We arrived at this hotel with some trepidation after reading the mixed reviews. I would disagree that the staff is 'unfriendly'. Reserved, maybe, and not outgoing, but I believe they were trying to overcome that review. The wife of the owner, who checked us in, had difficulty finding our reservation, but it was honored when I presented our printout of the confirmation. It turned out there had been a computer outage at some point, as the owner explained to us later in the day.
This is an old motel, but the room was clean and had everything we needed. The owners are obviously trying to keep up with everything that everyone expects these days....hair dryer, mini-fridge, microwave. The ice machine had plenty of ice, which we had not had at a more expensive place in Calabasas the previous three nights.
The continental breakfast was minimal, but with so many dining options nearby...who cares? The location was great and why spend three times as much for a little better breakfast?
We'd recommend asking for a room on the second floor, as I'm sure it was a little noisier downstairs. Again, it is an older place, so a little noise from nextdoor was kind of expected...that will depend on your neighbors more than anything.
Our rate was around $86.00/night.
