This facility is nowhere near the description on their website. We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay for a guys weekend, although we did expect more than a run down 50's style motel, especially for the price we paid. This is the chance you take when booking on-line and relying on websites to give a legitimate description of... More

The staff is caring and attentive but I get the since that they are also protective of the property...! The rooms are a little small but clean and modern! The WiFi is good and the housekeeping does a very good job at cleaning after you!!! I liked the coziness and the privacy of the property and the drive to your... More

This hotel is not worth anything over $40! And it is no where near universal! There is no continental breakfast just Tampica Juice and dollar store cookies. Rooms are dirty and beds are really uncomfortable...

I'll start off by saying I was glad we read the reviews first before we walked into our room. It gave us a sense of humor which would have been otherwise lacking. We had to stay here on New Years because everything else was full (our own fault). I felt the price of $200 was way too high considering the... More

Not such a good experience. Housekeeping was bad, they forgot to leave toilet paper and they also forgot the remote control for the TV, the toilet clogged, they had to transfer me to another room which had cockroaches.

The place is a little worn around the edges, but the manager really tries to give people a comfortable stay whilst in LA and the price is really reasonable. Like others have said, it is very near Universal Studios and the Hollywood sign. Sure, some of the guests are undesirables and the bed is a little firm, but so what.... More

Perfect for a trip to Universal Studios, as it's directly across the street & has a tram to go there every 15 minutes! Pool was very nice, a little slippery when walking around, but very clean! The pool staff was amazing & hard working. Room was clean & comfortable :)

I had a horrible experience. I didn't think I can stay there anymore than 10 minutes. No phone, free wifi, yea when it's available. No clock or iron. Beds were uncomfortable. Room smelled. Here's the good thing, if it's one night you may get through it if you're gone most of the day. It's 5-7 minutes away from Universal Studios,... More

Don't waste your money here! We needed a quick overnight to go to Universal Studios the following morning. We checked in very late in the evening and left early morning... believe me that was too long of a stay! It cost $125 plus tax & fees (a rip off).... That is a ridiculous price for what they delivered; extremely dated... More
