...to Beverly. Hills, that is.

I arrived at the airport at 6h55, for a 9h30 flight. I went to check in and for the first time in my life, I found that my flight was cancelled. I was shocked. I simply didn't know what to do. I'd only flown a few times in my life at that point, and they had all gone flawlessly. I didn't expect it to always …

Dim Sum and Waffles

... but I had time to relax. Rani, one of Tracy's friends, came over to hang out with us as well. Once the sun went down, we went to K-Town (Korean Town) to get some shaved ice and waffles, afterwards heading off to play some pool. We spent the rest of the evening (and early morning, at that) hanging out with some of Tomo's and Tracy's friends. It was a chill night. Now, for... three hours of sleep before tomorrow begins.

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

    DON'T

    from

    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 mother....no rooms at the inn" OH, of course they billed anyway.

    Don't come here!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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/malls...you'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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.
