Ignore the creepy clown/circus building next door to this hotel. The hotel was very clean & family friendly. They had a nice breakfast buffet. Pool hours should go a little later to accommodate families who want to swim. Overall it was a good hotel for our family and very close to Universal Studios.

Chose this hotel based on its location to Universal Studio, 5 minutes away. More of a motel feel but proved to fit our needs. Staff was wonderful and we loved the hot beverage machine in the lobby offering a variety of coffees, teas and cocoa and the morning pastries. Limited parking so if you have multiple cars, you may have to park on the street. Safe area, walking distance to many eating places. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Refrigerator and self-set combination safe in room but no microwave, although there is one in the lobby. Didn't get to try out the pool but it looked clean and inviting. Rooms were a bit pricey but our stay coincided with Spring Break. Other hotels in the area were much more expensive. Would definitely stay here again if wanting to revisit Universal Studio.

We booked two nights. Both rooms appeared to be clean and comfortable. Until we went to bed. The duvet was absolutely filthy with brown substance (hoping it was just dirt/mud). We thought we could just turn down, but it was on both sides. Not only that the sheets had long, black hairs. It was obvious the sheets had not been changed from previous guest. There were greasy fingerprints all over the bed rails (they're shiny silver). In the other room, the shower nozzle did not work.
I called the front desk. They remedied the situations immediately and in friendly terms. They even offered to compensate with breakfast the next morning. Seemed more of a hindrance than an compensation with the amount of time it took and the lack of service. Then I received my card statement where they charged me $102! I tried calling the hotel manager, but he has refused to return my call.
Oh yeah, and don't forget $78 for valet parking that was never mentioned.

We had a great family vacation at this hotel. The suite with the bunk beds is perfect for kids. The pool area is so pretty and the food was excellent. The staff was top notch. We would definitely go back.

This hotel does not look like much from the outside but has great facilities and a wonderful staff who was very helpful. There are not many choices in that area so if you need a hotel there, don't hesitate to book and get a renovated room if you can.
