“Great service and above par amenities”
Reviewed August 7, 2005

I had my doubts about staying in a place called the Safari Inn but I have to say, this is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in recent memory and I stayed at a four-star earlier this summer. This is not based on any marble floors or trendy bedding (neither of which can be found at the Safari Inn), this is based on the diligence of the staff, the generally excellent upkeep of the hotel and the conspicuous lack of a desire to gouge their customers for more money at every turn. We paid the rate quoted, plus tax, no more. And, we enjoyed free high speed internet, breakfast and a lovely relaxing stay at a remarkably quiet downtown hotel with a great (and extraordinarily clean!) pool! All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates good service and quality over glitz and price gouging.

I stayed here recently on a business trip and it's decent if uninspiring. The layout is decidedly "motor inn" with the rooms above the carports. Ironically, parking can be limited and a problem if you return to your room late (in fact the clerk suggested parking across the street ... although I might "get a ticket" ... but "they would take care of it" ... hmmm ... luckily i found a place in the lot). Otherwise, the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and the location is convenient for downtown.
