Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Inn Los Angeles
Stayed here Oct 4th as family in a "2 queen beds junior suite".
Generally place is clean and OK for the price but ....
Junior suite is just a decent size double room with a sink and microwave. I think of a suite as having a separate sitting area and this was not the case.
First room allocated was on the freeway side (noiser) and had a window that would not shut so asked for another room.
Allocated another room but this time next to some party people that kept us awake 1/2 the night. Walls are thin and staff confessed in the morning that our neighbors were "music people" who they thought might be noisy - gee thanks guys!
We got a 50% reduction on the room price but I'd have preferred the sleep myself.
Don't plan on walking if you stay here.
My husband & I went to LA for 4 nights and stayed at this hotel on Sunday, September 19th. We paid the manager special of $97/nt., the free parking and the free breakfast was really good -- which makes this an overall great rate. We drove to Universal, it seemed too far to walk (like 15-20mins), plus the hotel is on a busy street, and the area seems just OK, I wouldn't wanna' walk around there at night alone. The rooms were fine, had a fridge in the room, which was nice. The pool is small, and in a small cement room -- don't stay here just for the pool! I wished we would have spent the extra $50 bucks and stayed at the Sheraton that was much closer and looked really nice!
Lovely new rooms-convenient to Universal Studios
We stayed here for 3 nights on Sept 10-13th. I had pre-booked 2 of the nights and reserved a King, but the first night we stayed, we had only made the reservation a few days earlier, so there was only a double queen available. This room was huge, with a fridge, microwave, couch etc., but it faced the freeway, which was the quite noisy. The second 2 nights, we moved to our pre-booked King facing the back and it was lovely. Very large bed, comfortable room, very clean. The free breakfast was very satisfying and this hotel is a 15 min walk to Universal Studios. Good value for money-recommended.
Nice new hotel, all attractions in Hollywood are nearby. Universal city is a walk away. Hotel is brand new, staff are polite, nice and quiet area.

Holiday Inn Express Cahuenga is a Jewel.
This Hotel was a great find. Comfortable, roomy, spotless! It is immaculate. We did not have prior reservations, but the very friendly helpful staff did all they could to help us stay for more nights. This Hotel was so very nice, we cancelled our plans to visit another city. The rooms, including the bathrooms were large. The rates were good for such top notch quality. Even with having to change rooms, day to day (We didn't have prior reservations) every one was very clean. The beds were so comfortable! We had spent some previous nights at a different hotel, and our backs were hurting. It was a real theraputic rejuvenation for our backs when we found this hotel. We slept very well. It was quiet. There is a washer and dryer nearby. There is also a free Continental breakfast, (which was better than most) that was replenished, kept cleaned and looked after nicely by the staff. The parking is free and nice.
I was amazed at the rominess we had for an "Express"! It is also very new. The staff, especially the Manager were flawless. I must say, this is the very best Hotel we EVER stayed at. Highest compliments to the staff at Holiday Inn Expresss Cuhuenga. We look forward to staying here again!
I stayed at this hotel based on other reviews and I was not disappointed. The room I had was very clean and looked fairly new. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the hotel has free parking. If you are going to Universal Studios, then it's in a great location. It's only about a 15 min walk from the hotel. This will save you $6 -10 dollars on parking at the park. If you are looking for places to eat within walking distance, then you should try the "California Café" it's about a couple of min down the street. This place has excellent Italian food, but it's a little on the pricey side. Also, just outside of Universal Studios is "City Walk" where you can find all the restaurants and shops that you may need. The only bad thing I have to say about this hotel is that the pool is a joke. It's about the size of hot tube and it's in a terrible location; right next to the underground parking lot. Not much of a view. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would stay here again.
Stayed here 2 nights after new years. Good location for those going to Universal, would've been better if they had some sort of shuttle going there. The walls seem a bit thin b/c we were able to hear the couple next door :) but other than that it was a good stay.
Location, Location, Location
This hotel had a perfect location found right off the highway, only a few minutes away from Universal Studio and minutes away from Hollywood Blvd. The rooms have been renovated with a fridge, microwave and a bar sink and are spacious and very clean. The laundry room is conveniently located on the second floor, however, the dining area for the free continental breakfast was extremly small (just off to the side in the lobby) and we ended up taking the breakfast up to our room. Overall, this hotel was an excellent find in Hollywood with free parking.
This is a very new property. It is very clean. It is in a good location. Hollywood and Universal Studios is nearby. You need a rental car to get around. The staff was very friendly. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast buffet was delicious. There aren't any restaurants close by, so eat before you check in. I would recommend this hotel because of location and price.
Great Find, fabulous location, good value
Our family (2 adults 2 kids) recently spent 3 nights at this hotel in North Hollywood and would highly recommend it. The room was clean and spacious with a balcony. Good security all around. Amenities included a lovely heated pool adjacent to a courtyard, and a reasonable restaurant where kids eat free. The shuttle to Universal Studios was quick and easily accessed. Best of all, this hotel is located just off the freeway, minutes from the studios and from Hollywood, and can serve as a great base to explore all of the westside. Excellent value.

... this hike wasn’t a doozy but this kid decided it would be a good idea to skateboard down this windy road (take a moment to make sure you read that as windy like winding not windy as the weather; did you ever notice that the two were spelt the same- very strange). Anyways this bro flew by us on his skateboard and we were all actually really impressed- this guy clearly knew what he was doing. Until a few seconds later as he went around the corner we ...
... flight and I'm pooped however driving down a hill into the valley of Hollywood and seeing the Hollywood sign made it all worth it. It's a very long way away and quite small from where we can see it but wow! I'm pretty amazed I've seen it up front. Explored Hollywood Blvd. This place is incredible. Walked the boulevard and saw all the stars, had a beer in an American pub, was an audience ...
... the outlet, and had to wait about an hour for it to open - as it seems that things don't really open until 11-12 on a Sunday in LA. The only interesting thing that occurred during the walk was us inadvertently getting on American TV - on account of one of the local News programs doing a taping for their bulletin. It seems that someone was killed on Hollywood Boulevard the night before - after an altercation on the road. So - if you happened to be watching CBS ...
... bike ride today, we walked off our healthier meal back along the pier & over the bridge looking down at Route 66, marking the end of our road journey, It was getting dark quickly, so back to the bikes putting on our lights and changing into dress style no.3 to be worn now as a jacket to keep off the sea breeze. Hitting the cycle path hard homeward bound, It was far less busy now. Happily able to amble along for a bit, taking in a rest and water stop half way down on ...
They're not wrong you know. Everything is MASSIVE here. I seem to have spent the last couple of days just walking around saying "Serge! have you SEEN the size of this?!" and "Jinny, just look, LOOK at that bottle of wine!" It's like living in 'Honey I Shrunk The Kids'. But that was one of my favourite films as a kid so I'm pretty golden right now. As long as the insects don't turn out to be ten foot high that is.
The first few days here were ...
