Walking distance to universal and reasonable droving distance to many LA locations. Cost of parking.
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 staff, the comfy beds, location Funny smells, noisy electronics/shower, parking price. The place is good but could use an update
Everything was perfect
The pool, corner room & breakfast. The parking situation upon arrival.
Staff and less than 10 minutes walking distance to Universal studio Wait for elevator and parking was pricey
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.
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.
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.
I did like that the front desk accommodated us despite the miscommunication about check in. They gave us free overnight parking as well. I did not like that guest parking was so expensive. Even just for a few hours would be pricey just for a quick visit.
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
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).
Great staff Double queen beds seemed a little small and mattresses were not very comfortable.
We stayed there before going to vegas for our honeymoon... Awesome place, staff is extremely friendly, totally recommended
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
Staff was very friendly and helpful. No breakfast for guests unless you pay at the restaurant or order room service.
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.
The Hotel was clean and staff was super friendly but the parking wasn't free, $21 dollare a day. Yikes! No free parking.
Room was very clean and staff was very polite.
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.
They charge extra just to use wifi, which is typically a standard accommodation everywhere. The place is run down.
The public area is very nice Check in was very delayed. No iron in room. No wifi and public computers didn't work properly
5 minutes walking to Universal Studios! Staff was super friendly and the room service was fanastic. Nothing!!!!
The proximity to Universal studios was great. The porter/valet, front desk and concierge were all very friendly.
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.
Close to visit Universal Studios and not far from airport.
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.
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)
I like the assistance the hotel provided in helping us plan our trip and visit sights around the area. Our room had a used cot in it when we arrived, but they handled it quickly and moved us to a new room.
Vary close to park and city walk. Vary clean and friendly service.
Location as it is closed to the Universal studio No water being provided
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.
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!
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.
Everything was great! Would recommend to others
The rooms were clean and comfortable The staff were attentive and courtious The smoke alarm tests Lack of king bed availaîlity
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 clean Quite far from main la attraction. Neighborhood is a no man's land at night.
The peace and quite and very relaxing and clean Leaving
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
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).
The front desk lady was amazing and kind.
Good room, good price Breakfast
Very clean and I enjoyed the breakfast Nope
The room was clean, cozy and the bed was comfortable. Every thing was available in the room including: microwave, fridge and safe box. However, the location and the area was underexpectations and far from the beaches. The breakfast had very few options and can not consider it as a continental one.
Free parking, clean room, comfortable beds,location close to highway Breakfast was terrible
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!!
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.
The rooms were amazing, and the view was very beautiful! The workers were very polite and very outgoing
My only suggestion is that the room service could be a bit nicer for the price... plasticware?
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.
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.
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
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!
facilities user friendly, complete, quiet, relax, secure and confort.. none
Everything, everyone was very helpful and pleasant. We will stay here again! Thank you
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!
Everyone I encountered at this place was happy and eager to help. The place was clean and easy to locate. Took less than 10 minutes to Universal. If I am in the area again I would stay there again. The pool is heated. The warm breakfast was nice for kids I know before we got there but being charged for parking seamed a little excessive do to the location.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I like the layout of the hotel, design and location.
The hotel itself was clean and comfortable. I would have thought twice had I known about the surrounding neighborhood. It was in the middle of a commercial area with no restaurants or stores close by.
The customer service was hands down, top notch. We were greeted by the maintenance man who greeted with a friendly wave and hello. He also helped me check in by reading to me the license plate number from the rental car we had because I couldn't see it. Nothing! I'm a stickler on customer service and cleanliness and this hotel surpassed all expectations!!!
By far the nicest, cleanest, Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Manager, was wonderful. Breakfast was good. Hotel is located in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood.
Clean, friendly, great breakfast. Paid parking
Very clean. The bed was very comfortable.
great stay friendly staff perfect no

nice pool and hot tub, nice rooms clean and spacious
Nice balcony room with a view over the garden. Wi fi was really slow, no room service
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!
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!
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.
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.
Great staff. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room. Staff was apologetic though and assisted us as much as he can.
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.
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!
Beds were comfortable with nice pillows. Nice bathrooms. Quiet rooms. Clean. N/A
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.
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.
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.
Everything. Food very Good. Could not fault anything.
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.
Staff was very helpful, courteous, and , and kind Lack if security cameras in the oarking garage
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
Real nice place friendly staff and area around was very nice lots to do.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
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.
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..
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.
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.
I liked the spaciousness of the room and I really liked the large breakfast selection. I would have preferred two bathroom sinks.
This place is awesome. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful.
It was dirty and smelled weird.
Cheap, relatively clean Rooms and building exterior badly need rehabbing. Tub was patched with repair compound and needs to be reglazed. Shower head is waaaay too low, and I'm only 5'10
The staff at the Ramada in Burbank are very friendly and helpful. The rooms we clean and tidy and the furnishings had been updated in the last year or so. The only complaints are to do with the building. I believe this is an older building and you can tell. Our sink leaked pretty badly from the faucet into the cabinet under the sink. We would get standing water under the sink almost daily, and would try to wipe it out, but you could tell this was a constant problem; there was visible water damage and a little mold (it looked like the entire area had been scoured recently or there may have been more). My other complaint was the shower. This place probably has old piping and without a huge renovation I don't know what they could do about this, but they have some kind of hot water heater/weird piping gremlin here. No matter what temperature you try to get the shower to, whether it's ice cold or as hot as it will get, the temperature changes constantly and dramatically. i would be in the shower and suddenly the water would get completely scalding. This wasn't right after I got in it would be about six minutes in and I hadn't touched anything. So I turn the temperature down all the way and the water gets hotter. Way hotter. I'm standing in the shower and I have to get out because the water is going to burn me. I stood there for five more minutes waiting for it to cool down enough to get back in and wash the shampoo out of my hair. I barely got it rinsed it before the temp jumped back up again, and the temperate was still set for as cold as it would go. Later that day, hours later, when my husband went to use the shower, He would have either scalding water or ice cold water and no in between. We found this problem to be constant in our 7 day stay. We also had the maintenance people look at the sink and they tried to fix it but it didn't really work. It didn't really bother me, I just wiped out the standing water but I was worried about water damage to their hotel and I leaking through to the room below if the problem went unchecked or unnoticed by the next guest. So the pipes are old and the shower was frustrating and you had to be careful using the sink so you didn't flood the area, but the staff is lovely and the rooms were clean and the beds are comfortable. And they have free wifi and the pizza place will deliver to your room.
The carpets and floor were filthy
Poor hotel Infested with silver bag Poor internet so called free WiFi
Acoustic insulation is not good at all. We could hear every conversations of people walking by our room. Both queen bed is squeeking too much and curtain has multiple holes.
The room size Very out of date, not worth the price. Needs to be 25% cheaper.
The beds very hard.
The room was cleaned daily, beds were made and they have lots of pillows in the room. Couldn't hear noise from other rooms. Although you are right by the freeway, you don't hear lots of noise. Little to no parking. One day we came back late to the room and there was no parking, and it was confusing on where it was ok to park out on the street. My husband had to help me take the kids up stairs then come down and park the car in a compact area. The check in staff was not the friendliest.
Some of the front desk staff was polite. Pool was a decent size. Bed was not leveled .Floors also felt like it had holes at least 1 square foot in some spots. Shower head was pretty dirty. The noise was bad from construction crew that was fixing a room close to my room. Noise from highway was pretty bad early morning and late at night. Walls were so thin that I heard conversations as if I was in the same room.
It was probably an awesome place in 1982 when it was last remodeled... First time I've ever been to a hotel that there was no cold water in the shower. I've had lots of no hot water experiences, but only scalding hot water was a first.
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.
Me and my companion felt like we were in a vacation somewhere in an island. The location was perfect and the trees outside our balcony was so welcoming, I didn't feel cooped up and stuffy like how I usually do when I stay at a hotel. However, the bathtub took a while for the water to go down the drain but this is just something minor. I will definitely stay there again.
Absolutely nothing. First of all, there was construction in front of the hotel which began at 6:45am! The hotel didn't warn us of that. Then, there grounds were really dirty and maybe it was the plants around the property, but it smelt like urine everywhere. The parking in the back of the hotel was very creepy and scary. The bed was horrible.
Conveniently located in a familiar neighborhood where I lived for 30 years.
I got a great rate on a comfortable room. I have been going there as my daughter attended college nearby. Unforturnately she is changing colleges and will be in downtown LA next year. I was really happy to find a good motel in that area!!! Esp like the breakfast and the pool always looks so inviting--never got to use it. I have stayed there at least 3 times maybe 4.
It's a peace place. There are some old furniture on the room
It was very relaxing staying there. Me and my partner felt that we were somewhere secluded. No traffic noise whatsoever. The bed was uncomfortable. It took awhile for the bathtub to drain, but overall, you get your money's worth.
