When we drove up to this hotel we were a little worried. From the outside it looked a little dated but once we got inside we realized it had been recently renovated. The rooms were updated and clean, with comfortable beds. We booked through a third party site and when we went to check in they didn't have our reservation... More

Stayed here for two nights in mid October. The freshly renovated rooms were accommodating with what seemed to be all new furniture and TV. The room was clean and overall budget friendly. Location was close to outlets across the highway and also close to Universal. Free parking and wifi. Only weird item was the lack of a chair for the... More

The hotel is modern and gorgeous and clean, especially for what would normally be a low end type hotel. It seemed pretty large for having only 2 floors. We specifically asked for a quiet room well ahead of time and the room we were given was attached to another room (not sure if all of them are like this) and... More

Hotel is beautifully decorated with new and contemporary furnishings/decor. We were on a first floor room at the back facing a pond. The only reason I don't give it 5 points is because there was a single bug in our room on the table that appeared after I opened a bag of chips. This is going to happen with ground... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the overall look and feel of the place. The pool was great and the gym was small but very decent. I wished I had time to try Tabla, the restaurant. Only a 20min walk to Universal Studios and a tip is to walk through the carpark as there are travellators almost all the way to... More
