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...

We were drawn to this place for the decent price and great location. We figured for two nights we could put up with anything as long as we had a place to lay our heads at night. I was very pleasantly surprised. When we first checked in, the owner (or manager) said that he didn't have the particular room I... More

I will admit this wasn't our first choice right off the boardwalk, originally we wanted to stay at a more popular chain but after looking at the reviews of bad service we were in a predicament. We finally picked the safari motel. They were so friendly from beginning to end. They were efficient, clean and professional. It just seems since... More

We had a room with an ocean view, which if you see the photos of the hotel you will notice there are two community balconies so the only rooms facing the ocean are on the sides of the hotel and most of the view is blocked by the buildings right next door. Waste of money for sure. If you can,... More

Motel was built when people were respectful of others and kept the noise down. Old motel but very clean. Staff of 2 people were very... More

My wife and I have traveled to Ocean City on several occasions and try to stay in the middle of the boardwalk, which keeps us just out of the heaviest crowds. We found the Safari very clean and well maintained. The onsite management was always present and quite courteous. Our stay was quiet and we sat on the upper deck... More

Small rooms but very dog friendly. Owner Arthur a great source for local recommendations. Good coffee in the morning. Nice central location - far enough from the main attractions to be quiet but close enough to walk to everything we wanted to see and do
