I do not normally review anything but I relied on reviews to book my trip so I will write my review. Ease of Booking- I originally called to book the Gondolier but the price was a little more then what I wanted to spend so they suggested I book the American Safari which is owned by the same people. After...

I am not normally the type to post reviews. However, after the blatant slander that I have been reading about the American Safari, I feel that I have to. The first time that my husband and I stayed here was the Summer of 2011. My husband had fallen off of a roof and broken both (yes both) of his heels...

To start off the owners would never ask a guest who has reservations to leave the area when they arrive an hour early or even 5 hours early as we do every year. Second each unit is allowed only one vehicle to park and that is at all motels. Third at the time of your sons arrival, was the room...

I was really looking forward to the 2 bedroom suite @ Amercan Safari and also since I read good reviews about the owners I was sure I'd have a good time there. I was wrong :-( My son and his friend got there before us, about an hour or so, he gave our name and said we would arrive shortly,...

Once again my family had a great end of the season staying at the AMERICAN Safari Motel in wildwood crest nj. We went down for not only to enjoy the 50's weekend but to close out our summer at our favorite place to stay. The owners threw a great end of the season party with food,drinks and great music.

Wonderful place to stay!!! This was our 6th summer staying at the Safari and we couldn't be happier. It is clean, convenient and the staff is great. You are across the street from the beach and an ice cream store. You can rent bikes 2 blocks away and the boardwalk is 3 blocks away. There are 2 great restaurants (Italian...

we went here after reading an average reviews from trip advisor and after looking online, the price is reasonable (i wanted to go initially to days inn). the only difference they have is that they don't offer complimentary breakfast, only coffee and cookies. Nevertheless, there's places to eat around (McDonalds, diners, and some cafe shops along the boardwalk). And speaking...

I still can't believe how clean and spotless the room at American Safari Motel in Wildwood Crest, NJ, was. There was no mold or mildew in the bathroom and everything had been freshly painted for the season (I'm sure). We were there at the end of summer and everything still looked clean and fresh. I had friends in the Gondolier...
