Super location, very clean and quiet. Could have walked to Universal, but free shuttle was great! Bed was a little firm, but overall pleased with this property.

Hard Beds No sleep
I had stayed here several times while they were doing the renovation and had no issues. The rooms were redone nicely and very comfortable beds. Renovation is complete and the beds on the new addition are awful a floor or a board would be more comfortable. Very disappointed and will not stay here again.
