Seit Montag sind die Schulferien in Kalifornien vorüber. Ansonsten wären wir nicht auf die Idee gekommen, dem Achterbahn-Park "Six Flags Magic Mountain" einen Besuch abzustatten. Wir möchten schliesslich nicht 2 Minuten Vergnügen mit 2 Stunden Schlange stehen bezahlen müssen. Der Eintritt beläuft sich beim aktuellen Dollarkurs auf ca. 42 …

Well, here we are in downtown L.A., we've just had pie at Clifton's after walking up here from Union Station.
We arrived last night, expertly driven from San Simeon by myself ( on the way to San Simeon I avoided hitting a deer on the windey coast road from San Fran, also expertly. )

At San Simeon we saw Hearst Castle, & a thousand …

Well, we made it to LA. Our time in London was so incredibly cool. Paul and Malcolm are the best hosts. We had a home away from home. The kids really enjoyed the gin and tonic time before dinner LOL. Apart from a party night with Paul, Malcolm, Dave and Kate we did do a helluva lot of sight seeing. We saw Buckingham palace, with the changing of the …

I'm Gonna be a STAR

Our accommodation for the next few nights was the Hollywood Downtowner Inn on Hollywood Boulevard. This was a nice and safe place with amazingly friendly and helpful staff, and good value for money. We were only in L.A for 2 days, so what to do? Well for our first day we checked out Universal Studios which was brilliant. We both really enjoyed it. …

... paleontologists back in 1907. Prior the Indians and early settlers used the tar for buildings etc. Very interesting place.

Next day and an early start for Hollywood. The Hollywood Highland building is the first stop for the tourist tour of the area, trolley bus style with a witty guide, full of trivia and anecdotes that kept us amused for an hour. The streets were starting to come alive with strange dudes in costumes of super heroes, other ...

    Great hotel

    Homely place, great room with excellent amenities and comfy beds....we were given a balcony too.....and breakfast was included. This place is also easy to find, straight off Hwy 101. It's close to Hollywood/Western subway station and many choices of supermarkets, cafe's & restaurants, and rates are very reasonable.
    We spent 3 nights and had a great experience....thanks Sheila!

    This is a older converted apartment block that isn't in the best of neighbourhoods. The furniture is very old as are the pictures. The rate was cheap and the staff nice.

    Hollywood Downtowner

    from

    I have stayed at the hollywood downtowner in the past and will in the future. Clean and quiet.

    Good value and good choice for the budget minded traveller.

    Don't use the phone in the room though -- it is very expensive!!

    False Advertising Bordering on Fraud

    from

    I was looking for a bargain hotel in Hollywood/West Hollywood and selected this hotel in part because of its claim of "continental breakfast." Their idea of continental breakfast is a donut and coffee.

    The room was comfortable but plaster was falling out of the ceiling (this was right after the record-setting LA rains so it is possible this was due to roof damage).

    While they claim air conditioning, the unit did not work and was uncovered. It was a cool day so this did not matter much.

    The one redeeming quality was the friendliness of the manager and his wife.

    Filthy rooms, rude manager

    from

    We booked this hotel for one night and arrived on December 23, 2004. Upon pulling up I had a very bad feeling. My Mom is disabled and cannot walk stairs, but was shown briefly a downstairs room. The lady handed her a key and walked away. As my sister and I walked in with our bags - I thought we were on MTV's boiling point or something. The lampshade was crooked, there was no light bulb, the dust on the television was very thick, as was the dresser, the closet doors were off the track and looked as if someone punched them, the a/c was covered in mildew and had horrible patchwork on it, the bathroom window was full of mold and mildew as was the shower. The toilet didn't even have a back on it, the place was a pig pin. I went to tell the manager the room was not acceptable at $79.00. She gave me a key to look at another room - one on the THIRD floor which was no better. The ceiling was damaged due to water, there was mildew all in the room.

    Fantastic Holiday Experience

    from

    Wow! What more can I say! We stayed at this property two years ago and were impressed then and nothing has swayed us from that opinion.

    Funny place but good value

    from

    Stayed here in Feb 2003 on a bargain trip to L.A...budget was very important to me and this was the cheapest i could find! Old fashioned decor but clean and comfy, very basic bathroom but a great base for those on a budget. Superb location...you can walk with ease to the chinese theatre and all the sights or just a few yards away is a metro stop which is very cheap, clean and easy to use. Public transport there was fab. Breakfast was just doughnuts and coffee, which is great if you like them! Even my kids were fed up of doughnuts by the 3rd day...but the fridge in the room is great! Pool very cold in feb so didn't try it!

    Loud at night

    from

    I stayed here in september 2003 and payed 59 a night. We stayed there for four nights and it wasn't that bad. Sure, the place and the rooms are a little bit old, the parking around the motel is too small. It is very close to the Highway and everything is very accessible from there.

    But, I would not recommend it, since the neighbourhoud isn't that wonderful. On the other hand, Pierre (the night guard I think) is a very nice guy. If you speak French, it's nice to talk to him in French. LOL

    I'll be back in LA next year, but I don't think I'll stay in this motel. Yes, they have a nice pool, but the place is just too loud at night. But that's to be expected on Hollywood Boulevard.

    I liked the Hollywood Downtower Inn

    from

    For the rate charged for the Downtower, I thought it was a good central base, with a metro station on your doorstep and surrounded by many bus routes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was always cleaned well each day. It was also very useful to have a fridge in the room as there was a Ralph's supermarket on the corner to buy any snacks.

    I was there in 2003 and I think that the writer of the bad review would be better next time to pay the extra in stay in West Hollywood rather than the east.

    Not reccomendable

    from

    I wouldn't recommend this Inn coz the room is small, the toilet is awful! They do not have an elevator, so I have to carry 2 huge and heavy luggages for 3 storeys (highest).

    If you got an irritating neighbours that always comes back very late in the night, you will definitely be awaken. You can hear every foot steps and talking noise from the your room ...

    Book at your own risk!

    Avoid

    from

    It's not worth the $62 I paid through expedia. Unless you like unsatisfying drippy, too hot/cold showers and the parking was difficult. It was either cramped, had difficult to move spaces or full (I ended up parking on the street one time). I had a better deal at econolodge at $45 with all the basic amenties working.

    Don't go near this property

    from

    Sent my son on his way to college to stay at this property. He arrived at 6PM to find they'd given his guaranteed room to a higher paying guest. Offered him the only room left with a broken air conditioner on the ground floor with no option of opening window. We called and spoke with the management who were just plain rude and obnoxious. I've worked in the travel industry for 25 years and have never had this happen. A very poor start to what was supposed to be a great road trip on the way to a new adventure. I'll never book again!! Very very disappointing!!
