Firstly, hotwire gave this dump a 4 star, which is a clear lie, as Mikado self proclaims to be a 3 star. Secondly, the hotwire price was a whopping $150, which is about the same as the walk in rate. Where is the deal? Although the rooms were tidy, and the lobby was clean, the location is in a bad... More

This was our first time in LA visiting family. This is a straight up motel disguised as a hotel. The room smelled stale and walls and floor are paper thin. Nice private balcony and bathroom was soooo small. Not coming back here again.

First and foremost, a hotel is a place that provides a place to sleep when you are away from home. Unfortunately, my one night at the Mikado Hotel was marred by an unwelcome wakeup call at 6:30am. While checking in, I was told I would need to move my car from the hotel parking lot by 7am the following morning,... More

This place has gotten some pretty gnarly reviews, and was I was very weary of my visit, but it was just around the corner from our friends home, plus it was a holiday weekend, so we took our chances and hoped for the best. Went with husband and two young children for 2 nights, and we were very satisfied with... More

The court yard was pretty and the room clean but I will say the room smelled "stale". It was fine for an overnight stay but I would pick somewhere else for a longer stay. It's a good location if you need to be in the valley. The hotel is nice just nothing special.

I stayed here because it was the chosen hotel for a nearby writing conference at Los Angeles Valley College and there was a faculty party at the Mikado restaurant, which I assumed might result in drinking and the need for staying off the roads. After reading several bad reviews on TripAdvisor, I was a bit concerned but decided to go... More

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. The only drawback was some freeway and airplane noise (burbank airport?) The front desk staff was friendly and courteous. The Mikado resturant was excellent.

We stayed here for 2 nights for a wedding and the Mikaydo was recommended as the closest motel (no it's really not a hotel) We are often fairly forgiving when it comes to reviews, and I really wanted to give a positive review, but can't and here's why: 1. The main issue was the security of the rooms, the key... More

The hotel was adequate for a nights stay. It's very convenient for Universal Studios which is the main reason we chose it. We stayed with our 3 sons and it suited us. The rooms were clean and quiet. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. I didn't think it was overpriced and was pleased with 5 of us to consider... More
