“I LOVE the Safari Inn!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I have stayed at the Safari Inn four times so far, and if it's at all possible, it gets better and better every single time. The rooms are very nice, always clean and have recently been redecorated. The staff was ALWAYS accommodating, no matter how silly my questions may have been. The Inn is centrally located near several of the most popular tourist sights, yet it's still nestled in a lovely little area of Burbank, which also offers so much to see and do. There are also several wonderful places to eat just within walking distance of the Safari Inn, especially Olives Bistro next door, which I highly recommend!

I have loved each and every one of my stays, which ranged from a weekend to a full week. I hope that I have the opportunity to stay there again one day. I highly, highly recommend it!

Room Tip: There is a junior suite available with a full kitchen available for lengthy stays. It is basically a...

Despite location on main road, I had a very pleasant week-long stay. I was out a lot at LA Book Festival, Huntington Gardens, Getty Museum and found location very handy for both local attractions and convenience stores. The neighborhood is delightful walking area. Room maintenance/cleaning was excellent and upper deck at pool area was perfect for private sunning. Very satisfied with accommodations and would definitely recommend to others

We came here for a weekend getaway. I purchased their toom packages with Universal Studio and Warner Brothers Studio tours. I was pleased that the hotel staff has perfectly organized our tours and they even printed directions of the places where we wanted to go to. The room was very clean and spacious. The hotel is located at a quiet and peaceful place in Burbank. Convenience stores, salons, restaurants are just walking distance from the Hotel considering that the price is very reasonable. I'm definitely coming back and I will even recommend this place to my family and friends.

Worst experience ever! Door to adjoining guest room as connected through their bathroom and close to where I was sleeping. Spent all night listening to the other Hotel guest making horrible grunting noise for several hours at night and early the next morning. Asked to be moved. Hotel called the guest and asked to quiet down. Didn't really do much. Horrible experience. If you want a good nights sleep...do not stay at this hotel...you won't get one.

Stayed here with my husband for 3 days and 2 nice. Front desk staff was nice and helpful. Rooms were big and clean, same with the bathrooms. Pools open and heated until ten. Great location with lots around it!
Oliver's Bistro that they push to a lot for food and drinks is expensive and not very good.

Great location, easy to find and the staff was delightful. Will definitely stay here again when I am in the area! The staff was very accomadating and offered useful tips during our stay. I was very impressed when I recieved an email prior to our stay welcoming us and offering local tips and recommendations. My kids loved the animal print decor (even if the bed frame didn't match the decor..lol).

The only thing we wished they had was a hot tub to soak our sore, chilly bodies in.

I love the Safari Inn !! It has such great character !! The hotel staff from the maintance men, housekeepers, and front desk were kind, approachable and very pleasant. The location of the Safari Inn was excellent !!! I recently just recommended this Inn to a friend that is planning a trip next month. I was traveling with my 16 year old goddaughter and felt safe all the time. It was our first trip to Cali and when we return we will definalty stay at the Safari Inn. Actually I have a friend that lives in Burbank a California native who recommended this hotel. Also if you are using a debit card there is an additional fee of a $100 dollars held on your debit card. I recieved this money back on my card within a few days so its not an inconvience at all.

Again THANK YOU SAFARI INN for making my first trip to California the best.
