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

Rooms were clean and tidy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. And the best part...the beach was just seconds away. A great value and a memorable experience, this motel did not disappoint. I particularly enjoyed sitting outside my room on the provided lounge chairs, watching the ocean from just a short distance. I would recommend the Dawn and Nova Motel... More

Awesome Location near the boardwalk and conference center. New furniture - felt like home! It was the best deal we could find that close to the beach. Staff was pleasant and the rooms were nice. Great start to the summer for us.

Room are in very poor condition. The first room given to me smelled extremely musty outdated and plain downright dirty. I went to turn in for the night, pulled back the blanket and sheets to discover a horrific sight of stains which consisted of blood and body fluids. I would like to add that the day before I arrived was... More

Booked 2 rooms next to each other (6&7) - had to move from room (7) to room 8 as the keys didn't work. Room 8, the outlets were all wore out and none of them worked except the outlet near the top of the door (what a great way to blow dry your hair). Ants appeared overnight (Fri-Sat) all over... More

Thankfully a rather clean for the price. The staff was very nice and helpful but hated the fact that they make you give the car keys if you park behind someone in the double parked lot? Its a pain if you don't want to take everything out of your car. Not to mention that they have no elevator and our... More

We stayed 7/19/13-7/21/13 and had a blast. Been going to wildwood for years and staying at different motels each trip. By far the best location (30 second walk and you're right on the sand). Room was standard motel style, but very clean. No bugs or dirty appliances, nice big tv and comfortable beds. Would recommend checking out this hidden treasure,... More

She kept telling me "Call Dawn & Nova" but I had never even heard of it so I didn't. She finally got me two and we got a GREAT deal. cheaper than the... More
