This is an average Residence Inn. Rooms were ok, but the windows dont block the noise from the freeway, the bathroom ventilation sounds like an airpline taking off and the breakast is not beyond decent. NOW, Beware that if you park there your vehicle might be broken into and your stuff will be gone. Parked my Escalade there (they charge... More

Dear Mr. Ovidio, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my apology for a less than perfect stay you had with us recently. Our hotel is located very close to the freeway. When the hotel was built they did triple pane the windows to absord the noise. We are currently reevaluating the windows to see if there is... More

We have stayed in this hotel on 5 separate occassions. It is right off of the I-5 and a short walk to downtown Burbank, which has some nice local restaurants and shopping. More important, the location next to the I-5 makes it easy to hop on and go almost anywhere. Of course, traffic in the area may have other ideas,... More
