"Not much to like"

User 04/04/2021

While some aspects of the rooms appear to have been renovated within the past 5 years, the overall feel is rundown. The floors were dirty, and other guests were loud throughout the night. The premises are open to the street and don't feel secure. We also had a roomful of guests below us smoking weed. We didn't enjoy our stay, and the hotel doesn't deserve 3 stars.

"Hollywood Stars filled the lobby"

starzgodus, Etna, California 14/03/2021

Owner's collection of old and new stars photographs and autographs filled the walls of the room and halls. Rooms are clean and large. Staff is friendly and caring. I really enjoyed my stay. I will be back!

"Dirty hotel."

User 06/02/2021

I had a reservation for two nights. They put me in a room that was dirty. The entire floor smelled like cigarettes and the carpets were so gross. I ended up not staying at the hotel. They offered me another room , but the entire place was dirty. I refused to stay and ended up paying for a full night. If you care about your room being clean and are concerned about covid protocols. This is not the hotel for you.

"Family get-away to see Hollywood"

jessicat304, Sacramento, California 01/12/2020

Found this hotel in the Moon travel guide. Traveled to the area with my family to see the outdoor sights in the area. Easy parking was a great surprise. Room was comfortable for the four of us. First room smelled of smoke, but we were given another room immediately. Enjoyed the Hollywood memorabilia in the room and hallways - helped set the tone for our touristy trip. Hotel was quiet and we all got a great night's sleep. Bathroom was huge and the mini-kitchen was also a pleasant surprise! Location was good as the next morning, we were able to leave the car at the hotel, and walk over to the Walk of Fame and the theaters for sight-seeing. Staff was very friendly. Drove up to Griffith Observatory twice because it was so close. Had a great dinner a few blocks east at suggestion of front desk which was a highlight of the trip too.

"Great location but the haunted hollywood vibe is intense"

IpanemaGuys, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 25/11/2020

Cannot beat the location or the price and yes, you do get what you pay for. Covid has cancelled so much that I can't blame the folks working there, they're lucky to have a job these days. The walls are covered in photos of classic Hollywood in elaborate frames but the carpet's best days were probably while Lana Turner was making films. I'm not sure that Covid is a good excuse for no room service but fresh towels are available at the front desk upon request. New carpet and updated furniture would transform this into a charming Hollywood hotel. The vibe now is more film noir- I didn't see any dead hookers OD'd in the room but wouldn't have been surprised to find one.

"Great staff and lodging"

timothyburleigh, Pflugerville, Texas 20/11/2020

Staff were awesome and friendly. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip. Very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and the buildings history. Owned by the same family since 1929. Best California hotel experience I have had


User 23/10/2020

The hotel looks somewhat like the pictures. It's clean and close to Hollywood which is all I wanted. The neighborhood is horrible. There were no amenities even though a resort fee is charged. Parking is free but there's hardly any available. It's difficult to reach the front desk. I had no idea it was a pet friendly hotel. I only stayed one night but I will probably not stay again. It was just ok.

"GR8 location & Room"

Bchgrl9, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California 27/08/2020

We were upgraded to mini suite at the end of the 4th floor of original building. It was well equipped with huge bath/shower/vanity area, a separate fridge, coffee maker & wet sink. An easy walk to Gelson's and a few take-out food places. Free parking in hotel lot was safe and easy. A few blocks from Hollywood Blvd & seeing the stars. (nore: it took 3 hrs to walk them all (about 2 mi) and was Very hot when we ended @ noon in Aug.


wrenchrod86, Parma, Michigan 12/08/2020

At first glance it looked like an interesting place with cool decor even though it was a little dated. Price was a little high but considering the location we thought it was still reasonable. What did it for us however was finding a cockroach in our room. We immediately packed up and left ... we were so disgusted with the room and the city of la/wall of fame as a whole that we not only immediately left the hotel but we left California entirely . I'd recommend staying at a different hotel if you must be visit but I highly recommend not going to the city at all!. Disgusting disgrace to all of CA.

"Small rooms, disappointing"

AmazingGracie17, Sydney, Australia 20/03/2020

Booked this hotel based on location,reviews and price. On arrival we were not impressed with the "welcome" we received - nowhere near as friendly as what we we have experienced elsewhere in the USA. The lift is small and door narrow so getting in with luggage is tricky. Our room was very noisy - facing Franlin Ave. Aircon in the room was ridiculously noisy, and TV was constantly "freezing" when we called for assistance - told they couldn't do anything to fix it. Room with 2 queen beds is small so even though they accept 3 people in the room - once bags are in there is no room. Shower is spacious but you have to get wet to turn the taps on! Minibar downstairs is expensive - 3 drinks and a tiny cheese platter (only 1 type of "nothing special" cheese) cost about $90 USD. Location was close to Hollywood Boulevard and the Metro station. We had a late flight and initially they didn't want to store our luggage so we had to argue about it. Retro movie decor was interesting. Would not stay here again.

Good afternoon, I'm really sorry to hear about your experience. During this time its more difficult to provide the superior service that we would like our guests to receive . In the months to come I hope we are able to exceed guests expectations.

"Retro Cool Hotel"

Eileen Z, Victoria BC Canada 08/03/2020

The hotel was decorated Retro Hollywood. Conveniently located. Comfortable and clean. Family restaurant attached open till late at night. Really nice pool! Mini Bar near the lobby had awesome cocktails. Strongly recommend.

"Ants and used towels"

User 02/03/2020

I wish this was a better experience it was horrible. There were ants in the room everywhere and also used dirty towels left for us. Carpet felt so dirty and sticky. I dont recommend staying here unless you dont mind all what I just said.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
I'm really sorry to hear about your poor experience. We will have a full renovation in months to come.

"Just about in the thick of it!"

SydneyPaul, Sydney, Australia 19/02/2020

We booked a four night stay at the Hollywood Plus in part because of a Sandra Bernhard skit where she made reference to the "last cappuccino before the 101 on Vine". They may not make "sloppy toms", but they do make their guests welcome and look after them. From the movie star photos that cover the walls in Reception, to the Hollywood memorabilia that lines the hall walls, and the pictures of stars past and present that adorned our room, this family owned business is well worth enjoying. I want to acknowledge the help of the staff when I needed some medical help. They gave me all the necessary details to get to the Selma Street Clinic. For anyone travelling a long way from home, the kindness of strangers is essential. The room was big, and the bathroom was huge! We have every intention of coming back.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Really great to hear of your experience at the Best Western Plus Hollywood hills ( Last Cappuccino before the 101} I'll have to look up the Sandra Bernhard skit....The hotel and café have lots of Hollywood personnel walking in and out of the lobby. It always nice to hear about great feedback from our guest pertaining to our staff at the hotel.

"Fun trip to Los Angeles"

User 15/02/2020

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills during our family trip to LA and really like this hotel. The service is great. The rooms are spacious and equipped with everything we need for a convenient stay. The hotel is clean and in walking distance to the greatest donuts ever. It's conveniently located to many spots in Hollywood and very reasonably priced. The bar in the hotel called Minibar is small but trendy. The bartender makes fantastic cocktails!! We look forward to staying here again in the future!

So nice to hear you had a excellent stay with the Best Western plus Hollywood Hills hotel. Come join us again for a drink or two.

"Disappointing Average Parking Fee"

Brenda G, San Ramon, California 06/02/2020

The hotel is in a great area and was close to a job I had in the morning. It's an older hotel with alot of history displayed everywhere. There was some confusion in regards to parking as there is a parking garage which was valet and a parking fee of $25/per night. The lobby entrance is by garage and alley way where smokers were gathering. All in all the staff was pleasant to chat with, room was clean, location was spot I would consider staying there again.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
We will be conducting a full renovation of the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel in the up coming months. Give us a try on your next visit to Hollywood.

"Great Location"


Older property nicely remodeled. Puts you blocks from all the Hollywood action. Very clean, room was well equipped with pillows, blankets, towels and toiletries. Decor is heavy on the Hollywood nostalgia which is kinda fun. Our room included a fridge and microwave in a mini kitchenette area. Not sure that set up is in every room. But a nice touch as we had lunch leftovers. Valet parking is an extra charge and is required but parkers were friendly and fast. If you are driving this hotel is located across from a gas station so easy to refill. Hotel has a restaurant - we were unable to try as it was not open when we needed it -and bar which we did not go to. There is a smallish pool surrounded by rooms. We experienced a some noise from guests staying above us but it stopped at a reasonable time so we could sleep. Front desk staff upon check in and check out were very unfriendly which was too bad as otherwise the hotel is a solid property.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for staying at the Best Western Hollywood Hills Hotel: We will be doing an extensive renovation in 2020. Most of the rooms will all have a Hollywood theme to them. Give us a try!

"Hotel was very nice and fancy scenery."

User 20/01/2020

It has all the famous pictures hanging from wall to wall give you a great view of the history back then. I love the reflective mirrors being able to see your surroundings and your self was safety. The hotel has valet parking which is very nice.Also has 24 hour security as well.

Hope you had a great time in Hollywood! Next time try the 101 Coffee shop and the Mini Bar

"It's just okay"

Road169497, Los Angeles, California 15/01/2020

This is a less a than desirable and not within walking distance to anything of interest including restaurant or convenience stores. But I found the hotel quite clean and in order except that having reserved an economy room was provide a room tucked in back tgat WREAKED of chemical and a blaring tv next room over. I was quickly moved (lets me know they tried to pawn it off on me) and stuck in another room that was clean but tge furnishings were beat to a pulp and I wouldnt be surprised if they were bought at a yard sale. The TV remote required service and lighting was sparse. The key card required reprogramming too. A light was burned out in bathroom. Now, i had already been moved to a different room so the added need to have items fixed was exasperating although handled quickly by staff. A very clean pkace but not for economy guests. Also, parking is $25 per night and there is a big covered parking garage but because i was in the “cheap seats” i was relegated to the far end of an outside parking lot next to public sidewalk. Onky after did i realize i could have been parked on street just as safely except there is no parking available with in blocks. I was not offered an option of street parking either.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Most of all of the hotels in Hollywood charge for parking: I know that unfortunately Hollywood is not for everyone, and often is not what you see on TV. Our hotel is in the Hollywood Hills area, lots of restaurants within half mile of the hotel. The Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills has a cool Coffee shop called the 101 Coffee shop and a Mini bar in the lobby.....Give us another try!

"Great Hotel Room for Handicap"

Jeana B, San Tan Valley, United States 15/01/2020

We love the double bed in the handicap room. There was sufficient room to move around including in the kitchen area. The bathroom was designed with details in mind for a handicap person. The hotel decor was GREAT. The attention to detail for the photos and frames was a PLUS. Only down side NO BREAKFAST - NO FREE BREAKFAST - PARKING $30 A DAY - Handicap free. Sites nearby: EVERYTHING!!! Travel up and down the Famous roads (when no traffic) 10 am to 1 p.m.

"Fun Hollywood Hotel"

User 05/01/2020

This hotel was extremely clean, neat and a great location to the Walk of Fame & Pantages Theater. Great little diner downstairs and super comfy beds. Great “old Hollywood” decor and memorabilia. Will recommend to friends!

"Worst Best Western Stay ever"

756maryannem, Portland, Oregon 22/12/2019

I frequently stay at Best Western and this was horrible. The window in the bathroom was broken and wouldn't close. The water temp was either scolding or freezing. I was overcharged each day for parking.

"Loved the Hollywood Theme"

TonyRGUK, Reading UK 21/12/2019

Enjoyed staying here very much, film memorabilia everywhere including in our room which was interesting to look at, our room was in the old building it was a good size with a large bathroom, it was clean, quiet & comfortable Hotel is within walking distance of Walk of Fame which is not the nicest of areas but I guess you have to see it, we had a couple of days at Universal Studios which was literally a few minutes away on the freeway. If you walk up the residential street the hotel is on you can see the Hollywood sign, it's also a couple of blocks from the iconic Capitol Records building The coffee shop/diner within the hotel did a great breakfast, there is a bar which we didn't go to and a pool The only parking at the hotel is valet parking which is $25 a night, I did notice that parking was free on the residential streets around the hotel so I guess you could do that as an alternative. Felt quite safe around the hotel, LA has a massive homelessness problem which is sad to see so you will see some upsetting sights

"fun and convieneint place to stay"

WestJordanJim, west jordan 16/12/2019

This hotel is a great destination as it is very close to many attractions like the Walk of Fame, Pantages , Universal studios ect. The hotel is wall to wall of photographs of famous movie stars, both past and present. The rooms each has a theme. Even the elevator has life size pictures of movie stars. It is a movie star fan's delight. The pool is beautiful and deep. The fitness center is small but has a variety of machines. Fun place to stay. It can be somewhat noisy but it can't be helped as cars are always honking. The beds are fabulous.

"Hollywood Hills trip"

cacheyney1163, Sparks, Nevada 14/12/2019

Great service all around. Rooms were well decorated and I loved all the memorbilia.Restaurant had a good variety and the food was delicious.Location was right in the middle of Hollywood and easy walking distance to attractions.

"Business Upgrade!"

User 11/12/2019

Easy access to freeway, i needed to get to the Valley and DTLA, the hotel was decorated with a great big tree and overall i say it was a great stay - lobby bar, coffee shop were great experience. Great food. Check in was easy, got upgraded since i needed a desk and a quiet work space and the hotel was not fully booked.

"Great for Universal Studios stay"

artbazil, Moscow, Russia 09/12/2019

Spacious bathroom with two sinks and mirror walls make you feel in palace. Room has all you need - iron, fridge, microwave, TV, luggage stands, hair dryer and etc. Close to LA subway (great place to stay for Universal Studios - just 15 minutes and you're there). Diner on the first floor is great as well (101 coffee shop) - best place to have a breakfast or late dinner. Staff was friendly and very helpful. A little bit noisy, when room windows facing Franklin Ave.

"Location! Staff!"

ChristineInWI, Milton, Wisconsin 09/12/2019

Came here for a 3 night stay. I needed to have a great location as events that week were spread all over the area. This location was perfect (although going up that steep hill on Vine to turn on Franklin was nerve wracking). It was very easy to figure out how to get places from here. The valet parking was fast and reasonably priced. As much as I really wanted to try to eat at different famed California places, I did end up eating at the 101 Diner on site and it was pretty good. Crazy large portions. I highly recommend the apple crisp. Everyone that works at the hotel were incredibly kind and helpful. The room was on the 4th floor (404) and very large - especially the bathroom - pretty sure I could do a cartwheel in there if I knew how to do one.

"Hollywood Hotel Stay"

johansenmichelle, Calgary, Canada 09/12/2019

Our stay was overall good. Hotel is close to Walk of Fame and Universal. Pool was disappointing, cold! My kids could not use it once. Bathroom maintenance needed, should have been noted before room was assigned to us. Plugged sinks and barely any water in shower. Comfortable beds. Great decor.

"Excellent value in the heart of Hollywood"

User 09/12/2019

From the moment I walked into the lobby, every part of my stay here was fantastic. Quick, easy check-in, warm and welcoming front desk staff ready to help with anything. Room was spacious, clean, modern, remarkably quiet for the location on busy Franklin Street. The beds were super comfortable, slept like a baby. I've stayed at several other hotels in the area and the BW Hollywood Hills is by far the best hotel in this price range in this part of town. With the restaurant and bar onsite, this hotel has everything you need for a fun stay in Hollywood.

"Close to the Pantages, but far from classy"

davep4ventura, Ventura, California 25/11/2019

Let me begin with the one saving grace of this property: David, Max, and Fred. Were it not for their engaging and fun personalities, along with their helpful, friendly guidance with Hollywood's 'do's and don'ts', this review would have earned two stars. The hotel/motor inn (take your pick) was, from appearance, an apartment building from yesteryear that was converted into a motor inn and given a fresh coat of paint, albeit a 'funky' one at that. Archival photos and prints of Hollywood stars, both film and vocal, don't save the small, listless rooms and rather oddly-colored buildings from seeming like a Motel 6 on steroids. Also, the neighborhood is no fault of the property's, but it didn't seem to matter which street I traversed towards Hollywood Boulevard, Gower or Argyle, I held onto my wallet as tightly as possible. Having said that, words cannot describe how delightful David, Max, and and Fred were when we checked in, but unfortunately, those very cool guys can't make the bed or the room any more comfortable.

"Good Hollywood location"

790naomic, Lincoln City, Oregon 23/11/2019

My family stayed here for two nights. This is an older hotel and the room was small but clean. The pool area was also nice and clean. The decor was very fun, lots of old pics of Hollywood stars. We are at the restaurant that is attached, breakfast was very good. There is only valet available for parking. We were about 10 min from universal studios.

"Great Value for LA"

eriksL2507UW, New Rochelle, United States 22/11/2019

I have stayed in this hotel many times. There is a huge difference between staying in the main building and the pool area. The rooms are better and much quieter in the main building. The rooms by the pool are noisy and are right next to Highway 101. It's a cool hotel--lounge is great and the 60s-themed diner is wonderful, though a bit pricey.


sruelas2019, Long Beach, California 21/11/2019

Wonderful, fun, vintage Hollywood hotel. Loved the decor and staff was very helpful and kind. Staff went out of their way to help my older parents and asked about my mom during our stay as she was having surgery in a nearby hospital.

"Convenient Location, Comfortable Room, Excellent Diner"

Ray P, El Cerrito, California 11/11/2019

Flew down for a 2-night stay to catch a concert at the Hollywood Palladium and we could not have picked a better place. Nice, comfortable room with excellent staff. The 101 Diner is absolutely brilliant - we ate there several times. Easy walking distance to everything. If you fly into Hollywood Burbank Airport, catch the 222 bus into Hollywood - it will drop you off only a couple of blocks from the hotel for $1.75 per person. Convenient all around!

"Ideal hotel for a short stay"

User 08/11/2019

Stayed here in July 2019 as part group (2 couples). hotel was nice, rooms were very spacious which was nice for us. The hollywood memorabilia in the halls and lobby are nice touch for movie fans. There is a restaurant on site which was handy for breakfast in the morning and provided large portions. The hotel is within walking distance from Hollywood Blvd. We had on site parking for our car which was handy. Found it quite a good location easy to get to and from places. Staff were friendly and provided us with some recommendations of things to do. My only negative comment was that there was a smell of urine in the lobby and well the place was immaculately clean the smell was there, now there was bathrooms close by which could explain it but I wouldnt let stop you from staying here. Our friends had a slight view of the hollywood sign which was nice.

"nice stay"

LeoandMagda, Ham Belgium 07/11/2019

For us this hotel was easy to find. they have a valet parking and after check inn the man from the reception helped us to bring our luggage to our room. We had a room on the backside off the hotel and this was very quiet. Waauw, what a big room we never expected this in LA, there was also a kitchen. They have a restaurant for breakfast, lunch and diner. Because there no restaurants close to the hotel we took our diner here. I had a steak and my wife the salmon both where super. In the morning we had a breakfast like in the old days with toast, eggs, hash browns, bacon etc. From our 3 weeks vacation this hotel was our biggest surprise

"Comfort at an affordable price"

91debdeb, Brisbane, Australia 06/11/2019

We stayed here for a total of 5 nights. Arrived early in the morning and were able to store our luggage until check in. Did a bit of sightseeing and returned to find we could book in early which was awesome as so tired. Great location, Hollywood walk of fame 8 mins walk away, short Uber rides to Universal Studio and Warner Bros. I found the staff really helpful and friendly. They have a restuarant on site which is ok. There was a microwaive in the room which was very convenient. Beautiful photos of stars all through the Hotel. The bed was super comfy, however, my husband found the pillows a bit soft. I would recommend staying at this hotel.


User 29/10/2019

This is the best room I have had compare to any other hotel. this is the only hotel has two sink in the bathroom, it has a great large seating room. great window. it has many interesting and attractive movies stars.

"Great stay"

Melview, ireland 26/10/2019

We stayed at this hotel for three nights excellent location with great views of the Hollywood sign only 20 min walk to the walk of fame. Room was very comfortable excellent walk in shower, beds were very comfortable and a great air con unit. The gentleman were very helpful on reception giving us restaurant recommendations and tour trip. Hotel is in walking distance of a couple of restaurants tried the Thai pepper it was excellent. On site cafe which serves excellent breakfast and evening food very reasonable priced. Great hotel in good location we enjoy our stay.

"Amazing Customer Service"

User 22/10/2019

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during our honeymoon which was part of a road trip we were on. The reception and valet parking staff were so friendly and accommodating to us whilst we stayed there. They also went the extra mile allowing us to park at the hotel free of charge whilst we were The Who gig at the Hollywood Bowl and like a numpty I left two jackets in the wardrobe. I contacted the hotel and they are keeping them until a friend can pick them up. Rooms were fine, nice sized beds and kept spotless by the maid. Nice swimming pool that we did not have time to use. The foyer has some great Hollywood star memorabilia. Thanks all

"Excellent hotel"

Jerry L, Petaluma, United States 14/10/2019

Conveniently location near tourist areas and restaurants. Very clean, courteous staff, and a restaurant next to it with great food. Stayed three nights and enjoyed the experience in the surrounding area.

"A perfect stay"

User 13/10/2019

Clean, modern, well organized, staff so nice and helpfull, valet parking so helpfull. The perfect hotel near Hollywood Boulevard, 101 highway for easy travel. Swmming pool a bit small and inside building not a plus but ok. realyl worth to choose the BW Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel

"Good Hotel"

User 12/10/2019

Hotel was clean and well kept. There's only valet parking that cost $25 per day. It's close to many tourist attractions, such as sunset boulevard and universal studios. All in all, enjoyed our stay. It's a cheaper, but still nice hotel for the Hollywood area.

"Great location, good value for money"

llyriktours, Dusseldorf, Germany 12/10/2019

Really great location. Just a minutes walk from the famous walk of fame and the big theaters (dolby and man's chinese). Nice rooms with really big bathroom, everything clean and comfortable. TV is quite big with lots of channels (HBO, Amazon prime and Netflix). Nice restaurant right under the hotel. Parking is affordable (25$ valet parking per night). Good wifi. The elevator is quite old and gives you the feeling of getting stuck everytime you use it

"Comfy bed"

KathyJ3, Townsville, Australia 05/10/2019

Stayed on 2 seperate occasions and rooms were clean and the bed soooo comfy. The hotel is old and the diner next door serves great food. A short walk to Hollywood Blvd and nearby restaurants. Don't wait long for an Uber.

"Hany Location"

MataoSR, Nelson, New Zealand 02/10/2019

Stayed for business. Quirky hotel with plenty of Hollywood memorabilia. Wasn't the quietest hotel I've stayed in but not the noisiest either. Cafe attached was a bit basic for my tastes and the wine list was so so. Friendly staff, but they were quite stretched for time so were fairly "prompt" Bathroom was a bit dated and I'd say the whole place will need a full refurbishment before long.

PUDSEYCAT, Swadlincote, United Kingdom 28/09/2019

Stayed here for two nights at the end of our Route 66 trip, Kieth on front desk very friendly and very helpful. We had a great room (401) which was a corner room with one window facing the Hollywood sign. A nice comfortable room,very spacious and with a small “kitchen” area with a sink,coffee maker,fridge and microwave. Would have been nice to have a room safe. $25 a night to park but I suppose this is Hollywood. On the whole a really nice stay.

"Great Stay"

lawmantravel, Dublin, Ireland 21/09/2019

The staff was very nice and attentive to our needs. Big shout out to Keith and the reception staff for all of their help. Checkin was amazing and they gave us so much information on things to do and where to go. The pool was lovely and plenty of space to do laps. The room was big and there was a microwave and kitchenette. There was two armchairs snd a table. The beds were big and spacious. The windows had blackout blinds. The bathroom was big. The Shower was nice and clean. There are two sinks to wash. The closet is also in bathroom never stayed in a hotel that has this. The room has a hairdryer. Safety deposit boxes are at reception if you need one. The bar is small like its name 'The Mini Bar' its nice and if want a seat my advice is to get down early it opens at 5pm. The Restaurant is in a diner connected to the hotel its a little pricy but nice.The coffee is so good as well as their pancakes well recomended. Elevator was slow and there was only one elevator serving the block. Coffee in the room was bland and tasteless. These are minor. All in all it was a lovely stay that exceeded our expectations and will definitly return in the future.

"Good location, needs update."

EscapingHeat, Houston, Texas 19/09/2019

We picked this hotel because of its closeness to our destination. It is well located if you want to walk around the Hollywood streets. For Hollywood, I guess it's reasonably priced. It is a very basic hotel. Nothing inviting about the pool - go to the Roosevelt for that! It has a nice little bar and a very nice dinner that serves very good food, but it really is a dinner, fun to go. Nothing fancy. The rooms badly need updating. It looks like they did a quick one a while back, puttingt in new TVs, counter tops and tile floors, but very minor. Window air. Interesting decor with all the pictures of Hollywood actors, etc. There were no in room safes. The hotel is located on a busy street. We were on the second floor main building, street side. Very nosy. We moved to forth floor main building and it was very quiet even though we were on the street side. There is a second building in the back. You have to drag your bags and it's like an old 3 story motel. Not appealing at all. In summary, stay here if you want to save a hundred or so a night, it is a clean room. Otherwise, no.

Hey we took your advice and will be doing a full renovation due to your trip advisor review! See it does pay off writing a review! The entire hotel will have a renovation, and safes in the room!

"Good location but some problems"

Dicky1972, Copenhagen, Denmark 14/09/2019

Upon arriving at the hotel the two gentleman on reception were very helpful and checked us in early, helped us book an LA Tour and gave us plenty of good advice. However, the room had a couple of issues. Firstly the WiFi didn't work in the room and we needed it for booking tickets to Universal, Disneyland etc and also the shower was very poor. We reported both issues on the first day but by the time we left neither issue had been addressed. There is a restaurant which is like an old school diner which is quite good and we had breakfast there which was nice. There's also a bar but we didn't use that. Location is a few minutes walk from Hollywood Blvd and so Universal and Warner Brothers are very near however Disneyland was around an hour but probably a lot more in high season.

"Pleasant Experience!"

User 09/09/2019

My family and I recently stayed at this property this May. It was a very pleasant stay! The location was the property was convenient to everything. But, there was a lot of homeless down the street so I wouldn't walk alone. The hotel is only a couple minutes from Hollywood Star Walk. It was nice to walk down there and get breakfast in the mornings. When checking in they let us pick what building we would prefer to stay in, the main or the one located near the pool. We choose the main and the room was wonderful. The bathroom was enormous. The set up was wonderful! I appreciated that they put a good-sized mini-fridge and microwave in the room. It was very useful during our stay. The hallways were decorated with movie stars and old-time Hollywood photos. It was extremely interesting to look at. The pool was small, but it was nice on a hot day. Just got to be there before the sun gets blocked by the buildings. Everything looked super clean and old-Hollywood style! The only complaint I have is the parking situation. There was only valet on the property. The valet man was super nice! We love him! Just wished we were able to park ourselves more often. But, overall it was a wonderful stay, the rooms were clean, and everything couldn't have gone better.

"At the Corner of Hollywood & the 101"

Literally off the 101 on Franklin. About a mile from Universal Studios & Burbank, walking distance to Graumann's, 5 min drive to Griffith Park and walking distance to Paramount Pictures. East Hollywood. one of the best coffeeshops in town & a hip cool tiny bar called "minibar". Movie memorablia through out hotel...and the rooms. Pretty incredible collection

Great place to stay Rooms are big Bed very comfortable Hotel staff very helpful friendly couldn't fault this place The restaurant attracted has a good menu and plenty drink choices You can spend hrs just looking at all the photos on the walls Only 20 minutes walk to the stars and all the action

"Good location"

Explorer617169, Melbourne, Australia 21/08/2019

Our room was clean, nice, spacious and comfortable. It's good value for this area, great location. The only issue was the lobby floor stinks! Smells like feces. Revolting, despite how clean it is, the smell was overwhelming. Our room smelt fine though.

This is our favorite place to stay while in the Hollywood/LA area. We appreciate the staff and its a fun property for sure. Full of history and has a great "city" feeling. Will book here when we return to this area for sure.

"Not what we ordered"

Tara D, New York 02/07/2019

Overall the hotel is adequate. We did not get the room be booked which was a suite with couches, which we had stayed in before. That room was very nice and we had not problems. The pool is nice, beds fine. Half of the hotel is old style motel with doors to outside so when it rains you get wet. The room leaked when it rained and their answer to that was to just bring up towel to soak up water. The staff is not very helpful overall. One good thing is that they have parking at the hotel for a extra charge. Would stay in again. .

"Great place to stay for Universal"

User 29/06/2019

Very charming. Excellent comfort of beds and pillows. Pillows were possibly the most comfortable ever in a hotel, made for the best sleep. Huge bathroom with 2 sinks, could use an exhaust fan. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location for exploring Hollywood and quick Uber ride to Universal Studios.

"Loved this hotel!!"

ajmh9, Dublin, Ireland 21/06/2019

Fantastic hotel !! Its so retro!! Amazing rooms with the most comfortable beds and the best shower ever!!!! And you have the amazing cafe 101 on your door step literally!! Would recommend to anyone for great location comfort and value!! Big thanks to the fantastic staff who made our stay fantastic! Stayed in alot of hotels on our trip but yours was definitely the best!!

"3 days in LA"

G4050CEsarahf, Dusseldorf, Germany 19/06/2019

Clean hotel with good comfort. Room rather big. Friendly staff. AC and fridge in room. Very close to Hollywood walk of Fame. However very noisy. Think about bringing ear plug if you plan staying there.

"Great Location for the Pantages and fine dining"

DayTrip24100331169, Laguna Niguel, California 17/06/2019

The room was fun with great Hollywood memorabilia, although street noise was pretty loud. We loved being able to walk to The Pantages for the performance we came to see as well a choice of really nice restaurants. Having a Coffee Shop as part of the building was a real plus.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Really good to hear you could make it to the Theater for the show. We are just a 7 min walk to the Hollywood walk of fame and many of the other attractions are within minutes also. Universal Studios is a 5 min car ride. Come and visit us in 2020 when our renovation is complete.

Room was clean,but very small for 3 people with ports Beds were comfortable, A beautiful bathroom with so much room. Hotel cafe was great. Found staff very lazy. Found it central to places we went using Ubers with lots of room to drive into

"Better than expected"

Brannan22, Burbage, United Kingdom 03/06/2019

We were quite worried about staying here after reading the recent reviews but I have to say we did not encounter any issues we were greeted on arrival by David who was very polite and helpful, we had an issue with no hot water but he advised us of this and assured us it would be fixed the next morning and offered us breakfast tokens to compensate, sure enough the next day our hot water was back on and the shower was delightful with a double headed shower bigger enough to fit a family in! The room was nice and the bed very comfy, we were right next to the pool but we had no issues with noise, the cafe/diner that is part of the hotel is very nice, my only gripe would be that I didn't like the bar, it was dark and full of young drunk people also the staff were not very pleasant but it didn't spoil our stay, location was also good.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for the very helpful review! I'm really sorry about the hot water issue, but sounds like David did a great job overcoming the issue. We will be doing a full renovation of the hotel in 2019-2020..Come back and see the improvements!

"Pleasant Stay"

165mareeg, Sydney, Australia 12/05/2019

Our family of 4, 3 adults and 1 teenager, stayed in a double Queen room for 3 nights. I was a little hesitant about the hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. However, it was clean, the staff friendly and helpful and in a fairly good location. Yes, it was a bit noisy but didn't stop us from sleeping. The room was a little small for 4 people, with all of our luggage. I was expecting it to be a bigger for the price we paid. We booked through a travel agent so I think you should book directly for a better rate. We found it easy to get Ubers to and from the hotel. We even used Uber to go to Rodeo Dr and Hollywood sign rather than doing a tour. As there were 4 of us it worked out cheaper and I was advised not to book a tour as it's not worth it. It was much cheaper to Uber to Universal Studios than having the agent book a transfer. Other posts mention the homeless people nearby but they were not a problem. Should we visit Hollywood again I would consider this hotel.

bwhollywood, Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the Review. We will be doing a full rooms Renovation in 2019-2020 ...Come back and take a look, it should be wonderful! Our Front Desk is always willing to find great prices on tours of Hollywood and you are very correct, Uber is the least expensive way to get around in Hollywood. Hope you have a great vacation!

"Noisiest Hotel Ever "

michellegC9713OJ, Faulconbridge, Australia 02/05/2019

My family recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during our recent trip to LA. I would love to rate this hotel higher as it is a really cool place to stay. The room was clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and the onsite diner provided yummy food. The decor was also interesting, capturing the Hollywood vibe. This hotel is in walking distance (30 minutes) to the Walk of Fame and other Hollywood attractions and we used Uber to easily access all other attractions such as Universal Studios and the Outlets. However, this hotel is completely ruined by its noisy environment. We didn't sleep at all while we were there. Its design means voices echo all through the hotel- both other guests and cleaning staff. A delivery truck arrived every morning at 4am which woke us and from then on we could hear all kinds of other noises. The air conditioning is also extremely loud, so we had to turn it off, which left the room stuffy and hot and had us waking in a sweat everyday. We couldn't open the windows though, due to the outside noise. It's such a shame because if it wasn't for the noise I would give this hotel 4 stars.


User 28/04/2019

Expensive rates for what you got. Very noisy. Could hear people in other rooms and walking very loud from people above our room and charged $22 a night to park. It seemed like a very old building. Could use a make over.

"Great Hotel with a Hollywood Vibe"

953melissat, Gloucester, United Kingdom 28/04/2019

Stayed 3 nights in this hotel with family. Loved the Hollywood memorabilia through the hotel, including the decoration. Hotel very clean but rooms slightly in need of an update. Restaurant is good, particularly after a long day travelling. Positives and Negatives about the location. On a positive note, Hollywood/Vine metro station is a 5/10 minute walk, we were able to walk from the hotel to Griffith Park, there is a supermarket and a few restaurants/bars 5 minutes walk away. The negative side is that there are a lot of homeless in the area (as there are throughout Hollywood) and we didn't feel comfortable walking in the dark. The nearby freeway also makes the rooms noisy if you're at the front of the hotel as there is no double glazing. I would recommend this hotel but there may be better locations.

We were so surprised when we arrived and saw how neat and clean and wonderfully decorated this hotel is. Our room was spacious, well decorated just like the rest of the hotel and above all was clean and looked recently updated. It was nice having a loveseat in the room and the bathroom was phenomenal

"Such a great overall experience!!!"

This was one of the nicest places I stayed in a while. The location was great as well as the staff. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I will be traveling down here more often and this is where I will be staying. The room decor was awesome and the pool was literally right outside the door. The pool is heated and it rained two of the days, but we still used it. The staff was great and made everything very easy for us.

TravelGuy72, Chicago, Illinois 06/03/2019

Stayed here 2 nights before a conference. It's my go-to hotel-friendly staff, close to things to do. I stayed in the main building this time, and it was a bit nicer than courtyard rooms. Cafe attached is awesome. Easy access to 101. Solid room.

"Great Affordable Hollywood Appearance"

Carola E, Bakersfield, California 28/02/2019

This is a really fun hotel near all the Hollywood action, but in a more neighborhood setting. The decor is retro in all the right ways with funky Hollywood murals and framed photos of stars throughout. Uber or Lyft will take you anywhere quickly, so once the valet has parked your car FOR FREE you can get to attractions safely. Walking after dark is not recommended due to the number of homeless people camped out on Gower Street under the underpass, and unfortunate situation throughout LA. Walking during the day is fine and fun. You are close to some interesting restaurants and coffee places, bookstore, and Gelson's Market, a high end grocery store. The donut place next door is excellent for a quick breakfast and beverage. I highly recommend a stay if you want to see the Hollywood and Vine area or go to the Pantages Theater. Don't miss the movie quotes embedded in the parking lot. You can have fun trying to figure out what movie each is from. The staff was very helpful and the room very nice for the price. The room was surprisingly quiet as ours backed to a neighborhood not the street. The set up with the closet having the microwave and nice refrigerator in one side of it was a great use of space and made reheating or keeping things cold so convenient. The coffee set-up was just fine too. We appreciated a better brand of tea bags too.

"our go to place , when visiting west Hollywood"

Roxanne M, Huntington Beach, California 25/02/2019

don't want to give away our secret place to stay - { even if we're sort local , from Huntington Beach and don't feel like fighting traffic home after a long night at the Pantages } walking distance from Pantages- if you don't mind the ' bums' along the street . attached Cafe 101 is 24hrs and food decent - nothing to write home about but it is available for last minute bites. there is a covered price for valet parking- only wish the hotel might discount parking ? décor of hotel is covered with Hollywood memorabilia in hallways, elevators and rooms ! - so if you're a movie bluff - this is the place mostly from the 1900's- 80's fame. have never check out the ' lounge/ bar area'. pool is mostly for dipping - and it sits mainly in the shade most of the day. never seen anyone it it of all the times we've been here. clean and very comfy mattress and bathrooms with toiletries .

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
So the "Bum" thing sort of Bums us all out here in Hollywood. The homeless is how we like to refer to the persons living on the street. Its a sad situation, but its also effects the curb appeal of Hollywood for the tourist industry. We do have full 24 hour security at the hotel and 24 hour valet service. You wont see many near the hotel but there are some under the free ways. We will be conducting a full renovation of the property in late 2019 come back and visit us soon!

"It's classic!"

User 23/02/2019

This hotel is funky, fun, clean, friendly, in a perfect location, fairly priced for L.A., and has the 101 Coffee Shop on the property - though you can't charge your meals to the room! There's also now the Mini Bar that I fully intend to try next time. The Valet parking guys are super responsive and polite and the cost is half + of any other L.A. hotel. Notice I said hotel - this is not a motel. I will stay there again!

"Visit to Hollywood with friends"

User 23/01/2019

We stayed here in January 2019. Although it rained EVERY SINGLE DAY we were in LA, coming back to this Hotel brightened up our day! ROOMS: The rooms here are amazing! They are decorated with photographs of actors. The beds and the pillows were SOOO comfortable! The rooms were immaculate. My room had two double beds and faced the courtyard overlooking the rooms. It was great. The TV was mounted on the wall in the middle of the room so it didnt matter which bed you were in, you had perfect view of the TV. There was a clock radio in the middle of the two beds on a bedside table. This had two USB outlets that you could use to charge your mobile phone etc. The bathroom was immaculate and not only did it look clean....but it smelt clean. The rooms also consisted of a fridge and coffee machine. The cleaners do an amazing job cleaning these rooms. LOCATION The location would be the only real thing that was a problem. It was at most a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Boulevard.....but not to the main attractions. It takes you to the dodgy end of the Boulevard. It is then at least another 20 minute walk to Garumans Theatre etc. I suggest you do not walk this at night. Catch an Uber or taxi. There is a small supermarket next door across the street. It is very limited in what it sells but it has water and soft drink and most small snacks. SERVICE The staff working on the front counter were always friendly. They were always more than happy to go out of their way to assist you in anyway that they could. We caught Uber's everywhere we went and the gentlemen at the Valet were so friendly and helpful also. They always had a smile on their face and were always happy to assist us. FOOD While breakfast is not included, there is the Cafe 101 located on the ground floor. I cannot recommend this highly enough. The waiters take a bit of warming up to you but overall, the food and coffee is great and it is open until 3am every day! FACILITIES There is a huge pool in the middle of the complex. It is a great feature and I can see that it would be extremely appealing in the warmer months! There is parking on site however we did not use this facility. There is a laundry on site however the only time we went to use the washing machines, they were unavailable. It appeared that the hotel was using the machines at the time to wash the sheets and towels. There is also a vending machine with water, soft drinks, snacks and washing powder. There is an ATM on site. My only complaint would be that arrived back to the Hotel after a long day and sat on my bed. I reached over to turn on the lamp that was there the previous few days beforehand and it was gone. I asked one of the cleaners what had happened with it and she said did I want it? I told her yes as the lighting in the room was not the greatest and the light bulb above my bed was blown. She said she would speak to her manager and get back to me. She arrived not long after with a replacement lamp. The next morning.....I got a nice surprise when my clock radio alarm went off at 6am!!! I never touched the clock radio the whole time I was there. I used my own phone charger so I was a bit disappointed that the alarm had been set and that someone had come in to my room while I was not there and took the lamp! Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends and I would stay here again. The double showers are a bonus!!!

"Quaint convenience"

User 21/01/2019

Quaint historical Hollywood hotel so convenient to theaters and within walking distance of restaurants. Smaller so front desk knew you by name. Very accommodating - we switched rooms from poolside to older streetside building no hassle. Will stay here again when in Hollywood. Oh, the beds were comfy and noise level pretty darn quiet fir steers if Hollywood. Parking a breeze and convenient.

"Disappointing for the cost"

tangier14, Phoenix, Arizona 21/01/2019

I needed to make an overnight business trip in early January, and booked this hotel due to its location. First, they charged my credit card almost a full week before I arrived which I thought was unusual (and just before the end of 2018). The room I was given was closest to the freeway, and the noise was terrible. The windows use plantation shutters to block light and these were minimally effective. I believe the dining area was just below my room, and I heard the constant thump, thump, thump of the bass of whatever music they were piping through their speakers. There was a $20 charge to park at the hotel, and the next morning they brought me the wrong car. The car entryway is difficult to see. The decor is lovely, but that's not the primary purpose for being in a hotel. The area didn't feel safe, although the staff touted the walking proximity to several Hollywood sites. I wouldn't walk there at night, alone.

"Good location uncomfortable beds"

User 19/01/2019

5 min walk from the end of the Hollywood walk of fame some bars and restaurants in walking distance 5-10 mins Beds soft and lumpy Slow running shower which took 10 minutes to warm up Really really loud air con so couldn't have on at night Thin walls and corridors Fab cafe and cocktail bar

"Staff is very helpful!"

User 16/01/2019

We had a great experience at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills. We especially liked that there were places to walk to to eat dinner and than it was a 10 minute walk to Hollywood Blvd. To see the stars. The Valet and staff were helpful and friendly.

"Just ok"

Kathryn D, sydney 15/01/2019

Stayed here for two nights with my husband and two teenagers. Firstly, the beds were not queen sized. They were definitely double beds and this made it very uncomfortable. I'm know LA is expensive, especially at Christmas time but next time I would spend more money and stay somewhere else a bit less budget. The Indian guy at the front desk was really nice and really helpful and a little disappointed that I'm an Aussie that doesn't like cricket! The valet parking guy was really pushy wanted to valet park our car even though it was too big to fit in the parking garage and had to stay outside where we'd already parked!! It was close to Hollywood Walk of Fame but the area USA lot seedier than I thought it would be. Location wise it was good for a couple of days. The diner downstairs was pretty good and we went there for dinner. We also used the laundry to do washing and there's a couple of lounges to sit on while you're waiting. I didn't feel comfortable leaving my washing and going back to the room because you didn't need a card to get into the laundry room. All in all it was good for a budget stay and it does have old school charm but it's not my kid of hotel.

"Character survives in Hollywood!"

Steven B, Surrey 14/01/2019

The room was clean and neat with that old time character built in. Hotel is quaint and fun! Staff were nice and helpful. 101 Café was like a time warp with the décor but the food was all time good! This is one way to experience the Hollywood of days gone by! Lobby decorations were of course pictures of past and more modern time movie and television stars. But, what was more interesting was the cancelled cheques to and from some of the big names and the sometimes small amounts the received!

"A week stay at Best Western"

User 13/01/2019

A very comfortable, clean room, with a friendly and very accommodating staff helped make our week long stay very enjoyable. The attached diner made meal time convenient and the food was delicious service was excellent.

"I loved it - but it might not be for everyone"

User 06/01/2019

I enjoyed my stay here. In fact, I'll most likely stay here again. But, there are a few things beyond control of the hotel which might make it unsuitable for some people. First, the good bits. My family room was modern, spacious and spotless. The bedding was like sleeping on a cloud and there was a coffee maker, fridge and microwave (but no plates) in the room. The big LCD tv had a wide selection of cable channels too and the wifi was free and fast. The hotel staff were a real credit to Best Western. Really helpful and polite The hotel has a funky Hollywood theme (check out the pics) and the hotel bar and 101 Coffee Shop downstairs is simply amazing (you may even see a celebrity. there). The location is very central for sightseeing in LA and a great place to set up base. While Now for the not so good stuff. And to be clear, these are no fault of the hotel or management. If you're planning on venturing out on foot, you WILL come across homeless people. If you're not used to this, it may be confronting or even scary. But I had no problems either during the night or day. The hotel is located on a busy street and close to an extremely busy freeway. I could see (and hear) the hum of the freeway 24/7. I also heard a few emergency vehicles screaming by in the dead of the night. If you're a light sleeper, it might be a pain. I had a wonderful stay here and would like to thank the hotel staff and management.

"Good location and price"

pipinana02, Singapore 06/01/2019

Love that this hotel has good price, and located right in Hollywood. Hollywood sign can be seen few steps from the hotel. We also love that there's self service laundry, and there's supermarket within walking distance. Not much food option within walking distance though.

"Not so great"

704jessiec, Rocklin, California 03/01/2019

We came to town for four days to visit Universal Studios and decided to stay here since we are Best Western rewards members. The location is not that great. It's close to Hollywood Blvd., but the walk down there from the hotel is full of homeless people. The room was noisy at night since it's close to the freeway. The lobby is tiny and there's no coffee. So, you are confined to your room if you want to take a break from sightseeing. Parking is pretty much valet only. I recommend leaving your car parked there for the duration of your visit and getting an Uber everywhere. On the positive side, the hotel and valet staff are very friendly and accommodating. The 101 Coffee Shop in the hotel is very good, though pricey. If you walk a short distance down Franklin Street, there is a very good pizza place called Fresh Brothers. And there's a good bakery right next to it. If we come back for a visit, we'll try the other Best Western in the area instead of staying at this again.

I would rate this closer to Poor than Average. The service is first-rate. The rooms are okay. The noise is ridiculous. If you're looking for a quiet place, skip this. I stayed for a week and didn't get a good night's sleep. My first room, though spacious, was directly over a very noisy driveway with speed bumps. All night and early morning there were vans trundling over them as if in a stock car race. I switched to a room in the new building, and the result was not much better. Kids in the pool screaming at 8am, and maids shouting and rolling their carts at the same time. In some ways, this is a glorified Days Inn. What passes for a kitchenette is a sink and a microwave. No plates or bowls or flatware. You'll be going to Dollar Tree more than once. And then there is Hollywood. Other than a stroll down Franklin to the 'village,' you do not want to walk. If you do, you will be faced with a gauntlet of homeless communities the likes of which make NY's problem pale by comparison. Shame on LA.

"Wonderful room and decor"

Cattle-raiser, Northeast Oklahoma 31/12/2018

We loved this hotel! All staff we encountered were very helpful. The decor is all Hollywood stars which was extremely interesting. Our room was big with a mini kitchen area and double sinks in the bathroom. We had not issues here.

"mediocre hotel"

55740Brian, Cypress, Texas 23/12/2018

This was an overpriced hotel with 4 star prices for a two star value. All they had was pictures of movie stars. no breakfast included, small lobby, no amenities, small rooms with half bath,mediocre service

"Poor customer service and fraudulent billing"

User 19/12/2018

The Good: 1) Hotel location: The location of this BW Plus is ideal for those wanting to visit Hollywood Blvd, Sunset Blvd, and wanting to be close to the transit line. At the same time, it is far away enough (located in the Hollywood Hills area near Franklin Village), where there is some peace from those busy areas. 2) Employee Max: He was very helpful and respectful on the phone and when we came to leave our luggage at the hotel, on the day of check-in. He gave us a map and pointed out key areas and tours. He took his time to answer our questions and to give suggests/recommendations. 3) Son of Housekeeping manager: He came to bring us sheets for the bed. He was respectful, courteous and even helped us change the sheets on both beds. Even though he reported not knowing how to do this, he helped us anyway. 4) Hotel room: Besides the stained sheets, street noise coming from outside, mildew smell in the bathroom and water stains under the sink, the room was nice. We had two queen beds. The bathrooms had double sinks. There is a fridge and microwave in the room. The remote control came in a sack that indicated that it is fresh. We had a corner room with only one room to the side of us. Didn't hear any noise from their room although, we heard when they opened and closed their door. The Bad 1) Stained Sheets: I always check the sheets when checking into a hotel. We noticed reddish brown (dried blood color) stains on the sheets on both beds. They were changed out but still not something that should have been. 2) Damaged item: I had a bust made and left it in the room while we did tourist stuff. We came back and there was a gash on the forehead and hairline of the bust. We called the front desk and spoke to Gio regarding the damage. He said to contact the manager Brian the next morning. Unless someone else came in the room, didn't steal anything, but messed up the bust, we highly suspect it was done by housekeeping. The Ugly: 1) Joseph Assistant General Manager: Where do I start. This man is useless as a manager and needs more training on customer service. I called the front desk the next morning, regarding the damage to my bust and to clear up why I had two reservations when it should have only been one. Even though I asked for Brian, I was given Joseph instead (was not told Brian wasn't there). Joseph sounded disinterested in what happened and appeared to not want to do anything about it or even apologize for the possible action of his employ. He then offered to take the parking fee off my account. I will talk about this more below. I did not have a car and therefore, there should not have been a parking fee on my account. I mostly heard crickets when I informed him of this fraudulent error. I had to elicit answers from him. Even when he answered, it was expressionless and tended to be in one word, robotic answers. I even had to ask him to investigate with housekeeping about the bust. He offered two food vouchers and to take off the $5 hotel fee for each day of our hotel stay. My goal was not to get free stuff. My goal is to make sure housekeeping was held accountable for their actions. I was also erroneously booked for two rooms at the hotel. I told Joseph about this and he said this was an issue with, which I understand and planned to speak with them about. He said he would have to speak to them about it. I could not take Joseph's lackluster responses anymore, and asked him about Brian, being that I was told he is the manager. Joseph acted like he didn't want to tell me about Brain. I then asked him who is his boss and he told me to contact Best Western corporate, which I did. As I was checking out, Joseph was at the counter. I asked for the receipt so I can make sure nothing else was on my account. Joseph gave me the receipt however, it didn't say the parking was taken off. I asked him about this and he kept telling me it is not charged only authorized. I finally asked him to write in on the receipt, which he reluctantly did. I also asked him to look at the bust and he wouldn't. He said he doesn't need to. He didn't care. He barely wanted to apologize. Yet, as I walked away, I heard him apologize to someone over the phone. I asked him about contacting, as he agreed to do, and he acted like he didn't know what I was talking about. I “reminded” him that he mentioned contacting them. 2) Fraudulent charge: As mentioned, I was charged $22 for parking. We didn't have a car. I didn't even know we were charged for parking in the first place until Joseph told me he will take the fee off. Being that he was emotionless when speaking about this fraudulent charge, I asked if he was concerned about this happening not only to me but other guest. Again, crickets. I continued to tell him we do not have a car and that I do not understand how this can be put on the bill. The hotel could easily look at the video footage to see we never checked in a car. I asked Joseph how was I charged for parking and by whom. He indicated he didn't know. He then indicated that he didn't know who worked that day and that even if he did know, he would not tell me the person's name. I wasn't asking for the person's name more so than asking him to check into who did it and how it happened. I wonder how many other guest have been charged for things they did not do/have. 3) Accountability: Housekeeping should have left a note indicating that she damaged the item. Additionally, I was informed by Best Western corporate that the hotel is not responsible for stolen or damaged items. So, basically, your stuff can be taken or damaged without any recourse. Honestly, it isn't about the compensation. It is about staff coming into the room and damaging an item, being charged for something we didn't have, and poor customer services from Joseph. The way the situation was handled is unacceptable. I understand someone is innocent until proven guilty at the same time, he didn't even want to investigate the situation until I asked him to and appeared to not care. The hotel location is great. I highly encourage anyone staying here to check your bank statement and don't expect anything higher than poor customer services from Joseph. He is selective with it so expect the least.

"Very comfortable stay "

User 19/12/2018

The thing I liked most about the hotel was that I found the bed extremely comfortable. Rooms were large and bathroom spacious, however I would have liked a bath rather than just a shower and the bathroom size could easily accommodate this. Location was good, used the valet each day and the service was good.

"great vibe"

Limer69, Wheat Ridge, Colorado 13/12/2018

Great place to spend a few days in The Hollywood area. Great price. Super duper clean! Not the newest facility or furnishings but none of that mattered because everything was spotless and comfortable. Great restaurant too! Highly recommend this location!

"Great location in Hollywood"

markjanine2018, Melbourne, Australia 15/11/2018

The reception staff were very helpful and we were provided with a great room on level 4. You could actually see the Hollywood sign from our room. Its only a ten minute walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and there are numerous eating spots close by. There is an old fashioned diner at the hotel as well as an intimate little bar. The food at the diner was great and we ate there several times for breakfast and dinner. The room was quite spacious, it was very clean and the bed was King size and very comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. So nice to hear you were able to stay in one of our rooms with the Hollywood Sign View. Please take some time and come and visit us again soon, in 2019 we will be conducting a upgrade and rooms renovation to make our guest experience even better!

"First stop of our honeymoon..."

amnicr, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 07/11/2018

We recently stayed at this hotel for the first leg of our honeymoon. We got into LA pretty early (earlier than anticipated) and were really hoping to be able to check-in early. The front-desk staff were WONDERFUL (I believe we worked with Rosa... she was absolutely amazing) and kept us updated on if we'd be able to do the early check-in. We left our bags behind the desk (locked up, and with voucher tickets to boot) and decided to explore LA on foot while we waited a bit. The front desk called me to let us know we COULD check-in early, which was awesome for us. The hotel itself is super funky, we really liked the retro vibe. The room was surprisingly large - same with the bathroom. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was really awesome. We were only there for a night but really loved having the 101 coffee shop right downstairs. They do a killer breakfast burrito and we liked the coffee, too. If we ever find ourselves back in the Hollywood Hills, I suspect we'll opt to stay here again.

"Pleasantly surprised"

Passport16445819867, Los Angeles, California 05/11/2018

I booked a room at this hotel because I had a gift card and it was near our concert venue. It was a great experience. great food, friendly & helpful staff, great coffee, and walking distance to the Fonda.

"Friendly staff, cool decor, great location"

BRW928, Tampa, Florida 05/11/2018

From the valet to the front desk to the housekeeping staff, everyone I encountered here was very friendly. Walking into my room for the first time definitely drew a "Wow, cool" reaction. The Hollywood theme is fun and consistent. The room itself was comfortable and spacious. It was a great location for the many different entries on my calendar during my time there. The one disappointment that definitely merits mention is the inconsistent WiFi. While my laptop would connect, sometimes it would just randomly not be connected, and it never cooperated with my phone the whole time I was there (meaning, it would connect but say, "The Internet may not be available."). The valet fee adds up if you're there enough days (and there's some unexplained $5/day hotel fee), but, sadly, that's the cost of doing business in L.A. Having the 101 Coffee Shop on-site (downstairs) is great too.

"What a surprise"

User 01/11/2018

Checking into this hotel we were pleasantly surprised Ticketmaster step so many old Hollywood pictures on the walls and in the elevator what are unique and fun hotel to stay at one unique item is fighting in elevator with Lucille Ball and Groucho Marx for life size pictures kept you company on the elevator

"Return Performance"

Barb137, Lewes, Delaware 27/10/2018

A most pleasant experience in a society where good customer service is lacking. Our room, corridors, elevators, and lobby area was always clean. Staff always pleasant and helpful. Will not hesitate to stay here again.

"Perfect loacation"

HandSi34, Northampton, United Kingdom 25/10/2018

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room was adequate huge bathroom and little kitchen area. Staff were very helpful. Hotel is in ideal location 5-10 min walk and you are near stop 15 of the hop on hop off red route bus. This is the last stop on the tour as it's starts further along outside Dolby. There's a little shop less than 1 minute walk away which sells food and drink and cafe 101 is just next door for meals

"Highs And Lows"

User 21/10/2018

We found this hotel via our travel agent, and it was a mixed bag of experiences. The history of the hotel is fantastic with it's nod to Hollywood decor but once you get passed the amazing autographed photos and elegant lobby you enter into a basic, cramped hotel room with some updates. I will say that the laminate floors were a very nice surprise as was the large double shower in room 119! Unfortunately the very cramped space meant that the bathroom door opened mere inches from the toilet right against the shower. The headboards were orange buttoned upholstry that didn't appear to have been updated for decades! The beds themselves were very comfortable though, and the shutters on the windows were great too (I wanted to have them at my house LOL)! Having to open a window (in the shower) onto the pool space to keep humidity out of the bathroom (with or without the shower on) not so great. It lacks privacy and makes for a lot of noise. We opted not to use the microwave, as there was an actual black burn mark inside on the top of the unit which made us feel unsure of it's safety. Speaking of safety, if you are not familiar with the area the hotel is in and are traveling as a family, walking this area at dusk or at night isn't exactly comfortable. The area is populated with homeless people (heartbreaking) and those trying to approach you to make a sale. It's an interesting (sometimes sad) and unique experience but unnerving all the same if you have children with you. Day trips down Hollywood Blvd would be more comfortable. The man at the front desk of the hotel with the ginger hair and close kept beard was fantastic! I think he is the manager and I wish I could remember his name to thank him personally. He was always cheerful and helpful with everything! The housekeeping staff was a bit standoffish for some reason, but the valets were always very helpful. I can't complain about the service at all as it was very good. We didn't get a chance to try the cafe downstairs, but I wish we had. According to the staff, Ryan Gosling comes there for coffee so it must be a pretty great place! All in all it's a good hotel if you need to be in the area and are simply looking for a place to sleep. Although your sleep may be interrupted if you face the alley like we did as there was arguing and banging at all hours! A fabulous piece of Hollywood history, but definitely has room for improvement considering the price point!

"Great Service"

User 21/10/2018

We stayed here when visiting L.A. and it is at a great location as it is walking distance to Hollywood Walk of Fame, The Chinese Theatre etc. Our room was clean, big and had a nice, very big bathroom. For dinner, the restaurant was alright, but the best meals they sevred were breakfast. The absolute best part of our stay here though, was the service as the staff at the front desk were very helpful and service minded. If you stay here, make sure to try the doughnuts and thaifood right next door!

"Good Location-Great Staff!"

PCMSI, Erie, Pennsylvania 15/10/2018

Great value for a very nice hotel with an awesome, friendly staff. Pool, work out room, attached restaurant and generous sized rooms that have a kitchenette. Walkable to Hollywood Blvd. and restaurants and grocery stores.

"A little inconsistent"

pamac2954, Verona, Wisconsin 09/10/2018

I have stayed here quite a bit lately and have had mostly pretty good experiences. The location is great and the staff is lovely. The beds are really comfortable. But the quality of your experience will depend on what room you get. Some of them are nice and big and quiet and everything works right. Others are small and noisy and have quirky appliances, etc. Try to get a room in the main building away from the street and not the building that houses the swimming pool.

"Overall good"

User 06/10/2018

Only stayed 2 nights but the facilities where generally good. The rooms provided all we needed but were a little cramped. The big bonus for the hotel is the location within walking distance of the walk of fame assuming that's important to you and only 2.5 miles to the observatory which is a nice walk. Onsite there is the 101 café which provides good and reasonably priced food and the hotel has a nice bar areas, Within a few hundred yards there are other restaurants available. The main negative would be I just found the layout of the hotel a bit confusing with the access to the car park sort of going through part of the hotel and there was no in room safe (reception does provide safe facilities at no cost). As others have stated there are homeless people in the area but were not directly outside the hotel, they never bothered us unlike the tour operators on the walk of fame who were a pain. Overall this Hotel is good value if you want to be near the walk of fame area.

"Nope nope nope"

User 03/10/2018

We booked the hotel for five nights. The carpet in the hallway heading to the room needs cleaning/replacing. It was very worn and dirty. The tv in our room did not work. The room itself needs redone especially the bathroom. Smoking is prohibited in the room but every night we smelled marijuana in the hallway. The only place to smoke a cigarette is near the road, where you are constantly approached by homeless people asking for a cigarette or money. Across the street appeared to be an escort service (Putting it mildly)disguised as a restaurant with cars pulling up regularly letting young girls in or out all hours of the night. Kinda sketchy area and safety was a concern even with the security officer, who was less than reassuring. The only plus was it was in a good location accessing most anything.

Thank you for Staying at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills. Our hotel will be doing a complete renovation in 2019! I know this does not help your experience, but we hope you will visit us again. Hollywood is a growing city, unfortunately as the city grows some of the issues grows as well. The homeless issue in Hollywood has grown. Being that the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel is in a residential area we probably have less of an issue within our area. Never the less any experience that is a negative for our guests while staying at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel is greatly important to find a remedy. Our hotel does employ an outside security company and in addition we have a valet company on property 21 out of 24 hours in a day. Thank you again for choosing the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel

"Great location "

GezandJune1, Stockport, United Kingdom 01/10/2018

We had a room by the pool which was part of a three story square. Problem was that one antisocial person made it bad for all. However great breakfasts at 101 and handy for the walk of fame. Loads of restaurants nearby. Funny smell in reception. Great pics in room, woke up to Jane Mansfield every day.

"Excellent value"

DaveTUSC, Scotch Plains, New Jersey 17/09/2018

We were very pleased with this hotel. Ask to stay on the "old" or "original" side, it has bigger rooms. A nice touch is they have pictures with autographs of stars in every room, hallway, and stairway. We had a King bed room and it was very large with a large bathroom. The hotel also has a nice diner (open 21 hours a day) and a bar. Parking is valet-only for $22 extra a day - although nowadays, with Uber, you may not need a car at all. Walking distance to Hollywood (which is still pretty seedy) but central enough to travel to all the highlights around LA. Highly recommended.

"Nice big rooms, excellent bar, good breakfast"

Nial M, London, United Kingdom 16/09/2018

Service at the hotel was really good. The rooms are well sized with big comfy beds. And breakfast served in the diner was excellent. Also a lovely in-house bar, with delicious drinks and really friendly bar staff. Good value for money, and good location for exploring WeHo.

"Good location for Hollywood Boulevard "

Tamara2334, London, United Kingdom 13/09/2018

My family stayed in this hotel in August and were given 2 disabled access rooms. These rooms were large with enormous bathrooms but had very small windows which didn't let in a lot of light. When I made the booking I had assumed we would have rooms around the pool as the photos of the hotel in the publicity material show. Unfortunately, our rooms were on the other side of the hotel and were served by one very slow lift! The hotel is clean, the staff are very helpful and it is only a short walk to Hollywood Boulevard. The restaurant on the ground floor is excellent.

"nice location"

lonliesoul, lonliesoul 09/09/2018

Hotel was nice, workers were nice, efficient and quick. The person who checked me in failed to mention the elevator, so I thought it was just for the employees, so we hauled our suitcases up 2 flights of stairs, but we learned from there. When we got into our room it smelled like piss. There's just no other way to put it. I don't know if it came in from the streets cause the windows were open, but once we closed the windows the smell eventually went away. Other than that, the room was clean and pretty big. The room also has a microwave, a mini fridge and a coffee maker. (Although, I never use the coffee maker, due to a story a friend told me about a friend.)Across the street is an Arco, which we kept going to for snacks and drinks. It's a 10 minute drive to Universal Studios and very close to the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is also close to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles...which we failed to visit. For the price I paid and the location, it's not bad. I would stay here again, if I was visiting Hollywood.

"Overnight in Hollywood"

momof3mj, Moose Jaw, SK 01/09/2018

The outside of this hotel made me 2nd guess my decision of staying 8 dont think it was quite as pictured but then once I side it was wowing. Staff from valet to checkin and the cleaners were all very pleasant to talk with. My only complaint is that there are no towels at the pool but we really liked the decor of the whole interior of hotel, pool and room.

"Great location and cafe "

Wassa_1976, Cambridge, United Kingdom 19/08/2018

Stayed for 4 nights. Location perfect - it's about 20 mins walk from the Hollywood blvd. but don't walk there at night - it was pretty scary! Starlines celeb tours are also the best tour to take (from madam toussads) not the one recommended by the hotel. The hotel room was great - clean and spacious - air con quite loud but it worked. Best thing is the coffee house 101 - so cool and good food. Overall a good hotel and good value.

"Great location for Greek & Pantages"

jzk131, Las Vegas, Nevada 17/08/2018

First time we've stayed here and will from now on when we are going to a concert at the Greek Theater or a show at Pantages. This time we went to a concert. This location was ideal. We were far enough way from the Bowl that we didn't get caught in their traffic after concert. They also have a great coffee shop which stays open till 3 am. A couple of suggestions: 1. Enter off Carmen & stop and ask valet where to park. We like parking our own car. You pay regardless if you use valet or not. 2. I think I would see about getting a room toward back of hotel. It was a bit noisy, however with the a/c on it did drown out any noise. Staff was friendly & helpful.

"So close to anything and so cosy"

sandrinesosinski, Donnemarie-Dontilly, France 02/08/2018

At first, you have an impression of being in a very remote place when you arrive. Then you discover that you're only a block away from Hollywoof Boulevard and at 2 stations from Universal Studios. Even if you arrive early, the staff do all that they can to provide you with your room as quick as possible. Breakfast is not included but you can go shopping at Gelson's (something like a 5-minute walk from the hotel). The room is very clean and equipped with anything that you need. The pool is also very clean. The staff help you book any excursions and they are really nice. They just make you feel like home. We'll be back !

"Fabulous hotel! So retro looking and a great restaurant too!"

User 30/07/2018

If you are a big fan of everything Vintage Hollywood - you'll LOVE this hotel! I loved the vintage, art deco feel of the lobby and downstairs area, the 101 Coffee shop on the main floor is a grateful place to eat and only adds to the vintage feel! Beds were extremely comfortable and our room was surprisingly roomy! We had three people and lots of bags and still so roomy! Pool was so cool, placed directly in the middle of the courtyard hotel's center! Laundry facilities and vending machines dispensing candy, soda AND laundry detergent were also a big perk. Parking was the biggest problem, if you arrive late to the hotel or have a late night....the self park apparently fills up and you're left to the mercy of the valets. Of the three valets we encountered, two of them were downright rude. Parking was $22 a day for guests, not free and definitely not worth it since the valets treat you like your a criminal trying to sneak onto the property. All the other hotel employees were just wonderful and so friendly! Another BIG PERK was having the wonderful 101 Coffee Shop on the main floor. I'd recommend this little gem even if we weren't staying here! The food is delicious, especially the meatless breakfast sausage! The atmosphere and decor is totally retro AND they're open early and stay open super late - perfect Hollywood late night spot!

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience. The staff were always helpful and nice and the room was cleaned well each day. The location is great and we never felt unsafe even walking the area late at night. The bathroom and room itself were spacious. Make sure you eat at the attached 101 coffee shop and the ice cream place down the street, Van Leeuwen! We would definitely recommend staying here.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. I will make sure I forward the thoughts you have on our staff to them directly.

Hope you had a great Vacation.

"Easy to find; easy to use; good staff and location"

Ivor B, Portsmouth, United Kingdom 17/06/2018

I had booked two rooms for us and friends. The check in was fairly easy, the rooms were split between us and our friends and the car was left with the valet. We only had the car for the next day so this was explained at check in, however we were charged and hopefully this has been rectified upon check out. The room was fabulous, really comfy beds, crisp white sheets, and plenty of space. We had booked the queen bed rooms. There was a fridge in the room, with microwave for ease of use if you wished to 'dine in'. The towels and sheets could be changed daily if so needed, just use the card on the bed!. The Wi-Fi dropped out intermittently but the TV was good. The lift was really slow but it wasn't hard to use the stairs. The pool is a good size, but the sun isn't there all day due to the high side buildings its between. The hotel is well situated for walking out to various tourist hotspots, i.e walk of fame, capitol records, etc. The hotel is easy to find off 101/Vine Street and the valet service is easy to use. There is a small busy mini bar to use and they serve a decent porter :-) There is a decent coffee shop collocated in the building but not part of the hotel, don't expect to be able to add the food charges to your room, this will have to be separate. If we were to visit Los Angeles again we would stay here, the hotel and the staff are very good.

"Perfect location- very noisy hotel "

kayleyharrison, London, United Kingdom 13/06/2018

The location of this hotel is perfect! Only an 8min walk to Hollywood Blvd where you can find the walk of fame and lots of touristy places! The staff were very nice and helpful- we were given our room and when we got there we had a knock on the door from maintenance almost straight away- he said our sink needed unclogging- we didn't even know. So he fixed it for us and also reimbursed us our nights parking fee for the trouble. Parking valet- make use of this it is very good- careful if you have a tall car it doesn't fit under some roofs so best to hand the keys over to the helpful Valet staff. Check out the Mini Bar it was very cool! The only negative was- it was Very noisy! Being a square all the rooms are around the pool and in close proximity. We were on floor 2 and it was never quiet. Constantly hear people talking, walking around, in the pool, moving and banging furniture around, screaming kids munching around at early hours of the morning. Other than the noise I would highly recommend this hotel!

"Good hotel if you're looking to visit universal studios."

galaxygirl26, Gateshead, United Kingdom 09/06/2018

Picked this hotel very quickly because we it was a last minute decision to visit universal studios. We picked this hotel because it was in close proximity and was a short drive. When we drove around the area there were a lot of homeless people on the opposite side of the street, it made us feel a bit uneasy. I booked the hotel in gbp and wit the conversion to usd and the taxes and room fees and additional parking the cost of the hotel for two nights was very expensive. The room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. We had a huge walk in shower and double sink. The hotel was nice but next time visiting Los Angeles for the first time I would probably choose to stay somewhere like Beverley Hills however the hotel is located in Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood sign is right up the street from the hotel.

"Great location"

User 03/06/2018

This hotel is a perfect place just off the the Hollywood walk of fame, has a great cafe attached. The rooms are basic a nice little heated pool. The staff were helpful and polite there a small bar nice but I thought pricey that said your in Hollywood.

"Nice Stay"

Dean C, United Kingdom 02/06/2018

Stayed here for 2 nights midweek early May so arriving late 9pm after a long drive from San Francisco just needed a very comfy bed not disappointed the two rooms we had where very clean room and the size of the rooms where know problem quiet large ,check in was easy the guy on the front desk was pleasant and told us about the surrounding areas and only a 10 min walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame safe to walk at night and 10 min drive to Universal and Warner studios,as we had a car we had to pay a parking fee $22 per night which is a standard price in a city so no moans from us we opted for self park so easy,they have a restaurant connected to the hotel the 101 cafe we did eat here two mornings very nice quick service and a varied menu so would we stay here again most defiantly,plus just a footnote our daughter and boyfriend think there room number was 227 had left some cash on there dressing table about $30 in notes and change while we was at Universal studios the cleaner had came in clean the room and put the change neatly stack on the table and not a dime touch says a lot about the staff they employ here well done.

"Great place to stay"

Julie S, Brisbane, Australia 29/05/2018

We stayed for a week, and it was a comfortable room, close to everything, there's a cafe downstairs and a convenience store next door. Lots of cheap eats close by for dinner. Would definitely recommend staying here, friendly staff were very attentive to our needs

"Leisure Stay in Hollywood, Ca"

User 15/05/2018

The BW+ in Hollywood, CA is a nicely refurbished older hotel. The rooms are on the small side but they are nicely done and the bathroom was very nicely done. The Hollywood theme throughout the hotel was attractive and not over done. The attached restaurant and separate Mini Bar was a nice bonus. The convenience of the hotel's location was a real asset. The valet staff was particularly friendly and helpful.

"Best Hotel is Hollywood!"

User 02/05/2018

This is the second time we have stayed at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills and I am convinced there is no where better! Its in a great location, convenient to all LA attractions (WB, Universal, Paramount, Chinese Theater, Griffith Park etc.) and is literally 2 turns off the 101 freeway. It has 24 hour valet parking. Our flight was schedule to come in around midnight and once I called the staff at the front desk made a note of our late check in time, they made sure someone was at the desk when we arrived. Check in went smooth for 12:30am after a 5 hour flight.This hotel also has free wifi!. The 101 coffee shop attached is good for breakfast and is also opened until 3am, so there is always food available. The room was clean and spacious. The reviews of the clean rooms was the reason I decided to try this hotel in the first place 2 years ago and have never looked back since. Keep up the good work! We will be back!

"Really nice clean and comfortable hotel"

dizzyy, Dublin, Ireland 02/05/2018

Was very pleasantly surprised!! Great spacious rooms and bathroom. Diner on site for breakfast, and small bar too. Could walk to lots of sights or the metro. Stores nearby too. Staff were very helpful too.

"A nice, clean hotel with friendly valets"

Brenton T, Mooroolbark, Australia 17/04/2018

I stayed here for 3 nights, and it was brilliant. The pool was just outside my door and is basically the heart of the hotel courtyard. The valet service was excellent and reasonably priced, and the whole place was clean, friendly and accommodating.

"Valet Parking Unnecessary"

User 14/04/2018

Valet parking could not find my vehicle's key and questioned my integrity. When I inquired with the front desk, they would not help. My vehicle's key was found 30 minutes after I asked for my car. Why have a worthless valet parking when you can park your own car. It is actually funny that they want your car's keys to park your car up to 30 feet away from the entrance. Valet parking should be an option and not mandatory for an additional daily parking surcharge.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your important feedback. Unfortunately, many of the hotels have a mandatory valet parking requirement from the city of Hollywood. Because our hotel is in a " residential area" if guest park on the street this might put parking hardship on the local residences. I'm truly sorry for the inconvenience of the situation. I hope you give us another try to exceed your expectations.

"Great location, small rooms and noisey"

LOwen001, Brisbane, Australia 08/04/2018

Great location, rooms are small and only double beds. Carpet is dirty and needs to be changed. Very noisy from other guests walking around and in pool. Parking is expensive $22 per day. Staff are efficient but not overly friendly. Ok to stay but would try somewhere else next time.

"Hotel visit"

fabcha122, Goleta, California 07/04/2018

The hotel room was absolutely amazing! comfortable beds and very roomie! The WiFi was actually very easy to connect to and there wasn't a problem at all! Only there for a concert but excited to return

"Rooms very small"

kryee2018, Hay River, Canada 07/04/2018

Staff at check in was not so pleasant and appeared to be rushing us away. Not even acknowledged the Diamond Membership. Rooms were very small and dark. Internet was not very good. Staff at valet parking was nice and helpful. Décor on interior of lobby and hallways were nice. Exterior basic.

"School trip fun"

Lunamaui, Lahaina, Hawaii 04/04/2018

Our school group consisted of 4 adults and 23 high school students. This hotel and location was perfect for us. The beds and pillows were comfy and the shower was huge with 3 separate shower heads. The staff were all wonderful especially the valet. We had two 15 passenger vans and we were able to park on the side of the entrance driveway. It was about a 10 minute walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and shopping.

"Hollywood "

doublefront, Earth 30/03/2018

We stayed here to be close to the walk of fame in Hollywood. The location is great and easy walking distance. The beds at this hotel were phenomenal. They were so soft and comfortable. Better than my bed at home! Cute decor. Would stay here again

"Good location and price"

termj, Cliffside Park, New Jersey 19/03/2018

I stayed in this hotel in March 2018. The hotel is clean, the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The cafe located in the property offers a great selection and has a good crowd. The walk to Hollywood is convenient, I walked all the time, even at night. It is close to the pick up point for most tours. I recommend it if you are looking for value.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
That is a great combination! Good location and price. Lots of new things are going on in Hollywood and surrounding areas. Being that Hollywood Blvd is just two blocks from the hotel and Universal Studios is just about a mile and half from the front door of the hotel, we hope guests find us centrally located to there needs. Please come back and visit us soon!

"OK Hotel"

powershopper, CT 18/03/2018

The room was spacious, but tired; furniture was worn and the towels were crummy and small. Great decor in the halls - famous photos were a great. The parking valet was a delight. The front desk staff was indifferent and arrogant. A relative, who lived in the neighborhood, told us that the restaurant was excellent, but we didn't have an opportunity to dine there.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
I'm just OK? Well I know we will try harder to make your next stay excellent next time! Thank you for taking the time to write a review, its always valuable to hear from our guests. We will be starting a renovation of the room in April of 2018. I hope you will try us again!

"Best Western Hollywood Hills"

User 14/03/2018

Great location in Hollywood, despite Hollywood being a little shady itself. Plenty to do near by. Room was pretty standard with a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately our room was location around the pool, where other guests gathered to smoke. This really stunk out our room, to the point we had to put towels on the floor to attempt to block out the smoke.

"Good location for Hollywood and Universal Studios"

wuppertaler, Washington 11/03/2018

This is a quirky 50s style hotel with comfortable beds and great pillows. The lobby is full of movie star autographs and the staff is friendly. The best part of the hotel is that it's walking distance to Hollywood and to a trail up to Griffith Observatory. It's also only a 10 minute Uber ride to Universal Studios. The major downside is that there is constant traffic noise and the windows are not particularly well insulated. It's nice having a diner as part of the hotel, though I wish the food had been tastier.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good Morning! Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. I'm glad to hear you were able to make it up to the Griffith Observatory, Such an Iconic place where so many Hollywood movies have been filmed. I'm sorry to hear that the traffic noise at the hotel was annoying. We are installing a new shutter system in the hotel in hopes to help the noise issue. Come back and try us again!

"My Hollywood Visit"

jsalta, Goodyear, Arizona 10/03/2018

The hotel location is great with an easy access to many points of interests like the Universal Studios. Their staff are wonderful! They are very accommodating and are willing to assist you with your questions and needs! The rooms are great! They are well maintained. They've got a very comfortable bed that would rejuvenate you and makes you feel that you are well rested the following day. Their prices are very reasonable as well!

"Superb stay!"

Latha R, Bangalore, Karnataka, India 07/03/2018

We stayed in this hotel during our visit to LA and really loved the room and spacious bathroom with a walk in closet. The small kitchen with a coffeemaker and fresh coffee everyday was very good. It was walking distance from Hollywood Walk of fame and we had a very nice pleasant stay.. would highly recommend this hotel

"Perfectly fine"

TravelGuy72, Chicago, Illinois 04/03/2018

The staff was very nice and helpful. Room was about what you would expect from a hotel at this price point. It was clean and seemed modern/renovated. It is a travel lodge style with doors opening to the outside-rooms face out into the pool courtyard that is fairly loud and echoey, and floor is tiled, so housekeeping carts and luggage being rolled are pretty loud. It is walkable to Hollywood Blvd. The diner there was great with good food and service. Loved all the framed Hollywood/photos and memorabilia! I would have given 4 stars, but I was kept up/woken up by ambient noise/voices from outside, so that was why I gave three, but no huge problems or complaints. I would stay there again if in the area.

"Close But Not Too Close To Hollywood Blvd"

namtupdj, Memphis, Tennessee 25/02/2018

I have actually staid at this hotel many times due to its proximity to relatives just up North Beachwood toward the Hollywood sign. However, I have stayed at 5 other Hollywood area hotels, a couple much closer to the "main drag". This hotel used to be quite reasonable for the area but after some admittedly needed and quality upgrades / renovation, its price has gone up quite a bit (to more or less middle of the road for 3/4 star Hollywood accommodations). Nevertheless, it has generally clean and quiet rooms (except for some on the west and south sides that face the 101) that are far from the usual cookie cutter type one often sees in chain hotels (different floor plans and furniture; lots of unique and room specific Hollywood photos). Well appointed bathrooms with granite and generally large showers / tubes. Comfortable beds. Refrigerator and microwaves and small kitchen sinks in some units. There is limited hotel parking for $20. But at least it is in a covered garage and not on the street. Convenient access to the 101 and the 5. Relatively close to Griffith Park and Observatory and the Los Angeles Zoo. Not too long a walk to Hollywood Blvd. Another feature is the 101 Cafe, where one occasionally sees celebrities. The food is generally pedestrian, but usually wholesome and filling (with some daily special variations and some good deals on breakfast). And the restaurant is connected to the hotel (ground floor). A few restaurants are within walking distance along Franklin to the east (plus a grocery store and deli market / eatery), but many more are (driving) to the south of Franklin on side streets (Thai town and Little Armenia), especially on North Vermont (try the Sidewalk Grill for a quintessential SoCal Hollywood outdoor dining experience). Or hike up toward the Hollywood sign on N Beachwood and try the farm to table Beachwood Cafe. The best / most eclectic breakfast can be had a short drive (or long walk) away at Square One Dining (where one can also watch the comings and goings from a major Scientology building if that suits your inner Thetan).

"Fantastic "

bmamma5, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom 19/02/2018

Just returned back from this hotel , can't complain about anything here . Situated not to far from the Hollywood sign and staff couldn't do enough to help lovely clean place would recommend :) would also get reception staff to sort out trips around we went through travel agent but the hotel had to sort it all out of going through them it's a much better company they use . Cafe 101 again clean polite service price was reasonable too

"Hollywood Hill best Western hotel issues"

User 11/02/2018

Hotel had issues off the bat when they said there's no reservation under my name which I'd made for my sister...turned out they'd changed the name on reservation to my sister'site name without telling me or keeping a paper trail. Only found out coz I told them just in case to see if was in my sister's name. Other best Western hotels kept reservation under my name and used the authorization from to check in guests that I'd specified but this hotel did not even apologize after I helped the troubleshoot to find my original reservation for my sister. ..very arrogant and condescending not to mention bad management and bad customer service. I guess being in Hollywood got to their heads. The room I was given had a bathroom so small enough even midgets would have issues using it. Room had a musty apartmentlike odor too. Lastly the valet situation is badly managed...even though you pay parking fees separately they act like you have to use the valet...very rude and aggressive valet if they find out you won't use them. Lastly they haven'the given me rewards points though I'm a best Western member...worst best Western I've been to. Beware.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your most recent stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. I personally helped you on the phone when you called to find you and your sisters reservation. I do remember searching for the reservation prior to your arrival and insuring that we were able to charge your sisters reservation to your credit card,as per your request. The hotel did change the reservation to your sisters name, in hopes that we could supply a more smooth and easy check in process for her. I'm sorry to hear that the process was not up to your expectations. I find it to be very important to respond and reflect on guests experiences weather positive or negative. Being sensitive to guest needs and views is an important quality in customer service. In the above review you used a derogatory term when describing a " small person". You used the word "midget". This is a very offensive term for someone who is much smaller than average. Being sensitive to all persons is an important quality. We will certainly take note of many of your comments and address them with our staff members.

"Like sleeping in a Museum"

geladeee, Kentfield, California 08/02/2018

I stayed here for 2 nights originally because it was close to my son's new apartment. But I was so presently surprised by the quality of the staff and facility I would definitely recommend. I loved the photos and Hollywood memorabilia all over the walls. Also the Mini Bar is super cool and Cafe 101 retro chic. Looking forward to my next visit

"Perfect location"

User 30/01/2018

We couldn't be happier with this hotel. Large beds, perfect location and the cafe make food that is to die for! The service upon arrival was excellent, Brian was friendly and made sure we knew we could ask him for any help we may need. It's a short walk to Hollywood Blvd, there are convenience stores nearby and it's a short walk from the Flyaway bus stop if you're coming from LAX. We stayed on the fourth floor and the wifi was perfect. We're planning a trip to the U.S again next year and will be sure to book this hotel early so we don't miss out on a room.

"Absolutely Amazing! I almost cried"

Sunshine33Wigan, Wigan 26/01/2018

After experiencing the worst 4 days at Hotel Rex, San Francisco . I finally arrived at this hotel - to which i would spent the final 4 days of my trip. OMG! It was simply breathe take . I cried. I had been so distressed about my San Francisco trip. This was like a god send. It was amazing beyond worst. Very Classy , Very Chic. The theme of the hotel was Classic American Movie stars . The Rooms was absolutely amazing , clear , very modern . The Staff was impeccable, helpful and polite. I wish i had vacated here. The only down fall is local amenities like take outs . If you do not drive it is a trek , but I will certainly recommend it

"Budget, Family friendly place. "

Kiran K, Bengaluru, India 25/01/2018

Has a motel type setup upfront. However, check in was smooth and efficient, but slightly impersonal. Rooms are slightly dated and small but good enough if you plan to be out sightseeing through the day. Walkable to Hollywood Walk of Fame and close to Griffith Observatory. The 101 Cafe in the building is a good place for coffee and food. Did not get a chance to try the in house bar. Recommended as a base for Hollywood sight seeing.

"Amazing location"

Christina R, Montreal, Canada 23/01/2018

It was close to everything, the location itself is enough to give it 4 stars. But the room was also clean, comfy bed and cozy. Staff was really helpful. It was a bit noisy at nigh, the window in the bathroom didnt close properly so we could hear people outside. There was also noise coming from either the fridge or the vending machine outside but we didn't go to LA to sleep. It wouldn't stop me from going back to that hotel. Reasonable price and nice neighborhood

"Great for Hollywood & Universal"

David D, Helensvale, Australia 21/01/2018

We stayed for 5 nights at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills in late November, and I can confidently say it served it's purpose for us. It was a great location, really close to the Walk of fame, Chinese Theatre etc. A big positive for us was the location to Universal Hollywood, we went for the day and was a cheap $6.00 uber ride, so we could enjoy a few drinks and Universal City Walk. The memorabilia on the walls is a nice touch, and tried to read most of them. Easy access to the motorway for wherever you need to go driving wise, took us around 55 mins to Disney. Only minor issue for us was the restaurant is more like a diner, food was okay but not outstanding, but the little bar was great. Our room was good enough for the 5 nights we were there and reasonably well kept, bathroom a great size. All in all a great stay for us in LA. Thanks

"Very confortable"

User 17/01/2018

Confortable room, spacious bathroom. We stayed for 4 nights. There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel. Great location, about 10 minutes walk to the metro/bus. Quick check-in! Free wifi and there is also a computer for guests

"A little gem"

User 17/01/2018

Literally close to everything. Metro and buses within 5 min walk. Shops 5-10 min, you're pretty much on Hollywood Blvd. Lovely and helpful staff, Joseph was amazing. Clean rooms, vending machines, onsite laundry, late night bar, amazing diner co-located downstairs. Movie star memorabilia throughout, really gives the hotel a cared for pride. I'll definitely be recommending to family and friends. I travelled with a friend, but will stay here comfortably as a single female traveller

"Very Friendly Staff"

jmason15, Ipswich, Australia 15/01/2018

Central to most things, only a short walk down town to get on the subway or another option is the Metro bus line that took us to Santa Monica Pier, plenty to see and do, the Hotel was cleaned daily and Derrick on the front desk was very helpful, giving us maps and directions that were easy to understand, would highly recommend this hotel, it also has a Restaurant.

"Gorgeous villa in Hollywood"

Steven Z, Poway, United States 09/01/2018

It is rare for me to write a review--- most Best Westerns are pleasant & clean but do not "wow" me (in other words, just a place to rest & then hit the road). This property is a gem & definitely deserves its Plus rating. The rooms are lovely & well appointed. But the outdoor gardens are truly amazing; it felt like we were back at a villa we visited in Venice, Italy last year (but better since this hotel is closer!!!). Great find.

"Unique Hollywood Kitsch"

okimmigrant, Oklahoma 07/01/2018

We stayed at this BestWestern Plus to be close to the Griffith Observatory. We were getting in late, and wanted to be able to see Griffith before they closed. So with traffic we chose this hotel over the Best Western Plus on Sunset Blvd because of proximity. The building is unique and does not look like the standard cookie-cutter BWP hotels around. There is a parking garage that is Valet-only. The decor of the hotel appears to be someone's extensive private Hollywood / Movie memorabilia collection, which covers all of the walls of the lobby, corridors, and rooms. It was kind of cool in an interesting way, but definitely kitschy, which is somewhat expected in many Hollywood hotels. There was no complimentary breakfast, but there is an attached restaurant where you can pickup a good cooked cafe style mean for $30 (for two people). Fresh squeezed orange and apple juices. Neighborhoods can be hit-or-miss in the Hollywood area, but this hotel is in a good area of town. We felt safe. Felt that it was a bit expensive, especially including the hotel charges, parking, and breakfast. We spent well over $200 for one night stay. Check around for better values, but overall a decent place.

"Fab little Gem in Hollywood"

Fairyfairhurst2014, Wokingham, United Kingdom 04/01/2018

This hotel is a fab find. A 10 minute walk to Hollywood Boulevard and close to Griffith Observatory, Hollywood Sign, Universal and Warner Bros studios. The 101 coffee shop is excellent as is the onsite bar called mini bar. There are some excellent restaurants such as Franklin and Company down the road. Staff good, rooms spacious and clean. I can not fault this hotel and hope to come back one day.

"Good Bar in a Best Western"

Max G, Los Angeles, California 30/12/2017

I've been to Minibar a few times for spirit tastings offered by K&L, but had never come for drinks. They have a well-curated variety of premium spirits and bartenders who know how to mix them. We had Manhattans with Dad's Hat Rye and Antica Formula vermouth. This is not a place that has a bar scene. It's more a place to visit with friends and enjoy a cocktail. We will be back.

"Great Hotel in convenient location"

andymerritt, Melbourne, Australia 30/12/2017

Hotel has an old feel but is in great condition. Rooms are fresh and very well finished. The pool looked nice and clean but it was too cold to swim (December). Cafe downstairs fantastic and seemed to have a bit of everything. Was a bit surprised the kitchenette didn't have any cutlery or crockery and not toaster. It did have a microwave though.

"Great hotel for the price "

Kovilan_Naidoo, Johannesburg, South Africa 29/12/2017

The hotel is great for a trip to Hollywood, it's a short walk away from the walk for fame, Hollywood boulevard, subway station and a hop on hop off bus stop. Check in was smooth and efficient, the room itself is basic but clean and hygienic. I'd say it's more of a four star hotel rather than 3. The bathroom was huge! It had two basins all the regular amenities one would expect from a hotel. Good, clean and tidy as well. There is an on-site restaurant, cafe 101, which has amazing diner style food. We had breakfast there daily. All in all I would recommend this hotel, it's affordable and in a pretty good location.

"Unique & Clean"

cjmomx2, Oceanside, CA 28/12/2017

We were only there for 13 hours and never got to see it in the daylight, but really did like what we saw. I can only imagine how much time and effort has been put into the upkeep and decor. The room was simple and clean. It had everything we needed. The shower even had 2 shower heads... one on each wall! The area can appear a bit scary at night (Welcome to Hollywood) so we were glad to eat at the restaurant attached to the property. The food was good and very convenient, but for the prices, the portions seem small. Total for 4 people (2 adults and 2 teens - 4 mid priced meals, 3 sodas and 1 dessert) including tip was $92. (Welcome to Hollywood). It was the perfect place to rest between seeing a play one day and hiking the Hollywood sign the next morning.

"Comfortable and clean hotel "

AliH1993, Brisbane, Australia 27/12/2017

Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were also good with showers (no bath). We checked in after a huge flight from Australia and fell asleep during the day very soon after, only to be woken up by a maid who used her own key to open our room, which at this point we were so tired we let her in, later when we woke up we saw that she had put up our shower curtain in the bathroom. We didn't mind this, but did think it was a bit weird she just walked in to our room as we laid in bed half asleep? But life goes on and I get she was just doing her job. We enjoyed the Hollywood 101 diner downstairs and ate their regularly. The hotel also has a washing machine and dryer within the hotel that you can use, just make sure you have plenty of quarters ($2 per wash and $2 per dry, quarters only) Comfortable hotel which served its purpose for our stay in LA.

"Nice quiet hotel"

scorpina, Singapore, Singapore 25/12/2017

"Great stay"

User 19/12/2017

Arrived early but as the room was available they let us check-in which was great. Arranged a sight-seeing trip at reception which was convenient and priced well. The room and bathroom were big with a comfortable bed and the in-room tea/coffee making facilities were great. It was a good location with easy access to all the sights we wanted to see. The only issue was that they placed a hold on my card in error and the amount still hasn't been released.

"Very good"

Nishad16, Melbourne, Australia 18/12/2017

We stayed at the BW from 11th-14th December. We were very lucky as we were allowed to check in early...thank you for that. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Room and bathroom were both very spacious and clean. This place is close to the Walk of fame - about 7 minutes walk, uber drive to Universal Studios - about 10 minutes, walking distance to Hollywood blvd, about a 10 mins drive to Griffith Observatory, where you can also get the best view of the HOLLYWOOD sign from there. The location is amazing...I would definitely recommend staying here.

All feed back is important, I'm not sure we can do much about the levels of water in the commode? Is it true, south of the equator the toilet water rotates in the opposite direction? Inquiring minds..... Great to hear you had a wonderful Honeymoon! Please come and visit us on an Anniversary! Happy Holidays!

"Poor Quality Hotel"

Mike S, Palm Springs, United States 14/12/2017

This hotel is very out dated. Air conditioner and TV remote did not work. Bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. At check out the associate was not going to give me a receipt until I asked for the manager. He seem new.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good Morning, Hope you had a great time at Hamilton! I'm sorry the room was not up to your expectations, I was actually the person that checked you into the hotel. The location of the room your were in is not my favorite location in the hotel. I was trying to accommodate you and your group with an early check in. We really always want to exceed our guest expectation. I will be adding points to your Best Western account this week! I hope you give us another try! Happy Holidays

"Great Gem in LA"

Sheryl W, Hamilton New Zealand 10/12/2017

Best Western Hollywood Hills is a great place to base yourself for your LA vacation if you want to be close to everything. 5 Minute walk to Hollywood Bvd and the stars walk. Here you can also catch the Metro to anywhere - North, West, East and South. $1.75USD will take you anywhere. We went to Universal Studios, Santa Monica, Downtown LA and even Disneyland using the Metro from Hollywood Bvd. The hotel was clean and quiet. Rubbish trucks seem to start real early so if you have your windows open, you will be woken at around 5.30am. Staff were very helpful. On checking in they told us where most conveniences were and how far most things were. The told us how to use the Metro - saved us heaps of money in getting around.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Your so correct, the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel is near everything. Well its not near, Paris or Rome but it is near Universal Studio's 3 miles away and most of the other studios are no farther than 15 minute drive. Please come back and visit us soon!

"Great family experience"

ski2017112, Flagstaff, Arizona 06/12/2017

We enjoyed the Hollywood decor of the Hotel. It is located walking distance to Hollywood Blvd. and a short drive to Universal Studios.Great location and clean. Would recommend this to families traveling to Universal Studios.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for the response on Trip Adviser . Being that Universal Studios is so near the hotel along with Hollywood Blvd the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills is a perfect central location for visitors. Have a great holiday!

"Hollywood Hills"

mrsdeno23, Long Beach, California 02/12/2017

Great location, safe, comfy beds, nice and helpful staff. Great coffee shop attached-101 Coffee Shop. Close to Universal Studios, Hollywood and downtown attractions. Easy to access an uber to many locations.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Great to hear you were able to eat at the 101 Coffee shop! The 101 Coffee shop has been a local hangout for years. The current owners of the hotel originally operated the location since 1944! Have a wonderful Holiday Season!

"Good room"

Ladybarra, Ramsgate Kent 27/11/2017

Good room the John Wayne room, 1st floor fairly close to the road so road noise. But room spacious & well maintained. Reception efficient at check in. To park it's $20 a day but didn't see anywhere else to park. Breakfast can be taken at a charge in the restaurant. There is also a bar, they helped out as my corkscrew broke , so uncorked my wine...thankyou for helping. It's a short 10 min walk to Hollywood boulevard. I would say the 'rough' end , I wouldn't be comfortable to walk there at night. But the hotel itself is fine & served the purpose of an overnighter

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
So " Pilgrim" you liked my room? Here at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel we are in the midst of changing some of the rooms to Theme rooms. As in the one you stayed at was the John Wayne room, soon well have all sorts of movie themed rooms. Have a great Holiday!

"Excellent Choice"

User 26/11/2017

After searching through lots of options in LA area we decided to expend more money by booking this hotel. Best decision ever. Hotel is a walking distance from Walk of Fame, Chinese Theater, Hard Rock Cafe and quite close to Universal Studios and Warner Studios Tour. It was a bit difficult to find the hotel at first because it does not look like a typical Best Western. Hotel decoration goes back to golden cinema years with lots of pictures and autographs on the walls. The room follows the same pattern with a nice mix with modern appliances. Amenities offered are the usual ones. Check-in staff was a little edgy at first (he was dealing with some leaking in a room), but was polite, helpful and his "behavior" improved by the end of the check-in. We had a problem on the bathroom door (we manage to lock the door from outside), but maintenance staff solve it very quickly. There is a cafe annexed to the hotel, 101 Coffee Shop. Food is good, but we thought it was a bit expensive.

"A little retro hideout"

Kim P, Las Vegas, Nevada, Usa 23/11/2017

We love staying at the Hollywood Hills Hotel. In spite of the age, this place is well maintained and kept very clean. The celebrity décor is really fun. The rooms are very nice with a big double shower in the rooms we have had. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. the Café 101 downstairs has great food late into the night if you are hungry. Conveniently located, you just have to get used to the smaller streets and the traffic. Can't wait to go back again.

"A good choice"

Harvey W, Christchurch, New Zealand 18/11/2017

I have stayed here before. My room was clean and the bed was big and comfortable. It is close to the Flyaway Shuttle stop, LA Metro, and Hollywood Boulevard if you want to be a tourist. If you don't want to be a tourist there are two good bars east along Franklin Ave (Birds, and Franklin and Company), and an excellent supermarket (Gelson's). These are 5 minutes walk away.

"Perfect place to stay for Hamilton attendees!"

Katie400, Germantown, Tennessee 14/11/2017

Checked in the day of the performance and the polite and helpful check in staff gave us a map of places we could walk to... Hollywood and Vine, The Pantages, Grauman's Chinese Theater, even a great grocery store! Once we parked with the valet we didn't need out car or Uber. Would have loved more time to look at the amazing collection of photos and autographs that lined the hotel halls. The room was comfortable and quiet ins spite of facing the street. Next time we will stay longer so we can enjoy this very cool Hollywood hotel.

"Hollywood Lights"

mhx1337, Bratislava, Slovakia 13/11/2017

Highly recommend if you want to be close to everything in Hollywood. Just 5 minutes walk from Hollywood Walk of Fame and Hollywood Vine Metro station. Rooms are good sized and have all the amenities. Bed was comfortable. Really nice decor with photos of old Hollywood legends. Loved seeing all the memorabilia. I used valet parking and worth it. Attendant was nice! Would definitely stay at this location again. Thank you BWHH.

"Comfortable hotel"

TwoPigeons, Halifax, United Kingdom 10/11/2017

We had a large room which was very comfortable. It was a very quiet hotel at night. We found the staff to be very helpful and were prepared to 'go the extra mile' to assist. They also booked us a tour. The underground station is about 5 minutes walk. You can catch a bus to the airport nearby. I would recommend that if you arrive at night, that you take a taxi from the station as we did not feel safe in the surrounding area when it was dark. I would recommend a nearby restaurant called 'Thai Pepper' which is on the same road for an inexpensive but delicious meal in the evenings.

"Wish I had more time"

F743RYnadineb, SAN DIEGO, United States 08/11/2017

I found this hotel on line. I selected it for it's location to an event I was attending. I had no idea what to expect. To my surprise it was a very quaint hotel. The room was nice, cute little kitchenette, spacious bathroom and the bed was so comfortable. The memorabilia on the walls of the hotel and in the room took me on a journey of my childhood. I definitely plan on staying again.

"Good place to hollywood"

BJNugraha, Bali, Indonesia 07/11/2017

It is good hotel, friendly staff( one of hotel front office help and treat us so well) if you want to hollywood boulevard its not so far might take 10 minutes walk, 7 minutes to capitol building.supermarket not so far. Their 101 coffee shop is well known in hollywood, some star's have their breakfast/ lunch there.

"Location "

User 06/11/2017

The location sold this for us. It's perfect. Pretty average hotel, clean and good facilities. Really comfy bed!! The pool is cold, but it was peaceful most of the time, so even nice just to lay down and relax.

"Great Stay"

Alicia R, Perth, Australia 05/11/2017

The hotel was in a good location, the rooms are really clean. The lobby was modern. Would highly recommend this spot if you are wanting close access to Hollywood boulevard. Was thoroughly happy with our stay.

"Retro fun"

RickandDoni, Sooke, Canada 04/11/2017

Staying here is like a trip down movie memory lane with iconic photos of stars from all eras. Location is convenient to Hollywood landmarks and, depending on where you are, you can get a view of the Hollywood sign on the hill. The diner on the property has great food and is local hipster hangout. The little bar onsite attracts a fun crowd as well. Love the old fashioned motel-style layout with each room having its own entrance around the pool. They have done a great job of preserving this and keeping things nice.

"Central to attractions "

luv_to_travel_more, cumbria 01/11/2017

Lovely clean hotel very near to Hollywood and sunset boulevards. Friendly helpful reception staff. Diner 101 very good quality and reasonable for breakfast. Would have been 5 stars but for prices charged in hotel bar

"Ants in the bathroom"

A9569AFdavidl, Arlington, United States 01/11/2017

There were ants in the bathroom. Yuck. Also, the soda/water machine on the 2nd floor didn't accept dollar bills, the machine on the 3rd floor was only for Red Bull, and there was no machine on the 4th floor. Had to go to the soda machine in the lobby to get a bottled water.

"Great hotel"

User 01/11/2017

V helpful staff helped me find a quieter room as first one was near freeway. Warm pool. Only negative the pool had piped music all day which i could hear in my room. Character hotel full of movie pictures.

"Great hotel excellent staff"

ryanb101, Leicester, United Kingdom 26/10/2017

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst on my road trip visiting LA. The hotel was great had everything I needed good parking with a valet. The front deck went above and beyond to help us. Its in an ideal location about a 10 minute walk to the walk of fame. We booked one of the tours through the hotel and it was really good and well worth the money. Breakfast was good and pretty cheap would defiantly stop again.

"A Nostalgic Taste of The Golden Age "

Pale_Blue_Dot_85, Glasgow, United Kingdom 24/10/2017

I stayed at this hotel for just over a week, when visiting Los Angeles from Scotland, back in April of this year. Without a doubt, this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The hotel is only a short walk away from Griffith Park, Hollywood Walk and a short uber drive to Universal Studios & Warner Bros. The reception staff were very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I liked that the staff would greet me, when passing by and offer great service to their customers. The hotel has an appreciation for cinema (which for a movie buff, is always appreciated), with their chic golden age murals and classic movie quotes. It gives a wonderful idea of what it would have been like to stay at the hotel in the 1930/40's while maintaining up to date essentials (free WiFi, outdoor pool). The hotel offers a restaurant, and is in close proximity to other eateries (and a short walk to a supermarket). The rooms are clean, very comfy and are decorated with classic Hollywood photographs on the walls - I like this because it gives a feeling of being at home, rather than on vacation. The rooms have all necessities (iron, hairdryer, fridge etc). If you really want a Hollywood experience, when visiting Los Angeles, this is the hotel for you. Stand outside, look around you and you'll know you've found the perfect place. As the ‘Blade Runner' quote emended in the parking lot says, ‘I'm surprised you didn't come here sooner'. Well, should I ever have the pleasure to visit La La Land again, I'll definitely be back. Until then, I guess I'll see you in the movies.

The hotel staff was excellent with all their guests. very helpful, went out of their way for any questions. Very willing to help. Location excellent. The cost perfect for family. Was clean. Any concerns was quickly resolved. It was the best place my family and I had stayed in years. The rooms were great, hotel very accommodating to meet each guests needs.

"well located, standard hotel"

This hotel is well located near Griffith Observatory, universal studios, hollywood Boulevard. Rooms are standard, staff very helpful, we got new room immediately when TV did not work. Nice little pool and easy valet parking.

"Best Western Hollywood"

Deirdre W, Melbourne, Australia 12/10/2017

This was a fantastic hotel. The room was fabulous with a kitchenette,comfortable beds and clean and pleasant surrounds. The staff booked tickets for the hop on hop off bus and disneyland for us The amentities included the cafe which we did not go to,a small bar,laundry to do your washing with a vending machine that offered a small selection of snacks and essentials such as toothpaste,deodarant and the like there was also a coke machine and a atm.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
So glad you had such a good time in Hollywood! Being that the weather is so good in LA most days, using the Hop On Hop off bus is a great way to see the city. With the open air bus that picks you just a few blocks from the hotel on Hollywood Blvd you can transfer on the Hop on Hop off to go all the way to the beach. Please let us know if we can be of further service to you . Thanks again!

"Weekend fun"

jsehm2015, Long Beach, California 02/10/2017

Super clean, modern, and lovely hotel. Convenient to everything. We went out in Hollywood that same night and it was less than a mile or two away from everything. During the day we checked out sunset and walked around the streets. You could also see the Hollywood sign from the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Fun in Hollywood! Thank you for the great review! The Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel is directly in front of the Hollywood Sign. You can have Breakfast in the 101 Coffee shop in the hotel and walk right out and be under the Hollywood Sign. What better way to wake up everyday and enjoy a typical 85 degree day in Hollywood.

"Great Location & Great Staff"

PMIRE2012, Dublin, Ireland 02/10/2017

We stayed here for just under a week. The hotel is perfectly placed just a short walk from the hall of fame. We used Uber to get to all the attractions from the hotel as our base. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly. Extra towels etc were never a problem and staff on the front desk always said hello as we came and went. The rooms are a good size with a large bathroom also. We had breakfast each morning at the hotel and there was a great choice of freshly cooked options. Close to the Hollywood sign you can see it clearly from a block away.Would highly recommend this hotel.

"Perfect location / great place"

DICKSONS2011, Doncaster, United Kingdom 30/09/2017

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it was the perfect location for most of the main sights. It's a ten/fifteen min walk to Hollywood boulevard and sunset. I felt very safe walking around. The subway station is also only a ten minute walk. The hotel staff were brilliant, so friendly and helpful. Even the car parking staff were so nice and helpful. They gave us an overview of all the areas and also the best way to get around. The rooms were spacious and very quiet at night. Cafe 101 was just downstairs that has great food, not cheap but the food was really lovely, may also see a famous person like we did.

"Great Staff"

subienz, Melbourne, Australia 29/09/2017

We stayed here twice on our recent trip to the USA, the hotel is located a couple blocks back from Hollywood Blvd and within walking distance. Views of the Hollywood sign can be seen by a nearby street. The hotel staff are very friendly welcoming and accommodating to customer needs. The rooms are a little dated but very comfortable and clean. The pool is great as is the attached cafe for great breaky, lunch and dinner. Would definitely recommend and will stay again if ever in the Hollywood vicinity again. I can also recommend a Thai restaurant just down from the hotel called Thai Pepper Restaurant, which is less than a mintue away, whilst it doesn't look much from the outside, the food and service were spot on!

"Hollywood Lights"

Mary Louise B, San Bernardino, United States 25/09/2017

If you enjoy being close to it all but not in the center of all the chaos, this Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel is your choice! With a diner style restaurant at the ready and a bar to quench your thirst you won't have to leave the premises before taking off on a Hollywood adventure. Did I mentioned the pool in the middle of the inner court area or the fact that you are within walking distance from the Pantages Theater and restaurants on the same street side of the hotel? This is a gem!!! Mary B

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Mary B, Your a Gem! Thank you for the great feed back on the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel! We did just remodeled the pool area you mentioned in your review, more seating area around the pool with new decking and a glass fence. Many guest love to stay here while they attend events at the Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theater and as you mentioned the Pantages Theater where at this time Hamilton is currently playing. Hope to see you soon!

"Fantastic Hotel! "

User 15/09/2017

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was incredibly spacious and clean, with two double beds and a double shower. We didn't have any issues with noise but our room was at the back of the hotel, I can imagine if you stay at the front of the hotel it could be noisy due to the main road. We could see the Hollywood sign from our bathroom window! The pool area was great and the sun loungers were lovely to relax on after a day of exploring LA. The restaurant 101 downstairs had fantastic breakfasts and great service, and the hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location, we walked to the Walk Of Fame, Chinese Theatre, and the Griffith Observatory is about a 15 minute drive away. Valet people were lovely. Would definitely stay here again.

Welcome to Hollywood, "Champagne whishes and caviar Dreams" the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous......

Thank you for taking the time to give such great feedback.....

"Pretty nice"

User 04/09/2017

Hotel was nice, individual doors like a motel. Clean room, friendly staff. There was no bathroom fan so humidity was ridiculous after showering. Very noisy at 5am, housekeeping rolling their carts on the tiled corridors.

Good Morning! Thank you for the review. We do have interior corridors and exterior corridors at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills. I will make sure we discuss with our associates the importance to remember guests are on the other side of the door especially early in the morning. Please let us know next time your in town and we would love to have you stay in the side with interior corridors.

Big and Clean ......sounds great.... I'm really happy that you enjoyed our rooms so much. The 101 Coffee Shop typically will have a different soup everyday. Hope the rest of your trip goes well. Yes , I did not talk about the comment about the lobby. But as you would think that would not be the perfered smell in our lobby.

"Nice room but too noisy!"

Fabienne B, Sawbridgeworth, England, United Kingdom 18/08/2017

Staying at the Best Western Hollywood Hills with my family for 4 nights, but unfortunately the room is next to a very busy road and it's very very noisy even with the widow shut! Shame considering the price of the room. Also the swimming pool is not heated therefore too cold to use especially in the morning. You may want to look at other hotels...there is so many here it shouldn't be a problem.

"Not a bad location"

trill_1, Bradford 11/08/2017

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of out 3 week California trip, its close to the stars strip, the area is a little "seedy", but to be honest , most of the area is close to the Chinese theater. The rooms are fine, not the Hilton, but then again, not Hilton prices. Parking is $20 per / night. There is a really good supermarket only two blocks away, ideal for any supplies req. Easy distance to walk down to the stars strip(10-15 mins). In short, i would recommend it and would stay again

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Welcome to Hollywood. Thank you so much for the review of the Area surrounding the hotel. Being that the hotel is directly below the Iconic Hollywood sign , you can't be more in Hollywood when you stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel Hollywood Blvd is just a few easy walking blocks from the front door of the hotel. Many of the sidewalks were closed due to some High end living spaces being built in the area. So nice to hear our front desk was able to refer you to the local shopping market just two blocks from the hotel. have a great time on the rest of your journey!

So you went for a swim! The Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel just renovated the pool area. We have updated the area with glass fencing and enlarging the pool area itself. This will give our guest better access to the pool area and access to the sun with more pool side seating. Thank you for taking the time to provide great feedback to our newest area for our guests.


Mandy G, Grimsby, United Kingdom 25/07/2017

We have recently visited LA and stayed at this hotel. First impressions were it is in need of some TLC. It was very dated and although it is a film themed hotel it is need of an update. We asked for an upgrade which we got but I wondered what our original room looked like. The air con unit sounded like a plane was about yo land it was so loud . we had to turn it off at night to sleep. The beds were clean and the bathroom adequate for our needs. The pool area was really nice , we had the pool to ourselves one afternoon which was great. The foyer area of the hotel had a really horrible smell which you could sense as soon as you walked in, it wasn't nice. The staff were helpful apart from the night porter who barely spoke when we checked out. There are no safes in the hotel but there were safety deposit boxes at reception. We were only Here for three days so it was OK for the amount of time we spent but not sure if I would stay here again.

Good afternoon! Really important feedback for our 1948 hotel. The Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel has a long history with movie stars staying in the hotel and also dining in our 101 Coffee shop. Often having an older hotel our remodeling efforts need to stay in the essence of the original bones of the hotel. This year we will be remolding many of the rooms, if you happen to look on line your able to see our newest remolding themed room , The John Wayne room. Hopefully next time your in Hollywood your'll give us another chance .

"Truly wonderful staff"

Babsrees, Neath 16/07/2017

We stayed here last week for four nights. Every member of staff we met could not have been more pleasant or helpful. The room was large and well-equipped and very clean and comfortable with a huge bed and massive bathroom. The location of the hotel is very good also, and within a 10 minute walking distance of Hollywood Boulevard. We could even seen the 'Hollywood' sign from our bedroom window.

"great place to base yourself in LA"

User 08/07/2017

Lovely boutique hotel with a great sense of Hollywood history. Clean and very comfortable rooms. A short walk under 10 mins to Hollywood Boulevard and some great shopping. The hotel is close to public transport and is also a drop of for many of the bus tours that operate. Starline Tours picked us up from the hotel, transported us to the depot and from there to Universal Studios and Warner Bros tours... Great Central location ... There is a great American Diner at the entrance to the Hotel "Cafe 101". If you're after great diner food and a possible Celebrity spotting than this is the place for you. We had checked in immediately from the airport and the helpful staff got us into our room early. We went straight for a coffee after a long flight from Australia, were seated in the cafe and no more than 5 mins Eva Longoria comes in for Breakfast with the family...

"Loved it!!"

User 06/07/2017

Loved the old Hollywood feel of this hotel! The staff was excellent and the coffee shop attached was awesome! Close to everything! We will definitely be back when we are back in Hollywood with our kids this time!!

"Classic and convenient"

Nancy L, Albany, New York 05/07/2017

This hotel is in a very convenient location for touring Hollywood but away from the really crowded area. It features classic old kitschy colors and decor but with an updated modern feel. Valet parking is easy and helpful. Only downside for us was the pool being closed for no apparent reason the whole time we were there. Disappointing because we could have used a dip after a long day and you can see the pool from every room so it's a tease when it is closed. Also, all noise outside can be heard.

"Cute hotel"

Tamara M, La Mesa, California 26/06/2017

Would definitely recommend if you want to be close to everything in Hollywood. Walking distance to everything. Room was spacious and clean. Decore very cool. Bed was comfortable. Loved seeing all the memorabilia.

"Nice place for family"

HN2606, Henderson, Nevada 25/06/2017

Nice, simple, clean room, bathroom for family. Comfortable beds. Courteous, helpful staff. All room balconies face the outdoor pool which is on the first floor. We stayed on the 3rd floor and inside our room, we could not hear any noise from pool area. Restaurant serving American food next to lobby is a convenience. Valet parking available. Nice location. It's a few minutes walk to Capitol Records, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Blvd and some Hollywood tourist spots. It's 5 minutes by car to Universal Studios. We would stay here again and we recommend this hotel to others. Note: As you walk, especially for visiting families with kids, please be aware of many homeless people on the streets.

"Nice hotel"

User 23/06/2017

The hotel is located close to some of hollywood main attractions. The room was very nice including very nice bath room. There is no safe in the room , and if you have value things that you want to put in a safe there is a safe next to the concierge. Parking is very easy and comfort. The parking price is fair. Breakfast in the restaurantto the hotel were nice with fair prices. The elevators are small . There is disturbing smell in the lobby between the parking/ valet area and the concierge desk .

Stayed for two nights and the first thing I noticed when walking into the hotel was the smell from the toilets, I think there was a plumbing issue which they were dealing with, it was gone by the second night. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was really nice. The staff were friendly and very helpful in booking a disneyland tour for me. There is also a little restaurant connected to the hotel which was so convenient. The only thing I would change is that there is a smoking area right near the elevator and stairs so when you are coming down or going up to your room and someone is smoking you walk through a bunch of smoke.

"Nice little hotel in great location"

Andrew M, Perth, Australia 18/06/2017

Very happy with the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills. We arrived very early into LAX from Melbourne and we arrived at the hotel around 930am. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Contacted housekeeping and asked them to get 2 room ready ASAP. We went and grabbed a coffee from the onsite café and the rooms were ready within 1hr. Rooms were big and clean, beds were comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a big bathroom. Walked to Hollywood Blvd in 5 minutes and in the other direction there was a supermarket and 3/4 bars and cafes. Location is excellent.

"Very nice hotel"

Taltul29, Jerusalem District, Israel 16/06/2017

First of all, it's perfectly located, 5 minutes walk from Hollywood boulevard. The decor was not to our taste with pictures of Hollywood stars all over, but I guess that's part of being close to Hollywood.

"3 night stay"

User 12/06/2017

Some members of staff let this place down. Not helpful at all when we asked for help in booking transfer. I don't think we were the only ones he didn't help. The one with the hair is how he was described by many who had less than glowing things to say about him. Good restaurant attached Cafe 101. Wasn't too far to walk to L.A.. hotel room clean and comfortable.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good morning! I hope you were able to find a transfer. I'm really sorry for our staff's actions or more of the less actions. I really think your review is very important to our Business. As a hotel Manager this is a great example that one of the most important responsibilities that a business has is to take care of there clients. Our hotel can be great but if our service fails the hotel fails. I hope your able to give us another try, and will try to exceed your expectations, Even the people " with the Hair" . thank you,

michaelcN2494KK, honolulu, United States 07/06/2017

good location, slight room odor, good size room. broken locks on windows. i would have them deodorize room, probably the carpets. also fix the broken window locks. a very serious security concern for wife.

"Didn't Believe This Was A Best Western"

Jordan D, Ventura, California, United States 04/06/2017

My husband and I booked this hotel due to the proximity to the Pantages. I've stayed at the W (across the street from The Pantages) and it wasn't that nice and was super expensive, so this was our best option, although I was skeptical at first. When we arrived at the hotel, my husband thought we were in the wrong place, it was THAT NICE! Our room was themed as the "John Wayne Room" but not cheesy, super classy and well done. Bed was super comfy, bathroom was large and the little kitchenette was great. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Also there is a diner at the hotel that stays open until 3:00AM so in case you stumble home, you can grab a late night snack :)

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you so much! I really applicate the time you have taken to write a review of the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. The John Wayne Room is one of our "theme" rooms that we are now remolding. We soon will have a Marilyn Monroe room, Beatles room, Sunset Rock and Roll room, Ect....we will have so many different rooms. please let us know the next time your in town. thanks again,

"Great location "

Gloria M, Brisbane, Australia 24/05/2017

Located just a short distance from high way one. Not far from Hollywood boulevard and walk of fame. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Floor tiles were very slippery when wet so be careful and lay towels down when you get out of shower. The hotel diner was amazing and the food was delicious. Didn't really like the mini bar, too small and very noisy and felt a little unwelcoming, we didn't stay we left and went up the road to other bars.

"Lovely hotel in great location. "

nb5555, Melbourne, Australia 21/05/2017

We just stayed here and had a great stay. Really nice decor and feel at this hotel. Nice Hollywood feel without being over the top. Felt very welcome on check in and all the staff were very helpful during our stay. Rooms set out around a pool which was nicely done. Had a swim a couple of mornings and pool not too cold. I never got the opportunity to but coming back from a day of sight seeing would be nice to relax in the pool. Rooms were spacious, clean and well presented. Well serviced each day too. Location was perfect as 10 minute walk to Hollywood Blvd. Close but away from hustle and bustle. Can get to Venice Beach or Santa Monica by bus or train from here pretty easily with help from Metro trip planner. $35 uber ride to and from LAX. $10 uber ride to The Grove which is worth a visit. Celebs shop there. Nice cafe attached to hotel too and late operating hours are great. Overall a wonderful stay here and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Hollywood. Will definitely stay here again.

"Stop over "

Sara S, London, England, United Kingdom 17/05/2017

At last minute I needed a reasonable hotel that wasn't gloomy. For this budget I often feel unhappy cos it's basic, not here. Hip, interesting design, nice guests amazing diner, best of all five star service from front desk. Without exception the staff were kind and helpful. Rooms large and clean. Design really groovy and hip This will forever be my go to for reasonable prices hotel in LA

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you ! I hope we are hip, and non-gloomy.

"Clean, comfy, easy"

Jamie-Emma M, London, England, United Kingdom 15/05/2017

Super comfortable huge room that had a fridge and kitchen area as well as a huge bathroom and 2 very comfortable double beds. Staff friendly and helpful. Pool to catch some afternoon rays was an absolute plus. Recommend!

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
So You've seen our new pool area?!?! yes we have just renovated our pool area in April of 2017. We made the area larger for our guest to have a more enjoyable time in the California sun! thanks for the review.

"5 weeks in the USA"

Joanne E, Adelaide, Australia 15/05/2017

I will start with the pros: room was clean. Cafe downstairs was nice. Now the cons: if you go to check in and they try to give you room 211 run for the hills. View out the window is a brick wall. Door is opposite the stairwell, used all day and night. Right next door is the lift, used all day and night! If you look down from the window you will see the car park, where the smokers gather, all day and night. I have never stayed in a noisier hotel. Thank god for earplugs... I also found the staff to be quite standoffish.. not rude, just not very friendly. Just about to check out, can't do it quick enough really!!

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the time you have taken to review room 211 and our associates. I'm really disappointed that our staff was not able to make a great connection, so you would feel that we would be happy to move you to a room that would more accommodating to your needs. Being that you were with us for 5 nights, I also would be upset if I received the same type of experience you received. We will always looking to improve our customer service in creating a perfect experience for each guest. I hope you have a safe trip home.

"Great Hollywood hideaway"

User 10/05/2017

Stayed here for a few days recently and had a wonderful experience. When we arrived, the pool was undergoing maintenance and could not be used. Before we could complaint, the staff more than made up for this including giving us some breakfast vouchers at the attached Cafe 101. Wonderful place as well. We stayed in the Al Pacino room and had a view of the Hollywood sign. The room was big, clean and quite comfortable. The location is great as well, Within walking distance to the major attractions and easily driveable to others. We especially liked that we could get there several different ways if we encountered traffic along a particular route - which you will most likely do. All in all, I would stay there again and hoping to do so soon. Thanks Max and staff!

"Fabulous!! "

Rakfay, Liverpool, United Kingdom 09/05/2017

La hotel Lovely hotel in the heart of Hollywood! Rooms were really big and spacious with lovely comfy beds. Fresh towels and toiletries included and the shower was absolutely amazing. Big TV with cable, kitchenette with microwave fridge and coffee machine in your room. Check in was fine staff are so helpful and always ask if you need a taxi etc. Lobby is beautifully decorated with memrobillia. Free WiFi also included which was fast. Good location your right by Hollywood boulevard and the walk of fame etc. Really enjoyed our stay here. They had just finished renovating the pool area which was lovely and sun loungers/towels included! Wish we could of stayed longer! Little tip if your coming to/from the aiport use a bus called the flyaway. It's $8 per person to Hollywood and $8 back and saves you on money on taxis as the traffic in LA is horrendous. Fab little bus always on time and run all day. Couldn't recommend it more and the bus stop is only down the road from the hotel. Overall I do really recommend this hotel its fabulous!! couldn't fault it at all!

"Great place"

User 08/05/2017

The rooms were nice and big, with all the facilities you could possibly need. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location not far from Griffiths observatory and Hollywood walk of fame. Some views also have a view of the Hollywood sign. The excellent 101 coffee shop is down stairs, although it's run by a different owner so you won't be able to cross charge meals to your room. Will probably book this place again on our return trip


User 27/04/2017

Very comfortable room...very comfortable beds...excellent room care...liked the convenience of the 101 cafe and the short walk to gelsons,(a full service grocery and deli)...location excellent for activities in Hollywood and L.A....wonderful car valet service! Small bar in lobby an extra bonus...enjoyed coming back to this hotel after a busy day

"Never again."

User 26/04/2017

We were allocated room with a view of a brick wall, we complained and were reallocated a room with a better view. On the second night at 11:30 while we were trying to sleep there was a loud drilling noise from the room above, when we enquired about it we were told there was a problem with the plumbing, we then noticed that the wash basin in our bathroom was filling up with black water, we then had to wait until midnight for a plumber to come in and fix the problem which took about half an hour. We managed to get to sleep at about 1am but the following morning the black water was filling up in our wash basin again. Reception said they would get the plumber in again to fix it, after I complained about the inconvenience they agreed to reimburse one night's accommodation. The location of the hotel wasn't good either, public transport was virtually non existent so unless you had a car you would need to book a taxi........or walk.

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
I would agree. Not a good experience. We at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel apologize for the inconvenience that was caused during your stay. Some of the time plumbing is and issue at any type of housing facility. We have rectified the plumbing situation, many guest will dispose of different items and after some time this becomes an issue. I'm once again so sorry this happened to effected your stay. I hope our group of associates handled this with professionalism and responded to your concerns. Public transportation can be different depending on the city. Hollywood is much different then lets say New York where you have subways, and cabs on every corner. We do have a bus system that is right in front of the hotel that will take you to most areas of the city with a couple of transfers. Hollywood's subway system is about two blocks from the hotel on Hollywood Blvd. There is also a shuttle service that goes directly to LAX its called the FLYAWAY. Please next time your in town give us a try!

"Lovely hotel "

sharonreid66, Warrington, United Kingdom 22/04/2017

We stayed from 11th April for one week, we had 1 room for 4 people and it had plenty of room with amazingly comfortable beds! It had a large bathroom with an excellent shower and a small kitchen area with sink, fridge, microwave and coffee machine It was spotlessly cleaned every day with fresh towels and coffees etc refilled daily. The cleaning staff were lovely and always greeted us warmly around the hotel and pool area! The reception staff were so polite and helpful answering any questions giving suggestions and ordered us taxis! There's also a free safe which is kept in reception area and only the guest has the key! The hotel is full of Hollywood memorabilia and so interesting to look at. The location is ideal for walk of fame with Hollywood boulevard a 10 min walk away It was on a main road and a little noisy but it never bothered us We enjoyed our stay here very much

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to give our employee's such an outstanding review! I try to share the input from our guests with our associates every week. We understand most of the guests at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel happen to be on vacation. Hopfully we are able to make our hotel a home away from home....

"Great hotel!"

kelseyc208, Sydney, Australia 15/04/2017

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved this hotel! Rooms are massive along with the bathrooms! We also has two queen beds in our room, they are also very clean and tidy and for the price cannot be faulted! The location is great not necessarily within walking distance of anywhere but public transport is near by and short cheap taxi rides also. The front desk were friendly and knowledgeable tall older man with glasses (forgot his name) was wonderful! gave us so much information and explained things to us and gave us directions that people from overseas could easily follow, they also call taxis for you when requested. At times while out at night in Hollywood I begun to feel unsafe, but never while at this hotel it felt very safe. Café 101 was great to have down stairs for coffee each morning and we also had lunch here one day. Had a laugh at how many Aussies were staying here as we were told by both front desk and even a taxi driver how much us Aussies love this hotel! Would Highly recommend this hotel.

"This place has gone downhill"

bethcM9480SB, Hollywood, United States 15/04/2017

I have stayed at this specific location half a dozen times because of its location. When I first stayed here, things were so clean, comfortable and our bathroom even had a view of the Hollywood sign. You couldn't beat the experience with this price! Over the past few years, the price has gone up and the quality has gone downhill. The showers don't have tubs (or even any sort of lip or barrier), so the bathrooms flood if you use any water pressure above just starting the shower. Our room this past time had one small window you couldn't open and no ventilation in the bathroom, so every shower turned the guest room into a sauna for HOURS. They put us in a room next to where the housekeeping kept their supplies, so they came and went a hundred times first thing in the morning, either slamming the door when they left or pulling the latch over (to keep it unlocked) and it slammed on that. I got very little sleep the whole vacation. The outlets in the bathroom didn't work, there was no safe, the wi-fi was super slow, and there was no hand soap made available. The last day we were there, the elevator stopped working (there was only one tiny one on our floor) and we had to carry our suitcases down 3 flights of stairs. I used to love this place, now I will never visit here again. Too expensive for the crappy quality you get now! The only positive is the restaurant attached to the hotel. The food is great for a little diner. The service there is horrendous, though. My female friend and I (also a female) were being waited on by another female in a predominantly male section. She spent our whole dining experience by talking and flirting up the males and barely acknowledging that my friend and I were paying customers. Avoid this place like the plague!

bwhollywood, General Manager at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Wow this hotel sounds really bad and I'm the manager at this place. After reading that review think I wouldn't stay here either. Oh wait, since I'm the manger I can do something about it! First of all what I would like to do is apologize for your experience at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel. At our hotel we have many different types of rooms available to our guest. We happen to have some rooms that are larger in the bathroom area and some larger in the living area. Some have views of Hollywood and some of the Hollywood Sign. Being that you happen to be a returning guest, I would have hoped that my front desk staff would have had the opportunity to talk with you during your check in process and find out the preference that you might have for your room location. I'm sorry that did not accrue. I really believe that if our staff makes great contact during a guests check in, then when a situations accrue during a guests stay hopefully the guest will be more apt to contact the front desk so we might correct an issue. With the Wi-Fi , Elevator and the noise issue we had some missed opportunities to make your stay exceptional. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the food at the 101 Coffee Shop. It's good to hear that you are avoiding the plague. Come to think of it, everyone is avoiding the "plague". The plague, was know as the Black Death. Is our hotel really to the level of the Black Death? The plague Killed like a million people in the 14th Century. Is the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel really that bad? Hope you give us another try so we might make your experience a little better then the plague.

"Terrible Customer Service"

drshadysimon, los angeles 03/04/2017

What a shame! I love Mini Bar and the 101 Cafe, but I stayed at the hotel for a night in March and will never go back. The front desk staff was rude and unhelpful at check-in. After never mentioning a $22 charge for parking the hotel then refused to credit me back the amount after it appeared on my card. I specifically asked about parking when I arrived since I live in the neighborhood and could easily have taken an Uber there for $2. Happily Citibank Visa reimbursed me but for $22 this hotel (and the Best Western chain) lost a customer for life.

bwhollywood, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for the review. I'm really happy you enjoy the 101 Coffee shop and our new Mini Bar at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel. I can also understand your concern about the parking charge. Upon checking into the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel we ask for every guest to sign a registration card that reflects the dates the guest is staying , rates of the room and if a guest has a car , the parking or valet charge. Most often the guest is also asked to sign the registration card. If by chance this did not accrue, we will check into our check in process and once again we apologize for the inconvenience. We believe to be very detailed when charging for a guest to stay in our establishment. We prefer not to depend on word of mouth but a written word to our guests in order verify all future charges and then upon checking out of the hotel every guest has an opportunity to review there bill aslo. Being a neighbor in this area I'm sure you may also understand the parking difficulties and therefore that the city has mandated our hotel to have a valet to park the cars to keep them off of the neighboring streets. As you stated many guest do use Uber and this is also a a great alternative to parking a car at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel. Once again thank you for the important feedback.

"Clean, Comfortable Hollywood Themed Hotel"

User 01/04/2017

Cute boutique motel in Hollywood with lobby décor decorated in Hollywood style with photos of old Hollywood legends. Very clean. Has cute café 101 with good breakfast. Rooms are good sized and have all the amenities. Has 2 shower heads in the shower. Was placed on freeway side so traffic was a bit noisy but not too bad. Highly recommend this hotel. You can tell they truly care about the property/guests. Convenient location too.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel. I appreciate all of the feed back from our guests. We ask our front desk staff while checking in guests to try to give an option if available if the guest would prefer the Franklin side of the hotel or the interior side of the hotel for the exact reason you have stated in your review, because it can be a bit noisy. The Franklin side can be a little brighter with some small views of Hollywood and the Capital Records Building. Please let us know if your coming back to Hollywood! thanks again,

"slowest wifi ever"

hillmel, University Place 28/03/2017

It is in a residental area so very difficult to get a taxi. Front desk will call for taxi but taxi companys are slow to respond. If you are used to cabs lined up , ready, outside of hotel, you will not like this hotel. There is no way you could use their free WIFI for business purposes because of how slow it is-the slowest I have ever seen.

bwhollywood, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good morning! We really appreciate your review on your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel. I miss the days of taxi's waiting for guests at hotels. But the Uber revolution has taken over in most city's. And this has affected the opportunity for taxi company's to keep taxi's in one place for long periods of time. I apologize if the inconvenience this may have caused you. WIFI is one of the most important amenities in any hotel for guests now. We at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel are always looking to increase our service ability. The WIFI is one area that will always be changing and it is our responsibility to change and increase the service. Hope you had a great Stay in Hollywood.

"Great little hotel off the beaten path "

aml_3, Edmonton, Canada 24/03/2017

My mom and I were visiting LA from Alberta, mom's first trip out of Canada for her bday! We stayed here for a few days during our visit. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating.. quick to fix any problems that arise during your stay. We had a huge double sink bathroom in our queen room which was wonderful for two ladies! The decor has a great vintage Hollywood theme to it, and the little diner downstairs is perfect for dining all hours of the day. Keep your eyes peeled in there, we were told ryan gosling had been in for breakfast the day before we arrived..sigh. This hotel is only about a 10 min walk to Hollywood Blvd. We were very pleased with our stay here and would definitely stay again.

Happy Birthday Mom! Thank you for choosing the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills hotel for your special occasion. So you say you want to see your favorite LA LA Land Star? That certain has been a regular at our 101 Coffee shop for years. Often you could see him on a late Friday night enjoying of all things " Chili Fry's" . The 101 Coffee shop is a hidden gem for Star Sightings in LA. If you want to see what it looks like, you can always pull up Comedians Having Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld it was filmed in the hotel and the Coffee Shop.

"Retro hotel great location with amazing service"

User 12/03/2017

This hotel is near the strip, Warner brothers, Griffith observatory and highways. They have a diner downstairs which is amazing. The food is fantastic there. The Staff was very helpful at the hotel. It's not a fancy hotel but you are in los Angeles you should spend as much time outside as you can. Walk up a few blocks there is an ICe cream place, French bistro, gourmet food shop with daily specials( great for lunch), and you can see the Hollywood sign from the hotel

"Clean Room Reasonably Priced"

gbmom_11, Grand Blanc, Michigan 27/11/2016

One of the few hotels in the area which is affordable for a family of four. Valet parking is also reasonably priced at $22. Our room was very spacious including a huge bathroom with double sinks. Beds were comfortable and breakfast is available in the diner downstairs. The hotel is within walking distance to the walk of fame as well as a few restaurants. The Hollywood sign is visible from a few of the rooms. Front desk staff was efficient and friendly. Overall, the hotel is clean and affordable. We would not hesitate to return on our next visit to Hollywood.

"We acted in a film ??"

User 26/11/2016

This hotels great place to be. Not so far from the famous Hollywood sign (which we saw from the room). We spent two nights there and, on the first morning, we couldn't take the breakfast at the hotel because a film was shot in the restaurant. I particularly appreciated the decorations the room and the reception.

"Delightfully Surprised"

Angela G, CA, United States 19/11/2016

Not only were we surprised at the decor, but we were surprised and delighted with the rooms. They have high ceilings and large restrooms, including a small seat in the shower. The hotel has a nice smoking area that is easy to access. We did not get to enjoy the bar, but if we stay again, we definitely will. The coffee shop restaurant was excellent, even at 2:30 am. The menu was varied with many vegetarian options, and the staff was very attentive, as well. The only awkward part was the extremely small elevator, but one becomes accustomed quickly.

"Incredible Stay!"

269megann, Salem, United States 18/11/2016

I had a wonderful stay at this particular location. Have visited LA before on previous occasions and stayed in other hotels, but they just did not compare to the quality and comfort received at this one. (And surprisingly the price was cheaper too, which was a huge bonus to us!) The rooms were furnished gorgeously, the pillows the softest I've ever felt, and the whole place just felt nice and quiet.

"God hotel 5 minutes from walk of fame"

Bengt J, Stockholm, Sweden 10/11/2016

Good hotel with a outdoor pool located a 5 minute walk from walk of fame. Easy access from and to freeway. Valet parking for a descent price. A bit far from Venice/Santa Monica and rodeo drive, but it depends what you wanna see and do.

"Great family hotel"

Michelle M, Cincinnati, United States 07/11/2016

Chose this hotel from online reviews and so glad I did. Great little, eclectic hotel. In room microwave and fridge was great for the was the on site washer/dryer which I didn't seek out but ended up needing. The 101 Coffee Shop was great (food was slightly cold but they reheated/made fresh with no problem). Was disappointed it didn't open until 7am and wasn't able to eat there before our flight home. Great location too!

"Great location!"

User 02/11/2016

Safe. Check-in was easy and the valet guys were great! We had a large room with a small kitchen area. We booked directly through the BW site which is the ONLY way we will book from now on. Easy in and out of the parking lot. Walking distance to Hollywood Blvd and walk of fame. Great location!

"Great Location!!!"

ayumiyam1, Irvine, California 02/11/2016

We stayed last weekend for one night to go to a Halloween party. The hotel is small but nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room had what we wanted and it was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi is always a plus. I liked the fact that the hotel is very close to Hollywood Blvd, to Universal Studios and to many restaurants. The valet parking is $20 which is good for a hotel in Hollywood. I recommend this hotel and I would stay again.

"Below average"

jeanmarc3, Scottsdale, Arizona 31/10/2016

Pros: - Hotel is close to Hollywood Blvd (although we found Hollywood Blvd to be very disappointing), and the Hollywood sign - Parking staff is great and very friendly Cons: - If you are walking towards Hollywood Blvd at night, you will encounter many homeless people sleeping under the highway underpass (we counted 6-7), and foul smells... - Our room had a stain on one of the bed sheets (see picture), and an iron burn mark on the carpet (literally the shape of an iron!) - Wife's car got damaged when we used street parking the first night, and so we used the hotel parking on the second night at the $20 rate. - Swimming pool is at the center of the units, and can be loud when children are there - Water pressure in our shower was a little low - Our room was dark, with not much natural light

"Historic stay walking distance to WEHO sites"

Holly B, Ottawa, Canada 28/10/2016

We had this hotel booked by our travel agent & it does not disappointed fir West Hollywood in size, funk or price - Our room was a classic '50's room with mini kitchen (great for chilling your Cali wines), a large main/bedroom & bathroom. We were offered a room with a view (aka, Franklin Ave) and while a little noisy with the traffic, nothing the A/C or those used to regular city noise can't handle. The hotel has a funky feel to it with all its retro hollywood photos & is well working distance to the walk of fame, theatres, tours, etc. There's a funky cafe/dinner & bar on site too + pay parking. The lot is tight so I recommend small cars if parking or carefully maneuvering it -

"Rooms a surprise at Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills"

LondonTraveller703, London, Ontario, Canada 26/10/2016

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel before going on a cruise to Mexico. When you see the entrance, the lobby and the pool area, you might think you are in a 'not so great' hotel, but you get a real surprise when you go in the rooms. I believe what they have done is keep the original charm of the hotel, but spent a lot on upgrading the rooms. They are very clean and very modern, including the bathrooms. The double shower is an excellent feature. The photos of celebrities who stayed at the hotel provide a unique touch. Service was also very good. I will comment on the attached restaurant in another review.

"Quirky yet Quaint Time Machine"

DeeBeeOne, Singapore 23/10/2016

Though the exterior of the hotel is unimpressive, it's a different story indoors. The lobby is compact and the staff is courteous and will give you a map of the nearby location. It has a restaurant called Cafe 101 adjacent to the lobby area. The place is decorated with Hollywood memorabilia from a bygone era. To their credit, it has been done tastefully as it could have gone wrong to look super tacky. We were given a room on the 2nd floor in the corner. The room size was large and the bathroom was a decent size. There was quite a lot of noise from the cafe at night but by closing the bathroom door, the sound thankfully disappeared. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. There are no safes in the room but the front desk offers safety boxes. The room had occasionally noisy sounds from suitcases or people thumping while moving about upstairs. Check in and check out was seamless. There is a small fridge, microwave, iron and the WiFi is free. It has a fairly good location. About a 10 minute walk to the Hollywood / Vine metro and the Walk of Fame. About a half an hour walk to the Chinese theatre. It is a 5 mins walk to the Capitol records building. There is a mini mart and a Thai restaurant adjacent to the hotel on one side. On the other side after a 10 minute walk, is a huge supermarket called Gelson that has pretty much everything. Griffith Observatory is a 20 mins cab ride costing about 21 bucks and Griffith Park is about a 15 mins cab ride. The hotel can call a taxi on request. You can prearrange with the cable driver to pick you up at a designated time from the Griffith observatory. Else you are stuck there without access to any public transport on a week day. The Hollywood sign is visible from certain rooms on the higher floors. It is easily visible from the roads adjacent to the hotel. If you are walking, part of the road is swamped by construction and there are some homeless folks lying about in that area. Though we came back late at night, it seemed to be quite safe. But the road is quite desolate, so it's better to be on your guard. You need to be cautious when crossing the road adjacent to the gas station as the level crossing is non existent. Better check ahead if you want to extend your stay.You may be allowed a late checkout till about 1 pm. If you have a late night flight, you can request the hotel to keep your bags in the cloak room. You can prebook an exclusive airport shuttle which costs 65 bucks and will drop you to LAX in 1 hour time subject to traffic. Getting to the hotel is easy, just opt for Supershuttle which is a share shuttle and will charge about 17 bucks per person including kids. This is a fairly good hotel offering value for money and great connectivity to the nearby attractions. The cafe offers decent food options and are very well prepared and served cheerfully by the waiters. There is no room service and it also has a swimming pool. Car parking is about 20 bucks a night.

"Quaint hotel close to walk of fame"

ozinlondon08, London 22/10/2016

Great hotel! staff are super nice and friendly. Free Wifi - though I couldn't always get this to work on my phone. Room size very good as was the bathroom. room was a little noisey and this is only from the outside traffic. our room had a view of the Hollywood sign so for us that was a massive bonus. There is an onsite restaurant the food was below average as was the service. There is a pool at the hotel. The hotel location is pretty good too, about 45minutes from the airport via taxi. There is a public bus stop out the front. The Hollywood Hills are just behind the hotel and the Hollywood sign can also been seen from the corners near the hotel. There is large supermarket and restaurants about a 10min walk away. There are some restaurants and a mini market nearer to the hotel. The Walk of Fame is about 10min walk and the Dolby Theatre and Chinese theatre is about a 25min walk. Capital Records 5min walk. Would highly recommend the hotel. The halls in both the reception, lift and the 4th floor hall and our room was decorated with Hollywood stars of the past (& present) so it given a very Hollywood feel to our stay here

"Another great stay"

Duskman554, Eastbourne, United Kingdom 19/10/2016

This hotel is in a great location for Hollywood and LA sight seeing. It has a lovely bar and the 101 dinner which has been used in many films and TV shows. It can also be a place where local people go. It's great for a short or even longer stay. We will return.

"Good location, good value"

ElaineD486, Lexington, Massachusetts 13/10/2016

Not fancy, but a clean, comfortable hotel. Decorated with old film star pictures. Good breakfast place attached- very popular with locals, and great waitstaff. Nice location-near the Hollywood sign and access to highways. Swimming pool in atrium.


User 12/10/2016

The hotel shouts out loud and clear 'Welcome to Hollywood'. It's hollywood actors all over the property. Courteous staff, clean rooms. Small kitchenette with microwave and coffee machine. Huge bathrooms, haven't seen bigger in US. Short walk to railway station and walk of fame. Not very far from Universal Studios. Super market next door. Great place to soak in HOLLYWOOD!!

"Good hotel and location"

Sylvia J, Cardiff, United Kingdom 08/10/2016

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights last month. It's in a great location for Hollywood Boulevard (few minutes walk) Warner Brothers Studios and Universal Studios (both a 10-15 minute drive away). Our room was really nice with a great bathroom. We were in the main block with all the memorabilia along the walls and in my view the best part of the hotel. The pool is on the other side. There's a great diner attached to the hotel where we had breakfast on a couple of days and also dinner once. There are a few restaurants a few minutes walk down the road. My only criticism of this hotel is the $20 + tax per night charge for parking plus having to have a concierge to park our car which we were quite capable of doing ourselves. Guess we're just not used to this in the UK.

"Excellent budget hotel!!"

User 05/10/2016

Excellent hotel in a reasonable area of Los Angeles, with good access to downtown LA and other areas. Great staff, who were very helpful throughout our stay. Nicely appointed rooms with good facilities and impeccably clean!! Car parking on site, but an extra charge of $20/night is applicable, although there is on street parking adjoining the hotel.

"Excellent Location, Exceptional Service"

TravellingMe9, Toronto 24/09/2016

I stayed at this hotel on a business/leisure trip. Was in town for meetings for two days, then added four more days as leisure time. Hotel itself almost seems like it belongs in a 1950s movie. Not in a bad way at all though ! The front desk staff were very happy and helpful at all times. When I was checking in, I met a young couple from Australia who were arriving at the same time. With the time differences, they had arrived one day earlier than they had expected to. (They had actually arrived the day before they had left. Weird, but very true, due to the international date lines and time zones.) The hotel was fully booked that night, and the young couple wasn't in the system until the following day. The front desk people immediately told the couple (who were almost in tears learning that they didn't have a room), not to worry, got on the phone to other nearby hotels, and within a few minutes had them in a cab on their way to another property for one night. I saw that that couple later that week in the restaurant, and asked them how that first night had worked out for them. They told me that when they checked out of the other hotel after that first night, the Best Western had made arrangements for their luggage to be picked up and relocated directly to their room at the Best Western, to save them the inconvenience of doing it themselves. And the BW had arranged for the other hotel to only charge the rate they were paying at the BW, even though the other hotel's same-day rate was "much higher". My room had posters of old movies and TV shows, but with modern amenities. I had a kitchenette with mini fridge and microwave, dishes, cutlery, dishtowels, etc. The room had a comfortable sofa, very comfortable bed, and a modern, wall-mount HDTV with all the cable channels. The bathroom was enormous, and had recently been totally renovated top to bottom. The hotel has an attached parking garage, with plenty of space. I admit that once I parked my rental car, I only took it out twice during my stay, because it was so close to all amenities. Maybe next time, I won't even bother to rent a car. The hotel had an outdoor pool, which I didn't make use of as it was fall. The adjacent diner had absolutely delicious meals, at very affordable prices. I had breakfast there every day, and a couple of late dinners. And the servers were super-friendly and kind. The hotel is situated close enough to the Hollywood Strip that I was able to walk to and from almost everything. I walked to/from Hollywood & Highland, where my meetings were, then walked back again during my days off to be a tourist. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel !

"A Very Cool Place, and I'm a Local"

Cris H, Newport Beach, California 23/09/2016

Well, actually I live about 1hr south and needed a hotel in Hollywood for a late meeting. My expectations weren't too high, and man was I surprised. First, the staff is super friendly. The doesn't always happen in Hollywood. Second, the decor in the hotel really made my day. They somehow managed to create a fun and tasteful way to display autographs, movie posters, and Hollywood memorabilia. The room was big, clean, and had very cool movie memorabilia as well. The Minibar bar was funky and fun, and the diner in the hotel was a great new take on the old diner, complete with counter. If you want a nice, safe, clean place that has some fun Hollywood charm, this is your move. Easy to walk to most Hollywood attractions, but far enough way to avoid the screaming crazy people.

"Very Helpfull"

Tinsut, Scotland 21/09/2016

After a bad start the Group came to our rescue. :-) They made our first night in the USA a pleasure, nothing to much and helped us by supplying maps free of charge, amazing people and always a smile on everyone's face.

"nice place to stay for a few days."

Josh13101993, Launceston, Australia 19/09/2016

This hotel is a hotel where you get what you pay for. It is not the most fanciest hotel in Hollywood but for the price it's pretty good. The Staff are friendly and willing to help you plan your Hollywood vacation, however it's a little bit out of the way from the major Hollywood attractions such as the BLV, Beverly Hills and the nice resturarts however there are a few good places to eat down a few blocks. The rooms are tidy and have a small kitchen which most hotels dont offer, there is also a laundry which is a plus. The only negative we had during our stay was the food. The resturant bellow has very friendly staff but the food isnt all that great, i would reccomend venturing out to eat. All in all this hotel is a good hotel if you are looking at saving a bit of money on accomodation, with very friendly staff im sure your stay will be enjoyable.

"Great hotel in the best location! "

User 15/09/2016

We checked into this hotel on 5/09/16 and stayed for 10 days. The hotel is situated on Franklin Avenue which is 5 minutes from the Walk of Fame and 20 minutes from Chinese Theatre, both in walking distance. There is a Supermarket 2 buildings down which is great to pop to if needed, also an excellent Chinese called Maxim about 5-10 minutes away. The hotel itself was spotless 24/7 no word of a lie, the cleaners do an excellent job. The room itself was spacious with two large double beds, a TV with a massive selection of programmes and movies. There is a small kitchen but has everything you needed we only really used the fridge. The pool wasn't great but didn't really expect too much from it. It was nice to relax in as it was quite all day. The pool wasn't warm but it was good to cool off into whilst scorching in the Los Angeles heat. The staff couldn't do enough for you, from allowing us to print boarding cards off in the lobby to helping us located the Chinese theatre. I would recommend visiting the cafe which links onto the hotel, the staff were amazing fast service and huge portion sizes. They were also filming a TV show in there on the day we left, and Ryan Gosling loves that restaurant and visits frequently.

"Top hotel with best prices."

User 15/09/2016

I stayed in Hollywood for a week and this hotel was my first choice. I compared prices to many of the other hotels and this one was well below the going rate for others. The location is just a few blocks from Hollywood Blvd. The 101 freeway entrance is close. The cafe in the hotel serves great food at a reasonable price. ( LA is a very expensive town) The hotel rooms are spacious and very clean. The room I stayed in was excellent, spacious well lit bathrooms, comfortable beds, tv"s were large with many options if you wanted down time in your room. The hotel staff was really working hard to pay attention to your needs, from the valet, room attendants, front desk staff answering questions and providing directions to " Walk of Fame" Hollywood sign or places to see on your tour of LA. The hotel has a small cocktail lounge and I enjoyed a few libations to kick off the night. This is a hotel I enjoyed and will return.


Julie H, Nottingham, United Kingdom 14/09/2016

Funky, with good rooms and decent bathrooms. We were in the back part which is a quad around a pool and liked the Hollywood vibe created by photos and decor. It is an easy walk to walk of fame. Cafe(which is not part of hotel) is great. Only downside is pool, a bit small with insufficient sun beds. If you are in a room around the pool on ground floor it could be noisy.

"Trendy but falls short of expectations"

SactoGamer, Las Vegas, Nevada 12/09/2016

For $230 per night ($250 if you include the mandatory valet parking fee) you'd think you'd have a near-perfect hotel experience. Apparently, that isn't quite the case. At least, not for this hotel. First the good: Location is great. It's only a short walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a brief drive to Universal Studios, and has some cool juice bars, coffee shops, and nightlife spots nearby. Staff is friendly. Check-in was a breeze and the desk folks were only too happy to provide walking directions. Bathroom is large and semi-luxurious. Twin sinks, granite countertop, walk-in shower, etc. The (notable) bad: The bed. The mattress wasn't the most comfortable and the pillows were much too thick and dense. The noise. We easily heard plenty of sound coming from other guests whether that be from outside or from nearby rooms. The shower. While the bathroom overall was great, the water pressure wasn't. The price. $230 per night? Seriously? You're a Best Western. Get over yourself! Won't stay there again despite it having a great location. It simply isn't worth the money.

"Nice and comfortable"

csquah, Penang Island, Malaysia 10/09/2016

A big nice room with very comfortable bed.Hotel staff are friendly enough to provide us the info required and introduce the nearly area. Walking distance about 10 mins to Hollywood Blvd but you will need to cross a quiet street before reaching Star of Frame. Feel bit unsafe during night time.

"Wonderful hotel, amazing location "

Maria F, Melbourne, Australia 07/09/2016

We booked two double rooms & were very pleasantly surprised with everything about this hotel, from the helpful, friendly staff at check in to the lovely clean rooms with amazing bathroom with a view of the Hollywood sign & really comfy beds to the perfect pool area. They also have a very, very cool bar & a funky diner that serves amazing food at very good prices. Needless to say we loved this place & would love to stay there again

"Perfect location and greet hotel"

Beth_A106, Barnstaple, United Kingdom 04/09/2016

We had to rooms between six of us which had a dorm between the two which was great! The bathroom had a double shower and was very spacious. Breakfast was not included in the price however the breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel was amazing with a great selection. The location is perfect for exploring the attractions of LA. would certainly recommend!

"THE Best Western Hollywood Stay"

User 02/09/2016

My husband and I were recently on our honeymoon and we stayed in total of three different hotels in three different cities. By far this one was the best! Swift check in and handy map to help us find our way in downtown LA. Rooms was massive in comparison to our hotels in the UK - two double beds, one for sleeping and one for the suitcases! The bathroom was spot on too with lovely hot stone showers which put ours to absolute shame. The colourful painting of the building adds to warm and positive atmosphere that the hotel exudes! Finally the cafe/diner that is attached the building was the icing on the cake. Affordable prices and a breakfast to beat no other - we ate there everyday (sometimes twice)! We would definitely stay there again if we were back in the LA area!

"Thumbs up for room size!"

sk33t8, luton 01/09/2016

My girlfriend and I arrived here by car after a smooth drive down the west coast. Tad bit confusing where to park firstly, they do have valet parking so if you are coming straight of the highway with the hotel on your left hand side, I would recommend taking the first left before the hotel and a quick right into the drive through just before the multi-story car park. Check in was smooth and helpful, pointing out the nearby eats and touristy bits. The view from our room wasn't the best but the room is large and clean, pleasant kitchen area, large living area and a huge bathroom. We stayed here for 2 nights, I thought the location was good, but as we had the car we weren't restricted to public transport but Hollywood boulevard was only a 10 minute walk away. The bar in the hotel is small but very 50's, great feel to it and specialised in whiskeys. There is a cafe attached, we ate there both mornings and received both good and bad service but this is no reflection on the hotel its self as i think they are completely separate. We didn't use the pool as i think that was located in the newer of the two buildings, but we did use their self service laundry facility. Anyways, reasonably priced, comfy and clean with huge rooms you could swing a moose in and good service. I would recommend this hotel.

"End of a three week tour of the west of America????"

Chris B, Liverpool, United Kingdom 28/08/2016

Pros- Free wifi, clean, air conditioned, sizeable fridge , microwave, pool, restaurant/ dinner attached, bar attached, shops/petrol stations near-by and staff were friendly. Cons- sliding Room Windows aren't secure coupled with no room safe, parking $20 plus tax a day in a car park were you could clearly park yourself, the immediate area is rough as you head towards the main areas which are a 10 minute walk away. (this isn't the hotels issue just an observation). In conclusion this place was ok but didn't have the holiday/ vacation feel, more of a functional room for the stay.

"2 night stop"

User 28/08/2016

Generously sized room with huge bathroom and even a small kitchen. You can see the Hollywood sign from the road and probably some of the other rooms so superbly located for universal Studios and the walk of fame. The diner underneath is fantastic. Reasonable, big portions, and feels so authentic. Hidden gem? Chocolate waffle Sundae is really for 3 people or more. It beat me and my son sharing! Would be a 5 but for road noise from freeway outside our room

"Great room!"

User 28/08/2016

Nice hotel. We booked because it had a pool, but we did not use it. Coming from the heatwave in NYC the weather felt balmy! Close to walk of fame. Dont go early like we did at 8.30am. It was still full of homeless and stank. Visited the mini bar for a drink and the diner for dinner. Food average but the surroundings are cool!

"Great location"

TonyBartlett, London, United Kingdom 25/08/2016

BEST WESTERN PLUS Hollywood Hills Hotel is jus a 10 minute walk from Hollywood Boulevard A great location from which to explore Hollywood and all that goes with it Would definitely book it again when back in L.A

"A fantastic week"

ctmroberts2008, Chester, United Kingdom 23/08/2016

A wonderful hotel lovely room and a small but adequate pool. A nice 20ish minute walk to the walk of fame all in what felt like a safe area even coming back late. A good base for exploring the area with the 101 just down the road. There is a nice supermarket just a few blocks up where you can get your daily essentials. The diner served nice food and we enjoyed all the star photos on the walls. There is a $22 charge to park your car but this did not bother us to much as you could pull up outside and the valet would park your car for you.

"Clean and comfortable"

AdventureMonkey12, San Francisco, California 22/08/2016

The location is excellent if you plan on sightseeing in Hollywood. Very clean rooms. Nice bathroom and shower. Excellent staff. The cafe serves a nice breakfast to start your day of adventure in the Holyywood area.

"Good location, good hotel"

User 21/08/2016

It was a good hotel. The front desk staff were not super kind, but they were ok. It was too cold to use the pool, but it looked alright. The breakfast wasn't part of the room fee which was disappointing. On the positive side it was well situated, close to the hollywood hills for good hiking. Also close to the nightlife area and restaurants which was great.

"Large rooms, cool decor, unimpressive location"

User 19/08/2016

My family of four stayed at the Best Western PLUS Hollywood Hills in July of 2016 and were very impressed by the size of the room, especially the bathroom and the shower! This is a cool hotel that feels almost like a boutique rather than a huge chain. The decor is fun and we spent a while looking around at all of the Hollywood memorabilia that covered the walls including signed photos of celebrities who apparently stayed at this location. The location of this hotel left a lot to be desired. It's not terrible but the area does not seem very safe. One good thing is that the Walk of Fame and the Dolby Theater are not a terrible walk from the hotel. It took us about 20 minutes to walk there, however the walk is not one I would feel comfortable making at night.

"Clean and tidy"

User 14/08/2016

We booked this hotel after a bad experience at our hotel in LA and we are glad we did. This hotel has a really funky interior with a true hollywood vibe. It is a basic and simple room but very comfortable. The diner downstairs was great and had a real american vibe. I would stay here again!

"Nice hotel if wanting to be near to walk of fame"

andyclfc, LIVERPOOL 08/08/2016

first trip to hollywood so looking for somewhere to stay near wlak of fame. Nice hotel situated approximately 15-20 mins walk from central walk of fame area. Nice rooms and parking available on site (although chargeable which is a downside). Small pool area which was closed during one of the days of our stay. Happy overall with hotel but would dtay in another part of LA if we revisit in future

"Cute decor/good hotel"

Veronica J, Napa, United States 03/08/2016

Clean hotel with fun interior décor. Staff was nice but not over the top. Small parking area. Restaurant was ok. My father and brother that I was traveling with loved it. I have food allergies and could not eat here. Not many healthy alternatives but kind staff all the way through! Would over all stay here again. Beds were super comfy. It was quiet.

"Hollywood Gem"

User 03/08/2016

Immaculately presented hotel. Full cable-wow. Beautiful pool. Comfy beds and large rooms. I have to call out the 101 diner and the mini bar, both of which are attached to the hotel. Loved them both and the memory of having meat loaf for dinner while playing songs on the jukebox diner will live with me for a while. This hotel was a little oasis in a city that's big, busy and fun and we felt right at home.


Jakep35, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom 31/07/2016

The best western plus hollywood hills is an excellent hotel! I travelled with my 2 friends in June 2016. The room itself is big enough for 3 people however I think that it was would be a bit cramped for 4 people! The bathroom is a good size and the towels were changed every day. The reception staff were all really friendly and always willing to help and answer any questions. There is a cafe attached to the hotel that does really good breakfast and good food in the evening. The location of the hotel is perfect, just up the road from the Hollywood Boulevard and close to the LAX flyaway bus stop. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Hollywood!


Lily T, Sacramento, California 13/07/2016

We booked two rooms with two queens for $200 each. Staff were not friendly. The carpets were dirty, the showers are not for families. There were non hotel guests hanging out near the rooms and elevators. There weren't any security guards. They have one guy watch the parking lot and he is not always there. We felt very uncomfortable and unsafe staying here so we left by 10pm. What a waste of $400. Will not be back!

"Good value.."

cgbt10, Mississauga, Ontario 12/07/2016

We had a pretty good experience with this hotel. We arrived late at night for check in and there had been a mixup with our room so they provided parking at no cost and offered a cot at no extra cost. This is acknowledged as good service! The room itself was well appointed with a kitchen equipped with sink, microwave and mini fridge. The washroom was very big! The bed was comfortable and we loved that we could open the windows for fresh air and listen to the sounds of the neighbourhood. The hotel has a restaurant and bar that is open late. The location isn't the prettiest however it is only a 2 block walk to the start of the walk of fame.

bwhollywood, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good Afternoon, Thank you so much for the great feed back on your recent stay at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. I was sorry to hear upon your arrival there was a mix up with your room. I'm glad our Front Desk professionals were able to rectify the situation to make your stay a positive one in Hollywood. The Hollywood area is always growing and is changing for the positive everyday. Once again that you for the very important feed back!

"Just right!"

dredd123, Halifax, United Kingdom 12/07/2016

Didn't know quite what to expect. Here in the UK, the 'Best Western' brand has a dodgy reputation - so much that they had a 'fly-on-the-wall' TV documentary couple of years back about the backroom horrors of the system. But can't really fault this place, for price, location, cleanliness, decor. I would guess literally thousands of framed photo-memorabilia from Hollywood through the years, Didn't use the small pool, or the restaurant. There's a cool bar in the hotel (the 'Mini Bar) open late with live music the night we stayed.

bwhollywood, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Hollywood Hills Hotel, responded to this review
Good Afternoon, Thank you for the time you and your family spent at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills Hotel. Being from the UK, its a long trip to Hollywood and often an expensive one as well. We are very happy that you chose our hotel for your family to have there Hollywood experience at and hopefully the autographed walls that fills the hotel helped with that experience. Often many reviews of hotel are through " TV documentaries" and more often this is a great way for hotels to change some of the view of the guests of the hotel once the hotel changes the scrutinized cleanliness or policies in question. Our Mini Bar, is a new added amenity at the Best Western Plus Hollywood Hills, its know to attract many locals as in Movie Stars also! thank you once again for your review.

"Cute Hotel"

User 07/07/2016

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Hollywood Hills. Our room was spacious. The beds were comfortable. The decor was cute and memorable. We all enjoyed seeing all of the movie star pictures. The pool was heated and the kids liked the fact that it was treated with salt rather than chlorine. The restaurant was not great. It was overpriced and the service was slow.

"Nice and comfortable stay, location perfect!"

Kunal5988, New Delhi, India 06/07/2016

I stayed here with my wife in late February 2016. The location is just perfect. 10 mins walk to hollywood boulevard, 10 mins cab ride to Griffith observatory, 15 mins cab ride to universal. The Hollywood sign was visible from our bathroom window. The room was pretty comfortable. There is microwave in the rooms, which is very convenient. Didn't like the attitude of the staff at the reception, was given a room that wasn't even clean. But apart from that, everything was good. Also, cab sharing rides like uber and lyft are easily available. Grocery markets and restaurants within 5 mins walk. Hotel's own Cafe 101 is also great!

"Location, location, location"

8budweiser, Markham, Canada 06/07/2016

Hotel satisfied our needs. 15-min walk to Hollywood Blvd, 15 min drive to Warner Bros, Universal, Hollywood Bowl. We got the top floor - had no problems sleeping. The bathroom was HUGE and the queen beds are very comfortable. WiFi signal was very strong. Parking is steep at $22/day albeit valet. Downtown LA is 30 min away via the metro (subway). There is a grocery store (Gelson's - 5 min walk) and you can see the Hollywood sign from there too. Staff is very accommodating - there was a confusion on parking payment - I paid the attendants cash and also got charged on my hotel bill which they reversed within 24 hrs after telling them what happened. Will definitely stay here again If I am in the area.

"An old standby in Hollywood"

R8231EUmichaels, The Villages, Florida 05/07/2016

We always stay in this hotel when visiting LA because our daughter lives close by in an apartment in Los Filez. The décor is all about the glory of "Old Hollywood" with tons of old photos and other memorabilia. The on site coffee shop has good food and the hotel is walking distance to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Pantages theater, and other famous sites. We usually stay in January or February when room availability is better. This time we stayed in June on our way back from an Alaska tour, and we were lucky to get the very last room in the hotel in the pool tower. We have much better rooms on previous stays when we stayed in the main tower. The rooms there tend to be larger and better decorated, but "beggars can't be choosers".

"Great location and super burger bar next door!"

User 02/07/2016

From the parking lot, which was easy to find, to the great burger you can get right next door, this was a really good hotel for a quick stay in LA. We could walk to the Walk of Fame and the rooms where just as they should be.

"Great Location - Decent Hotel"

CliveandJudith, UK 29/06/2016

We stayed 4 nights in May in a nice big room with space to make tea / coffee. Coffee machine broke while we were there but was quickly replaced. Good size and comfortable bed and TV. Reception staff always helpful, 101 restaurant on site and therefore really handy especially for a good american breakfast. Only down side is the noise. The hotel is in two parts and there is an air conditioning flu on the outside of the part where reception is which means that those room around the pool which ours was are subjected to the constant loud hum.

"Nice atmosphere"

Juha P, Oulu, Finland 29/06/2016

Among the thousands of hotells in LA BW Hollywood Hills is a good choice if you are travelling with family and you have a car. It is quite a easy to drive every where in LA from this hotell. The highway 101 is just in the corner. The famous Hollywood Boulevard is just 5 minutes walk away. The atmosphere in the hotel is good: you are surrounded with all movie stars (plenty of photos ect) in the hotel. Room was big enough for family use (4 peson), it was clean and the room service did excellent work every day. The small pool area is most of the day mostly in schadow but anyhow the pool is ok. Parking is easy: the parking assistant take care of your car. Good choise for families and couples for few days visit.

"My new place to stay in the Hollywood area."

Tara F, Peoria, Az 28/06/2016

This place is the best place I have stayed at in the area. The room we got was room 304 and was a corner room. Check in was easy and they were so friendly. We arrived early and was surprised our room was ready so we could check in early. The room was really big compared to other places I have stayed at. It was great for the girls weekend. The bathroom was huge as well. There also was a little area with a microwave, fridge, sink ad coffee maker and a closet. I love the movie memorabilia in the rooms and through out the hotel. There is a small bar downstairs that was a great spot for us to grab a drink and then call the Uber to pick us up. Also on the property is a small diner called Cafe 10 and the food is pretty good and is open late. We had breakfast there and was surprised they offered veggie sausage. One of my LA friends told me Scarlett Johansson has been known to eat there, but I did not see her on this trip :) The room was clean and it was quiet. The bed was so comfy I wanted to sleep in on Saturday but had to get up and go meet a friend for the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will be back soon.

"Great location, especially if not driving in LA"

TheSalmon86, London, United Kingdom 25/06/2016

I am a 29 year old British woman and I stayed here by myself last September for 6 nights so that I could sight-see around LA. I also did not want to hire a car, but I didn't find this to be too much of a problem because this hotel is a good location. The hotel is not too far from the airport and I used an airport shuttle service to get here. It was cheap and convenient. My flight was delayed, but it wasn't a problem, they just put me on the next van which was going in the right direction. They also text me to confirm my transfer home the day before which I thought was an excellent and reassuring part of the service. The room was lovely with two massive beds, a huge bathroom and a little kitchen area. I had breakfast every day in the 101 coffee shop which is part of the hotel. The portions were really big and the food was delicious so most days I didn't even have lunch and just had an early dinner. The staff on reception were really helpful and knowledgeable and they provided a safety deposit box which I left my money and passport in. The hotel has good wifi and they also have a PC which I used for printing tickets. The hotel is within walking distance to the walk of fame. In the nighttime I would not advise walking back though. There are lots of homeless people and I did not always feel safe. From the walk of fame I got tickets for 48 hours of the tourist bus. This took me all round LA. I saw rodeo drive, the hotel from Pretty woman, the farmers market etc., I also went to a filming of the late late show with James Corden. (Tickets had been ordered in advance). The next day I went to Santa Monica, Venice Beach, the hotel from Jane the Virgin etc The tourist bus does take a long time due to the horrendous traffic and the fact that the route is a big loop, but if you can't or don't want to drive it's really not too bad as you get to see lots. The next day I went on a tour of the stars homes. Again you can pick this up from the walk of fame. Was cheesy but fun and the man asked me which celebs I liked and then took me to see the Beckhams house when I asked where that was. Then I chilled out at the hotel pool. It's not very big but there was hardly anyone using it and it was well maintained. From this hotel you can see the Hollywood sign. I got a ten dollar cab to the end of Beachwood Drive which is a few "blocks" down and then I hiked up to behind the top of the Hollywood sign. I had spoken to one person on reception. He explained to me that you are not meant to do it, but people print off instructions from the Internet and do it all the time. This was without doubt the best thing I did on my trip. It was hot and hard but the views were amazing. When I reached the top a group of Americans high fived me and were like "you did it girl!" Also a guy had just proposed to his girlfriend at the top. You can't touch the sign because it's fenced off and there are loads of security cameras but seeing the big letters close up was really cool. I then got a cab to the Hollywood walk of fame in the evening to eat dinner. There's lots of restaurants to choose from. The theme park is also here but I didn't visit. On the last day I got a cab to Warner Brothers studio. This was a little bit expensive to get there and I should have maybe used uber instead. WB tour has lots of cool things for Harry Potter fans but I was mainly excited to see the friends set. Big Bang Theory is also filmed here but we couldn't see the set because it was actually in use. I didn't see any of the stars, unfortunately! In summary this is a lovely, well looked after hotel with great staff and it is a fab location for exploring LA. The price I paid for this hotel was not bad. If I had gone with others and split the cost of the room it would have been very reasonable indeed. I felt very safe here by myself which was very important to me.

"Nice hotel , shame about the location"

Dave B, Preston, United Kingdom 21/06/2016

We really liked this hotel . The rooms are large and comfortable and very clean . There is a cafe/restaurant (101 cafe) on site and a nice little bar . The hotel is decorated throughout with movie and music memorabilia which is great and you can spend ages just looking at this in the room, corridor and lifts. The staff are helpful and friendly . The parking is valet service and costs $20 a night so not cheap . The pool is very small and not really worth bothering with . The big downside is the area . It is only 10 mins walk to the Walk of Fame but on the way there are lots of tramps and strange people - I would recommend you use Uber!!! One morning we opened our curtains and there was a women directly across the road with her pants down doing a toilet- not what you want outside your hotel .

"Love the Old Hollywood vibe"

Kathycaa, Melbourne, Australia 20/06/2016

The hotel is cozy and casual. Both the bedroom and bathroom are decent. I absolutely loved the photos of Old Hollywood stars and could look at them all day. It is a great location as the place is situated quite near Hollywood attractions like the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"This is not a "Plus" hotel"

Paul H, Fresno, United States 17/06/2016

This is an old motel which needs major remodeling, including elevators. reception, and hallways. We had the joy of hearing and seeing water cascade from our shower head every time the room next door flushed their toilet (don't know where the water came from). Beds were comfortable, but the room was overpriced for the condition and the location.

"A 1970's Style Motel offering Very Good Service"

Crawford M, Bendigo, Australia 15/06/2016

This hotel was built about 40+ years ago but is maintained very well, clean, comfortable, rooms spacious and well appointed. It is 40 mins walk from the popular parts of Hollywood Blvd. Staff were welcoming, helpful and pleasant. There is a very good café attached. A pleasant place to stay.

"A budget hotel at a great location"

vineetj86, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India 13/06/2016

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The rooms were okay with all basic amenities. Bathrooms were fair enough with all toileteries. Howeverthe bathing area had some leakage issues with water dripping all the time from the shower. the room had a microwave and small kitchenette. The interiors are done with photographs of hollywood. All major attractions are close to the hotel which is an added advantage. The hotel offers a cafeteria which is open till early morning. Overall a decent hotle and a comfortable stay

"Great location, comfortable stay"

User 05/06/2016

This hotel is in a great location for the main Hollywood tourist attractions. The Walk of Fame and Chinese Theatre are within walking distance with Universal Studios a 10 minute drive away. Eateries and convenience stores are close by in addition to the on site bar and restaurant. The rooms are large and comfortable; the staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to families or small groups of friends (such as ourselves).

"Hollywood photos"

scrabbler2015, Huntingdon, United Kingdom 03/06/2016

Super large rooms but the ones on the lower floors near the conditioning are noisy. Could spend hours looking at all the photographs in the lobby and corridors plus the ones in your room. Pool area is very small with only 6 loungers. Coffee bar/restaurant is convenient and reasonably priced. The area is not the best. There are a few restaurants and a supermarket within a 5 minute walk . The Walk of Fame is not far although the first part in in quite a run down area and a bit seedy. It takes about 20 mins to walk to the Chinese and Dolby theatres. Good hotel, wrong location.

"Great location Great rooms"

saar_teboul, Netanya, Israel 24/05/2016

we visited a party of 3 friends. good location, near Hollywood BLVD, the parking is a bit pricy, 25$ a night + the tip for the valet. good rooms & bathrooms however the room is small, for a party of 3 with 3 suitcases we didn't had much space... its a good place to stay in LA & Holywood

"Time Travel to Hollywood's Heyday"

David C, Benicia, United States 23/05/2016

While unprepossessing from the outside, once you get inside the property it's like stepping back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood - pictures of stars, cozy rooms, super friendly staff. Check in was smooth and efficient and the room was a delight with a very comfortable bed, nice bathroom amenities, and (wonder of wonders!) good lighting so reading was comfortable. While we don't go to Hollywood often, this will be our go-to place. A real delight!

"Good location"

MirjamBA, Oslo, Norway 22/05/2016

The hotel is ok. The room is big. The pool-area is not all that, but it's just fine for cooling down during a warm day. The hotel is just about 10 minutes walk from Hollywood blv. The staff was friendly.

"Great hotel"

COOKIES8Perth, PERTH 20/05/2016

We shared 3 nights with another couple in one room. Very large bathroom, but no exhaust fan. We felt safe in the area. Clean rooms and comfortable. Rooms, hallways and reception all have pictures of the stars framed up on the walls Even the lift looks cool. Theres a small bar and restaurant style diner on site. We ate breakfast and dinner each day. Really enjoyed the bowl of chilli for dinner. Attentive bar and restaurant staff .Good size servings. Short 10 min walk to Vine Street train Station(where you can catch the train to Universal Studios stop, think it was 3 stops away) and Star Walk of Fame . Would stay here again.

"Two Types of Hotel in One"

linda r, Ashland, Oregon 19/05/2016

I've stayed at the Best Western on Franklin Ave in Hollywood many times, but the last couple of times were the best. The reason being that I was given rooms on both occasions in a part of the hotel that has been updated. There are two very different types of rooms here. One section of the hotel has rooms that surround a pool, the other uses the elevator just right of the check in desk. If you want a good nights sleep in a clean room be sure to ask for a room away from the pool and traffic. The restaurant 101 is great and also check out the new bar.

"Clean and convenient to Hollywood Boulevard attractions"

Outbackbadge, Tibooburra, Australia 18/05/2016

Arrived with a tour group from Australia..first impression was a standard older hotel then saw the many many pieces of Hollywood Memorabilia on the walls. Check in with any tour group is a slow process..given room card then only one small lift.. Oh well it's only a couple of floors thankfully. Room was good..two big comfortable double beds..big shower/ toilet area...good size TV.. Partial view of the iconic HOLLYWOOD sign out the rooms window. Stayed a total of four nights..found the hotel to be an iconic Hollywood hotel..amazing history with it being family owned for informing illuminated display onto a glass panel identified the Hollywood identities that have stayed or visited the hotel over the years.. The hotels diner..was a full on American diner that you have seen on TV.. Booth seating..table seating and stool seating at the bar..pretty cool. The food was good..the service was good and fast and the waitresses busy and friendly. Good clean hotel in a very dirty city..

"Friendly staff"

User 16/05/2016

About a ten minute walk to Hollywood bolivard. Nice little mini bar & great cafe style restraunt. Pool isn't the best mind very small & not much f a sun trap. Coffe making facilities & fridge in rooms.

"Great value"

ewa472016, Chicago, Illinois 16/05/2016

Great value and location. Walking distance to Sunset blvd, great restaurants. 30 min walk to Runyon Canyon. Small hotel, but pretty comfortable. Big, comfortable room and even bigger bathroom. Great little diner downstairs with big breakfast and lunch menu.

"Great lil place "

Hitesh M, Leicester, United Kingdom 15/05/2016

Excellent staff especially jo. He was really helpful with everything during our stay. Located near Hollywood boulevard so ideal for what we wanted. Cab or private shuttle to lax can cost a lot depending on traffic. Took flyaway shuttle on way back only $8 or $17 each can't remember. But a lot cheaper. Hotels own dinner is nice. Everything is traditional with a lot of history so nice. Decent room size. Hot shower but not powerful. No safe in room. View of Hollywood sign from our room which was cool.

"Nice hotel and staff"

Mark M, Salem, Oregon 14/05/2016

Stayed here for a multi-day conference and found the hotel and staff to be very nice. The location of the hotel worked perfectly for our needs with access to our meeting location and to the sights of Hollywood Boulevard. The staff met our needs whenever asked.

"First stop for 3 week USA Tour"

User 13/05/2016

I stayed here for two nights with my partner and this hotel was perfect. Arrived extremely early as our flight from Australia landed at LAX at 6:30am. Hotel staff were able to check us in as our room was ready... Thank god cos we needed a couple of hours sleep before we could do anything! Room was large, bathroom huge, comfy bed and view of the Hollywood sign from our window. Small kitchenette was handy also. Diner downstairs was convenient. Hotel staff were very helpful when we asked about different tourist things. Only negative: Our cab from LAX to hotel was $55 but our hotel transfer to LAX was $65, so might be best to cab it. We also used hotel transfer to Santa Monica for $65 but cab back cost $55. Other than that, great location and experience!

"Very nice hotel in hollywood"

Daniela M, Munich, Germany 12/05/2016

We stayes here in may for 3 nights. The hotel is so cute, unique and clean. The staff is so nice and helpful special Joey and Zbeyda, thank you. Our room was in the second house where the pool is. The room had two big bed,a little kitchen and a small bathroom. The room was very clean and housekeeping came every day. The only thing, our window was to the street and there is always trafic. If the windows are closed it's ok but you can not sleep with open windows. We went just for breakfast to the restaurant and it was great. You can get like "all in" for 8 dollars or you can get breakfast a la cart. Even in the afternoon and evening the food looks great. The hotel is very central. You just walk 5 minutes to the walk of fame and about 10 minutes to chinese theater. There you can find some restaurants and some little shops. The staff at the reception explained everything very good where we could go and what we can do. If we get back to hollywood we would stay there again.

"Not Really Sure What to Say......."

arizona_8, arizona 27/04/2016

Let me start with saying that it wasn't bad. Location was great, room was clean. No complaints there. It was all just a bit weird. I understand that it's an older hotel, but the elevator was super tiny, the bathroom in the lobby with all of its mirrored walls was definitely bizarre. I expected to have to pay for parking, so no issue there. The blackout curtains were almost a little too good, as we didn't realize what time it was in the morning, but again, no complaints. The bathroom was odd with a Christmas dish filled with cotton balls and q-tips. Yeah.....I would never use that. Then there was the shower tub, just a long, time slab with 3 shower heads. I don't know, its probably just me, but it gave me a strange feeling. The window in the bathroom needs some sort of extra tinting or something, as the light shining through early in the morning is quite blinding. Didn't get to use the pool, but the area looked cool, kind of a 60's, space age type of vibe. Like I said, no real issues that I can pinpoint, just some oddities that I personally couldn't get past that would certainly stop me from going back.

"Nice hotel & location, poor meal"

gwtmorris, Maidstone 27/04/2016

Last stop on our Route 66 journey. The hotel is nicely located and we walked back from Hollywood Blvd. after a bus tour of the town. This took about 20 minutes from the Chinese theatre. The hotel Rio. Was well appointed with a king bed, two rocking chairs, kitchenette, flat screen TV, bathroom with twin sinks and a larger shower. The bar had a singer from the rat pack era who was a highlight of the holiday, from his stories between songs it sounded as if he mixed with the Sinatra crowd during the day, and he could sing which was a bonus. We would not recommend the hotel restaurant, they keep it so dark you struggle to read the menu, I think it's also so you can't see the food. My wife and I both opted for the southern fried steak chicken, well the batter was certainly well fried (burnt) and where the chicken was I'm not sure, it must gave run away at the site of all the batter. It put us off having breakfast on the two mornings we stayed. We ate a late lunch at Mel's diner just off the Hollywood Blvd which the driver/guide recommended during the bus tour, he was right, great food at good prices. Would have given the hotel 5 stars if it wasn't for the meal, we felt it was the worst we had during our whole trip from Chicago to LA.

"We really enjoyed our stay - it was an excellent value!"

Sarah B, New York City, New York 26/04/2016

This location was a bit off the beaten path and I chose it for the distance from the hullabaloo, and we had no problems accessing mass transit. All the staff was very nice and easy going and the room was spacious and clean. The 101 Coffee Shop was really enjoyable - and completely worth it. We had a great vacation!

"Hollywood Get Away"

User 24/04/2016

Had a great time. The hotel was very clean and the front desk attendants (especially Joey) were very helpful! I loved the Hollywood decor they use too. Will use this hotel next time I'm in Hollywood for sure! Also.... Be on the lookout for stars in the lobby ;)

"It was decent"

Robb L, Merthyr Tydfil, United Kingdom 23/04/2016

We only stayed here for one night, which im kinda glad about. We had no problems with the location or the hotel but, the curtains only just covered the bottom of the window as the air conditioning unit was right under the window, so by 6am, the room was super light, which meant I was awake way before I wanted to be. We were travelling to Anaheim early in the morning, so for me it wasnt too bad. If I wanted to sleep until around 9am, I would have had no chance as it was far too light to sleep. The room was spacious and very clean, the beds were lovely and soft too. The bathroom was a nice size and the shower was lush. The hotel also had a pool which we didnt have time to use, but it looked lovely and was nice and quiet. You could walk to Hollywood Blvd in around 5 minutes and location wise we had no issues.

"Unique hotel"

Michelle I, Cypress, California 20/04/2016

Stayed out here for the weekend. I was surprised and didn't expect the hotel to be trendy and hip. It was actually a nice place with the different pics of Hollywood stars. It was also convenient to have a "mini bar" and cafe in the hotel. Overall this was a nice place to stay at and location was not far from Hollywood Blvd.

"Honeymoon "

bellgray16, Brisbane, Australia 10/04/2016

Hotel wasn't too close to Hollywood Blvd and the nicer sections and tourist part of Hollywood. Cafe 101 was good and the service there was great. Staff were friendly enough and helpful when ringing to confirm our tours etc and calling for cabs. Room was clean but smelt as if they had sprayed a whole bottle of cleaning fragrance to cover up the musty smell. Our window looked out to the highway and it was rather noisy throughout the night. Windows aren't well sealed. Cleaning trolleys were noisy as well as they went around the balconies from 7:30am. Was the last leg of our honeymoon and wasn't what I expected from LA and Hollywood. Nice enough hotel but wouldn't want to stay for much longer as there wasn't a lot to do that was close.


srose5, Indianapolis, Indiana 04/04/2016

The room was clean. The downsides are: They try to force valet parking on you at an additional charge; You are not close enough to walk anywhere; The counter girl seems to try to sell you on their restaurant and bar, great if you're 22 years old, not so much if you have your family; Pool is located in the center of all rooms, and seems to be where the drunk stupid people get loud so you cant sleep; the color of the building is gross ("yellow, pea green and blue"). People say that it is "dated", it is only the colors-Best Western and AAA have a history of being a bit conservative on colors, this is not!! The colors are what makes the place look "dated" from the 70's. No wonder the "Best Western" sign is barely visible...the hotel hard to find.. and the layout of the floors are awful...good luck if you're handicapped like me...The owners should visit other hotels in the area, and surrounding, they will find that the value is not here. Over-priced!!

"Hollywood/ The Fonda Theater "

jessd633, San Diego, California 04/04/2016

I booked this hotel because I was going to an event at the nearby Fonda Theater . This hotel was great . The staff were friendly and knowledgable about the surrounding area. There is a cafe/diner attached to the hotel. The cafe had a good selection of vegetarian dishes which is always a plus . We stayed in a room with two double beds on the third floor . The room itself was nice and updated , the bathroom was large with two sinks . We will be booking this hotel from now on for events near the walk of fame .

"Fantastic gem!"

User 03/04/2016

Quaint and cozy old style hotel! Very clean and very service oriented. Large rooms with huge bathrooms (walk in showers with bench), seating area, fridge and microwave. Hotel let us check in 5 hours early! Close to Hollywood sights but in a residential area which gives some peace and quiet. Great value! Best Western has upped it's game!

"Good location, good stay"

Leamdri, Johannesburg, South Africa 01/04/2016

This hotel is very central as it is within walking distance of the hollywood boulevard and shopping complex. The rooms were large, clean and neat and decorated with Hollywood memorabilia. Good and affordable hotel for a short stay in Hollywood.

"Outstanding "

User 31/03/2016

I totally expected a mediocre motel and what we got was a very very nice place. The staff were outstanding. Everything was nearby. Parking on site for a reasonable rate. Fantastic pool. The rooms were clean and impressive. The only issue was the noise during the night (2:00 am) from drunk inconsiderate females which I quickly resolved by confronting them and addressing their rudeness. Signs posted reminding thoughtlessly people to SHHHH! is a good idea. The environment is art-deco Miami style. Loved it, recommend it, and would stay there again! Well done Best Western Plus!

"Great Location"

jasondosvid, Toronto, Canada 30/03/2016

I mostly chose this hotel because of where it is located. Great for hiking in the hollywood hills just north of the hotel. Interesting vibe. Hollywood is a little sketchy but its central for a lot of sights and restaurants in the city. I visited in December so I didn't use the pool but definitely would have if it was warmer in LA at the time.

"Great location"

Ann Marie A, Bedminster, United States 26/03/2016

Great location. Outside appears a little dated but rooms are nice and staff provided excellent service. Good value for the money. There is valet parking and a daily parking fee of $22. Breakfast at the 101 Café is great. Good way to start your day.

"Very comfortable stay!"

Chrispy1112, London 24/03/2016

A clean and comfortable hotel 10 mins walk from Hollywood Boulevard. Large room with Kitchenette containing fridge and microwave in the room. Loved all the Hollywood pictures covering the walls. Adjoining restaurant serving good food. A supermarket and restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

"Highly Recommended"

Thomas K, Fort Collins, CO, United States 18/03/2016

Hotel that plays its Hollywood location well. Fun decor, great rooms, convenient location. The restaurant was convenient (if a little bland) and the neighboring Thai restaurant, BBQ shop and donut shot offered quick alternatives. Lyft drivers had no problem with the location, which was a perfect walking/riding springboard to our Hollywood adventures. We recently also stayed at the Farmers Daughter (in the same price range) and found the rooms at this Best Western to have better beds, more space. Would stay again.

"Boutique hotel experience"

Mark G, Grover Beach, United States 17/03/2016

We loved this Hollywood-themed hotel. We were very happy with our beautiful room, which was luxuriously large. We only stayed overnight, so we didn't get a good feel for the neighborhood, but we appreciated the easy access from the 101. On the down side we could hear the highway from our room; I'd recommend earplugs. The staff was friendly, the bed was comfortable, and the decor represents the LA scene in a fun way. I'd definitely stay here again.

"Very good value! Perfect location..."

Fernando O, Ciudad Juarez, Mexico 13/03/2016

This is a very nice hotel overall. Service at the front desk was 100, also the man in charge of the valet parking was very polite. This is a very clean hotel, with a hollywood theme that you will enjoy for sure. The price was too cheap if you think of the location, service and quality of the rooms. Pool is awesome, with a section 9ft deep. You can go walking from here to the walk of fame, which is a plus. I absolutely recommend it.

"Nice hotel"

User 10/03/2016

A nice hollywood hotel with a nice restaurant for both breakfast as well as lunch/dinner. Short walk down to walk of fame and the hop-on-hop-off busses. Nice staff at the hotel and nice hollywood decor. Extra plus for the view of the hollywood sign from our bathroom.

"Hollywood holiday"

Z5458RAleem, Lismore, Australia 06/03/2016

The hotel is very quirky with all the fantastic photos and autographs on every wall.The front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful.Loved the 101 café-great food at affordable prices (very hard working staff).Loved my room (411)-especially that there was a fridge,microwave and coffee maker.Room was spacious and also quiet.Was centrally located to all the things I wanted to see and do in Hollywood.Will definitely stay here again if I get back to Hollywood.

"Very good for the price"

DavidM_9, Townsville 05/03/2016

Very obliging staff willing to assist in any way, this also includes Cafe 101. The room was perfectly suitable and clean with great bedding. The bar area was also most pleasant. Walking distance to Hollywood Boulevard for most people. I will happily stay again.

"Little Gem "

Valentina1738, Melbourne, Australia 03/03/2016

This hotel is situated in a great location about 20 min walk from the walk of fame, a supermarket just two blocks up, and a superb diner joining the lobby which is conveniently open until 3am. The staff were so helpful and friendly with everything! There is a lot of history in this property which can be identified throughout the hotel from the lobby, to the diner and into the rooms. While some people have mentioned the rooms are dated, I found the room to be very clean. The bathroom was immaculately dressed in marble with a double shower! The cleanliness of the hotel was overall superb. The only thing I would update are the pillows in the rooms and the carpet to floorboards/tiles. I would definitely recommend and stay here again!

"Perfect location"

User 26/02/2016

Loved this place! Staff was great, rooms were very comfortable, close to freeway access, 10 minutes from universal studios. Coffee from restaurant was perfect and breakfast was pretty good too. Would definitely stay again.

"Cool hotel but quite old"

Shai Y, Miami, Florida, United States 26/02/2016

The location of the hotel is just fine, only 10 minutes walk from Hollywood Blvd. This is a relatively small hotel, but you can tell that it is old and needs to be updated - the elevator (yes there's only one) is so slowwwww, it takes good 15 seconds only for the door to close, and then substantial amount of time for each floor. Good thing there are only 4 floors. We had the best room in the house, unit 401, which is very spacious with super spacious bathroom, and a view to the famous Hollywood sign on the hills. The towels were brand new! The only thing we didn't like in our room was the AC, it was an old window unit, which was noisy and not too efficient. There's a great dinner at the hotel ground floor which offers great breakfast.

"great stay with comfy beds"

EMT999, Durham England UK 25/02/2016

Nice hotel with very comfortable beds. Quite away from walk of fame and attractions approx. 5 minute taxi ride. Parking is expensive for what appears to be the hotels own outside carpark. Lots of signed memorabilia on the walls.

"Convenient Location and Clean Rooms"

BrityBoo, San Francisco, California 24/02/2016

Great hotel for a Hollywood location. 8 minute walk (2 blocks) to the start of the Stars on Hollywood Blvd. Parking was expensive at $60 a night, so try and park off-street. Rooms very clean and modern, as the whole hotel has had a makeover. One of the oldest diners in the city is still serving food 20 hours a day, great ambience. Would stay again.


User 24/02/2016

This hotel is very easy to get to, coming from the North or the south of the 101. Once there, its a quick walk to Hollywood Blvd.(about 2 blocks) I was concerned about parking and safety of walking,but I left my car at the hotel and I felt safe during my walk to and from the attractions. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. The room was ok, nothing fancy, but very clean.

"Hidden little gem"

Anthony R, Phoenix, United States 23/02/2016

I love this hotel. We stayed here for only one night but everything was excellent. Hotel is perfect location to Hollywood attractions. It is located on a busy road but does not feel that way inside the property. Parking was always available and safe. Hotel and rooms are nicely decorated old hollywood theme and clean. Our room 405 was very large and we never heard other guest or staff . The pool is very vintage Hollywood and my kids had fun. The restaurant located in the lobby area was very tasty and very friendly staff also its open till 3am. Overall the hotel is great with a very nice and helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

"Cooler than cool in a great location"

EllenT116, New York, NY 19/02/2016

What a hoot! Kitsch abounds in this Hollywood Hills hotel. Everything was fun and worked. The decor is 50's hollywood, the diner is excellent, the staff is helpful and the location is perect, close to Hollywood. There is a pool but I didn't use it. The rooms are basic but we lived the double sink and windows in the bathroom. Can't wait to be back!

"Decent hotel in Hollywood"

FernCur, Melbourne, Australia 16/02/2016

It's a good, basic hotel for the price you pay. Rooms have dated deco and furniture, but are of a good size and are clean. Location is fine, 3 blocks up a small hill from one of the ends of Hollywood walk of fame, which isn't a nice part of it, not many places to eat around, you really will need to walk a bit further to find something other than a Starbucks. Staff is friendly and helpful. Haven't tried the restaurant or breakfast at the hotel.

"Great Location in Hollywood!"

LauraR4, Northern Ireland 15/02/2016

We were really happy with the location of this hotel as we were able to walk to the heart of Hollywood. Our room was spacious with a view of the hills and sign. Coffee was good in the coffee shop and although we didn't go in, the bar looked nice and was busy. Parking was quite expensive although we only stayed one night.

"Great place to stay and see Hollywood!"

Christopher F, san diego, United States 14/02/2016

Walked to every thing I wanted to see in Hollywood! Very Cool setting and a lot of Charm. Great rate for a nice place with a helpful staff that wasn't faking it.. They are really nice people! The restaurant has great dinner food and a hard working staff. I will definitely stay here again! Thank You! : )

"Great location to Hollywood "

User 09/02/2016

Location was fantastic. Can walk to many attractions and not far from transport. Our room was facing the motorway so was a bit noisy. Room has a microwave which helped. Flight landed early morning and was given our room at around 10.00 am. Much appreciated.

"Hipster hangout in hollywood"

SlinkyCracker, London, United Kingdom 07/02/2016

Stayed here for a few days on business. Enjoyed every minute of it. All of the communal areas are great, the 50s style pool area, the minibar bar and the 101 dinner all pull off what they are attempting. I especially like the cosy ambience in the minibar. The rooms could be better, they are clean and functional but the bathroom was small and the decor of the rooms do not really match the rest of the hotel. Over all very enjoyable and I'm sure I'll be back as it strikes a great balance between the expense of some other local hotels and cheaper options near by.

"Fun place to Stay!"

annettem71, Boulder, Colorado 06/02/2016

Stayed here with my three sisters for a night. During our stay we dined in the Cafe and had drinks in the Bar, loved the atmosphere. We all agreed our stay was FANTASTIC! We will definitely return again.

"Good hotel"

User 05/02/2016

Our first impression of the outside was a little unimpressed...BUT...when we got inside, the lobby was amazing!!! Pictures and autographs of celebs everywhere, small but classy! Pool was really nice and warm in the middle of winter, rooms were good, most of the staff were good. Upon check in, we were asked for a credit card for hotel payment even though we had already paid. After that was cleared up, she then asked for credit card for deposit, but said we'd put down a cash deposit as we don't have one. She was a little unsure on what to do, so called on someone else. Apart from that, good hotel and good location

"Great location. A little noise. Great Value"

AaronDenver, Denver, Colorado 04/02/2016

Location and pricing. Can't beat it here. Café 101 downstairs. Ask for a room on the backside, it's quitter then! Can be noisy as all the rooms face in and it's just an echo chamber. You pay $20-25 for parking. So keep that in mind. But it's SUPER convenient with the Café below and the location.

"Good Location and Staff... but hotel cuts corners and it shows."

Pasob38, San Luis Obispo County, California 04/02/2016

Pros: Great diner attached, the second room we were placed into was clean, super close to Hollywood Palladium- a short 8-10 minute walk. Upon check in, we asked if they had a room with larger beds available (we were in 2 doubles). They said they didn't have ANYTHING to move us to since they were sold out. Fair enough but they were nice about it. I do have to thank the front desk staff who moved us from the first room, otherwise we would have found accommodations elsewhere. Cons: -The first room we were placed into was on the first floor and the people above us were noisy. The refrigerator did not work, there was duct tape holding the bed skirt together on BOTH beds, the room smelled like a public bathroom (really bad), there were black marks all over the walls (it NEEDS a paint job), and the "clean" remote that Best Westerns have was NOT a clean remote. It was a standard Direct TV remote. -Upon referring all of the above problems to the front desk within 10 minutes of arriving, they offered to move us to a different room. They moved us to the top floor with 2 queens (which made me feel as though they lied to us at check in about being sold out.....) Anyway, the room smelled great, refrigerator worked, nice clean bathroom etc. BUT our room faced the on/off ramp. This would not have been a problem had the window actually had weather stripping for insulation from noise AND from the cold. Instead, the window did not close all the way which made typical LA traffic INCREDIBLY loud. Finally, at 3 AM, I actually had to put a thin shirt of mine between the window and the window frame to create a sound barrier to block out the crazy noise. This worked well, but then again, it is a shame I had to do it at all. Overall, this hotel is convenient if attending a concert in the area. Front desk kind of depends on who you get but generally they are nice, the rooms are either hit or miss it looks like. This hotel definitely takes short cuts to cut costs and it shows (it needs paint, bed skirts held with duct tape, no weather stripping in the windows). A little insane since rooms run $150-$200.

"Best Best Western"

DrumNBass, Mumbai (Bombay), India 25/01/2016

Beautifully decorated with autographed pics, vinyl records and other hollywood memorabilia all over the walls and the rooms, this very tastefully done up hotel is the nicest looking best western I've seen. After being greeted very cheerfully by a gentleman at the reception, we were quickly checked in, even though we arrived pretty early in the morning. We were even given a map and were told about all the interesting things to do and see around the area. The location is really nice with the Hollywood Walk of Fame just a few mins walk away. Like I mentioned earlier, our room was done up in keeping with the Hollywood theme with framed pictures and vinyl records (seen better in the pics attached). The room had a nice bed, coffee machine, microwave, desk, TV and an alarm clock. Unfortunately I can't remember what the view from the room was. There is very nice diner located adjacent to this hotel and we came back for breakfast even after we had checked out a week ago. I can't remember the timings, but I think it was open till pretty late at night. Would definitely recommend this place, especially at the price it usually goes for.

"Hollywood Hills Neighborhood stay"

Carol K, San Francisco, United States 24/01/2016

Easy location, but the hotel parking is expensive. Lovely staff. The new bar/lounge is retro- charming. The rooms have flair, but could use some refreshing. The commons places are fun but also need some maintenance -stairwells feel dirty.

"Great hotel but beware of valet parking"

scraggyaggie, Gillingham, United Kingdom 18/01/2016

We had a lovely time here. The rooms and corridors were decorated with movie memorabilia which made it very interesting moving around the hotel. We had hoped for a room overlooking the Hollywood sign as we booked well in advance but were disappointed to face a wall. When mentioning this on check out the reception said they would have been happy to have moved us if we had said, and I must say they did seem pretty genuine. Sunset Boulevard and the Chinese theatre are in walking distance but those with restricted mobility may wish to consider a hotel nearer to the town as it is quite a steep walk back up to the hotel, I for one wouldn't want to push a wheelchair back up the hill. As smokers we asked if they had a smoking area and the lady in the diner said 'no' we would have to go to a bar or hotel further up the road which we did. We also found out when we checked out that they do in fact have a covered smoking area, which we could have used along with the hotel bar rather than spend our money else where. The dining and bar staff were also friendly, but bar prices were as steep as the hill we had to walk up so any went into the bar once. We would definitely recommend the hotel and will visit again HOWEVER BEWARE THE VALET PARKING: When we arrived the car park was empty and parked our YUCON xl rental in one of the larger parking bays on the same side as the valet desk, the valet who assisted us with our cases seemed keen to help loading our many cases and assisting us to the lobby. However when we went out that evening it had been moved right onto the corner of the road that takes you down to the underground car par. To say we were not happy is an understatement. The valet who had replaced him I can't recall his name was a delightful gentleman from the Philippines who did everything in his power to rectify the problem and was able to move a few cars around to get us to a parking spot of safety. He was also confused as to why our rental had been moved when the car park was empty when we arrived. I must add that there were porches a Lamborghini and other high end vehicles perfectly parked in the car park. In the morning the original valet was in the car park and when I asked him why he had parked our care where he did when the car park was empty his reply was "I can park it where I like, I am not breaking the law" He then went on to screech at me to "come look come look" it was ok where it was. He was rude and obnoxious and not a good advert for the service on offer. In my opinion he moves cars out of the way as soon as he can to get more tips. When we stay next time I will seek alternative parking before parking my car here. The hotel informed me that the car park itself is leased out to a different party and not in their control

"Nice, particularly for the price"

TomandJC, Chesapeake, Virginia 14/01/2016

A nice spot to stay at in the west Hollywood area. It has a lot going for it, including: 1. Location. I literally looked out at the Hollywood sign out my window. Walking distance to lots, One block up from Hollywood Blvd. two blocks from Sunset Blvd. Down Franklin within walking distance you have restaurants, a great place for a morning coffee and a grocery store. Close to Griffith Park as well. 2. Price is good, particularly for the area. 3. Great staff, I accidentally left a valuable item in the desk when we checked out, they called me immediately. Also super friendly throughout the stay. 4. Comfy beds and pillows. Room can be as nice as you want, but if the bed sucks, it's no fun. 5. A coffee shop in the building. Good food. 6. A cool little bar in the building. 7. A zillion channels of DirecTV. It's a Best Western, so it's not the fanciest, but I was very happy with my stay and would recommend and stay there again.

"Best Western Hollywood Hills Lives Up To Reputation"

Lenmajzlin, Palm Springs, California 08/01/2016

My wife and I have been using this hotel for over 25 years. Our trips to LA have been always enhanced by the funky, delightful nature of the Hollywood Hills Hotel, whose owners and decor still reflect a love affair with the golden days of Hollywood. Corny as it may appear, the hotel captures a combination of 1950s aesthetic and Hollywood memorabilia fascination. Photos of stars abound in the halls, in the rooms, in the lobby, echoing the ever-present popular power of our American icons. The Brits have their royalty; we have our movie stars. So staying at a clean, comfortable, roomy, convenient, friendly, reasonably priced hotel that exudes joy about its location is always a plus. And the 101 Coffee Shop off the lobby is tops for breakfast, lunch or dinner or snacks any time of day or night. The hotel's new watering hole/lounge/bar is an added attraction. And half a block from the freeway is about as convenient as it will ever get in a city totally dependent on auto transportation. Family friendly, children and pet-friendly, the Hollywood Hills Best Western can't be beat. (The valet parking can rack up the bill if you're staying a loner while, so you might want to park yourself.)

"Interesting night!"

5Hawkeyes, Iowa 05/01/2016

First the hotel is really cool. The pictures on the walls of all the celebrities are very cool. It's an older hotel they've done an incredible rennovation on. The room we had was really nice. Nice big beds, the bathroom was huge, with a fridge and microwave. Also a very nice flatscreen TV. We were there on New Year's eve so it was very busy. And the noise from other guests during out stay will be attributed to the timing and not the hotels fault. I would highly recommend this hotel if you're planning a stay in Hollywood. It was so close to the Hollywood walk of fame, Chinese Theatre, and many other tourist spots. The Hollywood sign is right out the back door and it's only 5 minutes from Universal Studios. Uber was great from here.

"Great stay!"

DMulan, Austin, Texas 03/01/2016

Great place! Excellent location - 10 mins to the walk of fame. Friendly staff, good rooms and you can get a really good breakfast at the diner downstairs. The entire place is decorated with signed celebrity photos - quite the Hollywood feel!

"Hidden gem"

Frank M, Murrieta, California 31/12/2015

This is a great hotel in the heart of the crazy hollywood area. the room was great roomy clean very big bathroom and a mini fridge setup that was better than my college house. this is a new spot to be a regular stay when in the hollywood area. parking self vs valet is the same price and if you call down your car is ready at the front door when you step off the elevator. the on site cafe is great. the people all over the hotel make you feel welcome at 3am 9am and 3pm .

"Excellent stay again"

CMF71, Townsville, Australia 30/12/2015

We arrived from Australia early and prior to us checking in, I emailed asking about the possibility of an early check in. Correspondence directly with the hotel was excellent. Upon arrival at the hotel, our requested room was available and the front desk assistance was excellent. We even got the room where you could see the Hollywood sign which was a bonus and appreciated. I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now when visiting the USA and staying in LA and like its location and service. I have always found the people at the hotel very helpful.


User 26/12/2015

This is a classy place to stay among the stars. The room was large, with enough space for our family and very clean. Everyone enjoyed looking at the photographs of the movie stars and being close to local attractions.

"Classic Hollywood, great locale, nice rooms, good cafe"

kmaFL, Bratt, Florida 25/12/2015

Great throwback to classic Hollywood. I loved the old photos, etc. on the walls. We had to wander each floor (and the stairwells!) to see it all. Good location, just a few blocks from Grauman's Theater. We could see the Hollywood sign from our room. The parking was tight but we always had a spot. Both self parking and valet were $20. The café had a pretty decent selection at reasonable (less than average hotel) prices. The chicken salad, chowder, burgers and desserts were all great. Our room was spacious (we had a corner room). The beds were nice with ample pillows for everyone. There was a lot of space for our suitcases (2 luggage racks!). Heat/ac was responsive and reasonably quiet. The shower head was high enough to get under and had great pressure. And the shower and bathroom in general had a lot of space for our things. But we only got three towels. Each day we had to go down and ask for a fourth towel. The luggage carts were readily available, but they were a challenge to get into the small elevator. The staff was competent and friendly. I would certainly stay here again.

"A solid option"

User 24/12/2015

A comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a good diner next door and nice bar downstairs. The gym and pool are good facilities. It's fairly convenient, within easy walking distance to Hollywood walk of fame, Madame Tussaud's etc. although the walk felt a little unsafe at night. The cab fare from the airport at 4pm cost $100 so I would recommend finding another way there if you are coming in the afternoon!

"A disappointing stay"

Murray H, Toronto, Canada 24/12/2015

Sorry to say, we had a disappointing stay. The hotel is newly renovated, quaint & close to Hollywood Blvd. Our visit was plagued with a number of minor issues, such as TV not working, noise from the bar downstairs, very noisy aircon, traffic etc. We did get a free breakfast for our troubles, but still did not enjoy our stay. The trendy bar downstairs has great promise, but the barman insisted on having the music on max. We asked him to turn it down slightly & he did. Then he proceeded to ask customers to say things twice because he could not hear them (& vice versa). Regardless, a good hotel, but not as close to Hollywood amenities as you would think.

"Great location for the Hollywood sites"

mbkris, Hollywood, Florida 22/12/2015

The location of the hotel was great. It is within walking distance to Hollywood stars and the Chinese Theatre you also get a nice view of the Hollywood sign from the area. I had car and I thought that the location was a good central area for the sites I went to see. My only complaint was that I thought the windows are not very well insulated because my room was on third floor and I could hear people and noises outside my window.

"A perfect vacation ending at the Best Western!"

Jose F. R, New Port Richey, Florida 21/12/2015

We were on an extended vacation in LA after a cruise and stayed at this Best Western Plus. From the spacious rooms to the awesome service, the hotel was beyond expectations. The decor in the room and the lobby just screams Hollywood and I loved it! The employees were helpful and professional. The only issue I had was the required valet parking fee of $20 a day when my car was parked 3 spaces from the door. Overall though it is a wonderful hotel.

"hollywood stay"

Lisa K, Mississauga, Canada 17/12/2015

I am very happy with my stay...the staff were great and friendly. The room was comfort and the kitchenette came in handy since we ate our breakfast in our room ...the restaurant located on the hotel property was very expensive. I loved bring close to the hollywood SIgn it was great knowing that it was less than a 2 mins walk.

"Great location, reasonable price"

AC C, Stavanger, Norway 16/12/2015

The location is really good, pretty much short driving/ walking distance to most of the attractions and the price per night is reasonable. The room size is sufficient as well. Those are the positive things of this hotel. On the not-so-positive side for me is probbaly the bathroom, it is kind of old and it is needed an upgrade plus the parking fee is 22 US/ day inside the hotel while there are plenty parking spots for over night outside the hotel. Most of tourists probably don't need day parking, so, it is really up to you. Carport sometimes takes a bit more time but people who work there are nice.Overall, it is a nice hotel.

"What a excellent location !"

J0lantaT, Melbourne, Australia 15/12/2015

Yes , what a excellent location ! Very convenient to get anywhere in LA , with valet parking ( I think $20 a day ). Big , clean ,quiet room with huge comfortable bathroom . Wonderful , friendly and very helpful staff .And also walking distance to local restaurants ( quite good and not to expensive) and also nice supermarket, where you can buy all groceries and you can dine too . Yes they selling nice and not very expensive hot food , and is few tables outside where you can enjoy your meal.I like the most pizza by Wolfgang Pluck and salad from deli department. Anyway next time when I'm in LA that the hotel I'm staying. Thank you all staff from Best western for enjoyable stay , and I hope to see you soon !

"Nice but needs a little work"

Amanda P, Perth, Australia 15/12/2015

On first impressions, the hotel was cute, but the gentlemen (Max) that was on the front desk wasn't very helpful, he seemed to be very confused and told us off because we were "supposed" to be there the night before, but in fact I had correspondence with one of his colleagues stating that we will be arriving around 7am and would like to check in when we get there, due to our long flight from Australia, so I booked the room from the night before to guarantee its availability. On the second day of being there we went down stairs and asked Max to call for one of our tours and make sure it was all booked in and confirmed, the next day when we were supposed to go on the tour, the tour guide called and Max told them, that there was no one staying there by that name. So if you are going to ask them to confirm anything, ask one of the other helpful gentlemen that work there. Besides those few incidences, the hotel was lovely, the room was spacious and the bathroom was nice, the only thing I would criticise would be the lift, It was a bit scary at times. The location of the hotel is great, its easy to get to places and I would highly recommend their driver Eunice, she got us out of a messy situation (ask the front desk, where to go and where not to go).

"The best hotel stay I've had in a while."

RestlessRebecca, Brooklyn, New York 15/12/2015

I love the vibe of this place. Very chill and kinda old Hollywood.The staff was friendly. Check in was quick. The new bar downstairs is CUTE! And the good ol' 101 Coffee Shop is open until 3am (yay!) which came in handy after a night out. I can usually find SOMETHING to complain about when I stay at a hotel. Especially because the price I paid is usually not representative of the quality of the room I receive. So I was SHOCKED when my $150 room was so fantastic! It had windows on 2 sides (corner room 202), a small kitchenette with coffee maker and microwave, a nice TV, very comfortable bed, a sitting area, a full length mirror on the closet doors, a HUGE bathroom with two sinks and lots of cool old Hollywood posters/photographs. I was really pleased! It was a first. The only slightly negative thing was that the water in the shower took forever to get hot. Not a deal breaker. Love this place. Will stay here again.


Ben_blt, London, England, United Kingdom 14/12/2015

Nice motel style hotel with friendly staff and great location. Only slight issue was people making noise around 3am for most nights we were there even though we were on the top floor at the back. View of the Hollywood sign from the bathroom window.

"Quality Stay & Great Value"

nohea2187, Aiea 14/12/2015

Everything about this hotel was great. Our room was bigger than we expected. The bathroom was bigger than expected. Only the shower head lacked water pressure and we had a window in the shower that could not close securely so it was a bit drafty. Having a restaurant attached to the hotel was great but do not eat the Spinach salad with warm bacon dressing, the dressing is the oil from frying bacon (completely gross). The elevator is small and awkwardly shaped but we managed. I enjoyed my stay.

"An affordable gem walking distance to shops, restaurants, and Hollywood Blvd!"

Keridwyn R, Emeryville, California 07/12/2015

This hotel was such a great find and will definitely be my go-to for future Hollywood trips.The staff was great, the rooms clean and inviting, and the area comfortable. Before even getting to the hotel, I was happy with the staff. I made the original reservation using a discount code and it couldn't be canceled or altered - I needed to add a night and the hotel was really nice about making sure that the two reservations would have notes or something letting staff know they were connected. I was worried we may have to change rooms or there would be confusion with staff, but it was all good. The hotel was so nice about us checking in late and dealing with the valet was really easy. Note: People who are upset that parking is valet only and/or costs $20 - it's not a secret! You can find that price anywhere so it's not a "hidden fee" - you just weren't looking and want something to be upset about. Parking in L.A. can be awful so $20 for my car to be safe and for me to not have to hunt for a spot, I'm ok with that. Our friends who came by to have lunch with us and carpool to the event we were in town for seemed to have an easy time finding street parking nearby as well, which was great. We ended up with an accessible room with a huge bathroom. Everything was clean and comfortable. I loved having the little kitchen area and in the bathroom, the lighting was great for doing makeup! And two sinks is amazing. My only complaint is having no toilet seat made me constantly worry I was going to drop something while I was getting ready, like my makeup or worse, my phone. We didn't visit the diner downstairs but it made the lobby smell delicious every time we walked through. Wi-Fi was surprisingly fast for free hotel wi-fi - Netflix was no problem!! Housekeeping was really annoying throughout our stay though, that's my only big complaint. We had the do not disturb sign up yet had to turn away multiple housekeepers again and again. It took me going to the front desk to have a staff member tell them to leave us alone for us to get some quiet in the morning. Overall though, the stay was great. Check-in and check-out were both a breeze. The hotel is cute and has a lot of character with the celebrity photos in the rooms. Everything was close too! We walked to get breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and could walk Hollywood Blvd. as well. For the price, this place is absolutely perfect for Hollywood trips!

"Wrong room provided, unpleasant smell in room"

Tony L, Toronto, Canada 07/12/2015

Booked a king room directly from Best Western, but got a queen room with accessible bathroom. Hotel staff disputed with us until we showed them our email confirmation with the king room, but still they did not give us the correct room because they were overbooked. All they did was give us free parking, which they say "more than compensates" for the mistake, but that was not what we wanted. A later email to Best Western was forwarded to the hotel's management, which again dismissed our complaint and said the free parking more than compensates for the mistake. I'm very disappointed with how Best Western handled this situation. The rooms also had a very unpleasant smell. I would avoid this hotel overall.

"Honeymoon! "

TheEllerys, Plymouth, United Kingdom 07/12/2015

We stayed here for 4 nights in our America tour for our honeymoon. Great size room and beds were comfy. Few tiny downsides tho, the bar was very expensive, $6 for a watered down beer! We stayed mid November and the sun was low in the sky so the pool never got touched by the sun which was sad as the weather was lovely and we wanted to lay out in it! The photo of Bill Cosby on the wall was slightly inappropriate lol 5 min walk to the Hollywood strip but I wouldn't recommend walking there or back at night time, wasn't pleasant at all!!!!

"Great staff and great hotel!"

Littledrummergirl_md, Broadbeach, Australia 07/12/2015

I stayed here with my folks for a total of 5 nights. I stayed from 22nd nov - 25th nov in a double room with 2 double beds. And because of the great experience, instead of looking for another hotel after flying back from san francisco, we decided to stay another night on 2nd december before flying back to australia. The room is quite spacious with a huge bathroom. Room has fridge, microwave and coffee. There's also free wi fi. Great location if you plan to see hollywood blvd, walk of fame. The restaurant cafe 101 has great staff and open for breakfast up to around 2am. Special thanks to Jeffrey at front desk for a wonderful service, very helpful and accomodating. He arranged our LA city tour which was great and he also helped me in keeping my luggage. I left one of my luggages for a week without any extra charge. He also organised our transfer to the airport. All the other staff are very helpful with carrying our luggages and also we brought some fresh fish and asked then to put it in their freezer and they helped us with this as well. I highly recommend this hotel and i defnitely will stay here again when i visit LA. Thank you once again and keep up the good work!

"Great Location, Great Hotel"

User 02/12/2015

We stayed here as part of a road trip around California for 3 nights. The hotel itself is situated perfectly to start the Hollywood walk of fame, just 5 minutes walk away, and very good value for money. The rooms were clean and spacious and were decorated in a quirky way. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and were full of knowledge of where to go and what to do with your time there. We caught the hop on hop off bus 15 minutes walk away and found this was the cheapest and most effective way to see all of LA and Beverly hills with the least amount of time. We also received free tickets to Madam Tussauds when you bought a 48hour bus ticket. The hotel restaurant was ok, however we found plenty of other places, some a lot cheaper, to have breakfast so only ate there once. Overall great hotel, which we would definitely stay in again.

"Lovely hotel"

User 30/11/2015

Stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel is in a great location, only a few minutes walk to Hollywood boulevard. Rooms were comfortable, there was a fridge and microwave. We only used the 101 diner once for dinner and it was nice, the other times, we just bought cereal and milk from the local store. There is free wifi which is good, corridors were bright and clean. Staff were friendly, they booked us a taxi to universal studios and booked the LA city tour, which, by the way was fantastic - a great way to see LA! All in all a lovely hotel within easy reach to the main sights, had a great time in LA and if i came again i would probably choose this hotel:-)


Randy S, Los Angeles, United States 30/11/2015

This hotel is fantastic. Quiet, clean, economical, well appointed, great location. The staff is lovely but not obtrusive, the neighborhood is basically residential but you're still close to many activities. The restaurant has a variety of types of food and the new bar is quite festive.

"Clean and Comfortable, Great Value"

geezersgirl, Santa Ynez, California 29/11/2015

My husband and I stayed here due to the proximity to Kaiser Hospital where our grandson was born. We ended up searching Trip Advisor when we were at the hospital waiting for baby to arrive so it was a last minute reservation. Based on reviews we chose this hotel. It is a remodeled old motel that has tons of charm and big clean comfy rooms. We managed to get a great rate on the Best Western website. Our room was third floor in the back building and was super quiet. Some of our family stayed in the front section and said it was a little noisy. The location is great. You are close enough to walk to Hollywood and Highland and are just across the street from the landmark Hollywood Towers. There are several restaurants in the area and the awesome Cafe 101 is attached to the hotel. The staff is amazing! They helped us secure taxis when the little man decided to arrive at 2 am and gave us all late check outs. Great stay!

"Excellent location ??"

CosANDLou, London, United Kingdom 28/11/2015

This location has an excellent location as per the title. From here you can explore LA really well. The rooms and layout is a bit 'out doors ie' but none the less has a really good feel about it. The rooms were a little of the small size to accommodate are needed for example 2 large open suit cases for people of the move. The staff were 'extremely' helpful. They assisted with everything we asked for within their means. They were friendly and generally nice people to have a chat with. There is car parking available here and a small restaurant. All in all - we like the look and feel of the hotel. I hope this helps! Best, Cos

"I will definitely stay here again"

Bonnie A, California 23/11/2015

I was recently in LA for the weekend and needed a hotel in close proximity to my son's soon to be college. We live in California and are very familiar with the area, so I figured it would be easier to get a hotel close to the school so we could walk to the open house without the hassle of looking for parking in downtown Los Angeles. I did a lot of research and found this Best Western location was a perfect fit location wise. I have been to Los Angeles many times and am very picky when it comes to hotels, especially in Hollywood. First off, the hotel itself is in a GREAT location. If you have never been to Hollywood and are looking to see the main sights, many of the are literally within walking distance, as the hotel is located parallel to Hollywood Blvd. If you have been there before, it is very convenient to be able to come at go whichever mode of transportation you choose. The area is pretty safe to walk back and forth if you don't want to deal with looking for parking in downtown Los Angeles. We took a late flight, so we got to the hotel around 11:30 p.m. and we walked into a bright lobby with courteous, pleasant and quite knowledgeable staff. Our check in and check out was extremely quick and easy. When I mean quick, I mean literally under 5 minutes. The hotel was clean and our room was extremely clean, comfortable, very convenient to get to and quite roomy. Our room was located right by the elevator and was extremely quiet at all times. We did not have to deal with noisy guests even once. Our room had 2 queen beds, free WI-FI, cable TV, a walk in shower with Jack and Jill sinks and several other furnishings that made it very quaint. We had a perfect view of the Hollywood sign right outside our window. One thing I really liked was the bedding. They don't have those "not sure if you've been washed" type comforters on their beds. The bedding was very clean, comfortable and simple. You can smell the cleanliness on them which was a giant plus in my book. Our room also has a complimentary magazine that gave a ton of information about the local sights and restaurants. Although we are familiar with the area, it still came in quite helpful when trying to get in as much as we could for the weekend. Rooms have plenty of outlets for charging phones, laptops, etc. and we liked that you could open the windows to get fresh air in if you don't want the AC on. They also have a bar and separate diner right on the property that is open from 6 am to 3 am and serves anything on the menu anytime. A plus for people that are up very early or very late. The food was good and you get a lot for your money. The portions are pretty big. They have mandatory valet parking for $20.00 a day if you park your car on their property, which I would recommend. The only thing that was a little uncomfortable, was not knowing if the gentlemen that provided the car service were solely paid on tips or not. We were on a budget for this trip, so I couldn't offer much in the way of tipping and I would only say that if the valet's are not paid from the $20.00 daily parking fee, maybe the cost could be a little less to allow people on a budget to be able to tip them sufficiently. Otherwise, I honestly don't have one complaint about this hotel. As a frequent traveler, I know how important it is to be able to get great quality at a good price. I will definitely stay here again and will continue to recommend it to people looking for a clean, safe, comfortable place to stay in the Hollywood area.

"Great Location and Cute Hotel"

Janelle H, Las Vegas, Nevada 20/11/2015

The hotel is located about an 8 minute walk from Hollywood & Vine and easily accessible to the 101. The hotel is very cute and clean with fun decorations of old Hollywood stars. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. It's a wonderful getaway hotel!!

"Good location "

Alaa E, Ammanford, United Kingdom 15/11/2015

This property is in a good location if you are interested in walk of fame and universal studios. Walk of fame is just few minutes walking distance and universal studios is only around 10 m. Away by car. If you dont have a car u can order an Uber it will cost you to iniversal studios about $10. Staff are helpful amd even the hotel owner who refunded me when I had to change my stay from 4 nights to only one night for some circumstances. He was polite and proffessional and I like to see more of these people while travelling. Room and bathroom are clean, however the corridor and the room it self was a bit dark. I was allocated a room in the 4rth floor.

"Good hotel. Valet not so great"

afranklin3, Lexington, Kentucky 09/11/2015

Great service & room until my rental car came out of the garage with a large scratch. Would visit again maybe with only parking myself. Cafe 101 was a great spot to visit. Location was perfect short walk to Hollywood Blvd.

"Great Location!!"

SweetSmile17, Guelph, Canada 07/11/2015

We liked this hotel for a lot of reasons!! 1. We arrived early and they let us check in early!! Was nice to get changed and head out to see Hollywood Blvd 2. The staff on the desk were very helpful and giving us directions and also tips to great restaurants and entertainment that we would have never found on our own! 3. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfy after a long day sight seeing!! 4. Check out was easy breezy!! 5. Cafe 101 has great coffee although the male server that was there that day was a little grumpy! Didn't bother us as we had a whole day of fun a head! 6. The price was great for the area and like I said located so close to main attractions! I would for sure stay here again if I am ever in Hollywood!!

"Nice and friendly"

User 05/11/2015

We stayed 4 nights and the four of us shared one room with 2 queensized beds. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was helpful and nice. We had breakfast at the diner in the same house and it was good food and nice staff. We got the only room with a view of the Hollywoodsign. The only things that wasn't great is that the aircondition was to loud to have going during the night so it got a bit hot and the insolation between the rooms were a bit thin. That wasn't a problem until the neighbors desided to watch tv on pretty high volym. Then we had a little bit trouble to fall asleep. Also there were some homeless in the area but they didn't bother us at all even when passed so over all a good visit and I would come back.

"Great hotel"

User 05/11/2015

Great hotel! I was there to visit family in the area for five nights. The staff was great, and the cafe was convenient and had good food. The valet service was quick. Interesting decor, and comfortable bed. Quiet hotel, even though it is on a fairly busy street and near the 101.

"Great location, great service, amenities galore!"

glam72, Oakland, California 02/11/2015

My boyfriend and I stayed here a week ago Saturday and we loved it. We were on our way down to Disneyland and planned an overnight in LA but waited til the last minute to find accommodations. Nearly every place I looked at was either sold out or really expensive, for whatever reason. I had been to the diner here before so knew this was a cute hotel in a great location, near everything we wanted to do. Unfortunately, the rate was nearly double what it was the night prior to our stay but still more reasonable than anything else. We had a room on the first floor right near the pool and it was very spacious and nice, and had we been there more than one night the little kitchen area would have been a great bonus! We took full advantage of the Minibar (the bar in the hotel), the pool, and the diner. all great. Easy access to everything we wanted to do, the staff were all nice and the retro decor was MUCH appreciated. I could find only two negatives with this hotel: 1.) some of the other hotel guests were REALLY loud in the morning, right outside our door. I'm basing this on the close proximity of the rooms, and our room being right near the stairs. 2.) We had to valet our car, at a rate of $20 a day, but we were a little perplexed at how often to tip the valet. We only took the car out once during our stay, but felt we had to tip each time we had interaction with the valet (when we initially parked, when we took it out, when we brought it back, when we left, etc). Need to learn the protocol on that. Otherwise, I would definitely stay here again!

"Good Location"

Sindy B, Nottingham, United Kingdom 31/10/2015

Stayed here to end our American trip. Location was good as you could walk to the Hollywood walk of fame and restaurants. Very close to Universal Studios. Room was okay, Kitchen area was a bonus, nice and clean. Air conditioning was very very noisy but needed to use as room was very hot, room had no view and was quite claustrophobic. Internet access was very poor, reception staff stated we should use at less busy times which was a poor excuse!!! Probably would not stay here again, had to pay extra 20 dollars per night for parking, very average.

"good location"

Jose S, Arizona, United States 29/10/2015

this hotel is in a great location. 10 minute walk to hollywood walk of fame. the 101 restaurant was excellent and very helpful to have close. would stay here again next time in LA. love the hollywood feel the hotel has.

"Nice again, best deal in Hollywood"

kjake2004, Topton, Pennsylvania 28/10/2015

4th time staying here, and every time it is great. Best deal going in Hollywood, pretty near everything. Would probably want to drive to the major attractions, but very close to Hollywood/Vine, Capital Record building. Great staff, great decor. Parking is valet on the premisis, (20.00 extra per day I believe). Very cool coffee shop attached to Hotel, and a small bar on the main floor. Love staying here!

"Birthday Celebration"

Mercedes V, South Gate, United States 26/10/2015

My husband and I stayed at this Best Western, for a night of celebrating one of my co-workers Birthday in the Hollywood area. This is a very nice hotel, about two miles from the main Hollywood scene. I would stay here again, however they need to make sure they, whatever availability is begging advertise on their website is correct with what the front desk is saying. I could have saved at least $45.00 on my stay, if both the online reservation and front desk personal were both in sink.


User 25/10/2015

The location of the hotel was great. We could see the Hollywood sign from the car park area of the hotel. The room that we had was right next to pool so it was quite noisy early in the morning with kids playing in the pool. The hotel has got a very retro 50s deco.

"Best western north la"

Hollywoodmick, Melbourne, Australia 22/10/2015

Not a bad hotel quite old but clean and tidy Great pictures throughout the hotel Shower pressure very average but was ok Tad far from Hollywood strip but good exercise Price for the au dollar 500 odd for 2 nights quite richy but nothing's cheap really in la

"Could be great if they made simple changes."

Craig K, Davis, United States 22/10/2015

Brassy, Hollywood-style hotel. Could be great but isn't. Room was too warm until I figured out that the heavy curtains were blocking the air conditioning air from adequately cooling the room. Bed wasn't firm enough and mattress was oddly thick. TV remote required me to get too close to the TV --- it was disposable type but batteries were weak and I didn't want to hassle desk about it even by phone because in middle of night the room was dark and I didn't want to wake my wife. Housekeepers should check the remotes every day.


User 19/10/2015

The hotel is very retro like stepping back into the 50's. Very good location close to very thing that was Hollywood. Good value for what you paid in the area. It is clean & comfortable. The only thing is about the limited parking space & cost

"Proper Motel type hotel, quirky and highly recommended"

Paula T, Poole, United Kingdom 17/10/2015

First impressions when we arrived quite late weren't good. There was a bad smell in the lobby and our air con was off so it was very hot. Next day I was very excited to see the Hollywood sign behind me in the bathroom mirror! From there on we grew fond of the place. The staff were all helpful. The hotel design was built around an open air pool and there was a 'proper' Hollywood diner on the ground floor. The gym was small and air con didn't work first 2 days, they did get this fixed. Will stay again.

"Good place, Great location, with friendly staff and tasty food, and amazing value for money"

Nick C, Mangawhai, New Zealand 16/10/2015

At the end of our trip round California, we were delighted to have our best stay yet. Friendly helpful staff and 101 is a cool place to eat and drink without having to walk anywhere. Bit of a walk to `The Chinese Theatre`, but it was a hot day with two tired children. The pool, although small, was still fun as it went from 3foot to 9foot deep, so we had fun with the kids in that. Rooms were big and tidy too (at least 415 was), not necessarily a great view but we did have a view of the Hollywood sign from ours. One letter partly obscured by a tree though. Would definitely stay again. And if you need a shuttle/driver, ask for `Fred the Driver` knowledgeable and friendly and good value.

"Everything you need for a Hollywood stay on a budget"

John Russell R, Sellersville, PA, United States 16/10/2015

We chose the BW Plus in Hollywood because in researching options for our trip to Hollywood, it seemed to offer all the basics that we were looking for and at a feasible cost. When we arrived, we learned that it was even closer to the AMDA school than we thought, as well as being within walking distance of most everything else you would want to do during a visit there. Hotel has a pool, an exercise room (which apparently is new), and is adjacent to the 101 Coffee Shop, which is a very good restaurant at which we ate several times. We were able to walk to every place that we wanted to or needed to visit. Staff were helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

"Great location"

User 15/10/2015

The hotel looks better than the photos which was a bonus. We stayed in a lovely, luxury style room. Corridors and rooms are filled with pictures/ autographs from different films which was interesting. Location is great, just up the road from the walk of fame - although we weren't really fans of LA!

"midweek in hollywood"

chelseaPhoenix, phoenix 14/10/2015

hotel was clean beds were good staff were good fast and we got our rooms really quick nice bar net door open until three which is great only thing i did not like twenty dollars to park in there car park rip off considering the room was $180 a night but it is only a short walk to everything

"Fun night in Hollywood"

lmr13, new york city 07/10/2015

We selected the hotel because of the convenient location to the Hollywood Bowl. The nice staff checked us in and though we are quite familiar with the area they did offer suggestions about activities around the location. Our room 202 was great . Large room with sitting area and a big bath with double sinks always a plus . The Godfather was our main movie theme in the room we occupied and though fake, the machine gun was slightly creepy, not a big deal but a little worried I might get a horror movie theme in the future . Breakfast downstairs is an option . Nothing fancy , but nice to support something that's been able to survive decades in Hollywood

"A great hidden Gem!"

Jose D, Chula Vista, United States 30/09/2015

This hotel is quite deceiving; hidden within other buildings in the area, the hotel appears to be "just another" old building. However, from the moment you step in, you are taken by the great Hollywood decor, cleanliness and dedicated staff. The service was great from the parking lot, reception desk to our room. The room was quite spacious and clean; to my surprise, it had a mini kitchen and very large bathroom. The diner, opened till 3am, served some great :diner: food; especially the breakfast. Just 2 miles from Universal, highly recommend staying here

"Best kept secret in Hollywood."

Sare A, New York City, New York 24/09/2015

Ive stayed here many times in the past, the most recent being for 2 nights back in Jan of 2015. Staff was kind and very efficient. My room was big, clean and decorated in movie memorabilia. Restaurant downstairs has good food and I enjoyed their breakfast. Valet Parking is available and Wifi is free. Not too far from the Hollywood walk of fame. Ill definetly stay here again when im in L.A.

"Looking for a hotel which is accessible to the stars??"

User 20/09/2015

We have had a room here for 4 days as part of a mini tour of California. All in all the hotel is a safe option, great location to the Hollywood walk of fame and main tourist areas (10 minute walk) easy access to the freeway should you need it and a decent standard room. We had a mini ( it was small) kitchen area with fridge coffee maker and cupboards. Room we had was a good size with two double beds large bathroom, massive TV! Downside of the room was noisy air con unit ( seemed too small for the room as was never really cool) and intermittent Wi-Fi. Pool area was small but ok if you needed to swim and the hotel had a restaurant and bar area ( didn't eat or drink there as always out and about. If you need a hotel close to the sites then this isn't bad. Worth shopping around as you may get better prices but locations may not be accessible. Off to Palm Springs Hard Rock Hotel so will review that shortly.

"weekend getaway"

Nicole O, El Paso, Texas 15/09/2015

We arrived on Friday, August 28th, and checked out, Monday August 31st. I used to live in LA, and preferably wanted to stay in Hollywood, and nearby the subway station.The hollywood and vine station is only a couple blocks away from the hotel. We were able to travel to universal city walk from hollywood and vine, which was very convenient. As far as the staff goes, there was a man by the name of Derek at the front desk who was very helpful. He allowed us to check out late (12:30pm) and he held our bags for us on the check out day till about 4pm. Also, Isela allowed us to check in early the day we arrived. Check in isn't till 3 pm, but they allowed us to check in by 12 pm. We stayed in a king room, very big, fridge, and bar top, tv, and decent size bathroom. Bed was very comfortable, and it was decorated with hollywood memorabilia. Overall, the staff was very friendly, and were very welcoming. We will be staying here, on our next visit.

"An interesting hotel"

528pete, Torquay, United Kingdom 15/09/2015

Within walking distance of the famous Hollywood boulevard, this is what I would class as a budget hotel. However, it is very clean and tidy with a restaurant that looks like the 1950's are back. The hotel is covered in framed photos of famous actors and actresses and when I say covered, that's exactly what I mean. Comfortable beds and the room we were in was very comfortable. A reasonably priced hotel, close to the action that is Hollywood glitz.
