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

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

Nice and clean rooms, excellent staff. Nice and nostalgic. had a wonderful rest, and will definitely return! Wife forgot her cell phone in the room, and they were great to make sure that we could retrieve it.
