Enjoyed staying here. The kids loved the room and the pool. We will be coming back soon. I loved that there was a shuttle to and from universal studios. I loved the fact that there were alot of stores and restaurants close by.

We wanted a place close to Universal Studios, our main reason for booking here. We booked our Universal Studios tickets and motel at the same time, chosen because of the convenience of the complimentary shuttle that runs between the motel and park. Pickup times need to be prearranged and our driver was early/on time for each use of the shuttle....

A nice, fun place in a nice, fun place! We only spent one night but it was clean, quiet, felt safe and comfortable, too. We brought our dogs on this trip and the safari inn accommodated them, too! The maid service was very thorough and worked hard cleaning inside and outside the rooms!

It's close to universal studios and downtown. A little dated and a bit on the pricey side. But it was clean and close to what we needed. There is a little Chinese restaurant across the street and it was pretty good.

Nice, quaint hotel in a great and convenient location. Clean rooms and a nice pool and sundeck space. The staff were very nice and helpful and local restaurants and drugstores were within walking distance.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a fab time in a one bed efficiency style room. Comfortable, CLEAN, well equipped and a lovely end to our LA area trip. There's a communal microwave for use in the guest laundry and vending area. We ate at the Olives Bistro next door, the Talleyrand across the road and had good...

Great location for Universal, Hollywood and Burbank. Clean property, friendly staff. Shuttle service to Universal saved on parking. Beds are smallish doubles, so maybe try and get a larger room if sleeping with your child is like sleeping in a washing machine! Rooms are clean, staff are great and so is location. Shuttle to Universal Studios is great.

Very comfortable,clean and friendly. Easy parking, dated but well maintained facilities (loved the bottle opener on the wall), nice pool (even had an elevated sun deck). I found the place completely chill and unpretentious. Best hotel/motel experience I've had in a while.

The Safari Inn looks like a motel, but has more of a hotel feel to it. It's easily accessible from the 134 and I-5 freeways and has ample free parking. Staff are friendly and my room was spotless. My concern was that it would be noisy, but the only noise I could hear was from guests holding a loud conversation...

“Room 128 is dark and quite noisy - it's adjacent to the laundry and vending machine room, which gets a lot of traction and people slam the door to it all.the. time. So if you're after one of the efficiency style rooms, ask for one on the second floor. We had one night in #128 and then 3 nights in 228 - much better. ”

“The hotel is just off a main street not too far from a hospital, as such during certain parts of the day it can be a bit noisy. If you're a light sleeper, pack a pair of ear plugs and you should be fine.”
