“Quiet and trendy”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The hotel was very quaint, the staff was super friendly, the room was clean and it was quiet. We enjoyed the complimentary coffee/tea station. It was an added perk. It was quite close to Universal Studios and Dodger Stadium.

Stayed here based on Trip Advisor rating and location near Universal and other attractions. Liked the free parking (but it is tight). Juno at the desk was very friendly and helped us order and print our Universal tickets. The Porto pastries and hot beverage machine were very good for breakfast or an evening cappuccino. While our room was clean, it still had the feel of an old motel. The bathroom faucet was loose and the toilet was virtually touching the tub. Great neighborhood near good restaurants.

I chose this hotel because of the location (excellent, 10 min drive to Universal studios), and the . nightly rate (better than the nearby chain hotel). The interior of the hotel room is upbeat, indeed retro chic, with well placed shelves and cabinets for our stuffs. Pastries from Porto's are fresh. If they could add fresh bananas or apples, that would be a nice complement.... Juno in front desk is very helpful. Lots of restaurants nearby.... Negative: parking is tight, but there are available spaces in the surrounding streets per my driver/husband.
Overall-- agree with it's rating: number 1 in Tripadvisor.

My husband and I went to CA for our vacation, and loved this hotel. Amazing rate (the chain hotel close to us was $30 more a night), amazing service, great breakfast pastries, and quirky room decor. Worth your money and time. We will definitely stay here again.

We have arrived early and the room was ready. Service was way beyond other famous networks. Room was clean and beautiful. Coffee and other hot and cold drinks are complementary 24h which is great. Will definitely return when in the area.

If you like old cars then come on Fridays to enjoy the old cars gathering at a nearby restaurant which was amazing.

Room Tip: Lower floor when car nearby is great.

I was worried about the hotel since I mainly stay in your typical hotel brands. I was nicely surprised. The rooms had been nicely redone. Its just a quaint hotel. The only complaint I had was the air condition. It was hot and it was a small window type unit that didn't but out much even on high. There is also not allot of parking. The breakfast is just pastries but they are wonderful. The hotel was clean and in a good location.

We stayed two nights in July 2014. We were able to park close to our unit. The beds were comfortable and large, the bathroom well set up. The decorated wall took the unit above the ordinary and after staying in huge multistory hotels for a week it was great to able to open the door and step outside.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and we had lots of questions from the nearest Post Office, to parking at Universal Studios to the more usual dinner recommendations. We loved the morning pastries and it was the best cup of tea I'd had while travelling.
