Room #25 is just ok, decent under new managers and owner. New manager was rude to say the least, no warmth given here. Place went from nice little inexpensive motel to worse. I had stayed here several times in the past when old manager ran the place. This visit Room #3 King was requested and booked a month previous to... More

We were tired and desperately needed a place to stop - this hotel was the closest and possibly the worst! The room was in very bad shape, holes in the floor molding, my laptop screen is larger than the tv in the room, the electrical outlet for the microwave looked like it had been burning and the plug was hot....

We hadn't planned on staying at the Safari Motel but when the end of the day came for me the other motel down the street was full up and we'd been warned about one of the other chain hotels in town. I had seen some favorable reviews for this place before and wouldn't have hesitated to stay there by myself.... More

I stayed at the Safari on my wedding night in 1968. It has been going steadily down hill since. I just stayed there last night and it will be my last. I payed $50 for a $20 room. The wifi wouldn't connect to the internet, the pillows must be from 1968 as they were flatter than last weeks tortilla. I... More

We had two rooms for one night in Feb 2013. The good news was 88.00 total for both rooms, nice beds and no smell. The bad was the lighting, The shower head that sprayed over the shower curtain, the peeling wall paint, old bathroom. Its a good place for a cheap nights sleep.

Its was almost like like a pay by the month hotels you see in bigger citys. The managment was helpful and its in a nice... More

Any time that I stay in a hotel and actually opt out of taking a shower, that is a sign to me that I should probably not stay there again. The room we stayed in had old towels. They were clean, but why would housekeeping bring towels into a room that look like rags? Unfortunately, the first night of our... More

Room was clean and comfortable with fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Non-smoking room that is enforced so you can breath easy. Friendly management with information about the area. Room is basic, but all that you need for a comfortable night. We like staying at clean, locally run motels when they are available and rooms do not smell like smoke, and... More

My family stopped in Salt Lake City at a some hotel that cost lots and had a view of a wall. It was Saturday night and a party was getting going near the lobby and we just got out of there. I saw the sign on the highway for the Safari Motel and said, "That's where we've gotta go!" And... More
