Wasn't sure what to expect for a motel but I loved the location, the 1960s motel atmosphere and clean and pleasant room and overall hotel was great. I loved that you could order breakfast in bed from a extensive menu at reasonable prices. That was unexpected and a nice touch. The area wasn't as busy as I thought it would...

At first I was concerned because we have a family rule about doors on the outside, but once I checked in, everything was excellent. Beds were very comfortable. Staff was awesome. I would definitely stay there again on any return trips. Room service breakfast was delivered at the exact time I requested and was delicious.

Clean and professional, and a great neon sign! Easy shuttle service to and from the Universal Studios theme park each day. Shuttle runs hourly, and parking at the hotel is free! Outdoor pool, but it is heated so my kids enjoyed a swim each night after a full theme park day...even in January!

Absolutely wonderful! Clean and very comfortable accommodations. Hotel staff are warm and gracious, from front desk, shuttle driver, maids and grounds crew! The Safari Inn is central to many attractions including Universal Studios, Hollywood, NBC studios and is within walking distance of great dining! We will stay here again whenever we come back to Burbank. Best of all, they are...

Reviewed 1 week ago

The main reason for choosing this motel was the free shuttle to Universal. The staff was very nice, helpful and friendly. The shuttle was there exactly on time at the hotel and the park. The room was weirdly decorated in their attempt to go with the 'safari' theme (which makes no sense in Burbank) but it was clean and comfortable....

Old retro style hotel. Very clean but very thin walls. Everything could be heard. The beds were hard, but the linens were clean. Large shower with ample shower pressure and the water stays warm. (I like my showers to be hot)

Great little motel. I can't say enough positive things about the staff - they were truly awesome. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and easy. Great recommendation for dinner at the nearby diner. Luis picked us up at the airport, remembered my son's name and everything he was interested in. Steve took us to Universal...

For the price, this motel is a great deal. Close to Universal Studios. Clean rooms. Helpful, friendly staff. Didn't swim, but saw several people in the heated pool despite the low temperatures. No issues at all. We'd stay here again.

Clean with a very friendly staff. We booked an efficiency suite which more than met our needs. Close to shopping and other places to eat. Coast hotels do a nice job. I would stay here again. They provide room service for breakfast and the restaurant is next door at Annabelle.
