The owners seemed friendly, but that hardly made up for nights of no sleep due to parties in the hotel and a downright dirty room. Cheap yes. Far from the action, yes. Secure, no. Never again.

My first impression was favorable, we were able to pick from three rooms, got a great rate, and then when it came time to write and pay for the room reservation, they turned us away because we have a service dog with the required ADA registrations and identifications. I was told to go back on the following Monday with the...

The Hollywood Downtowner Inn was a really good choice. I stayed there with my boyfriend for 2 nights. Its really near a METRO stop, only 2 stops to the main attractions and 3 stops to Universal Studios. The room was lovely, breakfast was great but I have to say the woman who owns the place is rude and [-] me...

First trip to LA, stayed for three days the last week of July. Great location, free parking is a huge plus. Certainly not new but very clean and well maintained. Good value overall. On Hollywood Bvld but not really walking distance to anything, car is still recommended. That being said, pretty easy to get to any tourists spots (Universal, Beverly...

This hotel is actually located in Hollywood, CA. It was a cute hotel, but the parking was very tight, as is all of Hollywood and L.A. We were in an area that was close enough to sightseeing in Hollywood, but far enough away from all the crowds. Our room appeared to be recently remodeled. It was small, but nice and...

There has been enought said about this motel to give people a good idea of what it has to offer. It, like so many old motels across this land, has been bought by a very nice family who is trying to attain the American dream thru lots of hard work. But that being said, it's still an old motel that...

I stayed at the Hollywood Downtowner Inn June 26-30, 2008 and had a good experience. I had read previous reviews and found the staff to be helpful, including changing my reservation. My room was clean and I appreciated the refrigerator and microwave. Its not the Taj-Mahal and the neighborhood is not the greatest, but its a good value for the...

We stayed at the Hollywood Downtowner for our entire week long holiday in LA. And had it not been for the location of the hotel, we would have had a difficult time getting around. No one walks in LA. Even the Sunset Strip people drive. The hotel was definatly dated, and our room had a funky stale/damp smell to it,...

We'd gone to LA to see some friends so we booked something cheap and basic but centrally located. Everyone says you need a car in LA but we found it fine without. The motel is just a block from the Hollywood/Western metro (the LA version of the Underground) and for a reasonable price you can buy an all day pass....

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
