A real old style motel with exterior doors and single story with parking spaces in close. Nice and clean rooms with wood floors, a tub with shower and a very comfortable bed. The Wi-Fi worked very well. A great alternative to the much more expensive, mostly foreigner owned places in the Kansas City metro area and in a much safer,... More

My granddaughter and I stayed here for one night on our way to Branson. I was glad I had two sleeping bags in my truck. The place was filthy and horrible. Didn't want to use the toilet, didn't want to touch anything and didn't want to walk barefoot on the carpet. In the morning, my granddaughter asked me if I... More

We currently live up north but work down south so we frequently stay over in Clinton. Having tried a couple of motels in the area, we found the Safari to be a surprisingly good place to stay. They are still remodeling the 'suite' side of the motel and so those rooms are not currently available. However the main part of... More

The rooms were decent and the price was good. It was easy to find - right off the highway. The front desk lady was nice. The room was clean. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, this is it. Overall good experience.

If you don't mind cockroaches, stench, a bathroom door that won't stay closed and keeping your shoes on to avoid the filthy carpet, then you'll be right at home at the Safari Inn. Seriously, do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere when visiting Clinton. The "Free High Speed Internet" has to be the lowest tier offered . . . it's... More

It is a nightmare motel. The filth was unbelievable. I found bugs crawling on the desk. Thank goodness I always carry a can of Raid when I travel. Half the amenities listed were not provided. I wouldn't even send my worst enemy to stay here. It is not even close to the pictures pn the website and I plan on... More
