"The hotel was as close to Universal Studios as you can get without staying on the Universal property. The room was large, and the beds were comfortable. No towel racks in the bathroom, so there was nowhere to hang up wet towels. The employees were friendly and accommodating.

"Great location if you're going to Universal Studios, and the price was right. An older hotel. The room was comfortable but showed signs of wear like a leaky ceiling and mold in the bathroom. We had 3 rooms, and none of the safes worked; maintenance couldn't explain why the keys stuck in the locks. The staff was friendly enough, and breakfast was typical.2018-04-17"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
