“Forget about internet access”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

The rooms are much nicer than the Holiday Inn Express Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is just down the street. I had to log into the internet, using the hotel's access info every 3 minutes...literally...so I finally gave up. I had asked the front desk about the internet problems twice and both times, they said they would check on it and call me back...which never happened. The front desk staff were cold.

But if I am in need of a hotel in the area, I would choose this one over the walk of fame HI.

This is the place to be. We were very pleased with our stay at Holiday Inn Express. All the Staff we came in contact with, were all pleasant and helpful. The Hotel location was right off the freeway ramp. The location to Universal Studios & Universal City Walk was great. We had a room reserved for three nights and we found the room to be very roomy and clean.

In the morning, a 'Breakfast Bar' was served in the lobby of the hotel. We were expecting the usual, coffee, juice, sweet rolls, apples, bananas, cereals, etc. What a surprise to see, on a different morning of our stay, scrambled eggs, cheese omelets, biscuits w/gravy, bacon, sausages, toast were also being served. They also had a neat pancake machine that made fresh pancakes right on the spot. I forgot to mention, this Yummy Breakfast, was included in the price of our hotel room.....And yes, I would stay again!

First time staying in Los Angeles I wanted to be near the attractions in the area: Universal Studios, Universal Citywalk, and Warner Brothers Studios. I also wanted to feel safe walking around at night as I was traveling alone (yes, female).

This hotel delivered on location. I got what I need a solo traveler, did not have to worry about finding a place for breakfast (they provide an adequate one even for someone like me who has dietary restrictions) and the rooms were clean.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Jun at the front desk!

We were driving looking for Hotel rooms in Hollywood area. Rate is too much anywhere we go. We passed by this one just adjacent to Universal studio. There is only couple of rooms left w/c is both smoking room. The clerk give us key to both of the rooms to check how bad is
the smell. To our surprise,,,,we didn't notice if this is smoking or non smoking room. We end up staying two nights. What a great service....

Room Tip: ask the clerk if you can check the room first

This Hotel is on the side of freeway but when you get inside the room, it was quiet enough to have a good night sleep. The room is very very clean. It is adjacent to Universal Studio, 2 miles from Hollywood walk of fame.....Call them to have a best deal...

Room Tip: This a small Hotel maybe around 50 rooms. There is no fancy or big lobby but it is quiet even it is...
