This Holiday Inn Express is an older facility, but has been updated to be generally very good and comfortable. Room was large, clean, and comfortable, as was the bathroom. My room was very quiet - though I was on the backside of the motel rather than facing busy Cahuenga. The only downsides are really that some of the common areas... More

The hotel was 'tired' but in a great location for Universal Studios and just off the main road into Hollywood. Could walk to Universal but along main roads. Good parking and really friendly and obliging staff. Good breakfast choice and lots to go at, which was regularly refreshed. Small indoor pool. Laundry room with 1 washer and 1 dryer so... More

Was looking to find a hotel around Burbank under $150 a night, which is hard to find. This place had a very good location. Otherwise, service very average. Asked for a quiet room away from elevator/stairs. After packing suitcases up all the way to 3rd floor only to find out we were directly beside the elevator. Had to go all... More

We just returned from a trip to LA and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Cahuenga for 5 nights. I chose it for its convenient location - just a 15 minute walk from the Universal Studios Theme Park. I just want to say thanks to Ben (GM) and his team for an excellent stay. They took care of us in... More

I whole-heartedly agree with previous three reviewers. Good free breakfast (hot and cold items to choose from), convenient free parking, free internet in lobby and in room, clean pool. Also, comfy bed, linens, pillows, plush towels, cute terrace, clean, spacious room with most of the amenities you would want. Super friendly and helpful staff (they went the extra mile compared...

Not only was this hotel clean and comfortable and the people who worked there were more than helpful! If you are planning a trip to Universal Studios you MUST stay here, it is a few blocks away from Universal Studios. Right off the freeway. The breakfast was great fresh baked cinamon rolls, omletes, sausage gravy and biscuits and many other... More

If you want to go to Universal Studios, stay here. The hotel was very well equipped with nice room and bed, good breakfast (although not enough space in the dining room) and a 5 minute walk to Universal Studios. The hotel also had free wireless internet access. We arrived early and were checked into a room before 11am and when... More

I looked for a well known motel close to The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, little did I know that all Holiday Inn Express Motels are not equal. I called an hour outside of town and asked if there was a chance that my room would be ready early, this was at noon. They told me that the room was... More
