My husband and I stayed with our 1 year old for a week, it was great to have a hotel room with two rooms and a bed instead of a pullout in the front room. Our daughter could nap and go to bed early in the back room in her pack n' play but we could move about in the...

We have been staying at the Safari for 15 years. Location is great a block from the ocean. Rooms are clean and bright and have everything you would expect for a motel room. Our unit comes with a small kitchen area that comes with pots pans dishes and utensils. Dish soap sponge and towels so you really don't need to...

We really can't say much we basically just slept there. Overall the room was clean, a/c worked well, not happy about not being able to connect my kindle via wifi. Swimming pool is really small, it seemed like everyone knew each other or were related, so we felt like the odd balls. Other than the above I must say it's...

My husband and I just returned from an extended weekend stay at this bright and clean resort motel. We had the bridal suite room, which is located on the third floor with a nice view of the beach and ocean (1 block away). The room was newly renovated and was such a refreshing change from the normally tacky Wildwood motel...
