“Just an OK stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

We have always had great success staying in a Holiday Inn but this place was only a so-so. Room was very small, carpet didn't look especially clean. TV remote didn't work-had to go to the lobby for new batteries. Bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was ok although the hot water dispenser was empty. I had to track someone down and ask for her to refill it so I could have my tea. No free paper offered either, I had to go to the desk and request. Was told I got the "last one"! Usually one is left outside our door!

Room Tip: Ask for a room AWAY from the freeway. The other side of the hotel is quieter.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

Normally stay there when visiting/working at the brewery since my hours require me to be there early, late and everywhere in between. It's a very short drive to the brewery (1/4 mile or so) and you have pretty easy access via the freeway to Sherman Oaks mall aread for restaurants, etc. Not much to eat right at that spot and not sure I'd be walking around too much late at night, but right aroudnd the hotel it's fine. TIP: the closest Starbucks is actually in the Jaguar dealership (inside...no signs but it's there) right down the street (travel away from freeway for about 3 storefronts). It's walkable from the hotel if you can't stand the nasty hotel coffee.

I was happy to get the room I wanted - wide and facing city not an airport. It was a good size room with comfortable beds. Swimming pool was great. We had really good time. Breakfast was all right. It's nothing compared to breakfast in European hotels though.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2010

We stayed here with two other parties from our family for a funeral. Upon arrival we were greeted politely and the check in was smooth. We went up to our room and it was small as other reviews stated. What was not expected was the smell! It took us a bit to figure out what it was and as far as we can figure, it smelled like urine!!! NASTY is all I can say about that. As for the rest of the room, the bathroom was not very clean, the vent was caked with dirt and dust. The corners and baseboards of the room obviously had not been tended to in some time. The walls also had what appeared to be 'splatter' marks on them. We also saw what looked like blood on the elevator wall. The two other parties with us were charged 90 dollars extra than what they booked for online and when they brought it to the attention of the desk the morning of check out, he had no clue what they were talking about nor how to fix it. He said that it must be that the estimated taxes went up?!?!? He then had them wait until the manager could come in so that it could be remedied. This same person was unable to find hot cocoa mix for the beverage area at breakfast. And speaking of breakfast, it was fine.... except there was no fruit as stated there would be. The area this hotel is in is not the best.... We will certainly not be returning.

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel, stayed 4 nights. Chose this hotel again because it is close to where our family lives.

Basic hotel, nothing fancy, but great service. Staff is friendly. Used the outdoor pool this time twice, very clean and nicely landscaped. Used business centre in lobby as well to print boarding pass. Extra towels provided as requested. Pop machine on each floor, snack machine just off lobby.

Highly recommended if you are wanted a clean basic hotel.
