Alta Cienega Motel — Cheap, Clean, and Historic

What Do the Rooms Include?

The Alta Cienega Motel is a no-frills place from which guests can enjoy the splendors of Hollywood, California. The rooms feature air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. This was the haunt of Jim Morrison of the Doors, and you can stay in his eclectic room, #32, where fans have scribed their names on the wall over the years. Rooms come with private bath and a stall shower. 

What Amenities are Available?

This is a minimalist hotel with few amenities. In fact, expect only free Wi-Fi and limited free parking, but the Alta Cienega Motel is not about fancy rooms with long lists of amenities. It is, however, about visiting a place where a musical legend stayed. This is Hollywood after all, and rock royalty all have their dens. Keep in mind that this is a motel and not a hotel, and as such, the expectations are lower. This is a place with just the basics, but the staff is friendly. 

What are the Rates Like?

The Alta Cienega Motel offers basic, standard motel rooms. Expect to pay $84 per night on the weekend and around $79 for weekday rates. Prices do not include local taxes that add $10 to $12 to the cost of your visit. Surprisingly, you can actually stay in Jim Morrison's old room. You can also take a tour of the room for $20. 

What’s the Bottom Line?

The Alta Cienega Motel was once the residence of Jim Morrison. His room is still there and kept in perfect condition. Tours of the room are available. Overall, the motel offers its guests an eclectic stay with a short list of amenities, but at a fair price for your stay. Room entrance is via outside corridors. Rooms facing the street are noisy, and the area can be a challenge at night.
