I loved how the hotel was a nice 15 minute walk to Hollywood Cemetery. My flight home got cancelled and was rebooked for the next day. It was very convenient to be able to text the hotel and extend my stay by a night, as well as ask any questions that I had!

In town for an event, we chose the hotel because our friends recommended it and we like supporting student-centered businesses in college towns. It’s an older building so be prepared for slow elevators and older pipes but those things are overlooked due to the friendly and accommodating staff. Everyone was helpful and seemed generally nice and very interested in the guests’ satisfaction. Small restaurant had good coffee. The dog policy is a huge bonus and we will keep that in mind when traveling with ours.
