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.
Everything was perfect
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.
Staff and less than 10 minutes walking distance to Universal studio Wait for elevator and parking was pricey
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.
The staff, the comfy beds, location Funny smells, noisy electronics/shower, parking price. The place is good but could use an update
The pool, corner room & breakfast. The parking situation upon arrival.
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.
Walking distance to universal and reasonable droving distance to many LA locations. Cost of parking.
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
We stayed there before going to vegas for our honeymoon... Awesome place, staff is extremely friendly, totally recommended
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).
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.
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.
Great staff Double queen beds seemed a little small and mattresses were not very comfortable.
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.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. No breakfast for guests unless you pay at the restaurant or order room service.
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
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.
Vary close to park and city walk. Vary clean and friendly service.
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.
5 minutes walking to Universal Studios! Staff was super friendly and the room service was fanastic. Nothing!!!!
Close to visit Universal Studios and not far from airport.
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 proximity to Universal studios was great. The porter/valet, front desk and concierge were all very friendly.
They charge extra just to use wifi, which is typically a standard accommodation everywhere. The place is run down.
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.
The public area is very nice Check in was very delayed. No iron in room. No wifi and public computers didn't work properly
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.
Location as it is closed to the Universal studio No water being provided
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.
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).
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
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.
Everything was great! Would recommend to others
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.
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!
Why is there no pool at this facility?
Bedding was terrible, paper thin
Big room. Walking distance to shopping (Westfield Topanga). Noisy. The room is not well insulated from noise in the hall way and adjacent rooms. The mattress was too soft. The bed frame made noise and had to be fixed. No safe in the room for valuables. Internet costs extra. $17 for parking.
Price was,great for a safe and clean room. Had to pay $17 for parking when there are plenty of parking in near by malls. Room was no frills but clean and comfortable
Hotel is maintained nicely, staff is supportive and friendly. Rooms are showing their age. No in room safe, no in-room technology plate, wireless access only,
Friendly and helpful staff, room was very clean and comfortable they have removed the bath tubs, which was a bummer because I was really looking forward to a hot soak at the end of my day. Also, the overhead bathroom light automatically shuts off after a few minutes, so the room went mostly dark during my shower.
very good, clean room wake up call system not reliable
Staff was very nice. No Fridge in room. Windows didn't open.
Weekend rates were excellent and it is centrally located within a mile of dozens of restaurants, a movie theatre, malls, etc.. 15 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes from Hollywood. Great location if you are visiting someone in the West San Fernando Valley The lobby was under constructions so it was a little bit hectic with the limited operating space.
A jug of milk, ordered for my three young children was 22 dollars.
Due to an oversight from booking.com we ended up without a place to stay for the evening, we never tried kayak before and in less than a minute we secured a room, cheaper than the original booking. The hotel was clean room was spacious they had a shuttle in a three mile radius. Close to shops malls etc. Hated the lumpy pillows , gel pillows work so much better. Our heads weigh a lot so down pillows just get smashed down. Shower head was way too high and was low flow,
I had reserved 5 rooms each with 2 double beds. At checkin I was given 4 rooms each with a King bed & 1 room with 2 double beds. Each room was to accommodate a family of 4. Clearly, 4 people would not fit on 1 King bed. I was offered a rollaway in only 1 of the rooms with a King & told that there were no more rollaways available. Some members of my party could not stay at the hotel & went to stay with local relatives. Shame on Marriott for not honoring the reservations as made!!
Location and price. Starbucks in the lobby. The hotel overall felt old, tired and way overdue for a complete renovation.
The concierge office was good with instructions. Registration was friendly and helpful. When we first arrived and went to our room, they had not made the bed and the pillows were on the chair in the room. The room cleaning staff was not real up to the standard that Marriott offers other places. We found a wet towel on our side table one day, they never replaced the glasses once they were used. They either left them or just did not replace them even though they were gone or dirty. They did not remove used food on plates from the room - Had to place them in the hall for them to get taken. Left things as if they had not finished their job. It seems that the cleaning staff needs to be taught the proper things to do. DO NOT leave rooms unfinished! The concierge lounge was not what it has been at other stays in other areas. They ran out of food each evening. The selection was not at all what it has been other locations. The staff in this area were not very friendly.
We liked the comfortable beds and updated room. The hotel had everything we needed - although we didn't have the chance to try much out since we were staying there after a late wedding and left early morning. Valet was overpriced. For the price of the room self-park should at least be free. The room location (318) was level with the gravel top roof building below - unsightly and defeated the purpose of having a balcony.
The room was comfortable and adequate. It was pretty inexpensive going through an online source. Having said all the negative comments it is tons better than most hotel rooms I have been in. They did not give free wi fi. I tried to use my computer with a wire in the business room and it did not work. The lobby was so noisy that it was impossible to use the computer there even though in the lobby the wi-fi was "free". The parking was like a block away and you had to pay. They were short on amenities. I felt like they were nickel and diming me. The nice view they gave me was rather short on the nice. ,They did not give free wi fi. The parking was like a block away and you had to pay. They were short on amenities. I felt like they were nickel and diming me. The nice view they gave me was rather short on the 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
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
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.
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.
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 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 :(
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 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
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
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.
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
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
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!!
The rooms were amazing, and the view was very beautiful! The workers were very polite and very outgoing
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.
Great staff. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room. Staff was apologetic though and assisted us as much as he can.
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!
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
Nice balcony room with a view over the garden. Wi fi was really slow, no room service
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.
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!
nice pool and hot tub, nice rooms clean and spacious
Very clean. The bed was very comfortable.

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.
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Manager, was wonderful. Breakfast was good. Hotel is located in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood.
By far the nicest, cleanest, Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at.
Clean, friendly, great breakfast. Paid parking
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!!!
I like the layout of the hotel, design and location.
great stay friendly staff perfect no
