Nice hotel, lovely service,

Conveniently close to Downtown LA
Hollywood Inn Express South is located in Historic Filipinotown close to Downtown LA. Its rooms are fine and its receptionists as well as cleaning personal very friendly. However, the waterpipes are quite loud - if somebody is taking a shower in room nearby, one will be awakened by the noise of the pipes... I also didn't like that other guests smoked weed in front of my room and the smoke went via the air condition directly into my room. Unlike the noise from the pipe, I could sort this out myself by telling the smokers to kindly pollute the air somewhere else...

Overall its really good. Clean place, very spacious room for the 6 of us (3 queen beds), the room can accomodate even 20 people lol. Its convenient for us, close to convention center, close to hollywood boulevard not a walking distance but uber fare is pretty fair and there is a 7 eleven, subway, even filipino restaurant 😘 in the area by walk. For the 6 of us, price is really good.

Checking in at the last minute
Upon my checking, my room I wasn’t ready until an hour later. I stayed for 3 nights and never got new towels nor room service. I had to ask for towels at the front desk. But other than that my stay was great. The room was great and spacious.

Great cheaper option in Los Angeles
Everything as expected. Great cheaper option. Service was good and room was clean. Only disappointment was parking. Seems like the parking lot's capacity is less than the motel's. You may have to park in some unofficial spot making the thoroughfare really tight. Single entrance contributes to car clogs.
