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.

WOW!!! Never have I ever received such amazing service at any other hotel or resort as I have at the Magic Castle in our short 2 night stay. We are a family of 5 and stayed here along with our friends who are a family of 4, for 2 nights at the end of our USA trip. We were greeted...

We stayed here for 5 nights, I would have to say never experienced such helpful and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble and the advice on travelling g around and attractions was such a huge help. The rooms were spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel offers a drink machine, soft serve ice cream machine, icy poles...

It looks like a motel that's been converted. It's clean, fresh (the yellow paint is eye popping) and the staff are great. Our room was quite large. And the air con works well. Rooms look over the pool. And yep there r lots of freebies. Who doesn't like the thought of snacks galore. And free ice-blocks ? It's walking distance...

The staff go above and beyond. Felt ridiculously spoiled and they treated all of their guests this way. Won't stay at another place in LA. Don't miss out on the breakfast pastries--they are to die for.

Breakfast, snacks, soft serve, free laundry service, huge room, staff who go out of their way to help, the list goes on and on. Everything wonderful that is said on this site about this hotel is true and more. We stayed for a week in January, in a one bedroom apartment upstairs facing the street. Whilst the apartment was dated...

This place is amazing. The hotel itself may not be five star but they make up for that and more with the most amazing service. Nothing is too much trouble, and they provide so much for free, candy, snacks, ice cream, sodas, laundry service, they'll even order your food delivery for you and give you honest recommendations on where to...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Magic Castle, especially the kids. We had a two bed apartment overlooking the pool which was great. The hotel is located in a good location and we found it perfect for everything we wanted to do and see whilst in Hollywood. This hotel really knows how to look after its guests, nothing seems...

My family and I fell in love with this hotel and will be back. We stayed there because it was next door to the Magic Castle (another story in itself) And because it was a short drive from Universal So much personality. You felt like were back in the 60s. Immaculate and the staff all were friendly and helpful. No...

Long post--but I feel like our stay was really so great I want to share it all. First-I called a few weeks in advanced and Alex was very kind and helpful in arranging brunch reservations at the Magic Castle next door (which is also amazing). While making this reservation, she had asked for my kids' ages and I happened to...
