we were in one of the bigger rooms I think. It was clean and beautiful place with everything you need! great people there to help you out with advising things, arranging super shuttle etc. Next to the hotel there is another hotel which serves breakfast with 10% discount if you come from Safari-Inn (you need a little note for it)....

I booked a block of rooms for our guests who were attending a wedding nearby. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and patient with the many requests for directions, etc. Everyone found the rooms to be very satisfactory and a good deal given the price of a room. Rooms were clean, pleasantly decorated and I found the mattress to... More

Booked this "hotel" through Hotwire and it was compared to Hilton Garden Inn, Marriott Courtyard etc. This is a motel that Hollywood has used for TV shows and movies. It has a retro vibe that really needs updating. Our room was clean and we were able to check in early. Staff were nice. Upon check in, they asked you to... More

I recently stayed at this hotel. I have never been so impressed. First off, the rooms were very decently priced for a night. My friend and I landed at around 9 in the morning. We got to the hotel by about 9:30 and our room was already all set and ready to go. The woman at the front desk was... More

Amazin quality and comfort of the room. The staff is really kind and helpful. The room was cleaned every day. The place is really quiet. The hotel has a really distinct and typical American design. You have a free shuttle from the hotel to some places in LA and to the airport. You may feel a bit unsecure cause there... More

We stayed here during a recent trip to Universal Studios. The rooms and property are clean, very cutely decorated. It is a convenient location, with restaurants nearby. It was a good value and suited our needs perfectly.

You know that great fight scene Alabama had in Quentin Tarantino's movie, True Romance? I thought it would be fun to spend the night at the motel where it took place and re-watch the movie there. (The hubby and I only live two cities away.) We hooked up a computer to the television via HDMI cord to access Amazon Prime... More

Due to an unexpected crisis, my elderly mother needed to be housed in a hotel for several days until I could get to L.A. to help her. I arranged for her to stay at the Safari Inn, not realizing that she would need extensive personal care. The manager contacted me few days later to advise me that my mother was... More

Visiting family and Nickelodeon Studios 6 days. Helpful staff, older place but very clean. Were so pleased we will be returning in Dec for another short stay oner New Years and the Rose Bowl. Glad to find this place since Burbank.
