Really enjoyed our stay here. Safari Inn offer a free shuttle to Universal Studios and Warner Bros studios which is great if you are visiting these attractions. McDonalds is about a 2min walk which was perfect for a morning coffee and a cheap breakfast. There is also a pharmacy and 7 Eleven next to the McDonalds, which was handy. The...

Safari Inn in Burbank is small and friendly, with rooms that aren't fancy but have everything you need. The deck overlooking the pool was the perfect place to sit and read a book or eat. We chose the hotel because it was inexpensive, but I was surprised at the level of service, especially the free shuttle to Universal Studios, the...

Travel like it's 1974! We enjoyed our stay at the Safari! Went to Universal Studios. Rooms were clean, simple, and sassy. So fun that Safari has been the set for movies and videos. Pool area good. No frills. Safe, central location. Beautiful view of Burbank Hills form the rooftop deck. Room windows could be a little bigger, but in the...

My 18 year old daughter and I stayed here last Friday night. The hotel has a vintage feel, but still nice and comfortable. The staff was amazing and provided a wonderful shuttle service. I would definitely stay here again if visiting this area in the future. Don't expect the Hilton, but it definitely met our needs.

Extremely friendly, accommodating and attentive staff in a smaller hotel which makes the guest feel more like you've been welcomed into their home rather than the typical 'big chain' hotel service. Perfect location - a 5 minute drive to Warner Bros Studio and Universal Studios. Rooms are very clean and updated. Shuttle service is prompt and very accommodating. We travel...

We wanted a place close to Universal Studios, our main reason for booking here. We booked our Universal Studios tickets and motel at the same time, chosen because of the convenience of the complimentary shuttle that runs between the motel and park. Pickup times need to be prearranged and our driver was early/on time for each use of the shuttle....

A nice, fun place in a nice, fun place! We only spent one night but it was clean, quiet, felt safe and comfortable, too. We brought our dogs on this trip and the safari inn accommodated them, too! The maid service was very thorough and worked hard cleaning inside and outside the rooms!

It's close to universal studios and downtown. A little dated and a bit on the pricey side. But it was clean and close to what we needed. There is a little Chinese restaurant across the street and it was pretty good.

“All rooms were good and elevator to the top floor so all rooms were accessible.”
Woodbung, 29 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Room 128 is dark and quite noisy - it's adjacent to the laundry and vending machine room, which gets a lot of traction and people slam the door to it all.the. time. So if you're after one of the efficiency style rooms, ask for one on the second floor. We had one night in #128 and then 3 nights in 228 - much better. ”
