My son recently stayed at this hotel with a group of actors from NYC. He was not aware that this is a Pet Friendly hotel, as the only place it is listed is on their website. No signage upon check in, nor did the staff make him aware of the situation. In addition, they said no pets were allowed on... More

Don't let the retro facade put you off, rooms are clean but on the small side but at 50 bucks a night cheaper than most other hotels in the area, the Safari is good value overall. Try the Mexican piquito mas it's fantastic!

I selected this hotel based on the comments I read here. The room is average, clean and comfortable. I decided to use the fitness center, but I realized the Air conditioning was not working, and instead they put a very dusty fan which is not what is needed. Besides, the lights turn off automatically every few minutes and you have... More

Affordable, friendly, clean accommodation in a good location. I love the retro theme of the place and stay here whenever I am in the area. The jungle theme carries through to the in-room decor, and the pool and balcony area are a favorite place of mine to relax and enjoy the balmy evenings.

This is a very basic Motel and you get what you pay for. OK facilities and clean rooms but not much else. We stayed here 2 nights just so we could be close to Universal Studios but in hindsight somewhere in Hollywood or LA would have been better, there isn't much else in Burbank and I wouldn't recommend staying here...

Great place to stay. Location was great to get many places. Street noise was minimal. Parking is included in the cost of the rooms. Very clean, attentive staff. For the price it was a great place in a really good neighborhood.

My wife and I had to stay in a pet friendly hotel while our house was being fumigated (don't ask!) and we landed on the Safari Inn. The staff could not have been more pleasant, accommodating and helpful! We had a great time here. Whether you're a fan of True Romance or not, I'd recommend this charming hotel.

Loved the overall retro feel that the Safari evokes. Extremely clean and and located in a great area. Actually felt like i could breath in Burbank and dont get this feeling anywhere else in L.A. Loved the awesome pool and swimming under the retro neon sign . Would stay here again in a heartbeat !!!
