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....

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...

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...

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...

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...

My boyfriend and I stayed here a couple months ago and we had a terrible experience. The room was ridiculously small, there was trash from the previous occupants, the bathroom lighting/fan didn't work, nor did the fridge in the room work. The hotel, as well as the rooms, had a musky odor and it was incredibly humid. My boyfriend wrote...

This hotel is extremely outdated, but has prime real estate for visiting Ocean City. Don't be fooled by ocean front rooms tho, you can't see the ocean from them. There is a public balcony on each floor that prevent there from being windows on the front of the building. Not worth fighting for it, since everyone shares the view that...

Some of our rooms are ocean view from the window of the room. Our goal is to have satisfied guests and we are always striving to improve our attentiveness, accommodations, and surroundings. We...

Rooms were small, but clean. We traveled with 2 other families - twice management "spoke" to us regarding the kids being too loud. Dogs were barking, people were being loud, we never complained. On that note, I am not sure I would recommend for families with young kids. Location wasn't too bad - a little bit of a hike to...
