Upon my arrival, the outside of the hotel was filthy. The staff was completely rude. I entered my room and I immediately saw how the bed sheets were dirty! Gross. The entire room was disgusting. The lights in the bathroom didn’t work. The shower doors didn’t stay closed so when I showered I had to keep closing them but it still soaked the entire bathroom. Didn’t feel comfortable or safe. Would not recommend! Will recommend ppl to NOT stay here!

We are spending several weekends in the area over the month of September and October this year and trying different hotels as we get the lay of the land. This is our third, and pretty much tied with the Tarzana Inn down the street for pricing.for the price we were not expecting Hilton or Marriott experience, and this review reflects that as we consider this a budget level hotel and want to make it clear that we take that into account in the rating. This facility has kind of a fun and funky appearance and is a face-lifted much older property on the exterior. The lobby is currently closed and you are asked to check in at the thickly glassed night window in broad daylight. At checkin we were told our King room had been overbooked but they could put us in a double. This ended up being two queen beds which was fine.. Little has been done to the outside, but the room we had was was nicely updated and matched the pics submitted by other users. Beds and pillows we found to be very comfortable, and the room was well stocked with coffee, fridge, iron, microwave, and blow-dry as well as a magnifying mirror. For sake of curiosity we tried the takeaway breakfast which was a water, a juice, a Danish, a granola bar, and a pudding. We thought it a decent effort on their part. Staff at checkin and checkout were attentive and friendly, and although working through the one window, they made effort to help the next guest before I was done with checkin. Up to this point the place is performing well, but now here comes the cons leading up to our final score. It is located directly adjacent to the 101 freeway and despite being a heavy sleeper I was awoken several times through the night by racing engines. Two car alarms went off in the night and there were wafts of Marijuana from outside the room that was definitely on property as I bumped into.one of the smokers in the morning enjoying a mid morning joint outside his room. We also both noticed that the floor of the room was clearly in need of a vacuuming. In a carpeted room it might not have been noticeable, but on the hard floors here, the little bits of dirt, grass and other crud were pretty noticeable in multiple locations. So between the noise level, the cleanliness, and the weed, we just couldn't go with a four here. Our experience down the street with a similarly priced hotel was better for room cleanliness and noise. It had hard floors too by the way. Would I stay here again? I wouldn't avoid it, but I don't think this would be my first choice. Wife and I were split a bit. Wife initially liked this property better than the comparable down the street, but I was the opposite.

Hi grandmastermichaelp, Thank you for your review of the recent stay with us. We are sensing some mixed sentiments in your review which is a perfect measure of the kind of hospitality that we're providing and the necessary improvements which still need to be introduced from our side. There's nothing called a perfect hotel experience if the guests do not take to this platform to voice their opinion with extreme honesty. We thank you for sharing your concerns with us along with the positives. We assure you that we'll look into these areas and take the necessary corrective action by assigning the respective teams to their respective tasks. We look forward to welcoming you again and assure you the best of our services in the future! Had you advised us about the noise issue at the time, we would have rectified the situation immediately or possibly offered you a room move. Please know that we are always there to assist you with your needs. We hope that you will give us another chance to host you impeccably the next time! Best Regards, Customer Care Team

We arrived and the room was clean and beautiful. We did have a small issue as we asked for two double beds and got a king instead(3 people family) we shared the bed for the first night since they said they ran out of rooms.. Housekeeping did great on their stay over cleaning. WiFi didn’t work well for us but thankfully we were out all day. Overall okay hotel.

I stayed at this hotel several times in the past when it was a Comfort Inn and was always very happy. But something has changed after the re-model and name change. First the Wi-Fi. It was HORRIBLE! We were never able to connect so if it’s a must for you...avoid this hotel. Staff said that it was probably due to alot of people using it at the same time. Problem is the hotel was almost empty. The elevator was also broken the entire week we were there and we were on the 3rd floor. The refrigerator was barely cool to the touch, also the door locks do not self close like most hotel doors. You literally have to SLAM the door with force to close it. The adjacent rooms were the same so we were constantly awakened at all hours from doors being slammed shut. We also had to switch rooms the first night when the heater was inoperable. What’s disturbing is that the issues I mentioned, fridge, wi-fi, doors, I found reviews back in 2019 about the exact same items! So the hotel has still not repaired them. It’s a shame because it used to be a real nice place. It does have a comfy bed, pillows, nice TV, and good towels, and was clean.
