Hollywood Inn Express South ★★

Overall Review

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 26, 2008
The continental breakfast needs much improvement (only gooey donuts and rolls were provided along with coffee and powdered orange juice). Even though the hotel was not at full capacity, the hotel staff initially denied our request for additional towels and pillows. They DID fulfill our request late in the evening that first day. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well as did the shower, sink etc.. I beleive that with some minor, inexpensive changes and perhaps more attentive and cordial staff, this hotel would easily receive higher scores.

Attractions

Many attractions are close by - China Town is one and it was amazing.

DIRTY INSIDE & OUT!!

Would not recommend Tue, Apr 22, 2008
This Hotel was ABSOLUTELY disgusting! I'm so glad we only stayed one nite. THe blankets were OBVIOUSLY unwashed, there was a bloody band-aide in the restroom on the floor, and the trash cans were not emptied. Our nite was spent trying to avoid getting diseases or infection from the room. It is very close to Highway 101, but that didn't make up for the awful time we had. And, there were terrible donuts in the morning. The pool was ABSOLUTELY FILTHY! I wasn't planning to swim anyways, but seeing the pool made me GLAD i didn't bring my suit! THE WHOLE PLACE IS FOUL! Invest a little more in a HALFWAY DECENT place! DON't WASTE YOUR MOEY OR TIME HERE!!!!! I IMPLORE YOU!!!!!

Very comfortable

Would recommend Fri, Jan 25, 2008
This hotel was very clean. The staff there were polite. The room was very big and had enough space for the two of us. The closet space was well oraganized. most of the things you can shove in a suitcase were there iron,ironing table, hair dryer etc. Theres so many cars but then it could have been the holiday traffic. overall my stay here was very well enjoyed and i would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Time saver

Hotel was close to the high way to all the attractions in that area not rididcoulously close to ware you could here all the trucks at night but a comfortable distance.

Reasonable Price, but some confusion

Would recommend Tue, Nov 27, 2007
Our stay was a mixed bag. The check in was friendly and last minute due to a mix-up at another motel. The room needed some cleaning (light switches and doors were grimy). My wife bought some cleaner for that. The beds are a little hard. Some confusion when we extended our stay. They acidentally rented the room to someone else who walked in on my wife in bed. i got home later, and was awoken in the middle of the night to come down to the front desk to straighten it out. We got it straight, but it was a little upsetting. At least this staff was friendly. At the other motel they wer very uncooperative and rude. I would recommend this place for someone looking for simple accomodations. Nothing fancy here, but friendly staff.

Great place for the price

Would recommend Mon, Nov 12, 2007
Hollywood Express Inn is in a great area and very accessible to the freeway. The room was clean and comfortable with two queen size beds. There are plenty of eating places in the area. We were on the 1st floor which was more convenient for the amount of bags we had. The hallway on the 1st floor needs more lighting and the carpet could be cleaned better!

checking in

Would not recommend Sun, Sep 30, 2007
Room was not ready until after 4:30 in the afternoon. I had to keep calling down to the lobby for someone to come clean the room. Finally after 4-5 calls I tracked down a maid and bribed her with 10 dollars to please clean the room. The management seemed to care less about my situation, even when I asked for a different room he just kept saying my room was goint to be cleaned within 10 to 20 minutes, which never happened. I am very dissatisfied with this hotel and will never NEVER stay there again!!
