I like to stay at a motel that will treat me like a valued customer even after I check out, since I don't leave for home until evening. The Safari staff offered me the use of my free parking space, the ocean-front balcony, and a bathroom in the lobby so that I could enjoy the day on the beach, even... More

The front desk person was very helpful. After we checked out, we forgot some items in the room, and they sent them to our home for no additional cost. If you are traveling with a pet, this is a good option. This is a no-frills hotel. The boardwalk location is very convenient. We did not have an ocean view even... More

Friendly owners, super clean rooms, beds are very comfortable, pet friendly. At my request, owner switched my room without any problem, even offered to help me carry luggage to new room. Can't say enough good things about Safari. This is my 4th time staying here and won't stay anywhere else. Highly recommend.

This place was awesome and the guy up front was great and has answers to all of our questions. Great rates and very clean. Right on the boardwalk and even has communal balconies so you can look out to the ocean if you want. 10/10 would stay again.

The room was very VERY small. No microwave but had a nice small refrigerator. I appreciate that animals are allowed, but having them in a different area from people without animals would have been nice. The room across from us had two barking dogs. Drove me crazy. Day two, our room had a strong smell of urine. It was awful.... More

My family and I loved the placed. It was close to everything we wanted. Free parking is a big plus, and the motel has a great staff. I hate walking to the beach and have to carry and the etc, but this place is right on the beach. No need to worry about where is the bathroom, just pop back... More

The Safari Motel is a little gem on the boardwalk at 13th St. We stayed in the main building on the top floor where there is an ocean front balcony which was fun for people watching in the evenings. (There is also a balcony on another floor.) Our room had everything we needed and was very clean. So nice to... More

At13th street ON the boardwalk. This motel is not fancy but it is clean, staff are very nice, and you can't beat it for convenience, good location and short walk to the amusements. We asked for a quiet room -- our request honored with top floor room farthest from the public balcony. The rates are very reasonable for those who... More

Another trip to OCMD and another stay at the Safari Motel on the Boardwalk. This time we were without dog so we stayed in the main building on the 3rd floor. The owners are the same as before and they were nice enough. The accommodations were same as before but frankly, you know it's not a three star hotel when... More
