“Hard to find, squeezed in behind a Wendy's...but it's a gem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

I stayed here on points and it took about 5-10 minutes to find it. If you're familiar with that section on Ventura Blvd between Fallbrook Avenue and Topanga Canyon, it is congested and impossible to see specific businesses. I say, look for the Wendy's, it is next/behind it. The hotel is a recent re-do and is quiet and has probably the best cable selection I have ever seen at a hotel and I've been to many "real" 5 star hotels. They have top notch security, so it would be hard for any sketchy types to loiter around on go straight to the rooms. The staff are great except for this one tool, "Ali". Highly recommended.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

My partner and I stayed here for a total of 9 nights in Sep 2011. The rooms are clean and functional - We had a normal room for 7 days and came back at the end of our trip for 2 nights in a suite. The suite was much larger, which suited us with our huge amount of luggage! The breakfast is complimentary but was pretty average....We only had it a couple of days and just had toast and a juice. Parking is free, which is great. The pool is tiny so if you are looking for a place to lounge around the pool, this would probably not be the place for you. The only real downside to this hotel is that the free wireless cut out about every 5 minutes so we had to constantly keep logging back on. We spoke to reception about this and they said they had re-set it but it made no difference. They have a computer room if you get sick of the wifi playing up or need to print tickets, etc. Right next door to the hotel is a supermarket and a burger place, which is convenient. We would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The suites are quite a bit larger.

This was actually a nice hotel just as Holiday Inn Express hotels usually are. I would recommend the hotel but just plan on having breakfast somewhere else.

We had one of the King Suites, which was kind of unusual for a Holiday Inn Express to have that large of a room. The furnishings seemed pretty new, but the hallway smelled funky. If you have business in the area and the location is convenient, you could do worse, but don't expect to want to spend any time in the neighborhood. The funkiest part was the tiny swimming pool which was shoe-horned onto the side of the building right outside several rooms. I can imagine someone walking out, taking three steps and falling in the pool.

Room Tip: They are all about the same

I stayed here in July 2011with my 17 year old. It was very clean and quiet. Breakfast had much more variety than I expected- pancakes,omelettes,scarmbled eggs depending on the day. Hotel staff were very courteous and friendly- definitely recommend!Exrtremely convenient for visiting the Malibu area- less than 30 minutes to the beach!

Found this hotel online. It turned out to be a very nice place to stay. Free parking in underground garage, free stepped up hot breakfast, free newspaper. The room had granite counter tops and the beds were very comfortable. There was even a fridge & microwave. Next door there is a Wendys on one side and a grocery on the other. I would stay there again if in the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

This is a one year new HI Express. Rooms are comfortable and large. Windows views are minimal as this complex is squeezed into a rather narrow lot. Upstairs parking is very limited and it's very easy to get fooled into driving all the way to the end and discover that all the spaces are taken. There is ample parking in the underground garage. Recommend going that route first. Breakfast was a bit shy north of mediocore. Eggs tasted premade, sausage was greasy. Their pancake making machine was kind of unique and made decent flapjacks. The king bed I had was adequate as best.....it was on the firm side and felt as though there was a plastic sheet beneath the fitted sheet. I also found it odd that there was a floor drain in the bathroom that constantly gurgled from water flushing through it. No pay tv, but oodles of free cable channels including a handful of HBO channels. Signage for hotel is minimalist at best. I drove right past the place when I first arrived. Desk clerk said that the city made them take down their big sign. This is the San Fernando Valley....there are no signage rules. Anyway, when I'm back in the area I would consider staying here. Hot Tip....if you looking for a good breakfast place....try Bobby's.....it's about a half-mile west from the hotel. Great food!
