You know that great fight scene Alabama had in Quentin Tarantino's movie, True Romance? I thought it would be fun to spend the night at the motel where it took place and re-watch the movie there. (The hubby and I only live two cities away.) We hooked up a computer to the television via HDMI cord to access Amazon Prime... More

Due to an unexpected crisis, my elderly mother needed to be housed in a hotel for several days until I could get to L.A. to help her. I arranged for her to stay at the Safari Inn, not realizing that she would need extensive personal care. The manager contacted me few days later to advise me that my mother was... More

My son recently stayed at this hotel with a group of actors from NYC. He was not aware that this is a Pet Friendly hotel, as the only place it is listed is on their website. No signage upon check in, nor did the staff make him aware of the situation. In addition, they said no pets were allowed on... More

Don't let the retro facade put you off, rooms are clean but on the small side but at 50 bucks a night cheaper than most other hotels in the area, the Safari is good value overall. Try the Mexican piquito mas it's fantastic!

I selected this hotel based on the comments I read here. The room is average, clean and comfortable. I decided to use the fitness center, but I realized the Air conditioning was not working, and instead they put a very dusty fan which is not what is needed. Besides, the lights turn off automatically every few minutes and you have... More

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...
