Design Paper thin walls
The staff and service personnel were outstanding and friendly. All facilities and the room were clean and well appointed, like-new furnishings everywhere. Management handled all my needs with courtesy and respect. I highly recommend this establishment to others looking for a home away from home, and a happy atmosphere. I have stayed in may places in West Hollywood and near the strip, this is the best value for the money. Breakfast took a little too long to prepare. People on the move would not be able to wait for the service, although the food was excellent.
The staff were very friendly, and helpful when I checked in. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The mini-bar key didn't work, and it would've been nice to have a fridge to keep some drinks in the fridge, but I didn't inquire with the staff, and I assume they would've rectified that for me if I had. Nice and central, so traveling for business doesn't mean limited options for food and amenities.
The staff was amazing!! So helpful! The rooms were very comfortable!! The beds were great!! We had a room with a view, and it was fantastic. The one big thing that I didn't like was, that there was no fridge in the room. We asked for one and got one for a small charge. The other only thing I didn't like was, that there was no microwave in the room.
Hotel was beautiful! Staff was friendly and attentive. Location was fantastic! Our room had a phenomenal view of the Hollywood sign. Pool was gorgeous. All in all, it was the best experience we could have hoped for on our first trip to Tinseltown.
As soon as we stepped out of the car we were treated with such surprising care. The man at valet, Ever (that's his name- EVER, how cute is that?) was so nice that my fiancée and I looked at each other and just shook our heads and laughed. We weren't used to customer service like this. We went to check in early, 1pm, and Melanie at the front desk was able to upgrade us to a corner suite! The entire staff was so professional but without being too stuffy. The hotel was beyond our expectations. Not a big deal but there was one little Q-tip outside our room for our stay. We kind of joked that they gave us the Q-tip suite. We also couldn't find coffee in the morning inside the hotel. We had our coffee maker in the room but needed more and didn't want to pay $15 for a pot of coffee at the restaurant.
Loved the location of this hotel. Service was great as well!
The staff was great. It was right in the middle of Hollywood, nice and clean. Loved the shopping connected to it.
Full service, location. I booked and paid for a Deluxe King Room with view of Hollywood sign. I received a room near the elevators with a constant machine and elevator running noise. I asked to be moved and was told someone would be right up and after 10 minutes I grew tired of waiting and went down to the front desk. This was already 11PM. I was taken to a new room that had an adjoining door with a party going on in the adjacent room. I asked to be moved AGAIN, eventually to a room with queen bed. The beds were too soft for my taste. There was a curly hair on the soap dish in the shower. I will never stay there again.
The hotel was located in a perfect location. I was close to everything I wanted to be near. The pool and other facilities was the best. The room was also very cozy.
The mattresses were too old and lacked firmness.
Staff was ecellent Parking a little too expensive
IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME TO CALIFORNIA FOR MY WIFE AND I ,WE WERE VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE HOTEL .HOW SPOTLESS EVERYTHING WAS.THE MEN IN THE CONCEIER DESK CHRIS,AND NINO WHERE VERY HELPFUL.THE BUFFET BREAKFEAST WAS THE BEST.
Close to all attractions in Hollywood, good breakfast, very friendly staff and the luggage storage was a bonus
Location Seems like they may have a problem with people entering he back door from the hills. A door alarm was going off one evening and they seem to shut down the elevator in the back for this reason as well which is a little concerning.
Great breakfast / location Parking expensive
The Staff was excellent, very helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms could be updated.
location was really good no breakfast
Location The sound of aircondition
locations was awesome, parking was sort of tight, and the lights went out on the street our lastnight there ( I imagine that wasn't the hotels fault), but all in all, great location/hotel for weekend stay , close to everything
Location. Did not have a locker facility.
We were very happy with our one night stay here. The rooms are on the smaller side, but very comfortable. We had a refridgerator and a microwave too. The location is fantastic. There is a 24-hour Subway about a block away (in case you need late night food), as well as a Starbucks. There is a lot of traffic nearby but we didn't notice it much with our room door closed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The parking spots are tiny (be careful if you have a larger size vehicle) and they did fill up by late night, so if you get there late you may not have many to choose from. They do charge $15 to park, but considering the loxation I didn't think that was too bad.
I had friends visiting from the UK that had never been to Southern California, so I booked them at this hotel. Location was ideal for tourists, and we took the Red Line down to the USC game, also ideal. The staff allowed me to keep my car in the parking lot for an extra 5-6 hours on the day of checkout, which I really appreciated. Next time I go to a show at Bowl, I might even stay there myself.
Centrally located Not enough parking! No breakfast!
Efficient staff very good room low price The swimming pool close at nine pm :-)
good location. 10 minutes walk to Hollywood Blv. 2 minutes drive to I-10. So convinient for visitors. no breakfast included. internet is not as fast as i expected.
Old. Dirty. Poor staff. Smelled really bad.
A convinient location. Easy for parking
Hotel has some quirks. It is very easy to lock yourself out of the bathroom by inadvertantly pushing the lock button when exiting the bathroom. In addition the bedframes are made of hardwood and are very easy to walk into.
Parking is not included in stay. $32 a day.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We were there to be on the Kelly and Michael show after the Oscars. The staff could not have been nicer our room was clean and comfy. I would like to give a shout out the the bartender (Chris). He was very friendly and helpful. We quite enjoyed our conversations with him. Can't think of a thing.
Extremely friendly front desk staff who were helpful at all times. The valet manager was also extremely nice and always very pleasant. The rooms were clean and updated with a microwave and fridge. There was always coffee, drinks and a snack out by the front desk. A very nice hotel and reasonably priced for the location. Will definitely stay there again if ever in the area. There was a valet and fee to park each day ($32!) but since it's within walking distance to walk of fame I understand why they do it so tourists don't park there.
- Fresh and well-maintained hotel (especially considering its age) - Very cool decor in the main areas and rooms are well-appointed - Very nice staff - Pool is nice (although it can be crowded during the day, and has a 'bouncer' stationed at the entrance - this is needed given the popularity, but is a little much) - The first room I stayed in was small, had a view of nothing but the rooftop A/C units, and had incredibly noisy ventilation system. The very polite front desk staff moved me to a different (and much nicer) room upon request - $10 bottles of water in the room. Come on guys, a complimentary bottle of water won't kill the margins. - 'Hotel-branded' flip flops for sale at $20 instead of the inexpensive complimentary slippers that are normally available at hotels of this level
Music was great as well as quality of guests. Staff were very rude and not helpful. Would not accept cash for incidental room fee
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location, very close to many tourist attractions. Great restaurants and bars inside hotel. Very cool atmosphere Very hard to sleep in when staying by the pool. Lots of noise every morning from both the hallway and the pool. Hallways smell like weed. Even though we knew we had to pay for parking, $36 a night is a bit extreme
The hotel is tired. It has two elevators that hold ten passengers. One of the elevators was often out of order. Sometimes there were guests stuck in the elevator. There was no way to use the stairs so wait times to get to our room were long. Our room was small. The TV was not working well. Mediocre at best.
The service and room were phenomenal N/a
I told them we were staying for a special occasion and they had the availability to upgrade our room. Very accommodating made the night special for us, despite the many events happening in and arround the hotel (holiday parties etc.)
Location, concierge was nice, and the pool was fabulous
Great rooms. Great bar. Wonderful onsite restaurants. Wonderful location. Fantastic staff.
i liked the look of the rooms. They were nicely decorated. The size of the pool was great - lots of room for everyone. The location was very convenient to a Metro and to the touristy area. The pool area was a little confusing. It was hard to tell which chairs were taken. The chairs by the shallow end of the pool were occupied by people who didnt seem to want to get wet which was frustrating. The hotel room felt like a store. Too many items for sale. This also took up precious space for personal items.
Everything. Joe at front desk was sooo nice The rain!! Booo
My room smelled terrible. I didn't like the staff because they were very rude to me for walking around the hotel at night.
The decor and friendly staff, the 24hr diner and the pool party. The lift was close by and was a little noisy early hours of the morning.
Staff was very friendly. Location is good.
Great location, the staff has been real friendly and helpful and the rooms are good.
Room was comfortable and clean, people were nice and helpful. Location was good if someone wants to to see Hollywood. The bathroom was rather tiny and the AC noisy
room was clean, basic, staff was OK but not informative. street noise at all hours of the day
Very central to get to places of interest ie Hollywood Boulevard A bit of traffic noise as the hotel is on a busy road
I liked location and generally it is cute hotel to stay. I would like the toilet and bath facilities to be cleaner. Some hair were found there when we arrived. Not so nice. Breakfast was good. But may be some variations in meal would be great.
Rooms and facilities were clean and well-kept. The pool at the center of the hotel looked inviting. Front desk staff was incredibly unfriendly (but that's just one person). The location of the room on a very busy and loud street was unfortunate - no sleep without earplugs, and you had to crank up the volume on the TV all the way just to hear over the street noise. I assume the rooms on the other side of the building are not as loud.
The Sahara is in an excellent location, offered many amenities and represented great value for money.
Very helpful reception staff. Extremely reasonable for the centre of LA. Not in the best part of Sunset Boulevard, although it's fairly close (20 minutes walk) to the main tourist attractions. Breakfast is served in the lobby with nowhere to sit.
It was a very fine hotel for a few days of travel. The first room we were given had fresh stains on the mattress. When we called down, we were accused of "touching stuff." But were then given a nicer room, despite the absence of an apology.
The location was convenient to where I needed to go for the time I was there. There was nothing in the room to tell me about wifi, and I just never bothered to ask at the desk. Parking is very tight, but free. The motel is in a bad part of town. Several cars of homeless people camping out on the side street below my window. Lots of street noise and in the morning a s-load of trash strew about on the sidewalk. I just kept my shutters closed so I did not have to see. Rooms need new furniture, light fixtures and paint. Really looks run down. Pool area surrounded by bright orange fencing makes it appear to be a construction zone. Worth less than $100 a night for sure.
I liked that it was right off Hollywood blvd, walking distance to D&B and other places to go out night we stayed Area was sketchy , people walking around looking like their on drugs
Overall 4night stay at LA Brea Inn was great would definitely stay again The room was clean but had a weird odor and parking is very hard to maneuver around.
Friendly and helpfull staff, clean rooms and a great location.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient.
Great location, close to a metro station and to a tourist bus stop. Coffee and tea at the reception 24 hours. All the staff very friendly and helpfull. Always smilling and trying to help you which I really appreciated. Breakfast very basic but not a problem for me. Some hotels around dont offer breakfast inclusive.
Location,friendly staff,complimentary breakfast and all day coffee.Very good choice would stay again.
every thing nothing
The hotel is direct in the heart of Hollywood. Friendly stuff. Big rooms with kitchen.
Location, off road parking
I think this hotel is good location, near hollywood bvd, and cheap for hotel at good location. There is no bell man, and breakfast is fair..
The location is awesome.Albin,the employee at the front desk was extremely helpful. The hotel needs renovation.The brekfast is a disaster:(
location & free parking
Room was massive for a great price. Ideally located for what we had in mind. Quiet for being so close to Hollywood Blvd.
A clean and comfortable apartment with all the necessities. Location was perfect for our needs and others who are there for Hollywood Blvd. For some this might be a little too closed to the grittier side of Hollywood.
