Safari Inn, a Coast Hotel
A great choice in Burbank
Amazin quality and comfort of the room. The staff is really kind and helpful. The room was cleaned every day. The place is really quiet. The hotel has a really distinct and typical American design.
You have a free shuttle from the hotel to some places in LA and to the airport.
You may feel a bit unsecure cause there are no corridors and the room’s doors are facing the street. But burbank is one of the most secure places as I’ve been told
There is no breakfast included. You have a restaurant near it (that they work with) or some small places where you can go to eat.
But overall I really enjoyed my stay there! I really recommend it.
We stayed here during a recent trip to Universal Studios. The rooms and property are clean, very cutely decorated. It is a convenient location, with restaurants nearby. It was a good value and suited our needs perfectly.
As Seen on True Romance
You know that great fight scene Alabama had in Quentin Tarantino’s movie, True Romance? I thought it would be fun to spend the night at the motel where it took place and re-watch the movie there. (The hubby and I only live two cities away.) We hooked up a computer to the television via HDMI cord to access Amazon Prime movies, picked up some Porto’s for dinner, and there you have it! We also ended up doing the Warner Brothers VIP Studio Tour.
The hotel staff was super nice and the room was clean and tidy. That being said, it is still an inn/motel, so expect the rooms to be acceptable, not luxurious. The bedding has been through the wash a lot and the carpet could use replacing. It’s on the higher end of a motel price (We paid $140); but, you get free internet, free parking, a great Burbank location, and –for those that care– the property has been used for a handful of movies and television shows. It was fun for a kitchy weekend away, and we’re glad we did it.
Stuff in the Room: Fridge Bottle Opener Ice Bucket Coffee Maker Iron/Ironing Board Shampoo/Conditioner/Soap/Lotion HDTV Luggage Rack (Note that the clothes hanging space is limited and the hangers are annoying)
Hotel staff heroic response to emergency
Due to an unexpected crisis, my elderly mother needed to be housed in a hotel for several days until I could get to L.A. to help her. I arranged for her to stay at the Safari Inn, not realizing that she would need extensive personal care. The manager contacted me few days later to advise me that my mother was not ambulatory, and their housekeeping and catering staff were helping her navigate around her room and delivering all of her meals. The manager was naturally very concerned but was willing to keep up their valiant efforts for another day until I could get there. My husband and I arrived and were able to get appropriate care for my mother (who is doing much better now). My husband and I stayed at the hotel for another night or two, and were very satisfied with our stay and the amenities.
I am deeply grateful to the management and staff of this hotel for coming to the aid of an elderly woman, far exceeding their “business obligation”. While this was of course an extremely unusual circumstance, I think their response speaks to the caring and commitment of the staff. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel for that reason.
Clean and Great Location
Visiting family and Nickelodeon Studios 6 days. Helpful staff, older place but very clean. Were so pleased we will be returning in Dec for another short stay oner New Years and the Rose Bowl. Glad to find this place since Burbank.
