My husband and I were looking for a hotel that was close to Universal Studios Hollywood and decided to give this place a shot after reading the reviews. It was only a 10 minute drive to the theme park in traffic and was significantly less than the hotels in the surrounding area. The hotel offered free parking, guaranteed late arrival,... More

Our choice was made by reading other reviews. We were happy with our choice. Our room was not fancy but was clean and the bed comfortable. We had everything we needed & a 7/11 was within walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful as were the other guest that we met on our stay.

From the outside, it is nothing special and I wondered about my choice. But, the rooms are very nice, clean, spacious and remodeled. There was a refrigerator and microwave as well as free wifi. They offered a breakfast in the lobby, but we ate next door at the restaurant. We stayed for 3 days and had no issues or complaints.... More

We took a trip to Burbank in July and had a very tight budget. Portofino Inn is a low cost hotel that is clean and has comfortable beds. The staff are very nice and accommodating. Don't expect a 5 star hotel amenities at this price! They provided free coffee and juice at any hour, and simple breakfast items including fresh... More

On several nights sleep was impossible due to loud drunk persons in the room next door. Management and cleaning personnel alike do not know what the DO NOT... More

I absolutely was amazed how nice and clean the hotel was. The outside looks like a regular cheap hotel, but don't let the outside fool you. The beds are so comfortable and they also offer free breakfast. I love their nut muffins (yummy) I definitely will be booking again when I come back to LA. By the way, it is... More

The hotel is very well located to drive to museums, parks, Warners Bro or others studios, etc. MetroLink is about 1 mile away. The room was spacious and clean with a fridge and microwave. Bathroom was nice. Staff was lovely and helpful. Breakfast was good.

I stayed at the Portofino Inn in Burbank on June 13, 2015. My cousin and I spent the night after a family event. The room was nice, the bed comfortable. We had one problem though, between the two of us we left a nightgown, a cotton slip (these are almost impossible to find) and a magnifying mirror with suction cups... More

This was a middle of the road motel who tries pretty hard. I liked the location, because it wasn't far (15") from Hollywood Blvd, had many nearby good restaurants, including a coffee shop on the facility. We had two breakfasts there, and they were fine. There was plenty of parking. They had just installed a new cable TV system, so... More

We chose the Portofino Inn in Burbank for location and price. Very conveniently located to Warner Brother Studio as well as easy access to downtown LA and Hollywood. The price was great and I would definitely stay here gain. The breakfast is nothing fancy and the Wifi can be a bit finicky but overall, a great value. Rooms are nice... More
