Best Western Canoga Park Motor Inn

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We checked in late, around 10 pm LA time and we were greeted by Dee at the front desk. She was wonderful, knew just how to get us into the room quickly and updated us on breakfast and where things were. We were exhausted. The room was spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. We were on the first floor and it wasn’t noisy at that time of night so we slept fine. Street noise was minimal, just the sound of cars in the rain as we had horrible weather. The next morning we were greeted by Rado who was really helpful in getting us to the Santa Monica Pier to tour around, perfect place he said for teens and he was right. I thought the location of this hotel was good, not too far from the airport and in a good location with nail salons, places to eat and a CVS and a shopping center not too far away. We were happy with our stay and I do recommend it to singles, families and couples.

The newly renovated rooms are great. The breakfast is the best I've had. Overall the value is excellent.

Only complaint would be the parking. The hotel shares their lot with a bowling alley that is steps away from the hotel. So the spots in front of the hotel were all taken. We did find a spot around the corner, but would have felt better parking in front.

We were very impressed by this hotel. It has clearly been moderately updated, new paint and decor, somewhat recently. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast available to patrons was impressive, eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy as well as a wide selection of cereals, breads and drinks.

Ground floor of hotel was under renovation, so a bit dusty. Room was clean and spacious, befitting a Best Western. In-room air conditioning unit was a bit loud. Overall, good value. Located right next to a bowling alley, which is good for visitors looking for some fun, but I would prefer a less frequented area.

The hotel was super clean nice friendly staff They offered breakfast it was clean and they have everything you need it for breakfast parking free and I check in late at 4 am so they nicely let me stay until 12 for check out

Good Waffles. Great swimming in the monring. Nice Front Deskstaff. Lots of potential charges for stuff like water bottles and lobby coffee. but GREAT FREE BREAKFAST in the morning!!!

The stay was good overall. We stayed just passing through

Good for family trip, little bit far from theme parks and have a casino or bowl next to it, not good for child.

Halfway decent for the valley as far as the room its self. Staff could use a little more friendly attitude. Seemed very unhappy with there job. Seems they only care about the paycheck they get and not making the customer feel welcome. Pools small n jacuzzi not that great. Area sucked. Parking sucks All though i would stay here again in a pinch situation. Its a shame the valley is so over priced for what u get. But remodeled somewhat and decent.

The hotel room is very comfy and clean. This helped us to recharge our body before continuing our journey up to San Fransico. Breakfast is awesome with a good range of variety. Overall environment is peaceful. Only gripe is that bottled mineral water is charged at usd1.25 each. Feel that it should be provided complimentary. Other than that, good place to hang out!

The good: The room was clean, a nice layout for breakfast, the bed was comfortable, a nice size TV, Fridge, and coffee maker. The Bad: it had WiFi but only being 50 ft from the front desk I expected a better connection (it was very weak). There was no light switch near the entry so I had to search for one that actually turned on a light. The table and chairs were very unstable and wobbled when used. Overall: I was there only one night and got a well needed nights rest, but bring ear plugs because the traffic noise is constant.

The restaurant has a Greek chef who makes excellent food, for example the pan fried snapper and california omelette. Has a fairly large outdoor pool, and the complimentary breakfast is very good. Room was spotless. A little dated but being upgraded.

This was a clean, pleasant hotel for the relatively inexpensive price. The family diner next door served very good food with low prices.

Staff was helpful, breakfast was nice, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, price was fair.

The rooms are nice and clean, staff is friendly, room price is ok. I like this hotel because it's only a short distance from different places I like to go. The only negative is the area where the hotel is located. Kinda rough looking.

this is an unusually friendly, comfortable little hotel close to lots of Santa Monica valley stuff. It is very well run and feels like a family owned business. The accomodations arent fancy, and it doesnt look like much from the outside, but its really quite a great value. I would stay here again!

Staff is friendly enough but not very helpful when a bag was lost. Nearest place to eat is bowling alley 30 feet away (food not bad in the cafe and the help there is great). Hotel is short drive to Getty Center.

nice stop on way down to LA. Very friendly...nice accommodations

The stay was great. It was conveniently located and near our family that we visited. Our only regret was that we didn't get up early enough to make it to the breakfast. A special thanks to the great staff there. The gentlemen who checked us in (he was perky even after midnight!) and out were very personable and helpful!
