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

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

I would like to tell you about the excellent time Al and our dogs, Starr and Eddie, had at the beach. I can not say enough about the Courteous, Clean, Comfortable and Best Location to stay on the boardwalk. The owners and staff are very people and pet friendly. Without this hotel we could not bring our dogs to the... More

We stayed at the Safari Motel over the Easter weekend. We chose the Safari motel after reading on the message boards that they were pet friendly and our usual spot (Barefoot Mailman) was under new management. When we reserved there was a disclaimer that pets must be under 25 lbs but when we called they said it was not an... More

The room though was VERY small and right by the front door so you could hear everything everyone was saying. The door to our room looked like a... More
