I woke up in the morning only to discover that I had been bitten 5 times by bed bugs. The morning complimentary breakfast has very low quality items. For check in and check out there is only one person who works there and it takes forever to check in and she kept our credit card. You also have to leave...

We've stayed many places and this place is just average. It was a decent and clean room with all the things you need. The view was an alley but I wasn't there for a view. I just needed a place to rest my head before heading back to universal studios. The beds were queen size but not the most comfortable....

I stayed here with my two teenagers for two nights while we visited Universal Studios. There was still a little remodeling going on in the lobby on July 17 and 18, when we stayed there, but it did not cause us any problems. Breakfast was inside (not in parking lot, as mentioned before) and was decent, though a little crowded....

The ONLY redeeming quality of this hotel is that it's the closest lodging (and a 10 minute walk) to Universal Studios. The lobby was under construction so there was no lobby. We had to check in via a movie theater type of window that was in the parking garage. Our room was small and dark. We had a view of...

We booked this hotel because it is just 5mins away from universal studios. At that time it was a holiday inn express. Simple but ok breakfast. Room was good. Air condition was kinda weird, but we survived ;)

We stayed for two nights during our girls' spring break in order to take them to Universal Studios. The hotel staff were very friendly and the desk service was quick. The hotel itself was very nice and clean. Our room was spacious enough for the four of us with two queen beds, a desk, a couple of chairs, dresser, nice...

- No Hot Water. 3 nights. During any/each shower, at best, it would fluctuate between warm and barely warm to cool. One time it just turned completely cold. We told the front desk on the morning of day 2. Late on day 2 we came back, they said it was fixed. Yeah, right … not a chance. - Parking. Limited....

Great little hotel within walking distance of Universal Studios (approx. 10 mins walk). The place is exceptionally clean, the staff are friendly and the beds super comfy. For the location, the price is fantastic, and it includes free parking, free wifi and free breakfast (try the blueberry waffle mix). The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is that...

Great location for Universal Studios, free parking and wifi also resonable rates which is hard to find in this area. Friendly staff and a great free breakfast. Eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit yogurt cereal. Very good value. Rooms nice size.
