Average motel room. Clean. Some of the guests were noisy and all over the place. There was some confusion on the part of the office and had to switch rooms after 2 days, but I do believe it was an honest mistake. Rates are better than most in the area.

We stayed from Saturday till Monday and it was great! The rooms were clean, but slightly out dated. The bathrooms were clean and nice to use. Carpeting could be updated but over all nice large rooms. The people were very nice and friendly (even other customers staying there). The walk to the beach was great, not too much traffic and... More

First we stayed here for the July beach blast with the team. The rooms were dirty, the beds were hard like sleeping on card board, there was no place to sit with the team, the pool was locked at 8 along with the only 1 table for the entire hotel. The owner complained about us hanging our towels on the... More

Staying at the Cardinal is becoming a yearly tradition. Back for our second Beach Blast weekend was just as expected, clean and friendly. More than half of our 2 soccer teams, along with family and friends enjoyed our stay. Clean pool, bbq grill, tidy rooms amd great rates will keep us coming back, again and again!

I have stayed at The Cardinal since I was 18 years old and went to the Jersey Shore with my friends. I continued staying there after I was married with a child of my own. The Cardinal is a family owned and operated facility with a family friendly atmosphere and I always noticed how hard they worked at keeping their... More

My daughter and I stayed here last year for Wildwood's Beach Blast soccer tournament. It was a great deal for the entire weekend and fellow team mates and families stayed as well so we called early in abd reserved multiple rooms and received a slight discount. This motel is definitely the typical Wildwood hotel. Clean rooms, nice sized pool, and... More

I have stayed at the Cardinal the past three years for Wildwood's Beach Blast Soccer tournament and never had any issues. However, my experience this past Memorial day weekend was terrible and I will... More
