We surprised my son with a birthday trip to Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood and just needed a two-night stay. I found Sojourn on Orbitz and crossed my fingers. I also emailed ahead of the visit asking if they could set something up in the room like balloons and how much it would cost. I got a prompt email saying no cost was required and they'd set up something nice. Lo and behold, when we got back from the park, there were balloons, Susie cupcakes, a Nintendo Switch game! and a note signed by all the staff wishing my son a happy birthday. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable, and cozy. I also love that there was extra everything like towels, soaps, and lotions. The location is close driving distance to attractions, too. I recommend it for a short stay on a budget.

Checked in for a 5 night stay by Marabel, who introduced herself as the Head Housekeeper...my 1st thought was 'They cross train here.' It only got better. The motel is an updated older facility that has chosen a 'retro theme' to the 50'-60's. The cleanliness is amazing. Exterior, rooms and the breakfast areas. Even the way the breakfast items are presented assure sanitation is very important and the items were kept re-filled during the breakfast hours. I was most impressed with the staff. In addition with Marabel, we interacted with David, Adrianna, Emily and Erica. This staff has decided to be happy. I never experienced, heard or observed anything except the staff's pleasantness and efficiency, whether it was with a customer or another staff member. Looking forward to visiting you again in the Spring!
