"Decent mid-range motel in Sherman Oaks"
Very big room, very small bathroom. Well located, typical breakfast. Some notable artwork in the lobby was a pleasant surprise...two premium Frederick Remington bronzes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay. Son loved swimming in the pool. Restaurant attached to the hotel was good, but a little pricey. Breakfast was pretty good for being free. Only complaint would be that i wish the bathroom floors were cleaner.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay...would definitely stay here again..."
This is an absolute gem .... it has easy access to so many places...the only thing that I would change is the squeaky floor .... it is so annoying...stay on the 2nd floor...being underneath that would be horrible....the breakfast was great...& the Mikado Japanese restaurant is awesome....the staff is so nice...loved it...will definitely go back....Thanks […] Mikado...hope to see you soon!!!

"Affordable place to stay for day trips."
We had a very pleasant stay, although just an overnight stay, it was convenient and clean. I liked the rooms being inside the gardens that gave a peacefulness to it. I would recommend it, and the price was very affordable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was very pleased. The room contained microwave, freezer and refrigerator. Full breakfast voucher was included in price redeemable at their Restaurant. Meeting facilities and ambiance were excellent as dinner at restaurant was excellent too. The pool and jacuzzi were located with additional rooms on other side of hotel lobby. The larger portion of rooms […] were located on other side of lobby that provided a quiet Japanese courtyard containing a reflection pool, garden, bridge and rickshaw that was charming.

This hotel is well located, furnishings are nice, staff is pleasant. However, maintenance is a mess. My hotel room heater didn't work, so I woke up with a cold the next day - thanks so much - and the toilet didn't flush properly - yuck. They 'save' on maintenance and wait for stuff to break instead of checking rooms out every day to be sure all is functioning. […] Pity - it would be a good hotel otherwise, but behind the elegant furnishings it has the qualities of a slum. I will not stay again. Which btw is MOST inconvenient for me.

"Disappointing Hotel in LA for what we paid"
Front desk staff without information about LA (not even a map), very poor breakfast, restaurant not clean, during my stay the telephone did not worked and was never repaired, and poor room cleaning service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"a LA favorite"
we are not in room much, but hotel is quiet, extremely clean, and front desk always responsive. There is breakfast included, so that is very convenient. I like the restaurant's asian cuisine for lunch and dinner. A great location for us, near family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel staff.Room carpet needs to be cleaned"
The hotel staff were friendly, room was okay, but carpet was dirty. I recommend they recarpet the facility. Hotel is located in a safe nice area 5min from upscale shops and good restaurants. This was the most reasonable price, the only disappointment we found were breakfast for being limited on variety and the dirty carpet. We had a wonderful time at […] universal studios.

The Motel is not impressive. The rooms are adequate and the room was clean. I got the room on an unpublished rate and did not know the Motel until I booked. I think the three star rating is a little thin.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We really enjoyed our stay!"
We went to Universal Studios and wanted to stay somewhere close. This hotel was quiet and the free breakfast saved us some money. There isn't many places to eat around the hotel, but it is right by the freeway which is nice. They have extra shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving cream...that you can get for free at the front desk, as well as free wi […] fi. Overall we would definitely stay there again!!!

The hotel is ten min. from our daughters apt. Your hotel is nice and very clean. Everything worked out great. We were on time for her graduation at Mt. St. Mary's .Going back and forth was easy. Afterwards she had a party and driving ten min. Was great. We will be back, very accomidating!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super close to Universal and Walk of Fame"
It was an okay price for the proximity to the places we wanted to see. The room had a moldy smell later in the evening. The outdoor pool was nice but you have to check out the towels at the front desk. No close fast food resturants.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel itself was very nice but the neighborhood it was in wasn't nice at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel with a great location"
Most of my business took place around north Los Angeles and this hotel was very conveniently located in the mids of things. The complimentary breakfast was right on point and fresh. The room was very clean. Don't forget to close the shutters for the day if you leave the room or it may get hot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Doesn't qualify for 3 star on Expedia"
This hotel doesn't qualify for 3 star rating on Expedia. There was mold on bathroom tub and water doesn't go down quickly in the sink.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to 50th Grant Hi reunion"
The help was wonderful. They were personable and gave history of the area. The pool and hot tub were great. It's local,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceeds Expectations for the Price"
As a moderately priced hotel, the value exceeded my expectations. Clean, quiet, comfortable, close to restaurants, tourist attractions and major highways, this hotel delivered more than I expected. Will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable pillows, comfortable bed. Can't beat the price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice for the price"
The reviews were all over the map on this place, but I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Mikado. They're still working on renovations (the painting crew draped my rental car one of the days I was there, as they painted the hotel's facade. The Mikado isn't much to look at, on the outside (that new coat of paint, notwithstanding). My room […] was decently-sized, with a pleasant, clean smell. Water pressure was great in the shower (with a high shower-head, which made this 6ft tall guy happy). The bed was extremely comfortable, as well. Front desk was very courteous. I extended my trip by a day via Expedia, and they made sure I was able to stay in the same room, even though it was a Friday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel room is spacious and beds are comfortable. Beddings and towels are clean. Location is in a good area, close enough to Hollywood. The TV, room phone and remote control does not work. My room phone connected me to another guest room when I pressed "0" for the front desk so I can get help since the safety lock to my room does not work. I have to […] use my cell phone to contact the front desk for assistant. The first day the cable when out and TV did not work. Then when I return to my room at 9 PM I was able to turn on the TV but was not able to change the channel. Contacted the front desk again but they were not able to help. The front desk was kind enough to give me a discount for the inconvenience upon checking out. The free breakfast was OK. The staff is very helpful and polite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel close to Universal Studios"
A little bit too noisy, due to extreme proximity to Highway. Bathroom too small. Breakfast was ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
Carpet felt dirty. And the breakfast buffet wasn't very good only eggs , potatoes, and sausage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel, great service, nice room, delicious free breakfast! Free wifi AND parking. Would definitely stay again! :)Genuine Expedia guest review
this hotel is so rundown and the room is so noisy, breakfast was so so with very limited choice, the biggest issue is the noise and with similar price, we will go somewhere like protofino hotel but not here anymore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to USH, Delish Breakfast, Free Parking!"
We wanted to be fairly close to Universal Studios, but wanted to pay a decent price--The Mikado definitely exceeded our expectations! The room was clean, the staff was friendly and it was about 1-2 exits away from the park. The breakfast was fantastic and served in their restaurant next door, but the pool and spa were a little too green for us. No issues […] with other guests and the hotel seemed pretty quiet for the two nights we stayed. There was minimal light in the actual room due to the skinny windows and location of room, but that is personal preference. I loved the free parking and the wi-fi was okay. We would definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Happily got what I paid for."
I booked the hotel based on location and rates. My friends couldn't understand why I stayed there and I said: "I plan to spend less than 10 hours a day in the room and I don't need more than a clean bed, bathroom and TV." I got all that plus breakfast (not writing home about it but it was included in my rate), a pool and jacuzzi, and free parking. The […] staff was efficient and polite. I would recommend the hotel.

The only negative was there was a very strong chemical smell after they cleaned the room and we had to leave the door open for awhile to get it to clear it out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room not ready at 3 Couldnt get in until 4- 1 hr past check in Tv not working properly Free breakfast- didnt keep pans full with food- didnt keep plates stockedGenuine Expedia guest review
we arrived 10mins prior to check in time & were told we still had to wait & they would call us when ready. there was a little bit of a wait even after check in time although the other guest were already helped. The rooms were priced at or around $123/night & the pictures provided looked like the room was worth that much but that was not the case. it […] was a small hotel with small rooms and vending machine that only accepted coins & nothing special. the pool had a layer of leafs and the hotel carpets were dirty. also, there were a few rooms undergoing construction or having new carpets put in & the noise was very unpleasant.

"Very pleasant stay in the valley"
We've stayed here three times. It is close to where our daughter lives and has excellent access to the freeways to get into LA or further into the valley or over to Pasadena. They have added complimentary continental breakfast at the Mikado which is a nice addition. Free WiFi, very nice lobby and a nice outdoor pool. You are backed up against the freeway […] so there is ambient noise when you are outside. I've never experienced issues with road noise while in a room. The central Japanese garden is a very nice feature, quite relaxing. We always have at least one lunch at the restaurant, I love their tempura. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Family of 3 stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. 5 year old kept on calling the place a fancy hotel. Little one also enjoyed the pool area. The fridge and microwave in the room were a good addition. Adjacent restaurant served free breakfast daily and at night, the sushi dinner (not free) was worth the money. Server gave 5 year old free soup when he heard […] little boy say its his favorite. Hotel is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. It's close to Universal Studios and the 101 freeway. There's also a mall few blocks down. Housekeeper did a good job cleaning the room and making the beds. Mom was not a fan of the carpet in the room because it looked worn and stained but it was easily remedied by asking the kid to wear flip flops. Toiletries and towels were replenished daily-kudos! Definitely will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Little Above Average"
Aside from the smell of the cleaning product, the room was fine, but the restaurant was fabulous! We had dinner and a complimentary breakfast that was worth it! Thanks.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all attractions, near highway"
Staff was very helpful, pool was super clean! Free bkfst was super good, we saved at least $200.00 not buying bkfst. Room was small but comfortable and extra cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Universal and surrounding attractions"
Staff was friendly. room was clean and comfortable. Seems like a family friendly atmosphere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and comfortable."
The parking was limited but we always felt secure. Though, I have not stayed in this area before, it was easy to find and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to event"
Stay was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay here was great especially the front desk staff Ms Anna, she was really helpful. The down side is they do not have enough rollaway bed, I booked for 3 person but their extra beds were sold out!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boring area- Far away from everything"
Definitely not worth the price. Definitely not a 3 star property. Very boring area. Nothing within walking distance. Had to drive a long way to restaurants unless you want sushi. There were sushi restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for LA"
The Mikado was a centrally based hotel for our stay in LA. We were visiting friends in Hollywood, Burbank, and Anaheim in addition to going to Disneyland and California Adventure. This place was great for all of these locations. The room was comfortable, the pool was well-kept. The only complaint is that we wished there were more fruit and vegetable […] options at breakfast, but that's only because it far exceeded expectations for a hotel breakfast since it was more than a typical continental breakfast. We will definitely be staying here again at our next visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint Little Hotel"
We have stayed in this hotel a few years ago when it was Best Western. We recently stayed here again for a vacation and we really like it. Free hot breakfast is a big plus. It's close to places we frequently visit. There is a really nice and not at all crowded mall nearby. The hotel is small and I think that's why we like it. The location is away from […] major LA traffic, so it's awesome and we got plenty of good night sleep.The rooms are nothing fancy, same with the bathroom - but it's just right for the price. They are clean. The front desk staff are very helpful and polite. We are definitely loyal customers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel looked nice like the pictures online. The hair dryer was not working well. The two rooms we had had drainage problems with their showers and sinks. Was a little disappointed. Voiced my concerns with the clerks at the front desk. The two different indivuals said they would bring it up to their manager. Nothing else come of it. I guess I just expected […] something more for the ambiance they portrayed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small hotel- great find!"
Mikado hotel is conveniently located near Studio City. The hotel rooms are a little on the older side but they are clean and have the basics. The staff is very warm and helpful. We enjoyed having dinner at the Japanese restaurant attached to the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I satisfied this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably priced hotel in good location"
If you're visiting LA to see tourist attractions and such, I would highly recommend this hotel for its convenient location. In addition, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the free wifi access complements that well (although it's not very fast, nonetheless). Only issue I ran into was with one member of the hotel staff, whom I asked for a […] rollout bed. He said that the hotel didn't offer those, but 2 days later my friend asked another staff member and we were given a bed (for a fee). Overall, if you're looking to have fun in LA with a moderate budget, I highly suggest Mikado. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A great stay. No problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed out stay at the Mikado. Since our room was not available the staff gave us a upgrade. Everyone was extremely pleasant and accommodating; he internal grounds pretty; our room comfortable and an amazing restaurant. We loved the sushi so much we ate there twice in one day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very dirty hotel room"
My family I stayed 2 nights. We did get our request on extra towels and sheets before we got there which was great. Breakfast so pretty decent and the location was perfect. Our hotel room looked clean but ad we walked in our hotel our white socks turned dark black and some of us walked barefoot and made our feet look so dirty, it was disgusting- the […] carpets need to be ripped out or they need to do some serious shampoo to carpets. Also the bedding did not feel clean, bath tub drain was clogged on the first person who took their shower and water came up above my shins. Very dirty place to stay esp if you have children. Never again will we stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
