My friend and I stayed at this hotel for one night and we really enjoyed ourselves! The hotel and room were very clean. The bathroom was very spacious with a dual head shower and the beds in the room were very comfortable. We had brunch at Olive’s and the food was delicious (thr mimosas with fresh squeezed orange juice were a highlight!). A big plus was their complimentary shuttle which took us to and from the airport, Warner Bros. Studios and Universal Studios and the shuttle drivers were so kind! We will definitely stay at the Coast Annabelle again should we be in Burbank. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we wish it was longer!
Disneyland just closed due to Corona Virus. We planned on staying next to Disneyland a few days then at Coast Anabelle Hotel right after because it is close to Universal Studios. The hotel close to Disneyland and our airline tickets were no problem being refunded. THIS HOTEL however would not cancel without forfeiting the FULL RATE. I am 24 days out and I can’t cancel? I would be understanding if I lost a $50 deposit, but to be out $259.98 for 1 night? Governor declared a State of emergency. The President of the United States declared a national emergency. This company won’t budge nor will they let you switch your travel date. I think a class action suit will follow soon.
Do Not Stay At This Hotel
I feel a little bad criticizing this hotel since the staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel not owned by one of the “big boy” hotel chains. I’m always hoping for the “little guy” to succeed. But there were just too many issues with the whole hotel experience. To recount: 1) Dated seating when you walk in – four mismatched chairs with saggy upholstery, which look weird. We were off to a bad start. 2) My smoke alarm continuously chirped all night, as the battery was low. 3) Although I had a cool looking double shower with 2 showerheads that looked fun (regular and rain can), the hot water for the regular showerhead didn’t work. 4) Terrible, terrible lighting, way too darks. 5) Very few charging outlets, none of which were at/on the nightstands. In the age of the electronic device, this is a major fail. 6) Very dirty windows. 6) THIN THIN WALLS. You could hear every time people laughed at the bar (located on the first floor, I was on the third). I also heard a couple, well, quite clearly in the throes of passion! The room was clean and the staff attentive – but do not stay at this hotel.

Nice and clean hotel near Universal Studios
The rooms were clean and had the biggest shower I’ve seen in a hotel this size. We had two rooms.
The one with the king bed had a microwave and frig. The room with the 2 queen beds just had a frig. Traveling with kids, that’s good info to know and it wasn’t clear on the website.
Close to Hollywood and Movie Studios
This a nice boutique hotel that is close to Hollywood and the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the famed Hollywood sign. It is also close to Universal Studios, which was the reason for our trip. The hotel offers a shuttle to-and-from Universal Studios that you have to book in advance.
The hotel is nice and the rooms are a decent size. The bathroom shower is upgraded and very nice with dual shower heads. The rooms have a safe and nice mini refrigerator. Service is good and the staff is very nice. I was surprised at how good the food was here. There is one restaurant for dine in or room service. Everything from breakfast to dinner was very good. They also have a nice happy hour from 6-8pm daily that I highly recommend. The bartender, Dennis, will keep you entertained and the drinks flowing.
The location of this hotel is great and I would visit again.
