Friendly Staff

Had a late checkin (9pm), the room was ready and the staff was friendly. Good value for the money. The decore of the room was dated, but everything was clean and in good shape.

Weekend in Burbank

Very cool hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Went to a 50th anniversary screening of Disney's "Swiss Family Robinson" at Disney studios (close by) sponsored by D23. Drove to Santa Monica pier and beach, only 25 minutes away. Close to everything. Did the Hollywood tour, picked up by shuttle at the hotel. Shops, theater are all close by.

Great Bargain

For the price it was a great value. Free internet, continental breakfast and a great pool. Downside, the hotel is older. The shower curtain was moldy and the towels were stained. My second room was mildewy. It was walking distance to several shopping areas and restaurants. Minutes away from Universal Studios. I will defintely stay there again.

Very Nice Stay

Very lovely and comfortable rooms. Friendly and kind staff. Location is really good if you are in LA for universal studios or six flags. Unbeatable price for that quality.
