The location is not bad, but you need to take the bus or metro to get to the "close by" sights like the Walk of Fame or the Kodak Theatre. The room was rather spacious, but quite dark, gloomy, not especially clean, the floor uneven, some of the towels property of big hotel chains, and the mattress squeaking and uncomfortable...

I am not a very needy guest. This hotel was a nightmare. Do NOT stay here. I won't even go into details, but they were rude and dirty. You be better off sleeping in the street.

I phoned up the hotel to see if they had any available rooms. The man on the phone mumbled the whole time (when he actually did speak, there were many silent pauses when he ignored me - making me wonder if he was actually there as i know he hadn't hung up!!) making it hard to understand but found out...

Was fooled by the pictures in hotel.com when I made my reservations. I also should have checked the reviews in this website first before booking a room. Anyway, I made the terrible mistake of bringing my mom and 2 younger siblings who were vacationing from overseas to this ghastly and rundown motel. The room we stayed in was large, but...

WE reached the hotel at 1:00pm but the manager didnt allow us to enter before 2:00pm as that was the check in time. We had lunch nearby and returned. The manager was highly rude and...

We spent 3 nights there on August. Before we went to Hollywood Express Inn we read through many bad comments here but we though that "It should be fine if we are well prepared". We were wrong! They treated us like we are homelesses begging for a shelter! Accomodation: Ofcause, the room was dirty and smelly as you could expected...

Booked a Friday night with late check-in through Orbitz. The place is right on Hollywood Blvd and relatively cheap for LA. It looks nothing like the photo and the pool is tiny. When I arrived at 7PM I was told they had no room for me because of "plumbing problems" but they had a room at their other hotel, the...

We stayed at this dirty hotel last summer. the worst part about it besides the rock hard beds, thin as paper walls, no elevators, and filthy floors was the lack of parking spots. There were like maybe 12 parking spots in the lot, not enough even for this size of a hotel. There were never empty street parking nearby. A...

I would highly recommend that this hotel not be used. At our time of arrival we found that the management was very rude. We were told by the management that extra pillows were $5.00 extra a pillow. The rooms were very dirty and the sheets and towels were stained. The bathroom had mold around the ceiling and around the bathtub/shower....

“The area is full of Thai restaurants, Many Many Thai restaurants. Not much else unless you want to shop at a Thai Market. So if you like Thai Food, this is definitely the place to stay. Close to metro and bus transportation. Parking is tight and limited, but included at no additional cost. Careful, observed parking enforcement giving tickets for cars overlapping onto the sidewalk. Lots of homeless in the area and while walking down the street after dinner, the Urine smell was overwhelming. I think there must be better areas to stay although, I could not find one at any better rate than $120+ per night. You still get what you pay for.”
