Elk Grove, California
Reviewed 14 February 2017 via mobile

We were in town for a memorial service at Forest Lawn and were hopefully optimistic that the hotel was "ok" based on reviews and we were very pleasantly surprised! Nice clean hotel, with friendly helpful staff! Good location, walked to Starbucks for coffee and the Tallyrand for breakfast... nostalgic visit for my better half who grew up in Burbank!

This is the second time we have stayed here. This is our motel of choice when we are going to visit Universal. The rooms are clean and spacious. We were able to check in early and the desk clerk was friendly and courteous. We like to stay here because it has the shuttle that takes you to Universal. This alone...

... And I don't smoke. Room was clean but you could smell the faint hit of smoke in the room. I guess the cheaper Trip Adviser rate has a catch - you get the smoking rooms??? I hate complaining so I just tried to deal with it and not think about it ....

Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the issue you encountered upon your stay with us. We have addressed your issue with the Maintenance Supervisor as the room should not smell like smoke. Again our apologies your stay was less than perfect.

My initial impression was not positive as I booked through Reservations.com which charged an extra $15 that wasn't on the receipt and wasn't clarly stated in the reservation process. But the hotel itself was fine- a little bit retro with the iconic neon and animal-print fabrics. Service was super friendly and helpful. We didn't use the room service available from...

Quiet,clean and fits the bill. Fantastic neon sign and love the little bar next door. When you just need a place to sleep with great staff and nothing fancy, this is it. What a motel should be like. There should be more of this type around. Always nice not to have to pay $35 to park at a hotel.

We chose this hotel primarily because of the shuttle service, low price, good ratings, and its location. We were not disappointed! The rooms are clean and spacious. The shuttle service is very convenient and the drivers are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I felt like our morning ride to Universal Studios was a free tour of the Burbank area. Our driver...

Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating, even though we arrived three hours before official check-in. We reserved two rooms (for three adults and two children) and both were ready for us lickety-split. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We didn't use the pool but hung out by it and it was clean and sparkling. Other guests reported that...

the price was right, the staff friendly, the rooms clean, the pool lovely, the fridge froze our food, the booking agent didn't pass on our reservation, the walls were thin, the heater was too smelly to use, the shuttle was great.

I thought the rate for the Safari Inn was a little high especially for an old fashioned motel, but the location near the studios made it convenient. We only stayed for one night and it was clean and comfortable for our short visit. We got a 2 bed room on the 2nd floor. There was plenty of free parking in...

“The hotel is just off a main street not too far from a hospital, as such during certain parts of the day it can be a bit noisy. If you're a light sleeper, pack a pair of ear plugs and you should be fine.”

“There is a refrigerator and a coffee maker, use them. Bring easy breakfast items and extra coffee or your favorite creamer like we did to start the day off right. If not, there is always room service and some good places near by. Very important for new comers staying in the LA area, the neighborhood was calm and we felt beyond safe, the area seemed very relaxed. ”

“229 is a roomy junior suite with a full kitchen. It shares a wall with only one other room (230) which helps with noise transfer, except that there's an adjoining door between the rooms which allows for a good deal of sound transfer if there are guests staying there. Also, it would be great if the hotel put up a curtain (in addition to the blind) at the kitchen window to prevent guests from being awoken with the sun. ”
