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

My husband and I stayed here for a week while in LA. The room was spacious and had everything we needed, and the breakfast was perfect to get us started for the day. We bought a tap card to use on the bus and metro which we used daily. The bus stop is a close walk from the motel, as... More

About 10 mins from Hollywood sign, 5 mins from Warner Bros tour. Looks scrubby from the outside but the rooms are so comfy and beautiful.... Just a little too dark- more lighting would be nice. Cute old diner in parking lot was a bonus

I am a fan of Portofino Inn (have stayed 3 times) and here's why: - As other have mentioned, it's not much to look at from the outside, but who cares - Clean, nicely decorated rooms - Real granite countertops and showers - Surprisingly comfortable sheets - Free w-ifi (typical hotel speed) - Breakfast included (nothing exciting, but nice for...

I know the outside looks pretty "blegh", but believe me, this place is amazing. Rooms are so nice, bed was beyond comfortable, and the staff is so friendly. Didn't get a chance to catch the free breakfast, but I'm sure that was amazing, as well. I really enjoyed my stay here, so much that now I find myself trying to... More
