“OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This Days Inn is conveniently located just off the 134 freeway. It's big, with several floors. I stayed on the top floor in a decent room with a small balcony. Parking at the hotel itself is extremely limited, but there is a large lot across the street. It would have been nice if I'd been informed of this parking area when I checked in; it took me a few minutes to discover it. There is a loading/unloading area at the front door, so even if you park across the street you don't have to carry your luggage very far. The rate was reasonable for an urban property. Staff was OK, but it seemed that they did a lot of chatting with each other when they might have been paying more attention to their guests at the desk. The Inn does not serve breakfast, but there is a connecting restaurant where I had a decent breakfast at a low price. I would return to this place even though I wasn't enamored with it.

The energy in the hallway's seems as if there are realms of paranormal entities roaming...
The staff and contractors are disrespectful and unfriendly. Thru some of the windows on the first floor, you can see the filth stacked up to the roof, created by what seems to be hoarding disorder.. Untidy individuals that don't seem to think there's anything wrong with their situation at all...In attempt to consume the awful smell in the hallways, the staff sprays several different aromas which intern give myself and others allergies and asthma attacks.. I personally witnessed some complain frequently about nasal allergies/reactions caused by the different smells that are being sprayed there but the hotel staff, Intending to cover the smell that inevitably will not go away. These potent chemicals that are being used there by staff can and will harm the respiratory system, and are toxic, which in the long term effects cause birth defects, toxic reactions, cancer, and or death..
Front desk is 100% well aware or the unbearable, uncirculated, unfiltered old cigarette smoke smell situation.. They initially offered three different key's for us to try out, so that we could pick out the room that smelled the best out of all three.. All three of the rooms smelled absolutely disgusting of old smoke in beaded into the wallpaper from years of miss managing and terrible servicing of these individual room.. A perfect example of an issue left unresolved for years in this case.. The health department needs to take a closer look at this place and act accordingly...

Instantly gave me a chronic asthma attack!! which I was able to control with my inhaler immediately after having to remove myself from these rooms.. I suffer from sever asthma attacks and extreme sensitivity to smells & allergies from childhood... finally we picked a room..
well, to make things worse, earlier that morning, the front desk clerks forgot to run my card for the $50 Dollar pet deposit, which resulted in my room cards to get turned off! Now my inhaler was locked inside the room, along with all of my important medication, and apparatuses i use incase of any medical emergency or if any sudden attack should occur, It can be treated accordingly, but No, they shut me out.. So, unfortunately the strong smell of "old smoke, fabreez, and fecal matter" affected my breathing immediately, as i was coming from the elevator on my way in to the room.. As a result, my sever Asthma Attack had to be prolonged and I had to drive counting my last breath praying asking god to help me cause I thought that i was gonna collapse from lack of oxygen to my brain.. Luckily there was a nearby pharmacy where i was able to refill my Inhaler instantly.. Yet, off course, They cutoff accesses to my room key's without warning, or heads up or a simple courtesy call, which by the way, "the room phone was not working", but, the least they could have done was sent some one up to give us a friendly reminder or a letter under our door to inform us of the issue, and advising us to stop by the front desk office.. A simple request to provide the proper authorization resolving the inconvenient issue caused by (the front desk).. An act of negligence and careless behavior,
Immediately resulted in the most unnecessary, unwanted, sequence of life threatening events that could have been prevented by simply thinking about the well being of the guest or guest's..
Yet they decided to prevent accesses by shutting off our room keys card's thinking that once again this may grab their attention, that maybe then this manipulative act will force them to come forward and submit the authorization to collect a pet deposit.. they truly thought this might be a prudent way to get one's attention.. Wow..

THEY CHARGED MY CARD AFTER STRICTLY ADVISING THEM "NOT TO".. $114.00

Room Tip: Stay Away Please, You'll Regret It 100% Health Hazard! Keep Away!

This place is great it is close to the Glendale Galleria, and that place is full of so many things to do. The hotel it self is great for the rate paid. The rooms are clean and a pretty good size. Every room has its own balcony, which is great for when you just want to relax for a bit. It also has a pool that is very clean. The staff there is marvelous. They were very helpful with directions and seemed eager to help. I felt very comfortable here. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip.

Hotel was Great. Manager (Rob) was very accomodating to us traveling with the whole family.
Location is central to all the places we were visiting at the time, plus since we had friends in the area nearby it helped that we had a hotel so close to the freeway giving us a quick route to our own rooms to relax and unwind after a long day with the family.
Stayed here a few times and it never fails to meet our expectations of comfort, convenience, and cost.

We stayed at this property in March, 2012 primarily because of its close proximity to Universal Studios - Hollywood and in part due to its five sunbursts rating. The lobby was big and inviting but very bland. Not an issue. The room was spacious and the pillows were great and soft but the beds were hard and uncomfortable. the carpet had a big stain in the middle of the living area. It really could have been cleaned up with an indutrial grade steam cleaner. The staff was okay, personally I do not think that the desk clerk should be allowed to be sporting piercings in each cheek. I just do not think that looks professional.

At check-out time in the morning at about 8:00am when we went to the lobby we had to wait at an empty desk since the on duty clerk was making her coffee in the back; even she arrived to the desk she told another clerk bring her coffee to her. One key thing to keep in mind for the next traveler is that the hotel automatically charges you for the safe in the room per day $1.50 plus $.15 tax whether or not you used it. I found this out the hard way and called the hotel later on that night (the same day as my check-out). I spoke to a female named Miriam, when I asked her why was I charged, instead of an explanation she told me that if I want it to be taken off I need to call "ACCOUNTING" the next morning. I asked her if she could do it now and she said that since I did not ask for it to be taken off at check-out I now had to wait and speak to accounting the next morning.

No Thank You, I understand that it is a small amount but it just seemed to be a matter of principle. It appears that the hotel uses this to boost its revenue. Nonetheless, I do not have the time to call and wait on the phone to speak to accounting for a grand total of $1.65. Besides that the hotel was okay for our needs and also in close proximity to food and gas locations as well.

Room Tip: For reasons unknown to me, the main parking area in the front of the hotel has a very unusual extra...

The staff here are really what the 5 stars are for. They have to work with a hotel that has seen better days, but the level of service is similar to what you would find in a 4 star hotel. They are cheerful, attentive and professional. The general manager upgraded us when we asked to change rooms, which meant we had a fridge and microwave for our week-long stay. It made a big difference to us. Jaqueline was very bright and anticipated our needs in a way that made her seem almost prescient. We were there on a very tight budget, and it was just wonderful to be looked after with such intelligence.
