“Very Comfortable”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I needed a room near the Burbank airport for a one-night stay, and I was very happy that I chose this hotel.

The room was clean and quiet, the bed was VERY comfortable, the TV was great, and the air conditioner allowed me to get the room to a nice low temperature (which I like for sleeping). The fan of the air conditioner was a bit loud, but I wear earplugs when I sleep; so this wasn't a problem for me. Also, I called ahead and asked if it would be possible for me to check in a couple of hours early, and they were able to accommodate my request, which was very helpful.

They offer a free breakfast and free underground parking. The breakfast was pretty decent. There was a wide variety of foods (instant hot cereal, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, scrambled eggs that were made into little patties, make your own waffles, toast and English muffins that you toast yourself, and juices, milk, coffee, and tea). One thing that was a bit disconcerting is that anyone can drive into the parking garage and take the elevator directly to the guest floors. I got back rather late at night and expected to have to swipe my room key to get into the elevator (or at least to take the elevator above the lobby), but this wasn't the case.

Overall, I was very pleased with the hotel and would definitely stay there again.

We've stayed at hundreds of hotels over the years, but the Best Western Plus Media Center Inn & Suites is far and away superior to most others. Yes the location is perfect with its proximity to the major studios; great restaurants; all in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Sure the rooms are extremely quiet, clean and very spacious, complete with a refrigerator. Free parking! Free internet access! The free breakfast was adequate, but we did not come here to eat and didn't expect fine dining like some guests do.

But it's the service we received here that sets it apart. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. EXTREMELY! This is how all hotels were MEANT to be. Most fall way short. But not here. This one rises far above and sets a new benchmark of the customer service all hotels SHOULD have.

We chose the Best Western Plus Media Center based on reviews found here. We're glad we did and are happy to spread the word on such a wonderful place to stay. Our next time in L.A. you can find us here. And every time after that. Thank you Mr. Patel for all you do.

This hotel was recommended to us by our son who lives nearby in Valley Village. It was a nice location which included FREE parking and continental breakfast. Our room was large and very clean. I was concerned that it would be noisy, but it was actually quiet. We did not use the pool or take advantage of the breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is very close to Warner Brothers. If you're in town on a Friday night, you may want to walk down the street to the Original Bob's Big Boy as they have a car show every Friday night. We also found that Paty's diner (also within walking distance) offered a good family meal at a reasonable price. Enjoy!

We wanted to stay in close proximity to our family and friends so this BW was ideally located.The room was clean and comfortable and faced the back alley on the third floor which was quiet. The breakfast area was pleasant and the white tablecloths were a nice touch;however, the breakfast was not great unless you ate toast and yoghurt. My husband had to pour waffle syrup on the eggs and sausage to make them edible.The staff at the front desk was very accommodating since we asked if our room could be cleaned early because we were expecting family visitors in our room. Free parking was a plus and so was the internet.We stayed for nine days and were very pleased with our experience.

Room Tip: Overlooking the alley on the third floow.

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.
