"Good value, good location"
Very good value for the money. Room was adequate. Has a nice pool and hot tub. I went to see the sights, and did not spend much time there. Across from the Metro and within 30 minutes of many sights. Right next to Ralph's Supermarket and Starbuck's. Neighborhood was safe, but kind of run down. Helpful staff printed out maps from the hotel to where ever […] I wanted to go.

"Great for the price!"
This hotel is in a bad part of town, but is secure, has free parking that is video monitored, and once you're in the hotel, you're in your own world. The staff was friendly enough, the room is plain but fine. What do you really need in a hotel room on vacation...a bed, toilet and shower. The fridge froze our sodas and milk overnight, but other than […] that, we didn't have any issues. We'd stay here again. The price was right, and it met all of our needs.

"Busy Location, Quiet place"
This hotel is located in a busy part of town. But the hotel itself is very quiet. The hotel staff were very welcoming and attentive to our needs. The hotel itself is old but it is well kept. Room was very clean and bed was comfortable. The rooms are small but comfy...no tub just room enough for a shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Look past the outside appearance"
Great location near metro stop, Supermarket next to motel. Free parking. Room was clean and comfortable. The whole place, public areas and outside need some updating. Hotel looks pretty shabby. If you can get past the overall appearance, not a bad little place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to everything!"
The staff was amazing. The rooms are a little on the small side. I wasn't too fond of the parking area (but it's to be expected in L.A.). I liked the fact the only way to get to the rooms was through the lobby. It made it seem really safe. The grocery store being almost next door was really convenient. I also liked that there is on-site laundry...they […] even had complimentary detergent. Overall, it was a great experience. I would have no problem staying here again, and would surely recommend it to others. :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good budget friendly motelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Three nights stay"
It looks better in the pictures. So first impression was somewhat disappointing. That being said, non of the appearance drawbacks had any real effect on the stay. Room was clean, quite comfortable though a bit lacking in space. There is no breakfast available, so we went to Denny's nearby. And there are plenty of Thai restaurants couple of blocks away, […] where we dined. Hollywood walk of fame is two metro stations away, other parts of the city easily reachable by car. There is free parking available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great to sleep and stay the night"
I found this little motel in a great location just 5min away from west Hollywood and 7min from Universal Studios. tons of food and stores around , even a mini shopping plaza next door. king size beds are good and a good size shower stall, i usually hate that i have to slouch under a shower/tub that you most likely find on most hotels, but this was actually […] good for average size men, im 5'11. the rooms are clean, but dated. i cant complaint since i only stay to shower and sleep, i visited socal to go to Hollywood and Universal Studios not to kick it on the hotel. a good size pool and a spa looked great but i didnt bring clothes for use in the pool. no continental breakfast here, but food is all around there. I decided to stay an extra night and it was good. I will definitely be there again in the future mini vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"How rude can it be!"
When we got there we were not sure if it was a hotel because the parking entrance looks like a spooky alley. Then we manage to get to the reception area where we were treated poorly. We asked about our reservation and the little Chinese man did not answer and instead he wanted my driver's license. I gave him mine. He then asked how many people and I […] said two, then he started preparing the paper work then proceeded to give me one room key, and I ask to have another one. As he prepared a second key I continue to ask him about my reservation to which he responded "if your name is not in our system, I would not give you the key, and you have to return the second key to us, don't forget that" in a very condescending manner. I began to feel uneasy and wonder if we need to go to a different hotel. Unfortunately since we already paid for so we had to oblige to stay. The hotel does not have an elevator so you have to climb the stairs if you don't mind. The room is 14' by 14', very small and dated and very noisy: you hear water running from around you and you hear people talking outside clearly. We ended up moving out of the hotel at 7:30 am the next day and would not want to ever return. On the plus side, the room is clean but since we did not use the shower, and the towels, so we cannot comment on these, but the room is very dark and very "ghetto." Another plus was the staff in the morning was much more polite. Regardless, I don't think this is a good hotel to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly, clean, convenient"
Super convenient hotel/motel on Highland near Hollywood. Easy access to the 101, and the 10. Clean, affordable, and comfortable. Every single staff person was friendly and eager to assist. Amenities are a bit bare bones, but it had everything that I needed. I will hopefully return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is good close to everything almost. Room is quite small bathroom little cramp mattress is hard but overall is ok for what you pay forGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, great price, but be careful!"
I stayed at Coral Sands for 4 nights. I would have rated the overall stay higher had it not been for what happened on Saturday night. Maybe I should have expected it, Saturday nights, LA, bars, etc., but people were coming and going from their rooms at ALL hours of the night. I think there was even some yelling at one point. I was repeatedly "jolted" […] awake by the loud slamming of the heavy wooden doors as people came in and out. I was even wearing earplugs!!! That's how loud the banging was. Needless to say, I hardly slept that night, which was a real downer because I needed to be rested for a long day of business the next day. I would not stay here again if it was over a Fri/Sat night.

"Average hotel but Thai food surrounding"
It's not well maintain but security is good as nobody can enter the hotel premises without bypass the staff. Location is outside of Thai food if you can a fan.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, near Korean town."
Friendly staffs, clean room, will stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Me and my boyfriend stayed there 8 nights and we were fully satisfied. The hotel staff was very generous, specially Felix, he was very nice with us. The hotel is located like one-minute walk from the Subway Station, which makes it a huge pro, Hollywood main attractions are two stops ahead and Universal Studios three. Cons: the hotel definitely needs […] a bit of maintainance. I will recommend it if you are looking for a cheap and centric place. In a future I'll stay there again for sure.

"Coral Sand Rocks!!!!!"
Coral Sands is extremely well located. The staff were so nice. Room was clean, the laundry is a plus, plus and the hotel service worked perfectly. The only complaint was not being able to make the phone work but nothing there was a public phone nearby. Coral Sands rocks!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice surprise. Very friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed the jacuzzi and palm trees at night. Borders Thai town so great Thai food near by and few minutes from heart of Hollywood and Los Feliz.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing that makes me book to this hotel is the location. near metro station and the purpose of sleep. Other than that, the hotel is just 'OK' nothing fancy and nothing bad. Parking is free and secure i guess. the hotel staff is helpful and a breeze to check in and check out. However, I will stay on another and will not go back here.Genuine Expedia guest review
For a motel built in the 40s it is clean and well taken care of. I would stay again. The price is really good for the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Decent hotel with great price and location"
If you plan to take Metro to visit Hollywood and Universal studio, this is the right Hotel. It is a 2 min walk from the Hollywood/Western metro station (Red line) and a few stations away (Metro Red line) from Universal Studio. Don't forget that the staff can help you to get discount tickets to Universal Studio.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location just off Hollywood Blvd!"
IF you're just looking for reasonable, clean, safe accommodation, the Coral Sands Motel is just the spot! Great location just off Hollywood Blvd + N. Western Ave, half block from Metro. Motel has a pool, Jacuzzi, rooms are adequate for sleeping/resting, secure/safe, friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice LA motel"
Simple motel that is kept up nicely. Friendly check-in. Updated and clean. Pretty pool and courtyard area. Candles by the pool in the evening were a nice touch. Starbucks down the block.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved it there. Reasonably priced and a very helpful day staff that made it easy for us to decide how to get around. Everything was clean and the pools were and excellent temperature. A Ralphs 100 feet away was incredibly convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny room, easy to find."
The room was tiny, the grounds were nice enough, the bathroom barely had room to move. The tv was mounted on the wall but was tiny. I would consider this to be a "Botique Hotel" minus being fancy. Lol My 10yo son was having surgery at LA children's hospital and we just needed a place to eat pizza and sleep for a few hours. It served its purpose. Don't […] expect anything fancy or to be wanting to spend a lot of time in your room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Coral Sands stay 1/8/14 - 1/14/14"
This hotel was exactly what we needed: Great location and a secure, comfortable place to sleep. The hotel has free parking and is within a 10 minute drive to Universal Studios / Warner Bros, 30 minute drive to the beaches, 15 minute drive to downtown, 20 minutes to Beverly Hills. If you don't feel like driving, there is a metro stop on the same corner […] of the street. Ralph's Supermarket is next door, which is a great place to pick up food, toiletries, and beer. We walked the surrounding area (Thai Town) a couple evenings and enjoyed the local restaurants and bars. All around great experience, and we will definitely use this hotel again when we return.

"Coral Sands Motel close to everything in Hollywood"
Although Corals Sands at first glance seems to be nothing great, it's located minutes from all the tourist sights on Hollywood Blvd, close to all freeways and gives one easy access to anywhere you need to go in Los Angeles.

I will never stay at this place again. Pics were misleading. Trash all over coGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In bad need of updating"
I wanted a cheap hotel with no frills and that's exactly what I got. But the hotel is in bad need of updating the exterior. The room was clean, but you would never guess it by the appearance of the hotel. I probably would try to find something else next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BASIC ROOM- GOOD LOCATION"
Location is great.......close to attractions.......basic room was cheaper than Motel 6 and suited my needs. I would recommend it. Quiet neighbors - cable tv-air conditioner and heater, coffe maker.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the room is so smelly.. I couldnot sleep in it. I almost got sick while the time I stayed there. avoid!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rose Bowl Trip"
We were looking for place to stay while we were in town for the Rose Bowl and were somewhat price sensitive. This hotel fit the bill. It is across the street from a redline station and you can be at Union Station in 20 minutes. The hotel seemed like it was right next to Thai town and there were a number of restaurants in walking distance. There is also […] a conveniently located Ralphs and Starbucks. However, the area seemed pretty quiet after dark. And may be "up and coming". (Our taxi driver was not a fan of the area.) The rooms themselves were functional if a little cramped. But for the price and location, it made sense for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The bathroom is small, but everything else is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The motel was much better than I expected it. It was my first time staying at a motel, I was with my mom and worried that it would be dirty and nasty, but it turned out to be very clean, with a huge bed (biggest bed I've ever seen) and pretty comfortable. The staff of the motel was great! They were nice, helpful and worried about our well being. The […] metro is just on the corner! I'd definitely recommend that place for someone who can't spend a lot of money with a nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here last minute because the reviews were decent and the price was OK for the area. We knew we were in a 2-3 star place so expectations were low. The room was clean, staff was friendly enough and it was near everything we were doing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cost-effective choice in Hollywood Area"
If you have a limit budget of staying hotel and want to find a cozy, clean and easily transportation hotel to stay in LA. I will recommend this hotel. Spend two nights in this motel. It is 5 minutes walk to the red line metro which may lead you to the Universal Studio Hollywood and Center Hollywood Area.Also, you may go to another direction and change […] to purple line to eat in Korean town to directly to Union Station to take the bus to Las Vegas or San Francisco. The staff are very friendly and will show you how to use the transportation. Beside the Motel, there is a plaza which locates Chase, Wells Fargo ATM, Ross, Starbucks.

"In Hollywood you get what you pay for."
Well, this was one of the least expensive with one of the best locations for my situation so all I can say is you get what you pay for in the room. All the entries for the rooms are through the lobby and if you even have more then 1 guest in your room they will take that guest license until they return. The location is great , right next door to a Chase […] and a very nice Ralph's store. The actual motel comes across as dirty and needing a lot of maintenance. Again though, you get what you pay for and the location was very good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this place!"
Great location right next to a super cute shopping center so I would wake up and get coffee in the mornings! Beautiful garden! Cute area to have tea by the pools. Super friendly staff. Good safe parking. Pretty rooms. Great price! For those for u who said it smells like cleaner it's because they just put chlorine in the pool duh lolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good enough to go back to"
For me this is a good value and fine location on drives down into LA from the north. Free on-site parking, need some major thoroughfares that make getting around easy and I love the nearby Thai restaurant choices. Having found this property, I really have no need to keep searching for other accommodations and often simply re-book here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Coral Sands Motel"
My stay at the Coral Sands Motel was delightful. Brain was a sweetheart he was very helpful. The room was nice, clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was excellent close to hollywood walk of fame and etc. When I returened to Southern California I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great litle motel but LOUD!"
This little motel was clean and in a great location. However, the morning we were going to leave the maids were vacuuming right outside our room and talking very loudly! The walls are thin and they were right in front of our window! Woke us up crazy early, like 7am. That was the only part of the stay that was bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was nice but ac old fashionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great price for an overnight stay."
The staff was very friendly and were happy to offer lots of information concerning the area attraction's. The room was small, but neat, quiet and clean. The building is old, but so is everything in the area. Very pleasant visit, though short. The pool /jacuzzi/garden area was inviting! Too bad we didn't have time to enjoy it!Genuine Expedia guest review
Rms small courtyard is niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great parking and wifi. Hotel staff was exemplary. The exterior is a bit tattered (wabi sabi) but I don't mind- it's a old motel in the Hollywood and the courtyard is a wonderful time warp- reminded me of Key West somehow. The room (2nd floor) was better than I expected- quiet and all- even the windows open for good cross ventilation. For the price, […] location, and amenities (laundry, cable, phone, ice, fridge, in-room safe, and modest jacuzzi- it is more than fair and the rooms are big too. Leave your car in the lot and walk to all. Very safe and well monitored. The neighborhood is urban so take care as you would in any city setting- everything you need within a block! The subway is just steps away and will take you where you need to go. These sorts of places tend to disappear- I hope this doesn't- it is definitely a prize. I will be back! Just remember- it is a motel- not anything fancy pants for finicky types. Thanks again to the staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Value, after all it is a Motel"
First thing you notice is the shady location and then (like everyone mentioned) the narrow parking, but her its free. The front desk guy was cool but yeah the hotel isn't a brand new and shiny place. Once you get to your room its a decent room with everything needed. The location is prime and it eve had a hot tub, which some European girls were in late […] at night enjoying. All in all its a good value place once you get over the outside rough exterior. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
