We assumed this would look and feel like a budget property. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the accommodations were and how friendly the staff was. Super clean and neat. Loved the retro feel and the thought of who might have stayed here back in the day. So comfortable and easy to find.

Love it! Great location. Burbank classic. It's a fun place, quirky friendly staff. Walk-able to Olive Bistro - descent restaurant with a great group of waiters and waitresses. Funky old Burbank sheik.

Wifi was fine and our room fine also- great beds and pillows!;-)The area seems safe and it is easy to do some... More

The hotel is in an area of Downtown Burbank where we definitely felt safe to stay. They also own The Coast Anabelle Hotel next door, just steps away. This is where we ended up parking because our SUV with racks wouldn't fit under the carport that you have to drive under to park in their lot. But the staffing was... More

The full kitchen in the suite is exactly what it says. It includes microwave, refrigerator, and stove/oven. The hotel also provides the dishes and pots and pans to cook with. There was plenty of room for 4 people without feeling like you were on top of each other.

We stayed at this hotel as it was close to my daughter's home. Not knowing what to expect (as we have stayed at our chain hotels), we were very pleased. The room was incredible as we had the largest one with a full kitchen, bedroom, living room. It was quiet, bed was comfortable. The pool was nice as it was... More

We stayed at the Safari for 5 nights. It was a remarkable stay. While the hotel was obviously a 50's vintage the accommodations were very contemporary. Good bed. Great pillows. Comfortable surroundings. Excellent service. Plus, the Safari is conveniently located to all the studios, downtown Burbank, and major Freeways.

Nothing fancy but it's clean, the bed is comfortable and the location is fantastic. Staff is friendly. Only negative is the parking situation. If you have a large car, expect a ding or two. I only got dinged once and I was driving a Ford Taurus. The most ridiculous parking lot I've ever experienced. At least it's free parking. WIFI... More

We had to move from 104 to 204 due to being next to the supply room for the chambermaids. We appreciate that they were able to move us. However, the motel is very basic for the amount of money we paid. Also, the sofa bed didn't roll out properly. Front desk was not particularly helpful when recommending local coffee shops... More
