We stay at the Starlux twice per year for events we attend in Wildwood. The staff are so accommodating. Last weekend we stayed and I left my purse in a main meeting area. The night watch person found it and got it back to the front desk and myself immediately. We love how friendly everyone is. The Starlux is clean... More

We extended our trip to Wildwood with a one-night stay at the Starlux. The location and "Jetson-Like" decor attracted us to check it out. We typically have stayed several blocks up towards the middle pier but found that this location had a lot to offer. To start, the kids loved the pool and the ice cream parlor just across the...

My friend and I spend a weekend night (usually the weekend before Thanksgiving) at the StarLux every year. It began a few years ago with a terrific discount offer. I believe it was through TravelZoo. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have now made it an annual tradition. Jeane and I have been good friends since third grade,... More

The old adage is so true with the Starlux. It looks absolutely beautful from the exterior, but once inside it is an average hotel at best. I've been going to Wildwood for over 30 years now and have stayed in a variety of places, but never the Starlux until this past weekend. Always wanted to stay at the Starlux, but... More

My fiance's family lives in Wildwood anytime we go down to see them we always stay at the Starlux. It's beautifully decorated and whoever did their decor obviously put a lot of time and effort into getting the retro look just right. The staff there is always friendly and always willing to help with anything we may need. I would... More

Where do we start? We absolutely love this place and would never consider staying anywhere else in Wildwood. Once again, we stayed in one of the Airstreams. At what other hotel can one stay in a vintage 50's Airstream? We visit Wildwood for the 50's Festival so staying in the Airstream always makes it "that" much more fun. It's also... More

This is the third year I flew home from Atlanta, GA and took my mom to StarLux for a few days. You know you are staying somewhere good when year after year you see the same employees. To me, that says its a good place to work as it has steady happy employees. It's also a good place to stay... More

We attended the 50s Rock & Roll Wildwood weekend in NJ. What a BLAST!!! Even though this was our third year, this was the best! We stayed at the StarLux which was superb! The manager, Jackie, couldn't do enough to make our stay a memorable one. Clean comfortable room, continental breakfast including coffee offered all day long, heated pool, game... More

My family recently returned from a weekend in Wildwood, NJ, where we stayed at the StarLux Hotel. I LOVE this awesome place!! It's designed and decorated in a cool retro style, reminiscent of the Jetsons meet the 1950's!! It's conveniently located 1/2 block from the boardwalk/beach. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub, complete with 50's music. Our room... More

What a fun place to stay at! Entire staff extremely accommodating and friendly! Clean rooms with great retro motif, down to the lava lamps!!! Directly accross from the beach. Fun for families with children or teens. Nice game room with PacMan included. The best coffee included with the continental breakfast. Can't wait to go back.
