The owner and her family watch you like a hawk. If you leave they know if you come back they know. It's kinda creepy. Also beds are so uncomfortable, feels like you are sleeping on springs. The rooms are also very out dated. It also takes a half hour to check in because she does the math by hand.

Oh my. Where do I begin? Needed a place for a one-night Friday stay in early August. After checking reviews I called and was able to book this motel. I wish I hadn't! While she seemed like a very nice woman, Lorraine (the owner) operates her motel the way it was done back in the 70s. No computers, no credit... More

Little Motel.... When Motel is in the equation, don't have high expectations. You won't be disappointed. Everything was clean & well kept. Owners were very nice & accommodating. Two or so blocks from the beach. Nice Stay, would use the room again.

If your looking for family friendly, clean rooms, and courteous workers, look no further. The William is a family run establishment, has been for 45 years, that welcomes you into their "family". We were greeted with smiles and no request went unanswered, no matter how small. Lorraine, the owner operator, is very reasonable and assures your stay there is enjoyable.

We started staying at this motel on 2003 and try to get back every year if we can. Lorriane is the sweetest and she always remembers my name when I call to book. I'm in the hospitality industy and I know how important customer service is. The rooms are always clean and it's a very short walk to the beach... More

This wonderful 16 unit motel located at 229 Poplar in Wildwood used to be called El Coqui. It was renamed to The William Inn. Our family of 5(2 adults, 3 kids) stayed there for the first time in July 2006 and we were simply amazed how well it was run by the owner Lorraine, her son Michael and daughter Pam.... More
