Not as nice as I had hoped.

Very old fashioned "motel." Funky. Old bedding. Odd room. Won't likely be back.

A fine stay, good value

The room was very clean and well appointed. The staff was very friendly. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy parking. Went for the premium $5 more hi-speed internet, but regular wifi is free. Would definitely recommend.

emergency visit

Come to Burbank often. Usually stay at the Marriott but it was booked. Passed the Safari several times and thought we'd try it. Noisy and front door isn't sealed. Air conditioner rattled all night. No help from the front desk. Back to the Marriott for us.

Great Location... Out of the Hustle and Bustle...

Staff was great and welcoming. Was informed that King or Queen Bed reservations are NOT guaranteed online, must call for that. New's to me, I reserved a room with a Queen. A little pricey for what you get but, not a complete show stopper. Restaurant next door is a hidden treasure, great food, staff, and prices! Recommend.

Perfect for us!

I was more excited when i learned that True Romance and other movies had been filmed here. Johnny at the front desk was full of fun information and very helpful when our flight got cancelled and we had to stay an extra day. The pool looked great however the weather didn't cooperate for that, and the location was ideal since the heavy city traffic isn't really my favorite haha. I wish there had been pay per view as we spent a lot of time channel surfing. I would definitely stay here again!
