This property is old and run down and not maintained to the standard that is claimed. I prepaid for a 2.5 star hotel by a popular "Travel Web Site" and was assigned this property. This hotel hotel should not rate a 1 star. Some of the things we encountered were: 1) unfriendly hotel staff 2) outdated room with bad staining...

Good. Nice. Good location. Cleaning the bathroom is not good specially the shower hub. Also the linen are not clean as they don't change them. Price is good. Has breakfast. You can say you get what you paid for. Staff are helpful. Many restaurants nearby.

I'm giving this hotel an average rating for pretty much one reason only- it's proximity to Universal Studios. If not for that, I would rate it poor. The hotel is a little less than a mile from Universal Studios. We walked to the park every day (we took a cab back - $6.60). The walk was easy and actually quite...

I wish I could leave the rating section empty because this Hotel deserves a big fat 0. Absolutely horrific stay. Checking in the staff were decent but unimpressive. But that wad the least of my worries as I didn't feel safe at all. The doors to go to into the building never seemed to work. We finally found one that...
