My daughter and I stayed here for the first time earlier this month. I normally stay in Wildwood Crest, but after seeing this hotel's location, decided to give it a try. The people in the office were very friendly. The room and all the facilities were very clean. We had a minor issue with a non-working electrical outlet in the... More

We stayed here because it was cheap. It was a beautiful beach weather October weekend. This motel does have a nice heated pool. That's about it. The rooms were clean enough but the bed was rock hard. Bring shampoo and soap because they don't supply it. It was fine for one night but that's about it. Had to remind myself... More

Upon a reference from our friend we decided four years ago to give it a try. With that said we refuse to stay anywhere else. The beach is only steps away, a park for the kids, the boardwalk is also steps away. The upkeep of the property is awesome and very clean. They have a friendly daily cleaning crew to... More

Refrig, stove, sink, coffeepot micro. Even dishes, pots and silverware. The beach was right in front of us. Not a far walk. Best of all... More

My family & I always vacation in Wildwood for our summer trips to the beach. We decided to stay at the Matador this year and our experience during our visit was wonderful. The staff, location, and hospitality was first class. Our rooms were beautiful and clean, beds very comfortable. Our children loved playing in the pool and having the hotel... More

My family and I stayed at the Matador this past June for five (5) days. We had a wonderful experience. The air conditioning was excellent. The rooms and linens were clean. The staff was very courteous, kind and extremely helpful. The people at the front desk were incredibly friendly. The hotel staff treated us like family! We will be returning... More

We had stayed at the Matador for many years, pleasant staff, great housekeeping, grounds and walk way very clean, great location to boardwalk and beach! When we arrived we were told about the new smoking policy which made complete sense, no smoking near the rooms only on the top deck (and maybe the lower deck.) The problem was that we... More

My family and I use to stay here 15 years ago. We stopped because it was becoming run down and not modern at all. When I booked it for our vacation this year I did so hesitantly. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived, the room was clean, spacious and somewhat modern. The AC worked! We stayed on the fourth... More

The Matador staff bend over backwards for you. The place is clean and quiet. The have quiet hours from 11:00 p.m. until 07:00 a.m. and they mean it. It's at the end of the boardwalk close to everything. This was our first time staying here and we will be back.

My family ended up staying here for the first time in June when the motel we usually stay at had no availability. We were so impressed that we came back to the Matador for a long Fourth of July weekend. Super clean rooms, quiet pool, friendly staff, excellent maid service, and terrific location. It is literally steps to the beach... More
