Reviewed 20 August 2016

Extremely disappointed . I used to book this hotel some years ago but it looks like owner changed and for the worse.
Even though I was early to check in (11am) , I was told to come back at 3pm and discovered that I was then put in a room ...across the street in another location, while the only interest of this hotel is its relaxed atmosphere around the pool . Room was so dirty, towels had some big holes in them , no hot water, Air Conditioning so noisy you cannot even hear the TV and on top of it very poor safety as room is just on the street and there is no safe closed door. Staff did not try to help, and seem to be used to client complaints as they immediately proposed to refund ...Breakfast is basic , nothing in comparison to the very nice breakfast a few years ago . Very disappointing , I left after 2 nights and asked for refund of the remaining nights . So disappointing ! And also forgot to mention that wifi/pool is at extra cost ! ...

Room Tip: If you still decide to go to this hotel , absolutely mention to have a room in the main location aro...

Location was good, close to restaurants and bars. Thought it was a bit expensive considering what you get but you pay for the location and everything around the West Hollywood area is expensive. Hotel could be a bit cleaner and better looked after. Breakfast was good and staff were helpful. For a one night stay it was ok.

Looking for a reasonable place to say in West Hollywood as our flight out of LAX was delayed. Such a great spot, close to all of the bars and restaurants in Boys Town. Very friendly reservation/check in and for the price, it was a perfect hotel. I know that this place will be remodeled by The Sunset Tower Group and will be amazing in a few years but for now, enjoy the vintage feel.

My partner and I were excited for a quick overnight in LA, hanging out at the pool and relaxing in a great neighborhood, so the San Vicente Bungalows seemed like the perfect spot. And the location is, in fact, fantastic...but that's where the excitement ends.

There is a striking contrast between some of the property's nicer features (Malin & Goetz amenities in the bath, for example) and the rest...a dirty room, burn stains on the carpeting, food and other garbage under a filthy chair cushion, mold around the showers, a funky smell in the room and two thin, cheap pillows.

The pool area has potential but needs to be cleaned up. And I say this as a cigarette smoker myself but allowing guests (whose own pool chairs might only be 10 feet from your own) to smoke at the pool killed the ambiance for us.

In the final analysis, I just can't imagine being a property owner who's proud to welcome guests to this place...which is the only reason I feel comfortable saying such negative stuff here. Trust the negative reviews. The place is a mess.
