We decided at the last minute to go to the shore for the weekend. After calling many places that were booked I found a room here because there was a cancellation. Lucky for us they had a 2-room efficiency on the 4th floor. You can see the ocean & boardwalk from the 4th floor. (You see a parking lot from... More

Though I'm glad that we were able to find you a great room for your Jersey shore vacation, I'm disappointed that you were underwhelmed by your stay here. You should be able to kick back and enjoy a relaxing vacation with us. Since we've been a staple in Wildwood since '71, we do like to maintain some of our vintage... More

I have stayed at other places in that area and as far as attention to guests is concerned, these people are great. I have stayed there twice so far this summer [2014] for a total of 7 nights. As places in Wildwood NJ go this place is right on the Boardwalk. You are minutes from the kids attractions on the... More

My first time in Wildwood was during Memorial Day in 2014. I found the Aquarius and booked a room and was very pleased with the service. I was cordially greeted by a young man at the front desk who helped provide us with an oceanfront room with a spectacular view. The entire staff at the Aquarius was very friendly and... More

I have been going since I was a kid. It is very clean well maintained. Close to,boardwalk and beach. Unfortunately the crowd that stay there isn't very family friendly. People drinking pool side, hookah smoke on the deck and making out in the pool. Not sure if its wildwood or just the Aquarius.

As a long-time guest with us, your opinion is very important to me, so I'm sorry to hear you've felt we're not very family friendly.

We stayed at the Aquarius for the first time this Labor Day weekend. Our room on the 4th floor had fantastic views of the ocean, the "Wildwoods" sign, and the boardwalk...along with the comforting sounds of "watch the tramcar, please" :). The room was clean and spacious, and with the full glass panels, you can sit at your dining table... More

My family and I decided to go to Wildwood for a vacation but did not have a reservation at a motel. We wanted a motel that was ocean front and in a great location.
