The parking I didn’t care for. The front desk lady was rude and when I got our room our tv was on. Floor was dirty.

The hotel staff was great, for the most part. I was scheduled to stay at this hotel for one week but checked out the day after I checked in. It was beyond disappointing to get to my room to find an unflushed toilet, which turned out to be clogged, stains on the walls, lampshade, shower curtain (GROSS), doors, and a hole in the ceiling. I asked to be changed to another room and was told they were completely booked. I found that hard to believe but hey, it was what it was. No one asked me why I was checking out early. Upon checking out the next day, I checked into a better quality hotel less than 5 minutes away and was completely satisfied. I will never stay at the BLVD Hotel & Spa again and certainly do not recommend it for anyone else to stay. An extremely disappointing experience.

Ok this is technically walking distance to Universal but you have to walk through skid row and homeless. Not safe or good area with young kids. At all. Plus you walk to a tram, then it takes you to employee gate, then you walk to main entrance. No one told me anything- no information out there.

The property looks like it’s nice in pictures, but is the most absolute filthiest place I’ve ever stayed. I had to purchase flip flops to shower in.

Great location. The drain in the shower was broken.

None of the amenities were available as advertised and welcoming receptionist was rude and down right no customer service at all, she is the Incounter and we question the extra charges She had no patients for Customercare and truly deserve to be fired but she treated to refuse us at late at night, telling us to go somewhere else.#it’s late at night We were in a group of 7 to 10 and we told the rest of our party to go to another hotel just because of your staff you lost businesses because of her She needs to be reprimanded, we are planning a another trip, based on the out come. We will make any further reservation Please respond # reporting to the BBB Un satisfied customers

I liked the room. We arrived early and our room was not ready. However, they upgraded us to a suite. Nice. Given the COVID-19 restrictions, it would have been nice to have the room cleaned on a daily basis, and to not have the bar area open was a little inconvenient. But, it was understandable given the situation.

Great customer service respect to all customers who is

Service was terrible, rooms were cold, walls were thin, bed was harder than a rock, amenities/appliances were slow to start in the room, hallway noise level was like a terrible concert, smell of weed in the building. Will never stay here again. I've traveled the world and never left a review on a hotel before, this one warranted it. Sorry not sorry for being a Karen.

It was well within walking distance of the park and there was shuttle service from the NBC plaza directly to the main gate.

Excellent location. Short walk to the Universal Studios shuttle, groceries, restaurants, etc. Huge room with sitting area, 2 TV's. Minor issues: not enough coffee & towels for the room, but very fast service to remedy these. Overall excellent value for the price.

Beautiful, large rooms. Free drink at happy hour and walking distance to Universal. We will stay here again.

Nice place walking distance or cheap Uber ride to universal

No curtains on windows Freeway noise Street noise Hotel guests noisy

This hotel felt safe and happy which made my trip very enjoyable. Being so close to the Universal shuttle was great!
