Just got back from a short imprompt trip to Wildwood. This was our first, and last, stay at the ElRey Motel. Here were the Pros and cons: Pros; Just steps away from the Wildwoods Convention Center, where they conduct concerts, shows etc. It's resonably close to Morey's Pier, where all the action's at! The owners are hospitible and accomodating. The... More

Where do I even begin?! When we pulled up the building was clearly very old, run down, and in need of a complete make-over. However, I decided not to judge a book by its cover so I'd give it a chance. Upon checking in I met the owner (ROMNEY HANNA). I know he was the owner because he pointed his... More

My new husband and I stayed here for a weekend get away. The owners are wonderful! They take great care of you. The rooms are very clean and I can see the boardwalk from our room. Literally 3 min walk to the boardwalk. I would highly recommend staying here.

So this is my 5th year staying at the El Ray in May during Colorguard Championship weekend. Each year during off season the owner's make improvements to the hotel. This year it appears almost all rooms were repainted as well as the hotel itself. My first room had a leak, but it was due to recent plumbing work done to... More

The owner honestly made the trip, he was so nice and gave us a new updated tv. The shower clogged up and water was flooding the bathroom floor. Other than that, the TV, bed, the roof, and the pool was all nice.

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 But, motel is outdated and needs renovations.

Location is great nice room but very outdated needs new door knobs, and a new shower head .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.
