Burbank weekend

I wish they cleaned up the bathroom a bit better, saw some mold in the corners and the wallpaper was starting to peel. Beds were comfy.

Nice place to stay

Great place to stay if you are going to the Ellen Show, as we were. The room was fine, parking was great and free (which is good for this area). Wireless service was slow most of the time. Not alot of activities in the immediate area except for Warner Brothers, which is where the Ellen show was. You can easily get to other attractions by car or bus from here.

We had fun.

We loved the pool and there are some chill bars in the area. Right near the airport and we got a free shuttle to the hotel! It was easy to get where we needed to be.

LA with students

After reserving (based on [...] feedback responses) we were pleased that all the positive comments were accurate. Rooms were adequate for our needs (an overnight stop-over) and we liked the ease of access to major freeways and attractions. Well worth the price.

Unbeatable location for the price

Safari Inn is a quiet and restful place with a nice spotless rooms. Swimming pool is kind of small but it's unbeatable location for the price paid though.

Good Hotel

We booked this hotel last minute because of going to Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights. We arrived hotel, which was pretty easy to find, and thought it was a little sketchy looking on the outside. The receptionist didnt seem to be that thrilled and didnt smile (both when we checked in and checked out). The rooms were super roomy, and very well done. Alot of channels to chose from while other hotels dont give you the choice. The biggest thing I found to be bad, was not enough parking. If the parking lot was full, you had to either park on the main street or at the hotel right by them. Overall, it was a good stay with the beds being comfy and easy to fall asleep too after a long night of walking.

Great location, good value

The Safari Inn location was perfect for our plans in L.A. Walking distance to a good-value cafe, pharmacy, and close proximity to the main highways. The front-desk staff was VERY good. From doing online flight check-in / boarding pass to reserving taxis, selling stamps and mailing postcards. One negative for me was the first night was noisy ... thin walls / not real sound proof and a very "active" couple either above or next door to me (ugh).
