We stayed at the Matador this past weekend just overnight on saturday for Beach Blast. The staff is incredible and really friendly. They let us park there prior to our check in because we arrived so early for the soccer games and even let us swim after the game while our room was being prepared. once we got in our... More

The Matador is a great place to stay! We looked at other nice places for less money, but in the end you get what you pay for, and we have no regrets in paying a bit more for this place. The location is prime - steps to the beach and right at the beginning of the boardwalk. We stayed in... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Matador, we did not spend a lot of time there as we are not one to sit around. The only suggestion I would have to improve things would be the bedding, I found the sheets were not adequate, the top sheet was too small and very thin. Other than that we were happy enough.

This was our second time staying here. Both times was a good experience. This motel is one of the cleanest, quietest and best run motels I have stayed at in Wildwood. If you have a problem with anything the staff takes care of it. The staff also knows the area which is always a big help. We will probably stay... More

The location of this motel is perfect. Close to the beach, right at the edge of the boardwalk, near a convenience store and bike rentals. Great, clean pool and sun deck(good location for fireworks). Good parking. Very family friendly. We stayed in a type 6 room,oceanfront, on the 4th floor. It was perfect for us. The only negative aspect is... More

I've been going to Wildwood for family vacations for about 35 yrs., and with the exception of the Harbor Light at 3rd & Ocean Ave. (a close second for me), no other motel compares to the Matador. What makes the Matador so special?....Its CLEANLINESS, LOCATION, and a GREAT STAFF! At the foot of the boardwalk (quiet end, with a great... More

This is our 3rd time staying here at the Matador. It's always a good time. The location can't be beat, beachfront right at the beginning of the boardwalk in North Wildwood, and a short drive to Cape May. Shortest walk to the Ocean from any point in Wildwood. If you have been here before, you'll know what i mean.The Ocean... More

We stay at this motel every summer in late June to enjoy the beach with our grandchildren. The management is always very friendly and takes care of any problems immediately. The rooms are always clean and maid service is excellent. A variety of room options are available, most with small kitchens including all needed dishes, silverware, pots and pans etc.... More

We have stayed at the Matador since 2009 only skipping last year due to the imminent birth of a grandchild. The location is great, the staff is WONDERFUL and the rooms are clean and spacious. We look forward to our stay each year and plan to continue coming each summer!
