We made the reservation here to attend a couple shows at universal. Upon arrival I felt like maybe I had made a mistake. Their is construction all around the area. This is an older style hotel, what I would call a motel with outside entry doors. I was pleasantly surprised. The entire place has been renovated. Room was very nice...

We came here after a horrible experience at another hotel. It was clean, safe, remodeled. The pool area was amazing. We were hoping the pool bar was open, but it wasn't. We weren't upset. It was cooler and we are from North Dakota, so we're just glad it wasn't -40. We will definitely be back.

Stayed here only one night on a trip to see some spring training with a buddy. This was an incredibly nice Clarion- rooms recently renovated with new bedding, furniture, carpet, paint. It's not a four star hotel but this is a solid three-star hotel and walking distance from Universal if you are in town for that.

The hotel (more like a motel) is very close to Universal Studios and that's the main reason why we booked it. Overall a good option if you're visiting the area.

Stayed with my family for two days in the room with one king size bed. The best merit of this hotel is the location of it. If you take a taxi, it takes just 5 min to the Universal studio. The rate was quite reasonable and the room condition was perfect. It has a refrigerator and a heater so that...
