This review is very much a rarity for me, especially when it comes to mom and pop type businesses. It is not my intention to hurt the motel/business in anyway, but to maybe help them improve with my findings, and also to inform other travelers. I am not super picky, all I expect is a clean bathroom and bed; any... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and photograph the room you stayed in. Room 101 is our only room with a queen bed and pull out sofa bed. We recently changed it from two double beds, based on customer feedback. Your feedback is important to us! We immediately replaced the shower curtain and stained towels as... More

First impressions mean a lot. Bud, one of the owners, warmly welcomed us to the Alton the minute we stepped out of our car. Those lasting impressions didn't stop there. We were down the shore for a baseball tournament and we couldn't have picked a better motel. They had two bottles of water in each of our rooms with our... More

Nice small motel. Very close to the beach & walking distance to your local needs & access. Fair driving distance to other restaurants. Definitely ask about any specials before paying. Pool was nice, Billy from Philly is very helpful & friendly. Top notch service!

This was our second trip this summer to the Alton. The rooms are comfortable and clean with daily maid service. They also have a restaurant onsite, which is open Thurs-Sun. The owners, Bud and Julie, are friendly and helpful and ready to accommodate you during your stay. The location to the ocean and boardwalk are a close 5 minute walk.... More

So the noise continued until after 4AM. I understand that it was a Friday night and I wouldn't have minded if the noise went until 11PM. But this was not a Holiday, there was nothing be celebrated. And the actions and words yelled at me by the night manager were absolutely unacceptable and inappropriate and I was truly terrified of... More

The large penthouse suite was perfect for our family of 8. Plenty of room to spread out. The Alton is located right in the middle of Wildwood and the heart of all the action on the boardwalk! I will definitely recommend this motel to friends .

We decided last minute to stay overnight and after trying other motels with no luck we happened upon the Alton, I'm so glad we did. The room was great, clean and comfortable. And the staff was amazing, very friendly and accommodating. We arrived late and were able to still go swimming. Very friendly and inviting place to stay.
