The Safari Inn looks liked the two-story drive-up motel you've seen in movies, where the child abductor is holed up facing the SWAT team. Because it is: in Burbank, everything gets used for making movies, and they have a whole wall of posters for movies that have had scenes shot at the motel. It looks like an Econolodge, but it's...

This motel is clean and well run. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Our driver to Warner Brothers should give lessons to Beverly Wilshire!!! The motel is close to all the "Hollywood" "fun" and is run by Coast Hotels. Our room was clean and comfortable and the furnishings matched and we thematice. Olives Bistro is steps away and has a...

Retro Motel, clean with friendly staff. Nice pool area and close to many attractions. Choice of restaurants nearby including a Starbucks a block away. The neon sign is right out of the fifties and makes it easy to spot he motel when driving. 5 minutes from Burbank airport.

So obviously I am a True Romance fan and that influenced my choice. I had also heard good reviews from a friend. Was very happy that we stayed here. The room was clean, the pool was warm, and the staff was nice. My only complaint was that they chose to repaint/pave the parking lots of the hotel the week when... More

We stayed at this motel for two nights when we were in town visiting family in Burbank and Hollywood. The location was great for us. The room was spacious, modern, and clean, as well as quiet. Comes with a refridgerator and coffee maker, and the beds were very comfortable. They could offer a free continental breakfast like so many other... More

Stayed here before and we came back again for more. Nice dining next door with reasonable prices. Staff was helpful in finding gas stations, freeway on ramps, etc. Parking lot is a bit cramped so be careful where you park it you wish to leave in a direct manner!

This old Hollywood landmark hotel is modern but keeps ties to it's past in design and layout. Great location in Burbank, near everything. Good price for the standard room too, comes with two beds and small kitchen.

I spent overnight @ the Safari Inn as part of my Universal Studios trip. I got there a little early (0900), there was no room ready. The front desk staff was kind to let me leave my travel bag until I returned from the park. When I got back (1800), i was assigned a second floor room. The room had... More

This is a retro motel with a history behind it (a good one). Seems to be run by a corporation rather then local (Coast Hotels?). The Safari is clean. The staff are nice but lacked a bit of knowledge of the area etc. The rooms are a good size and have all the amenities you need. You can hear the... More
