Nice Room

The location was not that close to Universal Studios; it was in a somewhat rundown neighborhood. However, the hotel was fairly nice, the staff was very friendly and helpful.

Hollywood Esperience

Closeness to Universal Studio is debateable. However the location to access places in Hollywood is great. A short walk to the Metro station provides accessibility. A free shuttle takes you to the Universal Studio. Complimentary breakfast was good and staff very friendly. Reasonably priced.

One night hotel stay

Passing through for one night so the experience wasn't a big deal, but the quality left a lot to be desired. The bed was overly firm, tiles in the bathroom were cracked, water wasn't hot enough most of the time, staff was friendly, for some reason you can't bring any food whatsoever from the continental breakfast to your room which was a little frustrating since the other person in my party couldn't make it downstairs and I hadn't encountered that problem before. Just passing through, but wouldn't return.

Rude staff great room other then no AC

The staff was very rude and short upon checking. The room was beautiful, update and very clean. When asking a question instead of taking the time to answer it for me the staff member turned a sign my way and pointed at it acting as if it was to hard to answer. Other then the rude staff and lack of attention to details such as paying 16$ a day for parking on the premises I enjoyed my stay.

Affordable, really?

This hotel does not state in advance that they charge $16.00 to park your rental car. The phone charges are at a rate of operated assisted, not just to dial out. I feel that this is hidden charges that should be stated up front. It is not a $63 room, but a $79 room, as you can not get around LA without a car. The spaces were tiny and did not allow for the car door to open.

Disappointed

It was noisy. The room was small. The staff was not friendly. Staf was either not knowledgeable or could not be bothered. No resturant for lunch & dinner. Given the location, I did not feel safe going out after dark. Having room service or a resturant would be nice. There were ants in the bathroom. You need to look at the Guest Notebook and read what one of your employees has written about working there. I would not go back there.
