We stayed at the Residence Inn in Burbank in for 4 nights over the summer and used it as a home base for day trips to Magic Mountain and Universal Studios. We had a terrific stay and very much appreciated the 2 bedroom suite with full kitchen, multiple TVs and 2 full bathrooms. Our children, 11 and 12, shared one... More

All our other Residence Inn stays have always been 5 stars. There's only a couple reasons for a slight downgrade: we didn't think the food quality at breakfast was as good, and didn't like having to use styrofoam plates, plastic tableware, and paper cups. Other R.I.'s have had ceramic plates/cups and real silverware. When we first got there, there were... More

The hotel was very clean, the room was fantastic. We loved the free happy hour. It was more than just beer and wine. They also had sandwiches and salads. The free breakfast was also great. The hotel has great nearby restaurants and it was a quick drive to Universal Studios Hollywood!

Good sleeping quality and comfortable bed. Front desk not very atttentive and I got the impression they were not very professional or new in the job. I wonder why they removed soap, half-used bottles of shampoo etc. and replaced with new, while I still could have used the old ones. Not good for the environment. There is a parking garage... More

A very good hotel. Visited with family for two nights in April. A very clean and efficient hotel with attentive staff. A free buffet style breakfast is offered. The only drwback that I encountered is that the Air Conditioning Unit in the room was very noisy and disturbed our sleep.

This is a lovely property located close to many fun things. The rooms are small but efficient. The pool was well cared for, and the property is very clean. The front desk staff was friendly, and were very helpful when we were looking for ice to take a small cooler to the park.
