Thank you to Adamo Sr., Jeanette, and Adamo Jr. for accommodating my quick reservation for myself and family. I was very pleased to fine our room clean and the entire staff pleasant. I loved the ocean view from the 3rd floor - not too much pleased with the steps but maybe next time I won't have a problem going the...

This is an outstanding place to stay. I originally called the Gondolier and spoke with owner Jeanette, but they didn’t have enough available nights in a row to accommodate us there. Jeanette suggested a room in the Buttercup, another of their properties, but we really, really wanted an ocean view, so she offered us accommodations at the American Safari, also...

We stayed for 3 nights in June for my daughter's first show vacation. We got room 308, which was smaller than we wanted, fridge and microwave but not a real kitchenette, but we booked late and we're glad to get the room. Plus, we had a perfect ocean view, so no complaints. I was worried, because the Elks had a...

Adamo and his family know what they are doing. They own the Gondolier, Aztec, and American Safari - the latter two which were dives before they took over. The rooms are impeccably clean, like not even dust bunnies under the bed. Furniture and decorations are light and airy, and they update things on a regular basis. This year's updates to...

My family of 4, plus my daughters friend, and Sons girlfriend stayed at the American Safari for the long weekend. I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was! The motel is older, but the love, care & pride they take in their property is evident. We stayed in the G suite, the 2 bedroom suite. There was enough room...

My wife and I and several of our friends make a point to stay at the American Safari each time we visit Wildwood. Rooms are always clean and fresh and well maintained. Staff is very friendly. Love the free coffee and cookies from the lobby. The owners own 2 or 3 more properties (all adjacent to each other) so you...

We've been staying at the Safari for about 5 years now. We will definitely go back next year. The rooms are always so clean! I also enjoy the coffee and cookies in the lobby every morning! Close to the beach and boardwalk. Our room had a beautiful view of the beach, I would sit outside and drink my coffee each...
