lets start with the positive, great location and good air conditioner, the negative... too much to say, my room smells like cigarettes , it had no table , no chairs, no phone, no WiFi, it wasn't completely clean, it had two small beds, one of them sunk down when you sat on it, overall it was too pricey for that...

There was too much smoking going on! The people there smoked on a daily. They would smoke by the pool and by the rooms. I stood there with my husband and 3 children which are not around smokers. The price was decent, it was. Half the time we weren't there. There was no Wi-Fi, no outlets, and no room service.... More

Stayed here out of an issue that arose from our norm. Worst place ever. I read that it's a party spot. They're not lying. We stayed on the (newer) side near the ice cream shop after they gave us the choice of staying near the pool (super pungent smoke smell). The new side we stayed on was nice inside -... More

they are older rooms but very clean, the maid is there every morning to clean. the pool is very clean,the staff members are curtious.and it is very close to the boardwalk. if you like ice cream like i do,it's right nextdoor. the prices for the rooms overnight are very very reasonable. i would vacation here anytime.

Not a bad place to stay. It has a great view but more importantly it is very close to the boardwalk! There is so much to do in Wilwood and on the boardwalk you truly won't care what your hotel room is lkke because you wont be spending alot of time in it.

When I stood here I did not expect five star accommodations based off what we paid to stay on a Saturday night during the peak season. This motel is definitely older. The beds aren't the best. The pool is fairly clean. The rooms are generally small and aren't in the best of shape. However, the owner is super nice and... More

Housekeeping was below average. I chose not to roam around in my socks or bare feet. The room was small with two double beds, a dresser, very old tv set and tiny refrigerator, no table and NO spare outlets for computer or cell phone charging. The bottom of the door was severely corroded and didn’t feel secure. The motel rents... More

This place was right near the boardwalk! The price was great and they even offered an option of a late checkout that you could pay extra for. For us it was worth it! The pool was clean. The staff was awesome! We had no problems! I will stay here again! Recommended to my family and friends!
