This hotel is gross. It smells as soon as you enter the lobby. Towels line the floor around the malfunctioning ice machines and vending soda machine. The bathroom grout is cracked, messily patched; the ceiling has cracks, holes, and water leak spots; the exhause fan which comes on automatically with the lights is really loud. I ran the water for... More

I have just stayed here for the third year in a row while attending an event at the Orange County Convention Centre. While the hotel is bit dated, the rooms are clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect. The I Drive trolley stops very close by, the hotel offers free shuttles to and from Universal... More

I have stayed here a couple times this year so far and will again in the near future. Hotel was very clean. Staff were very nice and helpful with you everything you needed. There was hot breakfast every morning which was delicious. Hotel prices were low, especially for the area. Everything was perfect. Not to mention just a few miles... More

This hotel has received some bad review and I don't understand why. My stay was extremely pleasant. The room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bedding and towels were very clean. The bathroom was very clean and had plenty of towels and there was hot water at all times. Room had a coffee maker and an... More

Beginning with a positive note, the staff was very good. Beyond this the hotel is dated, in need of attention. The breakfast was not worth it, we ended up at Denny's. The room was ok, and well maintained by staff, but the bathroom fan sounded like a Cessna, the TV remote was missing,etc. we chose this hotel because of proximity... More

I originally booked the room for two queen beds beds, when I arrived the front desk person ERIC said rudely TOO BAD we just have a king bed available,even though I called to confirm my reservation! I will say I am always an understanding person, but Eric was the rudest, most unprofessional front desk clerk I have ever encountered. I... More

So this is a very average hotel and I believe there are plenty of better places to stay. I have to say the pool was nice but other than that, I wouldn't recommend staying here. They did clean the rooms daily but never emptied the trash daily. The rooms are pretty run down and we had a lot of problems... More

We had the suite. It was 2 queen beds or double beds. The sink was separate from the bathroom (love that), the bedroom had a door and was separate from the living room (love that).. The bedroom was big, nice dressers and wardrobe, flat screen tv in both rooms also. The kitchenette which is connected to the living room is... More

I found this hotel at the last minute for $53/night on TripAdvisor... I thought the reviews were pretty mixed, but I didn't really see any horrible pictures, so I decided to check it out for myself. I stayed here for 5 days and 4 nights. When I first arrived, I was slightly disappointed that I could not check in when... More

Adequate hotel for a short stay. Free on site parking, wifi and breakfast is a bonus. Breakfast not bad but a bit of a scramble. We stayed in a 'suite' and the carpet and couches looked a bit sad and in need of a clean. Desk staff friendly and helpful. Pool available but not very inspiring so did not make... More
