We had a nicely priced, very good stay. It has free parking and it is close to downtown. The room was fine and the bed was comfortable. Burbank is a lovely, neat town. Definitely recommend staying there if you are going to the Universal Studios.

We stayed here for the Thanksgiving holiday. I had read previous reviews and decided to make reservations. Glad I did. Great choice thanks to previous reviewers. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Coffee 24 hours--nice. Also close by is the Chandler bike and walking path.

Very nice hotel with great rooms and a great staff. The hotel is very close to Warner Brothers which made for a great vacation. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the beds are very comfortable.

My husband and I were looking for a hotel that was close to Universal Studios Hollywood and decided to give this place a shot after reading the reviews. It was only a 10 minute drive to the theme park in traffic and was significantly less than the hotels in the surrounding area. The hotel offered free parking, guaranteed late arrival,... More

Our choice was made by reading other reviews. We were happy with our choice. Our room was not fancy but was clean and the bed comfortable. We had everything we needed & a 7/11 was within walking distance. Staff were friendly and helpful as were the other guest that we met on our stay.

From the outside, it is nothing special and I wondered about my choice. But, the rooms are very nice, clean, spacious and remodeled. There was a refrigerator and microwave as well as free wifi. They offered a breakfast in the lobby, but we ate next door at the restaurant. We stayed for 3 days and had no issues or complaints.... More

We took a trip to Burbank in July and had a very tight budget. Portofino Inn is a low cost hotel that is clean and has comfortable beds. The staff are very nice and accommodating. Don't expect a 5 star hotel amenities at this price! They provided free coffee and juice at any hour, and simple breakfast items including fresh... More

I absolutely was amazed how nice and clean the hotel was. The outside looks like a regular cheap hotel, but don't let the outside fool you. The beds are so comfortable and they also offer free breakfast. I love their nut muffins (yummy) I definitely will be booking again when I come back to LA. By the way, it is... More

The hotel is very well located to drive to museums, parks, Warners Bro or others studios, etc. MetroLink is about 1 mile away. The room was spacious and clean with a fridge and microwave. Bathroom was nice. Staff was lovely and helpful. Breakfast was good.
