Great location

Perfect place to stay if you want to be close to Los Felix, Silver Lake, or Echo Park. Very nice breakfast, great pool, and comfortable rooms. My room had a small balcony that faced an open patio area with fountain -- charming! I come to LA often, and I will definitely stay here again!

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.

Best kept secret in LA

I couldn’t sing the praises of this hotel more. Yes, the area that the location is in isn’t the best… but where in Hollywood is? Its about a 10 minute drive in any direction to get to the major hotspots (or a $8 Uber ride that are about a 4-min wait anywhere in LA). When we checked in, the staff was pleasant, helpful and prompt. The parking is additional, but thats typical too. But for the safety and the security, Ill gladly pay it. Its a large private lot that is lovely with fountains and plants… and a guard 24/7. The rooms were spacious and clean. It appears that they have all been renovated recently. Comfy beds, beautiful marble bathrooms. The hotel itself is pretty cool. The morning breakfast is a huge savings and really good. An omelet chef is there every morning making made-to-order omelets and scrambles. Waffles, sausage, fruit, pastries, cereal, juice, coffee and tea also available. There is an open-mic comedy show in the evenings thats kind of fun too at the bar. But above all else, the courtyard is straight out of a movie. Twinkle lights, wicker furniture, a nice breeze and fountains, its a little slice of heaven. There is a pool as well but we did not partake. I have already told all my friends, hands down, best hotel at the best cost you can find. I gambled and glad I did.

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.

good deal

Room on the first floor was comfortable except that all the noise in the hallway could easily be heard. Otherwise, the stay was very comfortable, and the location was great.

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.

Excellent hotel, excellent location!

The rooms were very spacious and the balcony overlooked downtown LA. The hotel is located very close to a few great landmarks to see in LA such as the Observatory and Hollywood Walk of Fame. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast in the morning was AMAZING! Overall this is an excellent place to stay for anyone making their first trip out to LA!
