    Location was amazing for us, right across from universal studios. Was a beautiful hotel and loved the Starbucks in the lobby!

    For the price and star level I expected a little more attention to detail in regards to cleaning of the room/bathroom. The staff was attentive but dirty towels and a dirty shower aren't things I should have to point out as an issue needing to be fixed.

    Location , the Starbucks in the building and secured parking lot

    There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. The blowdryer was melted from the front. I was in a handicap room with the button for the door that did not work. I had a blood stain on my bed sheets. Asked to check out late they told me 12:30 which was amazing but then the cleaning ladies wanted to walk in the room at 10 with out knocking. Out dated a/c system it was super hot most of the time and the hotel was completely booked so couldn't change rooms. For the price I paid I would have expected a better room.

    Great location to Universal and rooms are big. Great restaurants, Starbucks and ice cream place

    The rooms need updating and the bathrooms to. Mold in the sink, bath tub mold around the tiles. Shower curtain was shredded. Sheets had mascara on them and pillows to. We were so tired from the park that we just slept on the top sheets.
