Fodor's Review

The sprawling five-story hotel, a San Fernando Valley landmark, has an updated contemporary look. You can slip into sleek booths in the coffee shop now, though the same American classics are still on the menu, and breakfast is still a good value. The Olympic-size pool and patio with outdoor bar (summer only) remain, as do the extra-wide halls and high-ceilinged rooms. The adjacent event center is famed for its Hollywood connections. Inquire about hotel packages.

tourists or family best moderate hotel in L.A.

we live in the area & when friends visit from out of the country (or relatives) this is a great place to put them; reasonable price, clean, giant Olympic heated pool, self-service laundry room, cheap coffee shop & best of all guests can walk to shops (during the day) or walk to local restaurants SAFELY (at night) or take a 5 min. cab ride to one of the best sushi bars Sushi Katsu-Ya about 1.5 miles east of the Lodge! Be it in-laws, foreign guests

or their teenaged sons, everyone we have put here has LOVED the place. A fresh fare supermarket is directly across the street, so they can stock up on snacks/water, parking is free, terrific tourist excursion desk, Avis car rental & decent restaurant... but the black swans on their green (dyed) brook is the piece du resistance! They are about 2 miles from Universal Studios & run a free shuttle for guests.
