Despite the retro-chic vibe outside, room interiors have experienced minimal updating. You are still staying in a somewhat tired, somewhat shabby motor court. Furnishings are cheap, TV is a Vertex, whatever that is, and small. Carpet is thin, functional, cheap motel carpet. Shampoo and conditioner from dispensers in the shower. Cleanliness, price, and location were good as long as you... More

Friendly staff. Good value. Rooms are a little dated, but you don't come to California to sit in your room. Very comfortable bed. I would stay here again. I walked across the street to the other property (the anabelle) and ate in the restaurant for breakfast. Food was mostly reasonable and good.

I mentioned that we chose another hotel for the nostalgic aspect of it and our experience was less than exemplary. This was on the other end of the spectrum. This met and exceeded our expectations! It was so cool and kitchy. A lot of films have been made at this location, which added to the cool factor for us. Our... More

The Front Desk Clerks were professional and helpful. Overall I had a very positive experience. i wanted to go to a seafood restaurant and they provided with a list of places and it was quite an impressive list.

Warm reception, comfortable room, and helpful staff for what was a difficult family health situation. The assistance provided with my luggage, travel and referral for meal was excellent. It was much appreciated.

The Safari Inn looks liked the two-story drive-up motel you've seen in movies, where the child abductor is holed up facing the SWAT team. Because it is: in Burbank, everything gets used for making movies, and they have a whole wall of posters for movies that have had scenes shot at the motel. It looks like an Econolodge, but it's...

This motel is clean and well run. The staff is friendly and accomodating. Our driver to Warner Brothers should give lessons to Beverly Wilshire!!! The motel is close to all the "Hollywood" "fun" and is run by Coast Hotels. Our room was clean and comfortable and the furnishings matched and we thematice. Olives Bistro is steps away and has a...

Retro Motel, clean with friendly staff. Nice pool area and close to many attractions. Choice of restaurants nearby including a Starbucks a block away. The neon sign is right out of the fifties and makes it easy to spot he motel when driving. 5 minutes from Burbank airport.
