I stayed at this motel for 4th of July weekend and it was awesome! I can't even believe the negative comments below. My family and I chose to stay here because of it's location (away from the noisy motels by the boardwalk, but close enough to the beach) and it was great. The staff was very welcoming and accommodated our... More

The rooms look nothing like the pictures shown on their website! The room was small and very outdated. The tv had horrible reception and it was a tube tv. Their were no phones in the room. The bathroom was so small and confined you really could not move around much at all a big person would really have problems! The... More

Hi Pam, Thank you for your review of our 1960's Doo Wop Style motel. We just took the property over in May and you'll be happy to know we are in the process of getting new TVs, phones, and furniture this winter. I took all the pictures myself for the rooms and they were unaltered. In fact, I used my... More

I canceled my reservation 2 weeks ahead of time. The workers assured me that my refund would be processed. I called numerous times over the next 2 weeks asking for a supervisor because I had never received a refund. (Keep in mind Im paying for the interest in the meantime). I finally spoke to a manager who said they never... More

Vacations are supposed to be relaxing, and it sounds like we only added stress to your plate. I'm sincerely sorry for that, Meghan. Although, My records show you were refunded before you filed a claim with Discover just like I had explained to you on the phone. We were in the process of switching from our credit card terminal to... More

I recently stayed at the sandbox with my daughter and 3 year old grandaughter for a few days. The staff is very cordial and very accommodating. The motel is older, but the rooms and property are immaculate! I have stayed at far more expensive motels both chain and independently owned in Wildwood and have never such a truly enjoyable experience.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sand Box for two nights last week. We found the owner, the maids and the pool guy friendly and accommodating. The place is very clean and away from all the noise of mid-town Wildwood.

We were booked to spend one night at the Sandbox Motel in Wildwood. Luck would have it that we had scheduled our trip on a day when torrential rain was predicted. The day before we were to arrive, the hotel staff was nice enough to move our stay over one day. This allowed us two rain free days in Wildwood,... More

We're glad we could help you out! There's nothing worse than expecting a sunny beach day and having torrential rain instead. The next time you want a little vacation, we'd love to have you over. Best, Shiv, Owner More

Have always stayed at a hotel on the beach,but only needed one night. Most hotels don't let you book for one night. We thought we would try the Sandbox. Wow, what a surprise. Great staff, super clean, big shout out to Donna from housekeeping. This hotel goes above and beyond with extras. Won't be staying on the beach next year!... More

My wife and 2 children stayed in the Standard Suite (Room 7. If you like a view don't stay in this room.) for 3 nights. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Sandbox. The beds were comfortable, the AC worked, and the room had just enough space for our needs. There is some definite wear and tear issues (lights not... More

This hotel was amazing! We stayed in room 17. It had a king bed, futon, and a kitchenette. It was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 small children. It was by far the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They had a pool with a slide, a hot tub and a... More
