This hotel was nice, especially for Wildwood, NJ. Let's get on to the pros and cons. Pros: It has an AWSOME pool. The Starlux has amazing service. It has great amenities. It was clean. The Starlux is close to the boardwalk and beach. It looks amazing. Cons: It's expensive. The rooms are very small for a family of 4 even... More

First, every single person who works for the StarLux is a gem. It's not easy to be in the service industry, I know, I've done it. Each member of the staff dealt with our questions/concerns/requests with care, consideration, politeness and a smile. And this makes a huge difference in the entire vacation experience. We are a married couple with three... More

My family and I drove down 6 hours from NY to our first ocean vacation. We were 1 block from the boardwalk. Location was perfect. The hotel was great. Clean & friendly. Free washer & dryer on grounds too. Pool was very nice and cleaned daily too..definitely go back there.

We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the free coffee day or night. They have all sorts of things you can borrow - bikes, beach gear, dvds. Rooms were clean. Staff was super nice and friendly. Pool & hot tub were excellent. Walking distance to diners, beach and boardwalk.

I'm really surprised to see negative reviews but we had a fantastic time here. I traveled with my 14 and 23-year-old and my husband. We stayed in a two queen bed suite. The beds were very comfortable, and the sofa bed was almost as comfortable as the bed. We have had some terrible sleep sofa experiences. The room had a... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the twin bed rooms. The room was small but had furniture that made good use of the space. However if you're traveling with more than 2 people I would recommend getting at least the two queen room if not the a suite. Judging it mostly by its peers in the area it's... More

We booked this hotel for a one night stay and had one of the cottage rooms. When we checked in there was absolutely no where to park. I went inside after parking in a rear lot that had no signage and was unsure if it was for the starlux. Checked in by a young man who had no answers to... More

The hotel is in a perfect spot to get to the beach and the boardwalk. There's good food all around. The hotel itself is very clean and well kept. It's not as "retro" as it sounded like which I was perfectly fine with. The beds were soft and the rooms smelled clean. The bathrooms were a decent size, not too... More

COTTAGE ROOMS are located in a ramshackled two-story walk-up behind the actual hotel !!! You have to completely leave the hotel grounds and walk down the block. This tenement like structure is located on a busy street corner and the walls contain no insulation whatsoever. I was woken every morning by the alarm clock coming from inside our neighbors room...

On a positive note, the staff was helpful and it is close to the beach. I loved the idea of Retro decor but that is different from in need of repair. The only rooms available were in the cottage advertised as being renovated in 2013. I had no issue with the coziness of the room but the it was more... More
