We have stayed at the Sandpiper for a number of years. Would not stay any place else. The Cranes always make your stay fantastic. The Motel is smaller but the CLEANEST place we have ever stayed. Love how close to the beach and boardwalk.

Clean, family oriented and very friendly - they always make me feel like family when I stay there! Other little tidbits that I find important when ranking a place to stay, good water pressure in the shower, nice bed (firm but has a pillowy top), nice pillows and I love the new shams! When I arrived the room was spotless,... More

Hi Anna! Thank you for your favorable review. Choosing new mattresses is always a bit stressful because not everyone likes the same type of support which is why I added the pillow top mattress cover. I'm glad you found them to be comfortable! As far as the bedspreads, thanks for noticing! It's good to know the motel upgrades are appreciated.... More

So this place might appear dated, but its actually not. Its done in beach 60s theme and all the appliances and beds are new! The best part is how clean the rooms are... the bedspreads are washed between guests and the rooms are given a good scrub down daily at the insistence of the owner. This is a family owned... More

Hello, Oh, you know me well, lol. Yes, I do insist on daily maid service! Aside from keeping the unit clean, I think it is nice to return to a clean room after a day on the beach. We hope our guests feel a bit pampered having their bathrooms cleaned and beds made daily. After all, they are on vacation!... More

My fiancé and I stay in Wildwood every year for a week during the 4th of July holiday. But, also because his birthday is July 5th. We've stayed in so many different motels which are very deceiving through their website pictures. And we've had some bad experiences as well. Sandpiper was not only exactly what we saw online but, beyond... More

Staff is greats. Owners make you feel like you are a part of the family. Rooms were clean and updated. My kids loved the pool and it was kept warm. View of the ocean from the deck was great, especially in the morning.

The Sandpiper is our annual choice for North Wildwood for many reasons. Their location is one block from the boardwalk and you can see the ocean from their roof top lounge area! The price is reasonable, and the rooms are kept extrememly clean. The staff and management are always friendly! Shower curtains changed each day, towel animals left on your... More

My family and I love the Sandpiper. The location is ideal- close to the beach and boardwalk. The rooms and pool are clean. The owners are incredibly nice and always helpful.

My family has been staying at the Sandpiper for over three years! We love it! The owners are so nice. The housekeepers really do a great job. The location is perfect! We love that it is a smaller motel. Pool is immaculate!

Hi, Thank you for your review. Your kind comments are greatly appreciated. My husband, Bill, takes great care to ensure the pool is sparkling clear. He insists on using two filters which are cleaned every two weeks. Since he never touches a computer, I'll be certain to relay your wonderful review. :) We hope to see you and your family... More

Used to stay at the Sandpiper with family to spend time at the beach, boardwalk and amusement parks. The last time I visited was in '94 and I have a lot of great memories there.
