I read these reviews before we left, and I agree with most of them. The place is not impressive on the outside, but better on the inside. They've really tried, with deep burgundy carpets, crown molding and dark shiny furniture, including an armoire (so, no closet). But there are those signs--a big burn mark on the carpet, a cigarette stain...

Great for the price you pay. Rooms are very clean. Decent continental breakfast. Friendly staff. Wi-Fi was pretty strong in our room. The only knock I have on this place is the location. If you have a car (which upon hindsight, we should have rented one) it's not bad. We did Hollywood, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. while we were...

We were going to see the Tonight Show in Burbank, so we wanted something close to the studio. This hotel seem to be the best in the area for the price. We ended up staying 2 nights, but were more than ready to leave by the 3 day. The rooms had been recently renovated, but they were very small and...

The service and rudeness at this establishment is incredible. The rooms stinks, the carpet was stained, they charged us an extra $50/ night at the door for a room with a double bed, after i payed in advance with a card, the WiFI repeatedly cut out, and the free breakfast was a joke. Furthermore I was woken up at 9am...

My girlfriend and I have stayed here at least 5 times. We have always been happy and comfortable here at this hotel. The location is good and close to many things. However, this stay was different. We arrived in early and I called the hotel to see if a room was available for early check in. In the past, there...

The people were nice, the rooms were clean, tv, microwave, fridge, COMFORTABLE beds! Hassle free check in/out. Good price. Great location.

This was where my husband and I stayed while visiting LA on our honeymoon. Clean, quiet, and recently renovated, this was such a good find. A good price, and polite staff as well. Rebooked it for our visit this year!

This is the first time I've been misled by reviews posted on tripadvisor.com. This hotel has more cons than pros and we will most likely not book here again. My husband and I recently stayed for three nights while visiting our daughter. We have previously stayed at the Tangerine (highly recommend) and thought we'd give this place a try based...

It's a good hotel to stay for 1 night if you are in Burbank to attend a TV Show or going to a Studio Tour. The rooms look much nicer once you are inside. Clean, big and pretty peaciful and quiet. Sometimes there are some movie recordings at the same Hotel or Restaurant next to it. The night we were...
