Do not stay here. There are many more updated, cleaner and friendlier hotels. This place is a dive and the owners are terrible. Believe the other bad reviews. This was a horrible experience ! We had problems with the room and were supposed to get a refund (never happened). I think that they have a scam going. They have some... More

Great location close to the beach and boardwalk. Nice upstairs terrace with ocean view. BBQ facilities on premise. Nice outdoor pool. Fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in rooms which is very convenient. Owners are very friendly and helpful. But, motel is outdated and needs renovations.

As dirty, etc etc...oh we'll I guess the rumors were True for this motel in particular... To top it off the manager was even worst than the physical appearance of the building. We... More

Location is great nice room but very outdated needs new door knobs, and a new shower head . Owners are very nice people and do the best they can to accommodate you. Stayed I'm the efficiency room was nice but the wall splitting the room is quite an eye sore. Nice place to stay for a few days.

The owners were very nice. They had coffee and donuts for the guest in the morning. However the place is old and dated. The whole place needs remodeling. We had fresh towels each day. The refrigerator leaked. No ice available. If you can get it very cheep, ok. It was clean.

Out dated and dirty hotel. The couch in the lobby was old and stained. We got a room with a double bed. The room was very small. The bathroom was out dated and the overhead light flickered on and off. The sink faucet was scaly and disgusting. One nice thing about the bathroom was the water pressure in the shower.... More

The beds were so hard and they were not queen sized like shown on the reservation. The bathtub faucet was hanging out of the wall. The water for the shower was hard to use because the cold was hot and the hot was cold. The housekeeper didn't do a very good job cleaning she didn't vacuum. The balcony railing was... More

When we got there our door wouldn't lock. Instead of giving us a different room, they came out to fix it while we waiting for over an hour. It's very dated and dirty. Loud at night when you're trying to sleep. Never again. Much rather go to Star Lux which is right next door. They had a minimum of 3... More

First of all, those of you who said this was the best place to stay in wildwood either you're one of the owners and beefing up the reviews or you stayed at some pretty low, rotten places if this was your best. It's out of date, albeit I did find the room clean. I wouldn't sit on the lounge chairs... More
