The Safari Inn is one of Burbank’s best kept historical landmarks—a wonderful blend of old Hollywood charm and modern amenities. We’re located right by both Universal and Warner Brothers Studios, and our complimentary shuttle will whisk you to the lots, whether you’re visiting on business or catching a taping of Ellen or any number of shows.

The hotel was nice, clean, and cozy. The location was very convenient with stores and restaurants within walking distance, and the hotel provided a free shuttle to Universal Studios. Nearby were several fun places to see including Nickelodeon Studios and Disney Studios.

I travel to Burbank every 3 months for Dr. appointments, My preferred place to stay is The Safari Inn because the Staff are always so nice & helpful, everything is very clean, and the location is close to anything I might need & UCLA Burbank. I would even stay here if I was just coming down to see the sites.

I will never stay in this hotel again we just seen a Big warm crawling on the wall so I took a picture of it and went to the office to let them know and to ask them if there’s worms in the room which the coworker said yes and they had already notified about the warms and she said she’ll going to notify the maintenance tomorrow which that’s not going to help The situation right now and there was a lady in the office and she said she noticed they had a lot of warm outside near their cooler! 😡

A trip to the Safari Inn was a great recommendation! The location is perfect, safe down from the studios in Burbank, and clean! As two young women in our 20s we felt that the Safari Inn was perfect! The staff is the kindest hotel staff I have ever had encounters with, and are readily available by call or at the desk. The rooms are WAY bigger then expected and are clean! Floors, mirrors, shower, bed, dressers... you name it, it is CLEAN! They have rooms with a full kitchen, yes FULL kitchen. The pool and deck area are also great extras to have fun at and enjoy a phone call or some breakfast. Right around the corner is a walkable CVS for any missing items forgotten. I would recommend this place 100 times!

We were visiting California for the first time and I wanted a hotel with a central location to places that we wanted to visit. Safari inn met that criteria. It is located near downtown Burbank. My main reason for choosing the hotel was that they provided transportation to many of the places that we were going to visit, such as Universal Studios, Warner Brothers Studios, and downtown Burbank. The hotel itself has been used in many movies and TV shows, so I knew it was an older hotel with a lot of ambience. It is definitely not a fancy, upscale hotel, but it is very family-friendly and met all our needs. The room was clean, the air conditioner worked very well, it was well stocked with supplies, the beds were comfortable, The view of the mountains was beautiful, and best of all, the transportation and driver were excellent. We used the transportation to go to Universal and Warner Brothers and the driver would point out sites and fill us in on the history of the area as we drove. We also used it just to go have dinner and to go to the comedy club in downtown Burbank. The driver made sure that he took us exactly where we wanted to go and was always there when it was time to pick this up. The hotel is also near several restaurants and has a CVS right next door, which was very convenient. I walked a block every morning to the McDonald's to get coffee and we had breakfast at Talleyrand's one morning, which is only two blocks away. Overall, we had an excellent stay and I appreciate the friendliness of all of the workers.

Basic but nice, great location, plenty of parking, nice pool, safe area. This motel isn't fancy, but everything worked, has an ice machine and outdoor lounge area. The price is very good for Los Angeles. The staff was nice.

Great hotel, handy for the places we wanted to visit, great if you also want to do tourist attractions. Staff are really helpful, the room is nice and clean, we staying in a disabled room and it was well laid out for my husband. Olives Bistro close by is good for breakfast and dinner if you don't have other plans, we usually did but were too tired to go out one evening and ate dinner there, great staff and great food. I would definitely stay here again. It's not a luxury resort hotel but for our needs it definitely hits the spot, plus we love the neon sign it makes us smile!

I lived in Burbank 50 years and now that I'm gone, and needed a local hotel, I thought I'd give it a try. Great spot for families too. Kitchens available. For adult entertainment there is the sister hotel across the street if in need of a cocktail. I'm looking forward to the next time. Everyone is friendly and helpful.
