"Convenient, CLEAN and Hollywood History"
Convenient location. Parking was a breeze and it was free with the room. I had stayed in downtown LA earlier, where the parking garage was hard to find, hard to park and cost $25 extra per day. The Hollywood Historic Hotel had easy, free parking, free WiFi (although I didn't use it), the staff was pleasant, informativel and courteous. The rooms were […] sparkling clean. The elevator was tiny but this is a historic building so I almost count that as a plus. The stairs were faster and healthier ... The room was spotless. The small bathroom was a bit cramped but well done and in perfect condition. I would say "spotless" but I've already used that adjective. The historic Hollywood photos that lined the corridors, stairwells and rooms, made it informative and fun. As an added bonus, Nue Studio and Cafe is an awesome place for light meals, coffee, smoothies, beer and wine. Nue Studio and Cafe is located downstairs in the Historic Hollywood Hotel. I think it might have a room with a hair salon, but the antiques, food, beverages and music are a great addition to the neighborhood. I will be visiting the area frequently in the future, and this will be my "home base" in the LA/Hollywood area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It is okay for one night."
The price is appropriate for this Historic Hotel, however don't expect much more than a 2 Star. Bedding is a bit skimpy with lumpy, flat pillows and one thin blanket and sheet for a cover. Fortunately they provided an electric space heater for warmth. Our room, 325, was located right on the corner of Melrose and Western so it was noisy. The free parking […] is a bonus for a hotel in LA. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the worst experiences ever!!!"
Stay away from this hotel. It is located off a very busy LA road and it is very noisy throughout the night. Asked for room change in the morning and the hotel staff promised another room would be ready when we came back. No, in the evening we were told all rooms were booked and the staff didn't even say sorry and just said "this is what we can do", […] take that! The bed is very uncomfortable and the sheets had marks left, I guess, from previous guests. And again, the staff refused to change them since we checked in after 11 pm and he simply could not do it! The bathroom and the sink are ridiculously small and hard to use, which must be historical reasons?! Anyway, we had a very bad experience at this hotel and would never return to it.

It was fine. I like vintagie locations. Service was pleasant and helpful. Not to far from Hollywood. Nue Cafe has nice staff tooGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The price paid I would have settled for redroof in"
Same condition as a motel. Did not like the carpets. The room smelled like cigarettes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the edge of Hollywood, the hotel is really old."
The hotel was older than I thought. The rooms were cold without comforters. I had to use a space heater to make it through the smoke-filled night. On the second night housekeeping had taken my remote to the television and the staff could not replace it or anything until the following day after I had checked out. But the hotel was clean and parking free. […] And there was a good mini- frig in the room and large king bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Vintage Holloywood at it's Best"
Love the vintage look, an feel of the hotel....the room had been updated very nicely, new windows, updated bathroom, and nice king-bed.... I liked the vintage photos displayed everywhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel to stay"
Hotel staff were courteous and helpful. Free parking is a great plus in this area. Room is clean and the city view is great from windows. There are a few areas of improvement can be done: there's no phone in the room, it's ok for me as I have a cell phone with unlimited package, but some other people might not. Tub did not have a stopper, hangers are […] not detachable, towel racks are not enough. Overall it's a great hotel and I will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice view of HollyWood sign in front facing rooms"
Building is dated, but historic. The decor is a bit over the top in the lobby, but rooms are plain, but clean and serviceable. The front of the building faces the "Hollywood" sign. There is parking in the back and seems safe, but a bit tight. There are cameras all over, but the monitor in the lobby shows "no HHD", so anyone that knows what that means, […] knows that there is no recording going on, so if they commit a crime, there is no recording of them. Just a live video. Overall, a decent place, but not like the new chain motels/hotels. Just clean, plain and affordable, but with a nice view of the "Hollywood" sign.

"Close to Hollywood, outdated and not the cleanest"
The pictures are a bit deceiving- it looks historic and nice from the outside, but the inside is outdated in a tacky and unclean way. The rooms have chipping paint, dirty carpet, dusty drapes and hard beds. The "free wifi" seems to only exist in certain areas and they claim that the problem is with your computer if you suggest otherwise. Overall, would […] definitely not recommend this to a friend, but if you are looking based solely on proximity, this might be the place for you? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a one star hotel! No phones, no ice machine, little securityGenuine Expedia guest review
Only a small space heater for heat, no phone in rooms, no ice machine, no pool, no restaurant. This is at best a one star hotel, not 3 as advertised. Reserved 3 nights. And regret it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Need to insulate the walls...lot of noise...terrible smoke smell in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"November 1, 2014"
Very convenient to Hollywood Forever, our destination for Dia De Los Muertos. The room was okay--bed, nightstands, tv cabinet, desk, chair, and fridge. The bathroom was tiny but has at least been updated. AC was provided by a window unit that performed okay... just okay. The best part was probably the parking--easy to get to, located right behind the […] hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Kinda cool old hotel"
If you have any intrest in old world Hollywood, this is just the discount hotel for you. I was hoping for some ghosts, but no luck. Decent enough place...not date material!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hollywood Historic Hotel is a great deal!"
Jason was great! Would recommend to friends and family because it was so reasonable for the LA area. We were going to an early tapping of the Dr. Phil Show, right around the corner. We spent the day before at The Grove/FarmersMarket, back to room then Jason told us about a restaurant, a safe walking distance, Osteria La Buca, fabulous place for dinner, […] call for reservations, place was empty and just filled up (we didn't have reservations) very reasonable. We were on street side, noisy, recommend parking lot side, sound proofing is not very good, that is why I always bring ear plugs. Would stay there again. FYI, They ask for a $100 security deposit. Many Europeans stay here... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a Short Stay near the Hollywood Action"
The bath amenities are low class. There are no phones in the rooms due to the building being a historical place. The room was nice size, very clean, flat screen TV, fridge. No ice machines though. Staff extremely pleasant. Nice restaurant and bar on next corner. Very small bath was no problem for a short stay. Elevator is small but quiant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely renovated hotel near everything Hollywood"
The room I had was on the 3rd floor. It was small but still comfortable for two (single queen). The bathrooms were small as well but just right for two and perfect for one. The room had a fridge as well as a desk. The closet had plenty of hanging space but may be too Hugh for short people. The location is fantastic for going to several different areas […] of LA. The only complaint I have is concerning the small parking lot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I liked the hotel. It's in a good location next to Paramount Studio. Simple rooms for a budget. Easy parking in the back :) Right next to the road so ask for a room that faces the other way.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The best place to stay for Classic Hollywood fans!"
My stay at the Hollywood Historic Hotel was beyond fabulous. It's decor was just perfect, the halls lined with classic Hollywood pictures and the fabulous lobby were awesome. It's central Hollywood location was just amazing, staff were helpful and friendly and the room was perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room with a view!!!"
Clean, nice view(even the Hollywood Sign), great bed, nice flat screen, Coffee Maker, Fridge, great staff took care of my every question graciously, neat pictures throughout the hallways reminds one of bygone beauties and film stars, quiet, quaint elevator, good parking, close to everything, just a great experience. A great home base for your Hollywood […] and Southern Cal adventures. Once again, the staff was great, especially the consierge ( a young man who was GREAT !!!). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I'd stay here again!"
The hotel was clean and good looking. It was fun to roam the hall way and enjoy the many large photos of a bygone Hollywood. Although obvious an old hotel it was well keep up and the staff was very helpful. I would stay here again. Good location and price for being so close to the mix.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Other than the moldy shower/ tub area and the exposed shower, the room was clean and reasonably comfortable. Day manager, very helpful. Attached cafe, friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good historic hotel like to make a movie"
The hotel is very convenient old fashion in a good way with a lot of photos of movie stars of all the times very nice The room was very good very big and clean with a dressing room and a very comfortable bathroom good soft towels The hotel outside look like a house in England it is very close to Hollywood Boulevard and I could see the big letters of […] Hollywood from my bedroom It was like being in a movie I just love it Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better than I expected"
There are obviously hotels that may qualify better than this one. . .but for the money, location, ample free parking. . .it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing at all extra, not even phones"
Unfortunately there are no extras at all! There are not even phones in the room. They claim thats why there is free wifi????? Except the wifi is horrible unless you room is under one of two routers in the hall. The rooms are small and have ac window units that are not very powerful. Back in 1921 for the general size of a human was 5'9 maybe but now […] the upgrades for todays standard are far off. Now to be fair I paid $99 through hotels.com, but even still it was not worth it. The only help is the one desk clerk and if your lucky some cleaning staff. The rooms are very clean. But other than that nope I will not return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a wonderfully weird relatively cheap hotel. Despite not being within walking distance of any Hollywood landmark, it has a chintzy touristy feel, complete with posters of show biz icons. There's nothing to speak of nearby, besides an even weirder barber shop cafe attached to it. We were apparently "upgraded" to "the suite," which unlike the other […] rooms, has no bed stands, missing drawers, a small table, and a mystifyingly bare walk-in closet. My girlfriend and I had a lovely dinner by a taco truck at a nearby gas station, which is the only fine dining available in the immediate vicinity. Enjoy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Outdated and uncomfortable"
Looks nice online but don't be fooled. Uncomfortable bed. Icky bathroom. Don't bother.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affordable with a hip feel"
Small old-fashioned room with quaint character. Hotel is a cross between garish and elegant, kind of cutting edge. The bathroom was small with very little counter space and dim lighting. A big plus is the windows can be opened for fresh air. There is a window-mounted air conditioner. Room had refrigerator, but no microwave. Parking, which is hard to […] find in Hollywood, was included. It's hard to beat Hollywood as a vacation destination, and this hotel is close enough to all of it. Rooms on the front have a great view of the Hollywood Hills. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very basic. bed good, bathroom very small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My daughter stayed here while waiting for her new apt to be ready. She moved to another place after a few days. Not really a three star, more like two. Busy part of town, noisy and touristy. Should have paid more and stayed in a nicer place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not luxurious, but very comfortable, clean and a good value.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed the quick visit to la and the hotel was a perfect stop. Thanks and will be back for sure!Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed in Hollywood before but this neighborhood was not at all like that. We didn't feel unsafe but it was a 3 km drive/walk/cab to the walk of fame and the local bars didn't seem that fun except for one with arcade games, that was awesome! Still I would recommend the hotel, the location was good and the price was decent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Place to sleep."
Very tiny bathroom. The closet was bigger. Bring an extension cord if you need power at the little table. Comfortable bed. Clean. I thought the rates were a bit high for what you get.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Historic Hollywood Hotel"
Friends from South Africa came to visit and wanted to see all of LA. So we picked this pace and it was fantastic. Free parking and a great location. Less than 1 black away was an amazing Italian restaurant and 3 blocks away was a real good Mexican restaurant. Highly recommend this place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"value for money"
good price for hollywood, free wifi and free parking, but rooms are pretty old, especially restrooms. Needs to be refurbished, but it's OK if you're looking for something cheapGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The free parking is the best thing about the hotel"
Room is small, retro atmosphere, falls short in what it offers. The sink is too tiny to wash a blouse in. The bathtub has no stopper (this seems a matter of policy; the clerk at the desk said "we don't have those," as if it were somehow exotic). You can be gone all day, get back late afternoon, and find they still haven't done your room. You can't just […] turn on the TV, you need training from staff to get it to operate. The neighborhood looks a bit seedy. Great, convenient free parking, though. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We had no issues at all"
I saw this place getting a lot of negative reviews before our arrival, so obviously I was nervous about what our stay might bring. I have to say overall my girlfriend and I were VERY pleased. Parking was free in the back of the building. I asked to have a 3rd floor room facing the Hollywood sign and the man at the front said, "sure no problem." The […] building was not noisy at all. We were 10 mins away from all Hollywood attractions. The room itself was a bit dated and could use some upgrading, also a small bathroom. Overall very happy with our stay here, would stay again.

"A piece of Hollywood history"
Built in 1927, this hotel offers a glimpse into Hollywood's past with its red and gold decor and an old fashioned double door elevator. Unfortunately the neighborhood is now run down, but there are good restaurants less than a block away as well as Paramount Studios.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For an old hotel, it was clean and well kept. They provide parking space. There's several coffee shops in walking distance and Hollywood Blvd is a short drive away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
The best thing about this hotel is it looks good from the outside. The rooms are small. We were given a room on the 2nd floor adjacent to a stairwell. The bathroom was very small. There was only 10" between the front of the toilet and the bathtub. I am 5'6" and could barely fit in that small space. Anyone taller would have to dangle their feet in the […] tub. The staff was helpful and friendly for the most part until it was time to check out. Then the person disappeared to get breakfast. The WiFi did not work in the room, I had to go outside in the hallway under the router to connect my devices. All in all not a good experience and definitely not worth the Expedia price. Very very disappointing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great LOCATION!!!! to attractions."
Very nice stay..room was clean, comfortable, nice size T.V., air conditioning. Parking provided was ample. This is not a big fancy Hotel, it doesn't have a pool, nor a restaurant located inside itself, but there were plenty of places to go out to eat. Universal Studios is a mere 12-15 min. drive. Easy access to freeway. Would stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
