Just an absolutely lovely stay in Studio City! This motel is in the absolute perfect location! It is about a ten minute walk to Universal Studios, a 5 minute walk to the grocery, and about a 30 second walk to 3 restaurants, a 7-11, liquor store, and dispensary!! :-) I am so glad I picked this place. I remember when I lived in the area this place was not great. The new management has done an amazing job! The rooms are well decorated and very clean! In addition, the staff is awesome and very attentive. I will be coming back here the next time I am in town!

We booked the Showtime Motel for our trip to Universal Studios, which we’d been planning for a few months. We booked ahead of time and were excited for our stay. Sadly, we came down with Type A flu the day we were supposed to arrive. I was worried about the cancellation fees, but we also weren’t going to travel and risk exposing the flu to others (plus we weren’t in travel shape). The Showtime Motel was extremely gracious and worked with us. We were so grateful that they accommodated us and helped us! It was already awful enough being horribly sick with the flu, so their help was really appreciated. Can’t wait to stay there when we (finally) head up to Universal Studios. Thank you, Showtime Motel!

I booked Showtime Motel after reading that it had been remodeled but I really had no idea what to expect and was hoping for the best. The price was right considering the price of other hotels in the area. I travel quite a bit and can confirm that this is a nice place to stay. We stayed here for a trip to Universal Studios. Their were always the same two guys working at the motel, I don't remember their names, but they were both super friendly. Check in was easy, I was charged appropriately with no issues and was given a little tour of our room. Parking was tight, but good enough for our full sized truck. The room was newly remodeled and very clean, the bed was clean and comfortable. Mini fridge inside the room, small toiletries on the sink area, clean bathroom, and a small table. AC worked wonderfully. The only bummer was, the water didn't get very hot in the shower. They set up a little coffee and pastry section in the mornings near the check in window. Their are security cameras everywhere on the property, which is great. The neighborhood seamed safe and we had no issues using Lyft to go to and from. Several restaurants and bars within walking distance. A grocery store and Walgreen's is also nearby. Cost about 7 bucks from Showtime to Universal Studios using Lyft and about 11 bucks to use Lyft to Hollywood Blvd. You could probably walk to Universal if you were really motivated. I didn't take any pictures, but trust me, the room we stayed in looked like the recent pictures posted by the Motel. This is a great option for a place to stay, I'm glad we did.

Mrs. RML and myself found this gem for a last minute getaway to Universal Studios. We booked a single king room. Everything inside was spotless and new - new flooring, new bed, new bathroom, new TV, new AC unit, new furniture. Also, not advertised: new mini fridge. Manager was great - showed us how the funky LED lights worked, and was very welcoming and helpful. Nearby (2 blocks or less) 7-11, Cannabis dispensary, pharmacy, grocery, lots of restaurants. If there is anything to nitpick, it would be that there is no in-room phone. It's clear these folks take pride in their building. Would stay again.

I recently booked a room for a client and he was denied access to his room because my company booked the room. There was no attempt to rectify the situation, other than requesting cash payment. The Customer Service is terrible and the business practices are nonexistent. I repeat, do. It stay here, your money is better spent at an establishment that values its customers.
