If you are searching for a quiet, safe, and secure hotel that is close to universal studios this is the place! Very helpful and kind staff. Without a doubt felt welcomed, we were greeted as soon a we walked in! We were offered cold water, we were walked to our room. Robert (Manger) walked us to our room, checked the room first making sure everything was clean ready for our arrival. Definitely a place i’d go back to! * Parking is right outside your room * Clean restrooms/Shower * Overall clean room * 6 Minutes away from Universal Studios * Respectful Staff

This was the most amazing hotel I have stayed in! El royal was an incredible stay that made you feel very far from LA the property was gorgeous and covered with beautiful flowered and a little hidden which we loved because it brought a warm and safe feeling. Pictures do not do this place justice. Next time I’m in the area I will for sure be staying again. The customer service we experienced was incredible as well! We were treated like friends and felt very comfortable. Although they were not able to offer a continental breakfast they did their best by offering a granola bar for the road, this alone shows how generous and kind the employees were. 10/10 would definitely be back ☺️ Also, the park is 4 minutes away which made this gem even more of a steal of a deal !!!
