My husband and I stayed at the Portofino Inn for 5 nights, and I have not one complaint about this place! The staff is wonderful, our beds were made every single day, and we always had new towels, etc. The hotel is very clean, the location is perfect, there is free parking, Wifi, and a free breakfast with bagels, pastries,...

Stayed multiple nights at the Portofino in Burbank. This was our second time to stay here. We were surprised how much our experience had declined year over year. We found hair on our towels,sheets and pillowcases. The toilet paper holder fell off the wall, the light fixture cover came off. The cleaning staff was rude. They asked us to please... More

We stayed at the hotel for three nights. It's nicely updated, attractive bathrooms, great linens and comfortable beds. However, the walls are very thin and conversations can be heard clearly from the adjacent rooms. There are large gaps around the entry doors. A little weatherstripping would help. There is no pool or outdoor lounge area. Despite that, we would stay... More

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... More

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 Hotel is from the 60's and kind of looks outdated on the outside but dont let that fool you.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 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... More

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.

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.
