We travelled here after Santa Monica to be closer to Universal Studios as we had a 2 day ticket and thought it would be nice to stay instead of travelling for 45 mins every morning. This place was great! The staff were so friendly and helpful. The helped us print out park tickets and book taxi's. There's a free tea...

Hotel room was nice and clean, but the type of people that were staying here would not be classified as being family friendly. The first night we stayed, we could hear a couple yelling at each other super belligerently across the hall. We called the front desk more so because we were concerned about the girl, and we were told...

On behalf of my staff I apologize for not following up regarding the noises properly that were occurring during your stay. We should have handle it differently. I will take this information and speak to the front desk about it.

Mixed feelings on this hotel! We stayed on top floor room 325. Pros; Location for universal is perfect! 10 min walk and you're in the park; room was clean; tv had lots of channels, room had a fridge. Cons; On days when we weren't in universal the location is not great, we got the bus 222 outside the door to...

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...

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...

Thank you for the great comments about our staff! I'm glad we gave your family great customer service. I do apologize for the issue with the TV and the remote. We hope to see you again back here at the Tilt Hotel.

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 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.”
