Love this place!
Everything was so great! Staff was excellent! The kids had a blast in the pool. Shuttle service was very professional, prompt and friendly! It was super easy and quick to get to Universal Studios using the hotel shuttle. We would definitely stay here again!

Great value for the money!
The Safari Inn is an older motel, but is very nice and super clean. The beds were very comfortable, the room was quiet, the air conditioner worked great and the wifi was really fast! Everyone we talked to at the front counter was very nice and helpful.
Some of the best perks of staying at this hotel are the free parking, the free shuttle to Universal Studios, the free wifi and the fact that there are many restaurants close by, several within walking distance!
My one tip would be if you plan to use their free shuttle, get on the schedule as early as you can. They can transport 12 passengers at a time and the van fills up. We ended up scheduling an earlier shuttle because the one we planned to take was already full.
comfortable & clean
I enjoyed my stay here at the Safai Inn. It was very cute how it was decorated and clean. We had a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family & friends as well i would stay here again. The staff was nice.

Loved it - minor grumbles only
Booked this place after it consistently came up in searches and wasn’t disappointed. It’s a hour from LAX and well situated for Hollywood and Universal and the trappings of north LA.
Scoring as a motel it probably gets a 5 – the only marker down for me was the parking with with a Suburban was very challenging and impossible after 7pm.
Rooms are a little dated but it adds to the charm and authenticity. More importantly the walls are not paper thin and the rooms are kept spotless by a small army of people tidying.
Pool area is great – not too big and not to small – we had the place to ourselves regularly despite being end of July which added to the delight of a tough day at a theme park or day trip.
Don’t get turned off by this place being a motel. It is operated just like a 4 star hotel. Staff and service ate exceptional. There were no issues at all with the room, very clean and everything was in order. Even the pool was great despite is lack of length, it had a shallow and deep end. Picked this place for its proximity to Universal Studios.
