Vintage Charm with Modern Poor Service

Reviewed 26 november, 2021

We booked our stay at Safari Inn in mid-september for a reservation at the end of November to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We arrived on Monday November 22nd around 1:30pm. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient but didn’t bother to explain where any of the hotel amenities were. I asked about their free room upgrade as per their website if you booked through their website like we did. She said they were too busy for any upgrades and nothing else was available, the parking lot was empty, so I had a hard time believing this, but whatever. Our room was on the second floor above the office. It was a corner unit, Room 203 with a window that faces the main street. The room was a decent size, shaped a little weird because it wraps around a corner. It seems that the bathroom for our neighbor to the right of us, their bathroom was directly behind our head. We know this because they were up early showering a herd of elephants, or so it seems. The updates to the rooms are nice, but the air conditioner was making some weird noise. Oh and speaking of noise, the window that faces the street, yes you hear everything. I could have said something to the office but remember I was already told that they were busy, so the chances of having a better room was pretty slim and then we’d have to move all of our stuff. A few other issues I had: 1. Our room was apparently the place to keep the large, rolling cart of dirty linens in front of for several hours. Even after the housekeeping staff saw that we had returned she didn’t bother to move it. 2. There was only a fridge and no microwave except for a communal one in the vending room. With or without covid, I would have never used this especially if you saw where it was placed. Gross. The fridge was on the floor. It’s not like the room was so small that a piece of furniture that houses a fridge and a microwave would be out of the question. 3. The soda machines were sold out and/or broken. I went across the street to their other hotel to use their vending machine, it was also empty. The vending room, there is only one, was on the complete opposite side of the hotel from where our room was located. This also housed the ice machine, gross microwave and the washer and dryer. Not very sanitary. 4. The pool is not heated, there is no way. I tested the water and it was frigid. 5. When my husband went to get ice, he had to walk by two woman sitting on the ground in front of their room, smoking and ashing on the ground, only 6 feet away from the ashtray. This is a non-smoking hotel…in the rooms. I wish they would make a designated smoking area so it wasn’t allowed in front of the rooms. Shuttle Service: The service is incredibly convenient. The first day we arrived, I was exhausted from driving to the hotel through holiday traffic, so we thought we’d give the free shuttle a try. We booked the drop off and pick up with the front desk. The specific window for pick up was booked, but later free’d up and the staff called me to let me know, which I thought was really nice. The driver we had to take us to the Universal City Walk the first night was incredibly nice and informative. When we got back to the hotel we decided to book it for the next day to go to the Magnolia neighborhood stores. I asked the desk staff if it was walkable to go from Magnolia to Bob’s Big Boy. She chuckled and said, “well I walk a lot, so I would be fine. But that’s me.” And then indicated that other people might not be able to do the same walk. It was just weird comments to make. We discussed the specific store we wanted to go to, and she said she noted that in the system. The next day we received a call in the room 10 minutes before our departure to let us know our ride was there, I thought this was weird since we didn’t get this call the night before. We had a different driver, also friendly but unfortunately was told to bring us to a whole different location, neighborhood than what the front desk staff and I had discussed. He seemed a little annoyed that he had to drive to a different location even though it was the staff’s fault for entering the wrong information. The pickup driver called 10 minutes before the pickup and said he was there early. We were already on our short walk back to the pickup location and he was sitting on the planter at a different store than where we were dropped off. He seemed annoyed and barely responded to our hello. Like he was annoyed that we weren’t there early. We wouldn’t stay here again, but I wouldn’t necessarily sway someone from staying there either.

Good news, bad news

Reviewed 15 november, 2021

First, the good news: The room was clean, with updated decor. The internet was fast and reliable. The location was fantastic and the grounds were well maintained and had a vintage charm. Now, the bad news: This property is "pet friendly" meaning they except pets. But, be prepared to sign your life away with a hefty deposit (returned if they find the room clean enough at check out) and the ridiculous $25 per pet free. Also, you are not allowed to leave your pets in the room unattended. Which means if they see you by the pool, using the gym or just outside alone with no pets in tow, you would receive a warning phone call. Part of paying for a pet friendly hotel is being able to relax. I felt like a prisoner being watched over by the warden. Please, we paid the pet fee and left a deposit....can you please leave us pet owners alone to enjoy ourselves?

Surprise charges -

Reviewed 9 november, 2021

Be careful with these guys. I stayed at the hotel in early October with my wife and 2 children, and were charged $250 for a "smoking fee" two days after we left (we do not smoke). When i inquired about it and didn't hear back for almost a week, I reached out again. A representative called me back almost immediately and told me the housekeeping manager said she smelled smoke, and there was nothing she could do. When I asked to speak to that manager, they refused to connect me. I am currently disputing the charge with my CC company, but it's a huge headache and not worth the trouble when there are plenty of other hotels around that would gladly treat their customers with more respect.

What a huge decline and disappointment

Reviewed 16 october, 2021

I have stayed here and the Coast Annabel many times prior to 2020. We were excited to return. MANY THINGS HAVE CHANGED. They rooms were not clean. My room had toenail clippings at the foot of the bed. I had to argue to get the desk clerk to come get them. She said they don't clean the rooms again until check out. I asked for another room as I had a toddler with me and she said there were no more. Also should have been told the change in cleaning policy...If I wanted to make my own bed on vacation I would have brought a motorhome much cheaper! The air/heater smells terrible when you turn it on of musky moldy yuck. After the first night there was noone to get a plastic bag for the ice bucket from. When getting ice there were black flecks in it gross. Everyone was always sorry but noone could help a bit. Most clerks except the late clerk on Tuesday night were rude and had the additude "Just deal with it". I got the rooms from Hotels.com and they made me feel like I was a third class citizen. Every other word was "you got your room from a third party so we can't help". The advertised heated pool was NOT. I came for this as our main event on our first night. After a long drive from Phoenix, the kids were very excited to swim and unwind. IT WAS ICE COLD. I scanned the water. 41 degrees. The desk clerk lied and said they turned it off because it was warm the week before( it has been in the high 30's at night for a few weeks). Guess she should have asked if I own a pool business. She said they would turn it on for us so it would be warm the rest of the days. Well anyone knows you can't heat that much water in a day and it no longer was available for our trip. Again they told me that I got my room from a third party so nothing they could do. The room deposits they wanted, despite prepaying for the rooms, was paid in cash. There was nothing stated anywhere on hotels.com or their site to say if you paid in cash...you would not be allowed to check out until after 9:30 when someone came into work who could inspect the rooms! We had a full day planned and wanted an early start BUT NO.... we were held hostage till 9:50 when the lady showed up and then it took till 10:20 for the desk clerk to return our money. While waiting to check out and being held hostage though. I noticed men at the pool equipment. I went over and asked them if the pool was heated. The maintenance guy told me " Oh no. It has been broken for a few weeks. We are trying to get it fixed. Lets see if this guy comes back".... Yeah no heater for weeks. Sad Sad state of affairs from what was an awesome place to stay, comfortable, with the best tasting and priced room service around. The nostalgia was just awesome and it was an experience. Now it is JUST AND EXPERIENCE for sure...a HORRIBLE one.

Girls weekend!

Reviewed 26 september, 2021

We came here for a girls weekend and shopping trip and it does not disappoint! Great location for shopping, food, getting around to some hiking. The signage and history of the hotel is also rad. True Romance fans must stay here or at least drive by.
