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

This hotel was closer to the tourist stuff I wanted to do after a work trip in a nearby city to the north. The hotel was conveniently located, clean and quiet. Recent change in management has brought in some renovations, so it looks like the new crew plans to improve

We stayed 2 nights at the Portofino Inn in Burbank due to a visit planned at Universal Studios which in 10 min drive away in good traffic. Clean and spacious room. We had double sinks in the bedroom itself and a toilet with shower/bathtub seperately. Would recommend to stay un the first floor though as the crickets kept crawling under... More

This place is away from the other hotels. Their is a 7-11 close by. The place is older, but noted a recently painted building. Parking plentiful. Stayed a Saturday night. Price was reasonable @ about $105. Free internet, and parking. Didn't get the included breakfast. The room itself is nice sized. Micro fridge, bed comfortable, I thought that the price... More

I left the Hotel I choose initially, and picked this one. I have to say that although is small, it is comfortable, rooms are well furnished, and include microwave and fridge. Internet is good and free of charge. I will choose this one based on quality/price for my next trip

For a hotel in this budget range, it's passable. Room was clean, location is good. Breakfast is self-service, the owners tend to be very lax topping up. They ran out of tea bags after 2 days and was not replenished by the time we left (stayed there for over a week). Even the juices ran out. Counter staff is rather... More

After our stay, I have a hard time understanding how this place has achieved such a high rating on this and other travel and hotel booking sites. For the price and rating, I thought this was going to be a very well maintained and updated old school motel. The rooms have been completely redone but are not well maintained at... More

We chose this hotel because of the parking and cheap rate. What you see is what you get. The room was clean. Breakfast was small, but better than nothing, The room served the purpose for our family on our way to Universal Studios, which is very close to this hotel. We had a non smoking room.

The location is good. The parking was excellent. The room was large, clean, and quiet. The breakfast was very basic, only cereal and bread, no fruit, eggs, yogurt, meat it even cream for your coffee. Our room (with 2 queen beds) was supplied with 1 washcloth and no hand towels. We left at 9 am and came back at 11... More

After reading multiple reviews, I decided to take a chance on this property, as I needed a cheap place to stay while attending a weekend conference. Very glad that I did! As the other reviews indicate, the exterior is nothing to write home about, but the inside is particularly pleasant and comfortable. The management obviously makes an effort, and it... More
