“Very friendly and accommodating staff!! Great hotel!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

Loved our stay at the safari inn. The rooms have an adorable decor, they're very clean and the bathrooms are large. The staff was so sweet and accommodating. The neighboring Olive Bistro at their sister hotel was also awesome and a great feature. We had an awesome bartender and gourmet burgers were delicious. Definitely plan on coming back!!

Stayed here for a week with my family. I would absolutely recommend it. It is a motel so it's not luxurious, but each of the rooms is nicely done. This has to be the cleanest hotel or motel I have ever stayed, the bathrooms were spotless. It's a great bargain and in a great location. Saturday night we heard a little noise from other guests, but other than that it was quiet. The gentleman at the front desk was a pleasure and very helpful, and there's room service available from the next door restaurant.

stayed at this location for two nights in sept. for a concert at the hollywood bowl. the room wasn't anything fancy but it was clean and i was surprised to find it quiet, considering we had a room closest to the street. the staff was very friendly and helpful. pool was clean and refreshing. it is a fine location for checking out the studios, hollywood and the bowl. numerous food options available within a short distance. easy access to the airport in burbank. one drawback would be the lack of a hotel shuttle on the weekends. they provide transportation for an individual through super shuttle during those times, which could mean numerous stops before reaching the motel. i used AAA to get a good rate. overall, i would stay here again for another concert at the bowl.

Room Tip: try to get a room away from the road

This is a motel, so it has rooms with outside doors. Unfortunately, that means you will hear the traffic on Olive and people in the parking lot, but if it's not a busy time than it shouldn't be too bad. Food can be ordered (or picked up) from the bistro at their sister property next door, but as others have pointed out, there are other places to get food around if you're willing to look. There was a mini fridge in the room but no microwave. I think there was a microwave in the vending area, but I didn't use it. I also didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. It has a great location - I had an event to attend at the Disney Animation Studios and was able to walk there. There is also a free shuttle to the Burbank Airport. Just make sure you make arrangements at least a day in advance.

Overall, I would say this is a good place in a nice area, but I do wish it was a bit cheaper being a motel.

Room Tip: If you want to get food from the bistro, save yourself the room service charge and get it to go.

Typical 60's motel. Modest, but clean, a good bargain if you have to stay in the area for an extended amount of time. Had swimming pool on an elevated deck. Room service was available from hotel next door. There were many kinds of restaurants within a couple of miles, with free parking. In the valley off the 101, just 1 exit from Hollywood Bowl. Close to other main roads, too.

Room Tip: Get a room upstairs.

No complaints other than the price for what you get. Location makes it expensive. Stuck me and my girl in a 2 bed (full) room. We ate in one bed and slept in the other lol. Nice staff, fridge but no microwave, heated pool but didn't use it. Quiet and quick to get to Universal Studios and 45min from Disneyland. Recommend if the price isn't too high. We paid $189/night. More than that and I'd say pay a tad more and find somewhere nicer.

Arrived early staff accommodated our check in with no hassle. Very affordable compare to surrounding area rooms. Very close to freeway, jay leno, and the smokehouse restaurant. Rooms where not luxurious but where very clean.
