Family vacation for thanksgiving holiday

Posted Dec 1, 2017
Pros: The exceptional friendliness of staff. Room was perfect for us
Cons: Nothing
Location: Near Universal with a shuttle to and from. Groceries and restaurants nearby. And beautiful views of mountains.
We have 2 sons who live in Burbank. Both have small apts so we stay in a motel when we visit. The Safari Inn is perfect for us and we will be back numerous times. So close to everything we do when we visit.

Hotel is close to all attractions. Rooms small but clean and the beds very comfortable. Front desk staff welcoming , informative. Shuttle drivers friendly. Oliver's Bistro was very good. We had both breakfast and dinner there and enjoyed each.

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.

A great place to base for the area.

Posted Sep 16, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel was great. Not only did I find it very clean and the staff very friendly, the shuttle to Universal Studios was an added plus to make my stay enjoyable. The driver was also very friendly and always on time to make my adventures less stressful. The only thing I can think of that would have made my stay better would be to have a microwave in the room and a little upgrade in the mattress. But believe me, with all the running around I did, I slept like a baby. Thank you Safari Inn.
