My boyfriend and I were looking for a decent place to stay for a weekend trip to Wildwood. While pricey for the level of accomodation, the El Ray Motel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room is VERY small and there is an issue with humidity (the floors were slippery the entire time even though... More

We stay at the El Ray for a week while our daughter dances at the Convention Center. The proximity to the boardwalk is optimum, the rooms clean and well kept, but most of all the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Hanna do all they can to ensure that our stay is top notch. They are so friendly, welcoming, and attend to... More

This place had what my wife and I were looking for. Room was a decent size at a great price. The owners were great people who made sure we had everything we need on daily basis. The pool was clean as was the property. The distance to the beach, boardwalk, and the liquor store (LoLz) was very close as well.... More

This was, BY FAR, the WORST experience I have ever had staying in a motel. It was incredibly dirty and bugs were entering the room through the holes in the screens and the space underneath the door. We were so uncomfortable that my husband and I actually slept in the back of my SUV and went home a day early... More

I've been going to the El Ray with my family for about 3 years and it gets better every time. The owners are amazing people and the rooms are clean and neat. They just did remodeling and repainting and everything looks amazing. Highly recommended!
