Burbank is nice!

Posted Oct 17, 2017
It was great - Burbank was great - more like I pictured California to be. Clean area. Hotels staff was very accommodating to me and gave me a ride back to the airport to return my rental car

It was nothing to write home about, but it served its purpose. The toilet ran all night so I finally had to turn off the water. I complained the next morning, but it was still broken that night. Also, the light in the bathroom was too dark and gloomy. I think a lightbulb was burned out. I only stayed there because it was so convenient to my friend's house. Overall, it was clean, but pretty dated.

Nice for the price

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Pros: Comfortable beds!
Cons: Faster service when something breaks. We never got a replacement hair dryer.
Location: CVS, McDonald's and the Donut Nook are a block away. Awesome donuts!
Comfortable beds, very clean room, one block to McDonald's and CVS. Our hair dryer didn't work and we called, but no replacement ever came so that affects the rating. The adjacent hotel has a nice restaurant which provides room service to both hotels, we ate breakfast there and were very pleased. Free shuttle to Universal and back, but a cab is only $12 if you want to come back early. Nice clean pool. Good place to stay for the price but it's a motel, no interior hallways but it seemed to be a good neighborhood, very quiet, and we slept well.

Excellent staff and transportation to park is grea

Posted Aug 29, 2017
The motel was was very easy to find. I will say it is a bit outdated, but it is clean and the staff are super friendly. The check-in was quick and the woman who checked us in, was very kind, easy to talk to and helped us with all our questions. We took the shuttle to Universal and both drivers we had were excellent. Our room was clean and the cleaning staff were all friendly. We swam in the pool during our stay and it was very clean and just the right temperature. One must remember this is a motel and a bit old and out dated. But I knew this when I booked, because I knew I would only be staying a couple days and would mostly be spending time at the park.

TIKI TOUR #2

Posted Aug 18, 2017
Our family of 5 likes to checkout Tiki Bars / Restaurants in different areas... The Safari Inn went right along with the retro feel we were looking for . It was a great time and we would stay here again !!!

Pros: Nice sized rooms with comfortable beds. Very clean.
Cons: Add microwaves to the rooms. There is a community microwave in the laundry room.
Location: There is a McDonalds and CVS nearby. Short and easy drive to Universal Studios, WB studios, freeway and the subway.
A very good motel. However it has the short comings that all motels have. Such as doors to the outside means more noise that a hotel. Nice sized rooms with comfortable beds. Very clean. There is a McDonalds and CVS nearby. Short and easy drive to Universal Studios, WB studios, freeway and the subway. Parking lot was very tight. Clearly it was built before everyone was driving SUVs. The hotel next door has the same owners and they share amenities like the restaurant.

Thank you for your feedback. We do offer select room types with microwaves in them such as our Wet Bar, Mini Suite, Junior Suite and Full Suite. In regards to the parking, our sister-property the Coast Anabelle offers additional parking for larger vehicles and is located just next door. We are working on addressing the issue regarding parking at the Safari Inn. We apologize for the inconvenience this caused. Thank you once again.

Nice hotel good location

Posted Aug 4, 2017
When my husband first told me he booked the Safari hotel I was a little worried. It looked like an old run down motel to me from the pictures. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Staff- friendly and helpful Rooms- had a bit of character with the zebra print motif. Nice toilet paper. Hair dryer, cotton swabs and face mirror Location - walking distance to McDonalds, Starbucks, CVS and other amenities It also had a warm pool and HBO TV. Overall I thought the hotel had some character and we were pleased with our stay
