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

we were in one of the bigger rooms I think. It was clean and beautiful place with everything you need! great people there to help you out with advising things, arranging super shuttle etc. Next to the hotel there is another hotel which serves breakfast with 10% discount if you come from Safari-Inn (you need a little note for it)....

I booked a block of rooms for our guests who were attending a wedding nearby. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and patient with the many requests for directions, etc. Everyone found the rooms to be very satisfactory and a good deal given the price of a room. Rooms were clean, pleasantly decorated and I found the mattress to... More

check-in was quick with an online reservation. room was clean and the staff made the room like new the next day. Olive's Bistro is really good food and is next door. The chinese food across the street is also great.

Booked this "hotel" through Hotwire and it was compared to Hilton Garden Inn, Marriott Courtyard etc. This is a motel that Hollywood has used for TV shows and movies. It has a retro vibe that really needs updating. Our room was clean and we were able to check in early. Staff were nice. Upon check in, they asked you to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel. I have never been so impressed. First off, the rooms were very decently priced for a night. My friend and I landed at around 9 in the morning. We got to the hotel by about 9:30 and our room was already all set and ready to go. The woman at the front desk was... More
