Safari Inn is in a great location for studio visits. it is clean, cute and reasonably priced. We will definitely use this hotel again when we visit our family in Burbank. The restaurant at their sister hotel, Coast Anabelle is great.

Nice location motel
We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. It is very conveniently located halfway between Universal Studios Hollywood and Warner Brothers Studio. We were visiting both during a recent trip to Southern California and were very satisfied staying at this motel. Let me assure you, even it is a motel, it is modernized, yet still retaining the original feel. The front desk staff were the most helpful and accommodating I have seen at a hotel in decades. The allowed us to park two cars at the property even though we had only reserved one room. They allowed one car to park on the property before we could check in and the next day after we checked out. That alone was worth any price. I would stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend it. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that the beds are a little worn and the bottom sheet wasn’t a fitted sheet, just a flat sheet tucked in and it came up in the night. Also, there were only two pillows on each bed, so if you need more than one pillow when sleeping, I would recommend bringing one from home. I suppose I could have asked for more, I’m sure they would have accommodated. Other than that, it was a perfect place to stay!
Love this hotel
I have always wanted to stay at the Safari Inn due to how many TV Shows and Movies it has been in. We visit LA at east 3 – 4 times a year and always drive past it, but never stayed. This time I decided to splurge and stay there!
The room was super clean. They had a mini fridge in the room and a nice TV. There was plenty of parking even on Saturday night. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There was an elevator right by our room which was nice. The pool was heated but we didn’t have time to enjoy it. Burbank is centrally located to everything in the Los Angeles area. It didn’t take us too long to get anywhere except Disneyland, which without traffic was only 45 minutes away.
Beware that the walls are very thin and on our first night we could hear the guests in the room next to ours have an entire conversation at 2am. Other then that it was very quiet and enjoyable.
Shame about the second night,
Slept like a baby on night one after a lot of travel and being awake for over 36 hours, however the sound night of being in a suite, the best they had, I found out the wall of the bedroom, backed onto the ice machine and vending machine room on the ground floor and was kept awake by the noisy fridges, avoid room 128 like the plague if you are a light sleeper. Management put me in another room but was not of the same standard, they discounted my whole accommodation accordingly though
my Safari was pleasant
Very clean and conveniently located to the Hollywood area in Burbank.
Pleasant staff, a nicely restored “vintage” motel experience with an African Safari feel.
Big comfy bed, flat screen TV, and located within walking distance of a couple of decent restaurants, small shops, a 7-11, etc.
