avoid!

I booked this in a hurry and misread the property’s name (thinking the first word was 'Holiday'), which is a far cry from the reality of this property. It is not in a good part of town, there are vagrants and questionable random folks loitering outside rooms at all times of day, there is not enough parking, the building is very run-down, the beds are VERY HARD and uncomfortable, only 1 thin blanket is provided, the heater did not work, the wi-fi is very slow and unstable, the walls are paper-thin, the manager attempted to double-charge me (didn’t seem to understand I'd prepaid on the site..), the phone in the room did not work… and it was generally overpriced for slum that was provided.

good parking lot

Clean but kinda old tv without controller, one refrigerator good. Clothes drawers, table, Big parking lot. Good to reach every place in la with a car. We stayed for 5 nights in this hotel, we got a rental car so used the parking lot very well here. Big parking lot for free. Breakfast... waffle machine was poor and only two machines so it took so long time. Good area to stay. Not loud. But sometimes drunk people loud outside of hotel behind the hotel street. One rerefrigerator in a room was good for fruits and drinks. Many restaurants are near the hotel.

Good stay.

Me and my boyfriend went out to a near by club so it was convenient to stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly. Overall we booked the hotel to party not for luxury.

Excellent Cheap Hotel

We stayed at this hotel on vacation over the Memorial Day Weekend. It is an excellent hotel for the price and its conveniently located between Hollywood and downtown. It is clean and the service is very friendly. For the price, you probably won't be able to get anything better in LA. The only downside is that their wi-fi did not reach our room even though they advertised internet service; therefore, we had to use the i-phone for internet. Other than that, it is a great hotel.

Very comfortable

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.
