2/10 Poor

We booked thru hotels.com as it was advertised as a nice hotel with a 7+ out of 10 rating. Upon arrival, the surrounding area did not give a safe inviting feel, there were transients all over, blatant drug use in the parking lot, and the grounds were very dirty. Being we multiple were 2 moms plus grandma and 6 kids, we left and found other accommodations in a safer and cleaner location. I would struggle to give this a 1 star rating. Upon further investigation with trip advisor, other travelers noted similar issues, bed bugs, and damage to their vehicles parked in the parking lot over night. So far hotels.com has not refunded the charges on our credit card, even though this was clearly false advertising on Hollywood Inn’s part. They are clearly not as clean and highly rated as they claim. We are still working to get reimbursed for this at this time.

Looked dirty, not in a good neighborhood. They didn't made the bed or anything for 2nd night. Had to ask for towels in the lobby. Overall good for one night only. Had a good parking space, wifi and a fridge but not a microwave.

Thumbs down
I definitely would not stay there again. The area looked a bit sketchy and not being from LA was a bit uncomfortable Things that were supposed to be included such as breakfast WAS NOT The ice and drink machine in the courtyard was not working the entire time and when I went to the office, they had none either. Found cockroach running around in room AND SO NO NOT FOR ME

This hotel is not a four star stay away.
Special view? 😂 never again. And I won’t ever use hotels.com. Place is dirty doesn’t feel safe. Half a star rating.

8/10 Very good

Nice/ good enough but.... the parking
Everything is nice, it's clean enough, beds comfy enough i didn't find any problems in room except that they don't have microwave. But i do have to complain about how NARROW the parking is. My car and everyone elses were so close to each other, it was hard to get in/out. I'm pretty sure my car was hit/dinged by whoever was beside me. Plus i don't think they do complimentary breakfasts?

Not my favorite hotel
I was working at the LA Historical Park and this hotel is the only available in the area that’s not too far from my work. Otherwise I would choose a different option because the parking in this hotel is very hectic. Even street parking was so crazy and unsafe too. Price per night is not that low either. So one night stay is ok, but anything longer I would choose a different hotel.
