I wasn't allowed to check-in because I couldn't pony up the $250 cash deposit even though the room was paid for weeks in advance. So basically they stole $187.97 from me and I had to sleep in my rental car before sleeping in the airport. I was advised to sleep at a friend's house, which didn't work because I don't... More

Good location, clean, friendly staff. Our room was perfect, we were traveling with kids, so were requested a joining room. Our King Bedded room has a kitchen, which was helpful for us. We had dinner at the patio deck and enjoy the pool. We choose this hotel because were planned to go to the Universal Studios, which was very close.

I really enjoyed this hotel. For being an older and classic hotel, it was updated and very clean. :) Olive's restaurant was absolutely delicious. We had the special for dinner (blackended scallops) and were thoroughly impressed! Breakfast was Ah-mazing, too! Eggs Florentino is highly recommended.

2nd time we stayed at this hotel and loved it just as much. Greeted warmly by every staff member during our stay and room kept very clean. Room was spacious and the fridge was very useful. Pool a warm temperature so it was nice at any time of day. Great position to use as a base to explore different areas... More

Lovely vintage hotel. Staff was amazing and we felt safe and comfortable . Perfect if you are needing an inexpensive place to crash and relax between family outings. Pool was perfect temperature and the grounds felt secure enough to do a little night swimming with the kids under the neon sign that added a unique experience.

This hotel offers zero flexibility in itinerary. If you have to move a reservation by one day (even if that day is over a month away) you will have to pay a full rate for the change. I tried to change a reservation 1 day after I made it, regarding a date a month away. They had already charged me... More

I gave this a low review simply because for what they charge for a room and what they offer you can get a lot better hotel. I was charged 169.99 one night and the next 179.99 which is way to much for this type of hotel. If it would have been about $80.00-$90.00 that would be about all it's worth.... More
