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

I was very surprised. Rooms were very nice updated and clean. A very nice place to stay for the price. Outside looked clean and neat as well but inside rooms were very nice. More of a 4 star room. Bed was very comfy. I was pleased and will stay there again.

A basic hotel with no fancy amenities such as pools but good size rooms with a decent desk. Mine was on the first floor street side but from 10-7 it was nice and quiet. Mine had a microwave and mini frig. The included breakfast was basic but adequate: hot drinks, juice, cereal, bagels, toast and some pastries. In the same... More

This appears to be an older property but my room here was an updated standard King room. Granite counter top for the sink and granite enclosure for the shower/bath. Microwave and small refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean. A good value for the money. It favorably compares to Best Western.

I read these reviews before we left, and I agree with most of them. The place is not impressive on the outside, but better on the inside. They've really tried, with deep burgundy carpets, crown molding and dark shiny furniture, including an armoire (so, no closet). But there are those signs--a big burn mark on the carpet, a cigarette stain... More

Great for the price you pay. Rooms are very clean. Decent continental breakfast. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi was pretty strong in our room. The only knock I have on this place is the location. If you have a car (which upon hindsight, we should have rented one) it's not bad. We did Hollywood, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. while we were... More

We were going to see the Tonight Show in Burbank, so we wanted something close to the studio. This hotel seem to be the best in the area for the price. We ended up staying 2 nights, but were more than ready to leave by the 3 day. The rooms had been recently renovated, but they were very small and... More

The service and rudeness at this establishment is incredible. The rooms stinks, the carpet was stained, they charged us an extra $50/ night at the door for a room with a double bed, after i payed in advance with a card, the WiFI repeatedly cut out, and the free breakfast was a joke. Furthermore I was woken up at 9am... More
