If you are looking for an affordable hotel that is close to Universal Studios and all tourist things in Hollywood, this is the hotel for you. I stayed here with 7 other family members across 3 rooms. The rooms were clean and large and interconnecting. The hotel was so close to Universal Studios and a short drive to Hollywood. Also...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We only stayed at Tilt one night but wanted to write a review anyway due to the fact that it was such a positive experience. From making the reservation to checking out, they made us feel like we were their #1 priority. Rooms were spacious and clean, linens were soft and comfy. All in all, a very positive experience and...

Very nice hotel-clean and quiet. Small indoor pool for our grandchildren to play in. Helpful and friendly staff. Very convenient to Universal Studios-we actually walked to Universal and back (approx. 1 mile each way) by ourselves, but drove up with the kids and parked up there. Within 1 mile of the hotel are 3 good restaurants we went to, kid...

The hotel was clean, quiet and in a great location. We easily walked to and from universal studios each day. Complimentary cocoa, coffee or tea in the lobby, and free popcorn in the evening. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Our only glitch in the trip was a television remote that didn't work and a quick...

I had read reviews before staying at this hotel, but because the prices were more reasonable than the hotels closer to Universal Studios I decided to make a reservation anyway. Would not do so again. They claimed that they were walking distance from Universal Studios City Walk and Theme Park, which yes is true but it is a LONG walk....

We really enjoyed our stay on Thursday, March 2. The room is nicely furnished and very quiet, they have complimentary coffee, tea and cocoa in the lobby and a small coffee maker, microwave and small fridge in the room. Tiny pool, but nice enough to relax. Veronica, at the front desk, was super helpful and super nice! Overall, we had...

We spent a long weekend at the Tilt. Easy to access Universal and BH/Hollywood. I recommend Uber it to/from Universal instead of paying parking rates. Rooms were spacious and comfortable but noisy due to proximity to highway. The rates are pretty decent and for a couple of nights with the kids it was totally fine.

The hotel staff was helpful and answered all my questions. I was able to store my luggage before I checked in as I arrived early in the morning. I was also able to store my luggage after checking out free of charge. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable! If you are looking for a convenient location close...

“We stayed at room 326, very quiet and just a little freeway noise. If you are a light sleeper (like me) you might want to bring ear plugs.”
