We stayed here last year and didn't plan to come back, but a sudden change of plans forced us to find something with a vacancy at the last minute.

Our "king suite" was not really a suite. The definition of a suite is multiple (at least two!) connected rooms. Look it up. This is just an extra-large room. Nothing wrong with a large room, and that's fine with us, but calling it a suite is incorrect and could be problematic for someone who actually needs a suite.

Fortunately, the room was well furnished and the bed was comfortable. However, sleep was an issue because we could not use the fan for white noise. There is no way to make it stay on, so it goes on and off during the night, so it can't really be used to block out things like the loud TV in the next room or noises from outside. The dumpsters outside were serviced by a loud beepy truck at 6:30 am.

We appreciate having breakfast included, but it was just sad here. Very poorly managed. The second morning, we were there at 8:45 (breakfast is supposed to last until 9:30). They were completely out of milk cartons and yogurt, and very low on other items. Better planning is needed.

Bathroom was big enough and the shower worked, but the floor was dangerously slippery. Yes, I used the mat provided, but just casually setting one slightly damp foot down on the floor next to the mat caused a serious slip. Textured tile would be safer. The bathroom door seemed to be hung badly, made a horrible noise whenever the door opened or closed. (Room 327, in case management wants to fix it.)

Overall, this hotel could use some updating.

Room tip: Try even-numbered rooms to avoid the side with pool and dumpster.

They claim to offer the lowest price available, but the IHG central service was rude in contradicting that claim. I contacted the manager --he and Shania seem to be the two professionals on the staff-- and he attempted to treat me like a Priority Club member, which I am, instead of an annoying potential guest, as they had at the IHG central office.

Would I stay here again? Yes, because it's close to my Woodland Hills reason for travel. But several things to note: 1) The front desk people are full of levity, and this appeals to many guests. 2) Attempts to up the healthy offerings at breakfast are as weak here as they are at other HIE properties: They were out of walnuts two of the three days, the one day with walnuts included only some ground walnuts, there were no raisins the third day. There was no shortage of other breakfast offerings. Those calorie-filled signature cinnamon rolls were always available. (Honestly, HIE Corporate, do your guests really accept them as a no-exceptions goodie, in spite of the unhealthiness?) 3) The breakfast attendant walked away from her phone immediately whenever a guest asked a question, or for a re-supply of something. 4) The property, itself, seems old and musty. 5) As another guest mentioned, guest rooms lack microwaves.

Room tip: Ask to be near, but not next to, the elevator.

When I travel, I normally don't stay at Holiday Inns because I normally travel solo and I look for more budget-minded accommodations. But in some locales, Holiday Inns are competitively priced with other hotels. Such is the case in the last two locations where I stayed while traveling along the coast of California. My stays at both the La Jolla and Woodland Hills Holiday Inn Express has been exceptional. What stands out the most about my experiences is the outstanding customer service compared to other budget hotel chains. Both times at both hotels the front desk personnel went out of their way to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I stayed at one of the suites instead of the regular rooms as the regular rooms do not have microwaves. My suite was very large and very clean and the hot breakfast was very good.

I am a IHG gold stars traveler so I stay in many Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Expresses. This must be among the worst I have stayed in. It has the feel of a bad roadside motel.

Positives - Large room and bathroom, good breakfast, good internet.

Negatives - Water in the shower takes 5-7 minutes to get warm, in the sink 3-5 minute. The closet does not have a door, Despite having a reservation and arriving in the afternoon the only room clean and available was on the first floor. these rooms all have external doors which makes it easy for anyone to walk up to. The might front desk person was missing when I went to ask a question and returned in 5 minutes. After answering my question he went outside to smoke and was there another 5 minutes at least. I guess the only working staff member gets long breaks.

I will never stay at this hotel again. I do not care if I have to drive an extra 30 minutes there are many other better options in and around Woodland Hills.

Room tip: Try anything but first floor.

Good location to get back and forth from my customer without dealing with LA freeways. Super attentive front desk staff. Perfect breakfast. Rooms clean and recently updated. Only drawbacks were the parking. Pretty much nothing upstairs but always found a spot underground. Also my room had a birds eye view of the Wendy’s drive through. Better than cable and very entertaining! And the garbage truck empties the dumpster under my window at 6:18am every morning so no need for an alarm! Still a great spot and pretty much what you get for a city hotel. I liked it. Would go back.
