We stayed here for 2nights to get away for Spring Break. We wanted a place close to Universal Studios and Hollywood. It was hard to find a hotel that you did not have to pay for parking or wifi. Plus., alot of hotels around Hollywood are kind of seedy. This place is great. You do not have to pay for...

We needed a place to stay in Burbank while we went to Universal Studios which is only 10 mins away. Hotel is from the 60's and kind of looks outdated on the outside but dont let that fool you. We were greeted at the front desk and he even went and checked to see if our room was ready since...

We arrived in town late and the desk clerk was kind enough to help me find the Poritifino over the phone, giving me directions until I pulled into the hotel. It was very clean, comfortable and had up to date furnishings.The price was reasonable. I will definitely stay again when back in town.

I booked with Portofino Inn based on other people's review and they were right. We stayed for one-night. It is a remodeled mom and pop motel from the 60s located in downtown Burbank. They kept the structure but made the rooms bigger and upgraded the fixtures. There were 4 of us in a room with double queen beds and it...

My wife and I stayed here on two occasions in Dec. 2012 during the Christmas period while visiting relatives. I was very impressed. This has to be the best value hotel around in the area of Burbank. The price was lower than any other, yet the rooms were excellent in every way. Steve at the front desk was helpful and...

We were finding it hard to get a nice hotel in the area last minute. We weren't expecting much but pleased to find the room clean and comfortable. It is in a good location to freeways and restaurants. The front desk was very friendly.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose to spend our Rose Bowl Trip in Burbank at the Portofino. I spoke directly with the hotel to get the logistics and relevance to the Metro. You should have a car to see the area and when using the Metro, there are several Free Parking lots. The hotel had a nice...

My sisters and I stayed at the Portofino last weekend. The rooms were very clean, updated and fairly quiet. No pool or jacuzi, but fresh bagels, rolls and good coffee for breakfast. Well worth the $100 I paid for a King.

From the out side it may look like a simple motel, but the rooms are very nice and clean and it was in a very reasonable price. The owner is very nice and will give you all the information you need to know about L.A.
