Safari Motel has two big balconies ocean front. My kids loved it. They were going to the ocean and I was watching them from the balcony. The room was very clean and the price for the location was very good. I do a lot of checking around before I book a room. I would recomend this motel.

We arrived in Ocean City earlier than expected, and called the hotel to see if we could park our car and come back later for check in..Not only did they agree to that, but when we arrived, they had the room ready for us!! The motel has dated furnishings,, and is certainly in need of a renovation, but the coffee... More

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a comfortable room by the boardwalk without taking a huge hit to your wallet. The entrance is literally right next to the steps leading up to the boardwalk and the beach, and large common balconies overlook the water. On thirteenth street, the Safari Motel is ideally located in the... More

Hotel Seemed Clean And The Staff Were Nice. The Boardwalk View Was Very Nice As Well. Other Than That, We Had A Room That Had A Leaky Tub (not just a drip, drip drip) No Table, No Microwave (we were promised a room WITH one) And For It Being A Double Full Bed Room There Was Very Little Space.

Safari Motel was very clean. I own a cleaning business for 21 years and look at that when I stay at a motel or hotel. The staff was very friendly and would do anything for you. I would recommend this motel. Thank you Art and your staff for a great stay, will come again and stay longer. Michelle L. Mills... More
