To start the room looked nothing like the pictures what so ever. My room was smaller than the average bed room. A king size bed with TV and fridge. But to walk around the bed you was either rubbing up against the bed or the walls. Yes very small room for almost $300. As I first started to settle in... More

The Safari Hotel has been around along time. My husband children and dogs stayed her mainly because it was pet friendly. The staff has been nice. The rooms are clean. No pool but there's a beach steps away! We will stay here again.

The reviews are accurate. It is clean but dated. I have the following to add. If your staying here because there's so few bring fido hotels in OC, consider that in season this place is serious downtown with little to no place with grass for your dog. It is in a busy area. The halls are small and the place... More

The guy on reception was very friendly, helped us to find parking etc.... More

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
