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!

My family and I had a great experience at this hotel. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful and fixed a mistake I had made when booking before we had arrived. Parking out the front of the room, comfortable bed. We would stay again if we were in the area.

The only thing related to a safari is the tacky statue of the elephant in the lobby, and the zebra coverlet on the bed. This is a two story motel that tries to increase its appeal with a funky name. Parking is right outside the room, so you often hear cars and people talking. Thin carpets and padding results in... More

I traveled with two friends to California for a little getaway to the beach and Six Flags. My friend recommended we stay at the Sarafi Inn. I have to say the hotel was great! The property was very well maintained and clean. The room was also very clean. The front desk ladies provided great service. I really enjoyed my stay... More

Screaming at the top of her lungs that she couldn't breathe banging on my wall. I honestly thought I was going to get... More

Folks, from Indianapolis, Indiana and stayed a full 7 days. I am missing this place already and was sad to leave. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. I was able to sleep soundly and didn't experience anything negative, AT ALL. No bugs of any kind. Room was clean and neat. Most impressive was the staff. I love their uniform as... More

Stayed two nights here and could not have been happier with it. Really clean, spacious rooms. Great location for warner brothers and universal pictures tours too. It's also instantly recognisable if you've seen the movie True Romance which was the icing on the cake for me!

The Safari Inn is an old- fashioned drive up motel that is in excellent condition with a few upgrades. The beds and lines were new and comfortable. The pool was warm and refreshing with nice lounge chairs around it. The food at the next door hotel was delicious and very reasonable. There were great happy hour drink and food specials.... More
