Good hotel with good size rooms. The location is near Universal and you can walk it from the hotel (Hotel offers free car parking) but its about 20mins and uphill. Bit of a killer before you spend all day on your feet in lines waiting for rides...
Breakfast is the usual Holiday Inn breakfast. Like most hotels I stayed in while touring California, you have to eat of plastic plates and use plastic cutlery. Does have an automatic pancake machine which is nice :o)
We stayed in a twin (2 beds) and the room was very good size. We did have a maid walk into our room in the early morning which was a shock to wake up to. The hotel is located near a busy freeway, but we didnt hear it.
Compared to the Hilton and the Sheraton, this is much better value for money and ideal if you are visiting Universal Studios.
The Manager was very helpful and accomodating. Also offers Free Wifi. I would stay here again if I was visiting Universal Studios.
