Mesa, United States
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Very close to Universal Studios and the shuttle service sold us on the hotel. Unspoken amenity, a CVS is next door in case something was forgotten at home. Staff was amazing and super friendly. The shuttle was on time every time.

Just loved the Safari Inn in Burbank! Clean, comfy, quiet, everything you could need, and that incredible old school sign! Friendly staff, the drivers of the free shuttles were wonderful, especially Steve, who rescued us from the storm at Universal Studio! Free parking was a bonus, and once we got our bearings it was very well situated. I'd stay again...

Room had everything needed. Pool was great. Shuttle service to Universal Studios was amazing. Free parking included. Close to stores and grocery. Can't imagine a better value in the area. Would stay again!

The free, courteous shuttle to/from Burbank airport & Universal Studios can't be beat. The staff were all very kind, helpful and friendly. The rooms were incredibly clean. It's on a 4 lane street, and while they've upgraded the windows to help with sound reduction, you may want to bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

Thank you for your comments. We sincerely apologize for the issue you encountered upon check-out. Unfortunately when you make reservations through a third party website (Expedia, Hotel.com, etc.) the reservation is non-cancelable and non-refundable. We look forward to welcoming you back to Burbank in the future.

This modest, retro hotel had reasonable accommodations (we didn't want fancy...we were here for amusement parks!) and a truly superior staff who are friendly, efficient and dedicated to making sure our vacation went as smoothly and pleasantly as possible.

Great hotel with great service and staff! Well maintained rooms and minutes away from Universal Studios, Bob Hope Airport and great dining! Definitely recommend the Safari Inn to anyone wanting to stay outside of LA in beautiful Burbank.

We were in town for a memorial service at Forest Lawn and were hopefully optimistic that the hotel was "ok" based on reviews and we were very pleasantly surprised! Nice clean hotel, with friendly helpful staff! Good location, walked to Starbucks for coffee and the Tallyrand for breakfast... nostalgic visit for my better half who grew up in Burbank!

This is the second time we have stayed here. This is our motel of choice when we are going to visit Universal. The rooms are clean and spacious. We were able to check in early and the desk clerk was friendly and courteous. We like to stay here because it has the shuttle that takes you to Universal. This alone...

... And I don't smoke. Room was clean but you could smell the faint hit of smoke in the room. I guess the cheaper Trip Adviser rate has a catch - you get the smoking rooms??? I hate complaining so I just tried to deal with it and not think about it ....

Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the issue you encountered upon your stay with us. We have addressed your issue with the Maintenance Supervisor as the room should not smell like smoke. Again our apologies your stay was less than perfect.

“There is a refrigerator and a coffee maker, use them. Bring easy breakfast items and extra coffee or your favorite creamer like we did to start the day off right. If not, there is always room service and some good places near by. Very important for new comers staying in the LA area, the neighborhood was calm and we felt beyond safe, the area seemed very relaxed. ”

“229 is a roomy junior suite with a full kitchen. It shares a wall with only one other room (230) which helps with noise transfer, except that there's an adjoining door between the rooms which allows for a good deal of sound transfer if there are guests staying there. Also, it would be great if the hotel put up a curtain (in addition to the blind) at the kitchen window to prevent guests from being awoken with the sun. ”

“Room 203 is a corner King room and is considered "standard" even though it's almost suite sized, because of it's corner location. Huge bathroom and a couch/desk/coffee table in a separate sitting area. A pleasant surprise!”
