1 Reviews & Comments About West Hollywood


HomeSnacks User

I went to West Hollywood for just a couple of days. I fell in love immediately. We stayed at a little motel that wasn't the best, but that didn't even matter. We walked around all night and drove around the next day for hours.

My favorite thing to do would just be to sit outside at a restaurant and people watch. I loved the shops. We drove around and looked at the different apartments and houses.
