This small, cute white motel with blue shuttered windows is in a great location right off of I-5 near the eastern entrance to Griffith Park. It is very close to downtown Los Feliz, an eclectic neighborhood known to locals as the starter neighborhood for new TV and film stars. It's just a short drive from the sights of downtown Hollywood as well. \r
My husband and I stayed in one of the 12 rooms in early December, 2007, and paid $70 per night ($90 with taxes). This seemed a little steep for the motel quality but a quick comparison with other ""mom and pop"" motels in the area revealed it was the norm for a double room. All the rooms come with queen size beds, microwaves, and refrigerators. Our room was clean and attractively decorated. There is no tub but the shower stall is roomy and comfortable. Our room appeared to have been painted (white) within the last year and the sheets were relatively new as well. The room had an a/c-heating unit along the wall but we did not need it; in fact it was so warm we left the window by the bed open for most of the night. There is some street noise, as the motel is located on busy Los Feliz Blvd., but it was minimal when we were there. \r
The office is closed from 8 p.m. until 8 a.m. and there is no continental breakfast offered. However, the motel is within walking distance from a shopping center that offers restaurant choices, and there is a gas station and convenience store right across the street. The manager of the hotel took my credit card number and left my key in the room so we could arrive after 8 p.m. He seemed very helpful and friendly on the phone.\r
Overall, I was pleased with the motel, although I would have liked to have a bathtub and breakfast for the price we paid. Still, it was a good value for the area, and I would definitely stay there again. You won't be wasting your money with this one.
