This hotel is a gem. It is perfectly placed for Universal Studios with a free shuttle bus service to and from the attraction. However, the real value is the hotel itself.

Dear Missmosey, We are so proud to have been your first impression of LA! It is great to know you had the opportunity to enjoy our new restaurant The Front Yard and took advantage of our trolley to Universal Studios. Aren’t the Dive-in movies such a wonderful idea?! We look forward to welcome you back next summer.

Overall atmosphere of the hotel is beautiful. Outdoor seating for meals or just sitting and reading. Rooms slightly dated but we spent most of the time outside as the weather is beautiful. Price is reasonable as well for the area.
