The motel is in a great location. Close to the beach and boardwalk, and in North Wildwood so the beach is much shorter !! Older decor but VERY CLEAN! Just returned from a 3 night stay and would absolutely stay again. The owners were very nice and friendly. It is clear that they care about the property.

Friendly owners are very helpful. The pool is a nice size and the owner will keep it open later then most pools in wildwood. It is a 1/2 block from the beach/boardwalk. its where the board starts so there's always a tram car. The beach has a walking mat and also they have port a potties at every street now.

The location of this hotel is what sold me, and of course the price. Great deal and the owners are super friendly. The only negative aspect is that the pool closes WAY too early. On that note, the pool is very clean and warm. Beach and boardwalk are a few steps away. I would definitely stay here again.

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 The decor was HORRIBLE and outdated.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
