“Coast Anabelle Hotel, Burbank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I chose this hotel without really going into too much research other than it was pretty reasonably priced although annoyed that the room rate couldn't include breakfast. It was close to Universal and downtown LA. We were thrilled to learn that the hotel had just had a major renovation and we were not disappointed. Our room was huge! The bathroom was amazing with a walk-in wet room shower with jets. The beds were SO comfortable. We ate both nights in the Olive's Bistro as it was easier than heading out after long busy days to try and find somewhere to go. Leanne was our waitress the first night (writing a book and studied Musical Theatre) and Luke our waiter the second night (wardrobe stylist/designer). They were both very attentive, interesting and really added to our enjoyment of both meals. The food was reasonably priced and of a good standard. The hotel has a swimming pool which is situated opposite at the sister hotel - The Safari Inn - a throwback to the 70's! Pool was right by the busy Olive Avenue - a little weird at first but once you got used to it, was ok. Heated and clean with sun loungers. Perfect! Staff were helpful. We booked Universal tickets with the Front Desk. No problems encountered.

Room Tip: We were in Room 350. Top floor overlooking a sun terrace. One King bed, a sofa bed and a rollaway...

The Coast Annabelle has a convenient location to most things that you would want to do in Burbank. I see from comments posted by the hotel in response to other reviews that they are conducting renovations of the guest rooms. Had we not gotten a reduced rate because we were attending a wedding, I would have been upset having paid the regular rate for what I found to be a dated room. Our room, was, however, clean and quiet. We were not at all impressed by Olive restaurant, located in the hotel, which I will post a separate review on. The little hotel bar, on the other hand, is great in the evening if Luke is bar tending. We had great fun in that little bar and that is what made our stay great.

We spent a week at the Coast Anabelle during a recent family vacation and were pleased with our selection. We chose it without knowing much about it other than that the price was reasonable. It turned out that it was near several of our planned outings (The WB studio tour, The Tonight Show) and with a rental car we were able to easily get anywhere from this location.

The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We arrived early for check in and the gal at the front desk told us she could give us an un-renovated room right away, but she recommended that we wait for the staff to clean a renovated room. We used the time to explore downtown Burbank, which has some fun shops and restaurants and a beautiful town hall (see it at night when it is lit up). Glad we waited for the room which was spacious for the four of us and well appointed. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and clean, with crisp white linens and plenty of pillows. Much of the renovation must have been in the bathroom, which had a huge walk-in shower with two shower heads. I always hate hotel towels, but these were thick and a good size.

The hotel shares and outdoor pool with its sister-facility next door, but my kids didn't mind that and swam several times, declaring the pool "great."

The only draw-back we encountered was that we were on the street side of the hotel and were awakened a couple of times by the sounds of sirens on emergency vehicles. Other than that, traffic sounds were easy to ignore.

I definitely recommend this hotel -- it was a good value and a pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room! Also, I would avoid the first floor as there seemed to be loud p...

Great hotel that is close to all the Burbank/Hollywood attractions. The room we got were very clean, spacious and had the really good beds. We got a room facing the street and even that it was the 4th of july we were not disturbed. Service at the front desk was very helpful. There is a small restaurant in the hotel and we did just have breakfast there and it was more than ok.

We stayed here on a trip to Hollywood. This place is great for visiting the Hollywood area. It is only a few minutes away from many attractions like: movie studios, Universal Studios theme park, Hollywood, the Hollywood sign, the Hollywood Bowl, The Getty Museum, and a lot more. We even drove to Disney one day and it wasn't too bad. The hotel is located in a pretty safe area, we walked to a couple of local restaurants and shops. There are not a lot of places to eat real close by but it was no big deal. The place met all of our needs as far as being clean and comfortable.

We have been staying at the Coast Anabelle whenever in Burbank for years and have always had a great experience. The rooms we have stayed in have always been very clean, bright and well maintained. The hotel staff have been very helpful and friendly. We have always found the rooms to be very quiet--a real plus after a busy day in LA!! During our most recent visit we stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms and it was great! Very clean, bright and roomy.

The location of the hotel provides easy access to the studios and tourist attractions. Easy parking at the hotel.

The location was very convenient, but we were booked there for three nights and I deeply regret that. We were put in the room behind the front desk and it is very worn and grungy. The carpet truly felt dirty and the linens were very worn. Maybe, based on the other reviews I've read, there are nicer rooms, but ours was not at all suitable. Could not recommend this hotel.
