After booking this room via hotwire, I was concerned about the reviews on here. However, after staying here, I am surprised by some of the poor reviews. When I was searching, I found this to be an affordable alternate to the overpriced rooms in Hollywood. I was concerned about this being a motel, with doors that open straight to outside, but once I arrived, I felt like the area was safe, and I didn't worry about it. The free and ample parking more than made up for it.
The hotel is on a main road and there is expressway noise outside, but I felt as if our room was quiet enough. You may want to request a room on the front side if noise is a concern. There are several chain restaurants within a few minutes drive, and if you take Laurel Canyon Road, you can be in Hollywood in just a few minutes. Also, Universal Studios is just up Ventura Blvd.
The free breakfast includes hot eggs, sausage, potatoes, and eggo type waffles in addition to the normal cold breakfast items. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool.
If you require a Marriott, and are willing to pay $200+ for one if Hollywood, then you may not like this motel. However, if you are a price conscious family traveler, this may be your best bet for Hollywood attractions.
