Great hotel.Staff is very courteous and helpful.Nice,clean& spacious rooms.Walking distance to Universal Studios.Good breakfast to start your day. You can go to any tourist point in matter of minutes.
Getting out of LA is also easy as close to the Highway.No worry about traffic jams.

Room Tip: Small Hotel so any room is good we stayed on the Third floor.

We chose this hotel because it was the only reasonably priced hotel with 2 Queen beds within walking distance of Universal Studios. Other than that, it's just an OK hotel with plenty of problems: ants in the bathroom, very small pillows, lobby under construction without any bathrooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor on the back side, facing away from the street, for a quiet room.

We spent 5 days at this hotel this week while we visited Hollywood, Universal Studios, Warner Brothers Studios and other surrounding attractions. All in all, an enjoyable experience.

On the plus side, The hotel is decent and quiet, and conveniently located to visit the surrounding attractions. Rooms are ok and clean, the staff friendly and helpful. We had a 2 queen room, and it wasn't cramped. The complimentary breakfast is the standard Choice Hotels selection changing daily from various forms of eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy, bagles, muffins, cereal and a waffle machine. There is a convienience store across the street, and an In-N-Out Burger place a few blocks down Cahuenga Blvd. Although the hotel parking spaces appeared limited, we had no problems getting one even when we came back late.

Although conveniently located, it is a roadside hotel just off the highway so there not much scenery in the surrounding blocks. If you are looking for a hotel with a pool for the kids, this is not for you as their "pool" is no bigger than a hot tub. The lobby still is under construction, making the breakfast area a bit cramped. If there was one improvement I could suggest, it would be to upgrade the pillows. Although plentiful, the pillows were small, about the size of throw pillows and not that much more comfortable.

We stayed here on Aug. 4-5 and found the lobby is going through a remodel, but this was not an inconvenience, as we don't spend time in lobbies. The room was a little nicer than average and the free internet was great. Our room was very clean, and unlike another review, we checked and there was no sign of bed bugs. I don't feel that the hotel deserves a "poor" rating, but average is probably a little too high. The room we were given was on the side of the hotel facing Cahuenga, and the traffic noise at night was terrible. I am sure the other side of the hotel is much quieter. Parking is limited and difficult, and most cars are required to have the keys left behind. We were awakened at 8:00 am by housekeeping wanting to clean the room, which is ridiculous. Unfortunately, there are no "Do Not Disturb" cards to prevent this from happening. Overall, the room price was $50 too high for this quality of hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side away from Cahuenga - traffic noise is terrible and walls are thin.

thank you for staying with us for 2 nights. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectation,
but as you describe your stay you could have ask the front desk on the 2nd night if they have
a room on the other side of the bldg. As of the housekeeping, they start working at 8:30 in the
morning, bed bugs, yes we do not have that, we make sure that our hotel is very clean and as
a consumer also, the price that you mentioned is irrelevant...but make sure, I will use all your
comments to add to our tools to make your next stay with us is pleasant when all our renova-
tion is completely done.

Lobby undergoing complete remodel (was told they were adding a bar??...not sure why?), which we were never told about prior to arrival. Hotel photos on website are therefore way out of date. With construction, lobby bathrooms are closed (which caused problems with a family of 4 staying in one room); limited and cramped seating space for breakfast; and pool area also being worked on (was hit or miss whether or not it was open, and if it was, it looked very unappealing). Hotel water service went completely down one day during our 3 night stay as the contractors must have hit something. Entrance sign has another hotel name hanging right above Clarion name, so I’m wondering if they’re either leaving the chain or being kicked out. WiFi service was horrible (I think you had to be sitting on the toilet to get the best reception). Room was ok, and location not bad, but that’s about it.
