I have stayed at the Matador, as well as the Harbor Light, which are both owned by the Del Monte family. We stayed at both motels for many ,many years. I can say without a doubt that they run the finest motels at the Jersey shore. The rooms are always spotlessly clean. They treat all guests like family, and take... More

We have stayed at the Matador for the last three summers in mid August. The rooms are clean and well-kept. The location is second to none: right on the beach, steps from the beginning of the boardwalk. The kids love the pool, the playground and being right by all the action on the Boardwalk. Terrific views, especially from the deck... More

We stayed her Columbus weekend for the soccer tournament. We have been coming to the tournament for years so I do have other Wildwood motel experiences to compare this place too. We had a room on the third floor ocean side. The room was small, but clean; no smell. The heat worked well. Easy to use thermostat. The location was... More

I recently stayed at the Matador for a girls weekend and we had a wonderful time! It wasn't my first stay there, but because of the location, atmosphere, friendly owners and clean facilities, it's been a destination of choice for all of us and our families! I've often stayed at their other location, The Harbor Light, and my time at... More

The staff and owners were very attentive. Clean, safe and very convenient to the beach and boardwalk. I haven't been to Wildwood in close to 20 years, but I would definetely go back to the Matador. A great place for a quick getaway.

They take the business seriously and make sure that all of your concerns are met with prompt, effective resolutions.

I have been to the Matador twice and loved it each time. The Resort has the best spot in town: right at the north end of the World Famous Boardwalk and right on the beach! The view is excellent, the rooms are very well maintained, the staff is friendly and courteous. Pricing is fair considering the value. Very nice pool... More

I could talk about the close access to the boardwalk or the short walk to the beach. I could talk about the comfort of the beds and the nice kitchenette which we were able to cook meals in and heat up leftovers from great restaurants. Or I could even talk about the nice hot shower for washing off when you... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. As with most places in the Wildwoods, we only have 1 parking spot per unit. We wish we had more to offer. I apologize if you had WiFi issues. We did change companies to handle our WiFi and recently have found success. We are happy to hear you found our property convenient and clean.... More
