    « Reasonably Priced for Area »

    I was hesitant to book at this location because property is located on Ventura Blvd--a very busy place day and night. I was pleasantly surprised that we heard absolutely no street noise when inside our room. The room is much more reasonably priced than other hotels in an area that can be very pricey. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good, however the eating area is extremely limited. Pet peeve--they didn't have butter, only margarine--yuck! We would absolutely return!

    « A good place to stay »

    Our family stayed three nights in two rooms. The rooms were clean and well maintained. It took a few minutes to find the pool and hot tub since you need to go up a flight of stairs to reach it on the hillside behind the Inn. Parking is sometimes limited in the evening, but extra spaces are available in the lot to the west. Our room had all the amenities we needed, especially wi-fi and a frig. The TV has a large selection of channels. The kids enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was good, but the breakfast room was cramped and could have been designed to use the available space better. The staff was friendly.

    « Fine »

    Tamed for five days whilst at a conference nearby. Rooms were clean and quiet, with a comfy bed. More like a motel than a hotel. Breakfast was uninspiring, but perfectly acceptable if you just need a base to stay. Reception staff were very helpful.

    « West coast tour »

    Had an overnight stay here on the way to la from Santa Barbara lovely clean hotel friendly staff free continental breakfast only downside as most hotels was the pillows are to big lots of shops and restaurants nearby

    « Great Hotel...Hope to God that you don't leave anything behind at the hotel after your stay »

    I stayed at the Best Western Inn Woodland Hills from Oct 8-15 2016, the hotel is so lovely, the design of it makes it look old Spanish it has that charm to it. The Rooms are great, we stayed in 119 and it was very spacious for 2 of us. We had a fridge and a microwave and the beds are so comfy. Everything that was advertised was included. The breakfast had a great selection of food and the staff working the kitchen were so helpful and lovely. Beverly was always on her feet ready to help when needed. The Front desk staff could be a little friendlier. The wifi was great never had an issue and the pool and hot tub (spa as they call it) was fantastic and totally relaxing. The location of the hotel was's right on Ventura Blvd. close to everything, shops, grocery stores, restaurants and even the Transit was easy to get to. The only issue I had and am still having is that I left my very expensive tooth brush charger in the room and didn't notice until the next day. I called the hotel right away and spoke to Roger who was checking on the lost and found list and was to call me back. Well 2 days came and went and no call back...I called again on Tuesday and spoke to Joe and was to have Jose call me when he arrived back at the office the next day and no phone call. I finally called again on Friday the 21st of Oct after being home a week and the issue they were having was if the US Postal Service delivered to Canada Toronto to be exact. I offered to pay for FedEx and Joe said that it was a liability to go to the FedEx store in case he got into an accident. Well then how do you send recovered items back their owners in Canada. As of right now at 4:16pm Eastern Standard Time I'm still waiting for Jose to return my call. I asked for his supervisor and was directed to the Owner's voice mail not even a name the young lady at the front desk could offer me. I just warn you!!...don't forget or leave any personal items in your room or at the hotel if you don't want them back and especially if you live in Canada.

    « Great spot »

    My family really enjoyed this place. It was quiet and reasonable. Breakfast in the morning was basic but good and the staff was very nice too. Never know what you may get with a best western but this one was great.

    « Quick overnight trip »

    Hubby and I went to a concert and didn't want to drive the 2+ hours home, so we were pleased to find a Best Western nearby. Good location - convenient for groceries, restaurants and liquor store, all within walking distance. Even though it is on the main drag, the room was quiet - didn't hear street noise. Very nice room, though had a smell to it; can't figure out what. Also very pleased to know that although I booked through Expedia, they gave me point on my Best Western rewards card too. Not all do, so this was a nice surprise. If you park after 10:30pm-ish, the lot tends to fill up, so you have to go to the front desk and they tell you to park in the city lot across the street and they pay the fee. Easy!

    « Somewhat outdated »

    This hotel is on a busy road. A really really busy road. As soon as you step out of your room, the sound of cars is everywhere. However, the room itself was pretty much quite. But, I would rather stay in a hotel with a less crowded environment. The front staff was nice at check-inn and check-out and the sleep quality was fine. So, as long as you don't mind the busy roads surrounding it, you're fine.

    « Nice hotel »

    The room was clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. Free continental breakfast and wi-fi. There is no elevator, so you must climb a flight of stairs to some rooms and the air conditioner is noisy. Staff was super friendly. Parking was free. The hotel backs up to private residents, so don't leave curtains open.

    « Consistently good value »

    We have stayed here three times. Great value for money, great staff, clean, quiet accommodations, all local amenities, and an easy drive to downtown LA, Hollywood, Malibu, etc.You will not be disappointed.

    « Surprisingly Quiet »

    I spent last Saturday night at this hotel while in town for a family event. I was in room #200, a corner room with two large windows facing Ventura Blvd. and the entrance into the hotel parking lot. I expected the traffic noise to keep me awake, but I didn't hear a thing. The room was quite large with a king sized bed, loveseat, a refrigerator and a microwave. The bathroom was nice sized and the weather pressure was excellent. I didn't have breakfast, so I can't offer an opinion on that. I noticed there were many places to eat nearby. I was excited to see a Western Bagel across the street. I bought some to take home with me.

    « clean, quiet enough, easy walk to meals »

    I chose this to be near an early morning business meeting. It cost a little less than the hotels near the Warner Center and mall. The front desk people were friendly and honored my request for a first-floor room. There are no interior halls and no elevator, and I didn't want to lug my suitcase up a flight of outdoor steps. The room was quiet, clean, and standardly pleasant. Delighted to have a semi-wood floor rather than carpeting. Also nice to have HBO and on-demand HBO. Air-conditioning was blessedly cool during a very hot spell, though a bit noisy. Wi-fi worked flawlessly. There is very easy access to the 101 via Topanga Canyon Blvd. Breakfast room is on the small side but the waffles, tea, and other offerings do the job. Location is very convenient as you can walk to several reasonably priced restaurants including sushi, American pub food, Persian, a steakhouse and others. After eating at the oddball Mazar Mediterranean, which is on the same side of Ventura Blvd, I discovered a Thai place in the strip mall opposite. It's called something like Anthara and is hidden away in the back at the far end, as far away as you can get from the Rite-Aid. It looked nice and I'd eat there next time. Anyhow, Best Western was fine. I guess they get away with relatively high prices because (a) L.A. area ain't cheap and (b) there seemed to be a lot of business travelers when I was there on a Monday-Weds.

    « Great Stay »

    Henry and his staff took very good care of us. We needed to check in early and they made it happen with little notice. The room was completely renovated and very clean and it was very conveniently located. We would stay there again.

    « Excellent Value for location, price, and accomodations »

    Certainly is an older place, but the rooms are very clean, price is okay, and everything is convenient. The breakfast area is small, but the attentive staff helps enjoy the meal, and everyone including guests are friendly. Beds are excellent, wifi is good. If you want a bigger breakfast , there are good restaurants across the street or down the block. . Staff is friendly. If you want large lobbies and luxurious looking big Vegas rooms., this is not the place. It is an excellent place if want a good place to stay, business or pleasure.for single, couples, or family.

    « Suited our needs »

    This is an average Best Western hotel. The room was clean, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. We chose this location because it was near a lot of different restaurants and stores and had easy freeway access. The only thing bringing my rating down is the complimentary breakfast which is rudimentary at best. Would be nice to have some protein and better variety of fruit.

    « Business visit for activity in Calabasas »

    I was looking for a hotel close to the hi-tech zone in nearby Calabasas. The advantages of the Best Western were: 1. Good breakfast, pancakes is big plus 2. Close to freeway 3. Price better than in comparative hotel in Calabasas, so I stayed within my travel budget 4. Across the street from a supermarket and a number of restorants 5. Rooms equipped with microwave and refrigirator. 6. Good wi-fi coverage 7. Parking can be problematic in late night, but hotel will pay for the city parking nearby. 8. Attitude of the stuff is very positive and friendly One small negative: The laundry is not free of charge for the guests and operates on cash only. It was also not simple to get charge on my room, so I quit trying to do laundry in the hotel.

    « Seems good but employee .... »

    With my family I arrived at 9:32am, 2' later than that closing, (considering that all over the USA hotels closed at 10:00-10:30) and we welcome with, "you can eat only what remain". We asked some fruit but he already take out everything. A part some bread and marmalade. He said "only what you can see on the table". Very Bad!!!

    « Great Hotel and Great Room »

    Quite Happy I was, Quite Happy. I had a very late check in and the staff was quite pleasant, even in the wee hours. There was exactly one parking place left and that suited me fine. Off to sleep and awaken late, I hoped. Well Upon arising I check out the room in detail and found it was very well appointed. Including, a nice computer chair, excellent flooring, beautiful crown moldings, clean, clean clean, way too many channels to make any choices, plugs up the wall and net up the wall too! and the best - a very comfy bed. Thanks!

    « Good choice for visiting LA »

    I chose this hotel mainly because its location and price. Being close to the Malibu area, it's a great hotel for the price. The room was modern and clean, though there were minor (cigarette?) holes in the blanket. The free breakfast wasn't good, though - very limited choices. But there's chain coffee shops right across the street from the hotel. Recommend this hotel if you are going to west LA.

    « Barely OK »

    To call this an Inn is deceptive. This is a 2 story facility, no elevator. So if you can't do stairs don't stay here. The saying "if you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig" fits this establishment. Cheap fake wood floors in the rooms, bedding and blankets felt like they were 20 years old. After staying in La Mesa and here it didn't even seem like the hotels were owned by the same company. Door had a gap at the bottom so smells and noises drifted in. Could only charge phones in lamp plug in when the light were on and only one worked. Cleaning services were pretty non existent-all they did was make the bed. Did not get clean bedding. I left the iron out to cool and it wasn't put away. This wasn't the cheapest room in the area. Will not stay here again.

    « Great location and hotel »

    We stayed here after researching numerous areas in LA. The hotel was perfect for our day trips to Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica and downtown. Staff were nice and the room and bathroom were very clean! The area has a lot to offer for eating options, as well as easy access to highways and Topanga Canyon (to get to the coast). All we could ask for.

    « floors dirty »

    My daughter and I stayed here our last night of a 11 night vacation to California. The hotel was nice, we didn't get to the pool. The breakfast was good. We checked in early and left our things in the room, it was nice and looked clean. We went for a hike and came back late at night with a pizza and found ants crawling on the counter by the sink. The wood floor is nice, but very dirty, my feet got filthy when walking around after my shower. The hotel is in a nice area. Exotic car dealership just down the street. The staff is friendly and helpful.

    « Good place to stay »

    This hotel worked well for our family. It was more reasonably priced than being in the city. We were upgraded to a suite which worked well. The beds and pillows were too soft for our liking. The breakfast was quick and easy. The staff were all pleasant and responsive. We had no issues with noise from neighbors.

    « low quality hotel, not worth the price »

    very bad sound control between rooms, condition of all amenities are old, staff was friendly, felt grimy, was not very happy with this stay, I was glad to leave, got no sleep, was hoping to relax before I went home

    « Just an average stay »

    We were visiting family in Los Angeles and I could not remember which hotel I had stayed on my previous visit. I had stayed at a few Best Westerns in other areas so i called Best Western to see if the hotel in Woodland Hills was the one we stayed at. The central reservation person assured me it was and booked me with a non refundable rate. When we arrived at the hotel, it was not the one we stayed at on a prior visit. I was extremely disappointed as the other hotel was just down the street a few blocks and another brand. Did not try to move as it was late at night when we arrived. I will tell you the front desk clerk was very nice and welcoming. The Best Western Woodland Hills is more of a motel with room doors opening to the parking lot. The location was good, across the street from a busy shopping center (Grocery and plenty of retail type eateries - think bagels, coffee, and hamburgers). The room was extremely hot when we arrived and probably took three to five hours to cool down with the AC unit they had in the room. We did have to switch our first room as it was not cleaned. This hotel was good for a quick one night trip. We stayed two nights so would have preferred the other hotel we stayed at previously.

    « central location »

    well kept and close to malibu. Good value for $$$$ spent! Woodland Hills has lots of interesting food spots to eat. 15 minute drive thru the canyon to the Pacific Coast hiway. also close to 3 great winerys in the malibu area.

    « Gem of the Valley »

    If you are looking for a quiet motel in the valley, it's almost impossible to find. But Best Western Woodland Hills, located on Ventura Boulevard, does not back up to the Ventura Freeway as almost all other motels in this area do. Instead, on the opposite side of the street from the freeway, it backs up to a residential area. Hence, it is quiet! And the service is great, the staff friendly and the rooms just fine. Food and coffee are available at the Warner Center across the street--and they also offer breakfast. If you want quiet, this is the place to stay.

    « Comfortable »

    I arrived at the hotel after 10:30 pm. I had reserved a King bed room. Well, they didn't have any left, so the guy put me in a Suite. Sweet!!! My overall experience was great. I would stay there again.

    « Best western woodland hills has rude staff and is unwelcoming »

    This hotel has some good things as well as bad things about it. The rates that this hotel charges are steep for a best western. My hotel room was very clean and modern,had a working air conditioner and a private patio with chairs and pool view. When I first checked into the hotel I arrived in an uber and needed help carrying my 3 bags of luggage into the room. The staff person who checked me in refused to help me with my luggage even though my room was up a tall flight of stairs. This hotel has no elevators at all. In the shower inside the bathroom I almost slipped and fell because the shower mats were decentagrating. The manager didn't care about the decentagrating shower mats. This is a safety issue. When I ran out of soap and shampoo and asked the hotel desk clerk for more he said to walk across the street to ride aid or ralphs and buy my own. This is no way to treat a customer paying almost $200 a night for a room. The location of this hotel can't be beat. You have whole foods,ralphs and sprouts all within walking distance as well as the new westfield topanga village. This morning I called the front desk at 10 am asking for a check out later than the 11am checkout time. The front desk person said abolsolitley not. It gets even worse at 10.59am an employee knocks on my hotel room door and tells me kicks me out of the hotel room even though I had to use the restroom. The front desk employee refused to let me use the lobby restroom. I wanted the front desk person to store my luggage while I went to lunch and waited for my uber to take to the airport. The front desk person gave me an attitude about holding my luggage. This hotel has tons of prostitutes in the hotel parking lot. That's gross for a hotel that almost charges $200 a night. To make a long story short this hotel needs to remove the prostitutes and brush up on customer service skills.

    « to get in and out of a busy traffic area this was good for Santa Cruz, Aptos Capitola! »

    This was a expeditious and okay stay for two nights we went to a memorial and we weren't expecting luxury. For the price and convenience this was good. It feels like what I imagine would be a rehab or some kind of medical facility would be like. Although it had a pool and a perfect tennis court (not a crack, like new!) in spite of having a view all the way down to the ocean from the terrace restaurant this is by no means a sumptuous and luxurious place. It's very straightforward and almost depressing. It was clean. the food was 'okay' it was furnished and we got an upgrade but still i didn't want to be there for too long.

    « Clean and quiet »

    It was a typical Best Western. Clean and quiet. The man who checked me in was very helpful and polite. There are no elevators and breakfast ends at 9:30am--too early! The air conditioning barely worked, but luckily it was cool outside. If it's hot outside, this might be an uncomfortable stay.

    « The best thing is the waffles »

    This is a clean and competent hotel on the famous Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles. There is nothing outstanding to report. The rooms have a traditional layout and are spacious and clean. I was particularly impressed with the waffle machine which is located in the small breakfast area off the main reception - very nice. I have paid $170 for this room; it was the going rate for a corporate hotel in this neighbourhood.

    « Thanks for a great stay! »

    We had a great stay in the suite room! Lots of room and kids loved their own area with couch and TV. Very clean and modern. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was awesome - a huge hit with the family. Great location with groceries etc across the road - very convenient. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

    « The best hotel for Families and Business Professionals »

    This hotel is by far the best hotel if you're here for Universal Studios or vacation. It's located next to everything from the mall, movie theaters, grocery store, and restaurants either in walking distance or by car. The staff is always pleasant and helpful and the morning breakfast is fresh and tasty. The rooms are super clean, and the bed is very comfortable.

    « Best Western Woodland Hills »

    My stay was brief on a business tour. The check-in was fast and easy, and the staff was friendly and courteous. The room was clean and fairly up to date. There was a small refrigerator, coffee maker, and wifi. Breakfast was available that included bagels, dry cereal, pastries, juice, and coffee.

    « Convenient Hotel for Woodland Hills »

    We were visiting relatives in the Woodland Hills area of LA and stayed for four days at the Best Western Woodland Hills Inn. It was well located and although it is on a busy road it was not noisy in the hotel. We had no trouble parking but I understand it can get busy at certain times although they did offer further parking in a lot over the road. The Warner Shopping Plaza is opposite and there are many restaurants nearby. The rooms are small and simple but adequate. The breakfast area is very small but you can get a coffee and pastry and take it to your room. I think for the price it represented good value for the area.

    « Next time upgrade »

    The pictures of the hotel looked great. However there was no mention that they had no elevator. We had to carry a lot of bags upstairs. As I was checking in another person was complaining that housekeeping missed making up there room. On the second day housekeeping missed our room too. When we checked in the room only had only one bath towel. Had to go all the way back to the office in the rain to ask for more towels. For the cost to stay there I would stay at a Marriott next time.

    « the West is the Best »

    We were visiting our son during spring break time. The Best Western Woodland Hills Inn was conveniently located and priced twenty-five percent lower than similar-class hotels in the area. We used the hot tub which are getting harder to find at similar hotels. The location is surrounded by great restaurants as well as a variety of shopping destinations.

    « Best Western, Woodland Hills »

    This was a great place to stay. Reasonable and super staff. Very clean and had everything we needed, including continental breakfast in the morning. Lots of things to do in the area too!! Sorry that our stay was so short, beautiful pool and spa as well. We even had a little patio on the back so we could be outside if we wanted to but remain private.

    « Excellent staff, utensil dispensers at breakfast, helpful »

    The staff at breakfast were very friendly and very helpful. Space was sometimes a problem and high seats are a challenge. We really appreciated having dispensers for the plastic ware as this is much healthier than having people reach in a container. Skim milk would be appreciated. Yogurt selection was good. Parking was convenient. We had no problem adding an extra night during our stay.

    « dated motel »

    This is an American style motel, hugely over-priced for what it offers. Inside the room, it is dark and dated interiors. The room has an open cloth hanger (no wardrobe) adjacent to a basin unit. Window air conditioning is noisy and it comes on and off. Beds are uncomfortable. We had the ground floor room which overlooks the car park so the curtains were always drown. There was no minibar nor complimentary water bottle. We could only stay for one night and moved to the Marriott 5 minutes away which was cheaper and it is a hotel!. The photos of the hotel on their web are excellent but do not tell the whole story.

    « Good Motel »

    This really feels more like a motel to me. While the rooms are inside, there is no elevator, just a few staircases and the doors aren't locked and there is no real inside. While the rooms are fine the breakfast left something to be desired. They should put more money into having more availability instead of paying someone to stand there. It is a very small eating area and the person standing there to keep the food stocked feels more creepy than helpful.

    « Excellent Location!! »

    Was a very motel with many amenities near by. We ate at the Something Fishy Japanese Grill. Little pricey but what a treat right next door. I do wish the hot tub would have been working but I took a dip in the pool anyway.

    « Overprised but convenient location »

    The motel seems a bit overprized mainly due to the problems with the air quality they had in the north end of the valley and a lot of home owners had to relocate and therefor there was a shortage of rooms available all around that area. All the hotel/motels in that area had upped their prizes. It was so worth it going to Thousand Oaks location 15 min away. Also my room was cold and there were no extra blankets. And I did turn off the a/c.

    « Great location, great staff, very satisfied »

    I was absolutely satisfied with my stay at the Best Western Woodland Hills Inn. While driving from San Francisco I needed a last-minute hotel reservation in order to catch a morning LAX flight to Hawaii. Unfortunately I'd chosen a very busy night with almost no hotel availability in the LA area. While stopped halfway down I-5 I discovered this hotel in a Best Western directory, called the hotel, and spoke with Henry, a manager. From that point on my trip went smoothly. Henry reserved my room, reviewed excellent driving directions, and gave me great peace of mind for the remainder of my long trip down I-5. The room was perfect for my wife and me -- quiet and roomy; parking was easy; an early morning departure enabled us to reach LAX in 30 minutes. If we'd had time we'd have taken advantage of the morning breakfast beside the lobby. Best of all, Henry greeted us warmly upon arrival and had already printed directions to LAX for us. He answered all our questions and quickly showed me the lobby computer so I could print our boarding passes. What a pleasant surprise to find this hotel -- I'll definitely stay here again during LA trips. I hope Henry's working the front desk again when I arrive!

    « Nicer than expected »

    This property is on a very busy street but the rooms are back far enough that it is surprisingly quiet. Having stayed at the disappointing Best Western dragon gate the night before I was not expecting much. But this hotel is nice, although the rooms are small. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. I would probably stay here again as it is an easy 30 minute drive to Malibu with traffic.

    « Location, location, location »

    The Woodland Hills Best Western is a terrific location for the Warner Center area, Woodland Hills and Tarzana. Because Ventura is an emergency vehicle route, it can be a little noisy. Request a room at the back There is no elevator, so moving luggage can be difficult. The staff is helpful and responsive. A service request was made at the desk, and maintenance staff was in the room by the time I made it back. Breakfast is conventional motel fare, but adequate.

    « Best Western Woodland Hills, CA - Perfect Location »

    This location is centrally located next to everything from grocery stores, restaurants, malls and the movies. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the breakfast each morning is plentiful and good. The staff is always nice every time I go and I usually stay 4 nights. You will not be bored at this location and they have a nice pool too!

    « Fine for families »

    The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the price reasonable. The breakfast room was very crowded - there simply are not enough tables in the winter. I suspect in the summer (with outside seating) this problem is obviated.

    « Home Away From Home »

    We stayed here, on and off, for a few months as our home was being renovated. What a wonderful choice. It's not the Ritz but it suited our needs perfectly. The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Check-in was a breeze. Thanks Jose and Joseph. The room is large and includes a microwave oven and refrigerator. The pillows aren't feather, but are comfortable enough. There is free Wifi in the room and a computer in the lobby for your convenience. Our room was located towards the back of the hotel on the first floor and it was very quiet. You don't hear the people or televisions in the rooms on either side of you and you don't hear any main street traffic. Parking is free and you can park right in front of your room. There is a nice swimming pool at the back of the hotel. An extended Continental breakfast is included which consists of hard-boiled eggs, yogurts, juices, bagels and bread, cream cheese, peanut butter and even Nutella, pastries and muffins and make-your-own waffles. Coffee is available in the lobby all day. There are a number of restaurants near-by and the new Village at Westfield Topanga is 5 minutes away. The hotel is close to the freeway, which makes it very convenient to get anywhere. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « Late Summer Vacation »

    This was a very nice property. Staff were friendly. Our room was clean and updated. The bed was comfortable; the room spacious. We were on the second floor on both visits. In fact we requested to be in the same room upon our return from San Diego. Rooms opened to a hallway. I don't recall an elevator so request ground floor if necessary. Internet worked well and there was a large number of cable choices. The pool area with hot tub was very nice and secluded located behind the rooms on the second floor. It wasn't extremely large but it was refreshing. Breakfast was very good with quite a few offerings including large muffins, yogurt, waffles, cereal, juice, etc. The breakfast area is EXTREMELY tight (it's CA so property is at a premium) so don't wait until it gets busy. Staff kept everything well stocked. There were a few tables outside which we used each day because we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather. It gets pretty warm in the sun so go early. Property is on a busy street, but we weren't bothered at all by noise. The property is located directly across from a strip mall with grocery (Ralphs) and restaurants such as Dickeys Barbecue (excellent...get the daily special for best value), Jamba Juice, frozen yogurt, coffee shop.Staff was very helpful. When they discovered our stay was split between the beginning and end of the week, they suggested we sign up for a promotion Best Western was having. I wouldn't have known about it if they hadn't pointed it out and offered to sign us up. A large indoor mall as well as very nice outdoor mall (Costco in the complex) is only a couple miles away. This is a great value and we will stay here again.

    « BW stay »

    This is the second time I stayed at this hotel. The hotel is accommodating to special needs and request. Rooms were clean and staff friendly. The breakfast hostess was the same person each time. That says something about the staff and facility. She is responsive to your request for help.

    « comfortable, simple, nearby where I needed to be »

    Visiting friends who live in Calabasas during Thanksgiving holiday - requested a indoor corridor 2nd floor room and received request - quiet area, cute bkft area but not large enough when there is a crowd - nice variety of choices like waffemaker and boiled eggs when not crowded and line is not long to make waffles and eggs available - nice variety of muffins/cereals/bagels. Bed is comfortable, would have like a slightly thicker comforter - able to turn on heat or A/C but loud enough that hard to sleep with fan/heat on. Staff very friendly. Check in and check out was easy. Parking is limited. there is an overflow parking lot across street if needed. Next to Goodwill so sometimes homeless people are standing around so don't feel so safe walking onto street. There is a coffee shop across the street and jamba juice nearby but I think better to drive than walk there if going at night. Paid about $150/night including taxes.

    « Decent Hotel With good Location? »

    It is located in a pretty location and the room was pretty big. It is located close to restaurants and convenient. However the hotel is decent and a bit more expensive than usual. Staff was very nice and service was amazing, however I found that their online description didn't quite match what I found over there. Breakfast was ok. Overall, I'd recommend it to you if you are looking for a convenient place with good service!

    « A busy street in a convenient location, but very good »

    The location is very busy near Ventura Blvd. and Topanga Canyon Rd. in Woodland Hills and close to Hwy 101, so it is convenient to activities at the Warner Center. Has an outdoor pool. It's a little inconvenient because a left turn onto Ventura is prohibited, so you have to make sure to go out the side driveway onto Don Pio if you are going west to Topanga. Breakfast is standard "breakfast included" fare, but a nice selection of pastries and muffins. Staff was friendly and and efficient. Housekeeping staff always greeted the guests when they encountered them. Staying at the back of the property away from Ventura is likely more quiet. No elevator, so be aware that schlepping your luggage up two flights of stairs might be difficult. Seemed to be effective in facility maintenance because we saw crews working on the stairs. Convenient to restaurants, with grocery stores and pharmacy across Ventura. Blvd. WiFi was the about the strongest we've encountered. We will go back.

    « Excellent! Will definitley return!!! »

    One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Staff was courteous and very helpful! It was clean and the amenities worked out great! Shopping center with grocery store, pharmacy, and several restaurants came in handy! Certainly will return when traveling to Southern California!

    « Decent Hotel With Interesting Location »

    My husband and I stayed here to be close to relatives living in the area. Overall the hotel is very average, but one thing makes it well worth the stay and I'll get to that in a bit. The entrance does seem quite impressive for an older 3 star. When you walk in it seems familiar, especially if you're a big movie buff. The service was excellent. We asked for a quiet room and got one at the back of the hotel, near the pool but facing the courtyard. Parking was plentiful even though they explained where to find the overflow parking in case it got busy later in the day. The pool is elevated and although not impressively large, the pool and hot tub area had charm you rarely find in a typical chain hotel. Exactly as expected, our room featured the layout and musty odor of an older motel. It had been renovated in 2014 with crown molding, granite counter tops and new furniture. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were typical. We regretted not bringing our own. We're fans of white noise in hotels and the air conditioning/heating unit was perfect. The continental breakfast featured all the usual fruit, yogurt, cheap danishes, cereal and make your own waffle center that you would expect. The breakfast area is tiny and wasn't crowded. Their coffee was just OK. We considered the coffee shop across the street but since it was included, we figured it was fine. Now what makes this hotel interesting is the proximity to movie locations. I'm not sure what movies the hotel has been in, but since so many were filmed on the streets of this area, we've most likely seen it in the cinema before. Google "movies filed in woodland hills, ca" and you'll find this neighborhood to be a popular location for film makers without the tourist traps of Hollywood.

    « Great Get Away »

    This Hotel is our favorite weekend getaway. Rooms are very clean (Even the smoking rooms), front desk clerk is very pleasant and helpful. Not to mention the price is pocket friendly :) It is also within walking distance to restaurants (dine-in and fast food), CVS, and shopping.

    « Woodland Hills Best Western was the best! »

    From the time I checked in the service was excellent. Check-in was fast and easy and my room was clean and fantastic. I am always reminded of why I stay at the Best Western. The location was perfect and I never needed a cab for anything.

    « Super convenient, clean hotel »

    We chose this hotel due to it's good reviews and location. Our room had a fridge and microwave, two things we really like having on vacation so we can bring food instead of eating out every meal. There was also free wifi and free parking. The lady who checked us in was friendly, but it was odd that we had to wait a few minutes in the lobby before she arrived. It was around 3pm, which is near check-in time yet no one was manning the desk. We were in town visiting Universal's Halloween Horror Nights so we were out late. Around 10pm, while at the park, we realized we were going to be getting back to the hotel late, and wanted to request a later check-out time the next morning. I called four times but the phone just rang and rang and no one answered. I thought this was odd considering it wasn't even that late. Again, why is no one manning the phones and desk? We ended up calling at 3:30am when we got back to the hotel and were granted a noon checkout time, but then received a phone call at 11:15am asking if we were checking out that day. Strange that the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing. The pool and hot tub looked nice, but we didn't get in. The pool hours are from 9am-9pm but the hot tub hours were 5-9pm. I thought this was odd. Why can't you get in the hot tub before 5? The pool was also a deep 8.5 feet which is unusual for a hotel pool. This hotel was close by Universal, about a 25 minute drive. It was across the street from a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and Whole Foods which was very convenient. There was a free breakfast from 630-930am which was too early for us so we didn't try it this time. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The only true pain in the butt was the parking. The website promised free parking but when we got back so late from the event, there was only one spot left and we weren't even sure it was a legit spot. Despite this, we would definitely stay here again!

    « Pretty perfect for us »

    We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western. Location wise it is a little out from Central LA but we liked the fact it was out of town as we could take advantage of features like free parking and the area being quieter. It is ideally located for Northern LA and areas like Calabasas, Malibu, Santa Monica and Hollywood if you have your own car. The hotel itself was clean and in a good state of repair - our room was large and well appointed with a large comfy bed, TV with loads of cable channels. We didn't use it but there is a pool, which looked good. The included breakfast was really good. The area has plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. We found it a great value hotel in an ideal location for exploring LA. Would definitely return!

    « Good Value, Pleasant Stay »

    We stayed 5 nights here and it was a pleasant and centrally located motel for activities in Southern California. Topanga Canyon Rd takes you to Malibu and the freeways are very close also to get to other destinations. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the motel was clean. We had room 200 which is very large. The breakfast was good but would be better if there were a few more non carbohydrate offerings. Protein was limited to boiled eggs and yogurt. The pastries and bagels were good and fresh. I would recommend this hotel as an excellent bargain!

    « Great Place to Stay Would Book Again »

    Reasonable price, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was wonderful. Fresh and quite the variety. Fresh fruit, waffles, pastries, cereal, coffee, juice, yogurt, muffins, bagels, toast. Mix and match whatever you heart desires and as much as you desire to have. Quiet and peaceful stay. Many shops and restaurants close by to choose from. My only Cons are..the pool and hot tub are upstairs and that makes it difficult for people with handicaps as there is no elevator only stairs. Only 1 washer and dryer...had to wait a few times in order to do our laundry. Despite these 2 cons, I would book and stay at this location again.

    « Quiet, clean and comfortable Room »

    Everything from cleanliness, quietness, and comfortable bed make this a very good stay. The only thing that can be improved on is to add scramble eggs, bacons and sausages to their breakfast offering.

    « Very Nice Staff »

    The Best Western Woodland Hills was a little different than I expected based on the reviews I read. It is definitely more motel than hotel. The rooms are fairly dated, BUT they have the nicest staff, really everyone I encountered there! It is a good value for the area, where it is difficult to find a reasonably priced room. We spent $30 to park for 4 hours in Venice beach (not recommended :p ). That said, LA is under development again, everything is getting crowded/ pricy. The Best Western was pretty basic, but gave us a lot of room for what we paid. We had a 1 br Queen suite. It was a large room with a minifrige and microwave, and there was an adjoining room with a table, sofabed, a second bureau and a second flat panel TV. The continental breakfast gives you more than most, with a waffle maker as well as breads and pastries. There was fresh fruit at breakfast, and there was always a basket at the front desk. I was surprised that the hotel was out of a very busy commercial street. We had a room towards the back and were not disturbed by street noise at all (which I expected, given how busy the street is). The hotel has a small pool and a laundromat (which was more reasonable than most I encountered). It was a very pleasant stay, largely because of how great the staff was. I was 'on the road' with my son to look a colleges. It was a practical trip, not a vacation, so I was looking for different things. This absolutely met our needs, and while it was not especially luxurious, we were not there to spend a lot of time in the room. We had access to every convenience with a large shopping center across the street and a trader Joe's and Whole Foods just down the road. I would recommend it if you need a place to stay in the area. It is clean, reasonably priced and puts you close to the center of the action (downtown is 10 minutes away, Hollywood less, depending on traffic of course). The wonderful staff and exceptional maintenence is what made this a better than average stay.
