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 !!!

This is a quaint little hotel - more like motor inn - right out of the 60s. It's two levels, side by side rooms with exterior facing doors. It has a nice pool, very friendly and helpful staff, a small fitness room, free wifi and free parking. The restaurant next door in the sister hotel is a bit pricey so... More

This hotel is very convenient and affordable if you are going to Universal Studios. It is clean and comfortable but it is a little older. However, this hotel has a very cool retro look. In fact I just noticed that it was used in the movie, Apollo 13.

We reserved 2 rooms for 2 families to stay the night before our trip to Universal Studios. The staff is VERY friendly and accommodating. They made sure to give us 2 rooms next to each other even though the hotel was fully booked for the day. The pool is heated and the kids loved an evening swim. Proximity to Universal... More

Room is very nice; pleasing and nicely designed decor. Clean. On a major street but quiet at night. Has a pool although we did not use it. Bathroom is nice and clean as well. Pleasantly surprised....you never know.
