Fine for the price

Typical 2-floor, exterior room access motel convenient to Burbank TV and movie studios. Large drugstore, decent restaurant, and funky shopping close by. Room interior better quality than expected for this type of motel. Located on a thoroughfare but traffic noise was never noticeable. If housekeeping hadn't failed to fill the empty Kleenex dispenser (which I needed due to a cold), I would rate a little higher.

Quick Overnight Stay

Would recommend Sat, Oct 17, 2015
Hotel was nice. Front desk staff were very friendly. We liked them a lot. If we had to stay longer, it would have been nice to have had a microwave in the room. It was not necessary for this stay. Enjoyed the comfortable bedding and pillows.

Close To Our Daughter

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
The hotel was in close proximity to where our daughter was moving. Excellent customer service. There were booklets with things to do around Burbank and LA. Clean and comfortable. Only downside was no complimentary breakfast but there is a restaurant next door.

Great value

Would recommend Thu, Oct 1, 2015
For the most part, this hotel was a great value. There were only a few things that I had issues with. 1. The parking lot is horrible! They tried to make too many spaces in a small area, resulting in a space that you can hardly get out of without hitting another car. There were times that I had to back out of the driveway because a large vehicle was taking so much space that I could drive through to the exit. 2. They need to steam the carpets. Although clearly vacuumed, and neat - my white socks turned brown after walking on the carpets. Otherwise, the stay was great. The staff was exceedingly helpful and nice. I will stay here again next time I'm in town.

Would recommend Wed, Sep 9, 2015
I love the location..very closed to the places where we want to go..universal studio,hollywood walk of fame and wax museum. Very nice and accomodating staff. We came so early before the check in time but she was able to give us the room at 11am..we were able to rest after the long drive. Btw,we didn't use the wifi and the amenities that's why I just put 1 in the ratings. Overall..we enjoyed our stay! :-)

Do Not Stay here!

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 25, 2015
These folks are shakedown artists!(apparently the not-to-be-named company whose site this is on does not want harsh comments, but there is nothing good I could say about this place, so...) Just do yourself a favor and don't stay here!

Great Quiet location close to all the attractions

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
Hotel was clean and neat. Rooms were a little on the small side, but were enough since we were only using the room to sleep and not hang out much at the hotel. Decent pool and great food that is within walking distance. The best part was the location, mins to Griffith Observer, Universal Studios and WB Studios. The traffic on Olive street was never very busy, which made driving back from the the 405 or 101 a nice relief.

Dear Friends Visit

Would recommend Wed, Jul 1, 2015
Both my friend and I grew up in Burbank. I had never stayed there. When we were meeting up for a few days, he suggested we stay there for nostalgia reasons. I LOVED it. Close to everything we were doing. Clean room and we were completely comfortable.
