Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Annette33 Good selection on breakfast foods
As a caregiver for my 90 year-old father, we needed either two rooms or a room with separate beds. Two queen sized beds for the space, was a bit cramped - not impossible, just cramped.
It was less expensive than two separate rooms since I have to be able to care for my father. However, perhaps a bed and a sofa sleeper would have been a better space saver, enabling us to view television easily while sitting on a sofa.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Patmac Budget friendly with Bonus Points
Seeking a cheaper alternative to more costly hotels in Hollywood, we chose this hotel to take advantage of the 5,000 Bonus Points offer. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful, offering several recommendations for what to see and do in the area. Our room was clean and relatively quiet. The double-queen beds were pretty comfortable, and we slept well. The free Wi-Fi was relatively fast and reliable. Free off-street parking was a big bonus, too, especially in this location. However, the bathroom had cleanliness issues, with a smelly floor drain which allowed a few insects into the room. The free breakfast bar had a variety of hot and cold choices, but the small room was very crowded, forcing us to eat in our room. Although the front desk clerk acknowledged our Gold Elite IHG Rewards Club membership status, we had to wait several days to receive all of our Rewards Points. That said, staying here saved us a lot of money, which we spent enjoying area attractions.

The hotel stay was fair. Breakfast is over at 9:30, so getting up early is important.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TSG27 Overall Great Stay
This was an extremely clean, friendly and convenient hotel for our needs. We felt comfortable and safe. The hotel staff was very accommodating and ready to please. The breakfast was one of the best I seen. No dried out pastries, but nice muffins and the wonderful warm cinnamon rolls. Yummo! I will definitely book at this location again when we return to the area, which we will be doing to visit family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Friendly
People at the desk and one person in the parking area were friendly and helpful. Parking was indoors, and a little more tight than outdoors. I got some damage to my car, after hitting a support. My inattentiveness was the culprit, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SuzyQ64 Excellent overall
Very clean, updated and new rooms. AC worked great and tv channel selection was awesome. My only disappointment was at breakfast. When we got down to the dining area, most of the food selection was gone and we had to wait over 20 minutes for someone to come and replace the food bins. Once that was done, the food was great. No one emptied the trash, either, so throwing away our paper plates, etc. was a challenge. Overall - it would not deter me from coming back to this hotel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great stay!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soccerboys Excellent Staff
This is a small hotel but once you are inside you will find that it is clean and neat. However, the best thing is the great customer service. Damon is attentive and great to work with and Allie has excellent customer service skills.
On thing worth mentioning if you have kids...the pool is very small. It's nicely heated which makes it more of a large Jacuzzi. It turned out ok for us because we were the only ones using it but may be a problem for more than one group at a time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DEB333 Not bad at all
Other than a communication mishap, pretty solid week. Being from the Midwest, not sure why sausage gravy is not available like other locations of this chain, but maybe it is a California thing or simply demand. The cinnamon rolls are certainly good though.
Fairly easy to find and get in and out of. Location seems good for where I am working.
I would certainly give it a try if you like the Holiday Inn Express chain of hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeabeeMCPO Convenient Location; Challenged Area
Had two rooms, was a nice stay but was a property that was a B+. When I got to my room there was a maintenance man finishing up some work...a bit awkward. Desk Staff made a great dinner reservation just down the street which worked out great. A fine british style establishment. Above average HIE breakfast. Overall I would stay here again and would recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NancyB52 Was nice until something went missing
I've been here before as the location is very close to where I work when in the area. Everything was great, room, staff, cleanliness, until I discovered that I left a pair of jeans in my room. Realized it a couple of days later and immediately called the hotel. There is no place else they could be. After a quick pause when I called they said nothing was found. It is impossible that they were not in the closet or somewhere in the room as I wore them on the plan into the area. So, my review is that all was well until I lost some clothing. Sigh....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jkrrer Great staff!
I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express almost every weekend for over a year now, & the clean, comfortable rooms & service has been consistently great. What an awesome group of people you have at this location...Ally, Kashi, Sarah, Patrick, Damon, Archie, & Matt are the employees I've gotten to know, & have made me feel like a part of their family...which is very comforting to me since I have to be away from my family every weekend due to work. You can be proud of your entire staff at the Woodland Hills location!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chaargers Very good Experience
I was upgraded to a suite on my arrival. I asked for a room with a refrigerator, and the suite had 2 refrigerators!
The staff was extremely pleasant and friendly.
The only negative is the lights in the exercise room would turn off unexpectedly while I was on the treadmill. They would turn back on after a few minutes, but I would be in complete darkness except for the light from the television.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LCHnSF Not very handicap assessable
I am on crutches and booked this hotel as it is handicap assessable. I have to say I am disappointed and if this is what handicapped people have to deal with I am glad my condition is only temporary.
1st the Handicapped room is 1/2 way down the hall, you would think it would be closer to the elevator.
2nd. The lights to the bathroom are outside of the bathroom, and when you open the door it blocks the light switch. Also the lights to the room are by the front door meaning a return trip to the door to turn the lights off. Would rather see a light switch assessable to the bed.
3rd. There is a low tub and a bench to place in it. The bench is across the room and while on crutches it is difficult to move the bench into the tub. Not only that when they cleaned the room they took the bench out of the tub so I had to struggle to get it back in again.
So much for handicap assessable.
The walls are also paper this so you can hear what is going on next door as well as in the hall.
On the plus side the staff was very helpful at the buffet every morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BCPC Not What it Once Was
We have been regular guests at this Holiday Inn Express for many years. Recently, it maintenance has not been what it should be. On this four-day visit, they were removing wall paper in the hallway, and repainting. It was noisy and had a very bad odor.
To compound this, after our second night, the small coat closet shelf and hanger-rod broke out of the wall and fell to the floor. This dumped all of our clothes onto the floor partially covering them with drywall powder.
The Shelf and hanger bar were simply secured into drywall, not into any structural support. Extremely poor workmanship.
We were given a different room for the remainder of our stay.
We will likely look for an alternative on our next visit to this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ted777 Convenient and Practical
I received complimentary bottled water upon check-in. I stayed in the two-room suite, which is on the second floor. The larger room has the king bed, sofa bed, coffee table, sitting chair with ottoman, table with chairs, wet bar with sink (I think), refrigerator, and microwave. There was a large flat-screen TV with HDTV channels and another refrigerator in the cabinet under the TV. The bathroom was large. The main room also had a wooden door leading to a terrace, but the door was locked for security reasons. The other bedroom had a smaller king bed, sitting chair, and large flat-screen TV but no refrigerator in the cabinet under that TV (because three refrigerators would be excessive). The other bedroom also had a window that you could open all the way (I think). Both bedrooms had a nice simple environmental control system. I liked the flexible cancellation policy and the availability of bonus point packages. I left before the free breakfast in the lobby in order to beat the rush hour traffic. The hotel is next to a Smart and Final (convenient) and The Habit (hamburger joint). While there is a French restaurant across the street and an Italian restaurant right down the street, I decided to be frugal and just have a bacon char burger at The Habit and grab some things at Smart and Final. There is ample underground parking, which is complimentary for hotel guests.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve130 Nice Place
This place was great to stay. The room was big and very comfortable. The front desk was nice and answered my questions about where places are located and called a taxi when I needed it. The breakfast was probably the one thing that needs improvement. The eggs were dry and the omelet with cheese was kind of hard. The juices were also very watery. Overall the really enjoyed this stay and would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awasi Comfortable and Safe atmosphere
I had such an amazing time here. We came here for a wedding from San Jose, California. This hotel is super secured and safe. The breakfast in the morning is pretty good as well. Their customer service is pretty good. The hotel room is very comfortable and nice. This hotel is pretty close to the freeway and walking distance to important shops (ie. RITE AID 24 hours, Habit burger, Wendy's, Smart and Final). This hotel is 30 minutes from the LAX airport and 20 minutes from Venice beach. The only downside is the elevator that requires a key to get up and sometimes it does not function. All in all, I am really impressed with this hotel and would HIGHLY recommend it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Susa14 Bad service
The people from front desk are rude. I went to see the breakfast the food was horrible. The woman from that kitchen never smile. In our room we asked for a microwave they said at 7:45 you will get it. At 8:30 we call to ask what happened with it. At 8:35 we got a bad microwave it wasn't working anyways we paid 10 dollars for that microwave. The housekeeper people are kind of shy but they are nice.

Stayed here Christmas day after visiting relatives. The king bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. The bathroom was quite large for a moderate priced hotel. Did I mention the price was right? Plenty of light in the room which helped because my husband had to prepare for court the next day. The breakfast was typical for this type of hotel. No better or worse. Parking was convenient below hotel. All in all a very good stay.
