We had a great stay here. Breakfasts were good, rooms were clean (though tired), and the staff were helpful. The restaurant joining the hotel was pricey but worth it. Heated pool was great. Even saw two stars! Location is ideal for getting about - plenty on the doorstep, and in the car 15 mins to Sunset Boulevard and 20 minutes...

I stayed here during renovation.... I get it there is going to be some inconvenience with construction going on. That being said they did not close any rooms for occupancy near the construction site. So of course I had a nice 8 am wake up call when the room started shaking and a loud jackhammer noise filled the room. Upon...

Lovely welcoming staff in the lobby and the restaurant. Extremely handy for Universal Studios and the touristy sites of Hollywood and the Hollywood sign. Nice big twin bedded room with good iszed bathroom. Apparently the hotel is being refurbished, which it does need as it is tired looking. There is a pool which looked good, although we didn't use it....

We stayed at the Sportsmans Lodge this summer for 5 days as we were visiting friends close by. The pictures on the website are very misleading as on arrival, I did not recognise the hotel from the pictures. Dark and drab rooms and corridor with very bad lighting, stained furniture, very poor visibility of the pool considering we had a...

I've lived closed by for over 20 years and stayed at the Sportsmens Lodge frequently for weekend getaways over the years. As many have stated, the hotel is undergoing a complete renovation (kind of sad although the rooms could use updating). Nothing of the old "Lodge" is being retained. But the worst part is the awful music blaring out by...

Ok the place is being renovated. Great if you're staying after October. Not so good now until then. Our room dated, awful 1970's carpets along the corridors. Shower had mildew all over the head. When arrived to our room, the patio door to outside was broken and wouldn't lock. Had to wait to have it fixed as no other rooms....

We stayed at the hotel for two nights while visiting friends in LA. The location is great, very convenient to many attractions. The complimentary shuttle to Universal studios was a nice benefit. The rooms are outdated, however they are in the process of renovating the hotel. The pool area was very, very nice! We booked our room through priceline and...
