Reasonably priced, clean, well located, good pool for the area, BUT there are serious Drawbacks for the business traveler: Breakfast restaurant, while good, does not open until 7. If you want a workout it is an extra charge and you have to go next door. A fridge is an extra $20 per stay. Coffee service in the room only provides... More

From the lobby's movie photos and painted white deer heads, to the huge pool and palm trees the Sportsmens Lodge is a great blend of classic time gone by and modern updates. Big rooms, comfortable beds, terraces or pool access, I love staying here. Great service and affordable rates! It's a winner every time!

An incredibly relaxing, easygoing place to stay. The staff is marvelous....from top to bottom. Probably the largest swimming pool of any hotel in LA. Some may think that Studio City is not as "hip" as staying on Sunset Blvd.....but,it's a pleasanter area to walk; Ventura Blvd. has a multitude of shops & you don't get crowds of tourists looking for...

I stayed here recently while moving my daughter to LA and I was very pleased. It had a kind of retro feel and seemed very LA. It was clean and well kept, the beds were comfortable and the view was lovely. We had breakfast every morning in the cafe and it was excellent. The pool area is lovely and clean.... More

The hotel recently underwent a huge renovation from north woods Americana to minimalist Hollywood kitsch. The property still however feels rundown. The carpet looks gross and the new paint is already scuffed up in many places. The fit and finish is a little sloppy. The room is so minimalist there is no art on the walls, one place to sit...

Room was excellent, right next to pool but winter so not too noisy. Wifi worked great. Best feature was service...left my jacket in hotel room when I checked out, staff found it, called my cell to let me know. Don't know a lot of hotels in this tier who would do that. Great dining options/grocery store in walking distance. Will... More

Considering where my meetings were over the week, this hotel was the most central. Traffic in LA is a bear and even with Waze, you can't avoid it. So, it is difficult to decide on where to stay. The Sportsmen's Lodge has a long history and even though they have spruced the place up, it is still dated. However, the... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. For the price this hotel delivers with great customer service, modern yet retro finishes, very chic & hip. The room was fantastic & the pool is reminiscent of the show Melrose Place. Very 60's/70's however modern. The only thing is this hotel isn't in an ideal location unless you're just wanting to be near Universal... More

Great location with many interesting shops nearby. Safe to walk around at night and by yourself. Bus at front door. Metro close by. The hotel staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Ariel was very helpful and the hotel has a shuttle to Universal studios. The Patio Cafe serves amazing good value food and has a very nice atmosphere. Will definitely... More

Terrible...disappointing and blatantly RUDE!!! After years of coming to this establishment, multiple extended stays, and thousands of dollars spent between rooms and "f&b"...management was down right grossly disrespectful because I booked through "hotel tonite"...refusing any future reservations going forward...customer service...they are lacking in a huge way!!! I've experienced kids "pooping" in the pool, kids running up and down the halls,... More
