Disliked: Staff & service
Most sockets did not work. Where they serve breakfast there would be no one to take your order and when you would ask a staff member they would give you attitude because they did not work that area. Once the person came to take your order the food was horrible. Will not return there.

We stayed friday-sunday. The outside of the hotel is a little rundown looking but the inside is updated and clean. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. The hotel is a 22 minute walk to Universal City Walk which was an added bonus. My only complaint is that we arrived at the hotel Saturday night at 3am and there was NO parking anywhere!! We drove around the hotel a few times until we saw someone leaving and were able to get a spot without risking getting a ticket.

AC could not keep the room cool despite putting it on 66 degrees. Property could have complained but we didn't spent much time in the room. The building have been renovated so that's a plus but the room are really small. The staff was good and the location was pretty awesome.
