Safari Inn, a Coast Hotel
Loved this place !
Loved the overall retro feel that the Safari evokes. Extremely clean and and located in a great area. Actually felt like i could breath in Burbank and dont get this feeling anywhere else in L.A. Loved the awesome pool and swimming under the retro neon sign . Would stay here again in a heartbeat !!!
Retro stay in Burbank
Great little find. Feels like stepping into a movie set. Great stay comfortable room, very friendly staff. In the heart of Burbank. Was great to sit out in the evening with a glass of wine. Good amenities. would definitely stay here again.
Nostalgic but not for everyone
This is a quaint little hotel – more like motor inn – right out of the 60s. It’s two levels, side by side rooms with exterior facing doors. It has a nice pool, very friendly and helpful staff, a small fitness room, free wifi and free parking. The restaurant next door in the sister hotel is a bit pricey so we didn’t eat there but it looked nice and the selection was plentiful (I had to go over when the Safari’s soda machine was out of soda). It’s not close to a lot if you’re without a car but a short drive to restaurants and activities (like Warner Bros. lots). Unfortunately, I found the bed very uncomfortable and the sheets are so small the fitted sheet doesn’t stay “fitted”. The AC was too cold if the fan was high enough to stir the air but there was no circulation if the fan was turned down enough for the temperature to be comfortable (we were there in August).
I thought it would be okay but I guess it was a little too old-fashioned for me. For the area, though, it’s hard to beat the price.
Close to Universal Studios
This hotel is very convenient and affordable if you are going to Universal Studios. It is clean and comfortable but it is a little older. However, this hotel has a very cool retro look. In fact I just noticed that it was used in the movie, Apollo 13.
Great Burbank Bargain
We reserved 2 rooms for 2 families to stay the night before our trip to Universal Studios. The staff is VERY friendly and accommodating. They made sure to give us 2 rooms next to each other even though the hotel was fully booked for the day. The pool is heated and the kids loved an evening swim. Proximity to Universal Studios was amazing. Also Disney studios and many others in surrounding area. Beds were NOT uncomfortable and rooms were very clean. We will definitely be coming back!!
