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.

I would stay again if in the area. At check-in we were welcomed and felt appreciated for the business. The rooms were clean. The beds were comfy and it was close to everywhere we needed to be. Good value...

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!
