“Great trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

The room was great, clean and comfortable. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was yummy, coffee was great. Location to WB Studios can't be beat and Universal City is only 10 minute ride away. Plenty of nearby places to walk, eat, etc. Had all-around great time there.

We were visiting family in LA and chose this BW from several other options. Certainly, a wise choice. The neighborhood is charming as we found out during our morning walks and the availability of good restaurants and other services made the entire 4 day stay very satisfactory. Andrew at the front desk ensured our expectations were met, as did the other hotel staff. The room was well appointed and extremely quiet (ask for one along the back). The location is very close to freeway ramps and the parking facilities are secure.

When we visit again, we will certainly look here first.

Room Tip: away from the front street

Everything you need - large room, great bed, microwave, fridge, counter space in the bathroom, quiet, free parking & wifi. Included breakfast wasn't as good as Holiday Inn Express does, but it was adequate, clean and there was plenty of seating. Andrew at the front desk was especially helpful in a lot of ways. The Mexican restaurant across the street has great Yelp reviews but the wait was 45 minutes to an hour to get in and they don't take reservations on Friday nights. Ended up walking to the Original Bob's Big Boy just down the street and it was great, bringing back nostalgic memories with those great hamburgers and even a classic car gathering happening in the parking lot. Great crowd! Finish it up by walking across the street and getting a drink in the beautiful bar in the restaurant.

Though hard to spot at night, we found this hotel to be somewhat unique - it is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood but is across the street from some tall office buildings which are adjacent to the freeway. These tall buildings block the noise from the freeway, and traffic on Riverside Drive (on a weekend) was light.

This hotel offers free parking underground on two levels. Across the street is a delightful Mexican restaurant. Come early, the place fills up fast on a Saturday night. Within a four block walk is a Subway, cafe, Starbucks, Chipotle, and the oldest Bob's Big Boy in existence.

Here on business? A FedEx center is a couple of blocks away.

The only reason I didn't give the place five stars is the continental breakfast. It is a bit below par with hotels of this level. Although I will say the coffee is good, and that's important.

Our second morning we opted to breakfast at Bob's Big Boy, and it did not disappoint.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay. It was quiet, clean, and they have pillow-top beds and good-sized panel TVs. Enjoy your stay.

This is our 3rd or 4th stay with this hotel and find it a comfortable hotel in the Burbank area. Rooms are clean, large. Beds are very comfortable! We have family/friends in the LA area and find this to be a safe/central location after flying into Bob Hope Airport.
