Ramada Burbank Airport Hotel
A modest motel near San Fernando Valley's Burbank Airport.
Standard in every way --- except for the noise from nearby jets --- this central Valley location gives business and leisure travelers a moderate, budget-priced place to dump their bags and get a decent night's sleep. It's especially convenient for short stays and quick getaways. Guest rooms are clean and sufficient, but don't offer much respite from this not-so-lovely location just outside L.A.'s second major airport. The large outdoor swimming pool is refreshing on hot summer days when San Fernando Valley temperatures can soar upwards of 100 degrees. Don't expect extra-special treatment or the quirky touches that sometimes differentiate chain hotels like this one from more refined accommodations. Nevertheless, when business calls one to L.A.'s vast Valley area, this is a convenient and modestly priced base, with room service and free Internet access.
