Found a great deal in one of the bargain sites but did not have high expectation after reading some of the reviews here. However, our stay turned out to be a nice one. Our room was located right at the end of the hallway so we had almost zero noise during the night. The bed and bathroom were standard but the important part is they were clean. Complimentary shuttle bus to Universal Studio was definitely a big bonus - less than 10 min. bus ride. The price of the food and drink was fairly expensive but there are Walgreen and KFC just 5 minutes walk from the hotel so we did not have any problem.
They did take some time to check us in because they only had one person in the front desk although it wasn't that late, but check out was no hassle.
