At first when driving into the hotel we were like "oh brother what did we book". After being checked in by the nicest staff ever we walked up into our room and were amazed by how clean and modern the room was. A huge king bed with a couch, a coffee table, a nice desk space, flat screen TV. Super clean bathroom as well. We did not try the breakfast nor any other amenities at the hotel as we left early the next morning.
Very affordable choice for the area. Recently renovated, room is clean and modern, attractive. Toiletries are a step up from most bargain hotels/motels. Lovely large TV, usb ports and plugs in desk area, dimmer lights by bed. Fridge, microwave and a keurig! Lots of drawers and a decent sized closet for those planning on a longer stay. Couch and table area for lounging. Everything you need for a trip away.
I stayed for a couple of nights. I needed a handicap room as I am on a Knee Scooter for right now. When I arrived the manager made immediate accommodations for me to be in a handicap room and make sure I did not need additional assistance. The room was big, spacious, everything worked and looked newly remodeled. If you need to be in the Canoga Park for a night this is the place. My plans changed a few times while there on how long I was going to stay and a brief talk with the staff I was assured that they could accommodate me and my schedule. Based on price value this place has it! I will stay here anytime I have to be in the area for business.
We stayed for couple of nights. The room is very spacious and the parking is free of charge. The hotel is located about 1 hour by car from universal studio, beverlly hills and Santa Monica. The breakfest in this hotel isn't good. Be aware that there aren't any normal places for dinner around the hotel in a walking distance. Overall it was a nice stay.
My family of 3 stayed 2 nights at this former Ramada Inn which is rated 2-1/2 stars. Unfortunately the remodelling is not complete, so I would rate it at 2 stars in its current state. The continental breakfast definitely fits a 2 star category. Here are my comments -- positive comments first, then negative. The Positives: (1) The beds are extremely comfortable, and actually have comforters. I do not like bedspreads in a hotel or beds that only have a sheet and blanket. These comforters were nice. (2) The room was very clean and the amenities were nice. (3) Although on a busy street and in an active neighborhood, the hotel was quiet. (4) The continental breakfast has better coffee than we have had at other hotels with similar ratings. The Negatives: (1) We checked in late on a Friday night and were very thirsty after our long trip. The first thing that went wrong was the ice machine was not working and there was no ice. The on-site manager did not resolve the problem when we reported it and said that the ice was probably out and that he would get back to us. He neve got back to us, and there was no ice the next morning. (2) We were not able to log onto wifi because there is a step in the process that we were not told about (after choosing the Canogahotel wifi, you need to actually click on a website in order for the wifi to connect). (3) The third thing was that our air conditioner had a very loud rattle in it, which was disruptive. I reported it the next day and was told that the hotel is waiting for business to slow down before the new air conditioning units, which are on site, will be installed. Because of this, the unit in our room was not looked at and fixed when we put in a maintenance request. We had to deal with the rattle the next night. (4) The continental breakfast is ok if a high carb breakfast is what you are looking for. The breakfast room is small, and during high volume times, people were eating on the curb outside the lobby. Perhaps some tables and chairs could be put outside for additional seating. Although the continental breakfast is included in the price, we prefer to eat at Nat's West on Topanga Canyon Road where high protein is their signature. I would probably not stay at this location in the future, but would instead try the remodelled Motel 6 next door (which also has a pool) if I am looking for a 2 star hotel in this area. If a true 2-1/2 star hotel is what I am looking for, I would probably stay at the Holiday Inn Express and pay a little more.…
