I WAS THERE WITH MY KIDS AND THEIR FAMILY AND WE GOT THERE AROUND 3;30 PM AND 2 OF THE ROOMS WERE NOT READY UNTILL 5:45. OUT OF THE 4 ROOMS WE HAD RESERVED FOR THE EVENING AND CONFIRMED THE DAY PRIOR THAT WE WOULD BE ARRIVING AROUND 3-3:30ISH AND VERIFIED THE ROOMS WOULD BE READY AS WE HAD A WEDDING TO ATTEND AROUND 6PM. NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE WERE ALL EXTREMELY STRESSED OUT WITH THE ACCOMMODATIONS PIECE AND BEING ABLE TO GET READY AND BE ON TIME TO THE WEDDING. SADLY, THE FRONT DESK STAFF SEEMED TO NOT CARE AND DIDN'T APOLOGIZE FOR THE DELAYED ROOMS.
No carpeting, which was okay. The floors were a vinyl with a wood pattern. They were sticky and filthy. We asked that housekeeping clean them while we were out for the day, but when we came back late in the evening they were still dirty. Also, we were told when we checked in that if we wanted fresh towels or housekeeping service that there would be an extra charge. Although it was an extended stay hotel with a small kitchen there were no dishes, utensils, or cookware. You had to get that at the front desk. There wasn't even a coffee maker or hair dryer in the room. It also appeared as if this hotel was part of a program to house homeless. Wish we'd known before we paid full price to stay here. Terrible place.
Hospitality was great. Front desk team very good and so helpful. The noise level with the young college students residing. Felt like we were in a college dorm one night
Everything in general From staff To service
Nothing I was suppose to be in a non-smoking room. I walked into the room and the smoke smell was overwhelming! I went back to the front and informed the staff that the room had been smoked in. They the informed me that they were sorry but they could not put me in another room! They told me that they would spray the room. This did not work! I will never stay at another Extended Stay!
Staff was great, location to other attractions The parking garage was pricey considering I paid 200.00 a night should get a discount when staying. The elevators were all not in service. Breakfast was too expensive for a weeks stay. I couldn't find a salon inside for service.
The room was spacious...good pillows. Good gym, nice pool. Two elevators were out (and have been for 3 years!), making trips up and down sometimes very lengthy. You can call the operator each time you go to the elevator asking to be picked up, but how ridiculous for a hotel of this caliber. Restaurant food was boring. All three places to eat at the hotel had the same menu, with tiny differences. The first meal or two it is fine, you can find alternate foods to eat, but after a few days, a change is necessary. It cost $18 for a so-called, all you can eat 'continental breakfast'...yogurt, fruit, cereal, muffins and coffee! This Hilton is near the Universal City Walk, all franchise restaurants so no good food nearby for real foodies...if you like buffets with all you can eat, this is your place.
The pool, corner room & breakfast. The parking situation upon arrival.
Best place to stay when going to Universal Studios, and I go a lot. There's a free shuttle that takes you to the entrance of City Walk or you can walk there in less than 10 minutes via the pedestrian bridge.
Walking distance to universal and reasonable droving distance to many LA locations. Cost of parking.
Close to Universal Studios The outside hallway carpet was greasy and muddy. Even after having them clean it, we continued to bring grease and grime and dirt into our hotel room. Our entry walkway was pretty disgusting because of it.
Staff and less than 10 minutes walking distance to Universal studio Wait for elevator and parking was pricey
Everything was perfect
The staff, the comfy beds, location Funny smells, noisy electronics/shower, parking price. The place is good but could use an update
Was charged a deposit at the hotel, had to pay to park. Also room was soooo cold had to sit in coat and hat, called front desk we were offered a space heater but it was never brought to the room. Called the front desk and was told the heat had been cut back on so heater in room should work now.. It didn't
When we checked in we were told they sold out on higher floor rooms, and only room is on the 4th floor. That room, 420 was dated! Room number on the door was handwritten. Everything was old. I was so angry that I paid over $300 including tax for this pos!
Team members were friendly, shuttle to Universal Studio mall plus in walking distance if you choose and food was good. We were there for our grandsons birthday First I could have had better room rate then what we got Sheraton is a Starwood management and we are owners of a Hotel in San Diego that is also managed by Starwood.. So I had told the manager checking us in that and he still didn't do anything about a lesser rate. Second under remodeling no ATM machine black out curtain didn't close properly use hair clippies to keep outside lighting out at night..
I did like that my room was ready on time and that it had a view. When I arrived there was a leak in the restroom that they did not fix... I has the same issue with the water leaking from the toilet when I woke up the next morning. Also the morning I checked out the TV did not work and I had to call room service to fix it and reprogram it. The price was not up to par with the type of room I was given.
Fantastic staff, great location within walking distance to Universal Studios & not far to drive to Warner Brothers Studios. Rooms are a bit dated & need a makeover, however they are currently renovating the public areas so I am sure they could possibly then start on updating their rooms. The public areas look great.
So close to Universal Studios and had a shuttle right outside the hotel the door handle to the room needed to be looked at
Location, location and location - that's the only thing positive about this hotel. Otherwise, it is no better than a poor hotel with bad everything - Rooms are aged (badly need remodeling) - Rooms are not kept up and clean (there was mildew buildup around the sink and it was blocked for us) - Service is poor (45 min to get shower cap)
The Hotel Staff was amazing! They went above & beyond to make sure that our stay was everything we hoped it would be. Nothing!
Staff was okay. Food was good. It's being remodeled. Was very noisy in our room 1802 during the day we were trying to take a break between conference sessions. The elevators were incredibly slow! up to a 20 minute wait one evening!(6/13) The door was a hassle, took multiple tries to get it open, latch isn't lined up with striker plate, told front desk, they didn't understand and gave us another key card We'll stay at the Hilton I think, but a bit more money......or wait for remodel to be finished.
They charge extra just to use wifi, which is typically a standard accommodation everywhere. The place is run down.
I loved the location; close to Universal but also a short drive from Hollywood and Warner Brothers. Walking distance to small restaurants and gas stations. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in! And the view from the 20th floor was incredible. The room needs some updating. Dings and marks were visible on the walls and the bathroom showed definite signs of wear.
Arrived with family and Young Children. At midnight had a fire alarm that told us to exit the building via Staircase. We did. carrying 2 children and 20 flights of stairs later. We were told, It was the steam from the kitchen that caused it, go back to the room. 1 am, this gets repeated again. We get told someone was smoking, go back to the room. This happens again. We just go to the staircase with no energy to walk down 20 flights of stairs. We call 45 min. later to find out (false alarm). So next morning - the staff gets approached and we get told oh there was a party on the 21st floor that was using a fog machine. I asked why not have a PA system in the stairs so you can notify the people to not panic or there's a fire on the 2nd floor or anything. They said oh I know.. WTF.. I know. I just left with family never to return to that one again.
We liked pretty much everything. There's a pool, fitness center, & gift shop. There's also a fully functioning restaurant (The Daily Grill) that is open early & closes late. Great place to have people in the area meet us for food or drinks. Very comfortable rooms with everything you need included. It was nice to have a parking lot in the hotel, but if you opted not to go with Valet, it was a little bit of a walk to get to the lobby with suitcases & such. Adding to that, the parking lot is shared with airport travelers, so there were times at night where we were concerned we wouldn't find any spaces, even though we were hotel guests. But, it still worked out, there were a couple of hidden spots. My biggest complaint is that the air-conditioning unit in our room was very loud & would wake us up throughout the night whenever it clicked on. On a minor note, the business area in the room with the extra outlets had blown a fuse & no power was coming out of it. We let the front desk know. Over-all, these are small complaints (other than the AC).
The Hotel was clean and staff was super friendly but the parking wasn't free, $21 dollare a day. Yikes! No free parking.
We stayed there before going to vegas for our honeymoon... Awesome place, staff is extremely friendly, totally recommended
Everything was great. Was only there for a night, but staff was very attentive. You had to pay extra for parking.
Great staff Double queen beds seemed a little small and mattresses were not very comfortable.
I loved the bed but that's about it. When I first checked in I was carrying my baby and luggage and had my son follow. Got all the way to my room and my key didn't work so i had to drag it all back down and carry it all back up a second time. The shower clogged up. The tv was in & out and some channels didn't have any volume?! No fridge, no microwave, no table for us to eat on.... (There was a desk my son ate on but me & my husband had to eat standing up or on the bed) Parking is $21 a night for guest. You have to pay for wifi & breakfast.
Very clean and comfortable. Beds were TOO small for a group of 6 girls.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. No breakfast for guests unless you pay at the restaurant or order room service.
Room was very clean and staff was very polite.
Steak salad from room service was exceptional! Employees were friendly and helpful. Toilet stopped up. Hallways smelled musty. Bedspread smelled like someone's perfume - obviously was not washed before I arrived. Woodwork was full of nicks and scratches. Very dissapointing for a Marriott.
Great value for the price. Only thing that I can point out was check in. We had to wait for a room to get cleaned even though we were checking in 2 hrs past regular check in. Also no hot tub. :( staff was top notch. I have never had towels delivered so fast. I swear they were to us before I hung up, haha
The pool area at night was beautiful The only thing I would mention is that the additional parking fee was not clear when I booked, I ve found out of this at the hotel
The peace and quite and very relaxing and clean Leaving
this hotel had the most comfortable bed i have slept in away from home. the stylish simple decor is relaxing and the small details are appreciated. the central location is one of the primary reasons i selected this hotel. very pleased with my experience at this hotel.
Very nice room with good comfort Expensive breakfast! Including tax and normal tip we paid almost 70 dollars for a three persons continental breakfast (toast, muffin and fruit).
This is a very efficient, comfortable and stylish hotel. The staff is friendly and professional. Clearly, they hire customer oriented staff and pay great attention to detail. I'll definately return.
The guy at the front counter was very helpful room was clean but on the street didn't like that didn't seem like a four-star but did have a minibar valet guy stunk up my car not going back to this hotel because a dirty animal
Everything was great! Would recommend to others
Just how nice the staff was and the welcome feeling each time you entered the doors An $93 dollars charge a day later after paying the bill that was not given a reason for what it was for.
Pillows, beds, comfort of whole room. Excellent staff. Shuttle was lincoln town car. Across from 24hr grocery store. No view just another room 4 feet away. No pool. Spa water was warm but not hot. Did I mention, no pool!
The rooms were clean and comfortable The staff were attentive and courtious The smoke alarm tests Lack of king bed availaîlity
Very clean Quite far from main la attraction. Neighborhood is a no man's land at night.
Clean Friendly staff Short drive to universal Spend more but avoid this location Neighborhood is shady Scary to walk on streets at night Liquor stores everywhere Not for families No good restaurants or shops around
The area in Burbank is never the best. It was nice to find this hotel which was very nice and made staying near Burbank Airport not only tolerable but very nice
The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness and the updated everything. We always stay here when we come to California. WiFi included and free parking. The staff is awesome and they treat you with respect and not just like another unknown person.
Proximity to Hollywood Breakfast was marginal. Location was a bit dodgy
Breakfast was okay, nothing special, but it was nice they had free breakfast at all. Location wasn't the greatest but I didn't feel unsafe. No pool.
The room was nice, the bed was comfy and the staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. The breakfast food, while complimentary, was also not very palatable.
Very nice hotel for the price. We were only 15min from Universal. Free parking Parking area was small luckily we didn't have a problem but if they were all booked I could see it being an issue
Staff was cool, place was fairly clean, great breakfast The area was horrible ,no pool. Funky smell.would rather pay an extra 50 bucks a night and stay at an embassy suite
The good things...Entire hotel was clean and new looking. Check-in was quick. Beds are really comfortable & clean. Nice touch have the remote control in sleeve showing it was sanatized :) Business center was very useful for us! The downfall was someone got arrested in the room right next to us the next morning police everywhere, So that was a site for sore eyes. And a bit scary for us considering I was traveling with my daughter and mother :(
Loved the modern look with the retro flair, great location, $5 uber ride to citywalk. Our room lock did not work properly, you had to push and force it open.
It was unique with every room having different murals and great location, very friendly hotel staff, and they even have a coffee/espresso machine at all hours of the night as well as pastries provided in the morning! Would definitely recommend for a trip to LA and will be staying here again! Limited parking in front so have to park in the back lot
David was very helpful, we had a bit of trouble finding our way however he talked us through it all and we arrived eventually. We end up extending our booking by 2 nights as the stay was comfortable. I confirmed on check in that my credit card was being used as a pre auth only, however when checking out i was informed my card had been charged without letting me know and i could not charge my stay to the correct card and nothing could be done about it.
excellent spacious room, iphone/ipod connection with tv, very good bed, shower, air conditioning, everything works great. very well decorated room, light inside. close to warner bros, just 10 minutes by car to universal studios and 30 minutes or less to six flags magic mountain.
The rooms were amazing, and the view was very beautiful! The workers were very polite and very outgoing
The modern amenities, quality, location was perfect, The fees were high for an average size of room. I've paid that much in the past (Oxnard ~ Garden Inn) but they have small kitchenettes, free bfast & dinner.
My only suggestion is that the room service could be a bit nicer for the price... plasticware?
Ita the nicest holiday inn i hqve ever seen and the girl at the front desk told me it was the biggest too. Also PARKING IS FREE. . . A rarity in LA It was all good
Had frig and mirowave in the room . Our room had a connecting door in it. The one night someone in the other room went to sleep with his tv volume up. beginning of the night we were able to sleep but as it got to early morning it became a problem. However when we tried to fix problem they quickly helped solve the issue.
I enjoyed the entertainment Friday and Saturday night. Kareoke and the house band were awesome The pool area could use some upgrades and a jacuzzi
Staff was amazing (though having a newborn with us helped). Young pregnant woman at front desk (didn't catch her name) was exceptionally accomodating. First night was broken by several members of a wedding party banging on our door and being loud in general.
The rooms were very nice and comfy. Nice size bathroom. The non-smoking rooms wreaked of disgusting stale cigarettes. As a non-smoker, it made me gag!!
New, modern hotel with nice rooms. Okay breakfast - better than Holiday Inn as one would expect. Incredibly bad sound insulation through the floors. We complained several times about neighbors who had very loud children left unattended into the late hours and the staff did nothing about it. They also did not provide any concessions or apologies. They could also not figure out providing free parking as part of our rate right up until we checked out and had to get it adjusted. We got locked out of our room and it took a very long time for them to send an engineer to bring the emergency keys. Overall, I would not come back here unless there was a really good deal going.
The hotel was well staffed and the staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant used for the complimentary breakfast was comfortable, and the food was excellent. Room was clean. Bath area had floor patched and re-patched, with grout very dingy looking. Floor was uneven and extreme care was required when using the shower.
We saved a lot of money staying at the Mikado for 9 days. Enjoyed the quick and easy access to all the north Los Angeles suburbs we wanted to see. Do not book a stay here if you are looking for luxury. That is not what this hotel is about, although it is comfortable, has in-room refrigerators and microwaves, wi-fi, pool and hot tub. Some reviewers have too high expectations for this price range. We were just looking for a good deal, and that's what we got!
Great staff. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room. Staff was apologetic though and assisted us as much as he can.
Not knowing what to expect, when I walked in to book the room, my first impression was "wow this place is pretty nice" for the money, I would be hard pressed to find a better place, friendly service, clean, very quiet
Location was central The facilities felt like a Motel 6 trying to be a Marriott and it just doesn't feel comfortable or relaxing at all. The freeway is right next to the rooms. I felt like I was at a cheap Motel.
nice pool and hot tub, nice rooms clean and spacious
Very friendly staff and affordable for the location Very friendly staff and affordable for the location.
The staff was wonderful and accommodating! Rooms were always clean, staff was very friendly. The breakfast was excellent. We were in for over a week for a horse show and this was a great area and easily accessible for us...being from Pennsylvania! Will absolutely stay here again next year! Room was tight for 4 people, but no big deal! Hot tub was a bit too hot...otherwise, no complaints!
Nice balcony room with a view over the garden. Wi fi was really slow, no room service
We loved the pool and hot tub, and the clean and updated facilities. The staff was very helpful, prompt and kind as well. The food was too expensive for the quality of what you got to stay at the hotel to eat.
This hotel was very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The room I was in was cute. The furniture was nice and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. I made my reservation an hour before I was to arrive because my other accommodations didn't work out. I enjoyed my stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. No complaints!
My boyfriend and I stayed here because we were going to Universal Studios. The location was perfect only about a 15/20 minute drive. The staff was so nice. I thought the valet parking only would be inconvenient but it actually wasn't. Comfy beds, clean rooms and bathrooms. We would definitely stay here again!
facilities user friendly, complete, quiet, relax, secure and confort.. none
Staff was very nice and room was clean. I have no complaints. Valet parking was free but only because we had to sign up for a rewards program. If we didn't sign up it would have been 7.50 a night.
What I loved the most was that I was close to everything in LA! Breakfast was delicious! Will be coming back for sure!
The room was big and accommodated everyone in my family. The room was clean and tidy. We weren't aware of the valet parking and would have rather Park ourselves.
Everything, everyone was very helpful and pleasant. We will stay here again! Thank you
Beds were comfortable with nice pillows. Nice bathrooms. Quiet rooms. Clean. N/A
Plenty of parking., quite and clean. Pool was too small. Free breakfast had powered eggs and no bacon or sausage.
Service and staff were great!
I liked the location of this Best Western because it was close to the California freeway system. The streets surrounding the hotel were wide and traffic was at a minimum so the area was quiet. The hotel is close to wonderful restaurants too. Also, the breakfast each morning was upgraded from the past years that we had stayed at the hotel. There was a much better selection of foods from which to choose. Nothing at this time because our stay was very satisfactory.
Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly. Breakfast only had high-carb bread items.
The beds are comfortable. The front desk clerk was horribly RUDE. Apparently they require a $100 deposit if you use a debit card but this is not stated anywhere. We were using a debit/credit card and even though I asked him to run it as credit he refused and kept asking for the deposit. The front desk clerk was not going to let us check in due to this policy even though we explained we had the money but it would have left us flat broke. He finally waived it after my wife came up and explained we did not have to pay this when we stayed 1 month prior. He copied both of our drivers license and took our payment for the room. My wife was not feeling well so I asked for a room downstairs but he told us they were all booked even though we were there very early and saw housekeeping leave several rooms that were clearly not occupied. The shower is disgusting. Not all the rooms are the same. Majority of the rooms downstairs have been remodeled and look like the pictures on this website but our room did not look anything like the pictures on the site. Very misleading.
Being woken Up to the manager and a guest screaming at each other at he top of there lungs
Room looked like it should cost twice as much. Price was good. Close to I-10. Outside looked run down. Odd requirement to put cash deposit with check card (not needed for credit card).
helpful staff, good service The pool they were supposed to have was located at another motel. A little deceptive to say they have a pool.
Staff was very friendly and helpful! There was not much nearby that was walking distance, but easy enough to get an über to take you to nearby sights/activities.
Room was ready upon arrival, very clean, nicely appointed rooms, easy access location. Rooms open to central courtyard which was noisy from the var at night. Room service never brought my order, no call or any apology and the desk staff didn't seem to care the next morning when I told them.
Everything. Food very Good. Could not fault anything.
Staff was great. Hotel was clean and comfortable. A little off the beaten path but seemingly a nice neighborhood. I asked for a pre noon check in online the day before and I was not allowed to check in until 3 pm.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I liked the spaciousness of the room and I really liked the large breakfast selection. I would have preferred two bathroom sinks.
The rooms were nicely arranged. Loved the layout. It was the perfect studio apartment. Very clean except but I found a hair on one of the pillows :(. But room was otherwise pristine. Also, after a certain time there is no room or hospitality service you have to walk down to the front desk. Keep windows closed at night there is a train.
Real nice place friendly staff and area around was very nice lots to do.
cleanliness and promptness of service well, we just stayed overnight so I can't really tell more about this hotel but so far we had a good experience.
Have nothing but good things to say about the accomadations. Clean, nice, quiet. This is located very close to the shopping areas and was really convienent to the downtown area. If I had a problem it was with the bill. They added $15.00 a day for parking, plus some tax for parking. It came as an unpleasent surprise, considering everything else.
Staff was very helpful, courteous, and , and kind Lack if security cameras in the oarking garage
This place is awesome. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful.
The location was good for travel to Warner Bros and Universal Studios We changed room 3 times--the first 2 rooms had old furniture--sofa beds looked awful. The room had an awful odor. We did not want to continue to changing rooms; we sprayed a lot of perfume etc. I will never stay in another hotel which allows pets.
everything was good!!! with the exception of the parking convienent ,safe, however an unexpected fee for the parking. .. Hotel guest are required to pay for parking at a fee of $15.00 a day... this was not even valet parking.. there was no alternative No. parking in the street allowed.. In essence you are really paying for the ' complimentry Breakfast ' I have paid this and more for valet parking.. Just a little surprise for this .. i have stayed at other Residence Inn and did not have this fee.. Location, Location, Location, I quess..
It was like a small apartment. I liked having more than just a bed and a bathroom, very spacious, continental breakfast . Clean, friendly staff, nice location.I have nothing bad to say about it. I would definitely stay there again
