Good reasonably priced hotel in Hollywood.

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: The rooms need a bit of TLC. There was a weird smell in my room, probably because of its age but it was slightly offensive.
Location: Thai place, a supermarket, a Starbucks and some eateries within 5 minutes walk. Subway station really close so you can get anywhere.
I wanted a hotel that was convenient enough for me to go places without a car in Hollywood and the Hollywood Downtowner Inn is definitely that. It is really close to the subway stop and only 30 mins away from Hollywood Boulevard. There is a nice Thai place, a supermarket, a Starbucks and some eateries nearby. The rooms are a bit old and the bed is not super comfortable but it is clean enough, and the price is reasonable so I was pretty happy. And there are no bed bugs! That was a big worry while I was travelling so I was pleased. The staff is the reason that I would go back. Both the man and the woman who was at the front desk while I was there were pleasant and friendly.

Right on the Hollywood Blvd close to the Metro!

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Very nice people, free parking, the rates were reasonable but reflects the age of the building. Security was adequate.
Cons: A little paint and sheetrock work could really shine this place up. Our balcony window/door wouldn't open to our displeasure.
Location: As the metro is one block away you can just about go anywhere in LA. The walk of fame is right up the Blvd, Universal Studios is close also and fun.
My gal and I spent two nights here. We arrived early, though our rooms weren't ready there was no problem leaving our bags and hitting the streets for an afternoon at the Thai Town New Years festival only two blocks away. The whole street was blocked off, lots' of fun. The next day we went to Universal Studios for the day, the Metro subway was only 1 block away. When we came back our rooms were freshened up. Breakfast was a couple of doors away in this delightful place called "The House of Tacos". Funny name for the usuall breakfast fair of eggs, meat, potatoes and waffles. Run by a pleasant Jamaican fellow who liked to play his reggae music up loud, but hey, it's LA man!

just a good location

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: hotel could use a makeover
Location: the location was good, close to buses, the metro and a quick walk to walk of fame.
rooms not sound proof at all, we were woken up at 4am to some lady screaming at someone in her room across the hall, and a lady yelling and swearing somewhere in the hotel on another night. the hotel is right be a main fire hall so there is constant sirens at all hours. rooms were also pretty run down and many mornings there was no hot water. pool was dirty. the breakfast buffet was okay but seemed like it was just re heated left overs every day. could probably find a nicer place for a similar rate

Had a great stay.

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: Clean, comfortable, friendly, fairly priced, nice pool, centrally located.
Cons: No complaints.
Location: You can walk to Thai Town for good food, and short drive to other Hollywood stuff... Venice Beach, Sunset Strip, Walk of Fame, Griffith Park, etc.
Very clean and comfortable, with a nice pool area. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I believe it's family owned and operated, which I prefer to support. It appears they've put a lot of work into remodeling. It's close to Thai town, so a lot of good food nearby. I will be staying here every time I come to LA from now on.

Nice hotel,clean,staff very nice.

Posted Apr 5, 2014
We arrived early but our rooms were not quite ready they let us take our luggage in and rest after our train ride while they finished. Hot breakfast at the Taco shop next door was very good and the chef was engaging and cheerful. Staff was very nice. The owners at the front desk were very helpful,even let us store are luggage for several hours after check out since our train ride didn't leave till later. Overall nice place.

Good location

The hotel is in a good location for travelling around the city, there are quite a few places to eat nearby as well. The hotel itself is ok, general condition isn't perfect but it's comfortable place to stay. You get what you pay for!

Basic room. Good price

Posted Feb 27, 2014
Pros: Breakfast
Location: If you like Thai food you're in the middle of Little Thailand. About a 5-10 minute walk to the Walk of Stars but I don't suggest it late at night.
Clean room, comfortable bed, good shower. No frills but a a bargain. Very helpful front desk. Free parking and wifi much appreciated.
