Room carpet had greasy stains near the bed but we did not complain as we thought we would be spending most of our time out of the room sight-seeing. In hindsight, we should have changed rooms. Stayed for 3 nights and on the third night, was rudely awakened first by noisy neighbours at 2am who didn't stop their activities and...

Second stay here and not disappointed. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Close to everything. I live in Burbank and am having my home remodeled. This location is not only convenient but the personnel are very friendly and helpful. Laundry room is also a plus.

Prescott Valley, Arizona
Reviewed 5 November 2015

For a 3 star hotel this was clean and at a good location for restaurants and getting around Burbank. I had a group rate, but wouldn't pay a full price rate. It would have been a big improvement to have a lower and brighter light over the sink. Also, the bath tub drain almost backed up. When the drain was...

This was our second visit to Safari Inn. We love it there purely because it's so close to all the big attractions, and you get discounted rates for Universal AND you can walk to Starbucks in the morning for your coffee!! The staff are so lovely, the pool was fun for the kids and the room is basic but clean...

We were in need of a last minute hotel in Burbank last night, and Safari Inn was one of the choices. I thought "cute neon sign, like the retro vibe" and booked a "Run of the House" - what I THOUGHT was a king, non-smoking room. The lady at the counter - Gloria - informed me that when you book...

Thank you for feedback. We apologize for any confusion regarding the room type you received. When you reserve through a third party site, the room type is "Run of House" which means you are not guaranteed a specific room type but rather what type of room we have available that day is what you will receive. In regards to the...

Safari Inn is a clean, comfortable hotel at a great price. It's close to many of the area's attractions and within walking distance of a couple restaurants and fast food places. This was my 3rd time staying there and will definitely stay again when I'm in the area. I love it's retro style!

We were only in the room for about 5 hours, so it was a good resting spot. There were 4 of us in the room, and the rooms are very small, but clean. It was conveniently located to activities in the area.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at Safari Inn and we have had good experiences both times. The hotel is pretty quiet, and we always rest well here.
