I admit it was my mistake booking there. I didn't read enough reviews... But this was the only downside of our holidays! The city is very fun (for a family with young kids), the beach is marvelous, the activities are good (but pricey)! But the Motel... the location is good but the smell, the greeting, the parking, the noise... awful!... More

What would you expect from a place that ask 100% payment up front? Rude helpdesk, dirty rooms (terrible mold smell, gum on walls, broken showers, hairs on beds, kitchen not clean). The internet was very slow and barely usable. I booked on the phone with them for 5 people, I understood from the website that their rooms had a sofa... More

They allow large groups to stay and they allow them to be very loud. I tried to checkout and they wouldn't give me a refund even after they rebooked my room. Very poor business ethics! the front desk just hangs up on me and won't give me the owners name so I can get my refund. I have taken up... More

We stayed here because it was close to Boardwalk and beach. This was my first time to Wildwood, if we come back I would spend extra money to stay somewhere nicer and further away from this end of the boardwalk. Our room was clean especially the sheets and the bathroom (the bedspreads were gross to me). No frills. Almost like... More

Great location close to boardwalk and beach. Room was clean and large although slightly outdated. Only disappointment was they charged for ice from the machine. Price was average during week before Memorial Day, very high during holiday.

The location of the motel was great, just minutes from the boardwalk. The room was just OK. It was clean and the linens were fresh on the bed. The beds were very uncomfortable, like sleeping on board. The room was very Iight once all the lights were turned off, making it hard to go to sleep. We weren't particularly fond... More

There is nothing extravagant about this place, but it has a great location. Clean but small rooms. The staff is always friendly. I vacation here yearly and can't complain. I do wish the would be a little more courteous toward the people who do faithfully come back. Offer specials, or update us with events in the area. We rent at... More
