4 blocks from Sunset and Hollywood blvd. Make sure if you use a taxi, you use the "alternate" ones, download the app, you'll get a $20 credit, and it's only about $10-15 round trip depending on destination. Lastly the staff there is very helpful and nice. Also if you're into haunted destinations, this is definitely a spot to check out. The place has great charm and they continue to work on the place. Maybe they realized their wrongs in the past, but some of these bad reviews are very recent and I can't understand it. They ended up comping me 2 days b/c i stayed for a week. Yeah I didn't spend every waking moment in my room, but if you're doing that, why the are you in hollywood? As for the people complaining about checking in late, even my information stated to call ahead to let them know of your check-in time. They have the front door closed for a reason at night, as does everywhere. And don't call the day of, let them know in advance you are coming in late. They are pet friendly too. The place is fine for a single or couple, but a family the space might not be there.

It did the job

This was only OK. I needed a bed, as I was in LA attending an event and was speeding a minimal time at the motel. The first night I arrived late, to a locked door, and was unable to check in, as they close their front desk at night. When I brought it up the next night, the manager was unsympathetic and told me I should have showed up earlier. Parking is not easy, and I received a parking ticket one morning. Outside of that-if you JUST need a place to sleep, this will do just fine. if you're planning spending time in your room, I would look somewhere else.

Very unique

I had no issue with this place. Staff were very nice. My room felt very homey. Only thing they need to do is invest in ac units for the rooms with no ac. Other than that location was good and I'd recommend it .

STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM THIS DUMP

We checked in late and were led into a dark stinky "office." When we got into the room, it looked nice on the surface. But after being in the room and checking it out it was a nightmare. The bathroom was full of mold with one towel. The "kitchen" was a filthy mess. There were 2 plastic chairs in there and one of the chairs had a puddle of liquid in it that looked like urine. The fridge was filthy inside and noisy, we finally unplugged it. The stove was nasty and one of the gas burners was on?! When we sat on the beds they were like sitting on a cardboard box that was covered in plastic. Yes, the beds had plastic covers on them. When my son pulled back the comforter, the one bed was full of hair. At this point we went down to the office to the "office," no one would open the door. Went back up to the room and called, let it ring for 5 minutes but there was no answer. In the meantime there were people out on the sidewalk arguing and making a lot of banging noises. I called this travel site, they helped us get into a different hotel, they also could not get a hold of anyone at this pit. Although we only spent about 2 hours in this room, the next day the hotel refused to give me a refund and charged me for 2 nights. On top of a $20 cab ride to the new hotel. This travel site would not help me with the hotel refund so I will need to find other means to get my money back. This was my first experience booking through this site and I will never book through them again. I asked numerous times to speak with a supervisor but they kept telling me one was not avail even though I was on hold for over 30 minutes while the supervisor looked into the "situation." Don't be fooled by this "quirky" hotel, because "quirky" in this case means FILTY DIVE.

Great old hollywood resident hotel

It's not fancy or new, but for the price this was an amazing place to stay. Across from Paramount and walking distance to Hollywood and Vine... you can pay ten times more for a place not half as convenient.

quirky

booked it for the price and location. it proved right, esp. if Hollywood is what you wanna explore. the exterior had us puzzled but it gives it that bit of original touch.. had problem with shower which was swiftly resolved to complete satisfaction. staff were friendly and helpful, room lovely, kitchen handy extra. the only minus points are for cleaniness. had few hair in bed, the floor needs good scrub and theres few places that need duster attention more often. comfortable to live around it though.
