My family & friends asked me to write this review to let everyone know what a excellent experience we had during our stay @ the Safari (September 21 through September 25.) There was a total of 20 people with 7 rooms..... Everyone's was impressed on the cleanest of the rooms. The motel & grounds were immaculate and very well maintained....

Excellent location to spend time with kids, good price and service. One block away from the beach and walking distance from the boardwalk.broom are small but cozy with kitchen available. Also easy parking. I will definitely bring my family back here again.

The room was very clean! I came on Sunday, left on Tuesday, because I had to work, but, next year. I am staying longer. This was a last minute trip. Next year, iam getting a room, with a cooking area. The only complaint was, no trash can, only for recycling.

The American safari is a wonderful, affordable place to stay. Owners are great people. The pool is heated and a comfy place to relax. Location is perfect for beach and boardwalk! Clean rooms, too! They even let us check in early. We've been staying here since I was a kid, now I'm almost 30. This is a great spot:)

We've vacationed in Wildwood Crest 7 or 8 times and always wanted to stay at those small "old fashioned" motels before they all disappear. However, we were afraid thinking that maybe those "old" motels were in bad shape and occupied with "strange" wild and noisy guests. SURPRISE!!!!!, this was one of the best places we've ever stayed, it's a family...
