My husband and I stayed here with our two dogs October 22-25. The hotel is actually two buildings, one directly on the boardwalk and another behind the main building. We were in the back building. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to the room. The room was clean and spacious. I liked that there were tile floors... More

Pros: Good location on the boardwalk - convenient to everything. Parking right next to our first floor room. Bed was comfortable. Room had been updated fairly recently. No carpeting, so easy cleanup for any pet issues (we didn't have any). Refrigerator and microwave. Front desk was friendly and showed us to the room. Cons: Small room with king bed -... More

We have been coming to The Safari Motel for over 15 years. The cleanliness is first rate(Thanks Yolanda and crew). The deck has a wonderful view of the ocean, beach and boardwalk--perfect for relaxing. In addition, they welcome pets,which for us is a big plus. All of your requests will be filled with courtesy and expediency. Rooms, while small, are... More

We usually go with fellow volunteers, dogs and humans, of therapy pets unlimited (TPU) to ocean city on the second week of October. In october the ocean is open for our pups to play. Staying at the safari is accessible to ocean. It is ocean front. Easy to walk our furry family members. The hotel is on 13th and boardwalk.... More

Worst hotel I've ever been to. The hotel was literally the size of a bathroom. It was so tiny. The hallways had such a bad odor. They charged me for one night almost $400. That's insane. No pool n no breakfast. Oh yeah and no microwaves in the rooms. Lousy 😞

I called 2 days before just to check & they said I cancelled the day after I made it which was NOT true, They could not accommodate us on the days we originally booked which was very... More

I have been going here for years and I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else The owner and the staff are the best in the OC. I recommend the Safari to anyone who visits oc. Art will make sure you have a great stay.

We have been here for 3 nights, one more left. It is clean, has most everything we need. Rooms are a bit small. View from shared balcony is awesome. Only real downside is no pool and the ocean has been rough the last few days

Stayed at the building on the boardwalk- the room was small and dated, but it was clean and surprisingly quiet! This is not a luxury hotel, but it's in a great location, it's clean, and the staff is great. We arrived in the morning, and just asked if we could park there early. Not only could we park, but we...
