This Motel is a Very Basic nice hotel. The staff were great and the rooms were clean. You can park your car and walk were ever you need to go. Just feet from the boardwalk and beach. Rates are great!!!

I booked my room 4 months in advance so I could have the room I always get. When I arrived I was booked in the wrong room and it did not even have enough beds. It had one! No other rooms were available. The so called manager blamed it on a new receptionist that didn't know what she was doing... More

The last couple of reviews really had me concerned about my stay (I booked a month earlier), but luckily I had a good experience. It's called Dawn & Nova because there are two buildings, we were in Dawn. The rooms are dated, but met our needs of a place to sleep and shower. They were quite spacious and a maid... More

The hotel management fails to show up on time every morning, it is especially important due to the fact they have piggy back parking. They left contact information but failed to answer the phone. When they finally answered it was usually with an attitude. The office does not open until 830 (providing management was on time even tho they live... More

Yes the location was great, but the customer service is terrible. There are a ton of hotels near the boardwalk. Not worth the stay. I would never recommend this motel to anyone. It's unsanitary as well. Overall, just a poorly run motel.

The only acceptable part of this motel is its location to the boardwalk. Past that, it is a terrible establishment run by truly mean spirited people. It was also overpriced and crammed to stay in. They just do whatever they want to people once they have your money.

I stayed here recently during family vacation. I've been coming to Wildwood for many years. This hotel is in need of serious renovations. It looks like it's been 20 years since anything was updated. It is close to the beach, that's all it really has going for it. Overall I was not happy with my stay and will find different... More

I stayed on a whim. I had a 3rd floor room 12. It had 2 double beds. It was clean enough to sleep in and shower. The Air condition was great it was humid so it was on hydro blast. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only complaint I had was that other guests were letting their children run up and... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The rest is old and worn down. I needed a hair dryer I thought this hotel would supply one. My mistake... FYI they do not have hair dyers. THank goodness they are close to a store to purchase one. Not sure I would ever stay her again. We had no... More
