We were going to Universal for two days so needed a basic place to stay at a reasonable rate. On that basis this hotel is great. Very friendly staff, free Wifi, within walking distance of restaurants (including a TGI's) as well as a 15 minute walk to Universal and all the restaurants there.
However be warned that the walls are paper thin. We were kept up the first night by someone having their TV up far too loud (but thumbs up to the person on reception who rang them as soon as we complained) while there was also a lot of banging and crashing of doors.
Biggest problem though was the air conditioning. System is very old and if you want it on in your room it will sound like a plane taking off when it comes on every 30 minutes. This kept my wife up for 5 hours on the first night as well. Be warned...
Would I stay here again? Would probably spend a few dollars more and stay at a better chain across the road, but if you are just after basic accommodation then this is fine.
