Nearly all of the motels I've stayed at along the east coast have one thing in common-- the musty smell. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Safari Motel. Very clean,no funky odor. Yes, this is an older place, so no brightly lit bathroom with marble vanity. The rooms are also a little on the small side. I think the... More

I came here with my family and was pleasantly surprised. Upon arrival we were greeted with warm welcomes, and instantly checked into our room. The room itself was very nice, clean, and spacious. The owners were friendly and inviting. I would recommend this motel to anyone that would like to enjoy their vacation free from the typical hassles of disappointment.

The Safari Motel is great for us. It is pet friendly and super clean. Although some vacationers may want for amenities such as a pool, we keep returning because of the location--right on the boards and beach and as aforementioned, the cleanliness of the rooms. We spend a great deal of our time on the upper deck which affords a... More

The Safari is a great value and very clean. However, this hotel isn't for everyone. The Safari is a desired taste that has its share of pros and cons. Pros- one of the cleanest hotel that I have ever seen or stayed in, this includes the bath rooms. Secondly, its location is located directly on the board walk. Third, the... More

While not a premier 5 star hotel,My wife and I were so happy that we decided to book this room. The Staff was excellent,the rooms were clean,including the bathrooms,and it's pet friendly as well. The whole family really enjoyed our stay. It was affordable and right on the boardwalk. I would absolutely stay there again and wouldn't have any remorse... More

Located directly on the beach. Advertised as ocean view, but the view is out a side window, with a community balcony that is out-dated and safety questionable. Rooms are clean but very small. Highly over priced!!! Staff very friendly and helpful!!!

Ask for a room on the north side of the motel. Ours was bright, with a good view of the ocean. There's alot of tacky places in Ocean City. This one is kitsch, which I'll take over tacky any day of the week. There's a big plastic Gorilla on the shared deck, there are stuffed animals in the lobby. It's... More

The housekeepers here are awesome and so nice. The motel is right on the boardwalk and there are balconies on the 3rd and 4th fl. That over-look the beach/boardwalk. Parking is safe. Pets welcome and the pet rooms have tile floor for easy clean-up. Don't expect fancy and the beds are very uncomfortable.
