My family stayed at the Harbor Light in August. It was just perfect. The family oriented atmosphere contributed to the value of our week stay. I would recommend the Harbor Light to anyone looking to stay in North Wildwood. See you next year!

We picked Harbor Light because of its proximity to the beach. That was really the only advantage of this hotel. The check-in was easy and the owners are nice enough but the hotel itself is just barely OK. The rooms (we had a 2 room efficiency) are small and musty, and everything is just a touch too old or not... More

We loved the Harbor Light Motor Inn. The staff was pleasant, the room was clean and the location was perfect for us. We were close to the ocean and boardwalk and the kids loved the pool. We are looking forward to going back next summer.

Travelled with husband and adult daughter. The location is great-3rd & Ocean-access to beach from Third St or walk one block on Ocean to the inlet. The boardwalk is a casual 15 min walk. We stayed 5 nights in one bedroom apt(Type 2). The apt was on the 2nd floor right off the sun deck, where you can see the... More

I love the Harbor Lights! I have been going to North Wildwood since I was a child and now I to bring my wife and daughter. I love the clean heated pools, the friendly atmosphere, and the OK price at the Harbor Lights. I have stayed at other establishments and recently just tried the Saratoga Inn (Wildwood Crest). I hated... More

We stayed at the Harbor Light Motor Inn for 5 nights in June 2008. We were totally unhappy with our experience. The property was outdated and dingy. There were screaming children in both pools all day every day, from morning to night. All rooms were close to the pool. We had our room moved and the noise was slightly better... More
