Very quiet area and super close to Universal Studios Hollywood. We were able to walk to the tram station for Universal from the hotel. There was also a grocery store, drug store and Starbucks within walking distance.

This is a great place to stay after a day of fun and sightseeing. It is NOT a place for night life partiers who want to come and go as they please and have a crash pad. I love the fact that they were like little cottages with an old Hollywood feel. And that they locked the gate at midnight, I felt entirely safe! The 2 guys who run it were super professional. One wears sunglasses at night, didnt ask why, not my business! One patrols the property. I didnt find this the least bit sketchy. In fact, i felt more safe.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
I didn't realize that this place was just a roadside motel. We stayed at "El Royale Gardens", which is the motel next to the main "El Royal Hotel". We stayed out until almost midnight on the first night of our stay, and there were cones blocking the driveway. I had to get out of my car in an unsafe spot to move the cones out of my way so I could drive into the parking lot. We left for about four hours and our room wasn't cleaned. When we wanted to check out there was no one at the front desk. And the worst part of it was - there were ants in our room. I told the person who (finally) checked us out that there were ants, and he said, "are they relatives of yours?" Very funny. He didn't apologize or say anything else about it. I will NEVER stay at this "hotel" again.

Staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The two gentlemen were attentive and prompt at checking us in. They made sure our room was ready for us. The next morning as we were checking out they gave us a treat for the road and wished us a safe trip. This was a very nice place to stay and enjoy Universal Studios within walking distance. Will definitely stay here again!!!

Great hotel if you want a safe, clean property at a good price. Cheaper than other options in the area, with your own private cottage, personal parking, and kind staff. The room was clean and comfortable with plenty of TV channels for your late night surfing. Would highly recommend as it's at a better price than many other's in the area and was an enjoyable stay only minutes from Universal Studios, west hollywood, and other key areas!

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Very small room & odd configuration. No table between beds, no lamp next to one bed. Electrical outlets limited and no extension cords available. Room is in excellent condition and has been carefully remodeled, but there is only so much you can do with such a small, odd configuration. Lots of road noise. Overgrown bougainvillea partially blocking ramp to room door. A number of restaurants are in walking distance including a very good sushi place across the street. Quick, beautiful drive to Beverly Hills through Laural Canyon.
