"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
Great place to stay...hidden gem!!! Very affordable and confy. I will definitely return!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
I very much enjoyed my stay at the Hollywood historic hotel. I liked the way everything was maintained and I liked the location of the hotel and the price. I recommend it highly,.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Okay, so granted we made the hotel reservation through a third party site but when we arrived the room I had reserved was no longer available. No apologies, or attempts to fix or rectify the situation. The room was incredibly small, and the bed was horribly uncomfortable. Way too much money, for what we got!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Old Hollywood mixed with European charm"
Now, you have to remember going into booking this hotel it's the Hollywood HISTORIC Hotel. This hotel opened in 1927, it's a classic in Hollywood. The rooms are not going to be like your modern hotels you see now. The lobby is small but so full of character it reminded me of some of the hotels in Europe we've stayed at. Our room had a king bed, it was […] comfortable and very clean. Yes, the bathroom is small but it was one of THE cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen. The towels are thick and everything worked just fine. The room was equipped with everything we needed. We got a kick out of the elevator, it was so small and only fit two people, but remember it's an old hotel. Walking around the hotel I noticed it was very clean, no clutter, nothing broken or ripped. It's minutes to many popular spots around los angeles, it's about a block away from Paramount Pictures and Raleigh studios. When you check in ask if a street view room is available because you will be able to see the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory from your window. We got a street view room and the windows open and when closed you can't hear a thing. The parking is behind the hotel and it's gated. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We travel a lot and have stayed in many different types of hotels and for this hotel being as old as it is, it's been maintained wonderfully adding the modern touches at the same time keeping with the old world charm this hotel started with.I love this hotel.

Stayed 2 nights good value for the money, a couple of miles from everything. Bath was quite small, we stayed when the outside temperature was mild, I don't know if the window unit would keep up in summer. The room was clean and the staff helped us book a tour. No restaurant but café next door served a good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just horrible the staff was extremely rude. No microwave ! No ice no water no nothing. In my room no hot water to shower with my housbad doughter & I weren't happy what's so ever. Never coming here again.!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cliche stop in Hollywood"
The most notable thing to say about this hotel is that none of the drain holes in the bathroom had plugs. My wife read a previous review on this same hotel where someone had requested a plug to take a bath, however the hotel staff refused to provide one. I didn't go to this effort because it was obvious to me why plugs had not been provided. I guessed […] the hotel just didn't want something to lose and then replace. This forces some guests to waste water, which is ironic because most hotels I have stayed in practically beg you to re-use towels to avoid wasting water! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to All we wanted to see and do"
Hotel is in a great location to access Hollywood, Dodgers Stadium, USC (to see Endeavor).... We found hotel nice and clean - and staff very pleasant and helpful. The only thing we felt we missed was a table and a second chair. There was room for them and they would have been appreciated. Lack of a phone was no issue because we had cell phones. Elevator […] small but all four of us could ride at same time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We would definitely go back"
Great hotel, especially in light of the cost. With a car it is ideally located, close to many major attractions and the freeway. The only downside is that there aren't many restaurants/bars within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value & Location with Nostalgic Experience."
I was in town for a conference and am actually from the area. I really enjoyed my stay here. It is an older historic hotel and a great value. Easy to get anywhere from here. Highly recommend for a true local California experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not so good"
Run down hotel. The old style of the hotel is taken to a new level and it is not located near anything of interest. The internet was also slow. For a much cheaper price I could have stayed at a hostel with better value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No excuse for mold - use bleach"
The bathroom tiles were molded on floor and tub area - unsanitary. There is no excuse for this lack of cleanliness.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LA Tourist Visit - not returning here"
I am not a picky person, but unfortunately I would not recommend this hotel. The main reason being (there are a few if you care to read more) when we asked for more blankets because our room was freezing they told us we couldn't have any because they use a 3rd party for their linens and didn't have any extra. The only blanket on the bed was a thin summer […] blanket. They also said the same thing when we didn't get clean towels the next day, (because they were used under the leaky pipes in the bathroom) but with a good amount of grumbling they somehow managed to procure some. Also the room was musty, refrigerator door wouldn't fully close, and the room did not offer much buffer from night-time street noise. On the positive, it was a convenient location.

"Please pardon our dust."
The Hollywood Historic Hotel served the most basic needs of a hotel guest-a bed to sleep in with a bathroom nearby. We arrived at our already late 230 PM check-in to be told there were no rooms available yet. We checked in around 4 PM. Parking was free and easy. We got one of the "better" and "bigger" rooms, per the attendant. Our room was on the corner, […] was quite big, and did have a good view of the Hollywood sign. It also overlooked busy Hollywood traffic in a residential area. It is not within quick walking distance of any restaurants, bars, or sights. The room was fairly noisy at all times due to its sitting on a busy intersection. It has a window AC unit that did a passable job at cooling. The bathroom was clean but is very small. The room smelled strongly like cigarette smoke, even moreso with each passing night. I seriously suspect the maid was smoking while "cleaning" our room each day. I say cleaning in jest because, while the coffee was replaced each day and the carpet was vacuumed, the sheets were not changed in six days. Sleeping on the sand you dragged back from the beach night after night is not fun. The bed was also atrocious. I am a firefighter and am used to sleeping in cheap borrowed beds but this bed was literally like sleeping on a cardboard box laid over concrete. The staff were friendly, but after the second time I returned from a long day to find my key no longer worked, I was not pleased about returning to the front desk.

Great location. Easy access to highways and short trip to many great locations and attractions. Free parking. Quiet hotel. Not a lot of extra amenities but the price was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
The beds are rock hard, the blankets extremely thin, the towels rough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room with a kinda view."
The person at the front desk was on youtube as soon as we walked in and came off with rude with an attitude maybe since we disrupted him to check in. He was not friendly at all!!! The hotel it self was cool and it kinda took you back in time. The cool selling point for this hotel is that you can open your window and see the Hollywood sign. we wanted […] another blanket because we where cold and we had to use our personal cell phone to call the front desk at 12am but NO ONE ANSWERED! so bring some extra blankets. things to note about this hotel. - NO PHONES IN THE ROOM. - NO ICE MACHINES -AN $25 PARKING CHARGE FOR AN EXTRA CAR PARKING Hope this helps.

"Short LA visit"
Booked a more expensive smoking room, none were available when we checked in. On location parking was convenient, staff was friendly. Rooms were very small with window AC unit and no screen on the windows, although they did open. Hotel is old and it shows. Overall not bad as we weren't visiting LA to stay in the room. Easy drive to everything we wanted […] to see/do. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It can hardly be a two star hotel !!"
Small room, uncomfortable bed, tiny bathroom, no shower curtain, no phone in room, small lobby, not very helpful front desk.. the list goes on. I have stayed in many hotels across the country and I have no idea how can this hotel be a three star hotel. I have stayed in two star hotels that are far better than this place. Only good thing about this hotel […] is it's location close to Hollywood area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
+ great location + reasonable price + free parking -old hotel/roomGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is right down the block from paramount pictures studio so that was a plus but at night the area gets a little creepy so I would recommend walks outside alone. The hotel was as historic as it's title from the room to the elevator the staff was amazingly nice and helpful to me for a first time visit to LA the room was overall clean a few minor […] disruptions in the bathroom the room service left strands of her hair for us :( but besides that everything else was A.OK Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hollywood historic hotel"
The hotel is centrally located with drive time about 20-30 min with traffic to most areas. The room was smaller than I expected with the bathroom being even smaller. I didn't spend to much time in hotel since I was out and about for most of my visit. The location is what I think is the best part. The hotel has it's charm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It is in Hollywood :/"
Gentleman at the front desk was less than thrilled to be doing his job. No smile, no greeting less than enthusiastic about life in general. There was no phone in the room to call downstairs to extend my stay. Hot water was not working in my room at all. Had to take a shower at a different hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming Historic Hollywood hotel."
The hotel is about 80 years old, but has been refurbished to reflect modern day needs. Room was quite small but can imagine people long ago and them staying there. Lots of old pictures of Hollywood stars of old and others who impacted that time period. Rates were very reasonable and includedf free parking in back of hotel. We plan to return to LA […] in the future and will stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I love Hollywood Historic Hotel!"
It's a very basic and old hotel but it has tons of character. I've stayed there twice and I will likely stay there any time I'm in LA.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great week in California!!!"
Perfect location if you want to visit Universal Studios, LA Zoo, Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard, West Hollywood, Griffith Observatory, Beverly Hills, and Downtown LA, as all of these place you can get to by cab, for under $30. Venice Beach was around $40 and Malibu was around $50, but considering you're on vacation, it's cheap in my book.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was only there for a few hours but all in all enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was basically clean but we were disappointed in the sparseness of furniture and minimal accessories in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Looked just like pictures on the website!"
We were going to the Dr.Phil show the next day and it was very close to the studio.Had a nice view of the Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood sign.Lots of noise,but I was expecting that.I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"awesome view of hollywood sign"
Its located 2 miles from the walk of fame. The room is small but decent. The restroom looks very dated. Windows can open up. Overall, a perfect place to stay for one night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to many sites and free parking"
While the Hollywood Historic Hotel has a minimalistic feel to it, the staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and there is free parking! We rented a car so the free parking was a great addition to the stay. The hotel was 15 minutes away from great breakfast stops in West Hollywood, hiking in Griffith Park and Hollywood Blvd and the Walk of Fame. Good […] Points: Clean accommodations. Free Parking. Friendly Staff. Bad Points: The wifi worked in the morning but not in the later afternoon or evening very well (a call downstairs informed us that perhaps too many people were using it at the time… perhaps time to get a larger, better router) While the noise from the street tended to be very loud, there was an AC window unit so the noise could be controlled at night by closing the windows and still keeping the room cool. While the closet/bathroom was very small, the space served its purpose and we spent most of our days site seeing and outdoors so the hotel was a great deal for our budget!

Hotel location is great but hotel definitely needed renovation to update the hallway & lighting to modernize the hotel & still hold to its historic aspect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would you like some singing with your construction"
I really appreciated the construction going on in the room next to me starting at 9 am when I didn't even check in until 3 am. The ac was really hard to find, there was no light blocking and no sound proofing. Terrible night's sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cannot be beaten on a cost to environment basis!"
A grand old dame brought back to life! The area is old Hollywood and everything is nearby from the studios and all the stuff people want to see. A huge parking lot and very reasonable room rates. The interior has been upgraded and the room we stayed in was clean, the beds are subpar but I assume they will be updated in the future. The desk personnel […] are excellent especially Michael a veritable travel guide for us. We are veteran travelers and were totally pleased. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not so charming, pretty uncomfortable"
Even though I grabbed this one as a deal, I still feel like I would have rather paid more to stay at a nicer hotel. The whole thing reminds me of the ramshackle 100-year-old apartment I used to rent- charming on the outside but unlivable on the inside. Apart from the musty, barely appointed room decor that depressed me the moment we stepped in, the […] bathroom was old-timey tiny with no counter or shelf space to put toiletries. The mattress was cheap and stiff and all the linens and pillows were threadbare and thin. And this was a recently renovated room! The traffic outside was very noisy, and shutting the windows and drapes did little to keep it out. I'm never staying here again, or in Hollywood for that matter. If you need a place to rest and recharge yourself, its worth the money to stay at a nicer place somewhere in Burbank or Glendale. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's clean and nice, Can't beat the price,"
I stay here often. It's always clean and well maintained. The rooms in front are loud because of traffic. Rooms in back are MUCH more quiet. No frills or extra's, just the basics. For the price it's a great deal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"First LA experience"
The staff in the lobby were amazingly friendly and helpful with information. Our room was upgraded, due to availability, and I was surprised to find practically, a full kitchen with refirgerator, dishes, coffee and coffee maker!

"Nice hotel close it hollywood action"
The room was clean and staff was friendly . Hotel was vintage could use some upkeepGenuine Expedia guest review
Room didn't match picture online. I could feel the springs in the mattress. Curtains covered the A.C., floors literally squeak scary noises, mirror is big enough to see your head only (in bathroom) full length is outside. No restroom in the lobby. The lady was so kind & let us back in our room after having checked out for my daughter & got us a driver […] that was great in finding his way around L.A. & doesn't charge an arm and a leg compared to other taxis. If it wasn't for the man who checked us in and the lady who checked us out I'd rate it lower. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
