Good, clean hotel with helpful staff and fantastic location! Yes it is expensive for what you get but you need to remember where you are and how expensive all of the hotels are - it is very good value for money!

It was literally a one night stay so tough to critique for long term. Was checking in later than 3pm but since office is staffed 24/7, a quick call to let them know and all was good! It reminded me of the kind of motel you would expect near the beach, which, BTW, is an hour away from here in... More

This room was about $200 w/ taxes and so I was expecting a nice boutique hotel. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. The outside of this place is a dump--a far cry from Portofino (more like the slums of Palermo). Admittedly, the inside of the room was ok, but this should be a $59 room, not a $200 room.

I booked at the last minute when a brandname chain Burbank hotel tried to "walk" me to their hotel in Pasadena because they overbooked guest stays. I say pleasantly surprised because it is unassuming, and not a name brand. I was apprehensive on driving in because at night, the parking lot looks a little dimly lit and the parking lot... More

A decent place for a good night sleep with complimentary basic continental breakfast if a couple is on a budget but would rather spend more for Burbank's attractions. Offers 24-hour free coffee. A diner is located inside the lot. Service OK. Rooms just need more sound-proofing to minimize, if not eliminate bathroom noise next door.

I really wasn't sure what to expect from this very unassuming motel. But once settled into our room I found it to be extremely comfortable and the staff went above and beyond to make that happen. Our flight into Burbank was delayed by 2-hours and we were exhausted by the time we arrived at Portofino Inn. Check-in process was smooth... More

The bed was comfortable and the room was adequately clean. However, the Front Desk staff was often away and took 5 minutes or more to return. The location was a bit removed from the action in Burbank.

The Portofino Inn is a motel situated on the outskirts of downtown Burbank. It was perfectly acceptable, with decent sized rooms, which were clean, and reasonably well equipped with a king sized bed in the room I had, a fridge and microwave, along with a 42 inch (ish) cable tv and an air con unit that worked well. Breakfast of... More

Our family needed to be in the area for a memorial service last week. Because we did not plan to spend much time in the hotel besides sleeping we did not want to spend a lot on an expensive place. Once again we turned to trip advisor and found this little gem. Basically an older property but the rooms are... More

I was going to give this place a great review, but I wasn't the one paying for it, and when I found out how extraordinary the price was, for the location and problems, I cannot justify that in a review. So.. The good: For the most part the hotel was nice. The room was mostly clean and mostly quiet..the first... More
