Years ago, I lived at the equestrian inn which is located at 1200 Riverside drive.
They have studios, and one bedroom units.
The reason I know the address is, I am writing a novel, and that address is the title of the novel.
Have no idea what the rent is though.
It is about five minutes or less from the studio.
Could be it isn't called the equestrian inn now, but you can google the address and see what name it has now.
Also, there is a pool.
Bob.

I lived there too! It uses to be called the royal equestrian, it was bought by a company, renovated and rebranded as "luxury" apartments and now called 1200 riverside drive. I live in a condo now down the street. From there.

Having lived there in the mid 90's and knowing how the rents in that building skyrocketed I'd say most likely not worth the money.

Your best bet is probably renting short term at oakwood apts while looking - its pretty much impossible to find a good deal long distance. And you want to be longer term in one of the smaller buildings, the companies that own the larger complexes are a complete ripoff.

There are tons of cute, small buildings on the blocks around warner bros. bit it's really a case of having to walk the neighborhood to see what appeals to you. And, I would also look on Craigslist where the smaller landlords tend to advertise.

I second renting at The Oakwood (or an extended stay hotel) while scouting for apartments. We moved to Burbank from Boston. We didn't really have the option of temporary housing (2 cats, a dog, & a baby), otherwise we would have done that. My husband flew out for 3 days and looked non-stop. We filled out an application for a place and it fell through when he came back home (I forget what happened. The guy decided not to rent it at all or something. Some sort of scammy situation because he charged us $$ for an application fee and background check). And then my husband had to fly back out again for 4 days to look. He found our eventual (tiny and overpriced, but nice) apartment on the way to the airport to fly home.

It was really really stressful because he filled out the application and then it took 3+ days to find out if we got the apartment (background/credit check). Our landlord (who is super nice, and we're friends with her now) said she had 2 other people that wanted it, but she liked my husband and took pity on him because she knew he'd have to fly back AGAIN if she didn't rent it to us.

So, yeah, temporary housing while you look.

I used to live about two blocks from the mall (6th & Cypress). Nice town, but it does get hot in the Summer. Try Harry's Family Restaurant. They have great food at reasonable prices.

Google Maps

Click on get directions, enter your starting point and destination then click on the bus icon for transit directions.

It looks like 17-20 minutes from city center to city center. It's only about five miles so you might be able to ride a bicycle in less time than it takes to ride the bus.

My starting point will be :720 North Louise Street,Glendale and end will be :3300 West Olive Avenue,Burbank, CA 91505, As per Google maps it take more than a hour to just travel 5 miles via Bus

Is there any other alternative?

Yeah, I'd probably just get a cheap car and do the 5-10 minute drive...

Or bike like was suggested above.

If it was me, I would move close to work and walk. A mile or two walk first thing in the morning is great.
