This is run by a family that really wants to make you happy. Only went one time for the Fabulous 50th Weekend. So cant say anything about the summer. The motel is one block away from the ocean and close to the broakwalk. In October not too much is open.

We had a kitchenette that was fully equipped with all necessary appliances... More

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

Great things about this hotel - location (3 blocks from south end of the boardwalk) close but not too rowdy or crowded. quiet but close enough for a short hike to the boardwalk trolley. - AC worked great, especially in the back room. AC units work well - large fridge! not full size but bigger than a dorm room fridge,... More
