Quality Inn Hollywood: It's All About Location!
I chose the Quality Inn because of it's location. I wanted something close to the Catalina Jazz Club and Hollywood Walk of Fame. While there were other accommodations in that same general area I decided on the Quality Inn after reading many reviews.
I arrived in Hollywood a little earlier than expected and the staff was nice enough to let me check in early. The room was large, clean and equipped with a tv, coffee maker, refrigerator and internet capabilities. I did not use any of these other than the fridge for some bottled water. There was also a spacious closet with and iron and ironing board. They provided shampoo, soap and lotion as well. I was thrilled to see they also had a hairdryer in the room. Unfortunately that always is not the case in some hotels. For their guests they also provide a free continental breakfast. However I had already made breakfast plans so I did not use this service.
There was an ample amount of towels and the shower was wonderful. The bed was fantastic. Not to firm or soft but just right. It was actually more comfortable than my bed at home.
The room was located on the first floor facing the courtyard but near the street. It was very quiet and I was not bothered by any noise. The Inn is located on North LaBrea and within a few blocks away from the Walk of Fame and the Catalina club. There is basically anything you could ever want or need in that area. There were at least three mini strip malls within a block or so away from the hotel in addition to many eateries, a 711, a Rite Aid etc... The location is awesome. You are also very close to public transportation whether it be a bus or metro train.
The manager was friendly and very helpful. Checking in and out was a breeze.
I will definitely be staying there again and highly recommend it to other travelers.
You cannot beat this location.

Beverly Hills Penthouse II: OMG in Los Angeles
Amazing. This is in the heart of Los Angeles and was a classy act from start to finish. It is NOT a traditional hotel but they give you a key and you stay in a really nice decorated apartment with everything you might need. I stayed only 2 days but could have stayed much longer. Great pool and great service. I booked this through some company called OMG Travel and would stay there again if I ever go back to Los Angeles. (Note: It is not IN Beverly Hills but just called the Beverly Hills Penthouse because of the luxury) and is near the Museum District in Los Angeles))
Great 360 view of the city from the roof - where the swimming pool is. Full kitchen in the apartment.

Days Inn Buena Park/ Anaheim: Budget option for theme parks
7 nights in May 2008 to shop eat drive explore and do theme parks. Booked months in advance a double room was about $37 + tax. In the self regulated Days Inn assesment it gets 3 sunbursts (stars) from 5 which seems about right.
Location better than the motel itself, but it was clean enough, and again a budget option so stretching top a 4 from5 rating for my tip
The best thing about this motel is that it is walking distance to Knotts Berry Farm and a short drive to Disney, as well as being handy for the I-5.
The worst thing was that there were only seats rather than loungers at the small pool area
The car park was resurfaced during our stay, this is the only picture I could find which is not like me if I did not take more

Hilton Garden Inn: Six Flags Hilton
Technically this hotel is in Valencia, an hour north of downtown Los Angeles but it is in the "Greater LA Area." Traveling north from San Diego, arriving in LA just after rush hour and not wanting to get caught in morning LA traffic this is a good spot to stay for the evening.
It gets you out of LA and gives you a good 1 hour start on your travels the next day.
Close to 6-Flags amusement park this is a great place to stay and take in the park.
Best of all for us, it is pet friendly and the beds are very comfortable.
AAA Members receive a pretty good discount. It more than pays for the CA Room Taxes.

Where area to stay in LA
I always recommend Santa Monica. It's a great area (very touristy). The beach is nice and you have Venice beach on one side and Malibu on the other. So it give you ample things to do. You can go bike riding/roller blading along Venice/Santa Monica, you can go hiking in Malibu area, surfing in Malibu area. It's also not too far form Beverly Hills and Hollywood on a good day 20-30 mins. It's a little far from disneyland, but still you're central, so you can easily do Universal and Disney (40-90mins). Santa Monica also has great shopping along the Promenade and great restaurants. It's the perfect place to live and stay!

Holiday Inn Express Hotel &Suites-Hollywood/Sunset: Best Express Ever!
This hotel is fairly new. It's in a great location close to many things to do!
The rooms and furnishing are almost brand new. The Suites are huge and the beds are super comfy. Of course since it's a Holiday Inn Express a hot breakfast is included.

Most Popular Amongst The Locals: Santa Monica Luxury Hotels
I am a local so I've never stayed at any of the hotels you mentioned. However, I do have some knowledge about some of them. Shutters is right on the beach and a very popular hotel. The Viceroy is the number 1 hotel amongst the locals and visitors alike. It is across the street from the beach -- a friend stayed there while it was being renovated. She had a huge suite for very little money. That was BEFORE it became The Viceroy though. Now the hotel is gorgeous, has two pools, posh and definitely a must-see. Another really nice hotel is The Georgian -- a historic hotel with a great location -- overlooking the ocean and ideal for shopping.
Viceroy - retro design, large suites and great service. Georgian has a beautiful lobby and terrace area - best location overall and Shutters is on the beach with all the modern amenities - a fun place to be.

Motel 6 Hollywood: Cheap Hotel
Motel6 in Hollywood is located in the middle of Hollywood. It's really simple, absolutely no frills, don't expect much for paying so little. If you want to stay somewhere cheap just to have somewhere to sleep and shower, stay here. I enjoyed my experience when I stayed here to go to a concert on Hollywood Blvd. You can walk to the Pantages Theater, hollywood blvd. highland mall, restaurants, clubs.. and many other attractions. The staff is very helpful they can give you directions anywhere. There is limited parking available for $10.00 a day. When their small lot fills up they send you to another city parking lot (monitored) that is down one block on Hollywood blvd located on Cherokee for $8 a day.

LA has hostels, just check em out before you stay.
There are a number of hostels around LA:
I doubt they're on Sunset Blvd, but you could find the bus/subway schedule and travel cheaply.
LA isn't a car-less travelers friend...its large expansive sprawl makes for slow travel...well heck, its slow in a car too!
But there are some hostels here and there, mainly close to the beaches, in Santa Monica, Venice Beach, etc.

Renaissance Hollywood Hotel: Renaissance Hollywood Hotel
We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It has a unique location next to Hollywood Walk of Fame and Chinese Theatre. The service is very good and erveryone is very friendly.
We had a beautiful room with view at the famous Hollywood sign.
My son just loved it !
There was 1 negative thing: the valet parking was very expensive (30 dollar per overnight).

Various Names: Hotel Suggestions
Since I live in the LA area, there has never been a need to stay in a hotel here. But for those of you visiting, here are some suggestions:
Shutters Hotel on the Beach
Kyoto Grand Hotel
Beverly Hills Hotel
Very, very nice - If I want to afford it, I will stay at these places
My preference for reasonable accomodations
Reasonably Priced and a little better accomodations than the cheap hotels
Comfort Inn and Suites
La Quinta Inn
Cheap Hotels that can be found in various places throughout LA - Be careful, many "undesirable types" stay in places like this
Econo Lodge - I think these are okay
Motel 6 - I wouldn't stay here
Travelodge - Don't know
Vagabond Inn - Also, don't know

Hotel California: a room at the Hotel california
I have been told by a couple of locals that this is the place inspiring the legendary song "Hotel California" by "Eagles". Is that true? I don't know but might be a good accomodation for the Santa Monica area. However the hotel on the album cover is the Beverly Hills Hotel, known as the Pink Palace.

Hollywood Vagabond Inn Executive: Cheap Motel
It is a basic Motel and is everything you need of it. The area which it is situated is within walking distance of the chinese theatre and and the walk of fame. There is parking on site and it all seems pretty safe. There is also a small pool but I didn't use it so couldn't comment on what it was like. With your room you get a continental breakfast in the morning which is standard with most of these motels but it wasn't the best but when it's free you can't really complain.

Holiday Inn Hollywood Walk of Fame Hotel: Hollywood Hotel
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Hollywood Hotel for 5 nights, and unfortunately it was quite easily our least favourite hotel accommodation on our trip in California. Our room smelt of cigarette smoke and that was our second choice, the first one was a lot worse. The size of the room was very compact. The actual area where the hotel is situated was not that nice, we didn’t feel safe walking around there at night. I have to say though, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with any queries or requests that we had. I know one thing for sure, the next time we stay in LA it will not be in Hollywood.
In walking distance of Hollywood Boulevard and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
