  • Older travelers

    Close to the beach and board walk

    Room to small no pool or hot tub and crappy tv

  • Older travelers

    Very friendly and attentive staff..Great location!

    Would like a coffee maker,microwave,and an ironing board and iron in room..

  • Family with children

    only staff and location

    we dont like the rooms. looks like cave.need update. not space everyone of us hit each other everytime we try to move. wayyyy to small. old bathroom. old tv ,not microway . olso pets allow, not fear for people who donsnt have animal. keeping at the zoo. upssss i forget (safari) means animals.. ..

  • Family with children

    It was right on the boardwalk. The staff and cleaning staff were very nice and friendly.

  • Group of friends

    The owners/workers were very friendly and accomodating. Coffee was good, but would have liked a coffee pot in the room. It was nice to have a refridgerator and microwave in the room.

    The price of the room was quite high for what was there. There was no iron in the room. You had to ask for room service. The air conditioner didn't work very good.

  • Family with children

    The location was terrific and it was the only place we could actually get a room on short notice.

    The shower did not work. It fluctuated between scaldingly hot and icy cold.

  • Single

    The staff were pleasant and everything was clean. The internet worked well. I had a big window that actually opened so I could get some of the breeze in my room. The fridge worked.

    Everything was very cramped. Lobby, hallways, and elevator were very small, just big enough to fit the luggage cart. The room was also cramped. I would have liked a table. The two double beds took up the whole room, so the fridge was stuck in the far back corner, almost behind the window curtain. The TV was small and grainy. The biggest problem, though, was not having a table for preparing food and eating. Instead I stooped over my cooler. There were visible repairs in the bathroom where spackle and glue were not covered up with matching paint. The shower seemed to have a mind of its own, going from boiling hot lava to glacial melt water and back again, seemingly without reason or warning. The windows were a bit leaky, if it rains hard. Overall, a bit rundown and shabby. With its boardwalk location right on the beach, it's surprising they haven't given the motel a facelift any time recently.

  • Family with children

    the view from the balcony.

    I think the safari needs to update there bathrooms the toilets don't flush like they're suppose to carpets are very old and dirty looking.

  • Family with children

    It is right on the beach.

    Rooms are very tiny and antiquated. Beds are uncomfortable.

  • Group of friends

    The staff and very pleasant and friendly.

    The bathroom could use a face lift.

  • Family with children

    Right on the boardwalk

    It was very expensive for a small dirty room

  • Older travelers

    Great location. Clean room. Bath was average in size, but more than adequate. Would stay there again.

  • Older travelers

    great to be on the boardwalk and watch people and not have to pay $300/night.

  • Older travelers

    The room was clean and the maids were nice

    Over priced for a room with a broken toilet and parts of the fridge missing. The lobby staff were rude and noisy and at times creepy. The shared balcony was horrible. Someone was in our room even tho I ad the do not disturb sign out with all the millions of cameras they have you would think they would know who it was. I wouldn't recommend this dump to anyone. Never again!

  • Family with children

    Location was good. Would stay there again.

    Small room and water tempature would change when in the shower.
