parking was terrible! this happens when you open up your lot in a prime location to anybody - worst I have ever seen - double parking had guests blocked in so they could not leave! this was reported repeatedly and the staff just laughed - someone should be corrected immediately - will not stay there again

Located in the Vista you are close to numerous excellent restaurants and bars. USC is within a short walk. Staff is helpful and professional. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. I stayed in a room with a king bed and the complimentary wifi was great

Loved it!! I would definitely recommend to anyone planning to stay in this area. Rooms are a bit pricey, but it's worth it. I slept like a baby in the king suite. There is a 12.00 daily parking fee that's a lot--in my opinion. But the room makes up for the size of the investment.
