Nothing special

+ Good Denny's nearby. Good free coffee in the lobby. Some employees are friendly. - Strange smell in the room. Door knocks from cleaning staff at 8 AM ??? Weak wi-fi strength. 20 min from Orange line to North Hollywood by foot. Waited 50 minutes for a taxi - they should change their usual taxi company.

Safe bet

This hotel is a decent value. It is located near Santa Monica, so it's only a 20 drive to the beach. We had some trouble getting a room key that worked. Other than that it was a good hotel.

great stay

It is very hard to find a great value hotel near universal. Studios. After several years of trying we lucked out and found about the best western. We found the bed and pillows to be very comfortable. The room was very clean and staff was efficient. Commute time to universal studios was 20 minutes Max. Air conditioner takes An extraordinary amount of time to cool The room down. Denny's right next door for a good breakfast.

Have stayed several times

It seems like every time I'm there, they are improving the property. That means though, that there can be various inconveniences while they do so. This time the parking lot was being refinished, reducing the already not-quite-enough parking spaces. Other than that, a pleasure as always.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The Denny's in the parking lot doesn't appear to be giving a discount to hotel guests anymore. At least, that's what the manager told me when I tried to show him my room card.

Parking a Problem

Shares property with 24/7 restaurant. Not enough parking spaces. Came back after 10:00 p.m. both nights and had to park on the street (two blocks down and one night on opposite side of street - same location) and walk back to my room. Not the best situation on busy street in not so good area of town. The hotel is super, beautifully decorated with great amenities but if not for a 'deal' it would have been out of my reach dollar wise. These rooms should be priced under $100 not over. Location central but not good neighborhood or sufficient parking. Problematic and inconvenient at best. The regular price is way over-priced for location and what you get.

Great location, easy access to Universal and the Hills

The staff was very friendly. There was a situation with the water heater the first morning, but they staff was really friendly and addressed it in a timely fashion. The room was clean and comfortable. This location was perfect--easy access to the freeways. We went to Universal Studios, hiked in the hills, and hit Venice Beach while we were in town. It didn't take long to drive to any of those locations from this hotel.

My stay

My daughter graduated from UCLA on the morning of the 14th. The hotel room was nice and no issue there. However when we awoke in the am no hot water at all. We had to take a bird bath and I did not wash my hair. Needless to say not to happy. When we left at 7 am I spoke with Robert at front desk he said hw heater broke. He informed me that I would get a full refund in approx 7 days. Robert was very kind and polite.
