The room was comfortable ~ especially for the price. It was convenient having the restaurant right across the street at the "sister" hotel. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly. You were welcomed with a smile and greeting the minute you walked in and the hospitality didn't end there.... More

The front desk staff was amazing. The shuttle took a little bit longer than we thought because of traffic so you need to take that into account if using it. The pool is lovely. The rooms are the bare minimum and not the nicest but I would stay again if I was going to Universal.

We choose this hotel due to the free shuttle to Universal Studios which we were grateful to use. However we found the hotel is not so convenient for visiting other tourist attractions by public transport eg: Hollywood Boulevard. Hotel room itself was comfortable and staff friendly.

We enjoyed our stay at the Safari Inn, staff ( especially Reception )were always courteous and helpful. The room was comfy and clean. Gym and pool ( heated) facilities excellent. The shuttle service was excellent for getting around locally and restaurants and cafes within walking distance.

Since they have a shuttle stayed here, was very happy with room, shuttle and overall service. Room immaculate and bed comfortable, staff very helpful and excellent restaurants within short driving distance (1-2 miles). Great value and shuttle to Universal makes it a good choice to stay, may appear dated, but very clean.

Great price through AAA, friendly staff and throwback appeal. Shuttle was a great perk! We were very close to Universal and I doubt there could be a better deal. Reservationists were very helpful & everyone was so very friendly. Not the most modern but then again, I did not expect it to be.

I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this hotel was. I stayed in a suite with a group of five people and it was very clean, comfortable, and accommodating. The staff was extremely nice and responsive to questions and concerns. The location is great too. I would stay here again.

I will definitely recommend Safari Inn to anyone planning to visit Universal Studios. The Safari Inn/Universal Studios package is a GREAT deal.

Great motel , very convenient location. Friendly staff , clean rooms. You can walk around the manicured neighborhoods. It kind of feels like Pleasantville. The restaurant is very good! And I just love the 50s style sign out front.
