My first night was $60, the second night it jumped to $135 plus tax. They have "free cookies" at check in that I saw a guest come down touch all of... More

I think it's really good for friends or family travel , because the price of hotel is cost- effective, and you have good consumer service. The most important is the location is pretty good it's not far way from Mall and it also close Universal park

We were going to get the shuttle bus to Universal Studios but opted to walk instead which only took 20 minutes. There is a Walgreens, iHop and KFC all along the way although the hotel also has a café and restaurant. The rooms were a great size and really clean. The staff were friendly and we didn't have any issues... More

The staff went all out for us, checking us in early, helping us on numerous occasions, Particularly one at the desk. Anapavia,the front desk clerk, made our whole trip, the hotel is average, a good deal,that's why we stayed there , but the staff make this a great choice!

Good price, clean rooms. Buy the $8 breakfast buffet when you check in.It' s standard basic food (hot and cold), but good if your heading to the theme parks and using the shuttle. They don't charge for parking.
