“outdated but great location”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I stayed at the Best Western Mikado inn 2 weeks ago for 10 days. I've been to LA several times, and this location in Sherman Oaks is by far the best area to stay in. It is close to the freeways, easy access to downtown hollywood or glendale/burbank area.

This Best Western is privately owned, so I had my trepidations from the start. Lobby was nice, but the rooms are definitely out dated. Our room faced a small parking lot and the freeway, there is no inside hallway- just your room and the parking lot (motel style). It didn't feel like the safest place to sleep. Carpets were very dirty, I refused to walk around barefoot. The best part of the room was the showerhead!

Breakfast was good in the mornings, but they put out the same food so we were sick of it halfway through our trip. Wifi is accessible in the room but good luck getting any work done on it because it is extremely slow.

Overall, decent room for the price,staff was very friendly but I don't think I would go back. I would pay a little more and stay at a Sheraton or Westin.

Whoever owns this Best Western Mikado Inn needs to update the rooms, because the location is great!

The calm and quiet Japanese ambiance, along with the comfortable room, made my stay here very relaxing. I was pleased with how convienent the location is for the north Los Angeles area. Reuela was very helpful and friendly. We were glad we chose this as our place to stay.

Room Tip: My 2nd floor balcony was a treat because I could enjoy fresh air all night for a good night's sl...

We stayed at this hotel for 9 nights and were very pleased. The room and the hotel in general were very clean. There was a complementary hot breakfast every morning and is was very good. We would stay there again.

The rooms are clean. The vanity area is separate from the toilet and shower. Breakfast was good but they didn't keep enuf food in the warmers. Bedding was clean but old. GR8 landscaping. Easy parking.

I didn't realize this when I booked it but you pull around to the back of the hotel where it is dark and you access your room from the outside. I felt uneasy and unsafe. The breakfast was okay at best. I would not stay here again.

This hotel was really good for my wife and I. Very convenient with a parking place for our car, a nice room (very low toilet though) an ice machine and not far from the mains attractions.
I will come back !!!!

This Best Western is nothing fancy, but it is a tremendous value in the Hollywood/LA area. At only 10 minutes from Universal Studios and about 30 minutes from the coast it is easily accessible. As a family of four, we appreciated the included breakfast. The pool area seemed a little run-down; however the service was excellent both at check-in and check-out. It was a clean, decent room and though nothing fancy, it was more than satisfactory for us, since we weren't spending much time there anyway.
