We love the Safari Inn
We always stay at the Safari Inn. Burbank is nice and quite. There’s plenty to do near by and it’s fairly central to most things. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. The pool is great and never crowded. We highly recommend this place!
Short visit at a great place
We visited Universal studios and had a quick turn around. I made the reservation after seeing the website and the retro look of the hotel, I was not disappointed. The hotel sign was great, the lobby was clean and welcoming. We did not get to swim but the heated pool and upstairs deck was clean and 70’s looking. We had a room with double beds. Tv was BIG, a bottle opener was mounted on the wall and the toilet paper had a cute fan on it. We also met the lobby love birds, Alabama & Clarence, ( named from characters in movie filmed there , True Romance). Only issue was the heavy footed person in the room above ours, clomp clomp clomp. Ask for a room on second floor to avoid this.
Awesome trip time in Burbank, CA
Great place to stay and convenient to Hollywood, Universal Studios, Studios, Griffith Park and Southern California. You can avoid highways to get to most places. Airport is close and convenient. The hotel has been used in movies and tv shows. Very 50′s style motel.
Hollywood, 70's style...a true time machine
The hotel is very 70s nostalgic in a fun way but has updated rooms. We had 2 rooms, one with a kitchen, one just 2 queens. The 2 bed room was crampt, but clean. The room with a kitchen was set up for disabilities. We went for my daughter’s 16th birthday. They had a blast and took the shuttle to Universal. The pool is super tiny however it is clean and heated. I actually enjoyed the mom and pop feel of the whole property. It was very nostalgic of 1970s vacations. The neighborhood houses and small businesses will give you that same vibe. The area is very safe and quiet, there is a cheap market a mile away and some cute fun restaurants in a short drive of a distance. The staff was helpful.
Retro cool location.
The hotel has been renovated. So many of the older reviews do not reflect these updates. The rooms are now much nicer and modern. The location makes up for it. You are close to many tourist spots. The bathrooms could use some refreshing and updating but they were clean.
