Exterior of the mid century hotel is really cool, interior slightly less so, but still a large and clean room. IMO some bits could just do with slightly updating.
Staff were helpful, especially when our toilet blocked!
Didn't try the pool, but still looked very nice.
Would definitely stay again. Burbank is a great location, not just for the studios.

I shopped around for a hotel for my family to stay at during our vacation to Universal Studios and found this historic place to be the best value that was also very close (10 minute drive). The fact that they offer a shuttle service as well is awesome! (side note: It is proper to tip a driver for a shuttle service. We took the shuttle multiple times and I witnessed no others tipping.) The staff and drivers were extremely friendly and accommodating. The only reason I marked sleep quality a 4 and not a 5 is because there were four of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers) so we booked the room with two double beds, which are a little small. This might not be an issue for others with a different compliment of people.

I would like to give this inn a 5 but the parking, beds and rooms overall are on the small side. The beds were still comfy to sleep on, the room was very clean and the pool was just great after a busy day.
Lots of amenities are close by so it is a good place to stay.

Safari Inn was the perfect location for our trip. Rooms look somewhat outdated, but are kept immaculately clean. All staff (front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, shuttle drivers, and restaurant) were fantastic. All areas of the hotel are well maintained, and very clean.

We had a busy 4 days planned for the area - Universal, Warner Bros, Burbank, theater. Safari Inn was the perfect choice. The price was right. We especially appreciated not having to pay a parking fee, as in other area hotels. The room was clean, adequate for sleeping, and then we were on our way. Short drives to each of our destinations. There are many choices of places to eat in all price ranges. If you can deal with a 'motor inn' then this will work for you. Parking is a little tight, but workable.

Room Tip: I liked the 2nd floor to avoid the parking lot noise.
