We love to stay at this motel. Everyone is so friendly and always greet you with a smile. When we arrived they asked how our travel was and when we departed they asked that we call and let them know we arrived home. So thoughtful of them to want to make sure we made it home safe. We really like... More

So....the motel has an interesting theme. One doesn't normally associate a beach motel with safari animals, but this motel has a stuffed lion in the lobby and a giant gorilla gazing out to sea on the top balcony. We were a bit hesitant at first to take the plunge and stay at this quirky, older motel but were so glad... More

Clean rooms and bathrooms, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, which seems to be the word in many of the reviews. Comfortable, on the Boardwalk, will definitely recommend and stay there again. Refrigerator in the room a plus.

I like to stay at a motel that will treat me like a valued customer even after I check out, since I don't leave for home until evening. The Safari staff offered me the use of my free parking space, the ocean-front balcony, and a bathroom in the lobby so that I could enjoy the day on the beach, even... More

The front desk person was very helpful. After we checked out, we forgot some items in the room, and they sent them to our home for no additional cost. If you are traveling with a pet, this is a good option. This is a no-frills hotel. The boardwalk location is very convenient. We did not have an ocean view even... More

Friendly owners, super clean rooms, beds are very comfortable, pet friendly. At my request, owner switched my room without any problem, even offered to help me carry luggage to new room. Can't say enough good things about Safari. This is my 4th time staying here and won't stay anywhere else. Highly recommend.

This place was awesome and the guy up front was great and has answers to all of our questions. Great rates and very clean. Right on the boardwalk and even has communal balconies so you can look out to the ocean if you want. 10/10 would stay again.
