    Picturesque, charming, historic.

    I loved the photos on the walls of the great Hollywood stars, the beautiful lobby area, the large refrigerator in our room, the complimentary water and coffee.

    The bathroom was so small it required thought to maneuver.

    This hotel was a disappointment. We had to check out one night earlier than planned. The hotel is still under going major maintenance, the rooms are stuffy and carpets are dirty. It was definitely not worth the money. The existing ratings and reviews are fairly misleading.

    Great value

    I had no issues with this hotel and stayed here for a week. However I always adjust my expectations to what I pay for... Of course it's not the Ritz Carlton but everything is very convenient and my room/bathroom was very clean at all times. It is true that there is a little (old) odor when you first enter the room. However this hotel is built in 1927...

    Historic - has not changed much since it was built

    The clerk was friendly and very personable. He was a delight to deal with in checking in and out. The front facade and doors are lovely.

    The rooms are VERY bare. They seriously have not changed much with any modern upgrades. The mattress was historic as well, along with not a fitted sheet, but a flat sheet simply thrown over mattress. The mattress corner looked like it was drug down the street, as the edges were tattered as least on one end. No phone in the rooms, very small bathroom with a changing shower temperature while you are in the shower.

    It's okay I understand this place is old but overall I did sleep good. Mini fridge is great. They did a awsome job refilling shampoo and soaps. Clean towels.

    Shower temperature went super high when others are using the water. Yikes hot lol. Good news is no roaches. ants yes but it's not omg bad just a few.

    Staff was nice

    The room was small and smelly. The bathroom was tiny and grouse. No shower curtain, so all the floor outside the shower was socked. The soup was the cheapest kind that immediately dries the skin. Uncomfortable bed and pillows. Lots of noise through out the night from the main street below. I will NEVER go there again!!
