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!

Good for my needs

I wanted something close to K-Town, so for me, the location was spot on. It was within walking distance to everything I needed access to. The room was comfortable, clean, and had everything I needed during my stay. I'm easy to please. A microwave would've been nice, given that I stayed for 5 days, but it wasn't a huge deal. They arranged for a mini-fridge to be put in the room upon my request, so that was nice. Bathroom was really nice too. Overall, it's pretty comfortable hotel that gets the job done. Awesome for anyone looking for easy access to K-Town and Wilshire Center.

Spacious clean room with awesome bed

Room was a little stark with no pictures on the walls, but was clean and quiet (with the fan helping to drown out some outside noise). Free parking garage that's locked up at about 1:00AM.

city trip

The hotel is currently doing renovations, but it is situated close to subway station and the stuff is really friendly. The rooms are very spacious and some of them renovated already. So we got good deal on this hotel and this was really worth it.

Great, comfortable hotel

I was down in LA visiting some friends who live all over LA and the surrounding cities. The hotel was in a very central area and even had a Ralph's nearby. The room was comfortable and pretty, very simple. There was no fridge in the room and the bathtub was broken... but despite that the room was great for the money I paid! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in LA for a quick visit, especially for business. It's a very bare-bones place that is great if you're not looking for super-luxury.

Nice place in a great location

Hotel was in a great location not far from Hollywood. You can get just about anywhere in town within 10 to 15 minutes. The free parking garage was a bonus as well! The rooms were nice, but bare. The staff was friendly and accomodating, if the room is missing something, just ask!
