Overall, this was a very nice hotel. The room was a bit small but we managed. There were two pools and very good access to the beach. While I did enjoy my stay, I wouldn't recommend more than 5 people in the room as space was very limited. Very helpful staff & very clean.

Took an overnight trip with some friends & their 2 children. Place was very clean. Rooms had everything you need (Kitchenette) Pots, Pans, silverware, fridge, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, can opener, dishes. Need I say more. Front desk staff was very friendly and patient. 2 swimming pools one for the careful swimmer up to 5ft and the other for the... More

There are definite pros & cons to this motor inn. And, as a side note, motor inn is a much better description than family resort. The cons include many areas in disrepair (lights,safe, bathroom sink faucet, etc.). The beds were extremely uncomfortable. We could only connect to the wifi if we were on the sun deck or in the office.... More

My family just had another wonderful stay at the Harbor Light. I reviewed the Matador Hotel, owned by the same family years ago, both are excellent options in the Wildwood area. The Harbor Light is clean, well run, and NOT at all outdated as a previous review has stated. Location could not be much better as it's right by the... More

Great place for a summer family vacation. Beautifully maintained motel. Staff is very friendly and does a great job of keeping rooms clean and well stocked. Two beautiful pools to swim in. Easy walk to the beach. We have been going there for four years and plan to go for any more summer vacations.

There are VERY minimal motels to stay at in North Wildwood that are updated so here are so of the pro's and con's as follows: Pro's: clean regardless of being very dated nice pool areas close to beach friendly staff free wi-fi Con's: dated (however, this seems to be acceptable in Wildwood) BAD mildew on bathroom floor rusty drop ceilings...
