Reviewed 20 July 2014

The Tarzana Inn is a small 50s built hotel in between Sherman Oaks and Woodland Hills off 101. Although it is a 50s hotel it features a courtyard so almost all of the rooms face in towards the pool, which is always a decided security advantage. The pool is small but there and very usable. The rooms are not terribly large but there is room for the usual coffee maker, frig, and a good desk for WiFi on a laptop. The bathrooms are large.About a half mile in either direction there are good restos, Starbucks, Whole Foods supermarket, and shops.We had big lunches out during our visit and bought wonderful salads to go to eat around the pool in the evening. We prefer to be in neighborhoods rather than the tourist section of cities so we were well pleased. For around $100 this is a bargain in LA. Mr. and Mrs. Patel, the owners, are quite eager to please and we felt quite comfortable there.

Room Tip: Avoid the odd few rooms showing to the parking lot. Ask for pool view. The pool can be boisterous...

If you are looking for a very inexpensive hotel, this one will give you value in the valley. Free WI FI, breakfast I believe is included too. I don't need the breakfast as I am here for a nearby meeting that will include meals. Starbucks is 1/2 a mile away, as is Whole Foods. Rooms are clean & quaint.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean and have a coffee maker and fridge. There is a pool and free parking. It's not fancy, but if you are visiting friends or family in the Valley or don't mind driving a little further to see the tourist sites, this is great place.
Though it is right across from the freeway, we didn't hear any freeway noise.
If you want to avoid the freeways use Burbank Boulevard to go east and west and either Sepulveda Boulevard or Benedict or Laurel Canyons to go north or south, you'll have a prettier, less stressful drive

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor if you don't mind climbing a fight of steps. The first floor room...

This hotel is just mediocre. The bathroom is VERY small and really, rooms at a Motel 6 are nicer.the location here is good however, a nice area., and they do have a decent self serve breakfast available.,because of this and the location it gets a 3 rating.This motel is ok, just not worth 100 $ per night in my opinion.

Room Tip: Choose the first floor , too many stairs.

We traveled to Los Angeles CA to visit our son - and I simply wanted somewhere clean that was close to his home. I stumbled upon the Tarzana Inn and had him check it out for us. Got the OK and booked 3 rooms for 8 nights. It is very unassuming and on a busy street - but the rooms are clean, there's more than ample free parking and the courtyard is really beautiful. There is a complimentary breakfast; bagels, toast, cereal, sweet rolls with coffee/juice which was very satisfactory. The only small complaints we had were: Room 125 has a VERY small shower stall only, room 105 has a window in the bathtub overlooking the Chevron Station next door. This was only problem at night because of the light - and my husband and I simply closed the bathroom door, and finally - one day the cleaning crew turned our A/C off so it was quite stuffy and warm when we returned at 10 pm. Beyond those small complaints we were very satisfied with the location (easy on/off the 101) and the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with tub/shower - and preferably on the west/north/south side of the building. In add...

The Tarzana Inn is a really good hotel with a great value.
It not far from Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Hollywood, rooms are good and clean and parking is free.
They have free Wifi and complimentary breakfast which is ok for the price.
A Pool is also available but we haven't used it.

All in all we were very satisfied and would come again or recommend this place.

Request a room with a tub bath. The first room we had (101) had a glass door enclosed shower stall. The bathroom was so small, the shower stall glass door hit the toilet, and could not open completely. Also, room 101 had windows facing the Chevron gas station next door. My daughter was wakened by some loud music coming from a car getting gas.

Tarzana Inn was a very tranquil place to stay. once we were out of room 101 and into room 122.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side have windows facing the Chevron gas station next door, may have noise issues.
