The room was a nice size and had a coffeemaker with coffee and tea packets. Every morning, there was a continental breakfast in the lobby, which was a nice touch.
This motel had been advertised in the AAA travel book. It stated that the hotel was close to L.A. and Universal Studios. Van Nuys is not the classiest neighborhood, and have you ever driven on L.A.'s freeways? It took 45 minutes to get anywhere. We experienced a small earthquake while we were there, though there was absolutely no damage, which is good.
Overall, the motel was fine, but it is too far away from the attractions.
