Just really love this place

Wonderful location for Burbank and real close to the major studios. Nice, quiet location, rooms are large, clean and bug-free. Staff are highly professional and friendly. What's not to love?

Dining tip: In Hotel

Joined onto the main office of the Inn is a largish diner called "Frank's" I've personally only ever seen it open once, but then again I'm not around during the day. I hear it has great food.

Great hotel at a great price, highly recommend. Yes, it's not the Hilton, but the people there are friendly and the room clean and comfortable.

Very slow WiFi

If you want to watch a movie on your laptop, forget about it. The WiFi connection is super slow. I drove to the public library a few blocks away so I could at least get decent WiFi. My room's chair leg was about to break, it was so wobbly and the bath tub was completely clogged. This hotel should be about $65 a nite instead over $100. You pay for being in Burbank I guess. On a high note, the bed was very comfy and having a fridge was nice. The staff was nice too.

Good, inexpensive hotel

I just spent three nights here on business and will do the same next week. I found the staff friendly and helpful, and parking was good (and free). The room was about $107 and was in good shape. Room had TV, fridge, microwave, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. TV reception was a bit iffy at times, but who cares - I don't rent a room to watch TV. Location-wise, the hotel is adjacent to a bunch of food places and a stone's throw from downtown burbank, which is over the bridge. Based on my stay, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Family getaway

If there is a below 0 star I will definitely give it to this hotel. I travel a lot never had an awful experience. Hotel is very dirty, awful customer service upon checking in and seeing both rooms I was ready to leave but they said they will not refund my money. They did change my son's room but it was not any better. At this point I was willing to pay for a different hotel but unfortunately area was very busy couldn't find any accommodations. Bugs, dirty carpet, dirty drapes, on and on. I wish I can get a refund this is the first time I use this service and it was not pleasant. Very unhappy.

Nice spot, great value

Comfortable, clean, restful rooms. Excellent value. Not a resort with a pool, but a great place to stay if you're stopping to rest or want to visit nearby spots in Southern Cal. I was visiting a friend in Burbank who has no room for overnight guests, and this was just perfect for that. Adjoining diner is a decent place for breakfast -- but they probably won't have the pies that the sign advertises.

This hotel is close to a lot of film studios. Also, downtown Burbank is basically down the street, with lots of places to eat, movie theaters, etc.

As a woman traveling alone...

I found this hotel safe and clean. The staff seemed to care about my stay. The only problem I had was the smoke detector in my room started beeping and I am certain they would have fixed it immediately had I told them... I was too tired and slept through it .. hehehe
