My husband and I need a place to stay overnight while we were visiting Universal Studios and the Saddle Ranch Chop House. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, parking situation good, so it met our needs very well and was reasonably priced. Only thing missing is a swimming pool and boy was it hot this weekend. It is a...

- - My wife and I attended the 4-day S. Calif. Genealogy Jamboree this month, and stayed at the Portofino Inn. Burbank for 5 nights. This expensive Jamboree has the best speakers and includes 3 lavish meals per day, so we were there from 7:30 A.M. to evening, all 4 days. We're also Green Party members, so the first two...

A group of us stayed at here for only 1 night as a stop over to pick up hire cars and continue onto a music festival. The staff here were amazingly helpful. They helped us find shops and a Mexican place for dinner. We had bought a bottle of wine and we asked for a bottle opener, they didnt have...

I had a lovely 10 day stay. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them to help you with. Very clean and nice rooms. On a major road but was not bothered by any noise. Great location.

A gem of a property in an odd neighborhood in Burbank. Clean, no frills and inexpensive. For travelers on a budget, this is a great place. Rooms are simple - queen bed, an easy chair, dresser and desk. No pool, no pets. Go to a fancier place when your ship comes in!

I reserved four rooms for a family gathering in the area. The outside is rather old and unappealing, but the rooms have been remodeled very nicely and the beds are very comfortable. Didn't have a problem with noise. The little diner attached is very old fashioned and used for TV and movie locations. In fact, the next day it was...

I chose this motel based on reviews that gave it kudos for refurbishing that was very well done....and it is! BUT...when it came to bedtime, between the tweakers upstairs doing god knows what and the neighbors tv, i had to turn to ear plugs and sleep aids. That is the one thing i value most in a motel is quiet,...

I am working at a 5 star hotel chain and not used to staying at motels. Portofino Inn was a nice surprise. They recently renovated their rooms and the clientele is middle-class tourists and business men. Room was good size and up-to-date, nice decor. I stayed with them for 7 nights on leisure as I was visiting my friend in...

I stayed at the Portofino at the beginning of September 2011 for three nights. I had booked online months prior, and the Web site made it look like a three star hotel, maybe four. But I did happen to see a photo of the motel sign before I arrived, and I anticipated it wasn't nearly that nice. Indeed, upon arrival,...
