This is a great little motel in North Wildwood. It was very nice and clean. Close to the beach and great value for the money! Will stay there again, people were friendly and nice. Stayed with friends on our annual trip, first time staying there, we will certainly go back. Thank you for a nice experience at your motel!

This place is definitely one of the nicest places we've ever stayed and we will be sure to go back! Super-nice owners! Very clean! Beautiful HEATED pool! Great maid service. Owners assure you that they are there if anything is needed. We really felt at home!

Our room and the motel was immaculately clean. Everything we needed was in the kitchen including sponge and soap. It’s true the rooms are sound proof, there was a small party just below our room in the open space with the ping pong table, and we didn’t hear a single thing. There were kids playing in the pool, and we... More

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!!!!!
