We really enjoyed our stay at Safari for a couple of reasons. A bit outdated but the rooms are incredibly clean..no mold no smells etc. The hotel is located right on the boardwalk at 13th St & it's just steps to the beach! Thank you Safari for making our stay comfortable & enjoyable! We will definitely refer others!

Love staying at this motel. The owners are WONDERFUL. Just got back from a great get a way with my sister and great niece who we took to the beach to spoil for a week. The owners and staff were great always making sure we had everything we needed for our stay and if there was anything we need. Even... More

This is an older hotel right on the boardwalk. The rooms are a decent size and there is basic cable. What makes this hotel are the owners. This is a family owned and operated hotel since the 1970's. The owners were always there when you needed anything, they were so kind and helpful and truly made it feel like you... More

This was our first stay at this motel, we were in Ocean City for the OC Air Show. The motel is right on the boardwalk, an ideal location. The rooms are a good size and well maintained. The cleanliness of the whole establishment is superb. The housekeepers are polite and courteous, as well as, the front desk personnel. The staff... More

Although it was extremely out dated and needed repairs our stay was the most cleanliness stay in a motel ever. Arthur (management) who was extremely nice and so on top of things made our stay so enjoyable. If we needed anything at all he made it possible and if it wasn't available he saw to it to make it available.... More

We had a great time at the Safari Motel. It was very and convenient to the boardwalk and the beach. We had a side ocean view and were steps from the beach! The motel was not fancy, but it advertises itself as a 2 star motel so that is what we were expecting. The bathroom fixtures and furniture were old,... More

I came here for senior week after graduation and would come back in the future. The location is comvenient (right on the boardwalk) and the room was clean and comfortable. The front desk was helpful and friendly.

This was our first time staying. It is right there on the boardwalk and it wasn't too loud. The rooms may be kind of small but very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There are many places to eat near the hotel. There is a lot to go around the area to keep you busy. We will stay... More

We had really high hopes for this place because of the great reviews and were therefore really looking forward to this trip. However, we found the managers very strict and unfriendly towards our group.

Safari Boardwalk Motel is not a 4 star establishment and they don't pretend to be. You get what you paid for, a descent room almost on the beach; what more can one realistically ask for. The buildings are old and the rooms are small and a little spartan but your stay is temporary and you're half a block or less... More
