The beach wall walkway is great for strolling and running as well as enjoying fantastic and peaceful views. The motel's property is well maintained including two pools plus a baby pool. The rooms are updated and very clean. The staff is... More

My husband and I stayed with our three kids for a long weekend. We arrived before check in time and though the room wasn't ready they invited us to enjoy the pool and leave our car in their lot. We weren't even at the pool 20 minutes when they notified us our room was ready. Our room was very clean... More

The pools were clean and the whole property was well maintained. I already booked my trip for next summer. My family stayed in Room 316 and it was spacious,... More

I am used to staying in bigger hotels and was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of the same amenities in this motel. We enjoyed it so much I will be calling in the next day... More

We love North Wildwood and we decided to give this place a try - what a wonderful time we had. The rooms are spacious, clean and had everything we could possibly need to feel like we were at home. The staff is friendly and had lots of recommendations on where to dine and visit. Did I mention peaceful and quiet... More

The hotel is only a short drive away from the board walk/ Morey's Pier. Close to great restaurants, stores and a close walk to... More

Wonderful time and a great place to stay. The location is perfect- just two blocks from the beach and at the peaceful end of Wildwood. Very clean rooms and beautiful pool. Friendly staff gave us great advice about where to eat and spent time chatting at the pool. We will definitely stay here next year!

Thank you so much for your review. The room you stayed in is actually our only type 1 that we have. The next room size bigger would be the type 2 which comes with a living, separate bedroom with 2 double beds, a full bath and kitchenette. We hope you will stay with us again! More
