                Close to Hollywood and public transport.Good choice of eating places nearby. Nice pool.

                I was in a room on the ground floor near reception and near the stairs leading to upstairs rooms. It was noisy during the night with guests either arriving late or returning late from being out. Management should be on hand to control uneccesary noise.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Curtious staff, easy check in and out, clean room, not too noisy, which was a surprise, very clean courtyard and pool.

                Saharan was a tidy and inexpensive motel in a pretty good location, near Hollywood walk of fame. There were definately no bedbugs as indicated on the site, the room was very very clean.

                Only thing that was missing, was a safe in the room. I believe that valuables can be left at reception, but in room safes just add that extra feeling of security of passports etc..

                We were very surprised by the overall quality of the hotel. the breakfast was great, we loved the waffles!!! Good value for money........Give it a go.

                This hotel had cockarock,s in our bed , and then running on the wall,s gggg us , call the magerment and they gave us another room , and still made us pay cash full pop ?, no refund , but a 25 cent key chain ,,,, w ,,,,t,,,,h,,,,

                6.2

                The location was ideal, both in terms of access to Hollywood Blvd, restaurants, the Metro etc etc. We also found the front-desk staff very helpful when approached for information.

                While the front-desk staff were very helpful when approached, it would have been better to have more information in the room, e.g the ¨photo-copied 1-page fact sheet on Post Office location etc.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Location on Sunset and near all the greatest L.A. attractions on this side of town is fantastic! Nice parking. Rooms are very clean and the pool looked inviting though it was bit cold to try it. If you want to go to L.A. for Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica this is a great value for money. This was my fifth time in L.A. My job is travel agent.

                Breakfast was a bit "limited" to say the least. Small muffins and fresh ("D.I.Y") Belgian waffles (when we were lucky to have some dow left to cook). Many restaurants around where you can have a full breakfast for a reasonable price if you get tired of the muffins and the waffles.

                Close to all sight seeing, bus, shops for food store, laundary,eating places, clubs,cinema everything

                Noise due to location on the main busy road day and night if you are light sleeper

              • Family with children
                8.8

                It was the best motel for the money in a very central location for a quick visit to the sights in Hollywood. We would stay there again. Staff were very helpful.

              • Older travelers

                Location was good (near Hollywood boulevard). Hotel had a nice swimming pool. Price per night was reasonable.

                Breakfast could be better.

              • Family with children
                4.6

                There is a refrigerator in the room and they give you two free bottles of water.

                The worst thing about this hotel is the parking. We ended up having our rental car damaged by another guest because the space is so narrow between the lines. Every evening we arrived back at the hotel to find that there were no parking spaces on the side our room was located. We had to back all the way out back out to the driveway, then try to make a right turn to get back out of the parking lot. We were then told that there was parking on the other side of the building. It was the same situation; there was only one way to pull into the spot and had to back up and down the parking area to get out. One car occupied three spaces. When we told the manager, he went out to take a look, then said that he knew who parked there. It was the owner of the laundromat next door, and he said he does it all the time. He said the man has been ticketed but continues to park there, even though there is parking in front of his business and in the alley. We ended up getting in a big confrontation with the owner of the laundromat the following evening, because he again took up 3 spots.. It was the most frustrating parking experience I ever had. Also, when your room is cleaned, they leave no washcloths. When we asked for 2 extra pillows because theirs were so flat, the manager said they didn't have any. After we complained about the parking, he did find two more pillows. The breakfast time is also very early - 7:00 to 9:00 A.M.. We missed it every morning.

              • Single
                2.8

                The location was average. The staff were poor. The noise from the main road was extreme, and there were so many homeless people who approached you every 100 yards. The hotel had its own homeless person who resided outside the parking lot and would scream all day, beginning from 5am.... The hotel would not do anything about it.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                For only one night accomodation, I really used it for a comfortable sleep, although traffic noise could be heard at night (sunset blvd,), not for more, good and hidden parking place was wellcome

                Only the traffic noise, that's L.A.

              • Couple
                6.6

                The room was ok, clean and with all the basics. The breakfast was fine but a bit crowded - go as early as possible to avoid the rush. The location was just alright. You could walk to sights on Hollywood boulevard, but a bit far from a good bar scene. Staff efficient and helpful.

                I thought it was a bit over-priced for the location and standard. Next time would stay further west in West Hollywood or nearer beaches, for a more neighbourhood feel and walkable bar/restaurant scene.
