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!
would stay again”
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.
My luggage, my phone, a pair of shoes, and my US ARMY RING were stolen while i was asleep!”
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!!!
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.
Everything is ok. except noizy air conditioner”
1. Breakfast is good. waffle, coffee, milk, mango juice is served. 2. Parking lot is small and not enough. 3. noisy air conditioner.
it is what it is
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
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.
Good and clean room with high speed internet”
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 is located in dowtown Los Angeles. It is within walking distance of the bus terminal and Chinatown. There is nothing esspecially remarkable about the place. Not a bad choice if you get it at a good price.
A good hotel amongst the Best”
My family and I am very satisfied staying in Castle Inn. It is centrally located and close to the restaurants and convenient stores. Its only about 5 minutes walk to Disney Land and Theme Park. 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!”
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!
Fine Budget Hotel”
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.
Old place, bad quality mattresses, grey towels (supposed to be white)”
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.
I was humiliated in front of other guests and the manager said agoda called them and said ”
That I was a fraud and that’s imposible because this was my first time booking a room online and this is what happens! Wow and the manager was very rude and just in professional I hope no one ever has to go thru what I just did now I’m outside in the curb not knowing if it was agoda or the hotel or both I’m so disappointed.
It’s cheap, but that would describe the cleanliness, staff, & facilities. I guess with this hotel, you really pay for what you get. Location isn’t that great either; all of our loved ones were surprised that we were staying on that street. It’s one of the dirtiest hotels I’ve been to. The floor is sticky & you have to walk with slippers or socks unless you want dirty feet. It’s comparable to walking barefoot outside, I guess. In the 5 nights we were there, each receptionist, except for the one on our last night, was rude. As for the facilities, there’s a pool that is in the parking lot only blocked off with a gate; there’s also a small washer & dryer.
Do not go here! ”
This was the worst place I have ever stayed in. It was absolutely disgusting. The staff was extremely rude. You pay online and then you get there and they make you put down $100 cash deposit if you don’t have a credit card and then try to not give it back to you at check out. The rooms are horrendous. The shower and sink both had hair in it. The sheets had so many stains. We had a used toilet paper roll left in our room. The ice machines were disgusting and the whole place smelled. No water. No coffee. Do not stay here! I stayed at the Hollywood Inn Express North the night before and it was amazing! I wish I would have paid the extra just to stay there one more night. I also wish I could get a refund. No one should have to experience that hotel ever!
Breakfast is very bad. Only have waffles, cereals, juice and coffees. And the table there is not enough.
Terrible service ”
Very Bias and somewhat racist towards African Americans
Place provides a place to sleep and shower”
Pros: Centered around majority of places we wanted to go; Korea Town, China Town, and close to LA shopping. Cons: noisy and close to busy traffic.
Great place to stay with breakfast
A lot of bad reviews about this place , I stayed here no issues no problems, close to everything .
The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly! Rooms were clean! Very good location. Thank you for an awesome stay!
friendly staff. we got upgraded to a bigger room.
great location, good value”
Good place to stay in LA while on a budget. Would stay here again.
Not as presented on the website”
I recommend using another hotel
Avoid this hotel. Awful location in filipino town. Horrible self service breakfast. ”
Good value for the price”
The breakfast and seating was a little limited. The room however was nice. A microwave and coffee pot would've been nice though.
Budget friendly and essentially perfect”
Just great overall experience. Next to everything and the view of the city was great
If you have to stop”
Me and boyfriend needed a place to stay at last minute, this place was cheap and for the price (we paid $89.00 for one night) it was perfectly fine. It had older carpet in the room but other than that it actually was pretty ok.
Don't expect much...”
Great if you need somewhere to lay your head overnight other than the street. Other than that, spend your money to get a comfy room somewhere else. I promise you won't be disappointed. This place was so overbooked there was no place for me to park. I didn't feel safe either. Too much activity in the parking lot in the wee hours of the morning (2am). The room's lighting sucks. It's too low. The bed was hard. The bathroom was ok. Only good for showers only. Please check for bed begs...even though we didn't have any, I read in other reviews that 's few people found some. Good for one night overnight. After that, MOVE ALONG.
Good stay for group ”
This is one of the cost-effective places to stay at when travelling in a group of 3-4. It is around 20 mins away from various places to see the Hollywood sign from and the Walk of Fame. Overall it was a nice stay and there are some cheap eateries nearby. The McDonald's and Subway are at a stone's throw. There is a filling self serve breakfast provided by the hotel. I was quite pleasantly surprised to see waffles for breakfast! The staff are nice and polite.
Budget Establishment ”
Depending on the rate the establishment is good value for the money. It's located in a central area of downtown. There's free parking although on the weekends it can get full. Microwave and refrigerator. The pictures online for this hotel don't resemble the actual rooms so don't be fooled! I've seen this motel increase the rate at 120$ -__- I would never! Decent stay for overnight
Can't really expect anything”
We booked this hotel because of the price and location, nothing more. Standard roadside motel with parking lot, our room was old with dingy lights. One staff was extremely unfriendly, no smile no hello. His answers were short and blunt. Internet was not stable. The breakfast they provided was just some cereal, coffee and waffles.
a good budget hotel with average breakfast”
I think it was average stay at hollywood inn with close to red line metro which is the fastest way to catch all the major attraction in los anglese. But in their room they use too strong cleaner which stay in your mind for long time and may be a turnoff your mood to stay. I will suggest after clean the room they should open window for little while for fresh air which is better then their cleaner. There are some cheaper option close to that inn such as another hollywood inn and travel inn which is little cheaper then this one. This area also dont give u secure feeling so better to think again if u are walking around with your partner.
It's a place to stay, nothing more.”
The beds are very hard and uncomfortable. The toilet was leaking so there was water on the floor at all times. After alerting the front desk, the leak was fixed in a timely manner. The remote didn't work for the TV. The cable had very few selections. The room was old and looked dirty. The refrigerator door was hard to open and didn't keep things very cold. The motel is located in a sketchy part of town -- we heard a LOT of police sirens. The only thing good about the room was that it had a lot of outlets. We had enough outlets to charge all of our devices at the same time.
Bare Bones Hotel Room”
This is a bare bones hotel room. If you need no creature comforts than this is a value for you. If you have kids do not plan on spending any time in your room or at the hotel. The Pool is a little bigger than a lap pool and is not heated. The "cable TV" did Not get local channels or consistently work plus it was not a flat screen. The wifi provided access for one device per room. For business trip it was adequate, located right off the 101 near downtown and a few miles from Hollywood, close to Dodgers stadium. Not a hotel to relax at.
It was horrible, run down, broken furniture, dirty”
Asked for a non-smoking and computer put me in smoking. Couldn't change it. When I checked in there were no non smoking rooms available. It was the lowest of the low. It was a filthy dive. The entire building should be condemned.
My stay was disappointing.”
First walking in my room it was cool. Then I noticed there was not a comforter on my bed, my remote did not work for my tv so I had to get up every time I wanted to change the volume or channel. I open the curtains and noticed there was a space between the center of the window and the part that you move to open and there was looked like a bullet hole in the window. The restroom smelled like mold and the was were dirty with grime. My fridge had no shelves and the nossle to turn on the bath was very loose.
good location and parking ”
room is spacious for double bed but deco is old . no coffee maker , no microwave . tv channel just has few .not many channel you can watch . breakfast is very simple ,the color of milk is kind of faded , i tasted it a little bit . it tasted like that it mixed a lot of water .
Good for bus to farmers market, grove n U.Studios”
Motel is 30min out from LAX n a $60usd cab fare (not inc. tips). Buses to the grove, farmers market are about 10min walk, bus to downtown LA is just down the street. You need to change from the bus to the rail if going to hollywood & universal studios but it's easy enough to do. Buy a day pass if ur going to Hollywood n grab a timetable so u don't spend forever waiting for the bus. The Internet works but drops out if many other ppl are using it. It's not too noisy but if ur room is by the pool n people are using it, you'll hear them...so bring ear plugs? The breakfast is nothing fancy either, just one type of cereal n sugar doughnuts. The closest food place is subway n burger king is at the next intersection. Make sure u eat out when ur out n about!
clean and old.”
This hotel would be great if you had a car. It isnt really close to anything but the 12 block walk to a train station or a bus ride down the street. the transportation isnt very good in LA. The traffic was loud when we stayed there.the area wasnt the greatest. the room was clean... breakfast was doughnuts
overview to Hollywood Inn Express South hotel”
The hotel cost seems cheap with US$75 / room night, but the hotel services are nothing : swimming pool is very small, wifi is very poor, telephone in room no work. No restaurant , the breakfast is served with some donuts and coffee on a small table in a corner of hotel lobby (8:30AM is empty). No Bus station to Holywood boulevard area near by the hotel (We must rent a car for visiting the walk of fame)
This hotel is okay if all you are looking for is a place to sleep. The continental breakfast constisted of some donuts and coffee or orange drink which was discontinued after 9:00 AM. The room was clean; however it did need some maintenance. The supply of towels ameties was skimpy. On the last night of our stay the TV lost reception and when I asked the room service, all that they would say is sorry for the inconvenience. When the hotel is near capacity, the parking lot becomes overflowing and difficult to navigate or park.
Hollywood Inn Express South Hotel”
The receptionist was good and friendly. The location is not too far from train station...about 10 minutes walking distance. Public buses are easily to take. Talking about room, it is worth what you paid. If you from LAX, you need to take train (red, green and blue) to get there. The nearest station to the hotel is McArthur. From the station you can take a bus or just walking to the hotel....that is good excercise:) If you're in St Alvarado, you will feel like second land of Mexico. A lot of Mexican staying there. Crowded sometimes. The Environtment a bit dirty.
did the job”
i had heard a lot of not-so-great things about this hotel, so i was expecting much less. but when i arrived i was pleasantly surprised. its clean, seemed safe (its up a steep driveway, a good distance from the street), and the staff was professional. there's nothing glamorous about it, but it does the job. no weird smells or stains or sounds...etc. i'd recommend it if you need a place to stay, and nothing more.
LA iNN Express South”
Arriving there for few days business trip in LA (first one), I was well surprised by this motel. 200 meters from Freeway I-10, clean, free wifi and even a Swimming Pool... All for an affordable price. The service was good and the lobby staff welcoming. 15 minutes from South downtown / 10 min from Hollywood drive outside peak time.
low quality facility.”
the price is hight if considering the quality.
overall is good
Poor service for basic necessities. ”
In conjuction of poor service, even if basic necessities are provided, business will not grow for this inn because you don't retent guests with a heartful service.
Value for the money”
Better than we expected. Pretty easy to take your car to everything you want to see/do
Do not expect too much. Not many choices for breakfast.
Unpleasant smell in bathroom.
The room smells like toilet cleaner
Not the Hotel for business, tourists and leisure.”
This is not the hotel for visitors to LA. Only overnight stay with car would be fine.
refrigerator didn't work day 1 no microwave in the room and parking was terrible people parking behi”
What stood out was them stand around the parking lot all the time watching everyone kind of creeped you out
Staff could be more spunky, and good value for the price.
horrible breakfast food. beds were hard couldn't sleep.
Low low quality
Not My First Choice”
Not a great feeling staying here. Overall it was a roof over my head, but just felt like the man at the counter was shady.
Avoid avoid avoid. Terrible hotel with dirty rooms and shower. Awful breakfast.
Phone death and Wi Fi did not work
i loved it im going to book again
