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

My son recently stayed at this hotel with a group of actors from NYC. He was not aware that this is a Pet Friendly hotel, as the only place it is listed is on their website. No signage upon check in, nor did the staff make him aware of the situation. In addition, they said no pets were allowed on... More

Don't let the retro facade put you off, rooms are clean but on the small side but at 50 bucks a night cheaper than most other hotels in the area, the Safari is good value overall. Try the Mexican piquito mas it's fantastic!

I selected this hotel based on the comments I read here. The room is average, clean and comfortable. I decided to use the fitness center, but I realized the Air conditioning was not working, and instead they put a very dusty fan which is not what is needed. Besides, the lights turn off automatically every few minutes and you have... More
