When I think Best Western I kind of dread staying at the hotel. However this Best Western Plus turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
Check in was done right at 3:00 and the room was ready to go. Because I booked through P-line, they only had a reservation for 2 people and a single bed. We had three people and the desk was gracious to change rooms for us and give us an additional breakfast voucher. Very friendly and easy to check in. We had a room on the first floor, however, be aware it is a two story property with no elevator. Thus, if you have a ton of luggage, try to get the first floor. Some second story room have quaint balconies overlooking the pool too.
All rooms have exterior entrances and use a magnetic card for entry. Our room was quite nice with two queen beds, a 1/2 sized fridge, large flatscreen and a microwave. Plenty of towels for the three of us as well. Standard hotel room, but it was very clean and was comfortable for us. The doors to the room are heavy and tend to make a lot of noise if just let go...we heard our neighbors frequently because of this and the showers being run next door. We left the fan on the unit to mute the excess noise. There was tons of water pressure and a great shower. Beds were comfy and no problem sleeping on them either. Free Wi-Fi and we had an excellent connection with very quick speeds--another pleasant surprise.
At check-in you will receive vouchers for breakfast for each person staying at the hotel. Breakfast runs from 6:00 to 9:00 Mon - Sat and 6:00 to 10:00 on Sun. It is an exceptionally nice breakfast. There is an omelette/egg station where your eggs could be cooked to order (Bring a dollar to tip the cook) there was ham, cheese, spinach, onions, peppers, jalapenos and mushrooms to fill the omelette if desired. There were also potatoes, sausage, waffles, French toast, pastries, and a multitude of juices. The other hot foods mentioned changed daily. Breakfast was better than average. Remember to bring the vouchers as they do collect them each morning.
The hotel itself is about 1.5 miles off the 118, but it is easy to find. The Elephant Bar restaurant is next to the hotel, but it was closed. There are other restaurants nearby (within 2 miles or so), but you need a car. The Reagan library is also close by. Without traffic, it took us under 35 minutes to get to/from the Burbank Airport. The commuter lane helped in our case.
I would consider this a 3+ star hotel. It has everything you want and need with the only downside being the neighbor noise. That being said . . . for $84.00 per night, I definitely got what I paid for and a great deal more. I will go back if needed and will recommend the hotel to others.
