2 night stay

It's definitely a 2 star hotel. The staff was great! They were very accommadating. The free breakfast, free parking, and free wifi were a great value. The room itself was a little disappointing. There were soft spots on the floor. It felt like they need to redo the floors for safety. The bathroom was gross! It was not cleaned properly. The shower had very little water pressure. The bed was comfy but there wasn't a safety latch on the door so that was a little scary. It was a great value for the money and you pay for what you get.

Good value

We arrived and were immediately upgraded from two double beds to tow king size beds in a suite room with a full kitchen. The hotel was fairly clean, however it was located in a pretty rough area of town approximately 10-15 minutes from the beginning of the hollywood walk of fame. Breakfast in the morning was delicious!

"Close Enough...but Not Far Away"

The location was perfect for us because we wanted to be close to venues but not in the middle of the tourist area. The staff was warm and welcoming too! We wanted to try the complimentary breakfast but took part in events all night and slept during the day. Noise level = didn't hear a soul :)

Affordable Thai restaurants and coffee shop within walking distance. There is a Pier One very close...I went to "window shop" and came back with a bag of merchandise!
