A little gem in LA
Great little hotel with a history you can feel. Just a block away form Hollywood Walk of Fame & LA's transport links. Hotel is a little worn in places but is clean & tidy. The staff are so helpful & go above & beyond to assist you.

8/10 Very good

Unique Hotel with Exceptional Staff
This hotel is unique and memorable. It is very close to the Hollywood Walk of Fame so is an excellent location for tourists and to catch the Hop on Hop off Bus. There are no elevators in this hotel so not ideal for those with heavy suitcases and/or mobility needs. The hotel is dated with cracked tiles, old fixtures and erratic plumbing. What makes this hotel memorable are the staff. They are all absolutely amazing. We had dealings with the maintenance staff, housekeepers, receptionists and management. Everyone is customer centric and amazing. What makes this hotel unique are the huge selection of free unlimited snacks, hot and cold beverages and the ice cream available to guests. The continental breakfast is of very good quality. The pool is heated. The suites are spacious.

Great for kids
Our kids loved this place - free ice-creams and popsicles was heaven for them! Beds were comfy and service wonderful. My only small complaint was the noise but what can you expect in Hollywood.
