Another summer has come and gone and another great year staying at the American Safari. It was nice to see all of the people we have met here throughout the past seasons also return and catch up on what has happened this past year. It was great to see the staff again too. Jerry,Rosie and all of the girls who... More

My family has stayed here a few times. The rooms and pool are clean, and the people are friendly. Wilwood Crest is quiet for families, but close to the boardwalk for rides and games. The beach is a block away (you can see the ocean from some rooms!), and there is a nice clean playground and basketball court a block... More

First time I stayed here. The room was very clean but a little to small for a family of four. The room smelled so I had to burn a candle. I stayed on the pool level so it was a little noisy especially at 8 am. Also the people above me were very loud and it sounded like they were... More

We just returned from our 10th annual family vacation at the American Safari in Wildwood Crest, NJ, and we were sorry to leave. This motel is located across the street from the beach and offers a fun 60's theme. It is within walking distance of the famous boardwalk, as well as many eateries. The family that owns this motel also... More

Once again, we had a perfectly pleasant stay at the American Safari Motel in Wildwood Crest, NJ. We tried other motels/hotels at the shore, but this is our favorite. This was our eighth year there. The owners and housekeeping staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are spotless, as is the pool. (We enjoy watching the "pool guy" diligently cleaning... More

American Safari is not your typical motel. The family that owns it is so friendly and does all they can for their guests. Italian cookies and coffee await you each morning by the front desk. Efficiencies allow for in room breakfasts or lunches and the beach is just footsteps away.
