Other than than the front sign needing a little paint, that's about the only non-positive thing I can say about the place. It is technically a motel since the rooms open to the parking lot and there are no inside corridors, but going from your room to your car any time is not an issue as it is in a very safe, well patrolled mostly residential part of town. Also, after assurances about the neighborhood from the front desk staff, we walked to a restaurant a mile away fairly late at night and did not feel uncomfortable at all. The rooms were clean and immaculate with high-quality body wash and shampoo dispensers in the shower. Good pressure and as much hot water as you wanted, and the shower/plumbing was quiet in the other room (when others were sleeping), especially with the door closed. We have been in some expensive places that were *very* noisy whenever another room ran water. The refrigerator was very cold after we turned the thermostat down. Contrary to what some others have said, we heard no street noise at all in our rooms at night. Both a maid and front desk clerk offered assistance unrequested when we had a minor issue figuring out our door keys, and when I tried to get to the sun deck before it was actually open! One thing I will warn you about are the two double beds. My wife and I normally sleep in a king at home and do not have a problem with a queen if necessary when travelling. Our son was with us so we got the two doubles, he took one and we found they are just a bit too small for two - for us, anyway. Certainly not the hotel's fault, but be aware. No issues with the free wireless internet. 5 to 10 minute drive to Universal studios. Pool was clean. Exercise room and laundry looked okay but did not use them. There is a microwave in the laundry if you want to make some popcorn, etc. Flat screen TV not overly impressive, but we didn't really go there to watch TV. Bottom line - we will be back!
