Blechhhhh Best western "plus" is a stretch. Super tiny uninspiring lobby. Room looks in need of updating. Even the kids said "we better wear socks in here!" Tv is great- nice big clear picture with lots of Channels. Clock radio iPod dock (for iPhone/iPod 4 only) was not functional. If you have more than 2 devices total, forget it. We had to unplug the microwave to find space to plug in for 3 devices. Serious lack of outlets in here. Shower pressure very low, despite the several settings. Needed extra pillow and blanket- front desk said to come get them, so we walked down at 10 PM only to be told "we are out" Really poor customer service. Expected MUCH more for a Plus property, especially a Plus property demanding $200+/night. This place is MAYBE a $139/night. Won't stay here again, which is too bad because it's in a good location.
I really like the position of this hotel, walking distance to work. For years, it has been one of the least expensive hotels in the area, so the convenience, 'simple-ness', and price made it the best hotel to use. Over the last year, the hotel has improved very marginally -- the breakfast is a little better, the beds are a little nicer, but the price has gone up so dramatically I won't be staying there in the future.
We stayed in the 2 BR suite, and it was fabulous! 3 Queen beds in all. Another Queen could have easily fit in the space between the dining table and the living area. Sink, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the kitchen. Large TVs in the living room and each bedroom. Close to plenty of food options, and 3 blocks from Starbucks. Situated on the backside of Universal Studios, so less than a 10 minute drive. Free underground parking. Couldn't be better! This is now the standard from which all other hotels will be judged. We will ALWAYS look for a Best Western Plus when we travel.
Stayed two nights. First night was fine - everything went well. Second night I watched a movie and went to bed a little after midnight. Around 1 AM a group of young people that were part of a tour group came back to the hotel after a night out and made a tremendous amount of noise. Laughing, running, playing music, etc. This went on for a couple hours. I tried to call the front desk and the phone didn't work, fortunately, since I was in a suite it had a second phone. After calling the noise continued until after 3 AM. At 6 AM somebody in the group started playing music real loud. Worst night in a hotel in years - worst nigh at a Best Western ever!
First, I'm a Diamond Member of BW. Second, let's start on what's good. Parking is complimentary and the place is clean. Now the not-so-good. The alarm clock was 7-8 hours off without the ability to change it. No plugs in lamps by bed. Had to move out nightstand and get in behind for outlet. Got up to make coffee. Coffeepot plug runs through countertop and down behind fridge -- was unplugged! Had to move fridge to plug it in -- not a 5am friendly chore. If outlets are important to you, avoid this place.
We visited California and stayed at the BW Média center in Burbank for 4 nights. We chose a hotel that was close to the Warner Brothers studio since we had tickets to the Ellen show. The location was perfect for our needs. The hotel was clean, comfortable and a very safe location. We Ubered to Hollywood as needed (very short 15 min drive). Breakfast was typical - bacon, eggs, cereal etc. I will definitely stay at the Best Western when/ if I get tickets to the Ellen show in the future.
The staff is amazing!!! There was a slight hiccup with a coffee request but nothing that would stop me from staying at this property. It was a P&P issue and had nothing to do with the staff, my stay, or the appearance or function of this property.
We had lots of fun when we stayed at this hotel because Warner Brothes is just walking distance to the hotel. Rooms are spacious, clean, near some restaurants especially couple of minutes drive to Portosand definitely recommend this hotel.
My mom, sister, and I stayed here for one night while spending the weekend in LA for mom's birthday. The check in and check out processes were very quick and easy. Breakfast was standard - nothing spectacular. The hotel is very centrally located to both Universal Studios and the Warner Brothers studios, making it super ideal for our purposes. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The room itself was huge. The bedroom had a king sized bed, couch, and huge bathroom; the "living" area had a small bar counter with microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, and pull out couch. Overall, a great stay and good quality. We would definitely stay again.
This is our second time we have stayed here and both times we were very happy with the service and our room. It is located within minutes of Universal Studios but is far enough away to be in a quiet, peaceful area. Breakfast was nice too!
