This is the worst place we have ever stayed out. Upon checking in, the staff was on their cell phone so we had to wait. Right there I knew this was not going to be good. Our room was on the 3rd. floor. The stairs were filthy and no light in the stairway. The ice machine didn't work. The room... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms need updated and cleaned better. I think they need to invest in a steam cleaner and do the bathrooms. The parking is not so great. I would stay again because they are close to the beach. P,S, They say they are handicap assessable but not really, they have a ramp at... More

Worst stay ive ever had. There are rust holes on the walls, dirty curtains, dirty floors, and the sheets were filled with sand. We also found left over food in the microwave from previous guests. I honestly dont think the maids cleaned up the room.

Horrible motel! Mold, rust, holes in walls, nothing works! BEWARE! Very disappointed. Electrical outlets, wifi, and stove did not work. Holes in wall, rust in ceiling grid and baseboard heaters. Black mold poring out under tiles in shower/tub.

This was my first time staying here, so I did not know what to expect.I enjoyed how close we were to the boardwalk, and my 2 kids loved the pool! The staff was friendly and helpful as well. We will definitely come back next year,

My stay at Beachside Resort was a harrowing experience. The owners of this establishment are committing fraud (at worst) and abusing their tenants (at best). This reflects extremely poorly on Hotels.com. I originally booked this hotel on hotels.com, 2 rooms, 2 nights, for $1,454.64 (There was a convention that weekend so prices were high). Later that day, I was contacted... More

It was a disappointment of hotel. Even though We had a nice visit. The hotel needs to be repair and to be kept in good standards. Very creepy looking like rooms. The floor was dusty. The ceiling light didnt work. Beds poorly mad. Not worth your time and money.

We stayed here for two nights and had a good time. The room was clean and reasonably priced. They don't have a pool but they are very close to the boardwalk, and Wildwood's huge beach is right there. I would stay here again and recommend this motel.

We booked online, and when we got there we were told there was no reservation. Mind you we had the email confirmation and everything but they didn't feel the need to honor that. They tried to charge us $300 for 2 nights when we originally were gonna pay $188 because they knew we already drove down. The way they talked... More
