It was brightly lit when we got back at night. It had continental breakfast (good hot chocolate). Workers were friendly and about at night. It still had room keys - actual keys, not the card type. There was a window between the front desk and guests (similar to a bank teller window).

Staff was friendly and accommodating, room was clean and bathroom was better than expected. Easy to walk to Koreatown from motel. Bed was like a slab of concrete and pillows were fluffy but squished down into paper thin pillows with no support.

Best hotel for the money in LA, period. Can't say enough good things about it. We stay in LA a lot and good, inexpensive hotels are hard to find. Staff is super friendly and the room was well kept. This place is a definiately stay again hotel.
The Friendship Motor Inn surpassed our expectations. It was extremely clean. The Manager was great, and extremely intentional with his services. He called to ask if we wanted breakfast before closing. The area was quiet. Great Mattress. Would Recommend!!. If I had one complaint it was their super hard soap.

The room had a Nice firm bed with a large tv and cable. The plumbing fixtures seemed to be new and nice quality and plenty of hot water. The room was clean and it had a mini fridge and microwave. The manager was nice and very attentive, great location The room had a slight musty smell like a smoker had been in there,room was a little small and the bathroom fan and a/c unit were a little noisy. The Door had old style key locks not self locking and with no saftey chain or bar and didn't self close.
The owners are really friendly and the rooms were clean and cool. For the price of this place, I felt like I scored big time. Great value, great room, great experience. 10/10 would stay here again.
comfortable room no swimming pool
Very helpful staff and great location. Quick access to Universal Studio, Hollywood walk of fame, Koda and Chinese theatre, and just 5 mi from LA downtown. Also, free parking is a bonus.
large room, cozy beds, sofa also! internet connection was too bad
The service are excellence. Mr Paco is the most helpful. Na
Good location, with free parking.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location a block from hollywood blvd and the underground station. Very spacious room with nice floors, tv etc. Towels chlorine smell rathwr than fresh detergent
We are a family and really enjoyed our stay at the HCI. The staff was everytime helpful and friendly. The location is close to all attraction of Hollywood. What my wife liked most, was the arrangement of roses around the pool, a small oasis. we were totally satisfied and would come back to stay there.
Very friendly/professional staff. Quiet location. Room was clean. Great working AC unit. Free breakfast. 5 minutes from Hollywood Blvd. I always choose to stay here when I visit LA. Highly recommend! No iron/ironing board in room. Not enough parking spaces. That's about it.
I liked the location and the friendliness of the staff. The room and the bathroom were outdated, but it wasn't a real problem, everything worked fine.
The excellent proximity to Hollywood tourist sites and very close to metro train station. Friendliness and help of staff.
Location, next to Hollywood boulevard. Roses round the pool. Facility. The description of the hotel in booking was false. There are no facilities, that were mentioned in the description. There are no any plate, fork, pot or anything of the kind to cook, only plastic glasses, though there is a microwave oven.
in the first room we found little bugs in the beds after the 1st night. Could change room, 2nd one was okay but our confidence was gone. Old room was given to tourists the same day. When did they put some chemicals to kill the insects???
This motel offers a good ratio value / price. Very well located (not far from Hollywood main points of interest). Free parking for our car. Excellent croissants for breakfast.
Room's were clean and the beds comfortable. They advertise a pool, but its more of a large bathtub, don't expect to go swimming. As mentioned in previous post, the staff is not friendly..
Our stay there was great, other than the fact that TWO TIMES the cleaning staff opened the door, without even knocking, prior to checkout time, the first of which was 9:30am while my boyfriend and I were still in bed, asleep.
Nothing Everything was just horrible the rooms were dirty the blankets had holes the towels were dirty also so was the bathroom not enough soap or shampoo breakfast was nasty .. really bad experience for me and my family!!
I loved the price of the hotel room! My girlfriend and I split the room for a concert we were attending in la, and the location/price was perfect! Loved the parking situation, so convenient :) The room was not furnished (shampoo, towels, etc.) and seemed a wee bit on the dingy side. but other than that it was great!
I liked the option for 3 beds in one room. The room was kinda funky. Soso with cleanliness. The bathroom looked like someone had a fight in there and broke the toilet and tp holder.
It was nice and peaceful!
Th hotel was fine... nothing fancy for the quoted 89.00 a night but not for an extra 30.00 was not worth it we could have paid 10.00 more and staid at the embassy suits you had to pay for ice local calls were 10.00 to open phone line .50 a minute. there was not much hotel service or friendliness My son asked what time the pool closed he was told now he was disappointed well people were in there for another 45min to 1hr he could have been in and out and been happy but we didn't go
easy to access public transportation, comfort stay
The room was large and well set up for comfort. The desk staff was courteous and helpful. My room (106) was next to the microwave, so people were talking and beeping outside my door at all hours of the night. The door to the room was not hung well, so there were large gaps for critters to enter at their will and that kept the room chilly. The light over the sofa was nonfunctioning for our entire four-night stay, even when I asked for a new light bulb. The free breakfast, although appreciated, was a scant offering, and could have been extended until 10:00; at 8:30 there was never any milk left, so our only options were doughnuts and juice. People in the parking lot were obnoxious, honking for the other guests and playing music so loudly that the room actually vibrated.
Good parking place,convient location
Our room had 3 beds. Sinks were outside of bathroom, convenient. Microwave available downstairs. Modern furnishings. A/C was great. Free wifi. Pool. Breakfast. Room was gross. Moldy ceilings in bathroom, you can smell it. After walking on the carpet, our feet were black. There were stains on our sheets and there may have been bed bugs, my friend had bites. Only able to have one car per room. You have to pay for ice. A little too far from Hollywood blvd area. Really hard to see oncoming traffic when pulling out of the driveway.
The location is a nice central location to several sights in the area. The price is inviting. Arrived at 3pm and despite the 4pm checkin time we were allowed to check in. Most discouraging thing was the bed was rock hard. I was simply using the hotel for sleeping and showering. We spent a lot of time out seeing sights. The shower was very short and had low water pressure. It took along time to get warm water. The shower curtain was bent and it would continually slide open while showering. We never ate at the breakfast. There was one type of cereal and donuts available.
only the location I will neither stay there again nor recomend this place to anyone
Clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was actually ok. Cable was good. Wifi Codes had to be printed to you every 24 hours. Got annoying. And then the wifi wouldn't load or do anything at peak times.
The location was nice and it was the only reason why we even considered this restaurant. Misleading website! If we knew what we know now about this place we wouldn't have made reservation even if it's at the best location. There is nothing to like about the stay.
Near to the Hollywood center and Metro Station
The full breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Walking distance to shopping and tourist attractions. You can also catch the metro right across the street. Could hear sirens several times through the night. Not the best area of town but we felt safe.
Very poor breakfast.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast and the coolest sign in Hollywood!!
proximity to Metro Rail station to get to the tourist parts of Hollywood Blvd and very easy to get to Universal Studios. There is a breakfast included and free parking and wifi Towels are small and very snug parking in back, would not recommend parking an SUV, and there is no elevator and breakfast is a bit lacking
customer service was friendly Beds were uncomfortable. Bathroom mediocre
One of the best things is that this hotel is very close to the metro. The room was very good also. no.
Close to everything, easy to find, very friendly & helpful staff Clean but shabby, no water pressure/bad showerheads, very very firm beds were uncomfortable, a/c worked well but very loud
Our room was given to someone else but at least we still got a room with a King size bed for the same price. neighborhood around the hotel was dilapidated
The complimentary breakfast was very good & the reception are helpful.
The price and location are great! Free parking was offered and there is good Wi-Fi Connection in the rooms for free. The breakfast has really improved from my last stay. Ground floor rooms are quite not sound proof, and noises from the outside could be somewhat disturbing.
room was clean, basic, staff was OK but not informative. street noise at all hours of the day
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Great location, the staff has been real friendly and helpful and the rooms are good.
Very central to get to places of interest ie Hollywood Boulevard A bit of traffic noise as the hotel is on a busy road
Staff was very friendly. Location is good.
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.
The Sahara is in an excellent location, offered many amenities and represented great value for money.
Clean and roomy. Not bad for the $$$. I'll stay here again!
The room itself was a great size, comfortable. The two staff I met were very cold. Not enough lighting in the room.
It's very quaint charming hotel. Ran by a husband and wife that were very pleasant and accommodating. The room was very clean and had a 42' flat screen with direct tv. It looks like they are in the process of remodeling.The walls had spackle as though they are in the process of painting. There were no shampoos in the bathroom, hangers in the closet, or dishes in the kitchen. Def not a three star
Great budget motel for the price. Clean and safe but not fancy. Will stay there again.
Good value for money.This hotel is best for tourism not for business related stays. Unusable WIFI connection for business use. Connection was only usable for rooms near the lobby. I was not able to connect to my company email during the stay due to restricted bandwidth.
staff very rude, old room and not very clean.
The last nite it poored water from the bathroom ceiling have video. They said they were over booked!!could not move us. They said just keep towels under the leak!!very noisy upstairs. My 8 year old stepped on a sharp object. Had 2 room for 3 nites and cancelled one nite ,,,,, what a hassle
The size of the room and its comfort was far beyond what I expected. I was pleasantly surprised. Good value for money. Staff was not very helpful and could not provide much information.
We chose this inn because it was right on Hollywood Blvd, where the Thai New Year event was being held, so the location was good. It was also quiet during the night. The inn was dirty: the sheets had holes and stains, the curtains had stains, and the chairs had stains. I couldn't connect to their wifi either.
The location, the little pool. The King room for 3 (a room with two queen beds should been proposed by booking), no coffee available the morning.
I liked when we finally checked out The horrible man at the 'front desk' sets the mood for the entire stay.
Like the near places, shopping and others Some of the stuff in the hotel is old, dirty chairs and has holes on it.
convenient location and price breakfast
Location, if you are driving you can go quickly everywhere. They offer wireless internet. Breakfast is poor but adequate with hotel category.
It's close to the wak of fame. The front office is smelly and staff sleep during the night so you have to ring a bell to wake them up. There is a gate in the parking that closes at night so you have to leave the car and wake staff up so they can open it. One of those times when I went to the front office a girl was there complianing about cockroaches in her room. The mattress was dusty and gave me allergy.
I liked the location which enabled me to walk everywhere I needed to be, the architecture and the fact there were always staff around. Eating places were right there and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We needed a little more hand holding to get TV, wifi and showers to work than we should have ( and instructions in a binder in the room would have been all it takes), and the altercation on the balcony outside our room in the middle of the night was allowed to escalate and continue longer than it should before intervention. That said we payed budget prices and got better than budget service so we were happy.
Nothing Bed was uncomfortable and squeaked with every move, very , very little hot water Issues with turning tv on , not clean Would never stay there again
Nothing about the Inn, but it was close to Universal Studios shuttle bus. Rude staff, extremely small parking lot, hard bed. Uncomfortable & dissatisfied. Couldn't get my money back.
This was very much misrepresented, in your pictures My room was so tiny it was difficult to walk in the room. They put me in a tiny room with a window...about 2X2 with the shade pulled down. When I raised the shade there was a block wall inches from the window. The TV was decrepid . (Old) No remote. The air conditioner was so high on a wall I had to stand on a chair (Broken down) to push button controls. Never do business with them or your "Site" again. And, I will warn friends and family about how your site misreprested this HOLE IN THE WALL !!
Pro: within walking distance to shuttle for Universal Studios and the bus/subway station. Staff was very friendly and helpful. "Breakfast" consisted of donuts, coffee, and juice. Room was small, but it included AC that worked well, a TV, and a separate bathroom. Neighboring rooms were quiet. Free parking. Close to the freeway. Con: the tiny room was probably 10 ft by 10 ft. The box spring loudly squeaked with any movement on the bed. We booked the room expecting a queen bed, but it was a full bed. Nothing like snuggling up really close. :-) Ice machine is in the office/front desk, so if the office is closed, you have to get the attention of the staff to let you in. Breakfast is also in the small office. AC is located high up on the wall, so we had to stand on a chair to change the settings.
The subway couldn't be more close. Dropped us off just a stone throws away from the hotel. Perfect location for walking to subway and universal studios. Yes, it was a complete dump. But we expected it and choose it for the price and location. Towels were paper thin. Bring your own! Scary lady who offered us drugs and said she LIVED down the hall.
it has an excellent location to walk to universal studios use a good air freshener when rooms are vacant to avoid the humidity odor.
It's walking distance to Universal Studios. On the Ad it says there is breakfast. There is was no breakfast. At 8:00am I had to ring the door bell to get any coffee. They didn't have anything to eat. The lady went across the street to get me a donut. Very poor service. They should not advertise breakfast, this is misleading.
Very close to Universal Studios. (10 minutes walk) Very unfriendly staff. (exept an older lady) The promissed continental breakfast is awfull and there is no service whatsoever. They acted like being unhappy with any guest. Don.t go over here. The Bathroom was not clean enough (espacially round the windows) To much money for this poor hotel.
The hotel was nice and clean. I think they have renovated recently. The location is perfect as the hotel is at the walking distance (10 min) to universal studio and citywalk.
The room was dirty and stinky
This is the worst hotel in my life and I was on all continents!!! room without windows, dirty carpet, black-beatles in restroom, one word: big disaster
Great Location and good price
it is close to Holywood it is more like a doss-house
The location was great for my trip. My room was on the ground floor on Sunset boulevard, with the windows of my room just feet from the sidewalk. I was kept up all night by folks walking Sunset at all hours of the night.
Good location. The parking lot was little too small.
THE PLACE WAS IMMACULATE CLEAN.. VERY REASONABLE LARGE ROOM WITH FLAT SCREEN TV. NOTHING...
Everything was nice
This hotel room is large. This hotel room is large but has no phone service. Hair dryer is not working. The stairway is filthy. Advertised including breakfast, but no breakfast available. Do not book online with this hotel unless you see it.
Great location. Clean. Very good service at front desk. Felt safe. No bed bugs!!!!!! Parking, but the staff took care of it so it wasn't ever a problem. They will park you if you are willing to leave your keys they will take care of it for you!
Basically the price, location and size of room were acceptable Up keep of building, lack of staff assistance and lack of security.
Nothing! This is the worst hotel I stayed in. I was biten by badbugs !!! Beware!!! If You want to have pain for next week try to stay there. Dirty doors with blood spots left after bedbugs killing
Parking lot is very good Location of the hotel front desk good house keeping nice ILIKE that place I have no problem
Location Price Parking
room was made every day
The price was great, the room was clean and comfortable. The staff was nice. Great location--close to downtown Hollywood. Parking is atrocious if the place is full. Not the best area of town, but not terrible.
Simple... The place is gross, the 2 kids running the place are assholes & the towels are the size of a hand towel. If you complain about anything they act like its your problem. Look for a better location & stay away from this place. Everything! Mainly the young punks that think the world owes them something. The maid lady was the best thing about this place.
The price is quite reasonable for the condition of the room. The room was strongly scented, which gave me a bad headache every time I got back.
Happy with value, location, cleanliness and comfort. Also with inclusions such as fridge, microwave, coffee maker, ice machine etc. Breakfast was OK. The desk staff could have made a better effort at friendliness and helpfulness. The neighbourhood seemed a bit low class left us feeling a bit uncomfortable.
front desk was helpful. room was clean.
nearby chinatown, It's easy to find chinese food. It's very near street and nosey.
I liked the location of the Super 8. We went to a Dodger game. No.
Very close to Dodger stadium. Easy walk to the game and a neighborhood bar.
larger space in the room as comparing to other Super 8. Free breakfast includes made-yourself waffle (some other Super 8 don't) the neighoring area wasn't as bad as we thought (downtown LA) bit smell in the room, but manageable.
Reasonable prices for quality stay
close to the area we needed to be in
