Great place to stay room was very clean and comfortable staff was friendly and helpful we would use them again for a stay. Dispite it doesn't have a pool I'm still happy with everything else they offer for the price. One improvement I would suggest to be made is where they serve breakfast is very small and not comfortable because... More

After taxes, this room was $190 for one night. I was told that included a discount. The walls are thin, we could hear our next door neighbors' conversations (and other activities, but hey - that's to be expected, I suppose). The neighbors upstairs were talking and walking around at all hours of the night. Their steps sounded like pounding on... More

We booked Portofino Inn over this past weekend because most hotels were somehow booked up in the area. It looks sketchy from the outside, but it's definitely not that bad on the inside. Although street noises were pretty bad in the mornings. Having just moved over from staying 2 nights at the Quality Inn in Downey, this place we majorly... More

The nightly rate is the best thing about the Portofino Inn. Customer service was also very good (front desk and housekeeping were both friendly and helpful). The bed was comfortable, the TV quite good, and the bathroom was spotless. I wish the carpet, chair, and bed cover had been as notably clean. Conveniently located near the Burbank airport and freeways... More

This Lodging location is good for Burbank with reasonable prices. The rooms are nice and continental breakfast is available in the morning. Portofino Inn has good location with museums a block away. Several restaurants are within walking distance, some with excellent food and features.

Hands down this was some of the best, personal and accommodating staff encountered. I travelled a fair bit for business as while this was personal last minute travel for memorial event and was looking for reasonable priced yet clean etc. for solo travel I couldn't have done better. From Alfredo's (manager, I believe) phone time and follow-through to his staff,... More

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.

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
