My teenage daughter and I were in L. A. for 24 hours at the end of a soccer tourny in San Diego. We hit Universal Studios, made the last tram tour, came out exhausted, dirty and with no place to stay at 9:00 pm. We checked our GPS and the first on the list was this place. We called, got... More

Michael was very pleasant and professional in checking myself, sister and niece in. It took all of ten minutes to sign in and get the room. But, all of an hour and a half to get settled. But, the end result was FANTASTIC !! The room I booked was a double queen room, however the tv didn't work. The employees... More

We were there during the Memorial Weekend. We stayed at the suite, which is pretty good with one room with a king-size bed and another room with two-queen beds. The rooms were fairly clean and comfortable. However, as we were getting ready to check out, we realized that a bag that we have brought up to the room when we... More

We stayed here two separate times during the last week of March as we had flights in and out of Burbank airport. This hotel is very convienent to the airport (5 miles away) and also many local sights we were visiting (hollywood area, universal and warner brother studios, hollywood bowl, la brea tar pits). Breakfast and free parking a plus.... More

This hotel was a nice find. The rooms were clean and roomy and the breakfast in the morning was chock full of variety. We were very weary travellers when we came upon this hotel, and knowing the Holiday Inn Express name we thought we couldnt go wrong. The staff were very nice as well. Priced at $140/night in LA we...

We stayed for 2 nights in Dec. 2007. Our party consisted of 2 adults, and 3 young children. I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel staff was very friendly, the room was a nice size and clean, and there were complimentary water bottles and snacks (chocolates and cookies). We didn't hear any of the road/freeway noise, and our room did face... More

I was happy with this hotel. My teenage daughter and I stayed for 4 days while in LA. Clean room, felt safe, friendly staff. Our room was next to a family with small children and we could hear them crying and banging things around, but it was not enough to discourage me from staying here again. Close to Universal Studios,... More

This is a nice hotel, close to universal, not a far drive from Hollywood Blvd, right at a freeway exit/entrance. Starbucks is right across street, 2 fast food places down street but nothing else good is close at least that I saw. The breakfast was horrible, the room was not vacuumed well, and there were ants in the bathroom. I... More

We booked our reservation six weeks in advance, requesting the quietest room possible. We were given a room in the front of the hotel, facing a frontage road, next to a major freeway. The traffic noise didn't stop all night. Plus, the room was next to the elevator and the vending machines. This is a quiet room?! At checkout, another... More
