The motel is nice- clean, heated pool, clean rooms, quick housekeeping service, nice staff. BUT the mattresses were so old and creaky and hard. This ruined the entire stay, because sleeping was so uncomfortable.

Great hotel for a short stay near Universal Studios and the L.A. Zoo. Very friendly woman helped us check-in, I think her name was Maryanne. She was very helpful. Room wasn't big, but not too small either. Funny interior with the red and the zebra print. Heated pool was a plus too! Bathroom was nice and the shower worked great.... More

It's one of those times when I'm almost hesitant to say, because we want to be able to come back any time we can. It's a Motel, so if you want the Ritz, book that instead. What we got here was a very convenient location; excellent quality of sleep in a very clean room, on a super comfy king bed;... More

We were literally there for all of 8 hours last Thursday night. Check in took longer than expected at 11:00 at night, but there was only 1 woman on and she was very busy helping everyone she could. Room was clean and tidy, all we needed for the stay.

Nice basic hotel. clean with great staff. Easy access to Universal studios. close to downtown burbank. Not a chain and not fancy. There are only double beds which makes it a bit tight if 2 are in a bed but workable.

This is one of my favourite hotels in LA -- it's clean, well-located in Burbank, has friendly, helpful staff, has clean bathrooms and has a super cool connection to a host of TV shows and movies filmed here over the years. It's really close to a CVS and supermarket as well as some dining options. It's really easy to get... More

We got stranded at the airport for about an hour, prearranged shuttle did not arrive. But a couple of calls to the desk and they told us to take a taxi, which they paid for. A bit scary for the start of a trip, but all else fell into place. Room was nice, shuttle thereafter was spot on. Great location... More

This hotel was pretty good, it has a great location and the rooms are very clean. The beds are very uncomfortable and need to be updated. Also our room shared a wall with the vending machine and ice machine. The noise from those machines was so loud at night through the wall.
