    First to Review

    Even before you walk inside this hotel, you get a sense for its history. The sign outside states that it was built in 1927, and the architecture is impressive, so much so that’s on the National Register. What’s even cooler is that it used to be the go-to hotel for folks visiting Paramount Pictures, just down the street. Unfortunately, they didn’t keep great records to know exactly who stayed there and when. History aside, it’s a great find in terms of being a clean and safe budget hotel. The rates vary by the season, but they are incredibly low for what you get. Plus, WiFi and parking are included. You’ll have to drive or take public trans to get into the heart of Hollywood, but if you’re looking for a nice Italian meal within walking distance, check out Osteria La Buca.

    The name says it all-- as soon as you walk in you get a feel for old Hollywood. The building has lots of character as do the rooms. For the same price as other chain-hotels, this is a great deal. Each room comes equipped with an ironing board, blow dryer, refrigerator and coffee maker so you can make yourself right at home. You also get a free parking spot in their lot out back, which in LA is a definite plus! The location isn't ideal, but you're still not too far from the heart of Hollywood or Silvrlake/Echo Park.
