My friends and I stayed here in October of 2014 for two nights. The location is great, it is right on the boardwalk. Safari has a balcony on each floor that is facing the boardwalk and beach. That was our highlight of the stay at Safari. There is a free parking in the parking alot behind the hotel. It is... More

I stayed here last Memorial Day Weekend. We stayed here because it is one of the only places that allows dogs in OC. The motel is on the dumpy side, very old with little updating. I believe they have the cheapest rates for any dog friendly hotel in OC though, although for how old and junky the place is i... More

This is a pet friendly hotel. We took our 2 dogs with us. We were right on the boardwalk. It was off season so our dogs were allowed on the boardwalk and beach. We were two blocks from a pet friendly restaraunt too. The rooms were clean and the manager took very good care of us. I would stay here... More

Two nights at the Safari Motel was all that I could take or would want. In fact one was enough, but it's such a pain to move & the LaQuinta wasn't open yet. Our room was on the first floor & their walls are so thin they allowed us to hear conversation & all night heavy snoring. Plumbing needed attention... More

Great location, great view. Pet friendly which is a big plus! Our room was clean and very nice. It was a perfect room for my fiancée and I for the weekend. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful! Will definitely return next year!

Motel Safari does not disappoint! Great service, and perfect boardwalk location. Accommodations are safe (even if traveling on your own) and they do updates each year. This year they had brand new patio furniture, flat screen tv's and new bedding. I would recommend for travelers who are looking for easy access to the boardwalk. This is NOT for people who... More

This is a great hotel especially if you have pets. The hotel is clean, right on the boardwalk and the staff is very friendly. All the rooms have a refrigerator and are quiet. What I like the best is the floors are ceramic tile and not carpeted which stays much cleaner.

We enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Safari very much. This hotel is in a great location - right on the beach and boardwalk. The room was spacious and clean - plus, we loved having out dog with us! The property is well maintained and the service was excellent. We plan to go back sometime (hopefully) soon!

I was a little nervous about staying at the Safari Motel in Ocean City MD because of some of the reviews I read. However, I'm glad we did and felt the need to share my experience for others that also might be hesitant. We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights and we had a great experience. Beware, if you are... More
