If I had to choose again, I'd choose somewhere else.

Great location. Could use some improvement.

Pros: Location. Close to train/bus lines.
Cons: I had to buy my own soap. The room and towels were worn.
Location: Griffith Park and Observatory. 20 minute train ride to downtown.
I chose this hotel primarily for the location. There's a train line and several bus lines nearby, which made it pretty easy to get around the city. The staff was friendly and professional. The room, furniture, and towels were all pretty worn, but usable. There was a lot of street noise at night including sirens from the fire station a couple blocks up the road, so if you're a light sleeper, you might want to look elsewhere.

You get what you pay for....

When we arrived we had problems parking because other guests took 2 spaces in each of the open garages areas. The cigarette smell in the small lobby almost overwhelmed us. The hostess was very pleasant and had our room ready for us. The room, however, was extremely dated. No mirror in the bathroom, no sound insulation in the walls and our room was on the third floor. Lots of traffic noise and noise from other rooms. Fortunately the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast at the taco shop two doors down was very good.

Older hotel with character and charm

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Courtyard around the pool with potted flowers. Comfortable bed in comparison to Motel 6 and Hojo stays.
Cons: Newer windows would help reduce noise from Hollywood Blvd.
Location: Near Hwy 101 on ramps and a short distance to Walk of Fame, Sunset Strip and Santa Monica Blvd.
We spent two nights in LA. We reserved a single queen room. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We were given room 12. It's a first floor room over the parking area on the side of the building. When we first checked in a fire engine was dispatched (fire house is located just a couple blocks west of the hotel) and the sirens were quite loud. (Newer windows would do wonders) I was concerned that this was setting the stage for our stay but surprisingly sirens didn't disturb our sleep at all. The room was clean, the TV new and surprisingly large and the bed surprisingly comfortable (comfort of beds is always subjective, of course). The bathroom could have used a little more vanity space but not a huge issue. I read reviews including comments about the towels, they were perhaps not five star quality, but certainly adequate, and plentiful. The wifi wouldn't consistently connect but I'm not sure if that was my computer or the wifi. It was fine when I was connected. The neighborhood, while rough appearing in the immediate block had many great stores, restaurants, banks and such just to the east a very short walk away. Parking while tight at times, was free - a huge bonus- and we always found a spot in the lot. I love the courtyard feel with the pool and cheery flower pots all around. Hollywood Downtowner, a diamond in the rough. Excellent value for amenities, character and charm.

Our trip to Hollywood

Posted Apr 3, 2015
Great place to visit now if you are staying here make sure you don't drop the pole in the shower from holding on to the curtain it fell 3 times it's a lil cheap push in that hold to the wall when extended. Trbl opening window but beside that the bed was comfy. TV was nice the smell of the room goes away after 20 min in but if you leave and come back in it will smell a bit bad
