“Roaches would refuse to stay here”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The only thing good here is the cable tv. I was told there was up grades done. Only paint over wall paper. The floor leans bad, mold smell, cracks in ceiling, broken doors on the dresser,stained up bed and so called clean sheets same way. I don't know what hotel they got their pictures of the room from for the web site but they are not anywhere close to the look of the 3 rooms I looked at. If you could post pictures I would to warn ppl.

We appreciate you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at the Safari Inn, Murfreesboro. We are in the business of pleasing our guests and exceeding their expectations by providing our guests with a value oriented stay within their budget. We are sorry that the discounted room at the budget friendly price that was provided for you was not on par with your expectations. We have recently updated and performed a full renovation to many of our rooms but those rooms are priced higher than our older non renovated rooms which was provided to you for a discounted rate. The upgraded rooms pictured in our listing are available and are given an option for our guests upon check in who are wanting to pay higher for the upgrade. We understand every guest has a budget so we have tiered pricing for our guests based on their requirements. We also provide refunds to our guests so it was unfortunate that you could not take advantage of this policy when you rented the room. We hope you give us a try again and please come back to see our newly renovated rooms because we want to earn back your business.

Michael Patel, Safari Inn Management.

Stayed here only out of total desperation. Just long enough to catch a couple of zzzz's before leaving as fast as possible. Really trashy place. Dirty, run down flop motel. Looks like a no tell motel all around. If at all possible stay somewhere else!!

Room Tip: I doubt there is such a thing in this place!

Upon check in we were told "Your rent is due on Wednesday, we change the sheets on Mondays." -- We checked in on Wednesday.

The room looked like a murder scene... and we had checked out 30 minutes after checking in. It felt like the only way to feel clean after that would have been to bathe in bleach.

It was horrible. The room smelled moldy, the bed covers were damp, and the mattresses were too firm. Bathroom door would not close and there was no trash can in the bathroom. Service was horrible, several times I saw people going to the office to get toilet paper and towels because their room didn't have any. The wallpaper was peeling off the walls. I saw the inside of a neighboring room and it looked as bad as mine. I WILL NEVER stay at another Safari Inn.

This place was like a crack hotel or something. He charged us fifty dollars for dirty and disgusting room that sheets were not changed and pubic hairs from other people left there. The bathroom door would not shut with mold in it and the main door would not shut properly like someone had kicked in the front door and bathroom door. It was like a crime scene with DNA everywhere!!!! I had to scream to get my money back and drive two more hours before we found another hotel.. This place was disgusting.

My husband and I stayed at the Safari Inn on our anniversary since their price seemed like a bargain compared to some of the other places. The Safari Inn has a Jacuzzi Suite available and it only cost us about $69.00 with taxes included for the night. The rooms were clean and the Hot Tub was big enough for both of us. The king size bed was a plus and we were surprised at how peaceful the motel was. We were expecting some noise and partying but there was none.

Overall I would rate our stay excellent considering all we were looking for was a quiet and clean place with a jacuzzi hot tub all for under $100.

This is the best priced motel we have ever stayed at. It got late and we needed a place to rest for the night and found this place from their billboard on the interstate advertising Low Rates. We were surprised to find out that their rooms were only $30 plus tax since where we come from they are normally $50 or more. This motel was quiet, comfortable and very reasonable with their prices. I would recommend this motel to my friends or family if they have to ever travel through Murfreesboro.
