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

The place looks like it's falling apart and they give you a prom deal but they should pay you for staying there . If you book your hotel stay they can also bump you into one of their sister hotels with no care in the world as they did to a group of young kids celebrating their prom from Staten... More

This seedy place will never be my destination again. If you are like me and you like nice places, this isn't it. Stained towels. Broken floor tiles. Crappy mattresses (which I stripped and used my own sheets and comforter) no seating or table. An old tube TV set. Broken soap dish in the shower. Jacked up a/c cover. No roller... More

We stayed here for a quick weekend getaway and because it was close the the boardwalk. It was inexpensive but you definitely get what you pay for. There are definitely nicer places in Wildwood. The beds were flimsy, no towels in the bathroom. There is also no pool. I could hear people outside the room talking loudly during the night.... More

Not saying this hotel was "horrible" but it is not one of your "finer" hotels in Wildwood. First off, the location is great. We came to Wildwood for NYE and of course the choices for hotels this time of year is slim pickings. We found this place to be open and close to where we wanted to go so we... More
