“nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2010

i stayed in this hotel from 6th of July till 31st of August 2010 and i do like this place, my room was large and clean and the bed was really nice. The Burbank area was safe and nice with many nice shops and restaurants in Burbank downtown. Universal studios and Warner's Bro were very close.Daily room service, free parking, and daily breakfast were excellent addition.The manager of the hotel is a nice person and very helpful. I recommend this hotel to everyone going to LA.When i am coming back to LA with my family definitely i will stay in this hotel.

Rooms were nice. Upgraded to likes of say a Hampton inn. Is a motor court setup with outside facing doors. Place was good for a night but wouldn't stay if plan on spending some time in the room. For just a couple bucks more can stay much nicer. Just a little pricy for what we got. All that said was nice and was clean. Desk was helpful with travel tips. We stayed a night and found much nicer for a little bit more cash. Free parking was nice though. Not many others offer free parking in area it seems.

My dad and I stayed at the Portofino Inn four days last week while sightseeing and visiting some of the local hot rod shops. This hotel is very clean, secure, and convenient to everything Burbank/Pasadena has to offer. When I go back to Burbank, I will not look anywhere else... the Portofino is the best deal around. The manager and staff were exceptional. Thanks for everything Sandip! We'll be back.

Burbank is just heaven if yr destination is busy Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica - One is just one the other side of the Hollywood Hills - so every time you have to go home or away for tourism, one can choose a new route, a new road over the mountains, like Mulholland Drive, Laurel Canyon - all minutes away.. and if you like to take the fast route (some 15 min. saving!) take the freeway - Burbank is like a Paradise compared with Hollywood, Beverly Hills etc. you have calm traffic, easy accessible stores and one even feels that the air is just that tiny inch better!... all helps when you are in LA :) - Mr. Sandip, the manager, is a very friendly person, he understand why one have chosen Portofino Inn instead of the Beverly Hilton (!!) - so he is very helpful and knows how to suggest family deals to achieve $$ savings - all helps when you are on a 10d 'road-trip' :) - Rooms are large and clean - the fridge in room helps to keep food and drinks cold and the breakfast is simple but nourishing.. all in all a very good deal...

I recently stayed at the Portofino Inn in Burbank and was completely satisfied with everything. The staff goes far and beyond what you would expect! Customer service was excellent, the rooms were very tasteful and much nicer than higher end hotels I've stayed at in the past. I traveled with my young son and felt completely safe. We will always stay here when we travel to LA!

It was a great stay at Portofinno Inn, Burbank during my stay over there. The room, facilities, Breakfast arrangements.. everything is real good. The Hotel Administration is very cooperative and helpful. The Hotel Administration staff guided us to visit all the nice places which are to be visited. It was because of the help from Hotel Authorities that we could comfortably visit Universal Studios too. Whenever I again visit Burbank, I would love to stay at Portofinno Inn.

My husband and I stayed here on an evening on our California Road Trip. Having being camping along PCH we really wanted a nice, clean hotel with a comfortable bed and Portofino delivered!
The staff were helpful and the directions given on the web site were very easy to follow to get to the hotel.
It is a bit light on the “extras” – swimming pool, room service and in-house laundry BUT the owners have good recommendations for restaurants and laundries close by.
I’d particularly like to recommend the Laundromat close by to here on the corner of Olive and Almeadea: we dropped off (a lot!) of laundry at 6pm and for $10 + tip they had been washed, dried and neatly folded by 10am the next morning. So convenient, and a REALLY reasonably priced service.
