For the price you will not find a better place with staff being more helpful. The location is one block from the boardwalk which makes it nice... Has a pool that is spotless... Plenty of lounge chairs for visiting.

Every year we look forward to going to Wildwood,NJ and the Golden Rail the only place we will stay. The owners are nice and the maid service is efficient and friendly. We also like the location, It's only 1 block from the boardwalk and the beach. Hope to see you there next year !!!!

We were trying to figure out how long our family in general has been staying at Golden Rail... Since 2003 at least, maybe earlier. We mention it to everyone! Very family friendly, we see many of the same guests year after year!

WE stay here annually for a family reunion weekend every June. The staff keeps the place very clean. Furniture is dated, but clean. Pool area is immaculate and the water is nice and warm. close to the boardwalk and rides but not the noise. one block from the beach is great. Samuel's Pancake House is one block away!!!!!

The motel was definitely a "motel." The decor was HORRIBLE and outdated. The blankets and sheets on the beds looked like they were from the 70's and it was obvious the blankets/bedspread do not get washed very often. The couch was made from super uncomfortable material and again, looked like it was from the 70's. The toilet paper they leave... More

This is a great place to take the family. The pool is very nice and it is very reasonably priced. It is just a short walk to the beach. Roco and Sue are very nice people that make you feel at home. Every year they update something. This year it was new beds and they are very nice. Next year... More

They have a nice heated pool with a grill and a big game room downstairs. I stayed on the third floor and could see the beach... More
