First time at the American Safari and must say it was very nice. From check in to check out everything went just fine. Complementary coffee and biscotti in the morning,... More

AC units work well - large fridge! not full size but bigger than a dorm room fridge,... More

Great location and only 2 blocks to the boardwalk. We had a nice view of the waves from the third floor corner room. I loved the fact that there was no carpeting but tile and a faux wood floor. Super clearn. Having a kitchenette was great. Coffee and cookies in the morning in the room aside of the office. Very... More

thanks so much to Adam and his family for a great vacation experience. Rooms are super clean and accommodating. Rosie and Joe are extremely hospitable. We will definitely be back. Terrific location; you can walk to lots of things. There were 9 in our party and everyone was very happy. Thanks again, Stef and Steve.
