"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
I only stayed one night at this hotel. It's definitely old and in need of some upgrades. The room was pretty small, as was the bathroom. However, I only needed a place to sleep and shower, so I was able to do that comfortably. There's no landline in the room if you need to call the front desk or outside the hotel. My view was of a gas station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your money or time"
Horrible experience...bad hotel, bad service, it's like living in a ghost town, literally living in early 19th century. Dirty/old towel , smallest bathroom I have ever seen...seriously... Don't waste your time or money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good base for sightseeing"
Good location, rooms are a bit tired especially bathroom but OK as a base for sightseeing if you have a car with free insight parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On a girls trip it was just what we needed. So close to everything we wanted to see. Rooms are really small and simple but all we needed was a clean place to rest at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Old hotel, but very clean. Location was very good. I read that Santa Monica was the best spot to visit in and around LA. I can't see taking the freeway from there to go to Downtown LA. I thought this was the best spot to visit the sights. Paramount Studios was down the street!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun in the City"
The room was small but comfortable. The window air conditioner worked well which was a god send. The location was great, fairly close to everything we wanted. There are no frills such as pool, work-out facility, etc.. Just a nice place to relax after a full day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Eccentric and fun"
the rooms were clean, staff was friendly, can't beat free parking in L.A.! Cool memorabilia to wander around and look at. A little far from the strip....about a $20 cab fareGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We spent 2 night at the Hollywood historic, as soon as you see the building you get the feeling of an antique building, the staff was very nice, the rooms were adorable bed very comfortable. We could see the Hollywood sign from our room. The shower would get a little hot sometimes, and the elevator was a little small, but other than that we had no problems, […] and that was a very nice trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a place to sleep."
There's a little bit of charm to it, but not enough to override it's lack of comfort. It's location is on a pretty busy street with an abundance of noise 24/7. Rooms were clean but not comfy. Beds and pillows were very stiff. The soap was so dry it felt like glue. If you bring your own pillow, soap and earplugs, your experience here would probably be […] much better than mine was.

The hotel is clean and in a great location. Rooms are fairly small but are still comfortable and lovely. With Paramount a wee walk from the hotel, there is much to do and explore. I would recommend this hotel to all travelers! I will be staying there again! You can't beat the price!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room had vintage charm but did not have comfortable chairs to relax in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Non chain hotel"
Charming hotel, built in 1927, filled with old Hollywood photos. Nothing fancy, just the basics, yet clean, comfortable and affordable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable hotel with vintage Hollywood character"
Clean, comfortable, quiet room without any frills. Old style bathroom and elevator make you feel you're back in time, in a good way. Within 5 minutes of Hollywood & Vine; and one block from Paramount Studios. All this and free parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a well-kept old hotel with friendly and efficient staff. The parking lot is fenced and clean. The hotel was immaculately clean. The bathroom is very small, so a very large person would probably not be comfortable in there. It is very convenient to many things in LA. It is down the street from Paramount Studios. We were pleased with our stay […] there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is not located in the best area in Hollywood but it is a central location, only about 10 dollar cab ride to Hollywood and Vine, close to highway and free parking. The hotel was built in the 1930s and has kept the old Hollywood hotel feel. If you are looking for pillow top beds, huge bathtubs and all the amenities of a W Hotel, you will not […] find that here. If you want to have a unique, great experience in a hotel that has been there since the beginning of Hollywood then this is your place. It was exactly what I had wanted and hoped for.

Very close to Hollywood attractions. We walked many places, which is rare in this area. No water until after 6PM, which was not convenient. They were doing work on the system. The room was clean and comfortable. Very close to Paramount Studio tour. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Classic Hollywood Hotel that could be great"
The lobby was really fun old time Hollywood décor. The elevator is tiny, two people and one suitcase, or four friends fit in it. Interesting pictures of old Hollywood scenes and actors and actresses line the halls. The room had laminate flooring.no carpeting. The bed was extremely uncomfortable, we both had back aches. The pillows were old, hard and […] smelled funny. The person at the desk said there was no other pillows available, nothing extra. The windows opened to the street and there was a lot of traffic noise. The air conditioner didn't really cool the room. The over head fan was off balance. One bedside table, one straight back desk chair and a table. The hotel could be great, but right now it's pretty Spartan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was really nice, location is good... Hotel itself is disgusting. Bed/pillows were horrible, smelled musty, tiny rooms with gross carpet... Oh, and no fitted sheet on the bed! Ew.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Onsite parking does cost money. Room is just enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good place for the price. Staff was friendly and room was very clean. Definitely an older place but not bad at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Funky and old."
The Hotel is funky in a cool old Hollywood way. The elevator was slow, tiny and not super reliable. Our room was large but the bathroom was tiny. I'm talking tiny tiny.... No fan in bath and a window unit in room. Things were hot and steamy. The shower hadn't a been cleaned. The previous guests soap, etc was still there. The towels were suspicious too. […] We had the strange feeling they may have been used. Yuck right!? Bed and pillows were old but pretty comfy. The parking was good but the overall location was very busy and loud. Not totally awful (except for the towel thing) but I wouldn't stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is 1st hotel I've been to that did not have a business center for guests. It was the leanest furnished room ever with no phone in the room to the front desk, no room service and only regular coffee, Everyone doesn't or can't drink caffene coffee. The man was not friendly nor acommadating. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone nor stay there […] again myself. The area was not a good one to walk in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel in central LA location."
This is a very pleasant hotel with excellent access to public transportation. It is a little dated but does not look old. Clean and safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice not the best but nice"
Its a difficult balancing actGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location"
Staff was awesome and very nice. Water was out when we got there due to an emergency. But overall, it was quite and close to everything I wanted.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Paramount, beautiful lobby."
This hotel has some charm. It is like going back fifty years. We loved the lobby. The bathrooms were clean, but the hotel could use some TLC. We had a room on the corner street side, and it was loud, but we found it surprisingly easy to sleep. A mile from Paramount if you park, three blocks if you go through the walking entrance. Great Italian restaurant […] less than a block away, and a coffee cafe next to the hotel with great coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Great staff. We did not find the lack of a phone in the room a problem (the hotel front desk number is on a sign in the room). We really liked the 30's feel of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was perfect for a historical hotel, very lovely. The elevator was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is a motel"
We didn't expect much, so we were not disappointed. Clean room, friendly staff, free parking, free Wi-Fi. Other than that, very old, almost neglected. Owner seems not caring, just collecting the money and driving expenses to the minimum.Genuine Expedia guest review
The stay was great the Front Desk clerk Mike was great and went out of his way to find me another Hotel room because they were booked up. I will stay at Hollywood Historia when I return to LA in a few weeks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very conveient and the pictures throughout the hotel were very interesting to look at. We were not there very much, but when we were the staff was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I just needed a place to crash and booked this place at the last minute. The front desk staff was polite, everything was clean, and all the room amenities were in good working order. The only drawback is that the pillows and blankets were pretty cheep and weren't very comfortable - but overall it was a decent place to stay. If I needed another place […] to stay I would consider staying again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old hotel with lots of charm!"
Clean and plenty of free parking! Dont expect something super nice and updated but you do get a fridge in the room! The bathroom was cute and small and clean so IDK what everyone was talking about on the Yelp reviews. I would stay here again for that price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was basic, but clean and good shape. Kind of expected a little more "Old Time" feel about it. The only thing I was a bit ticked about, was charging me extra for the second vehicle. Not a huge deal, just was tired when I checked in and it caught me off guard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall stay was average to above average. No phones in room and bed was slightly uncomfortable. When we arrived restaurant was not open.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't beat it"
I loved the hotel all but the super hard mattress. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient for film studio tours"
I liked the hotel. It is on a busy street so there is traffic noise day and night but I did not think it was too bad. Some restaurants and places to visit nearby . Hotel does offer tickets for coach tours which is very good. Staff very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked this room thinking it was a 3 star hotel, when I got there it was more like a 1 star, the bed was very uncomfortable, pillows were half size rocks, there were no comforters on the bed, the restroom was disgusting it was like a public gas station restroom, the sink was tightly fitted next to the toilet with a 1x2 ft mirror, I wouldn't even shower […] there thankfully I only stayed 1 night. It was old, muggy I will never stay there again, the elevator was more like a dumb waiter out of time, very disappointed waste of my money! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A historic experience"
The hotel is wonderfully historic, conjuring up images of a bygone film era. It is located within walking distance of historic Paramount studios where you can take a tour. Only problem was they turned the water off for maintenance reasons for 6 hours on one day which I thought was excessive. Also, when it asked for an additional blanket, they said they […] didn't have one because all of the rooms were filled, which seemed strange that they had the exact number of blankets for each room.

"Fancy hotel, great location and price"
Best la hotel for the price hands down. Good staff and facilities. The elevator did stop working when we were there. Other than that, two pleasant nights. P.s. Go to the Columbian food place across the street!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Pleasant stay @ Hollywood Historic Hotel"
We stayed 2 nights & were very pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel (we noticed that the gated parking lot was not only clean, but several trees have been recently planted). We arrived late & requested a top floor room (3rd floor), but the hotel was full so we were placed in a room on the 2nd floor. We were concerned that we would hear the guests […] "walking around" in the room above us, but happily, no noise problem (this has proved to be an exasperating issue with stays at other hotels). We also really enjoyed the "Old Hollywood "pictures throughout the hotel. It's not every day you get the chance to stay in a hotel that 's almost 100 years old --- the fact that the room did not have a phone just added to the feeling that you were going back in time (an 800 # was posted for hotel assistance --- after all, who doesn't carry a phone these days?). The hotel staff were all very nice & helpful. Thankfully, we didn't listen to the few online rants about "hard beds, no phones, etc". No hotel is perfect but this hotel was historic,charming & definitely worth the visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Old historic building, lacks many of the chain amenities. Clean small rooms and a great location, worth the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice but the bed was horrible!!!!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly Staff and Great Rates"
The Hollywood Historic Hotel appears to be a work in progress. The rooms are clean, the hotel feels safe, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are bare bones, but appear to be newly upgraded with new carpets, paint, bed linens and bathroom fixtures. The rooms are spartan (ours had only one tiny lamp). Room rates include parking and […] wifi - which can add up at other places. Neighborhood is an adventure, but did offer several very nice restaurants. Staff was first rate. A good deal, and we'll stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price!"
At first I was a little sketched out about this place. It's definitely in a low budget area, but most of Hollywood is. The staff was friendly, and after I got over the creepy vibe it turned out to be a nice stay. It's centrally located as long as you have a car.. everything we wanted to do was in a 10 mile radius. The room was not nice at all, and the […] bed was uncomfortable. BUT... everything was very clean and I even checked for bed bugs (LOL.. I'm a germophobe.) The shower was nice also.

"Great Location, Reasonable Price, Cool Old Place"
The only reason I gave 4 out of 5 instead of the full five was for the construction going on right beneath our room that shook the heck out of our room. It lasted past 6 pm. Other than that, it was a very cool place. Michael, at the front desk, was super friendly, helpful and everything else other reviewers have noted about him. We were very happy and […] pleased with the job and courtesy of the hotel cleaning staff too. The hotel was centrally located where we could reach many attractions and touristy places within 15-20 minutes. The last night we were there we walked across the street to have some deliciously authentic Oaxacan Mexican food after finding it on Google/Yelp. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
