What a fabulous place for families to stay in Los Angeles, just a five-minute walk from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the TCL Chinese Theatres! My kids loved the free snacks, free soda and free ice-cream – not to mention the free ice-blocks delivered to the pool – and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They even...

The staff at the Magic Castle go the extra mile for you and this is what makes this hotel special. The rooms were well appointed but could do with an upgrade. The pool area is spotlessly clean and the extra perks of staying at this hotel such as complimentary drinks, snacks and ice cream as well as access to dinner...

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of March 2017. Our room was a one bedroom apartment, lots of space with a kitchen, stove, oven, fridge and microwave. It was old but well maintained. The bed in the main bedroom was comfortable. Our daughters 18 and 4 slept on the pull out sofa bed. The staff were really helpful...

The room was great. The location is great. The staff is more than great. Snacks available at any time, and that is truly anytime, day or night. And we enjoyed the magic at The Castle. Thank you so much.

Stayed here for 2 nights for kids' spring break. Picked this hotel after checking out reviews and it did not disappoint at all. All the reviews about staff being nice and accommodating for any kind of request are true! The staff is always smiling and going out of the way to make the stay pleasant. The suites are big and...

This is a renovated old motel with clean, well updated rooms, and a fun pool and courtyard at the center. The breakfast was standard fare - cereal, toast, yogurt, fruits - and there are free snacks, free soda, and a free ice cream machine available later in the day. We loved walking over to Grauman's Chinese theatre, and Madame Tussaud's...

When we travel to Los Angeles, this is where we stay. The staff is friendly the atmosphere is casual. The layout is like an old style Hollywood apartment complex that centers around the pool. A unique feature is they treat you like a guest! They have snacks, beverages and ice cream - not as a mini bar, but available for...

We stayed here with 4 adults and 2 children in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a great hotel for us as we had space for all of us. A short easy walk to Hollywood tourist area. The breakfast was simple but ample. Cereal, toast, muffins, yoghurt, coffee, juice. My daughter was so excited to see Vegemite that she ate...

My kids and I just checked out and we were so sad to leave. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered. The location, amenities, and service is exactly what w hoped for. The Gargano's will definitely be back. Couldn't have asked for more. They felt like family.
