Great location for Universal, Hollywood and Burbank. Clean property, friendly staff. Shuttle service to Universal saved on parking. Beds are smallish doubles, so maybe try and get a larger room if sleeping with your child is like sleeping in a washing machine! Rooms are clean, staff are great and so is location. Shuttle to Universal Studios is great.

Very comfortable,clean and friendly. Easy parking, dated but well maintained facilities (loved the bottle opener on the wall), nice pool (even had an elevated sun deck). I found the place completely chill and unpretentious. Best hotel/motel experience I've had in a while.

The Safari Inn looks like a motel, but has more of a hotel feel to it. It's easily accessible from the 134 and I-5 freeways and has ample free parking. Staff are friendly and my room was spotless. My concern was that it would be noisy, but the only noise I could hear was from guests holding a loud conversation...

Pros: staff was friendly, free wifi, fridge in room, linens were clean, bathroom was clean. Universal shuttle. Cons: It's old and outdated not "newly updated from top to bottom' as stated on their website. It's loud. Not soundproof in the slightest. The carpets are stained. Walls are dirty and dented. If on lower floor then you can hear every single...

So close to universal and downtown area. Shuttle service makes the the hotel worth it as uber drivers can't go onto universal lots. Able to check in early and we were able to use the pool until the room was ready.

I was very "nervous" about booking here - thought it might be one of those "semi-seedy motels"... didn't know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. Rooms, while a little plain/dated, were clean and well maintained. Good water pressure, nice big flat screen, modern "card scanner" lock, etc. Bed was a little too firm for my taste but that's...

The shuttle ride to Universal Studio was smooth and not long. Glad I stayed here, did not have to deal with the hassle of finding a parking spot at Universal Studio. Shuttle driver was also engaging and gave us a little history about the town and what was around there.

Great hotel with very good restaurant and shuttle service. We were given a private car for our free shuttle to Warner Brothers studio. Driver was amazing and right on time both directions.

“Room 128 is dark and quite noisy - it's adjacent to the laundry and vending machine room, which gets a lot of traction and people slam the door to it all.the. time. So if you're after one of the efficiency style rooms, ask for one on the second floor. We had one night in #128 and then 3 nights in 228 - much better. ”

“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.”
