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 The first room given to me smelled extremely musty outdated and plain downright dirty.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

Being from South Jersey we go down the shore quite alot. We went for a friend's birthday in May, 2013 and spent 2 weeks comparing hotel prices. 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

Early reviews were poor but since new management in last couple years, the place is showing improvement. Not having pool would be very bad if you had kids. Can see Boardwalk and ocean from your room. Also having to double park and leaving your keys at desk is problematic if you go out a lot. Within one minute your on... More

Customer service was great...girls at front office were friendly and helpful. Room was definitely very very old and showed it, but overall clean enough. Obviously the housekeeper didn't clean the floor very well, with someone else's receipts on the floor in between nightstand and bed, but bedding and everything else seemed clean. Only real concern we had was the electrical... More

This was a good find. We made last minute plans to hit the beach in Wildwood, and came across the Dawn Motel. We were skeptical on what we were getting at the last minute and at a good price. Turned out better than we hoped. Now, this isn't a 5 star hotel. This a beach motel, so it's not going... More
