Oyster Hotel Review

Studio City Court Yard Hotel

Scene

Budget motel featuring classic decor, palm trees, and a clean pool

The Studio City Court Yard Hotel appeals to travelers on a budget who are looking for a clean, no-frills hotel near Los Angeles’s tourist attractions. The two-story motel is divided in two parts and surrounded by a few palm trees. Stairs with wrought iron railings lead up to outdoor hallways that provide a lot fresh air, but there's no elevator.

The lobby entrance is just off of Ventura Boulevard and features a night window and a vending machine outside. Near the front desk is a small breakfast buffet area with a waffle maker and a microwave; the space tends to get crowded in the mornings.
