Helter Shelter

Decent and clean accommodations, no frills. Secure parking provided, which is very nice. Seems like a residential neighborhood, quiet. I stayed here for a night's stay during a conference in Hollywood, and it met my needs.

If you're tourist inc in Hollywood, the public parking at Highland Center is a great deal ($13 all day) and close to everything!

Decent room

The room was huge with modern decor. Bathroom was pretty. Problem is there's a crack on the top of our door, walls are thin and missing iron/iron board.

Some surprises but overall OK

No blankets on the bed but staff brought a great cotton one. Tub lever failed to block drain - took a shower instead. Garage ceiling height very low. Our Land Rover with roof rack was .5" too high in one spot - big noise but no damage. Lobby is under construction. Street vendors ply their wares in early evening with clown horns and musical ice cream truck music. But this did not run late. Easy walk to 6th Street and restaurants and Korean market.

A Friend's Apartment

The room was average, the bed and bath were great, but the staff was phenomenal. Every hotel employee that I encountered was genuinely kind and helpful. It was like crashing at a good friend's sparsely decorated apartment. Pet friendly.

Good place to rest

We went for a weekend getaway and decided on this place because of location and price...it wasn't bad but there is a lack of storage for clothes...we had to ask for more hangers, which the staff did get us more...there was no fridge or microwave so that didn't help....n on the day we were leaving they started working on the pool at 8am which we heard every hammering sound from our room...so we didn't get to sleep in...overall if you're just looking for a place to sleep its not bad, but if u need more then a bed and bathroom, you should go some where else....hopefully when they finish remodeling they'll add amenities to the room or at least the main lobby....

Could use a little extra help

Overall the experience was good and some not so good. They don't have towel hooks or somewhere to dry your towels.. The elevator might need some better air circulation. The gentleman during the day was very nice and accommodating. I think they were going for a very simple clean look for the rooms. But it doesn't help when you need certain common things like..hair dryer (you can request for one and they will bring one up) no place to hang your clothes. TV was definitely on the smaller side. The cleaning crew kept knocking on the door in the morning to check if we need towels and to ask if we were going to check out 10 minutes before the check out time which was pretty annoying (Wish there was a do not disturb tag we could have used) The hallways do need some work. Not a very pleasant feeling or look. Very cold and kind of eerie feel. Bed was comfy, location was great, so so experience overall. A few little changes will make me book my next stay here but for now I might look to see what my other options are for my money.

Soonwon Korean BBQ is some of the best I've had. Try the house special bbq meat. Not cheap but it was worth it.
