Santa Barbara to Burbank

A travel blog entry by andreas.bohman


... from Santa Barbara we get back to Highway 1 after Ventura and through Oxnard. Oxnard is not only home to manufacturing and defence industries, but also absolutely massive farmlands and there are several stands along the way where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables so cheap and of such great quality it's almost not fun anymore. We load up on fresh strawberries, plums and peaches for the rest of the day. ...

Hollywood Hills

A travel blog entry by juliea2013


... the hills. As usual I was cursed for making the team carry all their gear up a hill surrounded by locals in tee shirts or topless (showing off sweaty six packs) feeling very out of place, not to mention hot and out of breath. But the view and cool breeze at the top was appreciated and the stroll back down was lovely. It was a very LA thing to do. We lunched on sandwiches at a diner (Johnny Rockets) and hopped a taxi back to ...

Joni, Car Washes and Burbank Pad Thai

... alive There was nobody calling me up for favors And no one's future to decide (Free Man in Paris, Court and Spark, 1974) Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam Maybe I'll go to Rome And rent me a grand piano And put some flowers 'round my room (Carey, Blue 1971) I washed the X yesterday and it never fails, it started raining last night. Not much, but in Southern California, the spray from a wet dog shaking off might constitute a rain or at least honorable mention ...

The Road to Hollywood

A travel blog entry by smithsbjb


... with them, of course at a cost. We decided to avoid this today and avoiding eye contact was the best way to do it. We found the Woodfire BBQ for a bite to eat and viewed some of the 'stars' along the way. My favorite of course was Tom Cruise!! The Chinese Theatre where movies are premiered gave us time to find the stars hand and kept us busy for ages.

Tomorrow we head to Universal Studios...very ...

... Griffith park with my host and did a little hike (I really have no idea what counts as a walk and what counts as a hike but I wore trainers and there was a slight incline so hike it is) and saw the hollywood sign. We then went to the observatory which was very nice and saw some weird solar noon thing. After that we went on the long drive through Hollywood and Beverly hills (it was about 10 miles but took over an hour because ...

    The room was clean and well appointed. And at no point did James Gandolfini come over to beat me up.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Safari Inn Burbank



    My mother and I showed up at 11:30 pm for our confirmed two room reservation. Safari Inn showed the reservation, but only had one room. Asked for two rooms anywhere else...they refused. 11:30. pouring rain... my 83 yr. old rooms at the inn" OH, of course they billed anyway.

    Don't come here!


    The manager was never there so you couldn't complain. The toilet wouldn't work properly. The hotel is located on a busy road, you can't get any sleep because it is too noisy. The breakfast is in the lobby. The cleaners come far too early, you can't have a lie in. No lift. The bedrooms are small and dull.

    The food is horrible. They don't seem to be bothered when you tell them anything. A woman on the front desk called my Mum a liar when she was in the wrong. There's nothing to do here for kids as well.

    Just what we needed


    My friends and I took a trip to LA recently and stayed here. It was just what I expected for the price. The staff was friendly, the room was typical motel type room. Everything worked which was good. There was a very small gym. We worked out in it despite the size. The room would get hot very easily we had 4 people in our though. I liked the roof top deck. Overall we enjoyed are stay.

    Spotless Budget Motel


    I wouldn't call this place "retro" as it was completely renovated over the past few years. The motel sits on the "main drag" that connects the movie-studio area of Burbank to the downtown area. It is walking distance to a market, a chinese take-out, a decent coffee shop, a McDonald's and a donut shop. For most everything else, such as fine dining or movie theatres/'ll have to drive although the city buses pass right by the motel so that's an option. There is also a catholic church right across the street, and a nicer hotel attached to the Safari...The Annabelle (which has bigger rooms and a very good restaurant).

    Judge For Yourself


    I wanted so much to give the Safari Inn an excellent rating but you be the judge based upon our experience.

    Try their other property instead


    This place needs to tone down their hype. It is just a basic, noisy, motel type place. Staff was very nice. Room was clean. Right next door is its sister hotel the Annabelle -- we'll try that the next time.

    Noisy but nice enough


    This place is right on the main drag in Burbank, so it's kinda noisy. Right next door is its sister hotel the Annabelle where you could request a quiet room in the back. A supermarket, donut shop, McDonalds and 2 or 3 family restaurants are within walking distance as is the Catholic church, 2 drugstores and a 7 Eleven.

    If the price is right I wouldn't hesitate, but the Burbank Holiday Inn or the Courtyard Marriott are probably better choices.

    Don't believe th hype


    The room had no natural light (the window was the size of match book) and even though it was a non-smoking room it reeked of cigarettes. When I called the front desk to change rooms they seemed annoyed and weren't very helpful. I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. There sister hotel the Annabelle across the street is nicer. Spend the extra $30 bucks and stay there if you have to stay in Burbank.

    Close to everything


    The hotel was very clean. I thought the maid service came way too early, especially if you had been out the night before or just want to sleep in because you are on vacation. The walls were pretty thin here also, we were able to hear the other people on both side of us pretty clearly. This hotel is very close to everything in Burbank.

    Where Lucy and Ricky would have stayed ni the 50's


    Stop by an stay in yesteryear for a nite or two. This one's so close to the movie studios, that a bit of them has rubbed off on this retro motel.
