Safari Inn is in a great location for studio visits. it is clean, cute and reasonably priced. We will definitely use this hotel again when we visit our family in Burbank. The restaurant at their sister hotel, Coast Anabelle is great.

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. It is very conveniently located halfway between Universal Studios Hollywood and Warner Brothers Studio. We were visiting both during a recent trip to Southern California and were very satisfied staying at this motel. Let me assure you, even it is a motel, it is modernized, yet still retaining the original feel. The front... More

I have always wanted to stay at the Safari Inn due to how many TV Shows and Movies it has been in. We visit LA at east 3 - 4 times a year and always drive past it, but never stayed. This time I decided to splurge and stay there! The room was super clean. They had a mini fridge... More

Slept like a baby on night one after a lot of travel and being awake for over 36 hours, however the sound night of being in a suite, the best they had, I found out the wall of the bedroom, backed onto the ice machine and vending machine room on the ground floor and was kept awake by the noisy...

Very clean and conveniently located to the Hollywood area in Burbank. Pleasant staff, a nicely restored "vintage" motel experience with an African Safari feel. Big comfy bed, flat screen TV, and located within walking distance of a couple of decent restaurants, small shops, a 7-11, etc.

Room was clean and had all of the necessities for a short stay. However, the lodgings look dated. There is a supermarket and pharmacy close by. A Starbucks within a couple of blocks and a few scattered restaurants, which we did not go to and cannot comment on them. The freeway is about a mile away and major shopping is... More

This was my second stay at the Safari Inn in the past year. I cannot beat the value and location. I will very likely stay there again in the future. The room prices in the low $100s and the fantastic location cannot be beat. Luxury it isn't. Value it is.

A group of family and friends stayed here for a family celebration that was happening in Burbank. The location was ideal and the staff was great, very friendly, accommodating and efficient. The rooms were minimal, but clean, but the beds were terribly uncomfortable. We occupied 5 rooms and everyone in our party talked about the poor quality of the beds... More

Large rooms and bathrooms with easy space for 2 adults and a dog. Historic motel, close to everything in Burbank and easy access to freeway for other LA neighborhoods. Gorgeous neon sign out front, reminiscent of yester-year.

It's a motel... Hyped to 4 stars. No frills, not very clean..not sure if the 4-5 stars are given by folks related to the hotel owners. We were there for a night glad it wasn't more than that. It is very close to Universal studios so that was the only plus. Won't visit again for sure.
