Decent economy choice

If you get a room rate under $100, this is a decent value. Rooms are small but nice. If you think this hotel is in "Hollywood" think again. It's a good 4-5 miles east of the Walk of Fame area and is not in a very nice neighborhood. Parking is $20 a night.

Huge Parking fee!! / Can not print a page!

I thought it was an impressive deal when I found this hotel. It is an old 3 story hotel with some renovations here and there. When checked in, was shocked to find out $22/night parking fee. It was not disclosed anywhere on the website.They charged my card upfront for parking 5 nights. Room was clean but really small. Window opened to courtyard but I never opened the blinds because there was no privacy at all due to very small courtyard. Breakfast: They make your eggs to order. Omelet vs scrambled. You have to ask the staff for a small cup of yogurt. Small selection of items like cereal, bread, and bananas. I booked some activities online and wanted to print the vouchers. There was no printer and the only way out was to download the itineraries to their desktop computer, save the file and email to hotel staff so they can print it out for you. So your itinerary is saved in their computer and email folder.

Useful Location for metro into Los Angeles

I stayed at this hotel rather than a downtown hotel to attend a conference in downtown Los Angeles. It was certainly good value compared to downtown hotels. The location is excellent being only a short walk from the Metro Station. The area is safe but a little run down. Breakfast was good but there was no restaurant for the evening. "Room Service" consisted of adverts for local takeaways. I found only fast-food restaurants within walking distance.

Good Value for the Money

We stayed primarily for a site visit to Raleigh and Paramount Studios for tours. Very convenient to both. There is a grocery store and plenty of restaurants near by and even an LA Metro stop. Close to highways (though best to avoid them if possible). 2 Queen beds were nice with fridge and microwave. Parking adds another $22 per day, so consider that in your price comparison. Hotel elevator slow, so best to stay on lower floors and take the stairs. Complimentary breakfast was nice with omelet bar and waffles, but not enough variety to keep it interesting for 7 days. Good central location if seeing lots of various LA sites, but about a 45 min drive to the ocean. Overall, a good value for a decent LA hotel if you are looking for something in a moderate price range.

Our Stay

The employees were very friendly, Loved the ladies at the front desk, all employees were very helpful. Was very clean for as old as the hotel was. The breakfast was very good, loved that there was a chef making omelets per your request. The only complaint was that the fan in the room was either off or on did work as a thermostat. So we would have to turn it off and on, was not convenient:( Also the towels could have been nicer, very old and not soft. Bed was very hard.

Leave your car at hotel and take public transportation, the parking anywhere you go is $20.00-$25.00 very high.

Great for visiting Hollywood

If you plan to spend most of your time visiting Hollywood, Universal, etc. this is perfect. The Metro is 2 blocks away and you can easily get anywhere. If you want to go to the beach, plan an hour drive. The hotel is nice for a place to crash and breakfast is good. The picture is actually the back of the hotel so don't look for that when you're pulling in.

My review of Ramada Hollywood near Universal Studios

Staff was not friendly. Hotel did not have an indoor pool or hot tub. Breakfast choices were limited and repetitive 5 days in a row. Our hotel room door was left open after maid service. It had been left that way for an entire day. Hotel bar was not open from Thursday to Saturday. Rain kept us indoors more, so a friendly hotel bar to socialize at would have been nice. Good hotel location for accessing Hollywood's sites. Parking too expensive.

Surprised

We were surprised to fine out they charge $16.00 per night to park your car there. The rooms have NO air-conditioning. So it was hot in the rooms. Not happy at all.

Very good!

Two of my older children flew in from Hawaii and stayed at the hotel with us. The accommodations at the hotel were prefect (rooms that were side-by-side). However, the only draw back to our stay at the hotel was that we are avid coffee drinkers. The coffee provided in our rooms was insufficient and we were not permitted, by the staff to take coffee from breakfast area. We asked for more coffee to be put in ours rooms, but it was a hit or miss.
