We orginally had 4 nights booked, here then added an extra night at the beginning of stay. We had requested a non-smoking room, and this room we were given reeked of smoke, and we were assured this was a non-smoking room, we couldn't change room as the hotel was at capacity. Thankfully we were able to change rooms for the last 4 nights, this room was soo much better, no smell and more comfortable beds. The rooms are old, and have marks etc.. in places, but the room was a baragin, compared to rooms in Hollywood & WeHo areas. It's not a bad location either your close to all the Studios, avoid the traffic for Six Flags [further north]. We went to a few concerts aswell, one at the Staples Centre, the other at the Hollywood Bowl, and we just drove to the Universal City Metro Station, parked and took the metro -- easy and avoided all the traffic. Hollywood is only a 5-10mins, if no traffic. Parking was free, and if the lot was full, you could parking at the sister hotel, just across the street, which we used as the lot was full most nights we came home late. Breakfast was free aswell, we had one morning, but there wasn't alot of choice though. Wi-fi was free, we never used the pool, and we had a fridge. Would stay again, probably unless we could get a deal in the city.
