Clean and roomy! Refrigerator, coffee maker, WIFI and cable TV. Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of free parking. History - Apollo 13, Coach Carter,... More

This is an old motel on a very busy street in a business district. We were staying here for an event at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center and it is handy for that. The rooms face the street with nothing to block the noise. Whoever stated it is quiet when you close the door must have a hearing disability because... More

Thank you for your comments. We always want our guests to have a positive experience and be completely satisfied with their stay. We truly apologize that this wasn't the case.

My sister and I arrived after midnight fairly frazzled due to our sudden need to be near our other sister in Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. The gentleman who greeted us carried our luggage up to the second floor and REFUSED our tip. The room was spotless, comfortable and had a great retro appeal. We felt safe and walked everywhere...

If you want a safe, clean, homey place to stay while in Burbank, and visiting the LA area... stay here at the Safari Inn. The rooms are beautiful, the staff make you feel at home... you are close to all the amazing sites and attractions.

An interesting place. I booked because I was curious about this place, its history and one reviewer said it was work one stay. Rooms are a bit sparce in comparison to most rooms I book at this price, so would be great to see facility warm the interiors and amendments in the rooms up. Basic upgrades would be great. I... More

Thank you for your comments. Guest satisfaction is of the utmost importance and we take all suggestions seriously. Our guest rooms have blinds as well as blackout curtains that will keep out the light even from the sign in the evening. We are always looking for ways to improve our guest rooms. Thank you for taking the time to provide... More

We stay here every time in the last 10 years that we have visited my parents in Sunland. We are never disappointed and the staff is always ready to help. Its location is near to downtown Burbank and close to the airport. Its has very reasonable rates for the area and there plenty of places to eat inexpensively near by.

When we first arrived we realized that we left one bag in the van we took from the airport to the hotel, the front desk attendant was quite instrumental in tracking down the service that delivered us and had our bag back within an hour with 100% of it's content (medications, computer and camera). Breakfast at the connecting restaurant was... More

Very happy with this accommodation; reminiscent of a 50's style. Rooms were clean and up-to-date. Staff was very friendly and printed our boarding passes for us. We were thrilled to learn that it has been used as a film location. The Olive Bistro at the 'sister' hotel was convenient and had good food. Very close to Warner Bros Studio and... More
