Good for a one night stay

Pros: Close to universal studio
Cons: Room

The hotel was close to the attractions which was pretty much the biggest plus. The rooms are just ok.

A good deal

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff
Cons: Firmer beds -- I'm guessing ours were a bit old
Close to the Getty Center, and Burbank, and convenient for activities on the north side of LA. And older facility, to be sure, but the staff seems to work hard at keeping things running smoothly. Beds were too soft.

Nice Hotel in Sherman Oaks

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: The room was comfortable. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice.
Cons: The parking spots are very small.
Location: About a mile away from a mall.
This was a nice hotel. We were upgraded to a better room because we are part of Expedia's VIP program. We also received bottled water and free breakfast at the Denny's next door.

Hotel close to the highway.

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Our stay was ok. I was disappointed that the inn did not provide complimentary breakfast. Also the hotel does not have another restroom. The only other restroom if your at the pool or at the lobby is at the Denny's next door. It was very inconvenient.

Good location

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness and location.
Location: Good location for Universal Studios and Hollywood, handy having Denny's Restaurant next door.
We were visiting Los Angeles and wanted a central location for sight seeing, very close to Universal Studios and Hollywood. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and premises generally were very clean and well maintained.

Encino Bound

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: I like the easy on/easy off the highway and that it was near Ventura Blvd. where all the great restaurants were located.
Cons: Nothing really, just would have like to go right to our room as we had driven three hours...
Location: Right off the San Diego Fwy - easy to find and near a lot of great shopping and restaurants!
Had to wait about 30 minutes for our room, but we arrived a little early. The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant. Our room was very nice, beds really comfy.

Decent stay. Standard 3 star place.

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Everything went smoothly from check in to check out. There was no nasty hidden charges or "additional costs" accrued during our stay.
Cons: The room attendants were asked to change our linen on numerous occasions and didn't. Closer attention could be provided to the servicing of the rooms.
Location: The only thing that I didn't like about this place was the location. It just didn't sit right with me. Not much around and Van Nuys isn't a good area.
Stayed here for 2 weeks. The hotel itself was decent, just a standard 3 star place. It was clean, the beds were comfy and everything was in working order. The front desk guys Apu and Wahid were really helpful and made the stay very accommodating. Even at times when it was very busy they were more then happy to help. Overall, this is a solid place to stay. I've read previously parking has been an issue for some people at this hotel. In 2 weeks I never had one problem getting a spot and I tried at all times of the day. Sometimes very late. Try and avoid the on-site Dennys restaurant. You'll get food that you regret eating and even worse service.
