I'm glad we found this hidden gem of Burbank. This is a very nostalgic motel with modern amenities and great employees. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. A noisy air conditioning unit was replaced with a new one before we returned from the day's adventures. Shuttle service and drivers were great. The Safari Inn will certainly be in our travel...

This has become our go-to place for LA trips. Looks and feels like it's out of the '50s/'60s given the cool neon sign and rooms exiting to the outside. But it's well-maintained, has friendly service and is conveniently located. My son loves the pool, and the place has a family feel. The only thing missing is old Route 66 running... More

The beds were firm but very comfortable. We were able to leave our car there for the day while at Universal Studios and even store some... More

Aside from a few minor things (coffee maker didn't work very well) I thought this place was very solid. The location is perfect. Easy access to freeways, and the traffic in Burbank is so much lighter than the rest of LA, getting around was really pretty easy. The Motel is older, but it has been maintained so well that it...

The Safari in was clean, comfortable, with good service and amenities, and at a very reasonable price. It is conveniently located near Universal Studios Theme Park. The neighborhood was pleasant with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance, and the neighborhood felt safe. There was a perfectly adequate pool and fitness room. The adjacent restaurant had quality fresh food.... More

They should have a service for guest that are coming from LAX airport and one to Griffith Park to see the Hollywood sign. Have more activities to do around the area. Should have complementary breakfast .

Rooms were clean and as expected. Did not use the pool, but it did look inviting if we had more time to use it. Front desk was responsive to needs and very friendly. Shuttle operator was very friendly and professional.
