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.

We had a nice stay at Safari Inn. The front desk people were all very helpful. They gave us very good information on how to save money at Universal Studio. The kids enjoyed swimming in the pool and breakfast on the pool deck was fun. It was located in a safe area and close to where we wanted to visit.

Had an extended stay at the Safari Inn, due to my sons relocation to California. The motel was very clean, the rooms were comfortable, no noise issues. Pool was nice size, very refreshing. I especially likes the deck above the pool, great place to bring morning coffee or lunch. The motel is handy to Burbank, the Studios, the Hills and... More

I was in LA for workshops so I wanted something clean and inexpensive...it was clean, inexpensive and the restaurant "olive's" had great and inexpensive food! It wasn't the Hilton, but I didn't pay for Hilton either so I was very very happy with what I got!

My family and I had a great experience at this hotel. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful and fixed a mistake I had made when booking before we had arrived. Parking out the front of the room, comfortable bed. We would stay again if we were in the area.

The only thing related to a safari is the tacky statue of the elephant in the lobby, and the zebra coverlet on the bed. This is a two story motel that tries to increase its appeal with a funky name. Parking is right outside the room, so you often hear cars and people talking. Thin carpets and padding results in... More

I traveled with two friends to California for a little getaway to the beach and Six Flags. My friend recommended we stay at the Sarafi Inn. I have to say the hotel was great! The property was very well maintained and clean. The room was also very clean. The front desk ladies provided great service. I really enjoyed my stay... More
