This place is BEYOND amazing for so many reasons! This was my first year staying here with my family for a Oscar girls trip (my family has done it for years and stayed here!) There was not a moment we didn’t feel like we were part of the staffs family! They were all very hospitable, friendly and always went above and beyond to meet our needs!! The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the amenities are great!!!! Heated pool, free ice cream, popsicles, soda and snacks! Alcoholic beverages available for beyond affordable prices so we didn’t HAVE to leave if we didn’t want to! I left a day sooner then my family, and had food Doordashed to their hotel room that evening, i called the front desk from my home in Washington and the staff made sure to greet the DoorDash driver and deliver the food personally to the room! On top of the hotel it self, you are within walking distance to Hollywood Blvd and MANY other things!! I am so excited to return next year and already trying to plan a trip to bring my husband and kids!!! Magic Castle Hotel is amazing!!!! Thank you for everything and can not wait to see you again!!

I have been staying at the Magic Castle Hotel for years now. It is within walking distance to all the fun craziness of Hollywood Blvd. Do not expect a modern hotel with fabulous rooms and decor. It is clean, convenient and everyone that works there is friendly and makes you feel like you are the most important guest to have ever arrived. They have free unlimited snacks and a popsicle hotline at the pool. The great customer service makes it my favorite place to stay in Hollywood.

Just returning from another trip to Hollywood. Once again, we stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel. They never disappoint!! Best hotel in Hollywood and we return back here every year. The owner and staff are so kind and take care of your every need. Best customer service I have ever experienced at a hotel. Complimentary breakfast, snacks, popsicles, pop, ice cream, etc. all day long. Already booked our stay for next year. Thanks for always making us feel so welcome.

Another Hollywood trip is over. It always gets sunny the last day. The staff at the Magic Castle Hotel is amazing. It's not fancy, but super clean and the staff is amazing. Nicest people ever. Free soda and water, tons of free snacks, free Popsicles, free ice cream. The group changes every year, but usually my sister and I are a constant. We have stayed here at least 10 yrs and it seems like every year they add a new amenity. This year they added alcoholic beverage service at a phenomenal price. Can't wait till next year. We met Darren the owner, and we had such good service. He does whatever needs to be done. Deliver coffee to your room, pick up dirty towels. If you have children, this is your hotel. 2 blocks from Hollywood Boulevard. The pool is so warm. Popsicle holiness.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this amazing review of your experience. I'm glad you mentioned the alcohol. You were correct to point out that this is new, and I'm glad you found the prices to be phenomenal. We want people to enjoy and relax......not stress about typical "hotel prices" on drinks, so we make it reasonable. Thank you so much for your loyalty all of these years. Can't wait to see you and group again next year. Sincerely, Darren Ross

My family has been coming to this hotel for the last 10 year. The owner reached out to us personally this last year and went above and beyond to help us solve an issue we were having. I saw the owner walking around and asking other residence how they were doing and if he could help them. He offered us a free bottle of wine and also we were having an issue with our shower and without us asking he gave us a second room for free to shower in. I have never seen any customer service like this. We actually cancelled our room next door to come here.
