First time out west

The place was nice, if a bit lacking in amenities. The bed was comfy, the room was clean, and the whole place was generally quiet, even though I was right next to the pool. There was a mini fridge and a large TV, but the TV only got about 5 channels and the best were still a little fuzzy. The location is not in a touristy area, so if you didn't drive or rent a car, you will be ordering delivery or taking the bus to eat out. The WiFi password is only good for a day, so if you're staying a while, you will be need to keep that in mind. The staff was very friendly though, so it wasn't a hassle. While it is definitely not a resort, if you're looking for a clean, comfy place to stay in L.A. on the cheap it fits the bill. The bus/subway rides to both Sunset and Hollywood were pretty easy to navigate with Google maps, and didn't take very long either.

Worth the price

This place is alright. I only used it as a place to rest. The room didn't smell good; I had to leave the windows open for some time. Bottom Line - I got what I paid for; so I am not complaining.

Hotel ratings

This hotel has potential but needs some TLC. Things that get fixed are not fixed with quality. Curtains and bed spread were shabby, mattress worn out, TV intermittantly got static, and woke the next morning seeing bugs in the bed.

Good for what it is

Honestly, I got what I paid for. It wasn't noisy, but it is in a roughish neighborhood. No security latch on the door. Wouldn't take a family here, but it was fine for just me. The fridge in the room was nice to have.

It is very nice, but no internet

It is a very nice Inn. It closes to downtown. The only problem is no internet.

Not A Bad Place

I stayed at the Hollywood Express Inn South for 7 days and 8 nights while on vacation in LA. If you have a lot of money and want something more luxurious with restaurants/bars, then don't stay here. Also, if you want to be closer to the main attractions of LA like Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, then don't stay here. If you're looking for a decent, plain motel in LA without paying a lot of money, then stay here. The location isn't too bad. I didn't have any problems with safety. It's in a central area, between downtown LA and Hollywood. It's better to have an automobile while staying at this hotel, because the buses by the hotel don't run too rapidly and are very slow at times. There aren't any nice restaurants nearby either. The motel had a nice, large room. The bed was comfortable. There weren't many channels on the TV, but why come to LA just to watch TV? The bathroom was clean. The heat worked well. Everything was neat for the most part. I didn't use the pool, but it appeared to be clean, yet small. The staff was friendly. Overall it's not a bad place to camp out while exploring the City of Angels. It's not luxury, but it's not a dump either.
