Location is really cheap and the place is so convenient. It's less than 5 minutes from the train station. Right opposite the hotel is a shopping mall and there's a 24 hours convenience store right at the hotel. The hotel is 5 minutes to USJ by walking and it's 10 minutes via boat ride to Kaiyukan.

We booked the triple room for four people... plus we had an extra fold out bed, so each person had their own single bed to sleep on, which was great! The Hollywood-esque decor of the hotel was cute. There weren't a lot of special amenities in the hotel... at least not that I was aware of... but the major purpose...
