Our recent stay at the Magic Castle Hotel was superb. The hotel could not do enough for us once we arrived - the staff were very attentive and helpful. As it was a honeymoon trip we were offered a lovely card and a fantastic bottle of wine and some snacks too! On our USA west-coast tour we didn't stay very...

We spent 2 nights here in June and we loved the fact that it is different from anywhere else. We had stays in 5 star luxury during our US holiday (Fairmont in San Francisco, Signature MGM Grand in Las Vegas) and whilst the facilities might be a bit better, their service and attitudes do not even begin to come close....

We (2 adults, 2 children (15 & 12)) stayed here in July. I had read all the reviews on Trip Advisor but was still so surprised when we got there. We had flown from Perth, took about 22 hours and to be welcomed by such lovely people was fantastic. Everything you read about welcome drinks, free snacks, Wi-Fi etc. are...

Slightly tired but clean and functional rooms in a great location with truly incredible staff. Nothing is too much trouble or too cheeky. The breakfast was ok. The staff really are doing everything they can and more with the hotel, with a bit of a hotel make over they would be 100% perfect.

I cannot tell you enough how great this place is! I think it used to be an apartment block. Most rooms have balconies looking over the heated pool. If you look at the website they have pics. The staff will do anything for you. It's a small community. It is not a traditional hotel, so no room service or meals,...

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel on my way through Los Angeles to San Diego with my teenage daughter. What a fantastic way to be greeted with a refreshing sparkling beverage. Marcus at the front desk is the perfect person to ask what tour he recommends as in his second breathe he was calling to secure...

Stayed at the Magic Castle in June 2013, made to feel very welcome. Our children made the most of the complimentary snacks, yummy breakfasts and the pool. Rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. Hotel is in close proximity to Hollywood Boulevard. A nice gesture by the manager bringing out a cold soda to a travel weary Mum by the pool...

I once again just completed a stay at the Magic Castle Hotel and, as in the many times before this, it never disappoints. The attendants were outstanding, the room was super comfortable and I loved the new HD big screen TVs. It is probably the most convenient lodging in the area, right in the middle of Hollywood, within 10 minutes...

Room wasn't exactly what I booked so my daughter had to sleep on a sofa bed. Still a nice big room with cooker and massive fridge. Air con was very noisy. Décor of room was past its best. Liked the free WiFi. Pool was smaller than it looks in the photos. They could have more tables for breakfast - sometimes...

We arrived at the hotel after a terrible long flight from Sydney . Staff were very helpful with checking in and all the directions of good restaurants etc. Staff booked tours and restaurants and even tried to get my car hire place to come to me rather than me having to go to them.
