I had a great stay here. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
It was in my budget which wasn't great, the location was pretty good.
Considering my agenda took in everything from Culver city to Korea town. in a city this big nowhere is near to everything.
The room was spacious, clean, cool and quiet, just the sounds of chirping sparrows.
Which in the madness of LA was very copacetic.
The room had free wifi, which worked easily and straight away, air conditioning, fans, a kitchen, bathroom and sort of study area. A clean and functional just a little basic.
Shower was good with plenty of hot and cold whenever I wanted it. This hotel is an individual, a beautiful old movie star of a place, slightly faded in places, perhaps a little past its glory days but with a great history, (I think it featured in Chaplin era movies) and still full of heart. I felt safe and welcome throughout.
It has an off beat shabby chic charm. Don't expect a bland chain experience, don't expect it to be something it isn't, but if you like to stay somewhere with a bit of personality and an arty, bohemian charm right between Downtown and West Hollywood on a bit of a budget then this place is for you.
I'd go back and stay again if I go to LA.

Hollywood Forever was right around the corner and had a larger then large day of the dead party, I booked just for the price and one night stay... Loved my stay here Its a locked entry but it's historical and key admission... Note they give you the key,,, and the lady and people give you a tour upon arrival, if you ask, and the place gives you a perspective of Hollywood. And note the early Hollywood Stars... The rooms where nice clean, decent they have a little continental breakfast suite... with simple nice breakfast suites.

It was very easy to go to Hollywood afterwards and I also was able to enjoy all of the special venues around.

I stayed in the Jean harlow suite... it was nice will post photos this hotel is more like a hotel/apt with everything for your stay like you where in your own suite in the city

Room Tip: Jean Harlow Suite has a super queen size bed, the cool simple décor, ground floor photos i'm upl...

No Parking....so ever two hours you have to move your car and find another 2 hour slot. This place is not a HOTEL or even a HOSTEL. It is a very strange, run down, dirty set of one bed flats with STRANGE people deciding in them. It is close to nothing and really is not worth using.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

We walk in to checked this hotel. I saw some grocery bags outside the room pack with dirty clothing from homeless individual that stays in this hotel. The hotel is messy with no security with
scary individual wondering around the room. I left the hotel with my family and refused to stay in this hotel. This hotel is not safe do not stay in this hotel. Stay away from this hotel. They need to be investigated by the police.

Room Tip: Do not stay in this hotel.
