Living in the valley for over 2 decades, this is the 1st time I had a need to check into this Hotel Celebrating the 4th at the Warner Park is an annual event for us It’s FREE and pretty accessible

This year however we came across a fireworks package from the Warner Center Marriott It’s directly above the Warner Park where the Fireworks show is adjacent We booked it specifically in order to get an birds eye view of the event and kind of bypass the crowds mostly This hotel has all the amenities needed and has been updated to reflect the current contemporary look Service has been great and the rooms are very nice and sleek If I had another opportunity to check in the hotel I would not hesitate

Gaby Quintero

We stayed here during a Fourth of July weekend trip to the LA area Staff was super friendly and helpful The room was very clean

Beds were so comfy! We melted into them every night we got back to the hotel We almost overslept the morning we were supposed to check out because they were so comfortable Close proximity to a lot of things There is a Whole Foods, Ralph’s and Amazon Fresh store all close by for food Starbucks in the lobby which was super convenient We stopped there before we headed out for the day One of my favorite Marriott’s we’ve stayed at I am definitely going to be back

This place was about to charges me $100 per night even though my company paid already & for self-parking fee This is for incidental charge but for every night is ridiculous Had the account hold for $150 instead of $500

When I checked out the front desk blond curly hair woman charged me for the parking even though there is a note there I had to contact the account to help it cleared Refunded within 3 daysThe check-in lady Sam is wonderful, she got me on the 3rd floor No carpet which I want and no noise coming from the top or bottom floors The 2nd floor leads to the 3rd floor parking building There a mini fridge but it can’t even keep my ice cream cool No microwave Gym is kind of old and dirty I like the free breakfast the platinum member lounge Make sure the front desk activate your membership to gain access to itNote: Select option 5 on the main menu to speak with the account and have her send you the credo card authorization form Otherwise you’ll be charging for the full amount for the stays

Came up to attend a wedding down the road in Malibu Good clean hotel, seemed full and busy Good location near the 101 Fwy and next door to a Trader Joe’s Market

Checking was easy and was great by a energetic employee who made sure everything was taken care of The room was clean and kept up nicely Had no issues with the room or amenities The hot breakfast buffets typical 2 kinds of ready made omelets, good size sausages, home fry potatoes, cereals, oat meal, fresh fruit, breads, yogurt, coffee and juices I would stay here again

martica davis

Stayed for a wedding in Malibu Amazing front desk staff! Beautiful grounds, outdoor patio, and small pool area Buildings were fairly easy to navigate, but main interior areas could use a deep cleaning, as could the rooms

Our room (Building #2) was in desperate need of updating and a deep cleaning, but rooms for others in our party (Building #1) were more updated The linens could also use some updating they were quite rough Our stay was extremely quiet, which I enjoyed The location is great and the parking was good I feel like the price of our room should have been $50-75 cheaper for it to feel like good value Okay place to stay if you need access to Malibu

Hope Emry Ortiz

We were very happy with this hotel It was very clean and the room spaces were great The check in process and staff were friendly and helpful

We appreciated the free breakfast, though I think it will be better once the buffet reopens post-COVID We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub, which were very comfortable and clean The room was also very quiet, especially considering we were right over the freeway

Nathan Williams

This is our all-time favorite hotel The cleanliness is unsurpassed The housekeeping is amazing

The pool and entire patio area is beautiful and clean The fitness center is excellent The rooms are spacious and shockingly comfortable–and I can never sleep in hotels The attention to ‘quiet hours’ is appreciated The iced fruity water in the lobby is SO GOOD! Wonderful six-night experience for my family

Shirley Rivera

Clean hotel, good customer service, spacious rooms But the pool were close during my entire 3 night stay My partner was on a business meeting and I was hoping relax while he work but I couldn’t do anything, the bar/restaurant closed from 11am to 5pm

The ice machine of the 4th floor didn’t work Nothing for lunch or drinks during afternoon hours The bar have a good entrees selection and the bartender was super friendly

Kym D.

My husband and I recently got married and stayed at this hotel with several of our guests We planned to pay for one of our guests Room & Tax so I called in advance to make sure we could do this, we were assured we could When we got to the hotel, we asked the front desk to please charge our card the room and tax for our friends room

We were told it was taken care of and our friends would simply need to come by the front desk to put down their credit card for incidentals and pick up their keys Hours later, I get a text from my friends saying that they were charged the room and tax because the credit card we put down got “deleted” We make our way back to the front desk to figure out what went wrong – the front desk agent told us her supervisor would look into it I had to be the one to ask how we would know it was taken care of, would someone be following up with us, etc, etc, there was no initiative to assure us Shortly after, we get a call from the supervisor and the supervisor asked us to come back downstairs to explain the situation At this point, it is the FOURTH time we are talking to someone to deal with a simple request The supervisor explained that our friends were indeed charged and the solution suggested to us? Just transfer money to our friends once the hold was released from our card This was all happening the day before our wedding and I still can’t fathom how a simple request became so complicated

This is a great little hotel located in Calabasas The service is great Although they claim to have a restaurant it is not really a separate part of the lobby it’s kind of just in the corner

They do have a wine bar and a extensive snack area where you can purchase beer wine and any snacks you might need The bed was really nice and so was the room The pool is pretty small but it also has a Jacuzzi The main thing I liked about this hotel is that it’s walking distance from the Commons Mall There are a lot of restaurants and shops in that mall and it’s a fun place to stroll around So if you find yourself in Calabasas this is a good solid place to stay

Steven Rosenzweig

Pros are that the rooms were freshly redone My wife and I worked here for a couple weeks and while the rooms were small, they were as described on the website Free Internet was generally fine for zoom meetings

I would have liked ovens in the room, more outlets by the desk and in the bedroom The staff and housekeeping were very helpful Breakfast daily was minimal Pool/hot tub are small but worked Gym had a couple treadmills, some free weights and benches The outdoor furniture was missing some cushions and the lounge chairs by the pool were cheap (several were broken) Location was near shopping and highway My wife and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for those looking for a long stay and no frills

Zan Bernhardt

No indication when I made the reservation that the hotel was undergoing remodeling The room was NOT ready for occupancy 3/4 of outlets weren’t live

The TV remote wasn’t for our TV and we couldn’t shut it off at night, so we had to cover it with a towel to avoid the glare If we unplugged it, then we needed another remote the next day The shampoo/conditioner mounted in the shower didn’t work A/C was so loud that no one could have slept through the noise Stayed 3 nightsno housekeeping inquiry whether we needed new towels, nothing They never came in Front desk people were attentive when we called to say there was no hairdryer in the room as well as having to have all the feather pillows changed out due to allergyThe location is wonderful and the room was clean

B Nicole

The stay was enjoyable They had everything we needed for a family of 5, super excited about that Choices were limited for our budget, traveling with kids, needing a fridge and microwave and separate bedroom with two beds and a playpen

So we were accommodated very well Staff were friendly and some made us feel welcomed There was one guy in particular whose name I didn’t catch but he made sure we were taken care of The only complaints I have are that the beds were super uncomfortable I woke up with neck and back pain every night, and the view wasn’t so great where we were placed Also there wasn’t a real breakfast For $800+ I expected at least a cooked breakfast not microwavebles However the jimmy dean sandwiches were tasty

I have stayed at this hotel numerous nights since November of 2021 as my company opened a new business nearby Overall, the staff is incredible and my stays are pleasant I would agree with all the reviews that this hotel front desk is really bad and lacks serious customer service

Very rude, poor phone etiquette and make you feel like you are a severe bother to them I do however want to give a HUGE shout out to Jeffrey as he is the ONLY employee at the front desk with proper customer service and excels in delivering a excellent experience! I now tell all my colleagues when booking or needing assistance at this hotel to only ask for him Congrats to Jeffrey! You are a rockstar! The bartender is also by the the best! Your lucky to have these two on your team!For the rest of you and your management team…step it up!Coming from an Ambassador Elite

james Na

So we are at the beginning of our stay and already some disappointment I requested extra towels three times and it took me walking to the front desk to retrieve them myself There are 4 of us in the room and they had given 3 bath towels

1 of which had a dried blood stain on it Plus side there is breakfast regardless if you stay with Townsend Suites or Courtyard The pool is quite popular, so be prepared to find a small crowd there I will update my review along the way

R. Hoffman

This property is split between two different brands – Courtyard and Townplace I’ve stayed at both and prefer the Courtyard by far 2-star rating is due to the lack of cleaning on the Townplace side) and having to babysit my Bon Voy account to get credit earned with my stays here

The beds are comfortable and rooms are nice size The property can be loud if staying in a room along the highway or north side of hotel (animal shelter next door) It’s convenient to the 101 as well A bit isolated in terms of restaurants nearby LA Fitness is next door but gym is doable at hotelRecommend NEVER booking the Townplace side My only attempt to stay on Townplace side included not just 1 but 2 dirty rooms Ultimately I requested to be moved to Courtyard side, which the front desk accommodated after I showed them someone’s dirty towel was under my sink (and let them know I didn’t have any clean towels which I realized when I was getting out of shower so had to use the one and only washcloth to dry off) The room switch apparently caused issues crediting my prepaid stay for Bon Voy points I’ve been trying for 25 months to get it resolvedLocation is super convenient to my office otherwise I would find another Marriott property that is more consistent and doesn’t hassle me for Marriott pointsUPDATE: As you can see the property GM responded and claims my points were added That is absolutely NOT TRUE As of 8/13/22, I am still missing credit for the 2 nights I stayed on the Courtyard side of this property I have spent way too much time groveling for points that should be automatic RIDICULOUS!!!

When we arrived the hotel was undergoing renovation which made us a bit skeptical But the moment we walked into the lobby the experience was beyond exceptional The staff was super friendly & treated us with professionalism but like long time friends

The rooms were clean & parking was great The free breakfast was an actual breakfast!!!! We couldn’t have been happier

Kathleen Franco

Such a great place to get away with your family Animal friendly they have designated areas for your pets to do their business Kids had a blast having their own room

rooms are very spacious and modern bathroom is big perfect lifting and glass shower doors staff super nice and helpful house keeping is also on top of their game Pool was being remodeled at the time of stay but they have a great seating area and huge lawn with tropical flowers to take amazing pictures also breakfast is served I recommend you get the burrito with sausage and potato kids loved the eggs and oat meal orange just is good too A little on the higher end of pricing Hopefully in the future they might do an awards program to ear points or discounts for returning visitors I like how it’s close to a grocery store and gas station it’s right next to the freeway but you couldn’t hear the cars or trucks go by due to the tall trees There is a huge ditch so I would recommend keeping your pets in a leash becuase mine almost ran away and fees in to the ditch you would have to can 911 to help your animal out but other than that my kids loved staying here and so did the boyfriend I highly would recommend this hotel to anyone trying to have a local getaway

The Nobu Ryokan Malibu is a fabulous, relaxing, elegant property, with amazing, uncompromising, top of the line service The entire staff worked seamlessly together, to create a most memorable and enjoyable stay Our suite was sweet and spacious, with two luxurious spa like bathrooms

The room has a couple easy fixes that need to be addressed: ie a new carpet in the living area, discoloration’s or oil stains on the couch need to be removed, and the bed needs to be replaced It felt like a futon, a thin, hard, old futon mattress, which detracted from the luxurious vibe the hotel is striving for Located right on the ocean, we enjoyed our terrace for sunning, relaxing, dining, and taking in the ocean scene One of the rooms highlights was the mini bar It was completely personalized, down to the very last detail All requests were answered thoroughly While staying at the Ryokan, I also enjoyed a very powerful Reiki session in my room, through Fit Concierge I HIGHLY recommend having a Reiki session at the Ryokan, it was like the icing on the cake for our stay I hope you get a chance to stay at the Nobu Ryokan Malibu soon Thank you one last time too, to the entire Nobu Ryokan Malibu family, for your amazing hospitality and care!

Paul Chirdon

Stayed here for 2 nights Fantastic hospitality Easy access to the beaches and restaurants of Malibu

It is a great place to stay for some peace and quiet This is a perfect getaway if you can drop off the kids with Grandma for a few days 🙂 Breakfast is a FULL breakfast and the conversations are lively with guests from all overWe will definitely stay again and recommend it highly


This is a unique place nestled in Topanga Canyon, about a 10 min drive to the nearest town, and 30 minutes to the beach Driving around here can be kind of difficult/stressful if you’re not used to mountain driving The roads are steep and curved, and not well maintained, so it’s quite bumpy

You definitely want a working parking brake because some parking spots are on a steep incline Also, the area is not well lit at nightThe hotel itself is beautiful with good views of the countryside There are some outdoor porches you can sit on and sip tea in the mornings Very peaceful and tranquil There’s a state park within walking distance with some trails, but it’s not leisurely walking We brought our trekking poles and were glad we had themThe rooms were immaculate and cozy However, the sound insulation is not great at night We could hear people talking and walking upstairs I’m a light sleeper so I found that a bit bothersome The rooms don’t have individual AC so we woke up hot, but opening the windows helped cool it downThe breakfast was very tasty and homemade We enjoyed meeting the other guests at the hotel and had some intriguing conversationAll in all, it was a good visit for some quality time as a couple

Jack LaBarba

My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding We did late check-in, which was convenient The room was clean and pleasant, the architecture of the buildings was attractive, and the breakfast was yummy

However, the owner, Warren, sat with us during breakfast and we had an unpleasant conversation with him Simple chatting would have been great, but he kept steering the conversation towards the perils of collectivism, the dangers of immigrants, and the merits of social darwinism I don’t demand that my innkeeper have the same ideology as I do, but my wife and I stayed here with the intention of relaxing, not to be sermonized at or provoked into a fraught political argument

I visited the Best Western Thousand Oaks hotel at the top of the month and was met by some difficult and tasteless challenges There was old and molded food found in the microwave, what appeared to blood on the sheets, and a ton of interactions that felt very unfair and discriminative When I expressed my concern to the manager, he was professional, he compensated two nights of my stay free of charge

That was admirable and professional; however as soon as I brought up what felt like discriminative behavior and recommended the establish implement better hiring and training practices, I was rudely placed on the do not rent list and was at that point embarrassed and taken through a great deal of poor and unethical experiences I advised both the regional and location managers that I had no desire to stain the reputation of the company by taking to Yelp or the business bureau or social media, hence my decision to bring my concerns to them directly It is completely disheartening and disappointing given as a consumer I simply voiced my experience There were a ton of other options that could have been taken with this incident starting with simply hearing out my concerns, agreeing to further investigate, increasing training etc but to respond the way these owners have further supports the very concern that I have expressed In this day and time such poor business practices must be addressed I could see if I trashed the room, had tons of guests or did anything to cause a burden to the establishments but I didn’t I simply conveyed my concerns and asked that they be addressed This behavior is a poor reflection on the Best Western brand itself and should be addressed immediately! Travelers, please hold these owners accountable We spend our hard earned money We utilize their services and all we sometimes require is acknowledgment of our concerns and a means to a better resolution I am so disappointed in this company and hope Best Western Corporate can help make this right!

I have no idea how this hotel has Sheraton branding At best, at best it qualifies for a four points flag Very dated hotel with staff that could care less

Calling the furniture old is a compliment We stayed in the “presidential suite” but I can assure you it was only presidential in name The fixtures were damaged and dinged Wallpaper was coming off Furniture was STAINED Cleanliness through the hotel was questionable The entire property is very very dated and in need of a desperate upgrade And by upgrade I don’t mean new furniture Although that wouldn’t hurt, but the exterior paint is in horrible shape, windows, door jams, elevators need maintenance, automatic doors were not working, hallway wallpaper and paint was chipped and pealing, the list goes on If this hotel is a representation of the Sheraton brand then Sheraton is going the way of Ramada The once upon a time tier one brand that lost its image due to dated properties I probably won’t stay again

My experience at the Surfrider was exactly what I wanted out of a Malibu vacation I was able to easily walk across the street to the beach and pier They offered beach towels, on-site parking, a cozy vibe, and friendly staff

I heard there are Mini Coopers to rent, but I didn’t get a chance to do so The rooftop restaurant is lovely and it doesn’t get better than overlooking the coast They even offered to make me a picnic basket when I called ahead to confirm my booking (it was filled with goodies and locally-sourced items which I thought was well beyond the value I paid for it)The room itself is small but cozy The bathroom shower includes a handheld, which makes it really easy washing away sand and bits — great thinking The housekeeping staff are attentive The entire team made it a point to recognize us, making me feel welcome I couldn’t resist and bought their candles before checking outThank you to the team for running a lovely, chic, modern yet vintage feeling boutique hotel in a brilliant location I will be back!


This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay in Malibu Every little detail was perfect Every single person that works there is so incredibly friendly and helpful

I took my wife there for a birthday weekend and every person that we encountered made sure to wish my wife a happy birthday and really made the experience feel special I’m pretty hopeless when it comes to planning, but the staff at the Surfrider helped me plan and arrange everything for from a beautiful bouquet of flowers that were already delivered to the room on arrival, drinks in the room, in-room massage, and a delicious birthday cake during dinner The in-room massage was amazing All of the drinks and food were fantastic The rooftop deck has probably the best view of Malibu and the Malibu pier and it is reserved for guests of the hotel only so we were able to sit right away If you have an electric car, they have two level 2 chargers in their parking lot It felt like a truly bespoke experience and I cannot recommend the Surfrider Malibu enough We will definitely plan to return in the future

Was here for a weekend and we stayed on the ground floor room The service was friendly and accommodatingThe room was fairly small but tastefully furnished

We truly enjoyed our short time hereWe tried the rooftop restaurant for both lunch and dinner Food didn’t disappoint I loved the Thai twist in the ceviche Drinks were creative and delicious Would love to stay here again when I’m in Malibu
