Close to Universal, good breakfast, thin walls
Posted Sep 28, 2016
I stayed with a friend here for a weekend with a dog. Love that there are no pet fees! Everyone was nice behind the front counter and quick to answer questions. They have a second separate building, that looks like it used to be its own hotel, and we received a room in that building.
Cons; The doors to the second building didn't always lock, or would lock but the door was open so then it wouldn't close, that was a little bit unnerving. You had to walk from one building to the main one to get breakfast, not a huge deal, but not the most convenient. The walls were very thin, this was only a problem the first night when we heard every drunken guest come in from 12 am to 3 am and with doors slamming and talking down hallways it was hard to sleep, not to mention this apparently woke up our neighbors dog, who would bark, then causing our dog to bark. You could also hear the cars drive by outside.
Pros; super close to the parks, literally a 4 min drive, maybe a 30 min walk if you were really feeling it. Breakfast was good no eggs but waffles, sausage, bagels, fruit etc. Shuttle looked like it was on time. Room was clean, couldn't get the a/c fan to stay on (thought it might help with the noise outside) but it worked well. The floors were laminate which is great because for a pet friendly hotel because there were no lingering smells
All in all a good choice for the money (70/night) compared to other hotels in the area.
