There is nothing fancy or opulent about Dolphin Inn, but it is clean and two steps from the beach, which makes it good value for the money. The managing sisters are very nice and accommodating. I will certainly call them first when I go to Wildwood again.

Stayed four nights. Room was very clean and large enough, the area was quiet and safe, staff was friendly and helpful. Just two blocks from the ocean. Entire hotel is nonsmoking, but smoking is allowed outside the rooms.

Caveat: We stayed here on the last weekend the hotel was open in October, and it was only open because of a barbershop convention at the Convention Center--so we closed the place down. The majority of other motels were closed. This is one of the oldest motels in Wildwood, built in 1953, so it is part of the so-called Do... More

I felt that I stepped into a 5 star resort compared to others hotels that I stayed at in Wildwood. Wifi worked in my room, staff was friendly, and even let me check in early. The room was very clean. This is a great hotel.

It's our second time at the Dolphin Inn. We chose this motel because of the prices that are reasonable considering the area and its position just one block from the boardwalk. Private and common areas (swimming pool, BBQs, tables, chairs, etc ) are clean and overall service is great. The owners and the managers are very helpful. Rooms are clean... More

The dolphin inn was really great. We arrived kinda early to the hotel and Patty was absolutely lovely, she let us check in early and we were able to rest before a night out on the town! We asked her if we could stay one more night and she really went out of her way to get us a room... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 children for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. We did a lot of research before coming and booked this place due to the positive reviews. I have to say we were very disappointed. The accommodation itself is ok, pretty basic but clean. The wifi did not work at all in our... More

Motel M, Owner at Dolphin Inn, responded to this review

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the Dolphin Inn. Like you, we were distressed about the domestic conflict that occurred between two guests. As you know, this was quickly addressed by the Dolphin Inn management and the Wildwood Police Department. Your expectation that we should have evicted the relatives of this couple who were staying...

We chose the Dolphin Inn based on their fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor. I had never see so many positive reviews. This motel is in a great location at the quiet end of the boardwalk. Just two short blocks away from the beach entrance (although the ocean itself is a mile away (we clocked it!!)) The rooms were recently updated... More
