This year will be our 8th at the American Sarfari! We have booked the same room the same week, adding an extra day each year. We LOVE Mr. Adam, his family and the staff! They are more like family to us!!

This is run by a family that really wants to make you happy. Only went one time for the Fabulous 50th Weekend. So cant say anything about the summer. The motel is one block away from the ocean and close to the broakwalk. In October not too much is open.

Great things about this hotel - location (3 blocks from south end of the boardwalk) close but not too rowdy or crowded. quiet but close enough for a short hike to the boardwalk trolley. - AC worked great, especially in the back room. AC units work well - large fridge! not full size but bigger than a dorm room fridge,...
