“First Impression Quickly Improved”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Our GPS broke en route to the hotel and I called for directions. I was given very little assistance on the phone as well as an incorrect exit, which added about half an hour to our trip. We drove through a much nicer section of town and when we came upon the property we were a bit apprehensive. We were not expecting such a small property with "out" buildings. Also the steep incline to the parking lot and the tiny pool (maximum capacity 10) caught us off guard.

We were given a room in Building C on the main floor. I requested the second floor as I didn't feel particularly secure in the building (the exterior door didn't latch properly) but there wasn't one available. I would definitely get a second floor room as we heard patio doors and people walking most of the night and very early a.m.

Okay, so once we were in, things improved. The parking was fine (and the valet will take care of it if you so desire). As mentioned, the room was a bit noisy but the area itself was quiet. Initially we had issues with the wifi, but the front desk came over right away and set it up. The breakfast was perfectly fine as other reviewers have mentioned. Definitely something for everyone, including a pancake "maker"! Surprisingly, the fitness centre (3 pieces of equipment) was available and 2 out of three machines were working. I always have low expectations in this regard. And the second day my husband and I were able to have a quick swim.

I liked the little touches - the toiletries were good quality, the coffee and fruit or cookies and newspaper available were a bonus. All in all, for the price, the location and the free parking and breakfast, it was good value.

Room Tip: Second floor in buildings - too much noise from the floors above if you're on the main floor.

I loved that they had a valet take care of my car, get it quickly the next morning and load my suitcase. Checking out was easy, they told me to have breakfast, it was nice, but I was in a hurry, grab a coffee. He told me to take a breakfast sandwich with me, that was a surprise and nice. When I checked in, the lady saw I was a little nervous staying alone, and whenI remarked I was unsure of the neighborhood, till I got there. She moved me to a room closer to the office and with a key to get in the facility and my room door, I felt comfy and safe.

Welcoming, caring staff. Comfortable rooms. Great location for parents visiting UCLA students. Love the free valet parking! Makes late night arrivals feel safe when I travel alone, This is a small scale hotel in a primarily residential area. I stay here frequently when visiting UCLA students. Short drive to campus. Be sure to book rooms early during UCLA events like Parents Weekend, Move-in Weekend and Graduation Weekend.

Very nice hotel, friendly service and super location, with easy access to Santa Monica Beach and Hollywood. The check in and check out was particularly efficient. Will stay here again when we return to the area. Thank again!

Spent 6 nights at the hotel with my family including 3 kids ranging from 4 to 11 years old.

Rooms were clean and spacious, big enough for the whole family. There were 2 TVs, one in the bedroom and another in the little living room which included a sofa and exit to the balcony. This living room was great, both for kids watching TV in the morning, and for adult time during the evening! The only slightly negative thing about the room was the air-condition, which was located close to the floor by one of the beds: A lot of cold air straight into the bed making it very cold to be sleeping next to the AC, and also a lot of noise on the balcony due to the AC outlet!

The staff was very positive and always helpful, also nice valet service. Breakfast was complementary, quite simple but there were something for the whole family (toast, bagels, pancakes, yoghurt, sweets, oat meal porridge etc). Free coffee 24/7. In the backyard there was a small pool and a Jacuzzi. Although small, the pool was quite hot and very nice after a long day in LA.

Locating was excellent for us. 10 min ride from Santa Monica/Venice beaches, 15 min to Hollywood and central for freeways going both north/south. Approximately 45 minutes from Disneyland, and little traffic on the way when we left at 830 am. Several good places to eat in walking distance, nice brochure with recommendations found at the hotel.

All in all staying at BW Royal Palace Inn & Suites was a very positive experience and the hotel is highly recommended. Also considering the favorable price, the hotel gets 5 out of 5 and thumbs up from traveling norwegians!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the backyard. A lot of traffic on the front side boulevard, although the noise...

Not the best place I've stayed at but it definitely gives a nice value for the money with good service. The rooms are clean but not that big, the breakfast is nothing special. If you don't expect luxury and travel on a budget, this can be a good fit.
