I can't say enough about our stay at the Sahara. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating, the place is clean and comfortable, and the location couldn't be better. We spent the week with about 20 friends and family, and everyone had a great time. We've already booked for next year and can't wait to go back.

We love this place. We find ourselves coming back every year. The rooms are clean and we'll kept. The owners are very accommodating. The location is awesome ...right on the boardwalk with a short walk to the beach.

I have been going to Wildwood for many, many years, most of the time staying at the Sahara Motel until it went under. I was so happy to see that it was purchased and beautifully renovated. It is better than ever. Rooms are beautiful and upgraded and it is the best location possible. Management is so friendly. Had the pleasure... More

I have been vacationing in North Wildwood for over 50 years, most of them at the Sahara Motel. So I was very unhappy when I heard that it went into receivership a few years ago. I tried other motels but was never satisfied. I was ecstatic when I heard that it had been purchased and reopened. I returned this year... More

Great little beachfront Motel right on the Boardwalk. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a poolside efficiency room. Full size fridge, microwave and a little stove everything you'd need in your kitchen is here for you. It was the perfect size for us(2 people). The pool is nice. I liked the upper deck facing the beach.... More

The Sahara Motel has been our Wildwood stop for more than 20 years. The motel fell on rough times in the last few year and is now under new ownership. There has been a major renovation going on here and the change is phenomenal. The current owners are upgrading the establishment and the restoring The Sahara to the jewel of... More

My whole family has stayed at this motel for many years. We all love it. It is literally steps from the boardwalk. Everyone is so nice and helpful, the pool is great and the rooms are very nice and clean. You can sit outside your room and you will be looking right at the ocean. That is my favorite thing....

This was my first time staying at the Sahara and I already know that it was not my last. The staff (inside and out) were very polite and made sure we felt at home. The outside and inside of our room were so clean, I was surprised the entire room did not sparkle. Great location, right on the beach and... More
