I chose the Quality Inn because of it's location. I wanted something close to the Catalina Jazz Club and Hollywood Walk of Fame. While there were other accommodations in that same general area I decided on the Quality Inn after reading many reviews. I arrived in Hollywood a little earlier than expected and the staff was nice enough to let me check in early. The room was large, clean and equipped with a tv, coffee maker, refrigerator and internet capabilities. I did not use any of these other than the fridge for some bottled water. There was also a spacious closet with an iron and ironing board. They provided shampoo, soap and lotion as well. I was thrilled to see they also had a hairdryer in the room. Unfortunately that always is not the case in some hotels. For their guests they also provide a free continental breakfast. However I had already made breakfast plans so I did not use this service. There was an ample amount of towels and the shower was wonderful. The bed was fantastic. Not too firm or soft but just right. It was actually more comfortable than my bed at home. The room was located on the first floor facing the courtyard but near the street. It was very quiet and I was not bothered by any noise. The Inn is located on North LaBrea and within a few blocks away from the Walk of Fame and the Catalina club. There is basically anything you could ever want or need in that area. There were at least three mini strip malls within a block or so away from the hotel in addition to many eateries, a 711, a Rite Aid etc... The location is awesome. You are also very close to public transportation whether it be a bus or metro train. The manager was friendly and very helpful. Checking in and out was a breeze. I will definitely be staying there again and highly recommend it to other travelers.
I stayed at this Quality Inn for 1 night. Wednesday, April 1st 2015. I stopped by early afternoon to park my rental car and visit the Hollywood and Highland area. It really is not that far away by walking. And when the traffic is as heavy as it was, walking there is probably quicker. I arrived and did not notice the driveway at the front door off of La Brea. So I went around the corner on Lanewood Ave and parked in a spot that ended up facing my hotel room door. Check in was fast and I had my room key in no time. The room key doubles as the swipe card for the underground parking entrance gate. Located on Lanewood Ave. The underground parking area can be a bit tight if you had a larger vehicle. I had a small rental car and it was very manageable. My room was clean, spacious and comfortable. I had a king bed that was very comfortable and the pillow was above average for my comfort. The shower was clean and worked well. And the bathroom sink and counter area was clean. The tv worked fine. Wifi worked fine too. The room had a microwave and mini fridge. The traffic noise could be a bit bothersome to some, but I managed quite well wearing ear plugs. I felt secure enough in my room after seeing the locked gates and doors around the facility. I was quite comfortable. I did not use the pool or take advantage of the breakfast. The price I paid was very fair. If the price was right again on a future visit, I would certainly stay here again.
This hotel is about a ten-minute walk to Grauman's Chinese Theatre and to the Red line Metro which is veryconvenient. We arrived at Los Angeles Airport and took the FlyAway bus to Union Station. After touring the Downtown area-- El Pueblo, Little Tokyo, the Bradbury Building, the Walt Disney Concert Hall-we walked to the Red Line Metro station "Civic Center" and took it to the station "Hollywood/Highland," which is very near the hotel. Please note that it is a good idea to buy a Metro TAP card at Union Station. We bought a 7-day unlimited one ($21.00) You can also pay exact change ($1.50,but you usually need 2 buses and there are no free transfers).The train, however, does not take you to many other tourist sites. Instead we used buses which are again conveniently located a half-block from this hotel. Although sometimes we had to wait a little longer than we would have liked for a Los Angeles bus, we were able to go pretty much everywhere. See the Los Angeles Metro website for directions. In fact, we found it preferable to being stuck in traffic and looking for parking. Upon leaving Los Angeles for San Diego, we rented a car from Avis to which we took the Red Line and Purple line. Again this location turned out to be convenient.
