Stayed at this fabulous hotel for 3 nights and cannot fault it. From the moment we checked in, the service was excellent. We arrived approx 11am and check in isn't till 2pm but Kamal allowed us to check into our room immediately which was really nice of him seeing as we had just flown a 14 hr flight. The room is basic but practical and everything u need for a budget hotel. Bed is comfortable, free tea and coffee 24 hrs, room has a small bar fridge, free Wi-Fi in room (didn't run too slowly for our time we were on it) room cleaned daily with fresh sheets daily and Kelly at reception could not of gone out of her way to help us anymore with any questions regarding the area or printing of maps etc for us, plus making local phone calls and organising a taxi for us. Fantastic customer service! For little more than $100 a night, this place is a gem. The Mexican restaurant next door serves good meals, reasonably priced and was full each night we walked by it which tells u something about their reputation. Also there is a Thai restaurant further up from motel (Gindi Thai) which again is very reasonably priced and food/service was good. Catching public transport was fairly easy from this motel. To get to Universal Studios we caught the 155 bus which ran from the bus stop just up the road from motel (on same side of road) which costs $1.50 to get to Universal studios (approx 20 min bus ride). We also caught a bus to Hollywood which was bus 222 and that bus stop is located just up the road from motel also (opposite side of road though , near car wash) again that cost $1.50 for bus ride.
There is also a supermarket (Vons) a few blocks away within walking distance and Warner Bros is walking distance from this motel.
Would highly recommend this hotel and anyone who could find more than 1 fault with this hotel would have to be a whinger, as for what you pay per night for a room you get far more.
