Portofino Inn Burbank

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

very noisy exhaust fan in bathroom, uncomfortable uneven bed, embarassing continental breakfast.

I just needed a place to sleep that wasn't creepy. This place was good. Not luxurious but convenient. Just what I needed. An affordable bed that didn't gross me out.

Overall a good night stay. Close to the freeways and revitalized downtown shopping and restaurants, not quite walking distance. Outside is a typical motel look but don't let it scare you off. The rooms were updated and really nice inside and the AC wall unit worked well in the record heat. Continental breakfast included and coffee and juice was available 24/7 which was nice.

It was good.. not to far from universal studios. It was clean and comfie. The only thing I didn't like is you can her the other rooms when there taking a shower and it's loud. Other then that will be staying there a again just dont know when but some tume this year again and told me friends about the hotel..

Basic hotel, room looked old but clean and bed was comfortable. Continental breakfast was less than usual, no fruit or yogurt just cereals and bread/pastry

From the first moment, was a nice place, clean, security, any issues Thanks

I had a great stay. This was my first trip to California. I am from Cincinnati Ohio. The staff was very friendly. My room was always clean. I had no major issues just a few minor. I changed my room to a smoking room simply because I didn't want to wait for my room to get done. I arrived early. There were burn holes in the comforter (didn't stop me from sleeping so no reason to complain). I would add more items to choose from for breakfast. I really wanted some fruit. Overall I had a blast and I will definitely be back.

I was very pleased for an older property, they have tried hard to make it nice

Nice staff. Very helpful. Good room for the price.

The Carpets in the Room were Filthy, The Continental Breakfast was Awful.

One day there were no toiletries. Very noisy. Can hear everything happening in room upstairs.

Good location.Clean room.Nice people.worth the money for sure.

Power outlet and light out over vanity made things difficult and no hair dryer Never repaired.

Easy to make reservations with Orbitz. Breakfast was basic food items. Front office staff were friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel staff were friendly. The room itself was clean and comfortable. It was a quaint little room and perfect for my husband and I. We would definitely stay here again.

Good place to stay at when you're on a budget. Clean and peaceful.

Big bed, nice TV, clean and practical. Hotek staff was nice. Overall great experience.

Although I was there only 1 night, I found the hotel quite satisfactory.

You get exactly what you expect here. Just a regualr hotel. Good for lonely business trips.

My husband and I were making a weekend trip from Utah to see Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the Rose Bowl. We found this good deal on Orbtiz for the Portofino Inn. I was expected a run down place, but we found our room to be extremely comfortable. My one complaint would be the paper thin walls. I was woken up in the night by our next door neighbors. But for the price, it was a great room to stay the night.
