We had lots of flight issues and I had to call several times to change my reservation. Not only did Alfredo happily work with me, but saved us a bit too. I won't stay anywhere else in Burbank. Friendly helpful staff and a really nice hotel. Win, win! I'd give them 10 stars.

This hotel is a five minute walk from my daughter’s apartment and I really wanted it to be as great as the other reviews said it was but it was not. Perhaps my experience was a fluke. The positives: location. There is a great park across the street. The guy at the front desk was very nice. The negatives: the lampshade was broken, there was a hole kicked in the bathroom door, the cupboards had crumbs and even food was left in one of the cupboards, the hair dryer was off the wall and filthy. I had to wipe smudges off the door and door handle. The room smelled faintly of cigarettes- this may be from people smoking outside the rooms because there is a pretty significant gap under the door. The walls are pretty thin. You can hear televisions, music , walking from other rooms easily. The king bed sloped to the middle. Take note that the restaurant “Franks” is closed. Another member of our family stayed here a few days before and her room was okay, so maybe I just got a bad room. But the whole place seemed sketchy and dirty to me. If you read my other reviews you will see that I am an honest but not typically overly critical reviewer.

We were in town for a funeral at Mt. Sinai. This is a great hotel. Friendly staff. It's close to everything we needed to do. Unit was very clean. It looks like it was recently remodeled. Very nicely decorated. Bed was very comfortable. Microwave & mini fridge in room. And it was very nice to have a restaurant on the premises as well. We will definitely stay here again.

Upon arriving was notified that the 2 rooms we booked for our family of 6 had only 1 bed in each room.we were going to universal the next day and it was late so we had no choice but to figure it out.they offered to change our room the next day.T arrival we noticed we were in a pretty shay part of town and this was a very old motel the outside was not very inviting.fast forward To our new rooms and pictures were in the floor that obviously fell off and didn’t get rehung switches were broken the room was in need of some refurbishing no microwave.the internet was horrible.will never stay there again was very noisy thing clanging in the wall. All er could get in one room was scalding hot water.you don’t even get you pay for here.run away!!!!!!

We booked this motel when visiting Universal Studio. We needed a parking lot, so to be safe we chose a hotel a little bit away from the Studio. We checked in around 8pm but we didn’t have any problem finding parking spots. There was Ralph supermarket 5 min drive distance where we got some cheap dinner and breakfast. But we found out that this motel provide simple breakfast: sweet bakery, oats, toasts, bagels, coffee, orange juice etc. This motel seemed old; you can tell from the look outside and inside the room. But at least the restroom was renovated with new flooring. It looked clean. Wifi was surprisingly worked very well from my room. There were microwave and fridge. No hair dryer though. Overall, we were agreeably surprised by the quality of the room for the relatively low price. We’d come back again and we’d recommend this motel.
