This hotel has a retro but modern feel to it. The room is quite big, although the bathroom is just enough size without being too small. The room was clean, wifi was not fast but it was usable. The room doesn't have any small fridge or security deposit box. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the universal studio which... More

We stayed at this property for three nights. Our room was very clean and looked like it had been recently renovated. We went to Universal Studios and the hotel has a shuttle several times a day, which was nice. The pool area is quite good. It has a blend of sunny and shady spots, a bar with reasonably priced drinks,... More

Good Price - But That's It! The Sportmen's Lodge was the best deal we could online. The front desk crew were very nice. Unfortunately they place has seen better days. We moved room 3 times to get one that didn't smell bad. We also had to hold our breath in the hallways. It's a 2 towel hotel. Why? Well, you... More

This is certainly no "chain" hotel and has a wonderfully unique "chic" feel to it, apparently having been recently renovated. It has a fascinating history linked closely to the early days of Hollywood and the film industry, which the hotel makes very interesting use of to help give it its unique feel. The rooms are very good; bright, large, clean... More

This was booked for us by a travel firm. The hotel was clean and tidy and staff were friendly. Free overnight parking was a pleasant surprise as was the free shuttle bus to universal studios. Room was massive and modern. Only thing stopping me giving it 5 rating is walls and doors were a bit thin and as such we... More

I’ll make this quick. We did a day pass to the pool. We’ve known about this place for a couple years, but hadn’t gone, because how good could it really be, right? Well, it’s GREAT! The pool is large, plenty of very comfortable loungers, plenty of shade or sun, the right amount of crowd, and a good blend of people.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were really happy with the hotel. We had previously stayed here 2 years ago before the refurbishment and wow what a difference! The rooms were lovely and spacious, the pool was lovely and the restaurant was nice and not to expensive. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the only slight disappointment was... More

Booked this as a last minute planned vacation (1 week prior) to universal studios. This wasn't my first choice but I didn't have any other choice. All other hotels were too far or to expensive. I mainly went with this hotel because it was close to the park and also provided free shuttle service. Arriving there I was able to... More

The Sportsmen's Lodge is an older hotel that has been updated with a trendy, chic vibe. They are obviously capitalizing on its Hollywood history. The lobby has a cool, 1960's feel, with classic movies shown on a giant tv screen. The room was clean and serviceable. Nothing too special, but comfortable. The walls were a bit thin, and I could...
