I didn't actually spend a night in the motel just visited and took a few pictures... the owner/manager was not particularly friendly, he's probably fed up with all the Doors fans who don't want to spend any money just pay a visit...

We were here only for one night. Good location, staff are kind. Room was small but clean. Bas was confortable. We had four towels in the room and one soup. It was noisy but you can sleep when windows are closed.

Booked as a cheap and cheerful quick stop option. While the place was fairly clean it didn't feel it. Noisy guests upstairs. We checked out very early. The Wifi worked well and parking charge was waived.

Stayed there after concert in town. For a room 138 and 20 to park in the tiny parking lot. Could of stayed at a better motel cheaper (with free parking) but we couldn't drive further. Other than that, room was below average and outdated by 30 plus years.

Poor service, all they want is money. From the website, it states that they provide free parking, in the end we gonna for 8USD per day for the confined car parking. Secondly, the air-con broke down when we stayed up for the 2nd night, what a terrible night we had.

Ive stayed here a few times when I was having financial problems. The place is very basic but has free wifi. A very nice Indian couple own the place and are always friendly. The only problem is that it is cheaper so you see a lot of hookers and drug addicts that frequent the motel.

If you love The Doors and are desperate to "live for a night" in Jim's old hotel room, then you have to tick this box. True it isn't very clean, but it's OK. Jim's room is on the very noisy side of the street, but - like i said - if it has to be done, you'll live with it....

Grim with a side helping of grimness. People question if the Jim Morrison room is authentic or if its been decorated and upgraded since he stayed there. Well if that room has the one I stayed in hasn't been touched since the 60`s. But hey I knew after the reviews what to expect, it was a bed and it was...

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
