Stayed here one night in the executive 2-queen with 5 friends in early December 2006. You can tell the hotel used to be an apartment/housing building when you drive up. Area does not seem that sketchy, I felt safe enough staying here & leaving my car parked outside in the lot. Employees were very helpful & courteous; excellent service. Good location - literally just a few steps to the Kodak Theatre & mall, and the Walk of Fame. Parking is very limited, you have to park in the back in a cramped lot, if spaces are available. Rooms were very spacious, a little older & worn out, but everything looked clean. Not sure about the celebrity wallage - it kind of made the room a little creepy looking. Beds were clean & okay. Bathroom was older & dingy, but seemed clean. Internet in room was available. Dining area was convenient. Free continental breakfast included coffee, juice, croissants, bagels, and a few other items. Good for the budget traveler. Would stay here again.
Pros: Service, Parking, Location
Cons: Parking is cramped, rooms are little older
