“Lovely staff..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this tidy hotel - it is a stones throw from Universal Studios Hollywood and City Walks with the free shuttle to and from these busy spots being very handy! Friendly, helpful staff were able to recommend other things to do / places to go in the local area and helped organise an airport transfer without fuss. We made use of the onsite bar/restaurant too which was fine. Slept very well although some may find the noise from the nearby freeway a bit much - if you don't mind that though this is a good find.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I stayed here in October 2011 with my partner and 2 kids. We stayed in the Queen Kid Suite, which had a small cordoned off area with bunks for the kids, and a Queen bed. It was small and tired, the air-conditioner was so loud we couldn't sleep with it on (and there was a heatwave) and the walls were VERY thin, which could have been very embarrassing if the neighbours had woken up my children, as they did me! The room service meal we had was atrocious and the bathroom was tiny and tired. Having said that, for the price and the location it was good value. It had a fridge and for 2 nights (we were pretty much only there to sleep anyway) it was fine. The pool area was lovely, Tula's restaurant was great and the staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly.

Very close to Universal Studios Hollywood! I found the free hotel shuttle to the park very convenient. The hotel lounge has a terrific happy hour (even weekends!) with 50% off the bar menu for food! Excellent presentation of the food and it was very tasty. Overall, the hotel has beautiful landscaped grounds and most importantly well maintained! Very attentive staff regarding cleanliness. My room was a little small and noisy due to the nearby freeway, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons at this hotel.

If you are traveling anywhere near Universal.Hollywood are, this is the place to stay. Everything from the front desk staff to the rooms were amazing. We stayed there with our family of 5. We were greeted and treated like we were staying at a 5 star hotel. They were very accomodating. The room itself was more resort-style than hotel style. Very spacious with a large, very comfortable bed, luxury sheets and bedding, pillows, etc. There was a sofa bed in the room and a very nice desk and closet with shelves. The hotel staff anticipated our needs and had a roll away bed waiting for us in the room without us even having to ask. The breakfast buffet was tasty. The room also had a microwave and fridge, which comes in handy. I did a lot of searching before I chose this hotel and I am VERY glad I did. We will be back!

Convenient location: near Hollywood attractions, close to City Walk and Universal Studios (the hotel offers complimentary scheduled shuttles to Universal Studios), but you need to use a car to go everywhere. You can buy tickets to the park in a store located off the lobby. Very large parking lot. Bellman always available (very nice guys). Cordial and helpful staff. Room: Holiday Inn standard, clean, not large, OK. Bathroom: clean, OK. High: room service; very efficient; we needed to keep a medicine cooled, so they installed a small refrigerator in the room just after requesting. Low: atmosphere, ambiance in the floors (rooms’ corridor); cold, not welcoming, a little bit dark (remembering some haunted buildings in horror movies). In general, an average, not special stay, without problems, though.

First hotel booked as a package for our four week trip to America. Probably shouldn't have left it to the tour operator! Not the best placed hotel, an hour away from the Airport and 30 minutes from LA central and amenities apart from Universal studios.
