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

This Inn has the location. Right down from Warner Brothers Studio where we watched a taping of The Big Bang Theory. Also, a pilot was being filmed right in the Safari Inn while we were there. A true Hollywood experience. Also the accommodations were terrific!

We just got home from our vacation last night, so all of this info is very fresh in my mind. Our room was super clean, the motel was jammed pack and yet we had a peaceful sleep, no noise that we could hear at all. I especially loved the full size shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers! Coffee in the room, working tv,... More

I booked online through Southwest air and the price was great. It was just a one night stay. It's an old motel, but the rooms have a nice desk, chair, iron, coffeemaker and everything else I needed. The bed was fine and I liked that there were a variety of pillows on the bed. It was clean and updated. I... More

I had an extra night on my way to a very remote house in the mountains . I decided to stay in Burbank for night with my 8 year old daughter. This lovely old style motel reminded me of where my parents used to take us when we were going on overnight trips. Out of the 70"s. Very clean, one... More
