Convenient location, big rooms

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Spacious room, big fridge in room, rainfall shower
Cons: Towels/linens could be cleaned better, and room and hallways could use a loving touch.
This hotel isn't bad. It's a little run-down, but it's fine. The two biggest problems I had with it were the stains and long black hairs on my towel (neither my husband nor I have long black hair), and the fact that the whole thing needed a good spruce-up. But overall, not bad. It's relatively modern, but just needs some better maintenance.The bed was big and comfortable - I think it had to be a California King? There was a fridge, a rainfall shower, a couch, and plenty of outlets for charging electronics. It's not the best hotel I have stayed at, but not the worst, and you can't beat the price. The parking is also weird - it's tandem parking, so if you park behind someone, you have to leave your keys at the front desk. It's also right next to the highway, so we could hear cars going by at night. I got used to that pretty quickly. Overall, I don't recommend this hotel if you are an absolute germophobe, because you will notice the wear and tear (and in my case, the stain/hair on my towel...the other towels weren't bad so I probably just got a bad towel...I can put that stuff out of my mind if I think it's an isolated incident), but if you are looking for space and relative comfort for a good price, this is the hotel for you.

Nice hotel, close to Universal Studios

Posted Oct 19, 2014
The hotel was great however, my room had a con-joining door and it was paper thin. At 7am I could hear my neighbors every word. It was aweful! Also, I arrived at 2, i req early check in but they had no recorded of it. I had to wait in my car for 1.5 hrs, with my kids. That was horrible.

Good. But, they will give you free parking if you check in with your phone on Facebook of Twitter. The only problem is that the staff will not tell you that when you are checking in.

Better Options Elsewhere

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: hmmm
Cons: See above
Carpets have rips in them. The water pressure is extremely low. Had to hold the flush multiple times. Lighting is awful - felt like I was in a chemistry lab.

Would stay at again.

We had a great experience at the hotel. Daily happy hour, spa on second floor, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and location was very central.

Great location. Not family friendly.

Posted Oct 5, 2014
I would not take my family here. I would go again for business or with friends. I would take my wife and I. But, definitely not a good spot for kids IMO. Not sure, but it felt like the sheets were 3 to 4 years old. Felt cleaned but looked greyed out.
