    An okay stay”

    Booked here an hour before check-in because our Airbnb stay got cancelled last minute. Decent beds, tons of convenience outlets, but lighting and interiors are outdated (which gave us Filipinos that Western-serial-killer-thriller-movie-vibe if you know what I mean. It said in Agoda and Booking.com that there’s breakfast but the reception told us they stopped serving a month ago... at least there’s drinking water by the lobby. Overall a pretty okay stay for something we booked last minute

    The place was reasonable, for the price! The room was beautiful! The decorations was modern and stylish! The only thing I could say they need to improve is the quality of there continental breakfast, they ran out of food when we decided to have breakfast which was somewhat disappointing! Besides that it was a great stay!

    Capacious rooms and hotel”

    Hotel is build on very large area, good swimming pool and vast parking space. The rooms are too spacious with large TV. Location is bit off from Hollywood and the nearest metro is at distance. But the hotel itself is underrated, at this price its simply beats other hotels easily

    I had made a reservation for a room with two queen beds. When I checked in, they said they can get me a room with 3 queen beds. Instead of two for the same price, which was great, since I had two kids with me! The room was nice and clean. For breakfast they just had Waffles and cereal. I wish there was more of a option for breakfast, that was the only negative.

    room was clean as far as i could tell. bathroom smelled strongly of disinfectant upon arrival but not a big deal. there was no hot water, only warm water. we came back in the evening around 1 AM and there was not a single parking spot but the guy at the front desk let us park off to the side somewhere. overall, definitely worth the money we spent. location was great, beds comfy and clean. great value

    This place isn't bad for the price. No hassle on my pre-paid reservation - I was checked in quickly and the staff was friendly and professional. Off-street parking. Safe enough for families to stay at. My room was clean. The place has its own charm. I like it. I'll probably stay here again.

    Respect is more important”

    not worth the money, the motel is like a made up motel, dirty carpet, mole all over bathroom, the clean crew including the motel employee have no sense of respect as a formal hotel like when a customer puts the do not disturb sign on the door, it means do not disturb, they make their own rules, there is not sufficient parking, and not sufficient space to have a normal breakfast, they should have time limit for the size of the motel, blankets were dirty, as well as bed sheets and also ripped, mattress old and uncomfortable, after someone went in we missed some things, notified the from desk, they asked to call the police and make a report, no sense of responsibility or liability, person went in and didn't even clean anything, just put supposedly clean towels, doors of rooms are made up doors, not even secure formal doors, this just reminded me of a 3rd world motel, after service in the marines, and visited many countries, couldn't believe this type of motels exist in the USA.

    The staff only cared about how their doors cannot be unlocked/openned unless your key or their master key was used. Someone went in my room while I was asleep!!! The night staff was rude as heck! Make America Great Again by only allowing AMERICANS OWN BUSINESSES, NOT THESE ALIENS!!!

    Poor service ”

    Upon arriving Hollywood Inn, the staff gave a very unfriendly and unapproachable tone to "welcome" guests. Free parking is available for guests. Breakfast is served at this little room every morning and variety is minimal like coffee, tea , juices, cereals and waffles. They do state that they provide the basic necessities you need for your stay so in a way dont expect good service from them which i think it's abit ridiculous also. I do not understand how you can cater basic necessities to others without the basic formality of treating your guests well. And it was only directed to one particular staff. There was another staff who help us for our check-out and he was full of smiles and has great manners. So there were really extreme indifferences here and I dont see why this staff can do well and not another. It's merely attitude issues isn't it? Other than that, room is big and old. There were no facilities and near to it you can get food like Macdonalds, subway and it's near to petrol kiosks as well.

    Great experience with this centrally located hotel. Hotel room is very clean with many basic necessities provided. High speed internet is provided for the rooms. Only issue is the need to always go to front desk to ask for daily password to WIFI. Staff is very efficient and chambermaids clean up rooms with great care and efficiency. Great stay at this hotel, definitely recommend it to my friends.

The hotel employees are friendly and helpful and able to guide me to all the places of attractions and shopping malls around Anaheim. The area is quiet and safe to walk around even in the night.

    Nice and cheap with breakfast hotel in LA!”

    Good price, excellent breakfast and nice room!
    Not in touristic center of LA

    This hotel is a good, cheap hotel with a nice breakfast. Not the center of LA, but the bus stop to downtown and Hollywood and Beverly Hills is directly next to the hotel. The breakfast is very good. Delicious donuts! The public transportation is near and fast. Also to get downtown this hotel is a good starting point to discover downtown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the beaches at Santa Monica. Relaxed place to stay!

    Comfortable bed, clean, friendly. Pool. Great location for Los Angeles site seeing.
    Parking was a bit cramped.

    This was a very good budget hotel. It was clean, with a very comfortable bed. There was a swimming pool and continental breakfast included. The location is excellent -- right off the 101 freeway and close to many sites in Los Angeles. The only drawback was that parking was tight. Overall, this was a great bargain.

    The motel itself was ok, beside the mattresses very noisy (very old I suppose), the towels greyish instead of white (although they were washed and clean) and the constant smell of weed all around you. The down side was the area! Dirty and unsafe 24/7. Such a shame as the place has potentials

    Inexpensive for LA but quite reasonable”

    My daughter and I on a budget stayed here for a night. Our room was fine. For the price I didn't expect any pool, breakfast, or fridge but the room had all three. Breakfast was hot waffles or cold cereal and could have used a fresh fruit option. The room was not carpeted which I liked. The floor was clean in the middle but my daughter noticed dust around the edge. The bathroom was clean and functional, water pressure good, water hot. There were shutters on the window instead of curtains: they were attractive in the daytime but at night there was light leaking in so that the room wasn't really dark. Wifi worked. There was an interesting painting on the wall (the whole wall) of a Hollywood icon--ours was Elizabeth Taylor. The neighborhood is not a wealthy one but the property felt secure and safe. All in all I was very glad that we didn't spend more to stay elsewhere. We just needed a bed for a night on the way from here to there and this place was an economical choice.
