The staff was very nice however I think that there seems to be a water problem in the building. The first room had mold all over the bed skirt. We were promptly moved to a larger room at no additional charge. In the second room the exhaust fan had water dripping from it the whole time and the last day the exhaust fan fell out and it revealed a unit completely covered in dust and dirt. This is also the first Best Western that they charged a significant amount of money for what is usually the free breakfast.
Pros: The pool area was nice.
Cons:

This looks very tropical and fits the vacation feeling, yet it is a bit on the low-taste side. The room is not particularly good, and I would expect a little more from BW. Things seems to wear out quite a bit and is not particularly comfortable. The staff was fine, but not particularly helpful.
Pros: Location
Cons: Room furnishing

It's a really awesome and beautiful hotel with modern equipment including gym and restaurant.
Pros: Amazing location with Pool, room service, basket ball and tennis courts.

Pros: Proximity to Universal Studios. Free parking. Nice Pool, and great lobby.
Cons: The rooms are moist, at best. The whole building needs a new air system. Also, we were promised three rooms, each with a king or two queen beds, and one room was only a full bed. One room was ignored by the cleaning staff, as well
