"Excellent hotel for the money. We stayed for 2 nights in a king suite. First of all, this location is absolutely fantastic, just 15 minutes Uber / Lyft ride for universal studio for about $10. Also many restaurants and grocery in walking distance. The hotel itself is an older property but quite clean and spacious. It appears well maintained overall. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Our room was really big and the single window ac was not as sufficient for the hot afternoon, but the staff provided a nice pedestal fan to help out. Also they waived parking fee for Agoda booking. One minus was exhaust fan in bath not working but I’m sure they would have fixed if we complained. Overall a pleasant stay, would recommend."

"Universal Studios is a very easy 10 min walk away. That's the primary reason I booked. The hotel itself is simple but great value for money for a 3 star hotel. The rooms are very big, bathrooms are modern, beds are super comfy, and room cleaning service is top notch. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Can't fault it. The only thing I wish it had was an in-house restaurant for breakfast and light dinner, but they do have a small take-away shop on ground floor for simple stuff like sandwiches, fruits and juices. Besides being close to Universal Studios, it's also near the trian station which takes you to Hollywood (one stop) or central Union Station (35 mins). Taxi to airport was about USD$70. Would stay again when returning to Universal.. and go on the Harry Potter ride, it's the best!"
