Great hospitality. We really enjoyed our two nights at this little hotel. I loved the charm of what appeard to be a former apartment complex, right out of Karate Kid. After a long day at a local theme park, we were so glad to arrive to a nice welcome at this hotel. What my children enjoyed most was the list... More

We stayed two nights at the MCH and were absolutely blown away by the service!!! We were spoiled rotten from the moment we arrived (which was a few hours before check-in so that we could have drinks by the pool and just relax for a bit). We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area - plenty of nice tables and chairs, shade... More

We stayed at The Magic Castle Hotel the first time in April 2010. Back then we had a superior queen room. The room was OKish but quite small. However, service was awesome! Everyone who worked there, was incredibly nice and helpful. Location was perfect, very close to graumann's. Also a nice distance to Universal studios and TV show taping locations.... More
