Thank you very much for a wonderful weekend getaway!! The staff was incredibly accomodating as i only booked on Thursday for a room Friday night. As soon as I booked, it began to rain, and my daughter had a baseball game that night, the staff was willing to work with me if we had to cancel.... fortunately we were able...

Great location and only 2 blocks to the boardwalk. We had a nice view of the waves from the third floor corner room. I loved the fact that there was no carpeting but tile and a faux wood floor. Super clearn. Having a kitchenette was great. Coffee and cookies in the morning in the room aside of the office. Very...

The American Safari may be a typical New Jersey shore motel with one exception. The owner of this hotel and his family has always made our stays here very pleasant. We visited on a Fabulous Fifties weekend and enjoyed immaculately clean rooms, great coffee and pastry each morning and a generous buffet lunch. The family is caring and made the...

We loved the place! The price was reasonable. The rooms were clean. We got the bigger unit since we were staying with my children (19-22) and their friends. Worked out great. It is nice and close to everything. I was very impressed with the staff. They definately want their guests to be happy! We will be staying here again.

Very friendly staff. Spotless rooms and right across the street from beach and boardwalk. Stayed 2 summers in a row with my now 3 1/2 year old son. Nice for families. Great location. Can barbecue on the grills by the pool. No complaints!

Small rooms, small pool, small parking spots. No frills amenities such as small thin bath towels, twin beds in our room. The fridge was full size (bit ironic I thought). Everything was clean. Rooms looked maintained and recently painted. No mold, rust or other signs of age. The location was good. 2 blocks from boardwalk. Couple of nice restaurants behind...

This was our first stay at the American Safari. The staff was wonderful. The room was the cleanest of ALL places we've stayed in the past. Full size refrigerator. The rooms were surprisingly quiet. The maintenance man seemed to be on the grounds ALL THE TIME. That man is a work horse! And very friendly I might add. The desk...
