“I'd stay here again”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

This was much nicer than I expected. I chose it based on it's location to the 405. A quick exit on and off. It reminds me of the old-style motor lodges. I felt it was a reasonably good price, compared to some other hotels I've stayed in that weren't nearly as clean. My only beef, and it's no fault of the hotels, is that a few people woke me up by yelling at night, or talking loud on the phone outside - which tended to echo throughout the complex.

It's a little annoying that tour buses seem to be parked outside all the time I was there. It made finding it initially more difficult, and certainly more difficult getting out of the parking lot into LA traffic.

All staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. A pleasant change.

I frequently visit LA on business and I always stay at this hotel. It offers value for money and a good level of comfort and cleanliness. It is not luxurious or glamorous The staff are always friendly and helpful. There is free parking unlike LAX hotels. It is pretty easy to get into LA, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and also the Valley (avoid rush hours).

Service was very good as were the rooms. Both check in and out were quick and staff courteous, food @ the Denny's was decent and within walking distance. Will use this hotel again when in the area as it is close to the main freeway system.

My husband and I stayed here in June this year while travelling across the USA after booking groupon deals for a few best western hotels. This hotel on arrival looked great, the staff were friendly and helpful and we were checked in quickly. The room was large, clean and well appointed, the bed was very comfortable and the large television and fridge were definite plus points. We ate at the Dennys that was on-site and had some excellent meals in there.

We stayed here as part of a Travelsphere Western U.S.A. tour. This was our first stop for two nights and have to say the room was very comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed, including free wi fi, coffee maker, and swimming pool. We eat at Dennys which was attached and would definately recommend.

We have stayed at this property several times when visiting my daughter in Sherman Oaks. It has always been a good experience. Check in is always easy and the people are friendly. There is a Denny's on site, which is great but can be a bit noisy if your room is near it. We generally ask to be in the back tower section, which is a little quieter and has elevators if you are above the 1st floor. Our request has always been accommodated. It is right next to the 405, so there can be a bit of traffic noise, but the rooms are still pretty quiet all things considered. It has always been clean, well-kept and have small refrigerators, beds are very comfy and there is easy access to both the 405 & 101 freeways. Overall a very good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the restaurant. We like the south tower rooms best and prefer the 2nd or 3...

The STAFF at the Best Western in Sherman Oaks California made the stay Most pleasant. After a very long day of driving and Business meetings, the friendly front desk and the Comfortable Clean room is what makes this stay worth mentioning.
