If The Eagles are to be believed (and let's face it, they're as trustworthy as any other 70s rock band) there's a hotel somewhere probably on America's west coast, where you can check out any time, but you can never leave.
Doesn't sound like an ideal scenario. However when researching this gallery of Hollywood Hotels we couldn't help but think about The Eagles' eerie lyric. Why? Well movie motels, B&Bs and hotels tend to fall into one of two categories.
1. The ones we never want to leave
2. The ones we would check out of instantly, but could probably never really forget
Whichever of the two categories these 20 silverscreen hotels fall into, one thing's for sure - they're great creations - either for positive or deeply, deeply terrifyingly, hopelessly negative reasons. Norman Bates, looking at you here.
